The #3 Miami Florida Hurricanes shot nearly 60% from the field and the arc and with those digits should have won. The #2 seed Villanova Wildcats though shot a blazing 60% plus from the field and arc and sustained that shooting throughout to blow the doors off a solid 'Canes Bunch 92-69. A balanced scoring attack pushed 'Nova into the Region Finals where they will get arguably the best team in the Tourney the KU Jayhawks.
Speaking of KU grabbing an historic 100th "W" ran their 2K15-16 campaign to 3-4 as they methodically took apart a really good Maryland Bunch 79-63. The Jayhawks led by 17th year Senior Perry Ellis (who played with both Reaf LaFrentz and Paul Pierce in the late 90s at Phog Allen) led the charge again as he is averaging 21 ppg in the tourney. KU will have its hands full versus 'Nova.
With the Black Mamba in attendance OU All-American SG Buddy Hield became the facilitator as he dished out 10 helpers and scored 17 points as "Boomer Sooner" beats Gig'Em Nation 77-63. It wasn't what the Aggies didn't do but what OU did as his partner in crime in the backcourt Jordan Woodard had a game-high 22 points. The 3rd wheel for OU in guard Isaiah Cousins was off shooting just 1 for 8 and he cannot ditto that versus the Ducks on Saturday Afternoon.
Speaking of the "Quack Attack" Eugene their style of play overwhelmed the Duke Blue Devils as the Dukies never looked settled into to this one. That 82-68 final score wasn't nearly indicative of how the game really played out. Canada's Dillon Brooks showed his stripes by scoring 22 points leading a balanced attack as the Ducks shot nearly 50% from the field and 45% from the arc holding Duke to just 44% from the field and just over 30% from the arc. Duke Freshman Brandon "Plastic Man" Ingram from Powerhouse Kinston, N.C. High School Buccaneers (4 State Championships in a row when he was there) had a game-high 25 points in his last game for Duke before he hits the Green Room.
