 RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Stephen Curry scored 25 of his 30 points in the second half and Davidson staged a remarkable comeback behind its star sophomore to stun mighty Georgetown 74-70 on Sunday in the second round of the Midwest Regional.
Curry missed 10 of his first 12 shots but stepped up at crunch time for Davidson, which trailed by 16 points with 15 minutes left. He had the go-ahead basket, a key 3-pointer, and then hit five of six free throws in the final 23 seconds.
Jason Richards added 20 points for Davidson (28-6), which hadn't won an NCAA tournament game since 1969 before Friday. The Wildcats advanced to face Wisconsin on Friday in Detroit.
Jessie Sapp scored 14 points and Jonathan Wallace added 12 points for second-seeded Georgetown (28-6), which lost despite shooting 63 percent from the field.
Villanova 84, Siena 72
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Scottie Reynolds scored 25 points and Corey Stokes added 20 as the 12th-seeded Wildcats beat tiny Siena to reach the round of 16 for the third time in four years.
Villanova (22-12), one of the last teams picked for the tournament field, advanced to play top-seeded Kansas (33-3) in the regional semifinals in Detroit.
Alex Franklin led Siena (23-11) with 18 points, but the Saints didn't get the kind of performances they needed from Kenny Hasbrouck, Edwin Ubiles and Tay Fisher, who all played major roles in the team's 21-point upset of fourth-seeded Vanderbilt in the first round.
Hasbrouck had 17 points, but was only 5-of-15 from the field. Ubiles missed his first seven shots and finished 3-of-11 for 12 points, while Fisher was held to five points.
South Regional
Texas 75, Miami 72
NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A.J. Abrams calmly sank two free throws with 9.5 seconds remaining, giving the second-seeded Longhorns just enough margin to hold off Miami.
Abrams gave Texas a 74-69 lead, but the Longhorns weren't quite safe yet. Miami's Raymond Hicks made a 3-pointer, and D.J. Augustin then shot an air ball on his first of two free throws with 1.8 seconds to play. Augustin made the second, though, to preserve the win.
Abrams scored 26 points on six 3-pointers for the second consecutive game. Texas (30-6) advances to the regional semifinals to play third-seeded Stanford on Friday.
Jack McClinton scored 18 points for Miami (23-11).
East Regional
Tennessee 76, Butler 71, OT
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - JaJuan Smith hit four straight free throws in the final 13.6 seconds of overtime and the Volunteers survived a game they nearly turned into a rout.
The Vols (31-4) scored six straight points inside after the Bulldogs took their first lead in the final 2 minutes of OT, including benched guard Ramar Smith's basket with 27 seconds left to make it 72-68. That after Tennessee led by 13 early in the game.
A.J. Graves led Butler (30-4) with 21 points on just 6-of-18 shooting. Mike Green added 15 points, seven rebounds and five assists before fouling out late in overtime.
It was the first time two teams with 30 wins played each other in the second round.
West Regional
Western Kentucky 72, San Diego 63
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Behind Courtney Lee's dazzling first-half performance and some clutch shooting down the stretch, the 12th-seeded Hilltoppers advanced to the round of 16 for the first time in 15 years and have a date with top-seeded UCLA in Phoenix.
Lee finished with 29 points, including a huge 3-pointer that gave his team the lead for good with 6:17 remaining. Six straight free throws in the final 34 seconds sealed the victory.
Tyrone Brazelton added 15 points for the Hilltoppers (29-6).
Gyno Pomare had 20 points and nine rebounds for the Toreros (22-14), who overcame a 15-point deficit in the second half before fading in the closing minutes.
