NCAA Tournament results: Thursday First round scores and recaps

NCAA Tournament results: Thursday First round scores and recaps

They won the Big East Tournament championship there, and on Saturday, Villanova was driven to chase another Final Four from the friendly confines of a Garden of dreams.

Sindarius Thornwell had 29 points and 11 rebounds to lead seventh-seeded SC to a 93-73 victory over Marquette to close first-round play in the East Region on Friday night. I even mentioned to the guys having to being willing to die for the opportunity to play in a national championship. The Wildcats shook off a sluggish and unusual first half and downed Mount St. Mary's 76-56. The Wildcats saw a terrible performance from Kris Jenkins, who went 2 of 13 from the field and had 7 points in 33 minutes, but still avoided the unlikely upset and soldiered on. That certainly happened Thursday night.

Koenig said he got his second wind in the second half Thursday, and it showed.

A week before Wisconsin athletic trainer Henry Perez-Guerra held Koenig out against MI against his will, Perez-Guerra tried to do the same thing to Hayes at Nebraska.

The Wildcats likely can't afford another slow start against aBadgers team that topped Virginia Tech on Thursday behind Bronson Koenig and Nigel Hayes, two seniors with a pair of Final Fours on their resume.

For the game the Wildcats shot 52 percent from the floor, and held the Mountaineers to just 37 percent shooting.

This is Wisconsin's 10th trip to the Sweet 16 - all in the last 17 years.

No matter how the way the games went down, it was still a great day of action in the NCAA Tournament. If Wisconsin's strong defense can create problems for Jenkins, they could definitely put themselves into position for the massive upset.

Texas Southern brings the worst 3-point-shooting and defensive-rebounding stats in the 64-team field into a game against North Carolina.

For the Wildcats, senior Josh Hart led the way with 19 points.

As they prepared to meet a team as physical as any they've played all season, the Wildcats are wary of Wisconsin.

Since 2010, No. 1 or 2 seeds are 113-24 vs. teams seeded No. 7 or lower, with Villanova responsible for four of those 24 losses.

"[I've learned] how to remain cool, calm and collected during moments of either low points in the game or high points, knowing that you may get up, but it may not be over yet", Hayes said.

Wisconsin called time with 20.3 seconds left and 14 on the shot clock. And that could help the Badgers, who have seemingly flipped a switch since losing five of their last seven games in conference play.

The thing is Wisconsin struggled heavily down the stretch and their offense was at fault on a number of those nights. Tech finished with just 28 total rebounds, and the Badgers finished with 43. Villanova seized the 2016 national championship with the most flawless full-court inbounds play ever run.

Tied at 62 with the defending champions and No. 1 overall seed, Hayes received the ball at the baseline and made a gorgeous fake before tip-toeing along the baseline before putting in a reverse layup to give his team a two-point lead with just 11.4 seconds left to play.
