No miracle finish for Valparaiso as Maryland wins 65-62

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) As Valparaiso coach Bryce Drew was drawing up a plan to get the Crusaders the 3 they needed to send their NCAA Tournament game with Maryland into overtime, his father and former coach was in the stands, sketching a few options himself with a pen he borrowed from press row.

Bryce Drew didn't need to call Pacer, the full-court pass his dad, Homer, used to get him free for one of the most famous buzzer-beaters in tournament history. He had 13 seconds left and the ball in the front court. But Valpo never got off a shot.

Maryland's Varun Ram stripped the ball away from Keith Carter as he went up with Valpo's last chance and Maryland held on for a 65-62 victory on Friday.
