DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Michigan is back in the Sweet 16 for the third consecutive year after pulling away for a 64-49 win over Florida in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday.

Jordan Poole scored 19 points and took charge of the game in the final seven minutes to help the Wolverines advance. Michigan (30-6) is the No. 2 seed in the West Region, the 2018 national runner-up and has reached the Sweet 16 five times in the last seven years.

The 10th-seeded Gators (20-16) shot just 29 percent in the second half, 34.5 percent for the game and were held to their lowest point total of the season.


Kentucky tops Wofford as Magee struggles

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Everywhere Fletcher Magee turned, there was a hand in his face, a body in his way, a relentless wave of blue that was intent on making sure he never found any alone time.

Kentucky totally and completely shut down the most prolific 3-point scorer in Division I history.


Waters' late layup sends LSU to Sweet 16

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) It's probably the same play suspended LSU coach Will Wade would have called.

After all, it worked several times during the regular season. And now it has sent the Tigers to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2006.


Duke F White unlikely to play vs. UCF

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Duke probably won't be a full strength for its NCAA Tournament second-round game against UCF on Sunday with reserve forward Jack White likely to sit out a second straight game.

White, who's averaged more than 21 minutes a game off the bench, was out for the first-round win over North Dakota State with a hamstring injury. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said White worked out some Saturday and will test himself in warmups before Sunday's matchup with ninth-seeded UCF but "we don't think he's going to play."

UNC hoping to avoid another early exit

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Top-seeded North Carolina is trying to avoid a repeat of last year's NCAA Tournament, when the Tar Heels couldn't make it out of the opening weekend.
