Levance Fields stole the show in the final minute for the No. 1 seed Pittsburgh Panthers [1] as he drained a desperation three from straightaway as the shot clock expired and then followed that up with a steal and a length-of-the-court drive and layup as the Panthers prevailed over No. 4 Xavier, 60-55.

Pittsburgh outscored Xavier 33-18 in the second half.

The Panthers advance to face the winner of the Villanova-Duke game in the nightcap. The East Regional championship will be played on Saturday at TD Banknorth Garden [2].
