No. 2s North Carolina and Cincinnati and No. 3 Michigan State also failed to advance on Sunday, while UMBC's dream run came to an end in a nail-biter against Kansas State.

• with 8:23 to play in the first half, West Virginia's up 23-20 on Marshall
The ride comes to an end, but it was a gritty effort by UMBC, right to the buzzer.

UMBC's hustling hard, but the clock's about to strike midnight.

Xavier's now dialled in.
At least, Karem Kamper is.
