First two and a half minutes of the half for Udoka Azubuike: five points, two rebounds, one block.

How does Kentucky coach John Calipari have another young team rolling right now? His entire focus from start to finish is March -- get there and get through. "Everything is trying to say 'In March we want to be at our best.'"


Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Kentucky coach John Calipari, who complained about the Wildcats' draw before the tournament, jokes that the NCAA Tournament committee might want to reseed the bracket after this weekend's upsets.


Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Tennessee launched a furious rally late, but the Vols couldn't overcome Loyola-Chicago in the final minutes. This is a squad that just knocked off a co-SEC champion after defeating Miami on Thursday. If anyone thought this was a fluke, Loyola-Chicago proved they're here to stay with another great performance and poise down the stretch.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Kansas up 31-26 on Seton Hall at the break. Weird half. Feel like neither team is playing well. Devonte Graham really struggling to get going, but Malik Newman picked it up late. Angel Delgado carrying Seton Hall, but lot of mistakes for the Pirates (TOs, missed layups).

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

We're 15 minutes into the game: Angel Delgado has 12 points and 11 rebounds.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Loyola-Chicago's proving the win against Miami was no fluke. The Ramblers are giving SEC regular-season co-champion Tennessee everything it can handle, and then some. Heading into the game's final minutes, Loyola is holding on to its lead.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Seton Hall has six turnovers and six fouls in the first eight minutes today. Pirates have actually been doing a decent job on Devonte Graham (three turnovers), even used Ish Sanogo on him for several possessions.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Buffalo's short run in the NCAA Tournament is over because Kentucky's future NBA talent totally dominated all aspects of the game. Kentucky has relied on Kevin Knox and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of late but it was a complete team effort as four players reached double figures to get the Cats to the Sweet Sixteen

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Kentucky freshmen have scored 71 points against Buffalo today, the most ever by a Kentucky freshman class in an NCAA Tournament game

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's 26 points is 4th-most by a Kentucky freshman in the NCAA Tournament

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Desi Rodriguez starting tonight for Seton Hall. Myles Cale had started five straight games since Rodriguez's injury, but he'll come off the bench tonight.

Back in February during their four game losing streak, John Calipari told me he wanted more fight from his team. Kentucky has been playing aggressive defense and slowing down on offense since then. ‬Wildcats up on Buffalo at the half 51-42.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Udoka Azubuike taking part in warmups. Was moving OK, clearly not 100 percent. He also took 32 free throws, made 13 of them. Short on most.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Kentucky is doing what Arizona couldn't do against Buffalo: get to the rim and guard the 3-point shot. The Wildcats outscored the Bulls by 10 in the paint and have limited Buffalo to just 5 of 17 from 3. Also Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been unstoppable with 17 pts

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Buffalo's Bull had the better dance moves but Kentucky's Wildcat did a backflip so I think we all won

Excitement is in the air as Duke advances to the Sweet 16.


Tournament Challenge ESPN 

Just 0.3 percent of entries (57,060 of 17.3 million) correctly predicted UMBC, Kentucky, Buffalo and K-State in the South's Round of 32.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke completely overwhelmed Rhode Island, using its size and talent to its advantage to make it to the Sweet Sixteen. The Rams had no answers for Marvin Bagley III, who had his way in the paint all day and finished with a team-high 22 points.
