Did Leonard Hamilton Get Confused Last Night?

Kansas' Lagerald Vick celebrates after hitting a 3-point basket as Clemson's Anthony Oliver II watches during the first half of a regional semifinal game in the NCAA men's college basketball tournament Friday Did Leonard Hamilton Get Confused Last Night?

But it probably would have been best to just give his cordial "Michigan played really well" response first rather than getting defensive.

Wolverines forward Isaiah Livers knows one of Loyola's players, having played AAU basketball against each other in Chicago.

Sister Dolores Jean Schmidt, the 98-year-old team nun and chaplain for Loyola-Chicago, is The Fairy Godmother - and face - of the 2018 NCAA tourney, the wind beneath Cinderella's wings. No, it was not as awe-inspiring as their Sweet 16 rout of Texas A&M, but it better defined the Wolverines. Clayton Cluster is the team's leading scorer at 13.2 points per game, but five players average double figures - and that doesn't include senior Ben Richardson, who had 23 points to lead the team in its Elite Eight win vs. Kansas State. Gone were the wide-open shots that obliterated Texas A&M's zone defense Thursday.

FSU cut the lead to 45-42 with 6:00 left after four consecutive free throws.

Florida State: The loss ended an incredible run for coach Leonard Hamilton's Seminoles, who hit their stride at the flawless time.

LEONARD HAMILTON: Well, I believe it was about - I don't remember exactly, but I want to say that it was a four-point game.

Those fans were not here. Duke needed to hold on against No. 11-seeded Syracuse in a 69-65 win, although the Blue Devils' victory was impressive considering they shot nearly 10 percent worse from the field.

The Seminoles were down four points at the time.

FSU went on a 9-2 run capped by a traditional three-point play from Phil Cofer before U-M regained its footing. The team that faced Florida State looked nothing like the one that tore the Aggies apart for 62 percent shooting overall and 114 for 24 (58.3 percent) from behind the arc.

United States politicians approve huge spending bill to avoid shutdown
While calling it a "ridiculous situation", Trump said the spending plan was important because it increases money for the military. A presidential veto would likely result in a government shutdown when most federal funding authority expires at midnight Friday.

Hamilton would get a $275,000 bonus if Florida State defeats MI.

- Robinson misses the first free throw and makes the second to give MI a five-point lead. But four for 17 (23.5 percent) from behind the three-point line was too much to overcome even if MI (4 of 22, 18.2 percent) was worse.

Duncan Robinson capped the key run with a 3-pointer from the right corner with 2:22 left that gave MI a 54-44 lead.

Using a 9-0 run late in the game, Wolverines edged the Seminoles at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Florida State's bench was largely responsible for the mini-comeback in the second half. A series of MI mistakes - going 2 for 5 from the foul line, including missing a pair of front ends of one-and-ones, and fouling Florida State's P.J. Savoy while taking a 3-pointer - allowed the Seminoles to get within three after Savoy made a 3-pointer with 67 seconds remaining.

MI didn't shoot well, especially from 3-point range.

The University of MI men's basketball team set a single-season school record with its 32nd win and advanced to its eighth Final Four as the third-seeded Wolverines won a defensive gem over No. 9 seed Florida State by a score of 58-54 Saturday night (March 24) at the Staples Center.

MI is headed to its first Final Four in five years with another upset-minded opponent waiting.

And Michigan managed to do so in a way no one anticipated.
