Tournament interview gets awkward after coach is asked why he quit

Leonard Hamilton Leonard Hamilton fsu

The Ramblers have defeated Miami, Tennessee, Nevada, and Kansas State in their four tournament wins.

Hamilton: "You think that the game came down to the final seconds of the game?" The 11th-seeded Ramblers have been in the Final Four once before, back in 1963, and then went on to win the title that year.

The Cinderella Ramblers - an 11 seed - were the first team officially headed to San Antonio, getting by the No. 9 Wildcats 78-62 at Philips Arena in Atlanta.

Wagner added 12 points as the Wolverines (32-7) earned their 13th consecutive victory by persevering through a defense-dominated second half despite shooting 4-for-22 from 3-point range. The senior guard was quiet in his first three games of the tourney, however he has gone a combined 11 for 17 from the field in his last two games, and he is averaging seven points on the season.

So you're minding your own business in San Antonio, Isaiah Livers, and Sister Jean sidles up with her entourage, because that's just how she rolls. It would have taken a minor miracle, but this is Mach Madness where crazier things have happened.

Charles Matthews led MI with 17 points and 8 rebounds, as the team overcame poor free throw shooting and an abysmal 3-point game (18.2%) to reach the Final Four for the first time since 2013, when they also reached the final and lost to MI, a result that was vacated recently. But to book a trip to Texas it had to get away from what it does best - and what it did in Thursday's 99-72 demolition of Texas A&M in the Sweet 16.

Zavier Simpson then made one of two free throws with 40 seconds left to give MI a four-point lead, and after Phil Cofer, who led Florida State with 16 points, tipped in a miss with 24 seconds left, Robinson buried two more free throws with 21 seconds to finally ice the game. The Wolverines hit 19 of 49 for 38.8 percent from the field. Kentucky transfer Charles Mathews led all scorers with 17 points along with eight rebounds and has been one of the biggest impact transfers in college basketball this season.

The Seminoles were down four points at the time. Moritz Wagner added 12 points, six rebounds and two steals. About the only misstep before the first TV timeout, with MI on top by 10-4, came when Zavier Simpson comically threw up an unanswered prayer of a 3-point attempt over the elongated arm of Christ Koumadje, who is 16 inches taller. "They're a really good team", he said. Loyola-Chicago is the real deal on both offense and defense and they should be able to keep this one very close. But four for 17 (23.5 percent) from behind the three-point line was too much to overcome even if MI (4 of 22, 18.2 percent) was worse. Michigan, meanwhile, is off to the Final Four. "I'm so happy for them". Two nights after shooting lights out from three, MI struggled from long distance, hitting just 4-of-22 attempts.

Talk about a defensive battle.
