Brandon Clarke's 36 points and 5 blocks, which led Gonzaga to the Sweet 16 for the fifth consecutive year and set up a rematch with Florida State, came on 15 of 18 shooting. Clarke joined Shaquille O'Neal as the only players to score that many points and block that many shots in the NCAA Tournament. "It's actually a pretty crazy stat; I don't think I even knew that," Clarke said in an interview with ESPN. "Shaq is obviously an all-time great. To even have my name up there by his is something that's really cool."

Two things Auburn did well all year, and that they thought they could do against Kansas: Shoot 3s, force turnovers. Auburn hit 8 of 14 3s and forced 6 turnovers through the first 16 minutes. They held a 26-1 edge in transition points and a 44-23 lead at the 3:58 mark.

Gonzaga wins, 83-71. Baylor hung around, but Brandon Clarke (36 points, 8 rebounds, 5 blocks) was too much, and the Zags were able to hold the Bears to just 4 3-pointers — a quarter of what they hit in the Round of 64.

Brandon Clarke: 35 points, 5 blocks. The only other players to put up those numbers in the Tournament: Shaquille O'Neal and David Robinson.

Rui Hachimura, quiet all night, goes baseline for a dunk, then later gets a lob, putting Gonzaga up 12 with 5:38 left. Baylor keeps fighting — as it has all season.

Brandon Clarke, with more than 13 minutes remaining: 26 points, 2 missed shots, 5 blocks. He has seemed to answer basically every time Baylor needs a stop.

Not good. Mark Vital, one of Baylor's best defenders, got called for back-to-back fouls, giving him 4 and forcing him to sit.

Baylor had some of Michael's Secret Stuff at halftime. They began on a 10-run, cutting their deficit to 6.

Gonzaga leads Baylor 39-23 at halftime, and they are playing beautiful basketball. 56 percent from the field, 9 assists to 5 turnovers, and they have held Makai Mason and King McClure, Baylor's two key guards, to 1 of 9 shooting.

The Zags are flat-out dominating. They're on an 11-3 run over the last three minutes and lead by 17 points with 4:12 left in the first half. Brandon Clarke, expected to be a problem against a small lineup, already has 14 points and has missed only two shots.
