North Carolina routed Marquette on Thursday 95-63.

Brady Manek scored 28 points and Love needed just 19 minutes to tie Carolina’s single-game tournament record of six 3-pointers in a 95-63 rout of Marquette on Thursday, the biggest blowout in a matchup of 8-9 seeds in tournament history.

Caleb Love scored 21 of his 23 points before halftime as the eighth-seeded Tar Heels (25-9) built a 28-point lead. They were playing defending national champion Baylor on Saturday.

As an underdog, UNC is 11-28 (28.2%) Straight Up dating back to the 2016 season.

The 13th-seeded Zips led most of the way in a bitter battle with fourth-seeded UCLA in an East Regional game at the Moda Center on Thursday night before losing to UCLA 57-53.

Johnny Juzang knocked down a pair of free throws, and the Bruins moved on to face No. 5 seed Saint Mary’s on Saturday.

“This reminds me of my Big East days. You’re going to win a rock fight, you’ve got to put your hardhat on and you’ve got to take care of the ball, get some extra possessions,” UCLA coach Mick Cronin said. “And the offensive rebounding was huge, and we didn’t turn it over. We were able to finally get some — hang in there and get some stops and get a few shots to go down.”

Tyger Campbell finished with 16 points and Jamie Jaquez added 15. Jules Bernard, who hit a 3 to start UCLA’s run when it trailed 47-39, added 10 points.

The Gaels routed Indiana in the first round of this year's tournament.

Logan Johnson scored 20 points and fifth-seeded Saint Mary's took advantage of No. 12 seed Indiana's grueling recent schedule, rolling to an 82-53 victory in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday.

Tommy Kuhse added 19 points and six assists for the Gaels (26-7), the only team to beat top overall seed Gonzaga in the West Coast Conference this season. Saint Mary’s faced UCLA on Saturday.

As an away underdog since 2016, the Gaels are 4-11 (26.7%) Straight Up.
