Tony Raye's two free throws with 2 seconds remaining brought 14th-seeded Austin Peay a stunning 68-67 upset over third-seeded Illinois last night in Birmingham, Ala., in a Southeast Region first-round game in the NCAA tournament. The Governors, from Clarksville, Tenn., took a seven-point lead early in the second half. But it appeared that Illinois (22-8) had pulled the game out with 13 seconds to go when Tony Wysinger hit a foul-line jumpshot to put the Illini up by 67-66. Without calling time, Austin Peay (20-11)

Chris Douglas-Roberts scored a career-high 28 points on 10-for-12 shooting, leading No. 19 Memphis to an 88-63 victory over visiting Austin Peay last night. Douglas-Roberts, a sophomore guard, also was 8-for-10 from the line and had five assists for Memphis (8-2). The Tigers shot 62 percent from the field. Doneal Mack, Jeremy Hunt and Kareem Cooper added 11 points each, and Joey Dorsey finished with 11 rebounds. Derek Wright led Austin Peay (3-5) with 18 points. Memphis scored the game's first 10 points and built a 22-2 lead.

If there ever was a balm to soothe the scars from Temple's two season- opening losses, it's Austin Peay. The Governors haven't won a football game since Nov. 12, 1988. They went 1-10 last season, winning only because of a forfeit by the Morehead State Eagles, who used an ineligible player. The Governors' losing streak was extended to 12 games last week with a 24-10 loss to Tennessee-Martin. But the Owls, who are 0-2, probably will enter Veterans Stadium on Saturday as if they are facing a top-10 team.

Unwittingly, St. Joseph's may have caught Austin Peay at the right time. The Governors were without star forward Bubba Wells, who averaged 27.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game a year ago before suffering a fractured right leg during the Ohio Valley Conference championship game. He is expected back in two or three weeks. Call it perfect timing for the Hawks, who rolled over the Governors, 74-58, last night in the first round of the Pepsi-Oneida Classic. Rashid Bey and Arthur Davis led St. Joseph's (4-3)

Lionel Simmons scored 29 points to lead La Salle over host Austin Peay, 79-74, last night in the championship game of the Acme Boot Showdown. Simmons, who had the winning basket against Georgia Southern the night before, was named the most valuable player of the tournament. La Salle improved its record to 2-1; Austin Peay fell to 3-1. "We were real glad that the game wasn't a couple of minutes longer, or we could have been in trouble," Explorers coach Speedy Morris said.

For many of the late-arriving fans yesterday at Veterans Stadium, "Hammer Time" began early. Judging by the way the crowd grew as the game between Temple and Austin Peay progressed, many had come to witness a concert, but it was the Owls, not rap music star M.C. Hammer, who were doing the hammering. Temple, desperately seeking a victory after two season-opening losses, breezed past Austin Peay, 28-0, before turning over center stage to the fancy- dancing artist. A crowd of 24,785 was on hand for Temple's home opener, and the Owls, playing the only NCAA Division I-AA opponent on their schedule, scored all of their points in the first half to register their first shutout since the team blanked East Carolina, 17-0, on Sept.

St. Joseph's offense finally warmed up in a city known mostly for its cold. The Hawks placed four players in double figures and shot 67 percent from the field in the second half in beating Austin Peay, 74-58, last night in the first round of the Pepsi Oneida Bingo & Casino Classic at Brown County Arena. St. Joseph's (4-3) will play Wisconsin-Green Bay, a 57-49 winner over Pepperdine, in tonight's championship game. After hitting just 36.7 percent of their shots through six games, the Hawks connected on 29 of 57 field goals, including 18 of 27 in the second half.

The Temple Owls will be playing tomorrow's game under somewhat unfamiliar conditions. They will be the home team. The Owls, who had only four home games in 1989 and who will be playing the first of just four home games this season, will square off against Austin Peay hoping to experience another unfamiliar sensation - victory. Austin Peay, the only NCAA Division I-AA school on Temple's schedule, hasn't won a game since late November 1988, so the chances of the Owls (0-2)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - When James Franklin's coaching stint at Vanderbilt began in December 2010, most fans hoped there would be at least incremental improvement in a program where five wins constituted a good season. If he could eventually make the Commodores competitive in America's toughest college football conference, the SEC, that would be a bonus. Now, with Franklin gone to Penn State, any objective look at his three seasons would conclude he accomplished that task. A 24-15 record, back-to-back 9-4 seasons in the final 2 years, and consecutive bowl wins (three straight bowl trips overall)

Four more leagues begin their conference tournaments today. The West Coast Conference should be particularly interesting as Saint Mary's, which already has nicked Gonzaga's armor, tries to win the league's automatic bid for the second time in three years. Atlantic Sun Regular-season champ: Belmont won its second consecutive outright title by going 16-2 in the league. The Bruins lost by one at Duke in the season opener and have four starters back from last year's team that went 30-5.

David Appolon entered the summer hoping to draw attention from major college basketball programs. As things stood recently, however, his pursuers included Robert Morris, Mount St. Mary's, Long Island and Austin Peay. "What it came down to," he said, "was going into the season and trying to see what else could happen or making my decision now and going with a school that I knew really wanted me. "I competed hard for my summer team, Team Philly, but things didn't go too great for us. Since I was the point guard and the ball was in my hands, [the lack of success]

As an assistant coach at Memphis last season, Derek Kellogg watched Kansas guard Mario Chalmers take a handoff on the wing and hit a three-pointer that sent the national championship game into overtime. Faced with a similar situation, this time as Massachusetts' head coach, Kellogg knew what was coming - and his team defended it perfectly in Kansas City, Mo. Tony Gaffney got a piece of Sherron Collins' final shot and Massachusetts (3-6) survived a mad scramble in the closing seconds, holding off No. 25 Kansas (7-2)
