Result Game ball to The Story Up next
(5) Iowa 77 ,
(12) UAB 64

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Iowa PG Dean Oliver : 15 pts, 5-7 FG, 6 asts

    Oliver led the Hawkeyes to an emotional win for their lame-duck coach Tom Davis. Iowa shot 56.5% from the floor. Iowa: Second round Saturday vs. (4) Arkansas

    UAB: Season over

    (10) Gonzaga 75 ,
    (7) Minnesota 63

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Gonzaga PG Matt Santangelo : 14 pts, 8 ast, 4 reb

    With Minnesota facing off-court troubles and missing four suspended players, Gonzaga capitalized on the timing to surprise the region's No. 7 seed behind a 9-of-21 three-point barrage (42.9%). Gonzaga: Second round Saturday vs. (2) Stanford

    Minnesota: Season over

    (4) Arkansas 94 ,
    (13) Siena 80

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Arkansas guards Kareem Reid and Brandon Dean : Combined for 19 points, 15 assists

    The Saints tried to bring their run-n-gun style to the Hogs, a master of the genre. The result was like Skywalker-Vader I, when a whimpering Luke got his arm chopped off. Arkansas' nearly 60% shooting from the field quickly shut the door on Siena's Cinderella hopes. Arkansas: Second round Saturday vs. (5) Iowa

    Siena: Season over

    (2) Stanford 69 ,
    (15) Alcorn St. 57

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Stanford PF Mark Madsen : Unstoppable in the paint, with 23 points (7-10 FG) and 13 rebounds. Perfect from the line (9 for 9), too.

    Alcorn State's consolation prize? They kept it close and put a scare into the Cardinal, a '98 Final Four participant. Too much Tree frontcourt was the difference, though Stanford (21 turnovers) better watch the carelessness in the second round. Stanford: Second round Saturday vs. (10) Gonzaga

    Alcorn St.: Season over

    (9) New Mexico 61 ,
    (8) Missouri 59

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • New Mexico SF Lamont Long : 17 pts, 12 reb, one game-winning shot

    The Lobos' win was about as pretty as its RPI rating heading into the tournament -- the same rating that had many up in arms about UNM's Big Dance invite. Well, pretty or not, skeptics can add one loss to their tournament bracket; New Mexico earned a gritty pass to the second round ... and our respect. New Mexico: Second round Saturday vs. (1) UConn

    Missouri: Season over

    (6) Florida 75 ,
    (11) Penn 61

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Florida SF Mike Miller : 15 pts, 7 reb, 2 stl

    Down 11 at halftime, the Gators picked up their intensity on both ends of the floor, holding the Quakers to 18 points while running and gunning to 43 of their own. Billy Donovan's young team responded to pressure brilliantly. Florida: Second round Saturday vs. (14) Weber St. winner

    Penn: Season over

    (1) UConn 99 ,
    (16) UT-San Antonio 61

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • UConn PF Kevin Freeman : 16 pts, 8 reb

    The Huskies had little trouble with their opening game, without coach Jim Calhoun, who called in sick. (Maybe he should sit out the rest of the tourney. Superstition and all....) UConn: Second round Saturday vs. (9) New Mexico

    UTSA: Season over

    (14) Weber St. 76 ,
    (3) UNC 74

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Weber St. SF Harold Arceneaux : Nicknamed "The Show," Arceneaux lived up to his handle with a memorable 36-point performance, carrying his team to the upset.

    A game plan on offense that abused North Carolina, a let-em-shoot-themselves-into-oblivion defense and the self-awareness to get the ball to Arceneaux and let him get the job done. As the clock wound down, both teams got tighter, but 39 superior minutes earned the upset for Weber St. Weber St.: Second round Saturday vs. (6) Florida

    UNC: Season over
