    No. 6 seed Texas beats No. 11 seed Virginia Tech, 81-73, for first NCAA Tournament win since 2014

    [​IMG]

    Exactly six years after losing to the Northern Iowa Panthers on a half-court heave, the No. 6 Texas Longhorns took some serious momentum into halftime when senior guard Marcus Carr banked in a shot from well beyond the half-court line.

    “The end of the first half is always critical for any team,” head coach Chris Beard said.

    In that moment, in making a shot that Carr said he practices nearly every time he’s in the gym, all the demons from the eight years between NCAA Tournament wins for the Longhorns seemed to dissipate and Beard’s team dominated in the second half for an 81-73 win over the No. 11 seed Virginia Tech Hokies in Milwaukee on Friday, the first win in the Big Dance since 2014.

    Martin, Kansas hold off Creighton 79-72 for another Sweet 16



    Remy Martin hadn't led Kansas in scoring all season coming into the NCAA Tournament.

    The fifth-year senior transfer from Arizona State is 2 for 2 on the big stage.

    Martin scored 20 points, Ochai Agbaji put the Jayhawks ahead for good with his first basket early in the second half, and Kansas held off Creighton 79-72 on Saturday to advance to the Sweet 16.

    Martin scores 23, top-seeded Kansas beats Providence 66-61



    Kansas' Jalen Wilson noticed the excitement on the other side.

    The top-seeded Jayhawks went from leading by 13 in the second half to trailing Providence by a point with their season in danger of slipping away.

    But the only No. 1 seed left in the NCAA Tournament responded to that brief challenge, stood firm and closed out a 66-61 victory on Friday night to reach the Elite Eight.
