Zion Williamson has 57 points in his first two NCAA games tied for the most ever by a freshman. the only other to do that? Kevin Durant.

With the victory over Ohio State, Houston is back in the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since the Hakeem Olajuwon/Clyde Drexler, Phi Slama Jama era (1984).

Points in the paint: Houston 24, Ohio State 6. Confounding, considering how much Kaleb Wesson dominated off the block inside during the Friday win over Iowa State. The Buckeyes' perimeter shooting is keeping them in the game, though. They're 10 of 23 from downtown.

Houston's Corey Davis Jr. and Ohio State's Keyshawn Woods got into a scuffle just as the first half buzzer sounded. Officials are reviewing to see what exactly happened.

Fresh off a Houston NCAA tournament record seven 3s made, Corey Davis Jr. has two early ones from downtown against Ohio State. The Buckeyes can't afford to let Davis get going again.

Caleb Homesley, the star of Liberty's first-round upset with 30 points, has been much quieter this evening against Virginia Tech. He's 2-of-9 from the field, including five straight misses in the last five minutes. He finally made 1 of 2 free throws with 3:26 left to score his first points of the second half. With him in an offensive funk, the Flames have had so much more difficulty trying to score against the stifling defense of the Hokies. Liberty is shooting 38.1 percent for the game so far.

Virginia Tech guard Ahmed Hill, who's been having a running dialogue with virtually everyone most of the second half, just hit a 3 to give Virginia Tech its largest lead of the game and turned toward the media table and said ... we think ... "All Day!"

Texas Tech delivered yet another dominant defensive performance, holding Buffalo to 27 points below its scoring average. During one smothering stretch, the Bulls went more than 11 minutes without a field goal. As a result, Chris Beard and the Red Raiders are back in the Sweet 16 for a second consecutive year.

Liberty got 12 points off the bench — all on 3s — from 5-foot-9 freshman guard Darius McGhee, who's only scored in double figures twice since January, and the Flames mostly controlled the first half against Virginia Tech en route to a 3-point halftime lead. But the Hokies shot only 36 percent and seem like they're going to lean on senior guard Justin Robinson more than expected tonight. It's likely Virginia Tech finds a little more offensive rhythm in the second half.

The refs had to swoop in after Virginia Tech point guard Justin Robinson was fouled hard on his drive to the basket by Liberty's Darius McGhee. Robinson said something to McGhee as he walked away and several of Liberty's players got up off the bench. This game is getting a tad more physical, minute by minute.

Liberty forward Scottie James, the team's leading scorer at 12.9 points a game, continues to spend a lot of time on the bench in favor of reserve forward Myo Baxter-Bell. James was taken out before the first timeout, and really hasn't made much impact in the Flames' tournament run so far. He had only 6 points and 6 rebounds in 23 minutes in Liberty's first-round upset of Mississippi State. Yesterday, Flames coach Ritchie McKay said he expected James to bounce back. "I don't equate his impact on our game on his statistics," McKay said. "He didn't have a usual Scottie James night but I have every bit of confidence that that could change the next time we put the uniform on." But so far, it's been more of what we saw Friday.

Today's second-round game between Virginia Tech and Liberty is a rematch of sorts, one five months in the making following their Hurricane Relief Exhibition on November 4 at Liberty. The Hokies won that exhibition 86-70, with point guard Justin Robinson leading all scorers with 20 points. Robinson could play a big role in today's game in San Jose too, if he's fully recovered from a left foot injury that kept him out of 12 games before his return Friday. Robinson, the school's all-time assist leader, scored 9 points and 2 assists in 28 minutes in Virginia Tech's first-round romp over Saint Louis. "I think he's a pro," Liberty coach Ritchie McKay said yesterday. "He's one of the best guards that we've faced all year. So I expect him to have a major impact on the game."

Buffalo's fewest points scored in a half this season had been 30, per ESPN Stats & Info. Texas Tech has held the Bulls to 25 through one half in Tulsa.

Stat of the game so far: Texas Tech has 7 offensive rebounds. Buffalo has 4 rebounds total. Red Raiders imposing themselves in the paint at both ends.

It's defense vs. offense in the Tulsa regional, with a Sweet 16 berth on the line. High-powered Buffalo averages more than 85 points per game, fourth-most in Division I. On the other side, Texas Tech boasts one of college hoops' most hellacious defenses; the Red Raiders surrender only 59 points a game, third-fewest in Division I.
