SWEET AND WILD Arizona's Solomon Hill (in air) and Derrick Williams (23) celebrated a 70--69 victory over Texas on Sunday in Tulsa, which earned the fifth-seeded Wildcats a berth in the NCAA tournament's round of 16 (page 38). Williams's three-point play with 9.6 seconds left put Arizona up by one, and the Wildcats snuffed out the fourth-seeded Longhorns' last-gasp attempt.

FALLING FORWARD Marquette's Jae Crowder (32) hit the floor against Xavier during the 11th-seeded Golden Eagles' 66--55 win over the sixth-seeded Musketeers in Cleveland last Friday. Crowder had 10 points in the victory, and two days later he scored 16 off the bench as Marquette beat Syracuse, a third seed, to advance to the Sweet 16.

DOWNWARD DOGS Washington's (from left) Darnell Gant, Aziz N'Diaye and Justin Holiday could only sit in dismay as their tournament came to an end on Sunday in Charlotte. The seventh-seeded Huskies led North Carolina for much of the game, but the No. 2 seed pulled ahead late and won 86--83 to advance to the regional semis against Marquette.
