K-State to face Loyola-Chicago in Elite 8

Kansas State has gotten a bit of help, thanks to UMBC's historic upset of Virginia, but the Wildcats have been impressive in their own right.

What a game. Hopefully the Ramblers can keep their run going against the victor of Kentucky and Kansas State when they meet in the Elite 8 on Saturday.

They entered Thursday averaging 9.6 makes from long range, and converting 39.6 percent, 21st-best in the country. The Ramblers will play ninth-seeded Kansas State on Saturday for a spot in the Final Four. Marques Townes hit a dagger 3-pointer with 6.2 seconds left that stood up as the game victor after Caleb Martin's 3 left Nevada one point short with less than 2 seconds remaining. They start two seniors in Donte Ingram and Ben Richardson and two juniors, Marques Townes and Clayton Custer Cameron Krutwig is the lone freshman in the rotation.

Caleb Martin leads the Wolf Pack, which shoots nearly 40 percent from long range, at 18.8 points per game.

After reaching the NCAA Tournament's round of 16 with an improbable buzzer-beater, MI shot 62 percent from the floor and routed Texas A&M 99-72 in the West Region semifinals on Thursday night to reach the Elite Eight for the third time in six years.
