Baylor basketball Today Latest News: Baylor Becomes First 1-Seed Eliminated in 2022 With Upset Loss to No. 8 North Carolina

There will be a new men’s NCAA basketball national champion in 2022

Defending champions No. 1 Baylor became the first top seed to lose in this year’s tournament, as the Bears fell to No. 8 seed North Carolina 93–86 in overtime in Saturday’s second-round tilt

It was a monumental victory for the Tar Heels in Year 1 under Hubert Davis, but it was not easy and was certainly not without controversy

North Carolina built a huge lead in this game behind hot shooting from guard R.J. Davis and forward Brady Manek, who scored 30 and 26 points respectively

Per ESPN, Davis became the second player in school history with 30 points in a game against a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament since seeding began in 1979

The only other Tar Heel to accomplish that feat was Al Wood in the Final Four against Virginia in 1981

Baylor had no answer for Davis and Manek for a majority of the contest, trailing by as many as 25 points to the No. 8 seed Tar Heels. However, with 10:08 remaining in the second half, the game flipped

Manek was fighting for a rebound underneath the basket and had his elbow clip Bears forward Jeremy Sochan. After a video review, the officials charged Manek with a flagrant 2 foul, ejecting him from the contest. That’s when Baylor made its run
