    (5) Texas 77,
    (12) Indiana State 61

  • Recap
  • Box score
  • Texas C Chris Mihm: 16 pts., 8 reb.

    The Sycamores could matchup everywhere else but got blown away in the middle.

    After hanging with the Longhorns most of the first half, Mihm powered a 13-0 run to close the half and go up 37-25. Texas: Saturday vs. (4) LSU

    Indiana State: Get home in time for next Pacers game.

    (4) LSU 64,
    (13) SE Missouri St. 61

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • LSU SF Brian Beshera: 9 pts., 2-2 3-pt. FGs

    Second of the treys was the game-winner with 17 seconds left.

    With Stromile Swift barely present, LSU fell behind by much of the second half, but never by more than four. LSU: Saturday vs. (5) Texas

    SEMO: SEMO of the Utah scenery.

    (6) Purdue 62,
    (11) Dayton 61

  • Recap
  • Box score
  • Purdue F Brian Cardinal: 18 pts., 7-11 FGs, 8 reb.

    Veteran came up big when game was on the line late.

    Dayton: Flyers home.

    (10) Gonzaga 77,
    (7) Louisville 66

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Gonzaga SG Richie Frahm: 31 pts., 9-14 FGs, 4-7 3 pt. FGs

    The guy who most needed to come up big did so in major fashion.

    The 'Zags began their second straight upset run by shooting 54 percent, while Louisville hit only 3 of 22 3-point attempts. Gonzaga: Saturday vs. St. John's

    Louisville: Postgame meal at Denny's.

    (1) Arizona 71,
    (16) Jackson St. 47

  • Recap
  • Box Score
  • Arizona PF Michael Wright: 19 pts., 13 rebs.

    With Loren Woods out, Wright's rebounding ability becomes essential.

    The Wildcats shot only 30 percent in the first half but the outmatched Tigers couldn't take advantage. Arizona: Saturday vs. Wisconsin

    Jackson St.: Tigers eye the long flight back.

    (8) Wisconsin 66,
    (9) Fresno St. 56

  • Recap
  • Box score
  • Wisconsin G Jon Bryant: 21 pts., 7-11 3-pt. range

    Bryant's shooting torched Fresno State's zone and triggered a 23-2 run.

    Fresno St. shot nearly 61 percent in the first half, but the Bulldogs were killed by the Badgers' outside shooting. Wisconsin: Saturday vs. (1) Arizona

    Fresno St.: Hopefully, not another nine years before Tark returns to NCAA tournament.

    (2) St. John's 61,
    (15) Northern Arizona 56

  • Recap
  • Box score
  • St. John's G Bootsy Thornton: 10-16 FG, 20 pts, 7 reb.

    Thornton came up with clutch baskets that kept Northern Arizona from making huge second-half runs.

    The Red Storm avoided becoming just the fourth No. 2 seed to fall in the first round since 1985 as Thornton and Lavor Postell came up with big plays. St. John's: Saturday vs. (10) Gonzaga

    Northern Arizona: Stay in Tucson and check out some spring baseball.
