NCAA Tournament Results: Florida, Butler, Arizona Advance

In addition to UConn's win over San Diego State, here are your March Madness results for Thursday, along with a quick look at the updated NCAA tournament bracket.

No. 2 Florida did end up beating No. 3 BYU in overtime, 83-74, despite 32 points from Jimmer Fredette. The Gators will advance to face No. 8 Butler in the Elite Eight round, as Butler continued a second consecutive improbable deep March Madness run by beating No. 4 Wisconsin, 61-54. Matt Howard had 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Bulldogs. Jordan Taylor put up 22 points for the Badgers, who cut a 20-point lead down to just a couple of baskets before eventually coming up short.

Finally, Derrick Williams poured in 32 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as No. 5 Arizona upset No. 1 Duke, 93-77. Kyrie Irving scored 28 for the Blue Devils. Arizona will advance to face Connecticut on Saturday.

Here's an updated bracket reflecting last night's games (PDF).
