DENVER (AP) - Kevin Anderson scored 16 of his 25 points in the
second half, including a floater with 18.7 seconds remaining that
helped seal 12th-seeded Richmond's 69-66 win over No. 5 seed
Vanderbilt on Thursday in the Southwest regional.
The Spiders (28-7) sprang the second upset of the day at Pepsi
Center after tiny Morehead State, the 13th seed, used a 3-pointer
by Demonte Harper in the waning seconds to upset fourth-seeded
Louisville, 62-61, in the early game.
Vanderbilt had a chance to tie the game with 2.5 seconds left,
but Rod Odom's desperation heave was nowhere near the hoop as time expired.
So much for the Commodores (23-11) vanquishing their tournament
demons. They have now stumbled in their last three appearances in
the NCAA, also losing to No. 13 seed Murray State on a last-second
shot last season and falling to Siena, another 13th seed, in 2008.
