The biggest NCAA basketball tournament upsets

Five years after George Mason made history by being the lowest-ranked team to ever make the Final Four, Virginia Commonwealth joined the rare group. VCU pulled off the long-shot win against top-ranked Kansas in the Elite Eight by holding the Jayhawks to 35 percent shooting from the floor and 10 percent shooting from three-point range. This game put VCU coach Shaka Smart on the map. VCU’s Jamie Skeen scored a game high 26 points against Kansas. Virginia Commonwealth University defeated the University of Kansas, 71-61, in the Southwest Regional Final of the men’s NCAA Division I Basketball Championships at the Alamodome on March 27, 2011, in San Antonio, Texas.
