Villanova won 76-66 in overtime.

This is UNCG's 3rd NCAA Tournament appearance. It also features arguably the nation's most electric player in Trae Young, who led Oklahoma in as a No. 10 seed despite going 2-8 down the stretch.

Hunter coached that game from a stool on the sideline because he had torn his Achilles' tendon celebrating Georgia State's conference tournament run.

Johnson came back with what North Carolina called a hip injury. Transition points. Kenny Williams has been on a tear lately, knocking down points off of pushing up the court.

Ja'Quan Newton, who hit the game victor in Chapel Hill just over a week ago, pulled the Hurricanes within one at 50-49, and the insanity just continued from there as both squads played a physical brand of basketball that was played nearly exclusively in a six-point window.

The difference in this low-scoring affair was the turnover differential: While UNC only committed nine on the night, UVA took excellent care of the ball, turning it over just four times.

Coach Kevin Keatts of the Wolfpack said at the ACC Tournament after his team lost to Boston College that he was looking forward to the NCAA Tournament. Cincinnati's about a four-hour drive from Nashville.

The other games in Nashville are Nevada-Texas and Missouri-Florida State.

The Cavaliers headline the South Region bracket, earning a No. 1 seed for the sixth time in program history. Tony Bennett's squad has been dominant all season. Instead, they wait to see if they get an NIT bid. Both of the Player of the Year Candidates were able to get quick shots all night which is something you have to go in your favor if you want to beat Virginia.

Western Kentucky (24-10) then scored the game's last 11 points before missing two shots in the final 20 seconds.

Add a win over No. 3 seed Miami on Thursday, and North Carolina had a good week in preparation of defending their national championship. State matchup in the second round of the NCAA tournament. He's won 47 NCAA Tournament games, a total that ties John Wooden for seventh on the all-time list. Duke beat the Tar Heels in the semifinals at Barclays last season. The Tar Heels are 33-1 in NCCA games played in their home state. That included two wins over Duke, a win at Tennessee, a home win against eventual Big Ten Tournament champ MI and a neutral-court win against Ohio State.

Two years ago, the Orange finished 9-9 in the ACC and lost their first game in the ACC tournament.

The Midwest looks like the bracket of death with No. 1 seed Kansas opening up in Wichita.

UNC Greensboro, the champions of the Southern Conference, is the 13th seed in the West and will take on fourth-seeded Gonzaga on Thursday in Boise, Idaho. The Bearcats will get a chance to win their first conference tournament since capturing the Conference USA crown in 2004.

Syracuse was the last team into the field. Ty Jerome had 12 points, six assists and six rebounds for Virginia, which will certainly enter the NCAA Tournament as the top overall seed.

North Carolina responded with a run of their own, scoring 17 of the game's next 21 points to give the Heels a 19-18 lead with 5:57 to play. The victor advances to Sunday's second round, to face either No. 8 seed Creighton or No. 9 seed Kansas State.

Wenyen Gabriel made a career-best seven 3-pointers without a miss and matched his career high of 23 points as the Wildcats defeated the Crimson Tide in the SEC semifinals at St. Louis.
