News and Notes

On Sunday, Fran Fraschilla announced his resignation as head coach at New Mexico. At the news conference in Albuquerque, N.M., Fraschilla said that he feels that he “let down” New Mexico A.D. Rudy Davalos. The Lobos finished the season 16-14 after losing to Minnesota in the 1st round of the NIT.

The six major conferences (ACC, SEC, Big 10, Big 12, Big East, Pac 10) placed 14 teams into the Sweet 16. The only teams not from those conferences to advance to the 3rd round were Kent State and Southern Illinois.

The Big 12 sent 4 teams to the Sweet 16 for the first time ever. In the previous four NCAA Tournaments, the conference sent a total of four teams to the 3rd round.

For the first time since 1986, there have been two 2 OT games in the same tournament. #8 UCLA beat #1 Cincinnati in 2 OT in the second round and #12 Creighton defeated #5 Florida in 2 OT in the first round.

The 105-101 2 OT #8 UCLA win vs. #1 Cincinnati marked the first time that both teams scored more than 100 points in the same game since 1994, when UCLA lost to Tulsa 112-102. The 206 total points scored in the UCLA-Cincinnati 2nd round game was the most scored since that 1994 1st round game (214 points).

In the 3rd round, UCLA and Missouri will play for the first time since the classic game in the 1995 NCAA Tournament. In that 2nd round game, the Bruins defeated the Tigers 75-74 en route to winning the title. The game featured a memorable coast-to-coast drive by UCLA guard Tyus Edney to win it in the final seconds. Also, Missouri forward Kareem Rush’s brother, JaRon, played at UCLA in 1999 and 2000.

UCLA senior Rico Hines strained his left knee in the first half of the Bruins’ 2 OT win vs. Cincinnati. He didn’t play after halftime and his status is questionable for next Friday’s 3rd round game vs. Missouri.

In the Maryland-Wisconsin 2nd round game, Terrapins guard Juan Dixon became the all-time leading scorer in Maryland history. The senior passed Len Bias with a 3-pointer in the 1st half of the contest.
