Oklahoma State's Meaningless Buzzer-Beater Lost A Lot Of People Money

The Jayhawks move on to the Sweet 16. Again Michigan was given little chance to settle into play in the second half as the Cowboys came out hot, making 8-of-9 shots to build a 59-54 lead with 14:02 remaining. The Jayhawks had no problem eliminating UC Davis 100-62.

Over on the Kansas side, they're sitting at 29-4 overall on the season.

The Jayhawks are led by senior guard Frank Mason III, who averages 20.8 points per game. The Jayhawks outclassed the Aggies in every aspect, shooting 56.3 percent to 33.9 percent, outrebounded them 45-27 and had 12 more assists.

That game will begin at 5:15 p.m. ET on Sunday, and will be broadcast by CBS in the United States.

Arkansas advanced to Sunday's second round to face North Carolina. Sophomore McQuaid hit a big early three-pointer, adding five rebounds, three assists and taking a couple critical charging fouls with a strong defensive game.

It wasn't hard for Self to identify what went wrong in that game, answering "everything" when asked that very question.

Shutting Mason down seems very unrealistic - he's reached double-digits in points in all but one game this year - but Michigan State will need to find a way to at least contain him. What happened after a 5-17 start of the game?

The Nittany Lions extended the lead as freshman Denis Smirnov skated through the right slot and fed a backhand pass across ice to find classmate Nate Sucese for the backdoor tap-in at 13:24 for the 2-0 lead.

Regarding meeting another top tier team, Spartan forward Kenny Goins says "obviously a great team with what they've done this year but we've played with the best of them and we've seen Duke, we've seen Arizona, we've seen top teams all throughout the year and all on neutral sites so this is why we played the early season for". They've lost 3 of their last 4 games coming in and couldn't buy a basket at the start of the game - they fell behind by 12 points before the 7 minute mark. And while most of the names have changed since they last met, the smart money here still sides with the Spartans. "When you turn it over that much, it was pretty easy to come up with a solution - quit turning the ball over". Izzo's team also will have to play tough on defense and own the boards to keep this one from getting out of hand.

Women's basketball: Badgers fall in second round of Big Ten tourney to end seasonThe University of Wisconsin women's basketball team delivered an enthralling first-half performance before hitting a wall in the second. Nick Ward netted 19 points and Miles Bridges added 18 as the Spartans mauled eighth-seeded Miami 78-58 in Midwest Region action in Tulsa. This season is no different, as they finished ranked third in the country.

The Spartans are a very unsafe team for being a ninth seed. For the Oklahoma State Cowboys they could not withstand a second half onslaught from the Michigan Wolverines on Friday night. Can the Spartans hang on and make it interesting? Give me Kansas to cover.
