IU rallies to top Temple, advance to Sweet 16

Victor Oladipo hit a key 3-pointer with 13 seconds remaining and Indiana, minutes away from being the second No. 1 seed to be swept from the NCAA tournament, held off Temple 58-52 on Sunday in the East Regional. The Hoosiers (29-6) trailed by four with 2:56 left, but closed with a big run to advance to the round of 16 for the second straight year. Indiana will play No. 4 seed Syracuse in the regional semifinals on Thursday in Washington. [ BOX | AP RECAP | NCAA BRACKET | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT | B1G DUNKS ] [ RELATED: Quick

Quick Hit: Craft hits incredible winner

Ohio State is headed to its fourth straight Sweet 16, the program’s longest streak and the nation’s longest current streak. How did it get there? Simple: Aaron Craft. The junior hit a buzzer-beating trey to make up for a trio of late missed free throws and send Ohio State past Iowa State, 78-75. Read more about the game: [ BOX | AP RECAP | NCAA BRACKET | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT | B1G DUNKS ] Why Ohio State won: Despite struggling late from the free-throw line and making some costly turnovers, Aaron Craft remain unmoved as the last few seconds

Sweet shot: Craft trey sends Ohio State to Sweet 16

Aaron Craft hit a 3-pointer with a half-second left, and Ohio State escaped Dayton – a place of heartaches – as the lone high seed left in the NCAA tournament’s wild West Regional, beating Iowa State 78-75 on Sunday. No. 2 Ohio State (28-7) needed Craft’s only 3-pointer of the game – an arching shot over 6-foot-7 defender Georges Niang from the top of the key – to avoid yet another upset in the West. Four of the top five seeds have fallen fast and hard in that most-busted bracket. The Buckeyes’ 10th straight win sends them into the round

Tough to top Big Ten's start to NCAA tourney

Yes, I realize Sunday features four games involving Big Ten teams. And yes, I realize the Big Ten could go 0-4. It isn’t likely, but it could happen. Regardless, it’s impossible to ignore what the Big Ten has done through the first three days of the Big Dance. In a tournament loaded with upsets (No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast over No. 2 Georgetown & No. 14 Harvard over No. 3 New Mexico, among others) and near-historical close calls (No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 16 Western Kentucky & No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 16 Southern), the Big Ten’s 8-1 start is

Quick Hit: Spartans imposed will on Tigers

For the fifth time in the last six seasons, Tom Izzo and Michigan State are headed to the Sweet 16. The Spartans clinched their latest regional semifinal berth by dispatching Memphis, 70-48, Saturday afternoon.

The imposing Spartans also imposed their will

Clothes Call: Another ripped Michigan jersey

It’s been a tough season for Michigan basketball jerseys. In mid-January, Trey Burke and Jordan Morgan’s jerseys ripped at Minnesota, causing the Wolverines to wear last year’s road uni the rest of the season. Another Michigan jersey met its demise in Saturday’s NCAA tourney victory over VCU. This time, it was Glenn Robinson III’s home jersey. Like Burke in the aforementioned game at Minnesota, Robinson III donned Michigan’s emergency No. 12 the rest of the game. So, what does this mean for Michigan’s home threads going forward – assuming it’s the higher seed again? Here’s what adidas emailed: “We have

Harris, Payne lift MSU past Memphis, into Sweet 16

Gary Harris scored 16 of his career-high 23 points in the first half to help third-seeded Michigan State cruise past sixth-seeded Memphis 70-48 on Saturday, putting the Spartans in the round of 16 for the fifth time in six years. Michigan State (27-8) will play the winner of the Duke-Creighton game on Friday in the Midwest Regional semifinals at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Tigers (31-5) advanced in the NCAA tournament for the first time in Josh Pastner’s four seasons. [ BOX | AP RECAP | NCAA BRACKET | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT | B1G DUNKS ] HALFTIME: Gary

Quick hit: What 'Havoc?' Michigan rolls VCU

Many experts thought VCU’s “Havoc” defense would give Michigan fits. Not so much. The Wolverines, despite committing 12 turnovers, steamrolled the previous Cinderella program, 78-53, en route to becoming the first team to advance to the Sweet 16. Read more about this game: [ BOX | AP RECAP | NCAA BRACKET | SCORES | ALL PHOTOS | CONNECT | B1G DUNKS ] Why Michigan won: The Wolverines’ guards deftly handled VCU’s vaunted “Havoc” defense, which led to many easy baskets. That’s why Michigan shot 51 percent. And when the Wolverines missed, they often got the rebound en route to notching a 41-26

Michigan drills VCU, 78-53, advances to Sweet 16

Mitch McGary had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and fourth-seeded Michigan breezed through VCU’s vaunted pressure with a clinical performance Saturday, beating the fifth-seeded Rams 78-53 to advance to the NCAA round of 16 for the first time since 1994. Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. rarely looked rattled against VCU, and although Michigan (28-7) committed 12 turnovers, the Rams couldn’t turn many of them into quick scoring opportunities. McGary, a 6-foot-10 freshman, set season highs in scoring and rebounding. VCU had no answer for him around the basket, and when the Rams couldn’t create easy baskets with their pressure,

Quick hit: Gophers turn it around

The Gophers often found easy access to the rim, hitting 50 percent of their shots. And Minnesota was on fire from beyond the arc, hitting 9-of-16 (56 percent). No doubt, UCLA missed injured star freshman Jordan Adams, as the Bruins had a short rotation. Still, Minnesota deserves credit. This was an inspired effort by the Golden Gophers, who entered the game riding a three-game losing skein and losers of seven of the last 10 games. No matter, Minnesota lives to fight another day, as Tubby Smith notches his first NCAA win as Gophers coach after two one-and-down trips—2010 loss to
