Bulling through double teams and soaring in for vicious dunks, Blake Griffin finished with 33 points and 14 rebounds to power Oklahoma to a 73-63 victory over Michigan on Saturday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

The Sooners (29-5), the top seed in the South Region, advanced to play the Syracuse-Arizona State winner in next week's regional semifinals in Memphis, Tenn.

The 10th-seeded Wolverines (21-14) pulled off a mild upset in the opening round by withstanding Clemson's relentless pressure, but couldn't handle Griffin's tenacity to make it two upsets in a row.
