Today the No. 2 seed Miami Hurricanes rolled through the first round of the NCAA tournament by beating the 15th seed Pacific Tigers 78-49.
The Hurricanes take their team name from a severe weather system that develops in the ocean. The University of the Pacific is named after an ocean. Can you guess what joke everyone made on Twitter?
HURRICANE TRACKER: The calm is over. Deadly back half of the storm is on shore. Already reports of significant damage to Pacific #CanesNCAA

Good job, everyone! Here's hoping Florida Gulf Coast somehow has some crazy Cinderella run and we can do it all again in the Final Four.
