NCAA Tournament Scores, LIVE UPDATES: Kansas, Michigan State, Notre Dame Play On Friday Night

03/16/2012 09:22 pm ET

With No. 15 Norfolk State knocking off No. 2 Missouri on Friday afternoon, all the favored teams on the NCAA Tournament schedule for Friday night are on upset alert.

Can Detroit shock Kansas? Can LIU-Brooklyn upend Michigan State? Will South Florida keeps its run -- one that began in the "First Four" -- going with its ferocious defense?

While the Notre Dame-Xavier game does not feature much upset potential with its 7/10 split, it could also be the most entertaining and competitive of the bunch. At least, that's how it looks on paper. But we all know the games aren't played on paper, especially the paper your busted bracket is printed on.

@ RTCSouthRegion :

And now the same official calls a flagrant foul against Notre Dame for fouling before the ball is inbounded. #NCAAGreensboro

@ RTCSouthRegion :

Obviously, officials got a memo from the NCAA last week that said "call more lane violations, you guys." #NCAAGreensboro

XAVIER WINS 67-63. THAT'S THE MUSKETEERS SIXTH DOUBLE-DIGIT COMEBACK WIN OF THE YEAR

LANE VIOLATION

Atkins makes the first one but the ref calls a LANE VIOLATION on Notre Dame's Jerian Grant. Unbelievable call. Same call as the Syracuse game. Way too many lane violations in the tournament so far.

03/17/2012 12:19 AM EDT

Wells misses the second and Atkins gets the ball, drives the length of the court and draws a blocking foul. He's going to the line for one-and-one, down by two with 2.8 seconds left.

03/17/2012 12:18 AM EDT

Wells makes the first one. 65-63 Xavier.

03/17/2012 12:17 AM EDT

Grant takes a long 3-pointer for ND but misses off the rim and Wells gets the rebound. He gets fouled with eight seconds left in the game.

HALLOWAY DRIVES RIGHT AND MAKES A RUNNING FLOATER OFF THE GLASS. XAVIER HAS THE 64-64-63 LEAD WITH 12 SECONDS LEFT.
