WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Freshman guard Jordan Poole drained a long 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving third-seeded Michigan a heart-stopping 64-63 victory over Houston in the second-round of the NCAA Tournament.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Tinara Moore scored 25 points to help 11th-seed Central Michigan get its first women's NCAA Tournament win with a 78-69 victory over No. 6 LSU in the opening round.

DETROIT (AP) - Third-seeded Michigan State faces 11th-seeded Syracuse in the second round. The Spartans have a title-or-bust mentality and are shooting to survive the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in three years. The Orange will try to overcome playing their third game in five days in what will have the look and sound of a road game against a team playing its third game in 16 days. Syracuse brings just two players off the bench, barely. Michigan State has an 11-man rotation.
WACO, Texas (AP) - Michigan career scoring leader Katelynn Flaherty and her team face a big challenge to stay in the women's NCAA Tournament with a second-round game at Baylor. After three straight WNIT trips, including the WNIT title last season, the Wolverines are in their first NCAA Tournament since 2013. The Lady Bears are looking to sweep first- and second-round games at home for the sixth year in a row. They're trying to get to their 10th straight Sweet 16.
DETROIT (AP) - Purdue coach Matt Painter says injured center Isaac Haas is still unlikely to play, but there's now a bit of mystery surrounding his status. Painter said Haas ran a bit Saturday and probably will dress and go to warmups for Sunday's game against Butler. The Boilermakers had announced Friday that Haas would miss the rest of the NCAA Tournament with a broken elbow.
DETROIT (AP) - After an injury to center Isaac Haas, second-seeded Purdue takes on a familiar foe in 10th-seeded Butler in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Haas was ruled out for the season Friday, but it now appears that a return may not be completely out of the question. Purdue and Butler met earlier this season, with the Boilermakers winning that matchup of in-state rivals 82-67.
