England, which tops World Cup qualifying Group F, hosts Lithuania at Wembley on Sunday while Germany, five points clear at the top of Group C, travels to Azerbaijan.

When Xavier (24-13) meets Gonzaga (35-1) in the West final, the victor will earn its first trip to the Final Four.

Blueitt made 9 of 17 shots and Bernard 5 of 6. "It wasn't the total points". With Florida State, Maryland, and West Virginia all out of the mix in the West it seemed like a golden road to the Final Four for Arizona.

Thornwell, a SC native and 6-foot-5 senior guard, is averaging almost 26 points per game through four tournament games.

The Raiders' Vegas move received almost unanimous approval from the NFL. Only one owner did not. You were not even in the same row of the same section of the same stadium.
