MI shoots the lights out to win March Madness thriller

Injured Duck: Chris Boucher hardly envisioned watching the NCAA Tournament from the bench with a serious injury, but his role changed in a hurry for No. 3 seed OR when he went down with a torn ACL during a semifinal victory against California during last weekend's Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas. I personally have them in my Final Four. Sometimes that's a good thing. Can the Spartans pull off the upset of the tournament thus far by beating the Jayhawks?

Frank Mason - Kansas has one of the best collection of guards in the country.

Miami will now look to regroup and start work on next season.

"But I'm very, very proud of my guys - it's a very young team that made it to the big dance".

The Miami Hurricanes were eliminated from the NCAA tournament with a 78-58 loss to the Michigan State Spartans on Friday. While the Spartans may have an edge up front, the backcourt appears to fall squarely in Miami's favor. But in the tournament, they became an inspired team, playing with the kind of energy, confidence, and joy that players have who know what they're doing, know that they know what they're doing, and are having a blast doing it together.

Added Mason: "It doesn't really matter what year a player is". Michigan State will have their hands full with guarding him on Sunday. Clutch free throws from Cassius Winston will lead the Spartans to a four-point victory and a rematch with Purdue.

Struggling Middlesbrough target Hiddink after Karanka's departure

Walton became the first player to score at least 25 points, log at least 10 assists and five rebounds in an NCAA Tournament game since Dwyane Wade did so in 2003. Derrick Walton Jr.is the leading the way, Michigan's won six in a row and now the popular Cinderella pick is one win away from making the Sweet 16.

Brad Underwood is leaving Oklahoma State after one year as the Cowboys head coach to take the same job at IL.

With quick play, exceptional ball-movement and crisp passing, Michigan State defeated the zone. The Spartans will have to make the most of their offensive possessions and play excellent defense to shorten the game. They do that and they'll have a chance. The Badgers are hopeful they will break this streak next year and join the top of the Big Ten in their postseason escapades.

One thing that will give Self some reassurance and Izzo some concern as they prepare for Sunday's game is the experience factor. Kansas averages 13.1 turnovers per game, which is a lot, and in their four losses they gave it up almost 15 times per contest. If they win the turnover battle and are able to cash those Kansas turnovers into points then they'll be able to hang around with the Jayhawks.

Jackson, a Detroit native, was highly recruited by head coach Tom Izzo since his freshman year of high school.

The Hurricanes (21-11) are the No. 8 seed in the NCAA tournament's Midwest Regional, while the Spartans (19-14) are No. 9. "You can't let "em punch you in the mouth and get down early". I think in Kansas they thought it was - there was no malfunction and everything was handled perfectly in Kansas, and I'm sure in the state of MI they thought totally otherwise.
