In tonight's NCAA men's basketball action...

Kansas used an early 21-2 run to expand its lead over Richmond from 10-7 to 31-9 (play-by-play sheet). The Jayhawks were never challenged thereafter, winning 77-57.

Last night...

Trailing 53-47 to Duke with 16:35 remaining in the game, Arizona went on a 19-2 run to go ahead 66-55 (play-by-play sheet). The Wildcats, who shot 9-of-15 (.600) from three-point land, pulled away to win, 93-77. Big forward Derrick Williams excelled inside (13 rebounds) and outside (5-of-6 on three-pointers) for U of A, netting 32 points in all.

Butler used a 13-0 spurt to expand a 29-24 lead over Wisconsin to 42-24 (play-by-play). However, once the Bulldogs got their lead to 20 (47-27) at the 11:34 mark, the Badgers burrowed back with a 22-6 run to cut the deficit to 53-49 with 1:40 remaining. Wisconsin got no closer, however, with Butler prevailing 61-54. As this game article noted: "Jon Leuer, normally one of the Badgers' top offensive forces with 18.7 points per game coming in, was 1-of-12 shooting and finished with three points."

Talking about cold shooting, BYU star Jimmer Fredette had a rough night (3-of-15) from behind the three-point arc, although he scored 32 points in all, as the Cougars dropped an 83-74 overtime decision to Florida.
