Freshest Dunk

Patric Young sets himself and throws down a one-handed jam with authority during the Gators' win over Albany.


Oregon's Elgin Cook comes down on the break and slams home the putback over a BYU player.


Fantastic freshman Andrew Wiggins skies for a monter alley-oop.

Biggest Upset

No. 14 Mercer over No. 3 Duke, 78-71


No. 12 Harvard over No. 5 Cincinnati, 61-57


No. 12 North Dakota St. over No. 5 Oklahoma, 80-75 (OT)


 No. 12 Stephen F. Austin over No. 5 VCU 77-75 (OT)












Best Game

St. Louis 83 - NC State 80 (OT)

St. Louis was down by 14 with five minutes to go and orchestrated an improbable comeback, sending the game into overtime where they would go on to win.


Texas 87 - Arizona State 85

This game went back and forth and was tied in the final seconds when Cameron Ridley grabbed a missed three-pointer and quickly put it back as time expired.


North Dakota State 80 - Oklahoma 75

NDSU led for most of the game, but near the end of regulation, Oklahoma surged ahead. Lawrence Alexander hit a crazy, falling-away three to force overtime and the Bison would take the lead in OT and hang on for the upset.


Stephen F. Austin 77 - VCU 75

Trailing by 10 points with just over three minutes to go, Stephen F. Austin connected on a miraculous four-point play with 3.6 seconds left to send the game into overtime. From there, the two teams traded leads and crazy shots before SFA came out victorious for the third 12-over-5 upset of the tournament.










Biggest Winner of Round 2

Adreian Payne - 41 points, 8 rebounds

Payne was a solid 10-of-15 from the field, but a spectacular 17-of-17 from the line as he led the Michigan State Spartans to a 93-78 victory over Delaware.


Doug McDermott - 30 points, 12 rebounds

The man who will no doubt be player of the year started off the tournament with a terrific game. He shot 57 percent from the floor and helped Creighton stave off an upset-minded UL-Lafayette team.


Jarnell Stokes - 26 points, 14 rebounds

Stokes took Tennessee from the play-in game, past Iowa and then past UMass with a dominating performance. He was 7-of-11 from the field and 12-of-13 from the line.
