Dayton, Ohio • On the verge of being the second No. 1 knocked from the NCAA Tournament, Indiana finally stopped Temple’s No. 1.

Victor Oladipo hit a key 3-pointer with 13 seconds remaining, and the top-seeded Hoosiers, their season moments from ending in disappointment, shut down Owls star Khalif Wyatt in the final three minutes to hold off Temple 58-52 on Sunday in the East Regional.

The Hoosiers (29-6) trailed by four with 2:56 left but closed with a 10-0 run. Wyatt scored 31 points to lead the Owls (24-10).

"Temple, like I said to our players in the huddle, they’re as tough a team physically and mentally as we faced all year, and we faced the best all year in the Big Ten," Indiana coach Tom Crean said. "They take a backseat to nobody. This was a hard-earned victory that can only make us better."

Miami 63, Illinois 59 • Shane Larkin hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with a minute left, and Miami gained possession on a ball knocked out of bounds that probably should have gone to Illinois, helping the second-seeded Hurricanes hold on in Austin, Texas.

After Larkin’s first field goal in about 91/2 minutes, D.J. Richardson missed a 3-pointer. In the fight for the rebound, the ball appeared to ricochet off the hands of Miami’s Kenny Kadji out of bounds. But the Hurricanes (29-6) kept the ball, and Durand Scott made two free throws after that.
