DETROIT (AP) The last team selected for the field of 68 is going to the round of 16.

Tyus Battle had 17 points and Oshae Brissett scored 15, lifting 11th-seeded Syracuse to a 55-53 win over third-seeded Michigan State on Sunday and into the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16.

Cassius Winston missed an opportunity to win the game for the Spartans with a shot from about 45 feet just before the buzzer. The Spartans, flummoxed by Syracuse's 2-3 zone, didn't make a basket in the last 5:41.

Purdue wins sans Haas, holds off Butler

DETROIT (AP) Without Isaac Haas, Purdue played fine for the most part.

Until the last few minutes, when the Boilermakers' season nearly slipped away.


Is UMBC ready for another shocker?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Ramblers are moving on. Are the Retrievers ready to run with them to the Sweet 16?

Loyola-Chicago kept its feel-good story going with a one-point win over third-seeded Tennessee in the second round Saturday as the little guys kept making more noise in the NCAA Tournament. The victory allowed 11th-seeded Loyola-Chicago to keep pace with the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, a commuter school in Baltimore which - before Friday night - was best known as a master of the game of chess by those who actually knew of the school.


Many NBA prospects already out of NCAAs

Many of the freshman stars who garnered so much of the college basketball world's attention during the regular season have already been bounced from March Madness.

Arizona's Deandre Ayton, Oklahoma's Trae Young, Missouri's Michael Porter Jr., Alabama's Collin Sexton and Texas' Mohamed Bamba are all considered potential NBA lottery picks whenever they decide to turn pro. They're also all out of the NCAA Tournament after facing the harsh reality that sometimes individual talent isn't enough in March.


Loyola savoring berth in Sweet 16

DALLAS (AP) Porter Moser wants his Loyola-Chicago players to savor every moment of the NCAA Tournament. It took the Ramblers a long time, and last-moment shots in consecutive games, to go from what he termed a "grassroots rebuild" to the Sweet 16.

"It's amazing when you have a group of people who believe," Moser said. "I mean, just this group is resilient. They believe."


Michigan advances on Poole's 3 at :00

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The unflappable freshman with swag to spare let loose a long 3-pointer just as the buzzer sounded, watched it splash through the net and took off on a dead sprint around the arena.

"I saw everybody celebrating," Michigan's Jordan Poole said later, "and I always thought if I hit a shot like that, I didn't want to get tackled. So I tried to avoid everybody."


Kentucky stops Buffalo, back in Sweet 16

BOISE, Idaho (AP) It'll take more than experience, grit and a double-digit dream to knock these kids from Kentucky out of the NCAA Tournament.

Namely, it'll take someone to slow down Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and his fellow freshmen, who are zeroing in on the finer points of the John Calipari Hoop School at precisely the right time.


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.
