  • Final: No. 7 Dayton 63, no. 10 Nevada 60

    What a comeback for the Flyers! They went on a 17-point run within 7 minutes to hold on for the win.

  • Dayton leads 63-60 with 15.5 seconds left. Can they complete the comeback?

  • Update: The Flyers are in the lead! They are now on a 20-2 run.

  • The Flyers are making things interesting after a 13-0 run.

  • Final: No. 11 Oregon 87, no. 6 South Carolina 73

    The story of the game was Jermaine Couisnard, an offseason transfer from South Carolina. He finished with a tourney school-record 40 points.

  • Ducks are in double digits with less than 2 minutes to go. It's not technically an upset because Oregon closed as a minor option.

  • Ducks are in control with 10 minutes left in the game.

  • Final: Illinois 85, Morehead State 69

    Marcus Domask recorded the 10th triple-double in NCAA Tournament history with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Terrence Shannon Jr. led the way with 26 points.

  • Illinois is in control. Can it prevent regret?

  • Oregon leads, but South Carolina blows the first half!

  • Meanwhile in Memphis…

  • Do you think Terrence Shannon should win today? What a buzz from the Illinois Star!

  • Final: UNC 90, Wagner 62

    The Tar Heels rolled in their opening game. RJ Davis led the way with 22 points, while Armando Bagot added 20 and 15 boards.

  • No surprise that 11th-seeded Oregon will give 6th-seeded South Carolina their all. Dana Altman is the head coach of the Ducks, who are 7-0 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. That includes a 12th ranking in 2013 and 2019.

    Altman's Oregon teams were known for going strong in a season despite starting in non-league play. This year the team lived up to that reputation, winning the Pac-12 tournament as a bid steal to secure its spot in the NCAA tournament.

  • The Tar Heels are gone. Armando Bagot led the way with 18 points and 14 boards.

  • If it were up to Dan Monson, Long Beach State's 85-65 loss to Arizona wouldn't be his final game as a head coach. Monson, 62, told me earlier this week that he hopes to be coaching somewhere next season and isn't ready to sit on the couch without a team to lead.

    “I really like coaching,” he said. “It has rejuvenated me.”

  • Final: Arizona 85, Long Beach State 65

    The Wildcats shook off a sluggish start and cruised to an easy win in the first round. Don Monson's time at the beach is over.
