Walton each chipped in 12 points, and Quincy Acy scored 11 for the fourth- seeded Bears (27-6), who advance to the championship game on Saturday against Missouri, which handled Texas 81-67 in Fridays other semifinal. "I think were just all more focused and playing as a team," said Jackson after the game. "Once we all are clicking like that, were hard to beat. We know what time of the year it is." Tyshawn Taylor led the top-seeded Jayhawks (27-6) with 20 points, while Thomas Robinson scored 15 to go with nine rebounds. Elijah Johnson and Jeff Withey netted 15 and 11, respectively, as Kansas bid for a third straight Big 12 tourney title came to an end. Early in the second half, Acy finished a layup to press the lead to 53-40, but Kansas scored 13 of the next 14 points to pull within one, 54-53, with just under 13 minutes to play. Acy finally quelled the surge with a tip-in, but Withey converted a three- point play at the other end to knot the game at 56 with 11:11 remaining. Kansas jumped in front briefly as Robinsons layup gave them a two-point advantage until Heslip nailed a trey to spark a 9-2 surge, giving the Bears a 65-60 edge with six minutes to play. Johnsons layup marked the only bucket from the field for Kansas during the run, which spanned nearly seven minutes in a pivotal stretch of the second half. Robinsons free throws brought the Jayhawks within three late, but Heslip answered with back-to-back three-pointers around a Taylor layup, giving the Bears a 73-66 edge with 1:17 remaining. Kansas came up empty on its next possession and Baylor went 8-of-9 from the line down the stretch to clinch its spot in the finals. "I dont think that we played particularly well in any facet," said Kansas head coach Bill Self. "We let them get comfortable early, which isnt a good sign when youre playing a really talented team." Early on it was a game of runs, as Baylor reeled off eight straight and Kansas responded with seven of its own to tie the game at 15. Travis Releford then brought his team within two, 29-27, with just under six to play, but Baylor scored the next seven, capped by Waltons triple to give Baylor its largest lead at 36-27. The Bears would take a 43-35 lead into the locker room.

Early in the second half, Brown pulled his team within four on a tough left- handed layup, but he went down hard on the right side of his neck and was in obvious pain while he received medical attention on the baseline.

Brown quickly returned from the injury as his triple stalled the Missouri run with 13:02 to play.

No, this is quite a team — all the way down the roster. Fearlessly attacking Syracuses suffocating zone in the first half, getting big contributions off the bench, and hanging on for dear life at the end, the Wolverines advanced to the national championship game with a 61-56 victory over the Orange in the Final Four on Saturday night. So put away those comparisons to the Fab Five. This group of young stars is determined to leave its own legacy. "Weve been a team all year," said coach John Beilein, whose Wolverines were playing in the Final Four for the first time since 1993, when the Fab Five lost for the second straight time in the national title game. "It was great." Michigan (31-7) will be going for its first national title since 1989 when it faces Louisville on Monday at the Georgia Dome. Syracuse (30-10) failed to complete an all-Big East final in the fabled leagues last season before a major overhaul. Louisville was established as a 4 1/2-point title game favourite. Dont expect that to bother the brash young Wolverines a bit. They showed they could win even when their best weapon, Associated Press player of the year Trey Burke, was having a really ugly night. He scored just seven points on 1-of-8 shooting. "We know Trey is our leader, and sometimes hes not going to have a game like hes had all season," said Tim Hardaway Jr., who led Michigan with 13 points. "Thats when our team stepped up." Trailing 58-56, the Orange had a chance to force overtime. But Brandon Triche was called for a foul when Jordan Morgan stepped in to take the charge with 19.2 seconds left. "Jordan is our best charge-taker," Beilein said. "He stood in there and took a good one." After Jon Horford made only one of two free throws, Syracuse called timeout and set up a play. Curiously, the Orange didnt attempt a tying 3-pointer. Instead, Trevor Cooney drove the lane looking to put up an easier shot. But the ball was swatted away, Michigan saved it from going out of bounds and Morgan wound up taking a long pass the other way. He threw down a thunderous slam with just over a second remaining to cap the triumph. Triche blamed himself for driving the ball recklessly into the lane when Syracuse had a chance to tie it. "I was just trying to make a play for the team," he said. "I probably should have made a better decision, probably should have pulled up for the jump shot. ... I did see him, but I figured, I was already in the air jumping." With Burke struggling to get open looks and misfiring even when he did, Michigan got an unexpected contribution off the bench from freshmen Caris LeVert and Spike Albrecht. LeVert scored eight points and Albrecht chipped in with six — all of them crucial after the Wolverines went cold in the second half and struggled to put away the Orange. "We had a lot of guys in there," Beilein said. "You never know who the outlier is, you never know whos going to come in and get that done." Of course, theres nothing unusual about Michigan getting big performances from first-year players. This team starts three freshmen — Glenn Robinson III, Mitch McGary and Nik Stauskas, from Mississauga, Ont. — which, of course, rekindles memories of the great Fab Five teams. These kids want nothing to do with the comparisons, saying they havent done nearly enough to be mentioned in the same breath with a team that changed the face of college basketball. Well, if the Wolverines can win their next game, theyll accomplish something that eluded the Fab Five: a national title. Syracuse was looking to give 68-year-old Jim Boeheim another title, a decade after the Orange won it all in their last trip to the Final Four. Boeheim has no plans to retire, but his quest for a championship is on hold for another year. "I told you Im not going to answer that question unless you ask that of every coach," Boeheim snapped at a reporter when asked about his future. "I nevver indicated at any time that Im not coming back. Nike Free 6.0 Laufschuhe Rosa Blau Weiß" Michigan won this game in the opening 20 minutes, doing exactly what it needed to do against Syracuses suffocating 2-3 zone: knock down open 3s, crash the boards, and work the ball inside and out with crisp, rapid-fire passes. "I thought we got off to a really bad start defensively in the first half," Boeheim said. "We just didnt have the movement that weve had, and Michigan took advantage of it. Our offence was not good in the first half or the second half. Second half, we got our defence going a lot better, and got back in the game in spite of our offence." When Syracuse started extending its perimeter defence, looking to cut off the long-range shots, Michigan created an open look late in the half with a nifty bit of ball movement. Robinson — like Hardaway, the son of a former NBA star — took a pass, whipped it ball to LeVert, who dribbled a couple of times and fed the ball back to Robinson for an open 15-footer. Nothing but net. The Wolverines began to pull away from Syracuse even without much of a contribution from Burke. He finally scored his first points with just under a minute remaining in the first half, swishing a 3 from nearly the same spot on the court where he made the long shot that stunned top-seeded Kansas. It would be Burkes only basket of the night. "At the end of the day, it wasnt offence," he said. "A lot of us didnt have good shooting nights, but it was defence that allowed us to advance." Burke came up huge in the South Regional, leading Michigan back from 14 points down with less than 7 minutes remaining against Kansas. He forced overtime with a long 3-pointer at the end of regulation, and Wolverines finished off the 87-85 upset in overtime. Syracuse, meanwhile, had taken its trademark defence to new levels of stinginess in the NCAA tournament. The Orange arrived in Atlanta having surrendered a paltry 45.75 points over four games, holding Montana (34), top-seeded Indiana (50) and Marquette (39) to their lowest scoring totals of the season. Overall, Syracuses tournament opponents had combined to shoot just 28.9 per cent from field (61 of 211) and 15.4 per cent from 3-point range (14 of 91). Syracuse was brimming with confidence heading into the Final Four, believing its zone could shut down the Wolverines and its more experienced lineup would take advantage of Michigans youth. But the Wolverines had more points by halftime than Montana, and nearly as many as Marquette managed in the regional final. Even though Hardaway missed a trey just before the buzzer sounded, Michigan sprinted off the court with a commanding 36-25 lead. Syracuse didnt have enough offensive firepower to come all the way back, shooting just 42 per cent (23 of 55). C.J. Fair scored 22 points, doing his best to rally the Orange all by himself. But Triche, with 11 points, was the only other Syracuse player in double figures. With Michigans starters also struggling, the guys off the bench picked up the slack. LeVert, who seemed headed for a redshirt early in the season and was known more for defence than offence, made a couple of 3-pointers in the opening half. He had connected just 11 times from that range coming into the Final Four. Albrecht was another surprise. He, too, buried a couple of shots beyond the arc — one of them going through from the corner while he was sliding on his backside toward the Syracuse bench. Coming into Atlanta, he had made only a dozen 3-pointers the entire season. Theres still another game to go. "Its going to be a great matchup," said McGary, one of those Michigan freshmen. "Theyre a team like Syracuse that also plays in Big East and they remind me of VCU the way they trap and can turn over the ball, so it should be a great matchup." The Wolverines routed VCU 78-53 in the second round of the tournament. If they can win one more time, theyll have bragging rights on the Fab Five. ___ Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 ' ' '
