ORLANDO, Fla. -- At least one No. 5 stayed alive. Saint Louis, seeded fifth in the Midwest Region, worked five extra minutes Thursday night to avoid joining fellow No. 5s Cincinnati and Oklahoma in falling to 12th seeds in the NCAA tournament. The Billikens advanced by wiping out a late double-digit deficit and beating North Carolina State 83-80 in overtime. Rob Loe led the way with 22 points and 15 rebounds. Atlantic-10 Conference player of the year Jordair Jett overcame a slow start to score 18, doing most of his damage while Saint Louis (27-6) was escaping a 59-45 hole over the last five minutes of regulation. "We didnt want to end on that kind of note. We didnt want to bow out of the tournament this early," Loe said. "Were here to win, and were here to put our mark on basketball." With better free throw shooting, Saint Louis would have won without having to work overtime against a team playing its second game in three nights. No. 12 seed NC State (22-14) beat Xavier in an opening round game in Dayton, Ohio, and fatigue could have been a factor in the Wolfpack collapsing late and missing 17 attempts from the foul line. "Its heartbreaking. ... Obviously were going to always feel like we let one slip away," NC State coach Mark Gottfried said. " Its hard to explain. Were a good foul shooting team." T.J. Warren scored 28 points for NC State, but the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year made just six of his 14 free throw attempts. He missed one that could have tied it in the final minute of OT. Warren fouled out with 27.9 seconds remaining, leaving Ralston Turner to try to rescue the Wolfpack with a desperation 3-point attempt that clanked off the rim as time expired. Saint Louis, which starts five seniors, moves on to play either fourth-seeded Louisville or No. 13 Manhattan Saturday. The Billikens did it despite trailing by as many as 16 and going 12 of 26 from the foul line. "They got us out of our game ... both defensively and offensively," Saint Louis coach Jim Crews said. "Early in the game Rob hit a couple threes to get us off to a good start, but we started settling for jump shots I thought maybe the first eight minutes of the game, and then we just werent getting back (defensively)." Warren scored at least 20 for the 19th consecutive game. Turner, who finished with 16, hit a jumper and three free throws during a 19-7 spurt that helped the Wolfpack open their biggest lead. Saint Louis whittled away at its deficit, eventually tying the game at 70 on Jetts driving layup with 18.8 seconds remaining. It went to overtime when point guard Tyler Lewis was unable to get the ball to Warren and missed an open 17-foot jumper at the buzzer. Saint Louis played its best basketball of the season during a 19-game winning streak, however the Billikens stumbled down the stretch and had lost four of five. North Carolina State, by contrast, surged late to earn a spot in the NCAA field. The Billikens won their opening game in the tournament each of the past two seasons before losing matchups against Michigan State in 2012 and Oregon a year ago. "We missed a ton of free throws tonight, and we missed some other opportunities both defensively and offensively, but I thought during the process it was pretty good," Crews said. "We were getting what we wanted to get, but we werent cashing in on it. I cant salute these guys enough in terms of how they just stayed with it."

In 2011 Roscommon lost to Mayo in the final, before Mayo went on to secure five Connacht titles in a row, but in the meantime Roscommon have secured back-to-back promotions in the Allianz League.They were in Division 3 as recent as 2014, but in the championship they have struggled and their shock semi-final defeat to Sligo last year was followed by more failure in the qualifiers against Fermanagh. Here they trailed 2-8 to 0-6 at half-time and needed four goals in the second-half from Ciarain Murtagh (two), Senan Kilbride and Enda Smith.Roscommon started well and Conor Devaneys early point sent them on their way, but they always looked unsure at the back with Sean Mullooly a late call-up instead of Neil Collins.

Marren made no mistake and gave Sligo a 1-4 to 0-4 lead.Roscommon needed to get the next score but Murphy heaped on the pressure with another fine effort, before Ciarain Murtagh got Roscommons first point in 12 minutes.Keenan reduced the arrears further but Marren and Hughes hit two more points for Sligo, before they received a huge blow when Marren was shown a black card for an off the ball incident involving David Murray.Hughes got his third of the day as Sligo continued to press, annd they got a deserved second goal just before half-time.dddddddddddd. Donie Shine of Roscommon in action against Noel Gaughan of Sligo Neil Ewing sent in another ball and when Roscommon failed to deal with it at the first attempt, Kyle Cawley latched onto it, his first shot was saved by Murray, but he followed up to find the net.Sligo led 2-8 to 0-6 at half-time but they had a dreadful start to the second-half when Kilbride hit the net inside the first minute. He connected with a Niall Daly delivery to bring Roscommon back into the game.Roscommon dragged themselves level by the 50th minute when Fintan Cregg set up Murtagh to score their second goal.And after he gave them the lead again with a point, he converted a penalty in the 57th minute.
