Sister Jean stealing the show at the NCAA tournament — March Madness

Sister Jean stealing the show at the NCAA tournament — March Madness”

Games featuring Cinderellas can't compete in ratings.

Said senior assistant captain Brett Gervais, "They are a quick team and they transitioned off of our turnovers". FSU would defeat #4 Gonzaga. They proceeded to obliterate the defending champions by 21 points, utterly dominating them in the paint and on the boards.

In one of next Saturday's semifinals, it's a barnburner of a matchup between top-seeded programs with rich histories: Villanova vs. Kansas. The lineup also includes top-15 teams from Kentucky (12th) and Denver (13th), as well as host and 24th-ranked Minnesota, No. 28 Iowa State and No. 35 Iowa.

Despite a 30-point effort from Purdue's Carsen Edwards, Texas Tech earned a convincing Sweet 16 win Friday night.

The Texas A&M Aggies took a different road to victory. From the start, MI showed that their victory the week before would not go down the same way. A last second three-point play would win the game and save their season. They earned 26 points.

Early in the second half, MI almost had a 30-point lead (60-32). Both teams traded punches all game. As a former basketball player and coach herself, she knows the game, giving the players a scouting report and leading them in prayer before each game.

Unfortunately, they found themselves helpless against the Buffalo Bulls' three-point barrage.

As McGraw expected, the top-seeded Fighting Irish did have a comeback waiting and it landed Notre Dame back on the cusp of another trip to the Final Four.

And this Cinderella story has a fairy godmother. Only #11 Syracuse was above the five seed.

This marks the end of a long drought for Florida State as they haven't seen the Elite Eight since 1993. His time represented a 0.49 second drop from his prelims time. "They get to experience the very best there is". Kansas winning (80-76). At the first media timeout of the half, Duke leads 36-35. But for Chris Beard to turn his program around from missing the Big Dance altogether last season, to an Elite Eight showing the next is nothing short of remarkable.

The two teams traded blows, and at one point (11:08 remaining), the Mountaineers of West Virginia held a six-point lead.

Devin Brosseau had Clarkson's best chance to score a goal to that point of the game at 16:50 of the period, but Hawkey moved quickly to the other side of the net and snagged it with his glove. Outscoring the Mountaineers 27-18 and winning 90-78. Duke shot 14 more free throws than the Orange, and connected on 11 of 16 attempts, while Syracuse hit its only two free throws. Blue Devils led for most of it, but the game never got out of control. Mabrey was 7 of 11 on 3-pointers and the Irish made 10 of 18 shots from behind the arc.

Nevada made their money with second-half comebacks. The lone departure, though, is a big one in Gulich. Syracuse would claw their way back, with Orange keeping the game within five. Now the Blue Devils await the National Basketball Association draft decisions from several potential one-and-done freshmen with next year's top recruiting class arriving over the summer. He now has collected 13 All-America honors over three seasons. "Getting in that final was insane, you know, it's insane". After the win Saturday, Les Hunter, a member of the 1963 team, said the Ramblers are capable of bringing home another championship.
