Nova Stuns Pitt, UConn Marches On

In the final minute of Villanova vs. Pitt, it appeared the game would be going to overtime after a poor pass gave Pitt the chance to tie the game at 76-76. But with only five seconds remaining in regulation, Nova guard Scottie Reynolds sprinted down court after catching a quick touch pass, juking four of Pitt's players and making a layup with only a half-second left on the clock. Pittsburgh's point guard collapsed to the floor in heartbreak, and the first No. 1 seed of the tourney had been eliminated. In yesterday's other game, UConn defeated Missouri through a solid team effort, especially at the free throw line. Today's matchups include one of the most hotly anticipated games thus far, as UNC senior Tyler Hansbrough goes up against the freshman phenom Blake Griffin of Oklahoma.
