Cincinnati Vs. Nevada Live Stream: Watch NCAA Tournament Game Online

ESPN said that's the first time a region has failed to have a top-four team in the Sweet 16 since seeding began in 1979.

The NCAA Tournament resumes in the South Region with No. 2 seed Cincinnati taking on No. 10 Nevada.

Nevada moves on to face Loyola of Chicago in the Sweet 16 next week in Atlanta.

The Wolf Pack's only lead of the game came with 9.1 seconds remaining when Josh Hall hit a short jumper that would hold up as the final score.

Nevada's stirring comeback - the second-largest in tournament history - came just two days after the No. 7 seed rallied from 14 points down in the second half to beat Texas for its first NCAA victory since 2007.

Are you ready? In the meantime, here's a video of head coach Eric Musselman running into the locker room with his shirt off.

Here's the final shot that won the game for Nevada.

Irish counties issued weather alert for snowy St Patrick's Day
Temperatures on the face of it will probably be just around freezing, but with the wind, it's going to feel well below freezing. Widespread frost, low daytime temperatures and a significant wind chill are likely to develop.

Cody Martin led the way for the Wolf Pack, scoring 25 points in the comeback effort, along with seven assists and six boards.

Jevon Carter had a game-high 28 points and knocked down 5 of 7 3-point shots for West Virginia.

The seventh-seeded Aggies (22-12) did everything they had to do to hand the Tar Heels a rare loss in a home-state NCAA game. Instead, they couldn't buy a three-point shot, struggled to rebound against a bigger team and offered little more than a meager resistance as the Aggies played with aggressive confidence. The Spartans (30-5) made just 25.8 percent of their field-goal attempts as their frustration mounted against Syracuse's zone.

Robert Williams finished with 13 rebounds, helping the Aggies take a 50-36 edge while shooting 52 percent - including 10 of 24 from 3-point range.

The Retrievers "played their hearts out", Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. "You've got to just figure out a way to get stops and get baskets".

K.J. Maura, a 5-foot-8 point guard for UMBC, added: "We put our name on the map".
