Sweet Sixteen Day One

Southern Illinois vs Kansas

Kansas' run through the NCAA Tournament was slowed to a crawl by scrappy Southern Illinois.
The Jayhawks got up just in time to move to the brink of the Final Four. Brandon Rush scored 12 points without missing a shot, and Kansas eked out a 61-58 victory over Southern Illinois in the West Regional semifinals Thursday night.

Texas A&M vs Memphis

Forget those season-long struggles from the free throw line. The Tigers are making them when it counts, including Antonio Anderson's two with 3.1 seconds left Thursday night for a 65-64 victory over Texas A&M in the NCAA South Regional semifinal.

Pittsburgh vs UCLA

The second-seeded Bruins (29-5) were able to win at the line, scoring 12 of their final 18 points on foul shots to advance to play Kansas (33-4) in Saturday's regional final in a matchup of two of college basketball's most storied teams.

Tennessee vs Ohio State

Ohio State had a great comeback tonight, beating Tennessee 85-84 at the buzzer as Greg Oden rejected a layin as the buzzer went off. On a sidenote compare Oden, or Durant to Hawes, the difference is how much more physical they are under the boards. Nothing against Spencer, he will get there soon, but these kids are more mature, and polished at this point.
