It was a better day for Pac-12 basketball teams at the NCAA tournament, as all three schools in action today — Arizona, Stanford and UCLA — won their games and advanced to the round of 32.

Through the first two days of the tournament, Pac-12 teams are 4-2. Oregon won on Thursday, while Arizona State lost at the buzzer to Texas and Colorado was blown out by Pittsburgh. John Canzano has a good look at Oregon guard Jason Calliste, one of the nation’s most efficient scorers.

Oregon is the only Pac-12 team in action on Saturday. The Ducks face No. 2 seed Wisconsin at 4:45 p.m. on CBS.

— Stanford was the first Pac-12 team to advance on Friday, holding off No. 7 seed New Mexico in an ugly 58-53 victory. The Cardinal will play against No. 2 seed Kansas on Sunday (9:15 a.m. Sunday, CBS).

— No. 1 seed Arizona got off to a bit of a slow start, but eventually breezed past Weber State to advance to a Sunday matchup with No. 8 seed Gonzaga (6:40 p.m. Sunday, TBS).

— And No. 4 seed UCLA took care of business, too, beating No. 13 seed Tulsa, 76-59. The Bruins on Sunday will face No. 12 seed Stephen F. Austin (4:10 p.m. Sunday, TBS), which upset No. 5 seed VCU on Friday.

Here are all of yesterday’s scores.

Here is a schedule of all of today’s games.
