Alabama is OUT of March Madness in the biggest shock of the tournament so far as San Diego State knocks out favorite to reach first Elite Eight ever – as star man Brandon Miller struggles
San Diego State has reached the Elite Eight at March Madness for the first time in its history, producing a remarkable shock to send No 1 seed and tournament favorite Alabama home.
The Crimson Tide’s star man Brandon Miller suffered a nightmare evening in Louisville, Kentucky, going 3-18 from the field and scoring just nine points.
For San Diego State, it was Darrion Trammell who top-scored with 21 points, helping his side to a first ever win over a No 1 seed at the NCAA Tournament.
Incredibly, if Miami beat Houston, it will now be the first ever March Madness tournament without a No 1 seed in the Elite Eight.
