DAYTON, Ohio -- Dont get discouraged, coach Cuonzo Martin told his Volunteers during those long NCAA tournament timeouts. Instead, hang in there and figure a way to pull it out. They went about it a most improbable way. With forward Jarnell Stokes using his 280 pounds to dominate inside and a highly regarded defence finally locking in, Tennessee pulled off the first amazing comeback of the NCAA tournament. Stokes opened overtime with a three-point play that put Tennessee ahead to stay, and the Volunteers defence shut down Iowa in overtime for a 78-65 victory on Wednesday night, finishing off the First Four with an exclamation point. "I told our guys weve been through everything this season, keep your composure down the stretch," said Martin, who got his first NCAA tournament win in his third season at Tennessee. "Find ways to win the ball game." The Vols (22-12) head to Raleigh, N.C., where theyll play sixth-seeded Massachusetts on Friday in the Midwest Regional. They left Dayton with a lot of momentum -- six wins in their last seven games. "We did a tremendous job toward the end of fighting back," said Jordan McRae, who had 20 points. "We did a great job on our defence. For us to hold them like we did was a great job." Tennessee didnt lead until Antonio Bartons 3-pointer put the Vols up 59-57 with 3:05 left regulation. There were five lead changes before McRae missed a jumper missed at the buzzer, leaving it tied at 64. No surprise that Barton made the big shot. The senior transfer is the only Volunteer with any significant NCAA tournament experience, having appeared in three of them with Memphis. Stokes three-point play in overtime was the key moment in his 18-point, 13-rebound performance, putting the Volunteers ahead to stay. It was his 20th double-double this season, the most by a Volunteer since Bernard King had 22 of them in 1976-77. Tennessees highly regarded defence took it from there, holding Iowa (21-13) to one free throw the rest of the way. The Hawkeyes missed all eight of their shots from the field in overtime. "You go through anything so often -- being in those games, being in those situations -- were a much better team the last eight games," Martin said. "Guys stepped up and made plays." It was a tough ending to a long and stressful day for Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. He started the day in Iowa with his teenage son, Patrick, who had surgery to remove a thyroid tumour. His assistant coaches led the Hawkeyes through a meeting and their final practice, and McCaffery was back by game time. Martin and the Volunteers hugged him after the game and wished him well. "Their players hugged me and told me they were thinking of me," McCaffery said. "I was really impressed with their guys and the program Cuonzo has built there." Adam Woodbury had 16 points for Iowa, which got a subpar performance from its leading scorer. Roy Devyn Marble was only 3 of 15 from the field for seven points, matching his season low. "I dont think we ran out of gas," Woodbury said. "We made some key mistakes down the stretch and that hurt us." The ending will sting the Hawkeyes for a long time. They were struggling as they headed into their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2006, losing six of their previous seven games. Defence was the biggest problem, often letting them down in the second half. They opened the game in promising fashion, switching from man-to-man to zone to half-court traps. It worked. They got off to a 16-4 lead and were still ahead 29-26 at halftime. They kept swatting away the Volunteers runs until the last few minutes of regulation. Marbles basket tied it at 64, and he was guarding McCrae when he missed his fade-away shot at the buzzer sending it to overtime. Tennessee got an at-large bid by closing the season with a defensive flourish. The Volunteers won five straight before losing to No. 1 Florida 56-49 in the Southeastern Conference tournament. They gave up 61.1 points per game, second only to Florida in the SEC, and allowed an average of only 47.4 points in the last four games. In overtime, that defence decided it. Cheap Air Max 2018 .

He won 186 votes out of 203 ballots.Nico Rosberg may have never won a Formula 1 world championship, but the ease in which he has dominated the first three races of the season suggests his dreams could yet become reality in 2016. In claiming victory at the Chinese GP, Rosberg became the seventh driver to win the opening trio of grands prix since the sports inception.And, as if the pressure of securing a maiden championship wasnt enough for the German, the previous six who had started a campaign so strongly went on to lift the title that season. Brundle: Rosberg on a roll Martin Brundle on why Rosberg is managing expectations Rosberg is also now the bookies favourite in 2016 after three assured drives, and seems to be maturing after two years of hurt at the hands of Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton.He has already opened up an early 36-point lead in the Drivers Championship, and although a year younger than Hamilton at the age of 30, Rosbergs consistency since winning his first race back in in 2012 must also be lauded. Three or more consecutive wins at the start of the season Driver Season Consecutive GP wins Alberto Ascari* 1953 Argentina-Belgium Juan Manuel Fangio* 1954 Argentina-France Juan Manuel Fangio* 1957 Argentina-France Ayrton Senna 1991 US-Monaco Nigel Mansell 1992 South Africa-San Marino Michael Schumacher 1994 Brazil-Monaco Damon Hill 1996 Australia-Argentina Michael Schumacher 2000 Australia-San Marino Michael Schumacher 2004 Australia-Spain Nico Rosberg** 2016 Australia-China * excludes Indy 500 **sequence ongoing Sundays win took his total grand prix victories to 17, eclipsing the great Sir Stirling Moss record of the most wins without a championship.2016 has of course played into Rosbergs hands so far, with Shanghai a prime example. Already safe in the knowledge that Hamilton would be starting from the back of the grid, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Daniel Ricciardos hopes of challenging were then ended through contact and punctures within minutes. Nico Rosberg comfortably wins sixth consecutive race; Sebastian Vettel and Daniil Kvyat completed the podium Rosberg comfortably brought the W07 home and joins esteemed company with his perfect start to the year.ddddddddddddMichael Schumacher began the 1994, 2000 and 2004 seasons in similar vein, all three of which ending in titles, while Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill were victorious at the beginning and end of the year in 1991, 1992 and 1996 respectively.

However, in an ever-thorny issue where F1s record books are concerned, neither driver strictly won the opening three rounds of the World Championship as the Indianapolis 500 was an official race on the calendar between 1950-60. Neither Ascari nor Fangio competed at the famous Brickyard in those respective title-winning seasons.Hosting cars and drivers that were wholly different, the 33 American drivers who competed the Indy 1953 didnt enter a single race for the rest of the F1 season, for example. Wolff: Nico not favourite Toto Wolff has tipped Lewis Hamilton to close the gap The statistics then, point to prolonged Rosberg dominance. However, when informed of the record on Sunday, Rosberg replied: Yes, but they didnt have Lewis Hamilton as their team-mate.I dont see it that way at all. It is a handful of races. Yes, it is going well, but this is the longest season in F1 history with Hamilton as my team-mate, a triple world champion, who has been hard to beat in the past three years. Lewis Hamilton finished seventh after starting from the back of the grid It is going to be a great battle. I have a little bit of an advantage now which is good, better that way than the other way, but that is it really. I am just enjoying it and making the most of it race by race.With 18 grands prix left in the season, race by race is probably the best way to go as Rosberg aims for glory.Dont miss the F1 Report on Wednesday at 8:30pm on Sky Sports F1 for full analysis of an action-packed Chinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit.
