Marshall ends 31-year NCAA drought with C-USA title


Williams didn't excuse his players from being exhausted.

UVA enters the tournament at 31-2 overall after winning this past weekend's ACC tournament.

Steve Wiseman says the specter of playing top-seeded Kansas in the second round could be on N.C. State's mind.

The Tar Heels, on the other hand, are at their best when they get offensive rebounds. "There's nobody that has more respect and admiration for the way another coach coaches than what I feel for Tony Bennett".

Third-seeded Tennessee (25-8) fell to Kentucky in the Sunday's Southeastern Conference Tournament final, but the Volunteers still earned their first NCAA bid since 2014 and open against 14th-seeded Wright State (25-9) in Dallas on Thursday. Then in 2015, they lost again to the Spartans - the same Spartans that would make a magical run to the Final Four. "They don't really have the type of players that are like household names or anything like that, but they just play really good together".

According to Syrian state media, Turkish troops control five out of the seven settlements in Afrin region, Reuters said.

North Carolina's Luke Maye made as many FG (5) and scored as many points (15) as the rest of his teammates combined in the 1st half. And there has only been one ACC title game without a North Carolina team in it.

Marvin Bagley III followed up his 33-point, 17-rebound game against Notre Dame on Thursday with 19 points and 13 rebounds for Duke.

Surprisingly, it was Virginia's methodically probing offense that doomed UNC.

Ayton, selected the tournament's most valuable player, shot 14 of 20 from the field and finished two rebounds short of a career high a day after scoring a career-high 34 points in a 78-67 overtime victory over UCLA in the semifinals.

Guy was named the tournament MVP, as he scored 16.7 points per game over three contests.

DeMarco Murray: Visiting Lions
Detroit finished last in the National Football League in rushing in 2017 for the second time in three years. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Sunday night that Murray is set to visit with the Detroit Lions on Monday.

You guys be sure and tell Coach Rob I said that. Though the Tar Heels knew what to expect, defending for 30 seconds takes a toll. So has Pittsburgh transfer Cameron Johnson. "Just as much as their defense is hard to play against, their offense has a funky pace to it as well". Georgia Tech and Maryland have had some nice runs as programs - Maryland even won a national title, and stepped up to be a rival with Duke during a time when Carolina was on a bit of a dip - but no one has been able to sustain.

Pinson lamented coming so close to a championship and losing - something he experienced in 2016's national title defeat to Villanova.

She wasn't done earning points this winter for a Tar Heels squad that finished fifth in the 15-team meet with 61 points.

Then Dunston, a senior from Powder Springs, Ga., received the baton and brought he Tar Heels right back to the lead pack by the end of her 53.47 400-meter leg. "I think they wait until they get exactly the shot they want, and that's the way they play". The Duke fans who remained at Barclays after watching their team win the earlier game had a blast watching the Tar Heels struggle. And Saturday proved that UNC has work left to do.

The chairman of the NCAA selection committee, Bruce Rasumussen, has said the investigations played no part of the bracket-filling process. Adding a neutral-court victory over Virginia to that list would only improve what is already the strongest collection of marquee wins of any team in the country.

Trae Young was getting into NCAA Tournament 'no matter what — ESPN analyst
He added that the Sooners were "playing in an extremely hard league", and "while there's no question they stumbled down the stretch. they had enough on their résumé to be in".
