(6) Villanova 87 (22-2, 10-1) DePaul 62 (10-15, 2-10)

The Wildcats went bombs away on the Blue Demons. Nova shot 55%. They hit 15 of 26 from 3. They were also 18 of 20 at the line. Darrun Hilliard II popped 22 on 7 of 9, 5 of 7 from 3, 3-3 at the line. Ryan Arcidiacono was 4-4 from 3 for 14 points. Kris Jenkins hit 3-4 for his 11. James Bell scored 16 and JayVaughn Pinkston had a 14-11 double double. Brandon Young scored 27 on 9 of 17, 2 of 5, 7 of 11, for DePaul. The rest of the team was 11 of 37. I feel bad for Brandon Young.

(14) Kentucky 64 (19-5, 9-2) Auburn 56 (11-11, 3-8)

The Tigers had a 1 point lead the 8 minute mark. The Harrison twins powered a 9-0 that put Kentucky ahead for good. The Wildcats attempted 20 free throws the last 1:49. UK finished the game 25 of 40. The Harrison twins used the free throw line for their points because they, and UK, didn't shoot well. Andrew Harrison had 16 on 3 of 10, 2 of 3, 8 of 11. Aaron had 10 on 2 of 8, 1 of 3, 5 of 6. Kentucky shot 31%. Julius Randle had 12 points, 4-8, 4-8 at the line, and 12 boards. Chris Denson did a majority of Auburn's scoring with 26 points. He was 9 of 11 at the line.

(20) Memphis 76 (19-5, 8-3) UCF 70 (9-13, 1-10)

The Knights gave Memphis all they could handle. With 12 minutes left, UCF led by 2, 46-44. It was 53-52 Memphis with 5 minutes left before the Tigers woke up and put UCF away. A 15-2 run did the trick. Michael Dixon Jr scored 6 of those, David Pellom 4. Dixon finished with 10, Pellom 8. The Tigers leading scorer was Joe Jackson, who had 18 on 5-8, 1-1, 7-9, and also had 5 and 5. Shaq Goodwin finished with 14-6-4-2 blocks. UCF got 18, 6-14 shooting, and 10 from Tristan Spurlock. Isaiah Sykes had 14, 6 of 16, 6-3-3 steals. And 7 turnovers. He didn't play well.

(24) Connecticut 83 (19-5, 7-4) South Florida 40 (12-13, 3-9)

This game was 45-14 at halftime. USF didn't break 20 until 11:50 was remaining. UConn shot 53%, USF shot 24%. UConn hit 20 of 27 at the line, USF 14 of 26. Everyone on UConn scored. DeAndre Daniels scored the most with 12. Kentan Facey had 10. I've never heard of Kentan Facey so good for Kentan Facey.

BIG TEN

Penn State 66 (13-12, 4-8) Indiana 65 (14-10, 4-7)

The Hoosiers gagged this one away by going ice cold in the second half and having a costly turnover late in the game. IU was up 63-51 with 3:34 left. A turnover turned into a PSU 3 to cut it to 8, 1 of 2 at the line saw PSU hit 2 of 2 to make it 7. A turnover saw another PSU 3 to cut it to 4. A missed shot was answered by a PSU bucket. IU turned the ball over 3 times in the last 33 seconds. Down 2, Ross Travis was fouled but only made 1. Noah Vonleh had the ball stolen by DJ Newbill. Tim Frazier (14) scored a layup after a timeout. Yogi Ferrell missed a game winner for the stunning loss for IU. The Hoosiers turned the ball over 20 times. Nice win, Penn State.

Nebraska 67 (13-10, 5-6) Illinois 58

BIG TWELVE

Texas Tech 68 (13-11, 5-6) Oklahoma 60 (18-7, 7-5)

Texas Tech gave the Sooners fits in the first half. OU had long stretches of not scoring. The Red Raiders closed the half on a 13-6 'run' over 7 minutes. Tech was up 47-27 when OU went on a 21-4 run over 6 minutes. The Sooners just didn't have enough to get over the hump. 3 would be as close as they would get. A Red Raider 7-2 run did enough to give them breathing room. Robert Turner scored 16 with 5 assists. Jaye Crockett and Dusty Hannahs each scored 10. OUT was 6 of 27 from 3. Buddy Hield was 1 of 13 for the game, 1 of 10 from 3, for just 3 points. Cameron Clark scored 16 for OU.

Baylor 91 (15-9, 3-8) TCU 58 (9-14, 0-11)

Baylor shot the lights out from 3 as they hit 16 of 27. Brady Heslip had 24 by going 8 of 12. The Bears shot 53.4% and also pulled in 19 offensive rebounds. Kyan Anderson had 29 for TCU because they rest of his teammates went 10 of 33. Anderson was 10 of 17, 3 of 6 from 3 and 6 of 6 from the line. The rest of the team hit 1 of 8 and 8 of 12 respectively.

PAC 12

Washington 64 (14-11, 6-6) Stanford 60 (15-8, 6-5)

Washington shot 46%, hit 7 of 18 from three and 15 of 19 from the line to overcome 16 turnovers. The Cardinal shot 40%, 3 of 16 from 3 and 11 of 18 from the stripe. CJ Wilcox had 17-5 for the victors, Nigel Williams-Goss 16-5-5. The Stanford stars did not shoot well. Dwight Powell scored 18, 9 boards, on 7 of 16. Chasson Randle scored hit 17 points on 6 of 13, 1 of 6, 4 of 9.

Cal 80 (15-8, 6-4) Washington State 76 (9-14, 2-9) – OT

Justin Cobbs took over for Cal late in regulation. Cobbs scored their last 10 points. That included an 'and 1' with 26 seconds left to give the Bears a 2 point lead. DaVonte Lacy drew a foul then knocked down both to send the game into OT. In OT, the game was tied at 73. That's when Cobbs took over again. Cobbs hit 1 of 2 at the line, then hit 2 of 2 and then hit 2 of 2 again. Cobbs ended the game with a dunk to make it look not close. Oh, Cal fouled up 3 late in the game twice. Cobbs rebounded the crucial Washington St miss of course. Justin Cobbs scored 22 points on 6 of 11, 9 of 11 from the line, with 7 assists and 4 boards. Richard Soloman had 15 and 11. DaVonte Lacy blew up with 39 points on 10 of 20, 8 of 15 from 3, 11 of 11 from the stripe for Wazzou. Wazzou hit 13 of 28 from distance.

SEC

Texas A&M 83 (14-10, 5-6) LSU 73 (15-8, 6-5)

Not a good look, LSU. The Aggies hit 10 of 23 from deep. Jamal Jones was 5-10 as a part of his 19 points.

Georgia 75 (13-10, 7-4) Mississippi State 55 (13-11, 3-8)

MOUNTAIN WEST

Boise State 71 (16-9, 6-6) New Mexico 70 (18-5, 9-2)

Kendall Williams (22 pts) went 2 for 4 at the line down the stretch, which was why New Mexico and Boise State were tied with 43 seconds remaining. Ryan Watkins drew a foul and made both shots. Williams atoned for the free throws by burying a 3 with 31 seconds left. But Derrick Marks (11-8 assts) drew a foul with 14 seconds left, made both, and Boise led. With time running out, Hugh Greenwood (4pts) missed a jumper. Just like that, New Mexico stayed in second place in the MWC.

Fresno St 75 (11-13, 4-7) Nevada 67 (12-12, 7-4)

Air Force 51 (10-13, 4-8) San Jose St 48 (6-18, 0-12)

ATLANTIC TEN

VCU 92 (20-5, 8-2) George Washington 75 (19-5, 7-3)

The Rams held GW without a field goal for 6 minutes. Things went from 17-12 to 39-20. GW went on a mini run to make it a 12 point game but Juvonte Reddic threw down a thunderous dunk with a foul to pretty much end that. The lead was cut to 5 in the second half, but a 13-3 run in a minute and a half put this one to bed. VCU hit 13 of 25 from long range. Treveon Graham finished with 25 on 6 of 10, 3 of 6, 10 of 14 at the line, 10 boards and 5 assists to 0 turnovers. Melvin Johnson hit 5 of 8 from 3 in his 21 point outing. Briante Weber had 7 steals, 6 points, and 6 assists. Maurice Creek and Isaiah Armwood each had 17 for GW.

George Mason 91 (9-15, 2-8) UMass 80 (19-5, 6-4)

This loss might not cost UMass a tournament bid, but it sure makes a person do a double take. Mason dropped a 16-4 run on them in the first half and it was never close again. The Patriots slash lined 47% / 54% / 76%. Sherrod Wright had 22 and Bryon Allen 19 as part of four in double figures. Erik Coples had 15 boards. UMass shot 39.7%, 7 of 25 from 3 and 19-30 from the stripe. Trey Davis led them with 20, 6 of 12 / 3 of 6 / 5 of 6. That means the rest of the team was 4 of 19. Ouch.

Dayton 76 (17-8, 5-5) Rhode Island 69 (11-14, 2-8)

Richmond 75 (16-8, 6-3) Duquesne 58 (10-13, 2-8)

St Bonaventure 76 (14-10, 4-6) Fordham 65 (9-14, 2-8)

AMERICA EAST

Vermont 83 (16-9, 10-1) UMass Lowell 58 (8-16, 6-6)

The Catamounts stay strong in the A-East by shooting 53% in this drubbing. Ethan O'Day scored 18 on 5 of 10, 2 of 4, 2 of 2. Candon Rusin had 14 and Sandro Carrissimo had 13.

Binghamton 72 (6-19, 3-9) New Hampshire 71 (6-18, 4-7) – OT

I don't know what happened in this game without play by play. I do know Jordan Reed scored 16 (6 of 17 shooting (ouch) though) with 6 boards and 6 steals. Marlon Beck II had 17 points I just noticed, so I'm assuming he did something good.

UMBC 71 (9-16, 5-7) Albany 69 (12-13, 6-6)

Do know what happened in this game. Quentin Jones (16 pts-5 rebs-4 asts) put back a missed layup with 2 seconds left, then stole the inbound for the win. Nice job, Q.

Hartford 91 (12-14, 6-5) Maine 79 (5-19, 3-9)

BIG SOUTH

Coastal Carolina 83 (15-10, 8-3) VMI 78 (14-10, 7-4)

COLONIAL

The Blue Hens held JM to 32% shooting and 3 of 15 from 3. Delaware hit 42%, led by a monster 34 point game from Davon Usher. Usher hit 9 of 17, 4 of 7 and 12 of 13. He also had 8 boards.

MAC

Toledo 82 (21-3, 9-2) Ohio 76 (17-7, 7-4)

Ohio was up 1 when Rian Pearson went insane. Pearson scored 14 of 18 Rocket points in a 18-9 game deciding run. Pearson finished with a game high 29 on 12 of 18, 2 of 2, 3 of 6. Nick Kellogg had 21 for Ohio.

Kent St 62 (13-11, 4-7) Bowling Green 61 (10-14, 4-7)

Devareaux Manley was the man-ly, hitting a 3 before the buzzer for the comeback win.

Western Michigan 57 (15-8, 8-3) Akron 54 (16-8, 8-3)

Buffalo 75 (14-7, 8-3) Miami 62 (9-13, 5-6)

MAAC

Iona 62 (16-8, 13-2) St Peter's 59 (9-15, 5-10)

AJ English drilled a 3 with under a second left for the Iona win. English was just 1 of 8 from 3 for the game. That was the right one to make.

MISSOURI VALLEY

Evansville 104 (11-15, 4-9) Illinois St 98 (13-12, 6-7) – OT

Normally I write about how the game went into OT. There is no play by play for this game available so I can't. DJ Balentine had 38 for the Aces on 8 of 15, 2 of 5, and wait for it, 20 of 25 at the foul line.

Northern Iowa 80 (12-13, 6-7) Loyola (IL) 58 (9-16, 4-9)

Indiana State 68 (19-6, 10-3) Bradley 62 (11-15, 6-7)

Missouri State 69 (17-8, 7-6) Drake 63 (12-13, 3-10)

OHIO VALLEY

Tennessee-Martin 79 (8-19, 3-9) SE Missouri St 70 (13-13, 48)

PATRIOT

Boston 76 (18-8, 11-2) Colgate 74 (9-15, 3-10)

The Terriers hung on in this wild offensive shootout. Boston shot 53.4%, hit 10 of 21 from 3 while Colgate shot 55% and hit 10 of 22 from 3. Murphy Burnatowski had 27 for Colgate on 6 threes. Dom Morris scored 16 to lead a balanced Boston effort.

American 64 (15-9, 11-2) Lehigh 44 (13-13, 6-7)

The Eagles rolled behind 17 from Darius Gardner, 14 from Jesse Reed and 12 from John Schoof. John Schoof. Austin Price had 20 of Lehigh's 44. Price was 8 of 14. The rest of the team was 7 of 29. That's a bad percent.

Holy Cross 66 (15-10, 9-4) Army 63 (12-12, 8-5)

Bucknell 78 (11-13, 6-7) Navy 57 (8-16, 3-10)
