ELITE EIGHT IN TWENTY-FIVE WORDS OR LESS

XAVIER 79, WEST VIRGINIA 75 OT – The Mountaineers blew several chances to win the game. The worst being an inbounds play late in overtime when they left a three-point shooter (B.J. Raymond) wide open. He canned it. Game over.

NORTH CAROLINA 68, WASHINGTON STATE 47 – Carolina simply had too many offensive weapons for Wazou to stop. The fact that the Heels played great defense simply made it another easy win.

UCLA 88, WESTERN KENTUCKY 78
– Somebody dropped the glass slipper, and Western Kentucky looked like a #12 seed against a top flight UCLA team in the first half. UCLA was up 21 before the Hilltoppers came roaring back. In the end, the Bruins and Kevin Love (29 points) were just too good.

LOUISVILLE 79, TENNESSEE 60 – This game looked like Memphis v. Tennessee in different uniforms. It’s hard to tell if the defense and athleticism are the cause of the sloppy play, or is it just sloppy? There were 37 turnovers.
