The Orange will meet No. 3 seed Michigan State - which barely knocked out No. 14 seed Bucknell - on Sunday afternoon in Detroit. After being in command for most of the game, Syracuse pulled out a stunning, 55-53 win.

The most recent meeting between the two teams came on December 7, 2010, in the Jimmy V Classic. He made both free throws, and the ball returned to Syracuse with 7 seconds on the clock.

Kansas State 69, Creighton 59 - Barry Brown scored 18 points and ninth-seeded Kansas State posted a wire-to-wire victory despite playing without leading scorer Dean Wade.

Beard was the coach at Arkansas-Little Rock when the 12th-seeded Trojans shocked Purdue 85-83 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament just two years ago. Syracuse has won and covered in four straight against the Spartans. And Michigan State will likely play all of them, in an effort to wear down and create foul trouble on a Syracuse frontline that lacks depth and has been limited by injuries. Michigan State's offensive rebounding percentage was their largest advantage over Bucknell.

Purdue redshirt freshman Matt Haarms made the most of his opportunity to fill in for Isaac Haas, scoring 7 points and grabbing five rebounds in 17 minutes to help third-seeded Purdue lead 10th-seeded Butler 40-36 at halftime Sunday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Orange, meanwhile have already picked up two wins, beating Arizona State and TCU by a combined nine points.

TCU (21-12) is still without an NCAA Tournament victory since 1987, when coach Jamie Dixon was a player. The Spartans, flummoxed by Syracuse's 2-3 zone, didn't make a basket in the last 5:41.

Syracuse barely got into the NCAA Tournament, getting the 68th and final spot. Defensively they're sound but the offense has much room for improvement.
