The wife of Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall was escorted out of the stands of Bankers Life Fieldhouse by a security guard following the Shockers' 65-62 loss to Kentucky on Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

This matchup will be the second time ever that two teams with more than 30 wins in the regular-season will play in the first weekend of the tournament.

Kentucky and Wichita State meeting with a Sweet 16 spot in Memphis on the line.

Adebayo's block was pivotal, but so was his point production in a game that featured five ties and 11 lead changes, not to mention several tense moments in the final five minutes.

The Shockers end another special season a few points short against college basketball's Big Blue empire. Coming into their game on Sunday against the Kentucky Wildcats in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, Willis said that he and the Shockers were going to "shut down" star freshman Bam Adebayo, in reference to his rebounding (per KSTV). Kentucky center Bam Adebayo followed Shamet and tipped the ball as it left Shamet's hand with two seconds on the clock.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Tyler Dorsey hit a contested go-ahead 3-pointer from the top of the arc with 38.4 seconds to play, E.C. Matthews airballed a long 3 in the waning moments trying to force overtime, and third-seeded OR rallied in the second half to beat upstart No. 11 Rhode Island on Sunday and reach the Midwest Regional. They never allowed Wichita to lead by more than four points. A Fox pullup gave Kentucky the lead at the 11:27 mark, and Isaiah Briscoe's 3-pointer a minute later made it 11-6.

The Bruins will face No. 2 seed Kentucky in the South Regional semifinals Friday in Memphis.

Monk put Kentucky up five again with a 3-pointer. He finished with 13 points and 10 boards.

Derek Willis had nine points and eight rebounds.

United Kingdom would lead at the half 26-24.

"It's great to have Malik back", the Kentucky coach said. Kentucky carries a 13-game winning streak into the second leg of the prestigious event and could possibly face a rematch against the Bruins, who defeated the Wildcats 97-92 on December 3 in Lexington.

Daryl Macon scored 19 points to lead the eighth-seeded Razorbacks (26-10), who did everything right in the second half - except close out the Tar Heels. Adebayo and Fox each knocked down a free throw to increased the Kentucky advantage to 56-51 with 4:23 to go. "This will just be more fuel for us". "And all we do is tell our guys to keep fighting, we'll find a way to win". If we expect the student-athletes to be "model citizens", maybe we should take a hard look at those adults screaming at them who should know better. "So that will be our goal next year".
