Jonathan Mills and Rashard McGill chipped in 10 points each for the Golden Eagles (27-9), who will advance to take on the BYU Cougars in the next round. Mills and McGill also accounted for eight rebounds each in the win.

Raheem Appleby pumped in 17 points for Louisiana Tech (27-7) as it lost four of its last five games to conclude its 2012-13 season. Alex Hamilton chipped in 15 points and six assists in the setback.
