No. 5 Arizona over No. 12 Memphis
No. 13 Oakland over No. 4 Texas

No. 6 Cincinnati over No. 11 Missouri
No. 3 UConn over No. 13 Bucknell

No. 10 Penn State over No. 7 Temple
No. 2 San Diego State over No. 15 Northern Colorado

Third Round

No. 1 Duke over No. 8 Michigan
No. 5 Arizona over No. 13 Oakland

No. 3 UConn over No. 6 Cincinnati
No. 2 San Diego State over No. 10 Penn State
