Published: Tue, March 21, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.


Michigan 87, Notre Dame 84, 2 OT
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Dion Harris hit a 3-pointer as time expired in the second overtime to give Michigan a spot in the quarterfinals. The Wolverines (20-10) will play host to Miami Wednesday with a trip to the semifinals at Madison Square Garden at stake. Chris Quinn had 18 points to lead Notre Dame, but missed the second of two free throws with 16.3 seconds to play that would have given the Fighting Irish the lead. The Wolverines seemed unable to find a final shot before Daniel Horton got the ball to Harris with 1.5 seconds remaining. Horton, who finished with 29 points, tied it at 77 with a pair of free throws with 53.7 seconds to play in the first overtime, then stole the ball to give Michigan a chance at a go-ahead basket. Chris Hunter got a good look at a 3-pointer with a second left but it bounced off the front of the rim. The Irish (16-14), whose regular season losses were by an average of 4.3 points, led by eight for most of the second half but went scoreless for almost 4 minutes late in regulation to give the Wolverines an opportunity.
Louisville 74, Clemson 68
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Brian Johnson scored a career-high 13 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to help Louisville advance. Taquan Dean scored 20 points for the Cardinals (20-12), who will play host to Missouri State in the quarterfinals Wednesday. Akin Akingbala led Clemson (19-13) with 19 points and Cliff Hammonds added 16, but the Tigers shot just 39 percent from the floor and 11-of-24 from the free-throw line. Louisville never trailed after taking the lead midway through the first half, but the Tigers kept it close throughout only to be undone by their woes at the line. During one stretch early in the second half, the Tigers missed seven straight free throws, preventing them from getting any closer than four points the rest of the way.
Hofstra 77, St. Joseph's 75, OT
PHILADELPHIA -- Antoine Agudio scored 24 points and Loren Stokes had 22 to lead Hofstra. Aurimas Kieza added 17 for the Pride (26-6). Abdulai Jalloh led the Hawks (19-14) with 21 points, Pat Calathes had 17 and Chet Stachitas added 14. Kieza's go-ahead layup made it 76-75 with 19.8 seconds left in overtime.
Miami 53, Creighton 52
OMAHA, Neb. -- Guillermo Diaz made a free throw with 2.6 seconds remaining to give Miami the win. The score was tied at 52 when Diaz drove past Nick Porter and ran into Dane Watts while attempting the potential winning shot. Diaz made the second of two free throws. On the game's final play, Johnny Mathies collided with Diaz as he tried to get off a last-second 3-pointer. There was no call and the referees ran off the court as fans threw objects onto the floor. Robert Hite scored 16 points to lead Miami (18-15). Anthony King had 14 points and Diaz finished with 12 for the Hurricanes.
Missouri St. 60, Houston 59
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Nathan Bilyeu converted a three-point play with 2.3 seconds remaining to lead Missouri State. Missouri State (22-8) plays at Louisville Wednesday night with the winner advancing to the semifinals. Houston's Lanny Smith, who finished with 21 points, scored with 11.5 seconds left to give the Cougars a 59-57 lead. Missouri State's Deke Thompson drove to the basket on the other end and missed but Bilyeu converted the putback and was fouled. He made the foul shot to give the Bears the lead. Kellen Easley had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Missouri State. Bilyeu finished with 12 points. Ramon Dyer scored 16 for Houston.
Old Dominion 70, Manhattan 66
NORFOLK, Va. -- Alex Loughton had 20 points and nine rebounds and Brandon Johnson made two free throws with 11.9 seconds remaining as Old Dominion held on to beat Manhattan. Jeff Xavier's desperate 3-point heave for Manhattan just before the buzzer spun out. The Monarchs (23-9) advanced to play at Hofstra Wednesday. Xavier scored 19 points and Jason Wingate 18 for the Jaspers (20-11).
