Tennessee-Chattanooga last played in the NCAA Tournament two years ago. The Mocs fell behind to Connecticut, 15-0, and never recovered. Last night, they turned that around. Chattanooga, the No. 14 seed, stunned Georgia by scoring the first 15 points of the game, then held on for a 73-70 upset of the third-seeded Bulldogs in the first round of the Southeast Regional at Charlotte Coliseum. "We really wanted to have a good start," said forward Johnny Taylor, who wasn't around when the Mocs were beaten by UConn, 100-71, in their 1995 NCAA Tournament appearance.

Randal Falker had trouble finishing in the first 20 minutes. He kept going at the basket, though, and it paid off with repeated trips to the line.

Bryan Mullins added 10 points for the Salukis, who reached the round of 16 at the NCAA Tournament last season. Falker and Mullins are among three returning starters from that team.

Fishing for a new coach back in 1985, Tennessee-Chattanooga interviewed Roy Williams, then an assistant at North Carolina who thought a head-coaching job in the Southern Conference to be almost nirvana. But Williams felt awkward about the timing, because his son had just started at a new school, and pulled himself from consideration. These days, you won't find a whole lot of people in Chattanooga complaining. "They got a better coach," Williams said. "And he can tell a lot more jokes than I can, that's for sure.

There could be coal in more than a few stockings on Hawk Hill tomorrow morning, which is what happens when you lose to a 1-7 team two days before Christmas. There is no sugarcoating this one. St. Joseph's coughed up an eight-point lead in the final four minutes last night, losing, 68-65, at Tennessee-Chattanooga. It was Chattanooga's first win over a Division I opponent this season, and it is a loss that has to rank among the worst of the Phil Martelli era. It was also among the weirdest.

"At about 11:20 Eastern, I thought the deal was dead . . . because we had not agreed on players," the Phillies general manager said. "And then it got revived. " Rob Rasmussen, a lefthander who was taken in the second round of the 2010 draft by the Florida Marlins, was the player who convinced Amaro to pull the trigger on the deal that sent Young to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

FOR A CHILD who grew up loving baseball in the late 1950s and early 1960s, "42" provides a sweet wallop of stadium nostalgia. Ebbets Field, home of Jackie Robinson's Brooklyn Dodgers, has as much of a starring role as Harrison Ford. Thanks to CGI, the long-gone ballpark lives again, from the rotunda entryway to the cyclone fence in right field that rose above the ads for Gem razor and Esquire boot polish. Production designer Richard Hoover used old photos and the original blueprints of Ebbets Field, with computer imaging, of course, to re-create the park.

Chattanooga wants to turn itself into a geek city by importing geeks from elsewhere. To lure the kind of new-technology minds it wants, Chattanooga will pay $10,000 a geek in the form of a second forgivable mortgage on a home - if the techie buys in a targeted edgy neighborhood. Plus, this fast-growing Tennessee city on the Tennessee River will throw in $1,250 in moving costs to the right person with more than a passing knowledge of Java, Perl, Python and Ruby - all computer software languages.

IT WAS THE MIDDLE of January and Chattanooga coach John Shulman was feeling a bit despondent. Despite being loaded with seniors, his Mocs were 1-2 in the league and 5-10 overall. Davidson was clearly the darling of the Southern Conference, but Chattanooga was supposed to be better than 5-10 with 16 regular-season games remaining. Then, Shulman's cell phone went off. The text message read: " 20 WINS THIS YEAR!!! IT'S STILL POSSIBLE . " It was a missive from one of his leaders, Philadelphia native Khalil Hartwell, and it almost immediately brightened the coach's spirits.

But the Spartans (18-12) rallied, trimming the lead to 63-62 with 14 seconds left. Katelynas then made two free throws, and Long stole the ball on the Spartans' next possession to wrap the game up.
