March Madness: Loyola-Chicago Upsets Miami In Dramatic Fashion

Loyola-Chicago upsets six seed Miami

Loyola-Chicago upsets six seed Miami

"Well, it's pretty simple to know why we call it 'March Madness, "' said Hurricanes coach Jim Larranaga, left holding his head in stunned disbelief after Ingram's shot.

In 2006, Larranaga took 11th-seeded George Mason to the Final Four. After the game, Ingram and Sister Jean shared a celebratory hug 25 years in the making.

Most Vol fans wouldn't have cared if Tennessee had won on a last-second shot, just as long as they won the game.

Ramblers pulled the first upset of the NCAA tourney with a 64-62 win over the Miami Hurricanes on a last second Donte Ingram three. Following a Raider three-pointer at midway through the second stanza to make the score 50-35, UT went 11-3 run over the next six minutes to put the game away.

PITTSBURGH - E.C. Matthews hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in overtime and one more that sealed it to help Rhode Island hold off dynamic scorer Trae Young and beat Oklahoma 83-78 Thursday in the Midwest Regional.

The Ramblers (29-5), who matched the school record for wins, advanced to face third-seeded Tennessee on Saturday.

ANSWERING THE PRAYER: Tennessee's Grant Williams was asked how the Volunteers could compete with the pregame presence the Ramblers enjoy: 98-year-old Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, the nun who leads the prayer as team chaplain and offers critiques of the players. "Thank God you did it because we knew we would do it".

While the Ramblers' bench poured on to the court to envelop Ingram in a mass of bodies, the defeated Hurricanes lay strewn across the American Airlines Center.

Needing some luck to extend the contest, Miami tossed the ball long into the Loyola-Chicago area hoping for a tip-in, but was unsuccessful as the buzzer sounded. Just like any other team, we want to compete, and we want to win games. Lonnie Walker, the Hurricanes' star freshman, caught the pass and turned upcourt.

Lamonte Turner topped the Volunteers attack with 17 points and nine assists on 4-11 and 9-10 from the stripe.

Wes Clark scored 25 points, Jeremy Harris added 23 and CJ Massinburg had 19 points for Buffalo, which shot 55 percent.

Browns could still draft Saquon Barkley after signing Carlos Hyde
The Browns lead the National Football League in cap space and lost starting running Isaiah Crowell in free agency to the Jets. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Browns are expected to sign Hyde once free agency opens on Wednesday afternoon.

Schmidt gets around in a wheelchair these days because of a broken hip that caused her to miss games this season - a rarity over almost 25 years.

After a relatively competitive first half, Tennessee unleashed its press in full force to cruise to another women's NCAA Tournament home win.

Duke's backcourt trio of Grayson Allen, Trevon Duval, and Gary Trent combined for 51 points and 18 assist of the team's 24 assists.

Roland Griffin paced Iona with 21 points and five rebounds in a reserved role.

Dusan Ristic had 16 points, and Deandre Ayton finished with 14 points and 13 rebounds to lead Arizona.

The teams combined for 53 fouls, resulting in 66 total free throws.

Instead, that survival attitude ultimately did the Canes in as Miami never found way to extend its lead or take over the game. Insult to injury followed when a Lykes rebound resulted in a Huell turnover and a game-tying 3-point attempt by Custer.

And, boy, did they run - right into the round of 32 against Kentucky on Saturday. Mike Daum scored 27 points for South Dakota State.

With 10 seconds left, the outlook was not good for the Ramblers.

The game was tied at 28 at halftime and Miami jumped out to a seven-point lead in the second half.
