Live39 updates

  • Snap judgment: Purdue is going to pile up points and fouls on Utah State. Whether the Aggies can keep it close is going to depend on how the Boilermakers defend ball screens at the other end.

    Utah State coach Danny Sprinkle is determined to pull Zach Edey away from the basket with pick-and-pops or force him to defend in space against smaller quicker guards. If Purdue successfully counters that, it wins easily. If not, the Boilermakers could face game pressure down the stretch.

  • The Aggies came to play today. They’re matching Purdue blow for blow as the first half hits the midway point

  • Purdue and Utah State is underway on the men’s side. The Boilermakers came into the game 11.5-point favorites.

  • A slick play at the end of the half by K-State’s Serena Sundell. She threw the ball off a Colorado defender’s back and got off a layup as time expired.

  • Final: South Carolina 88, North Carolina 41

    The Gamecocks were not messing around in this one. MiLaysia Fulwiley continues his impressive run with 20 points and 9 rebounds.

  • Casual 4-point play for K-State

  • Much like the Colorado men, the women’s team is also trying to pull an upset.

    Kansas State has the upper hand for now

  • Huge win for Duke to advance to the Sweet 16. Ohio State’s offense didn’t show up and just barely kept its streak of games with a 3-pointer alive with their first and only make in the final 12 seconds. It’s now at 362 games.

    There was only one upset in the first round. But already within one game of the second round, a No. 2 seed is heading home. Though there still isn’t enough parity through the full 68-team field for big-time upsets in the first round, this is what we’ve been talking about when we say the middle of the pack is all strong.

  • Final: Marquette 81, Colorado 77

    Tyler Kolek is the hero for Marquette with 21 points, 11 assists, 5 rebounds and some clutch play down the stretch to lift the Golden Eagles past the Buffs and into the Sweet 16. A healthy Kolek makes this Marquette team dangerous in the tourney.

  • Final: Duke 75, Ohio State 63

    We have our first big upset of the women’s tournament as the Blue Devils pull off the second-round stunner and punch the first ticket to the Sweet 16. Reigan Richardson was the difference, finishing with 28 points and 7 rebounds.

  • The Colorado-Marquette game is going to come down to free throws.

  • Tyler Kolek has 19 points, 11 assists and 5 rebounds.

  • We are locked at 74 with three minutes left.

  • The Blue Devils are up late thanks mostly to Reigan Richardson, who has 25 points.

  • MiLaysia Fulwiley has 11 points and 5 rebounds and the Gamecocks are rolling.

  • Every time Colorado ties it up, Marquette goes on another run. The Golden Eagles scored five straight points after this shot.

  • This could be huge down the stretch.

  • Ohio State’s struggles from 3 could mean an early exit here. The Buckeyes are 0-8 from the perimeter after shooting 35.6% from there this season. They haven’t made fewer than four in a game this year.

    Going 16-of-23 from the free throw line could also prove detrimental with it a one-possession game.
