UTAH.NCAAs

Now that’s more like it as No. 1-seeded Villanova goes down to No. 8 North Carolina State. Can the Runnin’ Utes get past Georgetown to keep the Pac-12 perfect?

UPDATED: Utah wins, 75-64, and makes the Sweet 16. The Pac-12 is now 7-0 with three teams in the Sweet 16.

UPDATED II: Notre Dame beats Butler in OT. Who rooted against the Irish simply because you are a USC fan?

UCLA defeats Alabama-Birmingham so I will amend Andy Enfield’s famous quote below:

I don’t worry about them. I’ve made it to one Sweet Sixteen in two four years, and (Steve Alford’s) made it to one Sweet Sixteen in 18 20 years.”

Don’t Forget Dwayne Polee

Dwayne Polee committed to USC under Tim Floyd and then was dropped by Kevin O’Neill. He scored 15 points in San Diego State’s victory over St. John’s (a school he attended as a freshman).

Byron Wesley had six points in Gonzaga’s victory over North Dakota State.

OREGON.HOOPSMr. Joseph Young scores 27 points to lead Oregon past Oklahoma State and the Pac-12 is off to a 4-0 start! It’s only the second time since the round of 64 has existed. The other time was 1998. Maybe Andy Enfield is right that the Pac-12 is a tough conference. I’m still hoping for an upset tonight.
