  • March Madness: Kansas narrowly avoids upset to earn another shot at Final Four

He began recruiting players from the Chicago area, and it eventually paid off with the current roster, which includes a handful of players who have contributed to the Ramblers' improbable march to Sunday's South Region final against Kansas State.

There were those other Wildcats from Kentucky, which Kansas State sent home; the comeback kids from Nevada and of course the feel-good story of the tournament, Loyola-Chicago. The Cinderella Ramblers are one win away from the first Final Four since'63 and the players have a sense of urgency in not only what is at stake, but the reach of their brilliance.

Texas Tech is headed to the Elite Eight for the first time in program history.

The Lowdown: History will be made on Saturday. They were denied what would have been their first Elite Eight berth since 2000. He entered the season on the hot seat after six straight seasons without even making the NCAA Tournament. And incredible. Its unpredictability keeps it extraordinary every year. Now she's celebrating her own busted bracket.

Kansas State 58, Loyola-Chicago 54.

Numerous students said they could pinpoint the moment their interest went from simply supporting their school to being super fans: Donte Ingram's three-point dagger in the Ramblers' 64-62 win against Miami in the opening round of the NCAA basketball tournament. His initial laments about being placed in a tough region wound up coming back to haunt, as United Kingdom was done in by a similar breed of cat. What's worse, Kentucky shot 23-for-37 from the foul line.

Calipari's experienced that in the NCAA Tournament before.

Kansas State finished fourth in the surging Big 12 conference, with a 21-10 overall record and a 10-8 mark in league games.

PM Modi congratulates Angela Merkel on her re-election
Merkel, a Russian speaker, has had a hard but engaged relationship with Putin during her more than 12 years in office. Seehofer sparked a furor last week when he told the Bild newspaper that "Islam does not belong in Germany".

Kansas State embraces the grind maybe better than anyone in the nation as Bruce Weber's Wildcats claw, scrap, dive, deflect, snatch, and well - grind. Go where you are wanted and needed.

For tonight's game, the Odds Shark point spread consensus now has the Kansas State Wildcats favored by just a point. The Wildcats haven't defeated any of the remaining three Big 12 teams in the tournament (Kansas, Texas Tech, West Virginia), but that doesn't matter now.

Jerry Harkness, the leader of that team, watched this game from the front row with several of his former teammates who were part of another strong and loud Loyola crowd. Then it played UMBC and had the world rooting against it. The Bulldogs slipped out of the state and defied racist politicians and played the Ramblers in the Sweet 16 in 1963.

But here it is.

The mold will feature her maroon and gold scarf and matching sneakers, a black blazer with Loyola's logo, a basketball in her hands and a base marked with the words "Loyola Chicago" and "Sister Jean".

"I think they're kind of pulling for us, just because of our relationship". Tennessee's Jordan Bone was able to catch the ball near midcourt, take three dribbles and attempt a 3-pointer before the final buzzer sounded.

Shanks doesn't play a lot - he averages 2.6 minutes per game and less than a point - but he embraces a leadership role as "the old guy on the team".

A pattern has taken grip, yet we're still getting something unprecedented. "Watching the tournament this year, made me realize even more that I made it D-I because I'm rooting for a team that is playing in the Sweet Sixteen". Here are today's two Elite Eight matchups. Now it's Ramblers vs. Wildcats for a trip to the Final Four. They were rewarded with an inspiring effort that extended Loyola's March run as America's team, with its adorable team chaplain and indefatigable coach. Having all this, I mean, it's a pretty big time thing and we're trying to soak it all in.
