  • Final: No. 4 Kansas 93, No. 13 Samford 89

    The Jayhawks held on after a late scare by the Bulldogs. Kansas finished with five players with 13+ points. Hunter Dickinson leads the way with 19 points and 20 rebounds. The controversial foul call at the end is sure to haunt Samford.

  • Samford cut the lead to 1 and then appeared to block a Kansas shot at the other end.

    But a foul was called on this play. Good call?

  • This matter is not over yet. Samford cuts Kansas' lead to 2 with 38 seconds left in the game!

  • Kansas fans can breathe a little breather right now. Can the Jayhawks hold on?

  • Final: NC State 80, Texas Tech 67

    The 11th-seeded Wolfpack stays hot with an upset win over sixth-seeded Texas Tech. That makes the 6 seeds 0-3 today as Tech joins BYU and Oregon as losers on this seed streak.

  • Samford is back! Kansas was ahead 63-41 at one point.

  • Final: Washington State 66, Drake 61

    Washington State rallies and takes on Drake in the first round. Isaac Jones' 20 points set the stage for the Cougars. Wazzu advances to face Iowa State in the second round.

  • Washington State takes the lead in this clutch 3 by Isaiah Watts! The Cougars lead Drake 61-59 with 34.8 seconds to play

  • And NC State is about to put that against Texas Tech. It's a bad day to be a 6 seed.

  • We're headed toward a fun ending in this Wazzu-Drake game. Drake leads 58-57 at under 4 timeout.

  • People are behind the underdog Wolfpack and their big man.

  • Could another 6 seeds drop today? Texas Tech is in big trouble vs. NC State

  • Kansas cruises against Samford

  • Final: Tennessee 83, St. Peter's 49

    Dalton Knecht scored 23 points to lead the Vols to a big first-round win. Tennessee will face Texas in the second round on Saturday.

  • Drake launched a 6-0 run to start the second half to take a 35-33 lead over Wazoo
