UConn crushed Saint Mary's 70-55 to advance.

Adama Sanogo collected 24 points and eight rebounds for the Huskies.

UConn's Tristen Newton scored 13 points and Jordan Hawkins answered his second straight scoreless first half by draining four 3-pointers after intermission.

This is the first time the Huskies have advanced since their 2014 national title run.

The Razorbacks beat No.1 seed Kansas 72-71 on Saturday to advance.

Ricky Council IV and Davonte Davis combined for 46 points.

Davis had 21 second-half points and a game high 25. Council scored 21 with six rebounds and four assists.  He also made 11 of 12 free throws.

"I've been coaching a long time -- that's as great of a win as I've ever been a part of," Arkansas coach Eric Musselman said. "Again, because of the history of Kansas, because of some of the their veteran players that were part of a championship team last year. A lot of people didn't think we were going to win our first-round game."
