Creighton beats Syracuse 59-56 for first upset of 2013 NCAA women's tournament

Creighton registered the first upset of the tournament and while none of the statistical projections had that one, kudos to Queenie for pointing out that Syracuse got a bad draw on Selection Monday.

Zone-playing Syracuse draws a three-bombing team like Creighton.

And sure enough, Creighton came in and shot 36 threes (making 11), Syracuse shot just 31% from the field and there you have an upset.

For Syracuse, the loss forces them to wait another year to win their first NCAA tournament game.
