NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship
It’s a rare opportunity for Loyola University Maryland. The men’s basketball team will soon play in Pittsburgh. It’s the first NCAA Tournament for the Greyhounds in nearly two decades, and they want to make it last beyond Thursday night.
Ohio State has four sophomore starters and one bad NCAA tournament memory. A No. 2 seed this year, Ohio State starts a run at a 10th Final Four when it plays 15th-seeded Loyola (Md.) on Thursday night in the second round of the East Regional.
The men’s basketball team at Loyola University Maryland is going to the big dance. We’re talking NCAA!
Goodbye to Garyland. After more than two decades as the top Terp, University of Maryland men’s basketball coach Gary Williams is retiring.
In the days leading up to Maryland’s first NCAA tournament appearance in two years, coach Brenda Frese wondered how her young team would react to the pressure of a lose-and-go-home situation. She couldn’t have been more delighted with the answer. The Terrapins scored the game’s first 13 points, led by 23 at halftime and cruised to an opening-round 70-48 victory over St. Francis (Pa.) on Sunday.
Playing in the NCAA tournament for a second straight year, St. Francis (Pa.) has a distinct advantage over Maryland in terms of postseason experience.
