Kansas 77, Richmond 57

North Carolina 81, Marquette 63
More domination.

Kentucky 62, Ohio State 60
This game was nip-and-tuck the whole way, but the Buckeyes found themselves down three with under 30 seconds to play. Jon Diebler hit a long three to tie the game, but Brandon Knight responded with an 18-foot jumper to give Kentucky a two-point lead. William Buford got a decent look at the buzzer, but it fell short. Kentucky’s defense was the difference in the game — Ohio State shot just 33% from the field, mainly thanks to Buford’s nightmarish 2-for-16 outing. Bracket busted.

VCU 72, Florida State 71 (OT)
Good for the Rams — they made the Elite 8. Now they get to play Kansas.
