14 of 16 left in NCAA come from major conferences
Upsets over, NCAA men's basketball tournament becomes a place for the big boys
By The Associated Press

So much for the little guys.

Instead of parlaying an historic day of upsets into a second weekend filled with underdogs, the NCAA tournament now looks like a who's-who of major college programs.

All but two of the 16 teams in the regional semifinals will be from power conferences. The lone exceptions: Ohio University and the winner of Sunday evening's Lehigh-Xavier contest.

According to STATS, this will be the first time since 2003 that 14 teams from the six major conferences have made the Sweet 16.

Among next week's matchups:

'No. 1 Kentucky vs. No. 4 Indiana in the South; No. 1 Syracuse vs. No. 4 Wisconsin in the East; No. 1 Michigan State vs. No. 4 Louisville and No. 3 Marquette vs. No. 7 Florida out West.
