Virginia University Cavaliers have advance to the Elite Eight at the NCAA Tournament after a gritty 53-49 win against Oregon. Jack Salt only played for three minutes, grabbing a solitary rebound, as Virginia coach Tony Bennett stuck with his starters for most of the contest.
Salt and the Virginia team will make their first appearance in the last eight since 2016 – their seventh visit overall. Virginia will play Purdue in the NCAA South Regional final on Sunday.
Also playing on Sunday is our only Kiwi surviving at the Women’s Tournament. Cantabrian Esra McGoldrick and North Carolina State University are in the Sweet 16 where the Wolfpack take on Iowa.
