Ohio State and Florida both avoided any upsets with some dominant wins over Iona and Northwestern State, respectively. So we'll focus on the last early game with Illinois and Colorado, which saw both teams go on streaks, hot and cold. In the end, the Illini prevail behind the efforts of Brandon Paul. They are set to face Miami and the only chance they have is to be hot all game long. Miami is too good to survive a cold streak like they had.
North Carolina in the first half had control over Villanova, but Jay Wright's team rallied in the second half. They dropped the deficit down to one with a little over two minutes left. Then, Marcus Paige and P.J. Hairston hit some shots and free throws to give the Tar Heels the win.
Let's see if there's another Roy Williams matchup with Kansas.
