Quick recap of Saturday's 2nd round matchups...

- West Virginia was simply better than Duke. I dare say they were more talented than the Blue Devils. Duke should not have been a 2 seed.

- Michigan State ruined one of my brackets by stiffling Pittsburgh. It was an ugly game... the type Michigan State loves to play.

- UCLA slipped past A&M. A&M led most of the game, but in the end UCLA made more plays.

- Stanford beat Marquette in OT. I thought Marquette had it won twice... once in the waning seconds of regulation and when they took the lead in the final seconds of OT. Lopez made a tough shot to advance Stanford to the Sweet Sixteen.

-Wisconsin crushed Kansas State. As great of a player Beasley is, he doesn't make his teammates better. I saw a lot of forced shots by him and the Badgers rebounded and converted it on the other end.

- Kansas beat UNLV behind a strong 2nd half. I thought UNLV would give them a better game... I thought wrong. UNLV couldn't stop any of KU's guards from penetrating.

- Purdue and Xavier played what seemed for like 8 hours. Xavier's balanced offense moved them on.

- Finally, Washington State destroyed Notre Dame. Like the game against Winthrop, their defense shut the Fightin' Irish down.
