Aaron Craft

Sweet shot: Craft trey sends Ohio State to Sweet 16

Aaron Craft hit a 3-pointer with a half-second left, and Ohio State escaped Dayton – a place of heartaches – as the lone high seed left in the NCAA tournament’s wild West Regional, beating Iowa State 78-75 on Sunday. No. 2 Ohio State (28-7) needed Craft’s only 3-pointer of the game – an arching shot over 6-foot-7 defender Georges Niang from the top of the key – to avoid yet another upset in the West. Four of the top five seeds have fallen fast and hard in that most-busted bracket. The Buckeyes’ 10th straight win sends them into the round

Tough to top Big Ten's start to NCAA tourney

Yes, I realize Sunday features four games involving Big Ten teams. And yes, I realize the Big Ten could go 0-4. It isn’t likely, but it could happen. Regardless, it’s impossible to ignore what the Big Ten has done through the first three days of the Big Dance. In a tournament loaded with upsets (No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast over No. 2 Georgetown & No. 14 Harvard over No. 3 New Mexico, among others) and near-historical close calls (No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 16 Western Kentucky & No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 16 Southern), the Big Ten’s 8-1 start is

Harris, Payne lift MSU past Memphis, into Sweet 16

Gary Harris scored 16 of his career-high 23 points in the first half to help third-seeded Michigan State cruise past sixth-seeded Memphis 70-48 on Saturday, putting the Spartans in the round of 16 for the fifth time in six years. Michigan State (27-8) will play the winner of the Duke-Creighton game on Friday in the Midwest Regional semifinals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Tigers (31-5) advanced in the NCAA tournament for the first time in Josh Pastner’s four seasons. [ BOX | AP RECAP | NCAA BRACKET | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT | B1G DUNKS ] HALFTIME: Gary

Michigan drills VCU, 78-53, advances to Sweet 16

Mitch McGary had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and fourth-seeded Michigan breezed through VCU’s vaunted pressure with a clinical performance Saturday, beating the fifth-seeded Rams 78-53 to advance to the NCAA round of 16 for the first time since 1994. Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. rarely looked rattled against VCU, and although Michigan (28-7) committed 12 turnovers, the Rams couldn’t turn many of them into quick scoring opportunities. McGary, a 6-foot-10 freshman, set season highs in scoring and rebounding. VCU had no answer for him around the basket, and when the Rams couldn’t create easy baskets with their pressure,

Nebraska Gymnastics

Nebraska wins 3rd consecutive gymnastics crown

Paced by a program-record 49.725 on vault, the No. 9 Nebraska women’s gymnastics team captured its third consecutive conference crown – the last two coming in the Big Ten – Saturday night at the 2013 Big Ten Women’s Gymnastics Championships. The Huskers amassed 197.800 points, a conference championship school record, on their way to sending head coach Dan Kendig to his 14th conference title at Nebraska. Nebraska’s crown marked the first time the program has earned three straight conference titles since 2001-02-03.

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
