Sixth seed Tennessee upset No. 2 Ohio State tonight, winning 76-73 to secure a place in the final eight of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. The Volunteers (28-8) will face Michigan State in Sunday’s Midwest Regional final, with a trip to the Final Four on the line.

In tonight’s other early game, third-seeded Baylor had a much, much easier time advancing to the South final, running out to a huge lead over 10th seed St. Mary’s and cruising to a 72-49 victory. The Bears (29-7) get top seed Duke on Sunday for the chance to book their trip to Indianapolis.
