NCAA Bracket 2011: Updated Printable Bracket With Sweet 16 Field

We're down to 16 survivors in the NCAA Tournament bracket after the weekend's round of 32 ended with a bang. It was all about upsets and wild finishes on Sunday as the final eight teams book trips to the Sweet 16 and broke many brackets along the way.

The updated 2011 NCAA Tournament printable bracket can be found here.

On Sunday, upsets were the name of the game as double-digit seeds were advancing left and right. The day started off with a bang as North Carolina and Washington went at it for 40 minutes, with North Carolina hanging on for the 88-86 win. Duke and Michigan kept it rolling in the next matchup with another close finish as the Blue Devils escaped with a 73-71 win. After an action-packed early session, Ohio State went the drama-free route, cruising to a 98-66 win over George Mason.

Texas and Arizona had what may have been the wildest finish of the day after a late five-second violation gave Arizona the ball and a chance to win with under 10 seconds to go. Derrick Williams capitalized, making a lay-in and drawing a foul to give Arizona a 70-69 win. Within minutes of each other, No. 11 seeds Marquette and VCU pulled off upsets, knocking off Syracuse and Purdue, respectively. Kansas made sure it wouldn't be upset while cruising to a 73-59 win over Illinois.
