Drake women out in first round of NCAA Tournament

Day #1: NCAA Men's Basketball Championship First And Second Rounds

In the game's first seven minutes, Texas A&M went 0 for 10 from the field.

Perimeter success prevents opponents from packing the paint, which creates space and opportunities for Tyler Davis inside.

EAST: No. 2 Purdue (28-6) vs.

The Aggies (25-9) broke the game open in the second quarter, building a 57-42 halftime edge.

With less than a minute on the clock and a seven-point lead in favor of No. 7 seed Texas A&M, the Friars' Rodney Bullock went up for a 3 to shrink their deficit.

Meanwhile, Carter had 19 points and eight assists in the first half as the Aggies shot 60.5 percent from the floor, including 6 of 11 on 3-pointers (54.5 percent).

Form Eriksen hopes he hasn't hit Tottenham ceiling
Swansea had won seven straight games at the Liberty Stadium since losing to Tottenham in the league at the start of January. They have been kept apart in the quarter-finals, which take place this weekend and see United with the most desirable draw.

"We're just out there doing our job", Davis said. "And so we've got to try to do it at a higher level now than anybody else that we've played". They aren't to be taken lightly, though their 4-7 road record could be a factor in today's March Madness game. PC (21-14) has shown it can reach the NCAA's with a fifth straight appearance but no one is happy with going one-and-out in four of the five trips.

Ashton Millender and Mart'e Grays both added 16 for the Blue Demons (27-7), which used 3-pointers to jump to an early lead that it never lost.

"It's something we take pride in every game", said Robert Williams, sophomore forward for Texas A&M. The Aggies will play the victor of the No. 2 seed UNC-No. Providence worked on trimming the lead, and Alpha Diallo's layup made it 67-61 with 1:03 left.

Williams is 6-10, but his elevation and elegance were on point with this dunk, and that was necessary, too, since A&M couldn't make their free throws in trying to close out the game.

Texas A&M scored 10 consecutive points with 13:08 left in the 2nd Half, making the game 45-37 in favor of Texas A&M.

There might have been contact, but no whistle came.

Russian politician warns Britain not to escalate diplomatic crisis
In Brussels, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the defense alliance stood ready to provide support to Britain . The Russian Embassy in London said the expulsion of diplomats was "totally unacceptable, unjustified and shortsighted".

The Friars cut the deficit to 67-61 with 1:08 left but that was it. Bullock had a desperation three blocked by Williams that the likely first round National Basketball Association pick took to the other end and wound up for an emphatic dunk. The victor of the game faces the North Carolina-Lipscomb victor on Sunday. The Aggies also owned the boards 44-26. "(Williams and Davis are) bigger, stronger and have been in college and knows how to play.

Providence made a nice run in the Big East Tournament, getting to the finals but losing to Villanova. Guard Terance Mann, their second-leading scorer with 12.8 points a game, slipped on the court and aggravated a groin muscle during the Missouri win. "They got length rebounds", Providence coach Ed Cooley said.

"It's really sad that I have to see these seniors leave", he said. "That's no disrespect to the guys that were on the team a year ago, but that's sort of what happens when guys start to climb up the draft boards and they feel like they're auditioning in March a little bit".

"I'm going to get on my soapbox again", Blair said. And that gives them their best chance to stick around the NCAA Tournament for another weekend.

"And to be here five times in a row ... it's rare".
