Memphis 81, Cal State Northridge 70
NO. 2 MEMPHIS 81, NO 15 CAL-NORTHBRIDGE 70

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (AP) -- Roburt Sallie had the game of his
life with 35 points, and second-seeded Memphis beat Cal
State-Northridge 81-70 on Thursday to avoid what would have been
one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history.

Sallie, who was averaging barely four points for the Tigers
(32-3), sank 10-of-15 3-pointers, a first-round tournament
record.

The Matadors (17-14), 19-point underdogs who overcame a sequence
of tragedy and off-the-court problems just to reach the tourney,
took advantage of miserable shooting by most of the other Tigers
and led by six points with 10:08 to play.

But a few minutes later, Antonio Anderson led the Tigers on a
9-0 run and last year's NCAA national runners-up finally took
control.

Since the NCAA went to a 64-team format in 1985, only four No. 2
seeds have lost to a No. 15 in the first round.
