AFTER SITTING out last season, former Constitution High standout Savon Goodman has committed to Arizona State. The 6-6, 215-pound forward started his career at Nevada-Las Vegas, where he averaged 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 27 games as a freshman in 2012-13. However, he left the school following an arrest in which he later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor petty theft and trespassing. Though he did not play basketball, Goodman spent last season at Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Arizona State shrugged off 50-degree temperatures and high winds to slug its way past Long Beach State, 14-4, in the College World Series last night. The win eliminated the 49ers and sent ASU to Saturday's championship game. The Sun Devils (41-22) now are 3-0 in the double-elimination tournament. Defending champion LSU (48-17) will face elimination this afternoon when it meets Southern Cal (46-17) at 3:30. Should the Tigers win, the two will play again tomorrow with the loser going home.

Kylan Loney had five three-pointers among her 23 points, and Arizona State used 24 turnovers by 11th-ranked Georgia to win, 67-57, last night in Athens, Ga. The Sun Devils (7-1) scored 30 points off the turnovers. That negated 59 percent shooting by the Bulldogs (5-3), who got 16 points from Tasha Humphrey. Georgia held a 26-25 halftime lead, but Arizona State had a spurt over an eight-minute stretch of the second half to build a 52-38 edge with 9 minutes, 56 seconds to play.

Heading into last night's selection show, the Temple women's basketball team was fairly confident in its prospects for receiving a high seed in the NCAA Tournament. However, after finding out they will be only a No. 10 seed this time around, the Owls are breathing a sigh of relief just for getting in. "We were sitting here, thinking that we're pretty much set, but the fact that we got a No. 10 seed means that we were pretty much on the bubble," Temple coach Tonya Cardoza said.

Stacey Tullock, a three-time All-America at Arizona State and the school's all-time leader in every significant offensive category, was selected by the Charge with the fifth overall pick in yesterday's Women's United Soccer Association draft. The midfielder worried that missing a three-day scouting combine before the draft would hurt her. "Being drafted and going to the WUSA is exactly what I wanted," Tullock said. "The way things were going, not being at the combine, I was beginning to worry.

The Penn Quakers will fight the continuing battle of Eastern teams to earn respect from the college baseball establishment when they play Arizona State tonight (10 o'clock Philadelphia time) in the first round of the NCAA West II Regional in Tempe, Ariz. "There's this air that Northeast baseball is inferior," said Penn centerfielder Doug Glanville. "They think that because we're never on TV, because we don't play as many games, and because it's always cold, that the baseball is not as good.

If there's any good time for an air ball, Kenya Wilkins found it. And Zack Sellers took advantage. Sellers grabbed the missed shot by teammate Wilkins and put it back for the winning basket as Oregon ended a six-game losing streak at Arizona State by beating the No. 15 Sun Devils, 73-72, last night. Sellers' offensive rebound and shot capped a dramatic comeback by the Ducks (16-6 overall, 8-5 in the Pacific 10), who trailed, 63-49, with 10:19 to go. After a jump ball with 5.9 seconds remaining, Oregon got an inbounds pass to Wilkins, who fired a 16-footer from the baseline with a second left.

Senior leadership counts as much as talent and coaching for teams advancing in the NCAA basketball tournament. So when Arizona State came up with the big plays down the stretch yesterday to defeat Rutgers, 79-76, in a first-round Southeast Regional game at the Omni, it said as much about the Sun Devils' senior leadership as about the Scarlet Knights' lack of it. The Sun Devils' senior tag team of 6-foot-9, 250-pound center Isaac Austin and...

On Thursday morning, St. Augustine Prep coach Paul Rodio said he hoped his team could play a "regular high school basketball game" against St. Anthony of Jersey City. The Hermits went their coach a lot better than that. St. Augustine pushed St. Anthony to the brink before falling, 52-39, before a capacity-plus crowd in the showcase game of the Shoot Down Cancer Classic on Saturday. "I couldn't ask for anything more," Rodio said. "They [his players] played their hearts out. " St. Augustine (22-1)

AFTER THE first 250 games, scoring across college basketball is up from 69 points per game last year to 74, due to some combination of the 30-second shot clock and increased emphasis on allowing offensive freedom of movement. Scoring is way, way up Hawk Hill. Last season, the Hawks averaged just 61.7 points per game. After blasting Buffalo, 89-67 Wednesday night at Hagan Arena, the Hawks (3-0) are averaging 81.3 points. Now, it is very early and the competition is about to get much more serious when Phil Martelli's team travels to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut to play Florida Saturday and either Purdue or Old Dominion Sunday, but, as signs go, the increased scoring is positive.

1. Ohio State (5-0): Beat Indiana, 34-27. Saturday: vs. Maryland. If you have that running back, it might not matter who's the quarterback. Won at Maryland last year, 52-24. 2. Michigan State (5-0): Beat Purdue, 24-21. Saturday: at Rutgers. Hasn't looked as imposing since beating Oregon. Beat Rutgers last year at home, 45-3. 3. Texas Christian (5-0): Beat Texas, 50-7. Saturday: at Kansas State. OK, so maybe Texas isn't Texas Tech. Beat Kansas State by 21 last year at home. 4. Baylor (4-0)

Isheem Young has grown accustomed to winning football games. The 5-foot-11, 184-pound sophomore for Imhotep Charter starred last year for the Northwest Raiders in the Pop Warner National Super Bowl Championship in the Midget division. With four touchdowns and 158 yards rushing, Young led the Raiders to their first national title. Not quite a year later, he might not have shined the brightest on a drizzly Saturday afternoon at the Ben Johnston Supersite, but Young's winning ways made him a star among stars.

One didn't lead directly to the other, the family tale of how Charles Barkley was one of the first people to hold a newborn Corey Hawkins in the hospital, and Barkley's hospital touch had nothing to do with Corey developing a great shooting touch or Corey eventually becoming one of the great current three-point shooters in NCAA hoops. Except there is a tie. That hospital was in Philadelphia and Barkley was there because the baby was the son of his teammate and friend, Hersey Hawkins.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL'S new playoff era finally arrived last night. You could tell, because ESPN treated it almost like the Vatican was naming a Pope. As if we expected anything less. So for starters, what did we learn from the replacement for those much-maligned BCS Standings? Well, the 12-person Selection Committee, which on Dec. 7 will tell America the four teams that will be in the inaugural FBS tournament, had Mississippi State and Florida State first and second. No shock there, since the only two remaining unbeatens from one of the Power Five conferences are rated that way in both the media (Associated Press)

ABOUT THIS time a year ago, there were at least a few Temple folks wondering if Matt Rhule was the right guy to coach the Owls' football team. And definitely many more than a few who were questioning Rhule's choice of making well-traveled veteran Phil Snow his defensive coordinator. But that's what can happen when you lose your first six and opponents keep converting long passes at the end of a lot of those games to erase whatever good had come before.

Nick Foles is tough. Those who witnessed his performance in the face of adversity and countless hits in last Sunday's squeaker over the Redskins will testify to this declaration of what is typically a subjective claim. But the Eagles quarterback had proved his mettle during his senior season at Arizona when he played behind an inexperienced offensive line. And for two of his former linemen, who battled to protect him but couldn't always, there were two games that defined not only Foles' toughness, but his humility.
