Result Game ball to The Story Up next
(4) Illinois 68,
(13) Pennsylvania 58

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Illinois PG Frank Williams 21 pts., 6-9 FGs, 3-5 3-pt. FGs

    With Cory Bradford going cold, Williams took over the shooter's role.

    The Illini took control early, and the Quakers couldn't catch up, shooting 8-of-28 from behind the arc. Illinois: Sunday vs. (5) Florida

    Penn: Back to the books, boys

    (10) Seton Hall 72,
    (7) Oregon 71

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Seton Hall PG Shaheen Holloway 27 pts., 11-17 FGs, 3-3 3-pt. FGs

    Career game capped by Tyus Edney-like drive for the game winner.

    A nail-bitter throughout, Oregon lost despite hitting the go-ahead free throws with nine seconds left because it forgot to defend Holloway. Seton Hall: Sunday vs. (2) Temple

    Oregon: Follow the Oregon Trail back from Buffalo

    (2) Temple 73,
    (15) Lafayette 47

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Temple PG Pepe Sanchez 0 pts., 15 ast., 2 TOs

    Mind-boggling stat line typifies Sanchez' selfless play.

    The Owls' suffocating defense and Sanchez' ball-handling made up for the fact Quincy Wadley was the only one who could shoot. Temple: Sunday vs. (10) Seton Hall

    Lafayette: Arm-wrestle Louisiana-Lafayette for name rights.

    (5) Florida 69,
    (12) Butler 68 (OT)

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Florida F Mike Miller 16 pts., 13 reb.

    Hit only six of 17 shots, but made the one that counted most.

    Poor shooting, especially on the free-throw line, hurt both teams, so it figured Miller's game-winning lay-in would come following two Butler missed foul shots. Florida: Sunday vs. (4) Illinois

    Butler: Practice free-throw shooting

    (3) Oklahoma State 86,
    (12) Hofstra 66

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • SF Desmond Mason 30 pts., 11-17 FGs, 5 reb.

    Despite the lopsided margin, Mason was only big-time scorer.

    Hofstra's dynamic duo of Speedy Claxton and Norman Richardson got off to a rough start and never recovered, hitting 13 of 39 shots. Oklahoma State: Sunday vs. Pepperdine.

    Hofstra: A not-so-Speedy return trip.

    (8) Kansas 81,
    (9) DePaul 77

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • SG Kenny Gregory 22 pts., 11-12 FGs

    Jayhawks' best weapon made crucial steal to set up tie in OT.

    Continuing a season tradition, DePaul blew a six-point lead in overtime, giving up the final 10 points and committing stupid fouls. Kansas: Sunday vs. Duke

    DePaul: The "Q" NBA countdown begins.

    (1) Duke 82,
    (16) Lamar 55

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • PG Jason Williams 18 pts., 7-11 FGs

    More importantly, seven assists and no turnovers.

    Duke turned a late first-half run into an 11-point halftime lead and built on its momentum in the second half. Duke: Sunday vs. Kansas

    Lamar: Get ready for the brutally hot Texas summer.

    (11) Pepperdine 77,
    (6) Indiana 57

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • SG Brandon Armstrong 22 pts., 9-19 FGs

    Scored 18 in the first half to trigger the Waves.

    Pepperdine's 12-0 run midway through the first half helped the Waves grab command of the game. Pepperdine: Sunday vs. Oklahoma State

    Indiana: Try to discover a solution for early-round losses.
