Sunday's top performances

A D slayed a G, Western Kentucky danced on and two powers confirmed what many believe about them. Here are my top five performances from today.

Sunday's top performances

A D slayed a G, Western Kentucky danced on and two powers confirmed what many believe about them. Here are my top five performances from today.

5. Joey Dorsey, Memphis. The Tigers shot only 47 percent from the line in a 77-74 win over Mississippi State, but Dorsey's defense was outstanding:

3. A.J. Abrams, Texas. Miami made it close at the end, but for much of this game the Longhorns looked very much like the darkhorse Final Four pick that some have been touting.
