Morehead State upsets Louisville in NCAA Tournament, 62-61

DENVER (AP) - Demonte Harper made a 3-pointer from the top of
the circle with 4.2 seconds left Thursday to lead 13th-seeded
Morehead State to the first upset of the NCAA tournament, a 62-61
victory over No. 4 Louisville in the Southwest regional.
After Harper's go-ahead basket, the Cardinals had a chance to
win it, but Morehead's Kenneth Faried blocked Mike Marra's attempt
before the buzzer and Louisville was gone after its first game for
the second straight year.
Terrance Hill scored a career-high 23 points for the Eagles
(25-9), who advance to play the winner of the Vanderbilt-Richmond
game.
Faried finished with 12 points and 17 rebounds for Morehead
State, which won its first NCAA game since 1984.
Chris Smith had 17 points for Louisville (25-10), which ends on
its first two-game losing streak of the season.
