PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Freshman Demetri Goodson streaked the length of the court and made a short, running bank shot with 0.9
seconds left, lifting fourth-seeded Gonzaga over Western Kentucky
83-81 Saturday in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Gonzaga (28-5) advanced to the South Region semifinals to play op-seeded North Carolina on Friday in Memphis, Tenn. The Tar Heels defeated LSU 84-70.

Steffphon Pettigrew hit a tip-in for the 12th-seeded Hilltoppers (25-9) that tied it at 81 with 7.2 seconds left. But Goodson took the inbounds pass and went straight to the basket, hitting from close on the left side.

Western Kentucky, which made a surprise run to the regional semifinals last year, was led by Orlando Mendez Valdez with 25
points.
