DON'T LOOK AWAY
News flash: people like to watch NCAA tournament games on television, especially when upstarts and big-name programs are involved.
CBS Sports and Turner Sports reported Saturday that Friday's round of 16 games on CBS and TBS — featuring 15-seed Florida Gulf Coast along with perennial heavyweights Duke, Kansas, Louisville and Michigan State — earned an 8.2 household rating and 16 share. That was up 22 percent from last year and the highest for a Friday regional semifinal since 1994.
Overall, the tournament is averaging a 6.1 household rating and a 13 share for its highest ratings since 1998.
SPORTSMANSHIP STILL LIVES

STAT OF THE DAY
Kansas' loss to Michigan on Friday night left Louisville as the last No. 1 seed in the tournament.
This is only the third time in the 29 years since the tournament expanded to 64 teams that only one No. 1 seed reached the regional finals, according to STATS. The only other times that a single No. 1 made it to the round of eight came in 2000 with eventual champion Michigan State and 2011 with Kansas — which fell to VCU to miss the Final Four.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
"I don't think we're Cinderella at all. Cinderellas usually are done by this stage. If you get to this point, you can win the whole thing. You beat a No. 1 seed and a No. 2 seed. I think Cinderella just found one glass slipper. I don't think she found four. So that's just the way it is." — Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall after Saturday's win against Ohio State.
