    Iowa keeps Big Ten perfect, rallies 79-72 over Cincinnati

    Iowa kept up the Big Ten's blitz through its first six games in the NCAA Tournament.

    Luka Garza scored 20 points, Jordan Bohannon made a three-point play during the Hawkeyes' closing surge and the No. 10 seed in the South Region kept its league unblemished a while longer by rallying for a 79-72 victory over No. 7 seed Cincinnati on Friday.

    Spartans rout Gophers, return to Sweet 16 1st time since '15


    Michigan State doesn't just hope to get to the Sweet 16 each year. It expects it.

    The Spartans played with that attitude, and then some, rolling past Minnesota 70-50 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday night to advance to the regional semifinals for the first time since 2015.

    Michigan returning to Sweet 16 after toppling Florida 64-49

    Michigan's biggest concern against Florida was facing the Gators' lockdown defense.

    The solution? Beat Florida at its own game.

    Michigan is back in the Sweet 16 for the third consecutive year after pulling away for a 64-49 win in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday. The Wolverines held Florida to its lowest point total of the season.

    Purdue holds off Tennessee 99-94 in OT

    Down two to Tennessee with 2.7 seconds left, Purdue narrowly avoided a 5-second call before Carsen Edwards took a pass in the corner and heaved up a 3-point attempt that bounced off the rim.

    But a whistle gave Edwards and the Boilermakers a reprieve.

    Lamonte' Turner bumped into Edwards after he released the shot and the Big Ten's leading scorer went to the line for three free throws with 1.7 seconds left. Edwards missed the first, steadied himself, and knock down the next two to force overtime. Given a second chance to put away the Volunteers, the Boilermakers got it done.

    Edwards finished with 29 points as Purdue advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2000, beating Tennessee 99-94 on Thursday night after blowing an 18-point lead.

    Freshmen lead Michigan State past LSU and into Elite Eight

    Matt McQuaid could not believe LSU was giving Michigan State freshmen Aaron Henry and Gabe Brown so much room at the 3-point line.

    "They were like 3 or 4 feet off Gabe on that one 3," McQuaid said. "I was like, `Dang, do they know he can shoot?"

    Henry scored a career-best 20 and Brown had a career-high 15 as the second-seeded Spartans beat third-seeded LSU 80-63 on Friday night to move on to the NCAA Tournament's East Region final. Coach Tom Izzo's upperclassman-heavy team is one victory against Duke away from its first Final Four appearance since 2015 -- and the freshmen led the way.

    Michigan State knocks off Duke 68-67 to make Final Four

    Cassius Winston missed an open jump shot but was right there for the rebound. Without hesitating, he stepped back and swished a 3-pointer.

    "Now is not the time to doubt yourself," Winston said. "Now's not the time to shy away from those big moments."

    The biggest moment for Michigan State is still to come after Winston led the Spartans back to the Final Four for the first time since 2015.

    Michigan State beat Duke 68-67 on Sunday to knock the overall top seed out of the NCAA Tournament in what likely was the end of Zion Williamson's college career. Winston took over the game when his team faced its biggest deficit, stealing the show from Williamson with 20 points and 10 assists in a do-it-all performance fittingly with Magic Johnson there to see it.

    Howard returns to Michigan as new hoops coach



    Miami Heat assistant and former Michigan star Juwan Howard has been named the new head coach of the Wolverines, the university announced Wednesday.

    Howard received a five-year deal, starting at $2 million annually, Michigan said.
