DALLAS (AP) Loyola-Chicago's Sweet 16 dreams bounced on the front of the rim, lightly touched the backboard, and rattled a couple times before slipping through the net.

Another prayer answered in the waning seconds, and now Sister Jean's Ramblers are heading to Atlanta.

Clayton Custer's jumper got that friendly bounce with 3.6 seconds left, and 11th-seeded Loyola beat Tennessee 63-62 in a South Region second-round game Saturday night.


Gonzaga reaches fourth straight Sweet 16

BOISE, Idaho (AP) Zach Norvell Jr. pulled up for 3-pointers, drove fearlessly to the rim and bulled his way into the trees to snare rebounds.

A spectator during Gonzaga's Final Four run a year ago, the confident, extroverted freshman could be the ticket for a return trip.


Newman's 28 lead Kansas back to Sweet 16

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Udoka Azubuike had practiced once in the last 11 days because of a lingering knee injury, and the mammoth Kansas forward's three-minute stretch in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament was about as underwhelming as his herky-jerky free-throw stroke.

He managed to go 22 minutes against Seton Hall on Saturday night.


Evans' 3 pushes Texas Tech into Sweet 16

DALLAS (AP) Keenan Evans keeps making big plays, extending Texas Tech's season - and his time with second-year head coach Chris Beard.

They have another game with the Red Raiders headed to the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16 for the first time since 2005.

Bridges leads 3-happy 'Nova to Sweet 16

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jay Wright had some late-night restlessness because he could not turn off the TV as long as Virginia and UMBC were still playing. He met his Villanova team in the morning and the players at the breakfast tables were buzzing over basketball's biggest upset.

The reverberation from the 16-over-1 stunner was felt by another tourney top seed.


Duke freshmen power rout of Rhode Island

PITTSBURGH (AP) The same message comes from Mike Krzyzewski almost daily. While the Hall-of-Fame Duke coach makes an effort to mix it up when talking to his ridiculously young and ridiculously loaded team, the theme never changes.

This moment in the NCAA Tournament is precious. Don't take it for granted. Especially if it turns out to be the only one you'll get.


Purdue not yet ruling Hass out for NCAAs

DETROIT (AP) A day after Isaac Haas' season was declared over, there's now a bit of mystery surrounding the status of Purdue's star center.

That could be encouraging news for the second-seeded Boilermakers, who announced Friday that Haas would miss the rest of the NCAA Tournament with a broken elbow. On Saturday, a CBS reporter tweeted that Haas had practiced with the team, although coach Matt Painter tried to keep expectations low for a possible return.


UMBC basking in 15 minutes of NCAA fame

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) As the sun rose on the Saturday morning celebration of their unprecedented NCAA Tournament upset, Ryan Odom implored his suddenly-famous basketball team to get some sleep.

It was time for family and friends of UMBC to leave the hotel and for the Retrievers to return to their rooms. On any other night, they'd have started a "Fortnite" video game battle to unwind.
