First Published Mar 20 2014 11:02 pm • Last Updated Mar 20 2014 11:46 pm

Orlando, Fla. • Rob Loe scored 22 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, helping St. Louis wipe out a late 14-point deficit and pull away in overtime, 83-80, over North Carolina State.

Jordair Jett overcame a slow start to score 18, doing most of his damage while the fifth-seeded Billikens (27-6) were making their comeback in the last five minutes of regulation.

Both teams shot horribly from the free-throw line, with Saint Louis shooting 12-for-26 and No. 12 seed NC State shooting 20-for-37.

T.J. Warren scored 28 points for the Wolfpack (22-14), but the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year made just six of his 14 free throw attempts, including one that could have tied it in the final minute of OT.

Michigan 57, Wofford 40 • In Milwaukee, Glenn Robinson III scored 14 points and second-seeded Michigan started their quest for a second straight trip to the Final Four.

The Wolverines (26-8) capitalized on their decisive edge in athleticism on the undersized and No. 15 Terriers (20-13) but still had some nervous moments after missing 15 of their first 18 shots in the second half.

Karl Cochran’s 3-pointer with 9:25 left whittled an 18-point deficit to 40-33.

But the Wolverines regrouped, and Caris LeVert’s 3 with 4:17 left gave them a 15-point lead to deflate Wofford’s dreams of an upset.

Texas 87, Arizona State 85 • In Milwaukee, Cameron Ridley’s buzzer-beating layup lifted Texas into the third round.

Jonathan Holmes missed badly on a long 3-pointer for the seventh-seeded Longhorns in the final seconds, but Ridley emerged from the scrum with the ball and banked it in as time expired over the outstretched fingers of an ASU defender.

The call stood after a video replay, giving Texas its first win in the NCAA tournament since 2011.

Ridley finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Longhorns (24-10).

Louisville 71, Manhattan 64 • In Orlando, Fla., Luke Hancock hit two huge 3-pointers in the final 1:19 to help Louisville finally shake free from tenacious Manhattan.

The defending national champion Cardinals were down 58-55 with less than 4 minutes to play before coming alive from the 3-point line.

Guard Russ Smith, who finished with 18 points, got things going with a game-tying 3 from the wing.
