NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - First Buffalo sent No. 4 seed Arizona packing. Then Maryland Baltimore County dispatched of No. 1 seed Virginia in the biggest surprise of all.

Consider the South Region officially up for grabs.

"Anybody could win it," Cincinnati guard Justin Jenifer said. "It could be us. It could be anybody else."

The highest seed remaining is Cincinnati, which earned the No. 2 seed and faces seventh-seeded Nevada (28-7) on Sunday. In Sunday's other South Region matchup, No. 9 seed Kansas State (23-11) meets 16th-seeded UMBC (25-10) in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Cincinnati (31-4) hasn't reached the regional semifinals since 2012 and has lost in the round of 32 two of the last three years. So the Bearcats certainly aren't taking this second-round matchup for granted as they chase their first Final Four berth since 1992.
