UCLA takes on Gonzaga at 6:15pm Friday. Utah and Duke follow around 8:45pm.

On Duke's roster, forward Justise Winslow is having a homecoming of sorts. Winslow graduated from St. John's in Houston where he was known for his skills on the court. His coach, Harold Baber, said Winslow isn't just a great basketball player, he's also a great person. Baber stressed Winslow's humility.

"He's Houston through and though. Houston helped make him who his is," said Coach Baber. "He was made a player right here in Houston. Come out and support a great guy. He's a great guy."

Eyewitness Sports also caught up with Winslow's father, Rickie Winslow, earlier this week. He told us it's a bit nerve wracking watching his son play at such a high level.

"It's an incredible feeling just watching him on the court," said Rickie Winslow. "Things happen so quick. High School goes by in 4 years ... He's developing into such a great player."
