Default First-round upsets

I did some research on 1st-round upsets in the NCAA Tournament since 2001, here's what I found:

Every year had at least one:

9 over 8 upset
10 over 7 upset
12 over 5 upset

Out of 24 first-round games per matchup (i.e., 8 vs. 9, 7 vs. 10, etc) in the 6 years since 2001:

There were 11 (out of 24) 9 over 8 upsets (46%)
8 (out of 24) 10 over 7 upsets (33%)
8 (out of 24) 11 over 6 upsets (33%)
11 (out of 24) 12 over 5 upsets (46%)
6 (out of 24) 13 over 4 upsets (25%)
2 (out of 24) 14 over 3 upsets (8%)
1 (out of 24) 15 over 2 upset (4%)

With this in mind, I think it's best to pick:

2 9 over 8 upsets
1 10 over 7 upset
1 11 over 6 upset
2 12 over 5 upsets
1 13 over 4 upset

Anyone have anything to add?

I don't really think you can call it an "upset" until you get to 11 v. 6.

12 over 5 has a better win % than 11 over 6. Anyway, I just meant "upset" in the technical sense.

I've got Crieghton winning as well as Texas Tech, and watch out for Georgia Tech as well.

Nope, duke may be overrated but so are VCU and PITT.

Duke is going to the Sweet 16 again.

My upset picks:

Georgia Tech over UNLV (and then Wisconsin)
Villanova over Kentucky
Gonzaga over Indiana
George Washington over Vandy (yes, I know Vandy beat Florida)
Xavier over BYU (easy pick)

Maybe Davidson over Maryland.
Maybe Creighton over Nevada
Maybe Winthrop over Notre Dame
Maybe Illinois over Virginia Tech

I got UNLV getting to the elite 8. They'll lose to Florida there.

I want to pick a cinderalla in the final four, but I don't think Tennessee would really be considered a cinderella as a 5 seed.
