VCU made the game more chaotic — Havotic? — with its pressure to start the second half and started working the ball inside, racing through an 11-0 run to go up 52-43.

The Rams stayed in control most of the half, but missed four free throws in the final 32 seconds to give the Lumberjacks a shot at victory.

“I like the way we battled the majority of the second half, but we just didn’t finish the game,” Smart said. “We kind of gave them a glimmer of hope.”

The Jacks ran with it, earning their spot in NCAA tournament history with one improbable shot.
