The Baylor Bears beat Villanova Sunday and will face the winner of the Oral Roberts-Arkansas game.  Baylor will be a -6 favorite versus the Razorbacks.

Adam Flagler was the surprise leading scorer, with 16 points, and Baylor (25-2), which came in as the nation’s leading 3-point shooting team at 41.5%, won despite making only 3 of 19 against Villanova’s ever-shifting 2-3, man-to-man combo on D.

Baylor, which started the season 18-0 and won its first-ever Big 12 regular-season title, is one win from the Final Four for the first time since 2012.

The Razorbacks trailed by 12 with just over 15 minutes to play and came from behind to beat Oral Roberts, who were a huge underdog. They make their first Elite 8 since 1995.
