Close range: Baylor grinds to Elite 8 in 62-51 win ova ‘Nova

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Top-seeded Baylor overcame some frigid outside shooting to move into the Elite Eight, getting 16 points from Adam Flagler in a 62-51 victory over Villanova and its versatile defense. The Bears came in as the nation’s leading 3-point team, shooting 41.5%. But they made only 3 of 19 against fifth-seeded Villanova’s mix of 2-3 zone and man. Davion Mitchell, a 46% shooter from 3 this season, went 0 for 3 in a 14-point night. Baylor started the season 18-0 and won its first-ever Big 12 regular-season title. Baylor will Arkansas on Monday with a trip to the Final Four at stake.
