Welcome back to BracketRacket, the one-stop shop for all your NCAA tournament needs.
Today, we see what happens when Ohio State hits a buzzer beater, ride shotgun with NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler and see why the cool kids are referring to Fort Myers, Fla., as ''Dunk City.''
But first, let's acquaint ourselves with the Sweet 16, shall we?
REGIONAL SEMIS SET
On a day that boasted several close-but-not-quite upset threats, Florida Gulf Coast (aka. Dunk City or Florida Dunk Coast) bucked things with a 10-point win over San Diego State to become the first No. 15 seed ever in the Sweet 16. Indiana and Ohio State beat even lower seeded teams Sunday - and had much more stressful games.
''These guys are rock stars,'' TBS announcer Len Elmore said as a few Eagles players walked up into the stands at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia to nab some seats during the first half of the Creighton-Duke game.

The shot went up, and all John Craft paid attention to was its arc.
It hadn't been a pretty last few minutes for his son, pesky and reliable Ohio State junior guard Aaron Craft. With 4:40 left in the game, Aaron Craft stood at the foul line, his Buckeyes up six on an Iowa State team that had made more 3-pointers this season than any team in college hoops. Iowa State was a team...
Aaron Craft just hit the shot of the NCAA Tournament – well, so far. His buzzer-beating 3-pointer gave Ohio State the win over Iowa State and put the Buckeyes back in the Sweet 16.
With the score tied at 75-75, the Buckeyes had the final possession of the game. Craft dribbled the clock down, seemingly almost running out of time, and pulled up and nailed the game-winner at the...
We were waiting for the first buzzer-beater of the weekend, but we will have to settle for .5 left on the clock. Aaron Craft’s game-winner with a half a second left sent the Ohio St Buckeyes to the Sweet 16 over the Iowa St Cyclones: Craft and the Buckeyes struggled in the final 6 minutes, seeing a 13-point lead disappear. But they survived and now advance to play Arizona on Thursday.
We haven't had a true buzzer beater yet, but Aaron Craft's three pointer with .5 seconds left is the highlight of March Madness thus far. After struggling at the line in the 2nd half, Craft made the one shot that counted at the end, and led Ohio State to a 78-75 victory over Iowa State. Jim Nantz gives us a solid call on the buzzer beater, although I'm a bit disappointed...

When games get into the Round of 32 they are either going to be blowouts or nail biters--nothing in between. Teams pas the first round either got lucky or know how to ball. Over the weekend we saw plenty of both.

This one ended in a way that is typically meant more for...

I still can’t belive what I saw at the end of Ohio States’ game against Iowa State. You could have told me that Aaron Craft would step up at the end of the game to make a big shot. However if you told me that shot would be a 3 pointer after he had waived off the leading scorer in the Big Ten (Deshaun Thomas). I woukd have said, “My boy Aaron Craft must have been feeling...

Clyburn was called for a charge when he ran into Buckeyes point guard Aaron Craft near the basket with 1:41 to go Sunday. Replays showed Craft's right heel was at the semicircle restricting the area where players can take...
