The Latest on the second round of the NCAA Tournament (all times Eastern):

1:15 p.m.

Purdue redshirt freshman Matt Haarms made the most of his opportunity to fill in for Isaac Haas, scoring 7 points and grabbing five rebounds in 17 minutes to help third-seeded Purdue lead 10th-seeded Butler 40-36 at halftime Sunday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.


Is UMBC ready for another shocker?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Ramblers are moving on. Are the Retrievers ready to run with them to the Sweet 16?

Loyola-Chicago kept its feel-good story going with a one-point win over third-seeded Tennessee in the second round Saturday as the little guys kept making more noise in the NCAA Tournament. The victory allowed 11th-seeded Loyola-Chicago to keep pace with the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, a commuter school in Baltimore which - before Friday night - was best known as a master of the game of chess by those who actually knew of the school.


Custer shot at 3.6 lifts 11 seed Loyola

DALLAS (AP) Loyola-Chicago's Sweet 16 dreams bounced on the front of the rim, lightly touched the backboard, and rattled a couple times before slipping through the net.

Another prayer answered in the waning seconds, and now Sister Jean's Ramblers are heading to Atlanta.


Michigan advances on Poole's 3 at :00

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) The unflappable freshman with swag to spare let loose a long 3-pointer just as the buzzer sounded, watched it splash through the net and took off on a dead sprint around the arena.

"I saw everybody celebrating," Michigan's Jordan Poole said later, "and I always thought if I hit a shot like that, I didn't want to get tackled. So I tried to avoid everybody."


Kentucky stops Buffalo, back in Sweet 16

Gonzaga reaches fourth straight Sweet 16

BOISE, Idaho (AP) Zach Norvell Jr. pulled up for 3-pointers, drove fearlessly to the rim and bulled his way into the trees to snare rebounds.

A spectator during Gonzaga's Final Four run a year ago, the confident, extroverted freshman could be the ticket for a return trip.


Newman's 28 lead Kansas back to Sweet 16

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Udoka Azubuike had practiced once in the last 11 days because of a lingering knee injury, and the mammoth Kansas forward's three-minute stretch in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament was about as underwhelming as his herky-jerky free-throw stroke.

He managed to go 22 minutes against Seton Hall on Saturday night.


Evans' 3 pushes Texas Tech into Sweet 16

DALLAS (AP) Keenan Evans keeps making big plays, extending Texas Tech's season - and his time with second-year head coach Chris Beard.

They have another game with the Red Raiders headed to the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16 for the first time since 2005.


Bridges leads 3-happy 'Nova to Sweet 16

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jay Wright had some late-night restlessness because he could not turn off the TV as long as Virginia and UMBC were still playing. He met his Villanova team in the morning and the players at the breakfast tables were buzzing over basketball's biggest upset.

The reverberation from the 16-over-1 stunner was felt by another tourney top seed.


Duke freshmen power rout of Rhode Island

PITTSBURGH (AP) The same message comes from Mike Krzyzewski almost daily. While the Hall-of-Fame Duke coach makes an effort to mix it up when talking to his ridiculously young and ridiculously loaded team, the theme never changes.

This moment in the NCAA Tournament is precious. Don't take it for granted. Especially if it turns out to be the only one you'll get.
