Capsules for Thursday's NCAA games

  • Updated: March 23, 2011 - 11:33 PM


(3) Connecticut vs. (2) San Diego State, 6:15 p.m.

This comes down to whether the Aztecs can slow down G Kemba Walker, above, (25.8 ppg, 6.6 apg, 5.3 rpg in the Huskies' seven-game winning streak), arguably the best player left in the tournament.

(5) Arizona vs. (1) Duke, 8:45 p.m.

The Blue Devils barely survived Michigan, nearly blowing 12-point lead. But the return of Kyrie Irving, above, after missing most of the season with a toe injury, helps the high-paced attack. F Derrick Williams will be a load inside for the Devils.


(3) Brigham Young vs. (2) Florida, 6:27 p.m.

G Jimmer Fredette rung up 37 on the Gators in last year's NCAA win. If he does that again, the Cougars likely advance. Gators must also hope G Kenny Boynton can play despite sore ankle.

(8) Butler vs. (4) Wisconsin, 8:57 p.m.

With neither team having cracked 80 points since early February, this one doesn't figure to be pretty. Somehow, Matt Howard, above, and his Bulldogs teammates have made all the plays in final seconds, so a close game figures to favor Butler.
