Basketball: Tall Black's college side fall short of upset

Tall Black Rob Loe's college side Saint Louis have fallen short of upsetting number one seed Michigan State in the round of 32 at the NCCA basketball tournament today.

The former Westlake Boys High School student scored five points and grabbed four rebounds in his side's 65-61 loss to the West region's top seed.

Saint Louis led briefly by four points midway through the first half and pushed the Spartans throughout the game but failed to eliminate the Big Ten champions.

Michigan State now advance to the Sweet Sixteen to face Louisville.

The Billikens reached the round of 32 after beating the West region's eighth seed Memphis 61-54 in the weekend.
