THE OTHER HALF OF THE ELITE EIGHT IN TWENTY-FIVE WORDS OR LESS

(1) MEMPHIS 92, (5) MICHIGAN STATE 74 – Like a lot of geniuses we didn’t think Memphis was this good. We were wrong. The Tigers were plus 11 in rebounds, had 7 blocked shots and 9 steals…and they made 26 of 35 free throws (74%).

(1) KANSAS 72, (12) VILLANOVA 57 – Twelve seeds don’t beat one seeds. Especially if the 12 seed doesn’t have somebody like Stephen Curry. The Jayhawks (34-3) are awfully good.

(2) TEXAS 82, (3) STANFORD 62 – The Longhorns got their usual good work from D.J. Augustin, and center Dexter Pittman did the heavy lifting against the Cardinal’s twin towers. A 20-3 run set up the Sunday game with top-seeded Memphis.
