Wild night on the bubble. Syracuse got the biggest win of the night, beating Duke. Providence and Seton Hall both with huge wins, over Creighton and Xavier, respectively. Wake Forest and Illinois State kept their respective hopes alive, so did Vanderbilt. California had a major chance, but blew a lead to Oregon.
