Alexander had started every game this season. The offense comes and goes, and that's usually okay because the defense is so impressive. "Most of the time the neutral crowds have always, when you think about it, they go for the underdog or the team that's wearing the darker jersey".
Speaking of last-second shots.
DALLAS (AP) - No. 3 seed Tennessee (26-8) vs. The Bruce Pearl era?
The first time Clayton Custer encountered Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt, it was during a team prayer.
When: Saturday, March 17, 2018, at 6:10 p.m. E.T.
Wright State (25-10) fell to 0-3 all-time in the NCAA Tournament.
DALLAS-Admiral Schofield had 15 points and 12 rebounds as the third-seeded Volunteers (26-8) advanced to the second round by overwhelming Wright State (25-10). In his 33 minutes off the bench, he also dished out nine of Tennessee's 13 total assists.
The last time Liberty allowed a team to score 100 points was in 1998, when the Lady Flames lost to Tennessee 102-58 in an NCAA Tournament game in Knoxville. Schofield said he liked Loyola but wanted to get away from frigid Chicago winters.
Schmidt, who played high school basketball in San Francisco in the 1930s, 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.
The fourth-seeded Bulldogs (31-4) trailed 64-62 with 1:48 left after squandering a 12-point lead they took early in the second half. The defense is especially solid against shots from 3-point range.
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.
Sister Jean has become so much more than a fan for the Ramblers as she often sends encouraging emails to the players and sometimes even constructive criticism.
Nothing was going to stop Sister Jean from being present in Texas this weekend for the Ramblers' first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1985.
Loyola is led by senior Donta Ingram who is the guy that ended Miami's tournament run. They both discussed the last play of the game and Loyola's game-winning shot to defeat the Miami Hurricanes.
Warning: Potential Spoilers The N.C.A.A. selection committee made their top picks for this year's tournament bracket with Xavier, Kansas, Villanova, and Virginia being picked as the four #1-seeded squads. Brodeur and Caleb Wood each scored 14 points for Penn (24-9).
The trendy pick is going to be Loyola and while they do have one upset under their belt and it is March so that anything can happen. However, Tennessee is no cupcake and a sleeper Final Four team themselves.
The sixth-seeded Houston team has had little success in the N.C.A.A. tournament - we might have to go back all the way to Elvin Hayes-led team or the Phi Slamma Jamma team led by Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon.
The team put out a video the other day telling the national media not to pick them for the tournament now because they didn't pick them in the preseason. Just to make it to the Big Dance I thought was a tremendous accomplishment.
