Just like the Princeton game, Brandon Knight played the hero once again. After Jon Diebler nailed a three to tie the game with 21 seconds left, Knight took control. Though he missed seven of his first nine shots, Knight had the confidence to bury the tenth, which he did with five seconds left. William Buford's desparation three attempt clanged off the rim and the Wildcats advanced to the Elite Eight. Jared Sullinger - who announced he will be returning next year - led the Buckeyes with 21 points and 16 rebounds while Kentucky counterpart Josh Harrellson notched 17 points and 10 boards of his own.
