Loyola-Chicago leads Tennessee at half

The Latest on the second round of the NCAA Tournament (all times Eastern):

7:10 p.m.

Sister Jean's prayers are working again so far.


Kentucky stops Buffalo, back in Sweet 16

BOISE, Idaho (AP) Kentucky put an end to any upset talk on its watch Saturday, getting 27 points and a near-perfect shooting game from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in a 95-75 pullaway from 13th-seeded Buffalo.

Gilgeous-Alexander went 10 for 12 and made both of his 3-point attempts to send fifth-seeded Kentucky (26-10) to the Sweet 16 for the second straight season.


Bridges leads 3-happy 'Nova to Sweet 16

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jay Wright had some late-night restlessness because he could not turn off the TV as long as Virginia and UMBC were still playing. He met his Villanova team in the morning and the players at the breakfast tables were buzzing over basketball's biggest upset.

The reverberation from the 16-over-1 stunner was felt by another tourney top seed.


Duke freshmen power rout of Rhode Island

PITTSBURGH (AP) The same message comes from Mike Krzyzewski almost daily. While the Hall-of-Fame Duke coach makes an effort to mix it up when talking to his ridiculously young and ridiculously loaded team, the theme never changes.

This moment in the NCAA Tournament is precious. Don't take it for granted. Especially if it turns out to be the only one you'll get.


Purdue not yet ruling Hass out for NCAAs

DETROIT (AP) A day after Isaac Haas' season was declared over, there's now a bit of mystery surrounding the status of Purdue's star center.

That could be encouraging news for the second-seeded Boilermakers, who announced Friday that Haas would miss the rest of the NCAA Tournament with a broken elbow. On Saturday, a CBS reporter tweeted that Haas had practiced with the team, although coach Matt Painter tried to keep expectations low for a possible return.


UMBC basking in 15 minutes of NCAA fame

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) As the sun rose on the Saturday morning celebration of their unprecedented NCAA Tournament upset, Ryan Odom implored his suddenly-famous basketball team to get some sleep.

It was time for family and friends of UMBC to leave the hotel and for the Retrievers to return to their rooms. On any other night, they'd have started a "Fortnite" video game battle to unwind.


Rivalries highlight East Region matchups

SAN DIEGO (AP) The East Region bracket is serving up two in-state rivalries on Sunday, one testy and complicated and the other one much less so.

In a Hoosier State showdown, No. 2 seed Purdue (29-6) faces No. 10 Butler (21-13) in Detroit.


Xavier-FSU set for tourney rematch

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Dwayne Bacon, Jonathan Isaac and Xavier Rathan-Mayes all are gone, the first two drafted into the NBA. Florida State has only one starter back from a year ago when the Seminoles' expected run through the NCAA Tournament came to a stunning and ugly end so much earlier than expected.

Now the Seminoles are in a second-round rematch against the same team that put an absolute beatdown on them - in the same West Region no less.


Carr leads Penn State past Irish in NIT

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Tony Carr scored 24 points to extend his Penn State sophomore scoring record, Josh Reaves had 18 points and nine rebounds and the Nittany Lions beat Notre Dame 73-63 on Saturday in the second round of the NIT.

Penn State scored the first two points of the game and never trailed as Notre Dame didn't hit its first field goal until nearly five minutes in. Shep Garner sank a wide open 3-pointer from the corner to close the third-quarter scoring for a 50-36 lead. Carr sealed it with 1:25 left in the fourth by dribbling down the clock, going through his legs and sinking a step-back 3-pointer to make it 70-59.


South in chaos without Virginia, Arizona

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) First Buffalo sent No. 4 seed Arizona packing. Then Maryland Baltimore County dispatched of No. 1 seed Virginia in the biggest surprise of all.

Consider the South Region officially up for grabs.
