NCAA March Madness - Day 3 Live Blog: Scores, Highlights, Stats & More from Chat Sports

The second round of the NCAA Tournament is here with eight games on this Saturday, with winners earning berths to next weekend's Sweet 16. We're going to keep you up to date on all the latest upsets and happenings from all over the bracket on Chat Sports. Here are all of the final scores, highlight plays and game summaries that will be updated throughout the day!

(4) Florida leads (5) Virginia, 65-36 - 2:54 remaining in 2nd half
(4) Purdue leads (5) Iowa State, 44-31 - Halftime

(8) Wisconsin shocks (1) Villanova with 65-62 upset win

There will not be a repeat champion! Wisconsin led for the first 25 minutes of the game, but foul trouble to point guard Bronson Koenig and center Ethan Happ killed their momentum. Villanova used that to their advantage, going on a spirited run that gave them a 57-50 lead with just over five minutes to play.

Of course, Wisconsin wasn't done. They closed the game on a 15-5 run of their own as Bronson Koenig (17 points) hit a pair of huge three-pointers down the stretch and Nigel Hayes (19 points) added a late layup that iced the game.

With the win, Wisconsin advances to the Sweet 16 for the fourth straight season. It is also the third time in four years that Villanova has lost in the Round of 32.

11) Xavier Musketeers advances to Sweet 16 with 91-66 win over (3) Florida State
Led by Trevon Bluiett's 29 points, Xavier shot an impressive 56.6 percent from the field as five different players scored in double figures. Their zone also kept Florida State from establishing any offensive flow, limiting the Seminoles to just 4/21 shooting (19 percent) from three-point range.

The Musketeers trailed for just over a minute early in the first half, then broke the game open with a 12-0 run that gave them a double-digit lead they would never give back. FSU managed to stay within roughly a 10 point deficit for a while, but Xavier exploded with another big run - this one 20-8 - to push the lead to 21. The rest of the game was simply a formality after that.

(2) Arizona pulls away for 69-60 win over (7) Saint Mary's
This game put a lot of fear into Wildcats fans. Saint Mary's opened the game on a 22-12 run as Arizona's offense struggled, but their defense allowed them to get back into this game and ultimately get the win. Arizona limited the Gaels to just 23.8 percent shooting from three-point range and forced 13 turnovers while stars Lauri Markkanen and Allonzo Trier combined for 30 points.


(4) Butler holds on for 74-65 win over (12) Middle Tennessee
The lowest-seeded team to advance to the second round, Middle Tennessee didn't provide Butler with much of a fight. The Bulldogs led wire-to-wire, and even though Middle Tennessee cut the lead to five with roughly a minute to play, Tyler Lewis his several clutch free throws to ice the victory for Butler.

(1) Gonzaga holds off (8) Northwestern for 79-73 win
After a slow start in their first round matchup, Gonzaga came out of the gates red hot against Northwestern, building a 34-12 advantage in the first 18 minutes of the game. However, the Wildcats were able to gradually claw their way back into the game, cutting the deficit to six points in the final three minutes, but a missed goaltending call - and subsequent technical foul from Northwestern head coach Chris Collins - ended that run as the Zags held on for the win.

(4) West Virginia's press leads them to 83-71 win over (5) Notre Dame
The Mountaineers jumped out to a 10-0 lead over the Irish and never really looked back. They had the lead for the entire game, forcing Notre Dame - the team who averages the fewest turnovers in the country - into 14 turnovers.
