NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dion Dixon stole the ball and dunked to put Cincinnati ahead for good with 1:32 left, and the Bearcats edged Florida State last night, 62-56, to reach their first regional semifinal in the NCAA Tournament since 2001. Cincinnati (26-10) will play No. 2 seed Ohio State in Boston on Thursday night in the East, giving the state of Ohio four teams out of the last 16 still standing. The Cincinnati-Ohio State game will be the second game of a doubleheader. The first game also will feature a matchup between the Big East and Big Ten, as top-ranked Syracuse meets No. 4 Wisconsin.

The Eagles play their second preseason game Friday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The first-string offense and defense each will play a half, according to the big man, so we should get our first extended look at what this team should look like against Green Bay. What are you most looking forward to seeing from those units? Please keep your 85/81 jokes to a minimum. I'm looking forward to seeing the first-team defense on the field for more than six plays. And I'd like to see how the offense looks with a little time to get into the flow of a game without the players knowing they're going to get yanked right away.

YANCY GATES and his 260 pounds rumbled up and down the floor for 46 minutes in another multiple-overtime classic at the Big East Tournament. The Cincinnati senior was still such a force in the second overtime yesterday that the Georgetown defense swarmed to him on the Bearcats' final possession, freeing Cashmere Wright to hit the winning shot in a 72-70 quarterfinal victory over the 13th-ranked Hoyas at Madison Square Garden in New York....

SHABAZZ NAPIER put Connecticut on his back again, helping the Huskies to their fourth overtime win this season. Napier scored 11 of his 27 points in overtime as Connecticut beat visiting Cincinnati, 73-66, on Thursday night in Hartford, Conn. "I try to be the best leader for this team, and guys look for me to make shots," he said. "All I've got to do is see the ball go in the hoop one time, and I feel like I'm going to make the next one. " DeAndre Daniels added 17 points and tied a career high with four blocked shots for the Huskies (18-7, 8-5 Big East)

Steve Logan scored a career-high 41 points, single-handedly outscoring visiting Southern Mississippi, and No. 5 Cincinnati had a 31-point run as it pulled away to an 89-37 victory last night. Cincinnati (24-2, 11-1 Conference USA) moved a half-game ahead of Marquette for the conference regular-season championship. Southern Mississippi (7-16, 2-11) has lost five in a row. Noteworthy Georgia forward Chris Daniels was suspended for the first half of today's game against No. 10 Kentucky for unsportsmanlike conduct in the Bulldogs' loss to Auburn on Feb. 9, a game that featured a brawl.

The Seattle Seahawks know just how the Dallas Cowboys felt yesterday. The Seahawks were pelted by snowballs during their 24-17 victory in Cincinnati, a situation that moved Bengals coach Sam Wyche to grab a microphone and implore the home crowd to desist. An outspoken critic of the way fans in Cleveland have thrown objects from a section of the end zone known as the "Dawg Pound," Wyche ended his plea by screaming, "You don't live in Cleveland - you live in Cincinnati. " The crowd of 54,744 cheered loudly and stopped throwing snowballs - at least until Seattle went ahead in the closing moments.

Look for Oswalt reaction everywhere else in this section. At Talkin', we're talkin' about T.O. and Ochocinco, the two greatest cartoon characters in the NFL, together at last. Gonz, are you thinking about demanding a trade to Page 2 of the Cincinnati Enquirer? The Eagles head to Cincy for a preseason game on Aug. 20. We'll assume at that point it will still be a full love-in between the two wacky receivers. How will it eventually play out? They'll probably trade me to the National Enquirer before the Cincy version.
