Wisconsin survived a stern challenge from #15 Texas A&M--CC. The Badgers were probably the beneficiaries of the "pod" system, as it sounded as though they had extensive support in Chicago (a Big Ten city).
Nevada survived an overtime game with Creighton despite losing Nick Fazekas to fouls with 3 minutes left in the extra period. For a second there, it looked like we were going to see an Adam Morrison moment, but Fazekas, and the Wolf Pack, regained their composure.
