The field was finalized Sunday when second-seeded Memphis defeated No. 10 Maryland 89-70, and No. 3 Missouri got by No. 6 Marquette 83-79.

On Saturday, top-seeded UConn advanced with a 92-66 victory over Texas A&M, and No. 5 Purdue moved on with a 76-74 win over No. 4 Washington.

Four of the top five seeds in the West are still alive.
