Iowa State v Ohio State

If Iowa State guard Chris Babb had been able to take the floor in the second half this afternoon against Ohio State, the Cyclones might have been able to complete the upset over the Buckeyes and advance to the Sweet 16 in a crazy West Region.

But Babb couldn’t make it back after suffering this nasty ankle sprain in the first half. Keep an eye on the left foot and prepare to squirm…

Stephens’ Tigers look well on their way to elimination today against Michigan State, but the 22-year-old has ensured that he’ll go out with a bang. Have a look at the sheer athleticism on display in two of Stephens’ three blocks today…

No. 10 seeded Oklahoma was one of the darling picks for bracket fillers looking for potential first round upsets, and for the first half of their game against No. 7 San Diego State on Friday night, they looked the part.

After leading by as many as eight and holding a lead for the majority of the first 23 minutes however, the Sooners were outscored 37-19 the rest of the way, a collapse summed up perfectly by this Oklahoma fan in the background…
