In the spirit of the Sweet 16, I have provided grades for each team, highlighting their performances through the first two rounds of action. The good has been very good, with teams like Purdue, Duke, and UConn receiving top marks for their dominant play. These teams have earned A+ grades for their impressive performances.

On the other hand, there have been some disappointments in the tournament. Kentucky, the highest-seeded team to be eliminated in the first round, received a low grade for their underwhelming performance. While there were other teams that also struggled, Kentucky’s loss to a No. 14 seed Oakland team was particularly notable.

Overall, the tournament has been full of excitement and surprises. As we move into the Sweet 16, teams will be looking to continue their success and advance to the next round. Stay tuned for more updates and analysis as the NCAA Tournament progresses.

Purdue and Duke are two of the top-performing teams so far in this year’s tournament. They both received an A+ grade after dominating their opponents in both rounds one and two.

UConn also deserves recognition for its outstanding performance in this year’s tournament so far. The Huskies have won all three games they played so far and are currently one of the favorites to win it all.
