  • Villanova guard Donte Di Vincenzo grabs a rebound next two Mount St. Mary's forward Chris Wray during the second half

1 This is the first meeting in the NCAA Tournament between the teams. UW's best chance to upset top-seeded Villanova at the KeyBank Center will be to have guard Bronson Koenig hitting from the outside, center Ethan Happ operating inside and Hayes using his all-around game to fill in the blanks. Vanderbilt and Northwestern obviously had a great finish as well. Middle Tennessee was actually favored by 1.5 over Minnesota before the game tipped off, and Xavier was only a two-point underdog against Maryland. When they lost to Butler for the first time, they shot only 23.1 percent from deep. Villanova seized the 2016 national championship with the most flawless full-court inbounds play ever run. They shot 54 percent in the first half to take a four-point lead into intermission. Lauri Markkanen and Rawle Atkins each scored 20 points. Villanova (8-27) shot a dismal 29.6 per cent.

#13 Vermont 70 #4 Purdue 80: After 28 minutes of keeping up, the Catamounts slowly faded away and allowed Purdue to take over the game.

P.J. Dozier had 21 points, 13 in the South Carolina's second-half rally. The Badgers held the lead for 35 minutes, but was as slim as one-point several times in the second half and didn't reach double digits until the very end. The Seminoles weren't very impressive, but had a 10-point advantage from the line which made the difference.

On the season, Wisconsin is averaging 72.4 points, 37.5 rebounds and 13.6 assists per game.

The two-time national champion acknowledged that he briefly accepted the MI job one morning in 2001 before a conversation with his wife prompted him to call back university officials and turn down the job.

Nova's Round of 32 loss to Wisconsin was one that not a lot of people saw coming, but those paying attention to the numbers might have. VCU managed to erase a 17-point deficit, but it was only to come close, not really make a difference.

March Madness kicks off Thursday and two Wisconsin teams are competing in the NCAA men's basketball tournament: the University of Wisconsin-Madison Badgers and the Marquette Golden Eagles.

Even the lower-seeded teams that won were not surprising. They don't get up too high.

Asked to explain it all a few years ago, when Wichita State made a surprise run to the Final Four, Bill Raftery of CBS said AAU and summer leagues have leveled the playing field by making everyone familiar to everyone. They can play fast or slow, with finesse or brute strength. Happ leads in rebounds with 9.1 and in assists with 2.8 per game. Tarik Phillip led WVU with 16 points, who'll face Notre Dame next. They willed the Badgers back into the game. That's a huge factor in so many games. Koenig is No. 2 with 142 points, also in 15 games.
