It's Flyers, Badgers and Cats

Dayton and Wisconsin easily advanced to the Elite Eight on Thursday, and No. 1 seed Arizona needed a second-half comeback. Dayton, No. 11 in the South Region, beat No. 10 Stanford 82-72. Wisconsin, No. 2 in the West, routed No. 6 Baylor 69-52. In the West's late game, Arizona held off No. 4 San Diego State 70-64. Jordan Sibert scored 18 as Dayton led almost the entire game, using its depth to wear down Stanford and reach its first Elite Eight since 1984. The Flyers face No. 1 Florida at 6:09 Saturday in the South final. "It's nice that on the biggest stage, we acted like ourselves," coach Archie Miller said. Frank Kaminsky had 19 points and six blocks for Wisconsin, which faces the Wildcats in the West final about 8:40 Saturday. The Badgers shredded Baylor's vaunted zone, stifled the Bears' 3-point shooting and neared their first Final Four since 2000. Stories, 6C
