Wildcats win in upset

Arizona's Derrick Williams, left, is fouled by Duke's Miles Plumlee on a dunk try.

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Derrick Williams carried Arizona in the first half, keeping the Wildcats in the game against Duke. His teammates returned the favor in the final 20 minutes with an offensive barrage that stunned the defending national champions.

Williams scored 25 of his career-high 32 points in the first half of Arizona’s 93-77 victory Thursday night, helping the Wildcats reach the final eight for the first time since 2005.

“As a team, we came together and willed ourselves to win,” said Lamont Jones, who added 16 points. “Derrick is a great player, but we all contribute.” Beth Harris, AP

I'm thinking this game probably messed up a few brackets. How are yours?
