Loyola Chicago, Michigan heading to Final Four

Fifty-two out of 68 teams are done including North Carolina the defending NCAA champions and the University of Virginia this

If P.J. Savoy makes his three-pointer on the other end, suddenly it's a one-point game with 29 seconds left, and MI is going back to the line for two more pressure foul shots.

The third-seeded Wolverines and ninth-seeded Seminoles have combined for 24 turnovers in 30 minutes, and neither is shooting above 36 percent. Michigan's biggest lead was 10 points with 2:21 left in the second half, but the Seminoles scored the next seven points and had a chance to tie it.

On the other side of the floor, MI is 60% from the floor, and have had the better defense in the early going, although FSU has tightened things up on D from the early going. There were the accusations that were levied at Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo that he covered up sexual assaults committed by players within his program. The Seminoles shot 31.4 percent, just 23.5 percent (4 of 17) from deep.

Michigan: Sister Jean awaits in San Antonio.

So Jacobson opened the postgame interview by asking Hamilton why he didn't foul in the closing seconds.

It's simply inexplicable that Florida State didn't foul. But in the end, Michigan's run early in the second half gave the Wolverines some breathing room as FSU struggled to score.

Coach Leonard Hamilton's surprising Seminoles are trying to reach just the second Final Four in their school's history.

He received a $200,000 bonus when the Seminoles made the 68-team field and an additional $50,000 for consecutive appearances. The 3rd-seeded Wolverines have been a regular participant in the NCAA Tournament in recent years, and are looking to make their first title game since 2013, the year they were the runner-up.

The Seminoles were struggling to get off even poor shots, as the MI defense swarmed around the paint and the free-throw line. Loyola's best win came at Florida, and the team has won 14 games in a row. Leading the way for the Ramblers was Ben Richardson who had 23 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists. He made two to make it a four-point spread.

The hard-charging Crown Prince Salman, heir to the Saudi throne, noted that the US and Saudi Arabia have been allies for 80 years. Trump urged Prince Mohammed to settle the festering battle that pits Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates against Qatar .

MI got through the South Regional to reach its first Final Four in five years and eighth time in program history. Donte Ingram added 12 points and had a team-high eight rebounds for the Ramblers.

As the No. 11 seed, Loyola matches the lowest seed to play in the Final Four.

But this isn't any ordinary 11 seed.

Loyola-Chicago is blowing away expectations that its Elite Eight matchup with Kansas State would be a close game.

Leonard Hamilton didn't want to address why he opted not to foul at the end of Saturday's game.

. The Ramblers are averaging 7.5 three-pointers per game on 40.0 shooting from beyond the arc. You couldn't be sure who would win, but you could be sure neither team would score 99 as MI did against Texas A&M.

For Loyola's Sweet 16 win over Nevada on Thursday night, Jerry Harkness, the captain of the '63 team, and three of his teammates had front-row seats across the court from the Ramblers.

Time to punch the first two tickets to the Final Four.
