There's more than one version of March Madness happening in Minnesota sports.

No. 1 ranked St. Thomas advanced to the semifinals of the Division III basketball tournament today in Salem, Va.

Led by Will Deberg's 20 points, the Tommies (30-1) upended No. 8 Williams College (Massachusetts), 82-79, to get there.

St. Thomas trailed by eight at the half, but their steady offense chipped away at Williams. With eight minutes left in the game, they took the lead for good. Williams had one final chance with nine seconds left, down three points -- but had to settle for a 40-footer that wasn't close.

St. Thomas now awaits the winner of No. 2 Amherst and unranked Cabrini.

Should the Tommies win that Saturday matchup, they'll get two weeks off before the national title game, April 7 in Atlanta.
