March Madness: Final Four includes three powerhouses and one Cinderella

Underdogs steal thunder in Sweet 16

"So to be able to share that moment with him was actually real fun". The Wildcats defeated Texas Tech 71-59 to win the East Regional final on Sunday. "And for us to get in here, I think it's going to spark conversation about this, and I know the committees have such a hard job". The previous low was 24 in a loss to Texas in January. The Wolverines set a single-season school record with its 32nd win over Florida State in the Elite 8 game.

When is the Women's Final Four? "I think they're the best right now", Hunter said. "But we don't rely on our shooting".

"I'd prefer more games like that", coach John Beilein said afterward. Our guys take pride in that.

Six minutes later, as the Red Raiders started to inch back into the game, DiVincenzo followed a miss by Bridges and timed it perfectly for a rim-rattling dunk. "We're rooting against them today".

Jalen Brunson led the Wildcats (34-4) with 15 points.

"We take a lot of pride just knowing that the amount of work we put in to get here", Evans said. "They know they're going to have to go the distance (with a short bench)". One of those came from that first Elite Eight experience seven years ago which he's carried forward since. If they can, they can win this game and advance to the Final Four.

"She can just pick you apart".

"I really feel that our team is confident". "Every time you get to do it is special, every time you're on that court with those group of guys, it's special". The Jayhawks topped the Blue Devils 85-81 in overtime to send Kansas back to the site of its last national title, in 2008. Villanova went on a 32-14 run to close out the first half, taking the lead 36-23.

CONFERENCE BREAKDOWN: The Big 12 and ACC are leading the way entering the Elite Eight. However, Evans didn't seem to be there when the team needed him most. Villanova faces Texas Tech in a regional final on Sunday. Villanova had only one in the last three minutes but made its last 12 free throws.

Beard compared them to the Showtime Los Angeles Lakers that played across the way in the old Boston Garden.

"They're in great shape", McGraw said. "He's a multi-dimensional player".
