The second set of games provided the only late-game drama of the day session, with Utah beating UTEP 60-54. The game was tied in the last minute when Utah guard Mark Jackson knocked down an 18 footer for the game winner. Bogut finished with 24 and 11, but his occasional matador defense and poor free throw shooting kept this one interesting.
Elsewhere, Washington didn’t do much to shed its reputation as a weak one seed. The beat Montana by 11, but saw the Griz and their triangle offense shoot 49%.
Iowa scored 5 points in their first 19 possesions and lost to Cincinnati by 12.
BC had the most dominating performace of the day session, taking a 20 point halftime lead on Penn, and cruising for the win.
