NCAA Tournament Scores, LIVE UPDATES: Marquette, Wisconsin, VCU In Action On Saturday

03/17/2012 04:58 pm ET | Updated Mar 17, 2012

While Friday was highlighted by unheralded squads from Lehigh and Norfolk State upsetting powerhouse teams from Duke and Missouri, the bulk of the games scheduled for Saturday afternoon and evening feature teams that are supposedly evenly matched.

Although there may be less potential for any of these games to absolutely overwhelm your Twitter timeline like those aforementioned upsets, we should be treated to some hard fought hoops battles.

Leading off in this space is No. 3 Marquette vs. No. 6 Murray State. Can Isaiah Canaan lead the Racers in to the Sweet 16 or will the Marquette join Big East rival Syracuse, who clinched a Sweet 16 spot earlier in the day?

Up next is a 4/5 tilt between Vanderbilt and Wisconsin. The defensively-oriented Badgers opened up eyes with an offensive explosion on Thursday. Of course, Vandy knocked off Kentucky not too long ago..

Rounding out this trio of games will be the Indiana Hoosiers and the team hoping to be this year's VCU. And that team? It's actually this year's VCU.
