That's almost half of the 44 points Syracuse scored in an ugly 16-point loss in Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 24. Newman finished with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists.

Kansas will face the victor of the Midwest Region's late Friday game between No. 2 Duke and No. 11 Syracuse.

ON A ROLL: Michigan's 12-game winning streak is the second-longest in the nation thanks to the Seminoles, who ended the Zags' 16-game winning streak.

"I'd like nothing more than to take my team this year to San Antonio and let them experience what the best of the best is in college basketball".

Notes: Clemson tied a program record for wins in a season (25) ... they also broke a program record for ACC wins in a regular season with 11 ...

The Blue Devils didn't find a lot of freedom against the Orange's zone. "So one of the reasons they're so hard to guard is they've got a center that scores if he catches it deep, and he's bigger than everybody on the floor so he does get position, and then you've got guards that can all make shots and drive by you, and they play with great spacing".

While Kansas didn't maintain its lead or defensive effectiveness in the second half, having a 13-point lead at intermission played a significant part in the win. The 2016 national champions led 68-64 before scoring 10 of the next 14 points to pull away.

Keenan Evans would put up 12 of his 16 points in the second half.

The top-seeded Jayhawks secured their passage into the last eight with a very close 80-76 victory over fifth-seeded Clemson, while No. 2 seeded Blue Devils booked their Midwest Regional final place, with a workman-like 69-65 win over No. 11 seed Syracuse.

For the first time in history, Texas Tech is headed to the Elite 8.

"We know we are going to have to shoot 30 threes Sunday", Self said, "because we know whoever we play is going to play zone". But the Tigers reached the regional semifinals for the first time since 1997 even after losing Donte Grantham, perhaps their best player.

HOT SHOOTING: Loyola shot 75 percent from the field in the second half against Nevada, making 18 of 24 shots. But Shelton Mitchell and Gabe DeVoe each missed from beyond the arc.

Tyus Battle had a team-high 19 points for the Orange, but he went 1-for-2 from the line in the closing seconds before Gary Trent Jr. hit two free throws to cap the Blue Devils' scoring.

Malik Newman (17 points), Devonte' Graham (16) and Lagerald Vick (13) joined Azubuike in double figures, and each had more than a couple of key moments or plays that helped Kansas build that 20-point lead that proved insurmountable. Meanwhile, Clemson, a +180 moneyline underdog, destroyed the Auburn Tigers by 31 points.

West Virginia and Villanova battled down to the last few minutes of the game.

The Mountaineers held the Wildcats without a basket for more than three minutes while opening up a six-point lead with 11 minutes to play.

Are any top seeds at risk this evening? His presence forced Clemson to give more space to KU's shooters, who went 10 of 22 on 3s.

This game didn't require much work until the end.

West Virginia cut the lead to three before the under-eight minute timeout.

David Skara #24 of the Clemson Tigers reacts after being defeated by the Kansas Jayhawks in the 2018 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. DeVoe is the first Clemson guard with at least 30 points and nine rebounds in the same game since Will Solomon had 43 and nine vs. Virginia on January 15, 2000 ... That hasn't stopped him from trying, though.
