Ex-Wolves assistant Musselman rips off shirt after Nevada makes Sweet 16

Nevada erased a 22-point second-half deficit to beat Cincinnati. More

"Coach works out every morning, so his shirt comes off a lot", said Martin, who had 10 points and five rebounds.

Everything was set up for the Tar Heels to continue their ascent, from entering the tournament with 10 wins in 13 games to playing in their home-state where they had been practically unbeatable in NCAA games.

David Worlock, the NCAA's director of media coordination, noted this is the first time in NCAA tournament history that no top-four seed in the South Region made it to the second weekend.

They were down 22. The shot capped a game-ending 32-8 run for the Wolf Pack (29-7), who trailed 65-43 with 11:27 left.

Prior to the tournament, FiveThirtyEight gave Nevada a 40% likelihood of beating Texas in the round of 64, a 7% likelihood of advancing to the Sweet 16, a 3% likelihood of advancing to the Elite Eight, and a 0.5% likelihood of advancing to the Final Four. The Spartans (30-5) made just 25.8 percent of their field-goal attempts as their frustration mounted against Syracuse's zone. If Nevada beats No. 11 seed Loyola Chicago, it will either face No. 5 seed Kentucky or No. 9 seed Kansas State with a Final Four berth in the balance.

Bryce Brown and Mustapha Heron scored 12 points apiece for Auburn, which missed 18 consecutive shots in one stretch. The Retrievers finished six of 22 from 3-point range and nine of 18 from the free throw line.

Three minutes later, Caleb Martin's corner three-pointer with 53 seconds left tied it at 73. Cumberland added 17 points before fouling out, and Gary Clark (11 points and 10 rebounds) and Kyle Washington (10 points and 11 rebounds) each recorded double-doubles.

UMBC's scrappy defense forced 18 turnovers but managed just three points off those.
