Sports Sunday: Sweet Sixteen set for NCAA Tournament championship
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
The Sweet 16 is set after a Sunday filled with close games and two huge upsets.
No. 7 seed South Carolina bounced No. 2 seed Duke, a team that opened as the betting favorite in some Las Vegas casinos.
Another 2, Louisville, was taken down by Michigan to leave the ACC with only one team in the field.
Ryan Newman's late gamble allowed him to win the Monster Energy Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway.
Newman skipped a tire-changing pit stop to take the lead from deep of the pack.
He held on for the final two laps to break a 127-race winless streak.
Newman also halted a 112-race losing skid for Richard Childress Racing.
Kyle Larson finished second for the third straight race.
Las Vegas native Kyle Busch was the leader for almost all of the final stage before taking third.
Marc Leishman has earned a berth in the Masters next month by rallying to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.
The Australian went ahead by sinking a 50-foot eagle putt on 16 before closing with two tough pars to complete a one-stroke win over Kevin Kisner and former UNLV golfer Charley Hoffman.
