March Madness: No more perfect brackets as Dayton defeats Syracuse

The 2014 NCAA Tournament has proven to be full of big-time upsets, and the third round isn't even over yet. Many were wondering if all these upsets would surely mean that no-one would win the $1 billion offered by Warren Buffet for a perfect bracket. Well, until 11th-seeded Dayton upset Syracuse on Saturday, March 22, 2014, there had been only one remaining and now there are none, according to Yahoo Sports.

After 32 second-round games of March Madness, there was one still just one shocking perfect bracket and it belonged to Brad Binder. He had even picked Mercer getting the huge upset win over Duke and VCU losing to Stephen F. Austin.

The 23-year-old had even gotten the first four games of round three correct as he picked Florida, Louisville, San Diego State, and Michigan to win.

Then, Dayton had to go and ruin everything.

Syracuse led the nation as the number-one ranked team for a long time earlier in the season, but then faltered late. Going up against Dayton, many expected the Orange to persevere, but they lost 55-53 thanks to going 0-10 from three-point range.

Brand Binder of Illinois was leading the way with his March Madness bracket, and oddly enough, he wasn't even entered into Buffet's Billion Dollar Challenge. Now, it matters none as no perfection remains.

It's time to see if the upsets continue.
