The Midwest looks like the bracket of death with No. 1 seed Kansas opening up in Wichita. The Tar Heels snapped a six-game losing streak in the ACC tournament to their Tobacco Road rivals. "Thankful to be the one seed". The top-seeded Jayhawks (26-7) will play No. 18 West Virginia for the title. With one stunning rally on its resume, Providence almost made it two.

Justin Johnson led WKU with 21 points and 12 rebounds, while Josh Anderson and Lamonte Bearden both had 13 points.

Jevon Carter added 17 points and Sagaba Konate had 11 for the third-seeded Mountaineers (24-9), who advance to their third straight title game.

The Crimson Tide trailed 41-31 at halftime but started the second half on a 28-3 run.

Lipscomb finished two games behind Florida Gulf Coast in the Atlantic Sun Conference, but knocked off the Eagles 108-96 in the tournament to earn a bid. That could be a risky formula in a one-and-done tournament setting.

Ayton put on a show along The Strip, bouncing back from a nervous Pac-12 opener with two dominating games.

How they falter: North Carolina is highly susceptible to being beaten from outside and their opponent gets hot from beyond the arc, putting the Tar Heels in upset territory.

Both the winning team of Virginia Tech (10:57.60) and runner-up Clemson (10:58.83) eclipsed the fastest time in the country to set the new marks on the season. USC was named in the probe as well, leading to sophomore De'Anthony Melton to be ruled ineligible this season.
