PSR Logo
Ohio edges South Florida; Michigan State and Kansas survice scares


Lorenzo Brown hit three free throws in the final 11 seconds and North Carolina State advanced to the Sweet 16 with a 66-63 upset of third-seeded Georgetown in a Midwest Regional on Sunday.


The Wolfpack (24-12) advance to play the Purdue-Kansas winner on Friday in St. Louis.


An 11th seed coming in, NC STate survived a furious comeback by the Hoyas (24-9) and only were assured of the win when Jason Clark's hurried 3-point attempt from the right wing was off the mark at the buzzer.


C.J. Williams, Scott Wood and C.J. Leslie each had 14 points, and Brown added 12 for the Wolfpack, who earned their first trip to the round of 16 since 2005.


Hollis Thompson led the Hoyas with 23 points.
