State fans cheering on the Wildcats

The team that made history for being the first No. 16 seed to beat a No. 1 seed in the NCAA men's basketball tournament lost to ninth-seeded Kansas State 50-43.

Sneed answered with a steal and breakaway dunk and later followed a missed shot with another dunk that put Kansas State up 44-38 with three minutes to play.

Against Creighton, Kansas State shot 47 percent from 3-point range, its highest mark in that category since January.

Odom signed a seven-year deal with UMBC two seasons ago, and the university recently opened a new $90 million arena.

"Just to be here is a blessing for sure".

It was Lyles who got the Retrievers here, so it was only fitting he carried them to a historic win. And they went 9-of-18 from the free throw line. Like the pairing off for a middle-school dance, one-by-one, UMBC players and Kansas State embraced. "I've been able to mature as a player and as a man".

Maura is a diminutive point guard from Puerto Rico who also excels at volleyball. I will take Cinderella with the points.

Then there's leading-scorer Lyles, the son of a former National Football League defensive back, who could have played his final season of college eligibility elsewhere but elected to remain with the program to help continue its dramatic turnaround. On Friday, they became the first 16th seed to beat the No. 1 seed with their stunning 74-54 win over Virginia.

Indian Wells: Williams And Halep Suffer Shock Semi-Final Losses
I have to be really focused on the next match, not thinking about the future. "I think everything is pretty solid". Kasatkina is now 2-1 overall against Williams having beaten her the first time they play in Auckland in 2016.

UMBC scored 53 points in the second half - 1 point shy of how many Virginia scored in the entire game.

"We just started jumping from bed to bed and hugging each other", Maura said.

"We felt like our only chance was to pressure their guards". "We made history. Can't be mad at that".

Kentucky's next NCAA Tournament matchup is set.

UMBC pressured the Cavaliers' guards, trapped the team's big men in the paint and jammed the lane.

Dean Wade - the Wildcats' leading scorer who has been nursing a foot injury suffered in the Big XII Tournament - will miss Sunday's game. He added 6 rebounds and 2 blocks. No Retrievers game will be televised without a mention of the accomplishment. UMBC stifled Kansas State for the first few minutes before the Wildcats mounted a comeback.

Florida State 75, Xavier 70: PJ Savoy buried the go-ahead 3-pointer, and the Seminoles rallied from a 12-point, second-half deficit to record a victory over the Musketeers in Nashville, Tenn. Defense is ultimately what is taking Bruce Weber's team to the second weekend. "People that feel like they are underdogs in their life, I think we gave hope to everything they want to do in life". "Then Coach Odom and his staff came in, we won 21 games and this year we had a tremendous season". "We definitely didn't think we were going out tonight".

Makol Mawien scored 11 points and also played strong defense, particularly in the closing moments as UMBC tried to mount a comeback.
