Nevada coach rips off shirt after upset comeback over Cincinnati — March Madness

It was the second-biggest comeback in tournament history, behind BYU's comeback from a 25-point deficit against Iona in the 2012 First Four.

Nevada is showing that no lead is safe. Jacob Evans tallied 19 points to pace the Bearcats (31-5). The Wildcats made just enough plays to fend off the cold-shooting Retrievers.

The Retrievers "played their hearts out", Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. They overcame a 14-point deficit in the second half of the first-round match-up against Texas. It was their first lead of the game, and the only time a lead mattered.

Florida State beat the Musketeers to move on to the Sweet 16, where the Seminoles will face Gonzaga. Texas A&M won in Tar Heel-friendly country in Charlotte.

Nevada outscored Cincinnati 32-8 the rest of the way.

Vincent Edwards scored 20 points despite early foul trouble for Purdue, and Matt Haarms filled in capably for the injured Haas. Kelan Martin led the Bulldogs (21-14) with 29 points, and Baldwin added 14 points. He finished with eight points and seven rebounds.

This region has been full of excitement, highlighted by No. 16 seed UMCB's historic upset of top-seeded Virginia.
