NIT-TCU-IOWA

TCU advances to NIT quarters with 94-92 OT win over Iowa

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Alex Robinson and Vladimir Brodziansky each scored 19 points and TCU survived 94-92 in overtime against Number 1 seeded Iowa on Sunday to advance to the NIT quarterfinals.

TCU was playing without starting guard Jaylen Fisher, who broke his wrist and is out for the season.

The Horned Frogs (21-15) led 84-82 in the final seconds when Iowa's Tyler Cook finished a layup to tie it and send the game to overtime.

TCU never trailed in the extra period, and a Kenrich Williams dunk with 3:02 left gave the Horned Frogs an 88-86 lead they held the rest of the way. TCU built a six-point lead with 24 seconds left. A Jordan Bohannon 3 for Iowa trimmed the lead to two (94-92), but the Hawkeyes ran out of time.

The Horned Frogs (21-15) will host the Oakland-Richmond winner Tuesday for a spot in the NIT final four.

Bohannon had a career-high 25 points for Iowa (19-15) and hit seven 3-pointers. Peter Jok added 22 in his final game as a Hawkeye.

The win is TCU's first ever against Iowa and the first meeting between the schools since 1948.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Josh Jackson scored 14 of his 23 points in the second half to help Kansas pull away late and reach the Sweet 16 for a second straight year with a 90-70 victory over Michigan State on Sunday.

Frank Mason the Third added 20 points for the top-seeded Jayhawks (30-4), who have advanced to the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament in nine of coach Bill Self's 14 seasons.

Devonte' Graham added 18 points and Landen Lucas had 10 for the Jayhawks, who shot 53.1 percent (34 of 64) in the win.

Miles Bridges scored 22 points to lead Michigan State (20-15) despite leaving briefly in the first half with an injury. Nick Ward also finished in double figures with 13 points and Joshua Langford had 10 for the Spartans.

NCAA-WICHITA STATE-KENTUCKY

Kentucky's kids rally for 65-62 win over Wichita State

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Bam Adebayo had a double-double and swatted away the final shot on Sunday as Kentucky sent Wichita State to yet another second-round heartbreak, 65-62 in the South region.

The youngest team in the NCAA Tournament grew up in the closing minutes.

Adebayo had 13 points and 10 rebounds. De'Aaron Fox had 14 points, including a late steal and dunk. Malik Monk blocked a shot and made a pair of free throws in the final 13 seconds. Adebayo clinched it by blocking Landry Shamet's 3-pointer shot at the buzzer.

Yes, Kentucky's freshman trio did it all.

Wham, Bam, move on 'Cats (31-5), right into the Sweet 16 for the seventh time in nine years.

And wipe tears away again, Shockers (31-5).

NCAA-WICHITA ST-COACH'S WIFE

Marshall's wife escorted out of arena after Shockers loss

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A security guard asked the wife of Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall to leave the lower bowl of Bankers Life Fieldhouse after she started loudly cursing shortly after Sunday's 65-62 loss to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament.

A police officer was eventually called and followed Lynn Marshall up the steps. She later was taken back to the playing level on an elevator so she could attend her husband's news conference.

NCAA spokesman David Worlock says it is standard procedure for the wife of a coach to be escorted to the press conference but it is usually done by school officials.

Lynn Marshall remained in the stands about 10 minutes after the final buzzer. She at first consoled fans and family members of the team's players. But then she started shouting loudly about the calls made during the game. Eventually, the people around coaxed her to leave and the police officer followed.

Team spokesman Bryan Holmgren said the team was unaware of the situation and could not comment.

BKW-NCAA-MISSOURI-FLORIDA-STATE

Florida State beats Missouri to reach Sweet 16

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Shakayla Thomas scored 20 points and third-seeded Florida State advanced to the Sweet 16 for the third straight season with a 77-55 victory over Number 6 seed Missouri Sunday.

Thomas, who also had 11 rebounds, was one of four Seminoles in double figures. Brittany Brown added 16 points while Imani Wright and Leticia Romero each scored 14.

Florida State (27-6) will face either second-seeded Oregon State or No. 7 seed Creighton in a regional semifinal game in Stockton, California on Saturday.

Missouri (22-11) led 17-12 22 seconds into the second quarter on a Jordan Chavis 3-pointer before Florida State took the lead for good with a 17-2 run as Romero scored six points.

The Seminoles led 32-27 at halftime but put the game out of reach by scoring the first eight points of the third quarter.

CLARKSON-WISCONSIN

Clarkson blanks Wisconsin, 3-0 for NCAA women's hockey title

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - Cayley Mercer scored two goals and Shea Tiley recorded a shutout as Clarkson captured the NCAA women's hockey National Championship with a 3-0 win over Wisconsin Sunday.

Mercer, one of five seniors, played on Clarkson's first national championship team in 2014.

Tiley was brilliant in net for the Knights, making 41 saves and limiting second-chance opportunities by the Badgers.

Wisconsin (33-3-4) lost in the semifinals in each of the last three seasons and was ranked No.1 in the nation all season. The Badgers beat Clarkson twice this season at Potsdam, N.Y.

Clarkson (32-4-5) opened the second period on the power play and Savannah Harmon made the Badgers pay 27 seconds in. Wisconsin goalkeeper Ann-Renee Desbiens stopped shots by Ella Shelton and Genevieve Bannon. After clearing the puck from behind the Wisconsin net, Bannon flicked a pass in front of the goal and Harmon deflected it past Desbiens.

Mercer scored in the third period on a breakaway and added an empty-net goal in the final minute.
