With heart, according to coach Ryan Odom. "What they did to Virginia was unbelievable". Playing out of the South Region, K-State's Barry Brown, Jr., lead the way with 18 points in a low scoring game. Who would've thought a team, who no one has ever even heard of, could do that? Makol Mawien added a dunk on a fastbreak to seal the victory with 45 seconds left.

Pope wasn't even a regular with Burnley until Tom Heaton suffered a dislocated shoulder in September to hand him his top-flight debut.

Wright expects Salah to leave Liverpool for Spain

Liverpool have recent history at allowing their top players leave for the right money having sold Philippe Coutinho for £145million to Barcelona in January.
