INDIANAPOLIS — After eight games at four different venues in Indianapolis, half of the Sweet 16 is in place.

Some favorites advanced as expected, but Cinderella is alive and well. 8 seed Loyola Chicago upended 1 seed Illinois for one of the tournament’s biggest shockers, while 11 seed Syracuse beat 3 seed West Virginia.

And don’t forget about 15 seed Oral Roberts–the Golden Eagles topped 7 seed Florida to advance to the round of 16.

Other favorites–such as 1 seed Baylor and 2 seed Houston–advanced to the Sweet 16. In Baylor’s case, things went pretty much as planned while Houston had to rally past 10 seed Rutgers.

Here’s a look at the scores by region:
