NCAA Results
Illinois 57, Colorado 49
Brandon Paul and Brandon Paul and D.J. Richardson made consecutive 3-pointers to give Illinois back the lead with 6 minutes left and the No. 7-seed Illini pulled out a tough 57-49 win over No. 10 Colorado in a game of wild momentum swings Friday in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Illinois led by 16 at halftime only to watch Colorado rip off a 21-2 run in the second to grab the lead. The Illini looked desperate until Paul and Richardson coolly knocked down their shots to put Illinois ahead 48-44. Four free throws by Paul eventually put the game out of reach for the Illini (23-12) who will play No. 2 seed Miami on Sunday. RECAP

Indiana 83, James Madison 62
Indiana's got a few brutes, some big boys from the Big Ten who know how to throw their weight around. But in their NCAA tournament opener, the Hoosiers turned to their speedy, 178-pound point guard to make James Madison's knees buckle right away. Yogi Ferrell was the bully. Ferrell scored Indiana's first nine points and had 14 in the first six minutes as top-seeded Indiana powered its way to an easy 83-62 win in the second round of the East Regional on Friday. RECAP

Minnesota 83, UCLA 63
Minnesota's Andre Hollins led all scorers with 28 points and added nine rebounds as the 11th-seeded Gophers knocked off the No. 6 seed UCLA Bruins in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, 83-63. The Gophers advance to the third round in the South Regional to face third-seeded Florida on Sunday afternoon. Joe Coleman and Austin Hollins added 16 and 14 points, respectively, while Shabazz Muhammad paced the Bruins with 20. RECAP

Ohio State 95, Iona 70
Sam Thompson had career highs with 20 points and 10 rebounds on Friday night, part of a dominating performance by Ohio State's front line, and the Buckeyes ran away to a 95-70 victory over Iona in the second round of the West Regional. The second-seeded Buckeyes (27-7) are in prime March form with nine straight wins, including their last five games of the regular season and a run to the Big Ten tournament title. Forward Deshaun Thomas has led them in scoring during the streak, averaging 17.6 points per game. He had 24 points as the Buckeyes' fast breaks led to dunks and a season high in points, thrilling the large Ohio State contingent. RECAP

Ole Miss 57, Wisconsin 46
Unable to shake some cold shooting, the Badgers just couldn't shake the Rebels, either. A No. 12 seed, Ole Miss made the most of the Badgers' shooting woes in the second half, pulling away down the stretch to upset the fifth-seeded Badgers, 57-46, Friday in a second-round NCAA tournament matchup at the Sprint Center. Wisconsin (23-12) managed to connect on just 25 percent of its attempts from the floor, including a 1-for-14 stretch to close the game. It added up to the Badgers' first opening-game exit from the tournament since 2006 -- and just the second one-and-done showing for UW in head coach Bo Ryan's 12 seasons at the helm. RECAP

NIT Results
Iowa 75, Stony Brook 63
There's something about second round National Invitational Tournament games for University of Iowa junior Roy Devyn Marble. After scoring a career-high 31 points in the second round NIT game last season at Oregon, Marble netted 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting, including an 8-of-11 effort from the charity stripe, in the Hawkeyes' 75-63 victory over Stony Brook on in front of a sellout crowd Friday night on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
