CBK 99 43 NCAA tournament Sweet 16 studs and duds 29631236 Dud: Nolan Smith, Duke Dud%3A+Nolan+Smith%2C+Duke CBK

While freshman Kyrie Irving broke out with 28 points in his third game back from injury, Smith, the ACC player of the year, seemed out of sorts in a secondary role. After doing everything well all season, the senior guard couldn't do anything right against Arizona, missing 11 of 14 shots (including all three 3-point tries) and finishing with eight points, five rebounds, two assists and six turnovers in 34 minutes.

Already a certain lottery pick should he decide to go pro, Williams may have helped his draft stock even more with an extraordinary performance against Duke. The 6-foot-8 sophomore scored 32 points, made five 3-pointers, pulled down 13 rebounds and added two assists and two steals as the Wildcats routed the defending champs, 93-77.

The 6-foot-10 senior had an awful end to a superb collegiate career, missing 11 of 12 shots and fouling out in the loss to Butler. Averaging a team-high 18.7 points, he finished with three as the Badgers shot 30.4 percent.

CBK 99 43 NCAA tournament Sweet 16 studs and duds 29631233 Stud: Matt Howard, Butler Stud%3A+Matt+Howard%2C+Butler CBK

Butler's senior leader seems intent on prolonging his college career and getting back to the Final Four. He scored 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in a 61-54 win over Wisconsin, knocking down three 3-pointers against one of the nation's stingiest defenses.

CBK 99 43 NCAA tournament Sweet 16 studs and duds 29634090 Dud: Jimmer Fredette, BYU Dud%3A+Jimmer+Fredette%2C+BYU CBK

His 32 points and five assists were typical Jimmer numbers, but it wasn't really a typical Jimmer night. He missed 18 of 29 shots, including 12 of his 15 three-point attempts, and committed six turnovers. His weak defense and poor shot selection also cost the Cougars late in regulation and overtime.

CBK 99 43 NCAA tournament Sweet 16 studs and duds 29634088 Stud: Alex Tyus, Florida Stud%3A+Alex+Tyus%2C+Florida CBK

BYU couldn't contend with the length and athleticism of Tyus, a 6-foot-8, 220-pound senior who simply outleaped and outhustled the Cougars all night. He finished with 19 points and 17 rebounds in the 83-74 victory, missing only one shot along the way.

The question mark for San Diego State was its backcourt and the answer wasn't good against UConn. D.J. Gay, Chase Tapley and James Rahon combined to shoot 8 for 29 and Gay (pictured), the starting point guard, had no assists in 35 minutes. They also gave up 60 points to the Huskies' starting backcourt of Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb.

Kemba Walker's superb performance was expected, but it was Lamb who shocked San Diego State with his 24-point effort. The freshman missed only two shots all night and drained all three of his 3-pointers to provide more than enough offensive support for the team's superstar.

CBK 99 43 NCAA tournament Sweet 16 studs and duds 29641379 Dud: FSU offense Dud%3A++FSU+offense+ CBK

The Seminoles did most of what they needed to do to advance to the Elite Eight. They outrebounded VCU by 15, forced 17 turnovers and kept charging back after falling behind. Ultimately, their 36.6-percent shooting let them down in a game decided by a single point, no surprise for a team with a superb defense but suspect offense all season.

While the rest of his teammates had trouble against Florida State's stingy defense, Burgess lit up the Seminoles for 26 points in a wild 72-71 overtime win. He made six of seven 3-pointers and then hit the game-winning layup off an inbounds pass with 7.1 seconds left in OT as the 12th-seeded Rams continued their remarkable tourney run.

The little guard had a tremendous career for the Spiders, finishing second on the school scoring list, but his final game was forgettable. Anderson (right, sitting next to Justin Harper) missed 12 of 17 shots, including all six of his 3-pointers, giving Richmond no chance to pull the upset.

The Jayhawks made it look easy against 12th-seeded Richmond, surging to an early 22-point lead before cruising to a 77-57 victory. Morningstar, a sweet-shooting senior guard, led the charge with four 3-pointers and 18 points.

The Golden Eagles got nice production from their bench, which outscored its UNC counterparts, 42-5. But that didn't matter because the starters were missing in action. Three of them failed to score at all and Darius Johnson-Odom (pictured), the team's top gun, finished with seven points on 2-of-9 shooting.

CBK 99 43 NCAA tournament Sweet 16 studs and duds 29642353 Stud: Tyler Zeller, UNC Stud%3A+Tyler+Zeller%2C+UNC CBK

The 7-foot junior has had an injury-plagued career with the Tar Heels, but he's towered over the competition in the NCAA tournament. Zeller had 27 points and 12 rebounds in an 81-63 win over Marquette, giving him 82 points in three tourney games.

The do-it-all junior guard couldn't do anything right Friday night. He missed 14 of 16 shots and finished with just nine points, two rebounds and one assist.

CBK 99 43 NCAA tournament Sweet 16 studs and duds 29641380 Stud: Josh Harrellson, Kentucky Stud%3A+Josh+Harrellson%2C+Kentucky+ CBK

The bulky senior held his own against Ohio State star freshman Jared Sullinger, finishing with a team-high 17 points and 10 rebounds. He kept the Wildcats in the game and set the stage for freshman guard Brandon Knight's game-winning jumper as Kentucky shocked the top-seeded Buckeyes, 62-60.

The first weekend was great for Cinderellas. The Sweet 16 was not. The glass slipper did not fit Richmond and Marquette, who were blown out in their respective regional semifinals Friday. But the high seeds had plenty of studs Thursday and Friday as the cream of college basketball rose to the top.
