Maryland, the 2005 national champion, and Indiana, the 2003 and 2004 champion, fell in the third round of the NCAA Division I Men's Tournament on Saturday.

Joseph Lapira scored his 22nd goal of the season -- tops in the country -- with less than four minutes left in the second overtime to lift Notre Dame to a 1-0 victory at No. 5 seed Maryland. Lapira's goal came just 82 seconds after Stephen King came inches away from recording the golden goal for the Terps as a blast he hit nailed the left post.

No. 7 seed Indiana fell to Santa Clara, 5-4, in a shootout in Bloomington, Ind., after their game ended in a 0-0 tie.

The top three ACC seeds -- No. 1 Duke, No. 2 Wake Forest and No. 4 Virginia -- all won. Wake's 2-1 victory over Towson moved the Demon Deacons into the quarterfinals for the first time ever. Clemson, the fifth ACC team in the round of 16, lost at UCLA, 3-0.

Two years after finishing second to Indiana, unseeded UC Santa Barbara is back in the final eight after being Old Dominion, 2-1, on the road. The game turned on two missed penalty kicks. ODU's Evan Newton stopped a penalty by UCSB's Eric Avila -- his roommate at U-17 residency camp -- but Avila slotted home the rebound to put the Gauchos ahead, 2-1.  UCSB keeper Kyle Reynish saved Ross Mackenzie's PK with five minutes left in regulation to preserve the victory. Mackenzie had earlier beaten Reynish with a spot kick for the Monarchs' goal.

For the third straight year, UNC Greensboro fell in the round of 16, losing to upstart Northwestern, 2-1. UCSB hosts Northwestern next Friday in a battle of the tournament's only remaining unseeded teams.
