Ephs hang on to win by three. The Blues had a chance to tie in the final half-minute, but one of their outside shooting aces, Trevor Osborne, shuffled his feet while trying to sidestep to his right for a cleaner look from beyond the arc.

Whitman missed a truckload of layups early in the game, most of them in transition, and, as the saying goes, points made at the beginning of the game -- or missed, in this case -- count just as much as the ones at the end. To the credit of the Ephs, they took what the Blues gave them, throwing over the top of the press for easy baskets. They got big contributions from a variety of guys off of the bench, and throughout the game they had the paint locked down with their superior size.

The other two sectional semis that're already in the book were also close and well-played. Swarthmore, which trailed most of the game, came back to nip Randolph-Macon by one, and Guilford likewise came back after being down most of the way to beat St. Thomas by seven.

Nichols upsets Amherst at LeFrak, 62-58. Quite an ending.

Another NESCAC team sees its season end on its home floor, as Hamilton goes down to Christopher Newport, 75-67, in upstate New York.

UW-Oshkosh cruises to an 86-75 win over Loras at Kolf. The Titans were in control of this game pretty much the whole way.

Anyone ever heard of this Francis kid? He seems to be having a great last couple minutes.

Yes, but the story of the game is the performance of the guys in navy blue and orange who don't wear the #1 on their backs.

I haven't seen the box-and-one for awhile (the last time I remember in fact was when Mike Nogelo played for Williams).  It seemed like a bad strategy because it gave open 3's to other guys, who were hitting at a high rate.  Then they went back to man and Francis just pulls up and hits 30-footers.  Damn.  He looks like Jimmer Fredette out there. 

Assuming Wheaton holds on, Oshkosh is the last big favorite remaining, and only two of the top eight teams made it to the Elite 8.  Crazy night in D3 hoops.  It's really, really hard to win games at this stage of the tourney.

I just tuned in with like 4 minutes left and he immediately nailed a couple huge threes and knocked down some FTs.

Yes, he did. He came up big in the clutch in close games, as he so often does.

But the story of the game is what happened before you tuned in.

For all the endless talk about sectional hosts that's raged on for a full week, the hosts have gone 1-3 tonight with only UW-Oshkosh surviving into the elite 8.
