One Cinderella went down last night, as Cornell lost to Kentucky, but there are a couple more darlings to root for tonight. Omar Samhan and the Saint Mary's Gaels take on Baylor to try and advance to the Elite 8 with the only double-digit seed. While my love for Northern Iowa is no secret, one of the main reasons why I see UNI advancing is because of Michigan State's best player, Kalin Lucas, is tonight. Three Big Ten teams play tonight and look for the single performances of Korie Lucious, Evan Turner, and E'Twaun Moore to try and carry their respective teams.

Games and tip-off times:

7:07 PM - 6 Tennessee vs. 2 Ohio State

7:27 PM - 10 Saint Mary's vs. 3 Baylor

9:37 PM - 9 Northern Iowa vs. 5 Michigan State

9:57 PM - 4 Purdue vs. 1 Duke

Damnit. Damnit. Damnit.

Northern Iowa just knows how to play with the lead. Nothing about that half was dominating, hardly had an advantage other than on the glass, and you'd think it would be a tie game but they're still up 7 at the break.

Not seeing how they give up on that lead come the 2nd half.

Tennessee somehow with the upset. I watched that last 5 minutes and still not quite sure what I saw.

Evan Turner is turning it up, dominating on offense.

46-17 at the half? I'd say so..

42-39 Ohio State at the half, Baylor up big right now on St. Mary's.

13-2 run for Tennessee, early lead.

I have Ohio State, Northern Iowa and Duke all winning - torn on the Saint Mary's vs. Baylor, I think the Bears pull it out though.
