First Round, Game by Game
East | South | Midwest | West
Result Game ball to The Story Up next
(7) Auburn 72,
(10) Creighton 69

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Auburn SG Daymeon Fishback: 16 pts, 4-5 3-pt. FGs, 6 reb.

    Hit the big shot every time Creighton got close.

    Auburn shot over 60 percent much of the game, including 11 of 21 from 3-point range, before nearly blowing a 15-point lead. Auburn: Second round vs. (2) Iowa State

    Creighton: Good seats available for next session.

    (5) Kentucky 85,
    (12) St. Bonaventure 80 (2 OT)

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Kentucky SF Tayshaun Prince: 26 pts, 5-9 3-pt. FGs, 7 reb.

    Gave the infamously poor-shooting 'Cats a lift inside and out.

    Stupid mistakes kept the Wildcats from closing it earlier on a Bonnies team that fought hard but shot only 36 percent. Kentucky: Second round vs. (4) Syracuse

    St. Bonaventure: Hopefully not wait another 22 years.

    (4) Syracuse 79,
    (13) Samford 65

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Syracuse PG Jason Hart: 17 pts, 7-12 FGs, 6 ast.

    Poise helped Orange withstand Samford's assault.

    Samford kept things close but was probably too one-dimensional to stay, getting 28 points from Reed Rawlings. Syracuse: Second round vs. (5) Kentucky

    Samford: We hear the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame's cool.

    (2) Iowa State 88,
    (15) Central Connecticut St. 78

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Iowa State PG Jamaal Tinsley: 26 pts., 10-12 FGs, 6 ast.

    Cyclones needed his torrid shooting when the Devils drew close.

    Despite Tinsley's effort and Marcus Fizer's (26 points, 12 rebounds) usual show, Central Connecticut at one point erased a 19-point deficit. Iowa State: Second round vs. (7) Auburn.

    Central Connecticut: Three weeks of watching "other" Blue Devils

    (1) Michigan State 65,
    (16) Valparaiso 38

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Michigan State PG Jason Richardson: 9 pts., 10 reb.

    The freshman's efforts under the boards ensured Valpo never had a chance.

    Michigan State did not play exceptionally well, but Valparaiso shot 25 percent, and that never helps. Michigan State: Saturday vs. Utah-St. Louis winner

    Valparaiso: No Cinderella this year.

    (3) Maryland 74,
    (14) Iona 59

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Maryland SF Terence Morris: 22 pts., 12 reb., 8-14 FGs

    First game in some time Morris played to his full potential.

    Maryland crushed Iona on the boards, 49-32, as the Terps ran to a 23-4 start and cruised from there. Maryland: Saturday vs. UCLA/Ball St. winner

    Iona: Riding a Gael Force home.

    (8) Utah 48,
    (9) Saint Louis 45

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Utah G/F Jeff Johnsen: 3 pts., 1-7 FG.

    Saved his only basket of the game for the clutch, giving the Utes the lead for good.

    The Utes somehow overcame the losses of C Nate Althoff and G Jeremy Killion during the game to give Rick Majerus eight victories in eight first-round appearances. Utah: Saturday vs. (1) Michigan State.

    Saint Louis: Get ready to watch Big Mac and the Cards.

    (6) UCLA 65,
    (11) Ball State 57

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • UCLA F Jason Kapono: 17 pts., 4-9 3-pt. range

    Scored all 17 of his points in the second half.

    The Bruins trailed by four at intermission before Kapono heated up from the outside, while Ball State shot just 36 percent from the field. UCLA: Saturday vs. (3) Maryland

    Ball State: Go visit alum David Letterman.
