As the number of teams in the 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament dwindled from 64 to 16 this past weekend, so did the number of Seahawks players that have their college represented in the big dance.
March Madness' 'Sweet Sixteen' features the Kentucky Wildcats, West Virginia Mountaineers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Wichita St. Shockers, Wisconsin Badgers, North Carolina Tar Heels, Xavier Musketeers, Arizona Wildcats, N.C. State Wolfpack, Louisville Cardinals, Oklahoma Sooners, Michigan St. Spartans, Duke Blue Devils, Utah Runnin' Utes, UCLA Bruins, and Washington state's own Gonzaga Bulldogs.
Of the 24 players that had a rooting interest last week, 13 remain with a tie to the round of 16.
