    Mar 24, 2013, 9:44 PM EDT

    Florida Gulf Coast

    Florida Gulf Coast made history Sunday night by beating San Diego State and becoming the first No. 15 seed in NCAA tournament history to make the Sweet 16. With how confident, explosive, and dominating they have been in two double-digit wins in this NCAA tournament, how could they possibly have ended up with that 15-seed?…

    Mar 24, 2013, 9:41 PM EDT

    Florida Gulf Coast v San Diego State

    Entering Sunday’s contest against 15-seed Florida Gulf Coast, San Diego State ranked among the best teams in the country in regards to defensive efficiency (11th per kenpom.com). But in a 17-0 second half run the Eagles shredded the Aztec defense and the end result was an 81-71 FGCU victory, giving Andy Enfield’s program its first-ever…

    We’re still not sure how Florida will fare in a close game against a high-major opponent after the Gators’ 78-64 win over Minnesota, but coach Billy Donovan’s team almost manufactured a close game for themselves down the stretch. After leading by as much as 18 points with 17:18 to play in the second half, Minnesota…

    Minnesota v UCLA

    No. 11 seed Minnesota dug themselves to deep of a hole in their 78-64 loss to No. 3 Florida on Sunday evening. The Gophers were on the wrong end of a Florida blitzkrieg in the first half, helpless as the Gators drilled three-ball after three-ball and stymied the Minnesota offensive attack to open up a…

    Roy Williams

    Kansas’ Jeff Withey had his way with the North Carolina front line in a dominating second half that helped the Jayhawks to a 70-58 win Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16. He had 16 points, 16 rebounds, and five blocks and looked like a player at times with little to no resistance against him at the…

    Mar 24, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    North Carolina v Kansas

    With Ben McLemore playing as he did for the first few months of the season, it seemed as if the freshman wing would be the one expected to lead the Kansas Jayhawks back to the Final Four. But if the second half of Sunday’s 70-58 win over South Region 9-seed North Carolina reveals anything, it’s…

    George Mason

    George Mason and the Atlantic 10 sent out simultaneous and cryptic releases on Sunday night, with both scheduling a press conference for a “major announcement” by both the conference and the school.

    Mar 24, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Temple v Indiana

    There’s a reason that the slogan for the NCAA tournament is ‘survive and advance’. It doesn’t matter how you play. It doesn’t matter how ugly the performance is or how many points you give up to the other team’s star. All that matters is that, when that final buzzer sounds, you have more points that…

  14. Remember Aaron Craft, but don’t forget about the “charge” he drew

    Mar 24, 2013, 3:14 PM EDT

    Iowa State v Ohio State

    Aaron Craft’s shot may be the defining moment of the NCAA tournament so far that wasn’t an alley-oop that sparked a rap video. He’s a kid whose entire legacy is built on the fact that he’s a “winner” that played like garbage down the stretch — two turnovers, 2-5 free throws including two missed front-ends…
