Slocum's 70-foot shot capped a pivotal run, and the Terrapins blew past West Virginia 83-56 Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. "So, you have to accept it".
The other half of Friday's bracket in NY features fourth-seeded Florida (26-8) against No. 8 seed Wisconsin (27-9), which upset the reigning champion Wildcats on Saturday. "Some of them we won, and some we lost". He was aggressive, which is very important because he looked a little bit passive late in the season. They led by 17 early on, but were down 65-60 with three and a half minutes left before a late comeback gave them a 72-65 win over the Razorbacks. You'll have Xavier looking to keep the magic going as an 11-seed, and MI looking to firebomb its way to the Elite 8.
The site said it was the longest verified ideal run in online bracket history, the previous record being 36-0 by a fan in 2014. A year after having six teams in the final 16, North Carolina stands alone following a disastrous week for the ACC.
"Tell (critics) to go play MI".
Collins' exasperated expression (s) as he listened to a reporter relay the NCAA's detailed explanation of the sequence of events that led to the Northwestern coach's technical foul, which inevitably changed the complexion of his team's game, has already gone viral. It was a rematch of the 2014 game when eighth-seeded Kentucky ended top-seeded Wichita State's flawless season in the second round.
That is, until the second half started.
Expectations were modest because the Gators lost big man John Egbunu to injury in mid-February, and then lost three of four games before the NCAA Tournament. Officials are only human, but this was an unfortunate series of events.
A New Sesame Street Character Named Julia Has Autism
So the team collaborated with autism experts to select a series of traits that would best represent a child on the spectrum. Julia isn't the first character on TV to highlight people on the spectrum. "I'm just hoping to bring her the heart".
#2 Duke was coming off an ACC Tournament victory and was riding high, listed as a top three favorite to win the title. Let's say that if, after an ultra-successful coaching run at Wichita State, one aspired to become coach at a tradition-rich program with a vacancy such as, say, Indiana. The Cowboys and Wolverines put on an offensive showcase, but it was the hot shooting of MI in the second half that allowed John Beilein's group to advance.
SEED THOUGHTS: The No. 4 seeds all advanced to the Sweet 16, the only line that didn't lose a team.
The best moment? The celebration afterwards. Few coaches have escaped the wet form of congratulations. If you've watched the tournament coverage, you've likely seen the teams douse their coaches with water in the locker room after a big win.
Tar Heels fans are probably feeling pretty good after the way everything played out on Sunday. Of the five double-digit seeds most likely to win their first games, only Marquette failed to do so.
To make things better, in the night session at the same arena, UNC's biggest rival, Duke, lost to 7th seeded SC 88-81. That didn't stop them from bouncing back with five the next two years (which also saw a Duke national championship in 2015, a North Carolina national final appearance in 2016, and a Syracuse Final Four appearance that year as well), so we can't conclude that the conference is in real trouble. Guard Sindarius Thornwell is the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, and Frank Martin's team plays some hellacious defense, which should travel well in a Sweet 16 game against athletic Baylor at Madison Square Garden.
The Jayhawks have replaced Duke as the second favorite, following the Blue Devils' second-round loss to SC.
