Nevada completes 22-point comeback, beats Cincinnati — March Madness

March Madness How To Watch Stream Nevada vs. Cincinnati

March Madness How To Watch Stream Nevada vs. Cincinnati

Nevada's only previous regional semifinal appearance came in 2004. On Friday, Nevada rallied from 14 points behind in the second half to down to Texas in a first-round game before rallying to win 87-83 in overtime.

Said Musselman of the scene in the locker room: "I've never seen anything like it in my life". It's the happiest I've ever been in my life. Instead, they couldn't buy a three-point shot, struggled to rebound against a bigger team and offered little more than a meager resistance as the Aggies played with aggressive confidence. The Bearcats also failed to make a single basket in the final 5 minutes, 45 seconds.

Cincinnati forward Gary Clark, the American Athletic Conference player of the year, calmly answered questions for several minutes and blamed himself for not getting the rebound that decided the game. "'You can't hide. We've got to compete". "It could have gotten my team over the hump".

Cincinnati never got off a shot before the buzzer. Television cameras caught Musselman taking off his shirt as he headed into a boisterous locker-room celebration.

Jacob Evans scored 19 points to lead Cincinnati. But Syracuse shutting down Michigan State certainly gets some eyes as well. "They gambled and just started trapping at halfcourt, gave us a lot of wide-open shots that we didn't make".

The Orange were led by Tyus Battle's 17 points and won for the third time in five days to secure an improbable Sweet 16 matchup against second-seeded Duke.

There were no style points to be found on Sunday at Spectrum Center - just survival.

The Bighorns organization will continue to offer a $7 ticket special at the box office along with a Sweet $16 ticket special featuring a ticket to the night's contest and a food voucher good for any concession at the Reno Events Center.

Barry Brown scored 18 points and Xavier Sneed made key plays down the stretch as the Wildcats ended the Retrievers' Cinderella run in Charlotte, N.C. They are seeded ninth and will face Kentucky on Thursday in Atlanta. The Tar Heels (26-11) dropped to 34-2 in NCAA Tournament games in their home state. He finished with eight points and seven rebounds.

That's an all-timer. He was ready.

The end result? Nevada is dancing to the Sweet 16 and Cincinnati earned the right to feel the same embarrassment that Virginia felt in the first round. Caleb's three-pointer tied the score at 73 with 54 seconds left.

The Bearcats defeated Georgia State in the first round, while the Wolfpack beat Texas in Round 1.

Ajdin Penava paced Marshall (25-11) with 18 points, six rebounds and six assists.
