Arizona ends Harvard's Cinderella run in NCAA tournament

NCAA tournament — West and Midwest Region roundups

(Continued)

MIDWEST REGIONAL



LOUISVILLE 82, COLORADO ST. 56


LEXINGTON, Ky. — Russ Smith had another big night, leading four players in double figures with 27 points, and top-seeded Louisville advanced to the regional semifinals.

The Cardinals put on a defensive clinic as they dismantled Colorado State. Louisville forced the eighth-seeded Rams into a season-high 20 turnovers, made Colton Iverson look as invisible as a 6-foot-10 guy can be and limited one of the nation's best rebounding teams to 24 boards, more than a dozen below their average.

It was the 12th straight win for Louisville (31-5), which will play Oregon on Friday in Indianapolis.

OREGON 74, SAINT LOUIS 57

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Damyean Dotson scored 23 points, Carlos Emory added 14 and hot-shooting Oregon sprinted past fourth-seeded Saint Louis.

Dotson made his first five 3-point attempts to carry the 12th-seeded Ducks (28-8) into the second weekend for the first time since 2007, when they lost to eventual repeat champion Florida in the regional final. Oregon made 8 of 11 shots from beyond the arc, while the Billikens finished 3 for 21 from long range.

Kwamain Mitchell scored 18 points and Dwayne Evans had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Billikens (28-7), who set a school record for wins this season following the death of coach Rick Majerus in December.

MICHIGAN ST. 70, MEMPHIS 48

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Gary Harris scored 16 of his career-high 23 points in the first half to help third-seeded Michigan State reach the round of 16 for the fifth time in six years.

Michigan State (27-8) will play Duke or Creighton on Friday in the regional semifinals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

The Tigers (31-5) advanced in the NCAA tournament for the first time in Josh Pastner's four seasons. The Conference USA champions were eliminated in the third round because they struggled to stop Harris on the outside or his teammates inside all afternoon.

The Spartans' top post players — Adreian Payne and Derrick Nix — combined for 27 points and 18 rebounds.
