College Basketball:



RALEIGH, N.C. _ Third-seeded North Carolina State faces sixth-seeded Kentucky in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, with the winner advancing to the Greensboro Regional semifinals. By Joedy McCreary. UPCOMING: Developing from 7 p.m. game; 500 words, photos.

UNDATED _ Chalk one up for the seeded favorite in the NCAA Tournament. The biggest upset this March isn’t a wild heave at the horn for a winner from a No. 15 seed or a First Four team somehow weaving into the second weekend — it’s the lack of genuine stunners to shake up the bracket.
