WASHINGTON (AP) -- An official with knowledge of the agreement says George Mason is joining the Atlantic 10 next season.

The official told The Associated Press on Sunday that Mason will announce that it is leaving the Colonial Athletic Association effective July 1.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because both the school and the conference plan to announce the move Monday.

The university has called a news conference for Monday afternoon, and the conference has scheduled a teleconference shortly afterward.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Rasheed Sulaimon scored 21 points, Seth Curry scored had 17 and No. 2 seed Duke held off seventh-seeded Creighton 66-50 on Sunday to advance to the round of 16 for the fourth time in five years.

A year after they lost their NCAA tournament opener, the Blue Devils (29-5) are back in the regional semifinal for the 23rd time. They'll play No. 3 seed Michigan State (27-8) in the regional semifinal Friday in Indianapolis.

Mason Plumlee, Josh Hariston and Ryan Kelly battled foul trouble all game long that could have doomeed the Blue Devils. Creighton (28-8) went cold and never made a serious run in the second half. Doug McDermott scored 21 points but made only four baskets.

With McDermott slumping, the Bluejays were knocked out in the third round by an ACC team for the second straight season.

KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) - Kansas got the best of 'ol Roy and his Tar Heels once again.

Behind the impassioned play of Travis Releford and Jeff Withey, the top-seeded Jayhawks shook themselves out of a first-half slumber and blitzed No. 8 seed North Carolina down the stretch for a 70-58 victory Sunday in the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Withey had 16 points and 16 rebounds, and Releford finished with 22 points for the Jayhawks (31-5), who also knocked former coach Roy Williams' team out of the NCAA tournament during their 2008 title run and again last season, when Kansas marched all the way to the Final Four.

It'll keep marching this year - at least to the Sweet 16 - thanks to a superb second half.

P.J. Hairston scored 15 points and James Michael McAdoo finished with 11 for the Tar Heels (25-11).

AUSTIN, TX (AP) - Shane Larkin hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with a minute left and Miami kept possession on a ball knocked out of bounds that probably should have gone to Illinois, helping the Hurricanes hold on for a 63-59 victory Sunday night to advance to the NCAA round of 16.

After Larkin's first field goal in about 9 1/2 minutes, D.J. Richardson missed a 3-pointer. In the fight for the rebound, the ball appeared to ricochet off the hands of Miami's Kenny Kadji out of bounds. But the Hurricanes kept the ball, and Durand Scott made two free throws after that.

Miami (29-6) is in the round of 16 for only the second time in school history. The Hurricanes play Marquette (25-8) in Washington D.C. on Thursday night.

Larkin, the only non-senior starter for Miami and the ACC player of the year, finished with 17 points. Rion Brown had 21 with five 3s.

Brandon Paul had 18 points for Illionis (23-13).

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Not even many basketball fans knew about Florida Gulf Coast just a couple of weeks ago. They do now - the Eagles are the first No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16.

Bernard Thompson scored 23 points and Sherwood Robinson added 17 to lead FGCU to its second NCAA tournament win in as many tries, an 81-71 victory over San Diego State on Sunday night.

FGCU (26-10), which shocked the world in the second round with a 78-68 victory over second-seeded Georgetown, was just as entertaining and impressive in the third round, again using a big second-half run to take control of the game.

Now, the Eagles will face an opponent that should know a lot more about them. Third-seeded Florida will play FGCU on Friday night in the semifinals of the South Regional in Dallas.

The upstart state school against the main campus. Seems right up FGCU's alley.

Jamal Franklin had 20 points for the seventh-seeded Aztecs (23-11), who were trying to reach the regional semifinals for the second time in three years.

FONTANA, CA (AP) - Kyle Busch earned his first victory at Fontana on Sunday after rivals Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano wrecked on the final lap in a thrilling NASCAR finish.

Hamlin and Logano made contact while they raced side-by-side in the final lap of their first race since the drivers confronted each other last week at Bristol. Logano hit the outside wall and Hamlin hit the inside wall, with Hamlin leaving the course in an ambulance.

Tony Stewart then confronted Logano after the race and shoved the younger driver before teammates pulled them apart. Logano blocked Stewart out of a late restart.

Busch led the most laps and took advantage of his remarkable stroke of luck to pick up Joe Gibbs Racing's first victory at Fontana, the only track where the team had never won.

strokes behind 13th place Louisiana Monroe (323-319-324=966).
"It was a tough go for the team overall," said UNCW Head Coach Cindy Ho. "I felt we
were prepared to be more competitive but our inexperience really showed when the
conditions were tough. We have to trust our swing, our decision making and improve
our short games to be more competitive."
No. 8 Arkansas completed the wire-to-wire victory as it posted a 309 during Sunday's
final round capture the team title with a three-day total of 293-297-309=899, 10
shots ahead of second-place Tulane (298-302-309=909). Host Louisiana State
(306-294-312=912) claimed third while TCU took fourth (301-303-312=916).
Junior Lori Beth Adams carded a four-over-par 76 on Sunday to earn a share of 14th
place with a 54-hole total of 77-74-76=227. Sophomore Mattie Tobey posted a six-over
78 during the final round to earn a share of 64th with an 87-83-78=248 tournament
scorecard. Junior Megan Burnham (83-85-91=259/T-77th), senior Danielle Lamy
(88-87-84=259/T-77th) and junior Jeanne Metivier (89-96-90=275/79th) completed the
Seahawks entry. Sophomore Mallory Warrick (83-86-86=255/T-72nd) competed the event
as an individual entry.
"Very proud of how Lori Beth competed and played this week," said Ho. "The golf
course played very difficult this week and she was able to stay patient throughout
the round. Her putting speed was excellent on the challenging greens and her
overall short game really saved her."
Arkansas' Emily Tubert carded an even par 72 during the final round to claim the
individual title with an even-par total of 72-72-72=216. Maribel Lopez Porras
(71-74-76=221) of Tulane and Madelene Sagstrom (78-68-75=221) of LSU finished five
shots back of Tubert in a tie for second.
