Big East- 5
Big XII- 3
Big Ten- 2
Some nice games closed out the weekend. Say what you want about Lazar Hayward's step-over (dumb play, good call by the refs), Marquette blew its chances by allowing a three-point play with 48 seconds remaining. Michigan State survived by holding Southern Cal scoreless over the final 3:53. Louisville did not deserve to win, but still outlasted a game Siena squad.
As always, the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament lived up to expectations. With all but two of the top sixteen teams in the country still alive, next weekend should produce a few good contests, as well.
