Grant Halverson/Getty Images Sport (RALEIGH, N.C.) --  Joe Harris scored 16 points as top-seeded Virginia dunked (8) Memphis 78-60 on Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.

Anthony Gill added 13 points for the Cavaliers (30-6), who earned their first trip to the round of 16 since 1995.

"To get to the Sweet 16, that's the rarefied air of college basketball, and you're going to have to play," head coach Tony Bennett said. "We know who's waiting, we know how good they are, and it will be us trying to test our game against one of the teams that's playing its best basketball right now."

Virginia led by 15 at halftime and pushed that to 27 points late, dominating the game from start to finish.  Austin Nichols led the Tigers (24-10), with 15 points.  They shot 41 percent from the field as a team.

The Cavaliers will face fourth-seeded Michigan State (28-8) on Friday night in the East Regional semifinals at Madison Square Garden.

Smart's 39 Leads (7) Oklahoma State over Memphis 101-80

Jamie Squire/Getty Images(STILLWATER, Okla.) --  There's at least one player who isn't too thrilled with freshmen being the talk of the college basketball world this season, so he went out and did something about it.

Sophomore guard Marcus Smart scored a career-high 39 points as No. 7 Oklahoma State cruised to a 101-80 win over No. 11 Memphis on Tuesday night in front of Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant.

Smart scored 26 points in the first half alone.  He hit five three-pointers on the night while easily surmounting his previous career high of 28 points, set last season against Oklahoma.

Markel Brown added 20 points for the Cowboys (4-0), who admit to having a chip on their shoulders after losing to Oregon in last year's NCAA tournament.

"We just wanted to show everybody that we weren't backing down, and that's what we did tonight," Smart said.

Nick King scored 23 points off the bench to pace the Tigers (1-1).

Big East Conference Looking to Add 14th Football Member

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(EAST HARTFORD, CONN) -- The Big East Conference wants to add a 14th football team, newly appointed Big East commissioner Mike Aresco annonuced on Thursday night.

Aresco also confirmed that the conference is planning to have a championship game after next season.

West Virginia left the Big East for the Big 12 conference beginning this season.  Pittsburgh and Syracuse are leaving for the ACC beginning next season.

The completely revamped Big East conference will include Boise State and San Diego State for football, as well as Central Florida, SMU, Memphis, and Houston for all sports.

Temple also joined this year in all sports, immediately replacing West Virginia.

Navy will also join for football only in 2015, bringing the total number of teams to 13.

Aresco's ultimate goal as commissioner is to make sure the Big East is recognized as one of the top six football conferences in the nation.

"You have a pretty huge divide now between our conference and anything below us, and almost no gap between us and what they are calling the Big Five," Aresco said. "We say it's the Big Six. I'm not going to yield on that at all."

Memphis Will Join Big East

Mitchell Layton/Getty Images)(NEW YORK) -- It looks like Rick Pitino will get his wish. Memphis will announce Wednesday that they will join the Big East in all sports starting in 2013. 

Pitino has been on record saying the Big East should pursue Memphis and Temple since they will be losing Syracuse, West Virginia, and Pittsburgh.

Memphis is most valuable to the conference in men's basketball. The program has made 23 NCAA tournament appearances and has played in two national championship games.

Memphis previously tried to enter the Big East in 2005 when Louisville, DePaul, Cincinnati, South Florida, and Marquette joined the conference, but they were denied.

Memphis will have to pay a $500,000 dollar exit fee to the Conference USA and forfeit their share of television right revenue valued at approximately $6.13 million, according to a league spokeswoman.
