2022 March Madness results: Arizona survives surprise TCU bid to crown thrilling NCAA Opening Weekend

Survive and progress. That’s what top-seeded Arizona did Sunday night in San Diego, beating the TCU team in overtime 85-80 to avoid a second-round turmoil and advance to the Sweet 16.

In what could have been the second biggest upset of this year’s NCAA tournament, Arizona State avoided an early exit after nearly collapsing in the second half. Turning nine with less than eight minutes of play in the second half, he allowed the No. 9-seeded Horned Frogs to make a furious comeback along the length of the court to force an extra period. Arizona almost pulled a dunk in the regulation horn but didn’t get off on time.

In overtime, the field’s best player rose to the biggest occasion as Arizona star Benedict Mathurin, a potential NBA lottery pick, scored six points from Arizona in the overtime to finish the game with 30 points. Big man Christian Colocco, who finished with 28 points, was the only other player from Arizona to score in overtime. Koloko, in a fun twist of sarcasm after he delayed teammate Dalen Terry’s late knockout win, handed over the dagger with a rebound dipping.

The last day of the first weekend saw drama elsewhere that ended differently for a pair of underdogs.

Villanova will get the 11th seeded Michigan in the next round.
