Warren returning?
While Blake Griffin is expected to declare for the NBA Draft, OU freshman guard Willie Warren says he will not follow suit.

"I’ll be back,” Warren said Sunday. "It’s always been in my head that I’ll be back. In my head, I was never going to the NBA.”

Lawson tops all-tourney team
UNC’s Ty Lawson was named the regional’s most outstanding player. He was joined on the all-tournament team by teammates Danny Green and Tyler Hansbrough, Syracuse’s Jonny Flynn and Griffin.

Blue heaven
North Carolina fans turned out en masse Sunday, outnumbering OU fans 3-1 in making up the majority of the crowd of 17,025. Chapel Hill, N.C., is 730 miles from Memphis.

Two-point range
Poor shooting doomed the Sooners, just as it did in losses down the stretch of the regular season. OU made just two of 19 3-pointers and missed its first 15 attempts. The Sooners shot 62.8 percent from two-point range. By comparison, Carolina shot 56.7 percent from two-point range.
