East Region notes: Tennessee 'crushed' after loss; Loyola's focus key

March Madness midday wrap: Duke, Villanova advance with big wins

So 98-year-old Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt was more thankful than shocked when Donte Ingram hit a last-second 3-pointer to beat Miami in the Ramblers' first NCAA Tournament game in 33 years.

Loyola, an 11 seed, is in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1985. The shot hit the front of the rim and bounced up the backboard before falling home with 3.6 seconds on the clock.

It came to a head in the final possession, when Florida got three different looks from 3-point range with a chance to tie. Admiral Schofield led the Volunteers (26-9) with 14 points.

She also had some words of wisdom to share with the players before they faced Tennessee. With Buffalo losing and either No. 10-seed Butler or No. 11-seed Syracuse counting as anything close to a mid-major, Loyola, Marshall and UMBC are the only true Cinderella teams left in the tournament. On the other side of the bracket features fifth-seeded Kentucky against ninth-seeded Kansas State, with the winners of the games meeting Saturday for a trip to San Antonio.

The Gators shot 27.3 percent from 3-point range.

MI (30-7) advanced to its fourth Sweet 16 appearance in the last six years and marked its first 30-win season since the 2012-13 campaign.

A religious sister who is the longtime chaplain of the Loyola University Chicago men's basketball team credited the pregame prayer and the players' solid teamwork for the Ramblers' thrilling, last-second 64-62 win over the University of Miami in the NCAA Tournament on March 15.

Williams scored 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting in 34 minutes.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a big early lead, withstood a second-half Ohio State charge and made the big plays down the stretch to earn a spot in the West Region semifinals against the Xavier-Florida State victor in Los Angeles.

She has not missed a single game this year and although she is restricted to a wheelchair on the sidelines, her limitation is movement has not limited her "divine" influence on the team. Totals 25-55 3-6 62.

Oregon State: The Beavers were not an average No. 6 seed, and proved it. The Musketeers and Seminoles meet on Sunday in Nashville, Tenn.

MIDWEST: No. 1 Kansas (28-7) vs.

Delgado starred in defeat for Seton Hall (22-12) with 24 points and 23 rebounds. The upset was cause to recall Harvard's 16th-seeded women downing No. 1 Stanford 71-67 in their Division I tournament 20 years earlier.

Marvin Bagley III and the rest of his potentially one-and-done teammates appear to be all ears.

Loyola-Chicago was able to drain the clock down and got the ball to Custer with just a few seconds remaining.

Pivec finished with 19 points and seven rebounds to offset her nine turnovers. Duke has defeated both of those teams once this season.

"A place that has "Summitt" on the court means a lot to all of us who are a part of this game", said Rueck, referring to legendary Tennessee coach Pat Summitt.

Big Blue may have gotten a big break when Buffalo shocked Arizona on Thursday, but they out-talented Davidson and out-toughed Buffalo to reach what's often been known as Cat-lanta for Thursday night's South Regional semi.
