Vols go overtime to oust Bulldogs
North Carolina became the first team to score 100 points in its first two NCAA games since Loyola Marymount did it against New Mexico State and Michigan in 1990.
No. 12 Villanova 84, No. 13 Siena 72
TAMPA, Fla. — Scottie Reynolds scored 25 points, and Corey Stokes added 20 as the Wildcats (22-12) beat the Saints (23-11) to reach the round of 16 for the third time in four years.
Villanova, one of the last teams picked for the tournament field, advanced to the Midwest Region semifinals in Detroit, where it will revert to an underdog role against top-seeded Kansas (33-3).
Alex Franklin led Siena with 18 points.
No. 2 Texas 75, No. 7 Miami 72
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A.J. Abrams sank two free throws with 9.5 seconds remaining, giving the Longhorns (30-6) just enough margin to hold off the Hurricanes (23-11).
Abrams gave Texas a 74-69 lead, but the Longhorns weren’t quite safe yet. Miami’s Raymond Hicks made a 3-pointer, and D.J. Augustin then shot an air ball on his first of two free throws with 1.8 seconds to play. Augustin made the second, however, and Texas was able to break up a long pass to preserve the win.
Abrams scored 26 points on six 3-pointers for the second consecutive game.
Jack McClinton scored 18 points for Miami after a 38-point effort in the first round against Saint Mary’s.
No. 1 Memphis 77, No. 8 Mississippi State 74
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Joey Dorsey had 13 points, 12 rebounds, a season-high six blocks and an untold number of bumps and bruises, helping the Tigers (35-1) outscrap the Bulldogs (23-11).
Three other Memphis players finished in double figures, including 17 each from Derrick Rose and Chris Douglas-Roberts, in the Tigers’ ninth straight win.
