MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Jordan Sibert scored 18 points, Kendall Pollard added a season-high 12 and Dayton rolled past Stanford, 82-72, on Thursday to make the NCAA tournament’s Elite Eight for the first time since 1984.

No. 11 Dayton (26-10) continued its underdog run and this one wasn’t particularly close. The 6-foot-4 Sibert was spectacular, slashing to the basket and draining 3-pointers, to help the Flyers lead for almost the entire night.

Dayton showed its depth early, using 12 players in the first half to slowly wear Stanford down.

No. 10 Stanford (23-13) had the superior post play, but it wasn’t enough. Chasson Randle led the Cardinal with 21 points, but shot 5 of 21 from the field. Dwight Powell added 17 and Stefan Nastic — who fouled out with more than five minutes left — had 15.

Sibert finished 7 of 12 from the field, including 4 of 9 from 3-point range. He had plenty of help. Devin Oliver scored 12 points and Matt Kavanaugh added 10.

Dayton plays top-seeded Florida on Saturday in the South Regional final.

Florida 79, UCLA 68: at Memphis, Tenn., Michael Frazier II hit five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points as Florida reached its fourth consecutive NCAA regional final.

The Gators (35-2) also extended the best winning streak in school history to 29 straight in reaching the South Regional final.

Scottie Wilbekin added 13 points for Florida, which is back where the last three Gators seasons ended. Casey Prather had 12 points, and Dorian Finney-Smith had 10. Kasey Hill had 10 assists.

UCLA (28-9) was back in a regional semifinal for the first time since 2008 under first-year coach Steve Alford.

Jordan Adams led the Bruins with 17 points, Kyle Anderson had 11 and five assists with nine rebounds. Travis Wear added 14.

Wisconsin 69, Baylor 52: at Anaheim, Frank Kaminsky scored 19 points and blocked six shots, and Wisconsin romped.

Ben Brust hit three 3-pointers and scored 14 points for the second-seeded Badgers (29-7), who jumped to a 14-point lead in the first half and never let up on the overmatched Bears (26-12).

The 7-foot Kaminsky and his disciplined teammates shredded the Baylor zone defense that played so well in the first two games. Wisconsin also methodically shut down Baylor’s talented offense while moving into its second regional final in 13 years under Bo Ryan, who has never reached a Final Four in a 700-win coaching career.

Cory Jefferson scored 15 points for the sixth-seeded Bears, who did little with their third Sweet 16 trip in five years.

Isaiah Austin and Kenny Chery scored 12 points apiece for Baylor, which made two of its 15 3-point attempts while trailing for the final 39 minutes. The Bears needed a late rally just to match their lowest-scoring performance of the season in the final seconds.

Wisconsin advanced to face top-seeded Arizona in the regional final Saturday at Honda Center.

Arizona 70, San Diego State 64: at Anaheim, Nick Johnson scored all of his 15 points in the last 2:45, after missing his first 10 shots, and Arizona rallied to advance to the final eight.

Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 15 points each for the top-seeded Wildcats (33-4).

Xavier Thames scored 25 points and Dwayne Polee added 13 points for the Aztecs (31-5).

Arizona coach Sean Miller joined his brother Archie in the final eight. The younger Miller coached Dayton to an 82-72 victory over Stanford of the Pac-12 in the South Regional semifinals.
