Quick hit: What 'Havoc?' Michigan rolls VCU

Many experts thought VCU’s “Havoc” defense would give Michigan fits. Not so much. The Wolverines, despite committing 12 turnovers, steamrolled the previous Cinderella program, 78-53, en route to becoming the first team to advance to the Sweet 16. Read more about this game: [ BOX | AP RECAP | NCAA BRACKET | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT | B1G DUNKS ] Why Michigan won: The Wolverines’ guards deftly handled VCU’s vaunted “Havoc” defense, which led to many easy baskets. That’s why Michigan shot 51 percent. And when the Wolverines missed, they often got the rebound en route to notching a 41-26

Minnesota vs UCLA

Quick hit: Gophers turn it around

The Gophers often found easy access to the rim, hitting 50 percent of their shots. And Minnesota was on fire from beyond the arc, hitting 9-of-16 (56 percent). No doubt, UCLA missed injured star freshman Jordan Adams, as the Bruins had a short rotation. Still, Minnesota deserves credit. This was an inspired effort by the Golden Gophers, who entered the game riding a three-game losing skein and losers of seven of the last 10 games. No matter, Minnesota lives to fight another day, as Tubby Smith notches his first NCAA win as Gophers coach after two one-and-down trips—2010 loss to

Ohio State vs Iona

Quick hit: Craft keys Buckeyes' blowout

The Buckeyes shot lights out throughout the game, hitting 50 percent in the first half en route to building a 43-33 edge at intermission. For the game, Ohio State knocked down 48 percent of its shots. Aaron Craft was all over the court, impacting in a variety of ways. Sound familiar? The junior defensive demon had seven steals and seven assists, while also chipping in four points. And he played his usual suffocating defense, helping force 19 turnovers. A 10-point game at halftime quickly became a glorified scrimmage in the second half, with the Buckeyes notching an eye-popping 52 points

Colorado vs Illinois

Quick hit: Illini do it the hard way

It was defense that boosted Illinois to victory on this day. Illinois was especially stingy in the first half, which it allowed only 21 points and closed the final 7:05 of the half on a 13-0 run to take a 37-21 halftime edge. And the Illini showed an ability to withstand adversity in the second half, squandering a 16-point halftime lead and falling behind 44-39 with 9:00 left. But Illinois stayed composed and regained the lead, finishing the game on an 18-5 run. Read more about this game: [ BOX | AP RECAP | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT |

Indiana vs James Madison

Quick hit: Indiana flexes,wins easily

This game basically was over at tipoff, as Indiana outclassed James Madison—which had to win a play-in game to advance—in every facet of the game. It was a nice tune-up for the Hoosiers, who were just 3-3 in their six games entering the Big Dance after getting bounced by Wisconsin in the semifinals of the Big Ten tourney. Indiana shot very well, hitting 52 percent of its shots and 39 percent from 3-point range. And IU dominated on the glass, 40-29.

Wisconsin vs Mississippi

Quick hit: Badgers' shooting goes cold

The Badgers never got into an offensive rhythm, shooting an abysmal 25 percent (15-of-59) overall and 23 percent from beyond the arc (7-of-30) in the 57-46 loss to Ole Miss. Credit Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who deftly switched between a zone and man defense. That disrupted the Wisconsin shooters, who never got on track. The Badgers led at halftime, but Ole Miss ripped off 17-5 run early in the half to take a 47-41 lead with 3:26 left. The Rebels never looked back and cruised to victory. This was the first time Wisconsin lost its first NCAA game since

Quick hit: Burke struggles but Michigan wins

The matchup between Trey Burke and South Dakota State guard Nate Wolters was much hyped but it  didn’t pan out, as both players struggled. Burke missed his first eight shots and didn’t sink his first bucket until the 12:46 mark of the second half. The sophomore hit just 2-of-12 shots and finished with a season-low six points, failing to reach double-figures for the first time this season. Still, No. 4 seed Michigan handled No. 13 seed South Dakota State, 71-56. Still Burke found a way to impact as a distributor (seven assists) on a rough night that at one point

Michigan State vs Valparaiso

Quick hit: Spartans roll over Valpo

The Spartans were too big, too athletic, too strong and just plain too good for the Crusaders in this second-round game. In fact, the final score is deceiving. This game wasn’t that close. Michigan State played one of its most complete games of the season, being especially dominating on the glass as it aims for a seventh Final Four appearance under Tom Izzo.  Key moment: With 11:10 left in the first half, this was an 8-8 game. From that point, MSU outscored Valpo 27-10 the rest of the half to take a 35-18 edge at intermission. From that point, the

Ohio State vs Wisconsin

Dienhart: Buckeyes continue to impress

This is the Buckeyes’ third Big Ten tourney title in the last four years and fourth in seven years. No Big Ten team has more. Ohio State’s march to this point is impressive when you consider they lost Jared Sullinger and William Buford off of a Final Four team from last season. To win today, it was all about defense. In fact, these are the two best defensive teams in the Big Ten. And it showed. How rough was it? The Buckeyes shot just 38.5 percent. From 3-point range, Ohio State was 1-of-16 (6.3 percent). Deshaun Thomas led all scorers

Ohio State vs Michigan State

Quick hit: Buckeyes come through in clutch

The Buckeyes overcame a sluggish first half to push past Michigan State and advance to the Big Ten tourney title game for a fifth season in a row and seventh time in eight years. Is there any doubt who is the best program in the Big Ten? Of course not. OSU hit just 34 percent of its shots in the first half but rebounded to knock down 52 percent in the second half. The Buckeyes had just two players in double-figures, but they were biggies. Aaron Craft had a game-high 20 points, while Deshaun Thomas notched 16. The other Buckeyes
