NCAA Tournament Live Scores, Updates: Kentucky, Baylor, Louisville In Action On Saturday

After watching all of the upset's on Friday, Royce White and Iowa State must be feeling awfully confident heading into their matchup against overall No. 1 seed Kentucky. Having already knocked off last year's champs, UConn, the Cyclones will look to supplant Lehigh and Norfolk State as the darlings of the tournament. Good luck with that.

Also hoping to be fitted for glass high tops as the 2012 Cinderella is No. 11 Colorado, who will take on hard-to-miss No. 3 Baylor. After having their hands full with the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State, perhaps a stampede of Buffaloes will prove too much to handle.

With the last scheduled start of the third round, Louisville and New Mexico battle in Portland. Is it too early for Rick Pitino to break out the white suit? Maybe Carrie Brownstein will swing by the Rose Garden to put a bird on it.

Gordon grabs rebound off missed free throw and heaves it. Well wide.

The Get It In

Cold off the bench, Justice gets loose and is quickly fouled. There are 2.1 seconds left. One free throw should do it. Two free throws and not even Heslip could save Lobos.

1... 2.. 3... 4.. TIMEOUT

Louisville nearly gets whistled for another 5-second violation. Kuric couldn't find anyone. Lville timeout.

03/17/2012 11:54 PM EDT

New Mexico Timeout

The Lobos need another 5-second violation on L'ville, a quick steal on inbounds or a quicker foul and two misses from free throw line. Anything else?

03/17/2012 11:53 PM EDT


Gordon sinks a clutch three with only a few seconds left! It's a three-point game.

Time Running Out

SIva nails free throws. 59-53 with less than 15 seconds..

03/17/2012 11:52 PM EDT


Ball is bouncing all over the floor on Lobos' next possession.. Lville can't grab it either.. finally Siva scoops and is fouled.

03/17/2012 11:51 PM EDT

Siva pounding

He drives and Dieng trails and he sends it over.. SLAM!

03/17/2012 11:50 PM EDT

In His Hands

After a missed dunk by Walker and a missed tip by Hardeman, Gordon swoops in and deftly pushes the ball up and in. What a play. It's 55-53 and Siva brings it up under a minute.

Louisville comes out of timeout looking to score and not waste time. Smith attacks and draws foul. He sinks two.
