Still, Villanova has drained 436 3-pointers and enter the Final Four just six shy of the NCAA single-season record for made 3-pointers set by VMI in 2007.

Kaler called such a model "a slippery slope". In watching MI in the NCAA tournament, I find it hard to believe that is the same bunch Nebraska beat by 20 earlier in the season. Custer was the Larry Bird MVC Player of the Year this season. Not only does Sister Jean love the Ramblers, but her love for the game of basketball is genuine and contagious. And if they continue playing the way they do, they just might win their first national title since 2008. They ran North Carolina out of the gym (86-65), then laid an egg against MI (99-72). "For us, it's an opportunity to go back to where we felt like we didn't really give our best effort", UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. The Huskies are undefeated again after knocking out defending national champion SC in the Albany Region final. Well, Wagner is hoping the sneakers can make it through two more games.

They are the bluebloods of basketball - where deep NCAA Tournament runs are the norm, NBA prospects play, hardwood rules the sports landscape and an air of superiority reigns in programs rich in tradition and with alumni rich enough to help fund state-of-the-art practice facilities or arenas.

Kansas is the underdog heading into their matchup Saturday against Villanova. Some big-name schools were left out, but VCU had a higher ranking in the ratings percentage index, had played a strong schedule and once in, the Rams kept knocking off big-name schools in the tournament - Southern California, Georgetown, Purdue, Florida State and Kansas. I saw the excitement of the people in the streets. "They're gonna win. They have Sister Jean behind them", said Ramblers fan Mari Tarallo. The Wildcats reached the Final Four for the second time in three seasons, in part, because they rank No.1 nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency (127.3) and lead the NCAA in scoring offense with 86.6 points per game.

The Nigerian government approved her visa on Thursday, paving the way for a long-awaited reunion. "We are very talented offensively and have a lot of guys who can really score the ball and make plays for others, but when we're playing defense together that's what makes us really special". "It will be worth it". "It's going to be emotional for me". But is that what college basketball is for? In the NCAA Tournament second round in Wichita, freshman Jordan Poole hit an off-balance three-point shot to stun No. 6 seed Houston.

In 2013 and 2016, Loyola-Chicago won nationional Championships of the Intercollegiate Bioethics Bowl.

Center Cameron Krutwig says the team is wary of falling into what he calls "The Cinderella Trap". All coaches agree, I think, that the wins never feel as good as the losses feel bad, but winning that one game certainly feels probably better than all the losses added up feels bad.

"We've always had to move our chapter meetings around because no one wants to be known as the Jayhawk gathering place in Manhattan", said Stopple. Before Sister Jean and Father Rob can square off in prayer, Loyola must find a way to beat a talented No. 3 seed MI and the Wildcats have to deal with Kansas.

It's Notre Dame's first trip to the national semifinals since 2015.

National Football League kicker Jay Feely and CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta will do analysis and reporting for their alma mater, Michigan. In its second Final Four run in three seasons, Villanova is looking for its second national title in that span. All the games are on TBS.
