If I read the bracket right, if Kansas prevails over Virgina Commonwealth, it will be Butler they face.
The second game put rebuilding basketball powers UConn and Arizona against one another. This was a game of surges but UConn always seemed to have the last word. Arizona had several solid chances to win or tie the game but just could not get the ball to fall.
Connecticut now awaits the winner of Kentucky and North Carolina.
Not to look too far ahead, but KU would end up playing one of these classic programs from the southeast should they get by the streaking VCU Rams and the tough Butler Bulldogs.
