games left at oracle arena. tonight the dubs face the mavericks. but they will be without steph curry, shawn livingston and andrew bogut, who are all resting. curry has played in 48 straight games since november. tipoff is 5:30 p.m. today eight teams will punch their tickets to the sweet 16 in the ncaa tournament. yesterday was filled with upsets. abc 7 sports director larry beil has the details in this morning's sports. good morning, everybody. russell turner must have felt right at home yesterday. the former assistant coach with the warriors and stanford is the head coach at uc irvine. the anteaters, seeded 13th in the ncaa tournament and they take down 4 seed kansas state. at the shark tank in san jose on a day of upsets, irvine goes on a 12-2 burst to end the first half. max hazard hits the three at the buzzer and sprints straight to the locker room. i'm outta here. we're tied at 30. hazard, a dangerous man, had 19.
6:45 am
zot, zot, zot. anteaters by 5. that's what they say at irvine. 43 seconds left, wildcats down two. barry brown, what did he do? he threw it out of bounds. that's your ball game. irvine with coach turner, upset win, 70-64. they will meet oregon next. zion williamson and top seed duke taking on north dakota state. zion is like a force of nature inside. he had 25 points, layup plus the foul there. on the free throw, which is a miss, out of my way, please, throwing it down. oh, he's not done. this would be your basic with authority. 85-62. how about ucf taking on vcu. the knights with 7'6" taco ball over tracy wilson, wears a size 22 show and he is a nightmare to defend. taco! you can't stop him. finished with a double-double. 13 points, 18 boards and 5 blocked shots. good luck. ucf cruises, 73-58.
6:46 am
they will face duke next. taco versus zion. matt olson may watch the first two months of the season. had surgery on his hamate bone. the injury occurred in the second game in japan. you see olson fouls the ball off and winces in pain. he actually continued that at-bat and got a base hit before coming out of the contest. the hamate bone just above the wrist, recovery can be a month, sometimes as much as two months. so a setback for the a's. to the ice we go now, riveting in anaheim, huh? sharks trying to snap a four-game losing streak. power play has been dreadful. joe thornton with a shot. they break through and tie it at 2. sharks were trailing for a third time. 2:40 left. justin brawn, just his second goal of the year to tie it at 3. we go to overtime. silverberg just walks right in. a little wrister. sharks get a point but their losing streak is five with only seven games left. 4-3 ducks the final. that was a bad loss.
6:47 am
that's a wrap on morning sports. have a great weekend, everybody, i'm larry beil. all right. now we're going to check the forecast with meteorologist lisa argen. hi, lisa. >> hey, kate, good morning to you. sunrise coming up in 25 minutes. the sun sets at 7:24. we do believe it's going to be a dry day. we do still have some showers in the east bay in walnut creek, also around fremont, but they are heading out of town. most of the activity -- we had enough, right, from all day yesterday through the overnight hours. so we are looking at conditions to improve out there. but as we look at the forecast tomorrow for the runners for the oakland marathon, there they go, and it's looking good. we will have partly cloudy skies. the clouds will increase throughout the day. temperatures in the mid and upper 50s by the time we get to the early morning hours. so keep going, right? keep going. as we look outside, the exploratorium camera, you can see the clouds. it's been dry in san francisco the past couple of hours.
6:48 am
look how quickly the system is pushing to the east. but there still are showers around highway 4, the higher elevations east of fremont. in towards livermore, 580, the altamont pass and union city in particular, some showers here from 880, whipple road, and alvarado niles road. taking some time to dry out. 680 walnut creek, a little break around danville but there's pockets of showers out there around pittsburg and highway 4. in the mountains it's snowing, low 30s with our winter weather advisory right on through the afternoon, expiring at 5:00. 2 to 4 inches more of snow with 8 inches over the peaks. it is breezy out there. this is santa cruz, where temperatures are in the upper 40s right now. low 60s later on with partly cloudy skies. it is 52 in san francisco, 53 mountain view, half moon bay 52. the golden gate bridge, the rain
6:49 am

million followers on instagram. he has no pictures of pretty people, places or food. instead, it's all physics experiments. >> somebody started following me. suddenly i got a big spike in followers. it was elon musk. he since deleted his instagram accounts. that's kind of sad. fun is in the title, physics fun. i put the two words together because usually people don't associate those two words together, but i want them to. i want them to realize physics is amazing. the tag line is physics is the real magic of the universe. i had a few things posted. i woke up one day and there was like 4,000 people following me. i thought that was interesting. i started to post a little more often. suddenly i had 20,000 followers. then i started posting on a daily basis. there's enough people that feel passionate as i do that i have a million people that decided to follow me. i wouldn't have guessed that. this is a coil of wire and the coil is hooked up to some

l.e.d.s. if i spin this rapidly, you see that it generates electricity. if you can spin this thing on its side, it will actually flip up. if i spin it -- some of the comments are i didn't know this was physics. or physics really is fun. or just people are surprised. i've even had people write me and say they started their own collection of these kind of things. it's really rewarding just to see the response. it kind of looks -- if i turn it around here it will always hop up onto its stem like so. strange physics interacting with the tabletop. everything i post, i want them to see something that they might not have seen before and realize this is part of our natural world. you'll see here i look smarter every day, i just made a post, that's kind of fun. if i look to my likes, it will update. so most people if i just swipe,
6:53 am
you'll see here's three more likes and a follow just happened. if i swipe again, four more likes just happened. i spend a lot of time in here with the students. my favorite thing is when an engineering major decides to become a physics major. they just find the material so amazing they change their life and go for a different career path. we have a leaf blower where we blow like a beach ball and it stays suspended in air. i set it back on the table, it's still winding down. as i'm walking over to look at my notes again, it fell over and blew all my notes into this big cloud of notes like feathers being blown all over the room. so the students went crazy on that one. i'm almost thinking of doing it on purpose in the future. i guess my main thrust is i want my videos to speak for themselves. i want the science to be first and foremost. over a million people have joined me to look at most of'vee

tonight's powerball jackpot is making a lot of people do ae above $600 million. lottery officials now estimate a winning ticket would bring in a cool $625 million. so much to do with that. that would be the seventh largest in u.s. history with an estimated lump sum payout of $380 million before taxes. but at 1 in 292 million the odds are, well, extremely low. let's get a final check of your weather with lisa argen. lisa, odds are better of sunshine? >> yes, the rain ending, you're absolutely right. the percentages of rain going down, but we still have some showers here in the east bay from 580 in livermore, 880 around union city and that's where we're going to go in a little bit closer for whipple road, san andreas drive. so be careful up there. up further to the north south of
