Florida State Vs. VCU, Sweet 16 Results: VCU Tops Noles 72-71 In OT

Bradford Burgess made a lay up off of an inbounds play with just 7.1 seconds in overtime to give VCU the lead for good and earn them a spot in the Elite Eight. 

Burgess led the Rams with 26 points while Jamie Skeen added 11. 

The Seminoles surprised many making the sweet 16 especially after forward Chris Singleton went down with an injury at the end of the regular season. Singleton returned for the ACC tournament and Florida State fought its way through the tournament. 

Derwin Kitchen led the Seminoles with 23 points while Singleton added 16. Florida State hammered VCU on the boards out rebounding the Rams by a 45-28 count. However, the Seminoles only hit 37% of their shots while VCU connected at a 45% rate. The Rams were 12-26 from three point range. 

VCU advances to the Elite Eight where they will take on No. 1 seeded Kansas on Sunday. The Jayhawks defeated Richmond 77-57 to earn their way into the Elite Eight.
