Here are three takeaways from its run to the national semifinals. He was 0-7 from beyond the arc. About the only misstep before the first TV timeout, with MI on top by 10-4, came when Zavier Simpson comically threw up an unanswered prayer of a 3-point attempt over the elongated arm of Christ Koumadje, who is 16 inches taller. MI also outscored FSU 28-20 in the paint.

Zavier Simpson's play in this one can't go unnoticed. "Even when things do not go right on the offensive end, they were exceptional on defense". Standard operating procedure there is to foul the other team, hope they miss a free throw or two, then come down and get a quick score at the other end.

A wild segment gave FSU momentum as the Seminoles got away with a goaltending call and Wagner was whistled for a crucial blocking foul, his fourth of the game.

Another key moment was Duncan Robinson's late three point shot to put MI up 10.

Meanwhile, Michigan will enter the game as the betting favorite and as the prohibitive enemy, outside of Ann Arbor. The strategy worked well as MI faltered from the stripe and FSU scored five straight.

P.J. Savoy's 3-pointer made it a one-possession game with 1:17 remaining. After Hamilton's FSU team lost to MI in the Elite 8, Jacobson simply asked Hamilton the question everyone in America was asking: "Why didn't you foul with 11 seconds left on the clock?"

Extending its winning streak to 14 games, Loyola enjoyed strong shooting against a Kansas State team which relied on strong defense in the NCAA Tournament.

The Ramblers took a big lead of 23 points in the first matchup of No. 11 and No. 9 seeds in a regional final. The Ramblers are averaging 7.5 three-pointers per game on 40.0 shooting from beyond the arc.

The 6-foot-8 forward, who averaged 12.8 points, missed most of the 2015-16 season due to a foot injury.

"Tonight I thought MI was a little bit better than we were for an eight, nine- or 10-minute period, and it was very hard for us to overcome that".

The Florida State Seminoles had an improbable run to the Elite Eight as a 9 seed in the West Region.

The exchange begins around the 4 minute mark in the video below.

The first half wasn't pretty, and MI took a 27-26 lead into the break despite failing to get a field goal in the final 5:45. Abdur-Rahkman answered with a contested triple, breaking a cold streak from long range, before Matthews regained the lead, 24-23, on a pair of freebies.

They knew now that their ninth-seeded heroes would not make it to their first Final Four since 1972.

Robinson hit both free throws, pushing Michigan's advantage back to 56-54.
