In today's men's and women's March Madness...

The University of Washington men had an early 12-0 run against North Carolina, but the Tar Heels rallied and ultimately won the game, 86-83.

Duke's Nolan Smith scored 10 straight points as the Blue Devils expanded a 39-37 edge over Michigan to 49-37 (play-by-play sheet). After Duke upped its lead to 15 points (58-43), the Wolverines roared back with nine straight points. When Duke later held a 68-56 advantage with 6:25 left in the game, Michigan unleashed a 13-2 spurt to close within 70-69 with 1:30 remaining. Michigan had the ball in the closing seconds trailing Duke 73-71 and went for a two-point shot to tie -- and missed.

Trailing 24-23 to Purdue, the Virginia Commonwealth men reeled off 13 straight points to go up 36-24 (play-by-play sheet). Purdue rarely even got within single digits the rest of the way, as VCU captured a 94-76 upset.
Normally, it's Jon Diebler who leads Ohio State's three-point shooting brigade, but today it was David Lighty, who went 7-of-7 from behind the arc, as the Buckeyes routed George Mason, 98-66. At one point, OSU went on a huge run, outscoring GMU 50-15.
