(3) Cincinnati 72 ,
(14) George Mason 48

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Cincinnati SF Pete Mickeal: 18 pts, 6 reb Playing the ultra-aggressive Bearcats is often a terrifying experience. The Patriots can't be faulted for their 26.6% FG shooting or their 18 turnovers. When Mason gets back to northern Virginia, they should recommend Cincy's players to the Department of Defense. Cincy: Second round Sunday vs. (6) Temple

    G. Mason: Season over

    (4) Tennessee 62 ,
    (13) Delaware 52

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Tennessee PF Isiah Victor: 14 pts, 16 reb U-G-L-Y! Neither team has an alibi! This game was ugly, yes, ugly. The teams combined to shoot 30% from the floor (38-126), including 5 of 36 from three-point range. Throw in 18 turnovers each, and this was a game you hope you missed. Tenn.: Second round Sunday vs. (12) SW Mo. St.

    Del.: Season over

    (6) Temple 61 ,
    (11) Kent 54

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Temple PG Pepe Sanchez: 15 pts, 9 ast, 6 reb To call Temple an inconsistent shooting team is an understatement. Usually, wins are ugly -- and losses are uglier. There are, however, rare times when the shots fall. Combine 8-of-20 shooting from three-point range and the usual tenacious matchup-zone defense and the Owls have the formula for advancement. Temple: Second round Sunday vs. (3) Cincinnati

    Kent: Season over

    (12) SW Missouri St. 43 ,
    (5) Wisconsin 32

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • SW Missouri St. F Kevin Ault: 10 pts, 14 reb, first career double-double All season long, while UW was winning with low scores, we were saying, "They're doing it with defense." The flip side, of course, is "They have no offense," which came back to haunt the Badgers in a loss to SWMS that was more painful to watch than play. SWMS: Second round vs. (4) Tennessee

    Wisc.: Season over

    (1) Duke 99 ,
    (5) Florida A&M 58

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Duke's offense: Put six players in double-figures in this tourney tune-up Duke breezed, but did you expect anything less against a team with a sub-.500 record? Duke SG Trajan Langdon missed his third straight game with a foot injury, but it didn't matter. Brand, Avery and -- seemingly -- a cast of hundreds scored at will. Duke: Second round vs. (9) Tulsa

    FAMU: Season over

    (2) Miami (Fla.) 75 ,
    (15) Lafayette 54

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Miami F Johnny Hemsley: 31 pts, 5 first-half three-pointers The Hurricanes earned the school's first-ever NCAA Tournament victory with a barrage of three-pointers. It didn't hurt that the opponent was the Patriot League's finest, Lafayette, who had the heart, but not the firepower. Miami (Fla.): Second round vs. (10) Purdue

    Lafayette: Season over

    (9) Tulsa 62 ,
    (8) Coll. of Charleston 53

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Tulsa F Michael Ruffin: 11 pts, 11 reb Charleston spent much of the last week moaning about "respect" -- an undeserved mediocre seed, placement too close to Duke, yadda yadda yadda. If the Cougars spent half that energy on prepping for Tulsa, maybe they wouldn't have been staring at an insurmountable 21-point halftime deficit. Next for Tulsa? Duke. Next for Charleston? Ego re-evaluation. Tulsa: Second round Sunday vs. (1) Duke

    Coll. of Charleston: Season over

    (10) Purdue 58 ,
    (7) Texas 54

  • Recap
  • Purdue G Jaraan Cornell: 18 pts, 6-6 FT In a battle between two inconsistent teams, the Boilermakers jumped out to an early lead with the help of far too many Texas turnovers. By the time the Longhorns decided to come to play, it was too little too late. Purdue: Second round Sunday vs. (2) Miami (Fla.)

    Texas: Season over
