Cleveland State coach Gary Waters figured his team was headed for overtime. Cedric Jackson thought otherwise. The senior guard took an inbounds pass from J'Nathan Bullock with 2.2 seconds left, turned and swished a two-handed, 60-foot shot at the buzzer to give the Vikings a shocking, 72-69 victory over No. 11 Syracuse last night in the Carrier Dome. "I looked up to see if there was a chance but knew there wasn't enough time," Jackson said. "It was a prayer. It's not an everyday shot.

Cedric Jackson scored 19 points and Cleveland State upset No. 16 Butler, 57-54, last night, winning the Horizon League championship in Indianapolis and gaining its first NCAA Tournament berth since 1986. Six of Cleveland State's first seven field goals in the second half were three-pointers, helping the Vikings (25-10) erase an eight-point lead by the Bulldogs (26-5). Shelvin Mack led Butler with 18 points. In other tournaments: Sun Belt: At Hot Springs, Ark., A.J. Slaughter scored 18 points, and Western Kentucky (24-8)

From Villanova to UNLV to . . . Cleveland State? Rollie Massimino, who has been out of coaching since he left UNLV in 1994, is negotiating with Cleveland State and can have the head coaching job there if he wants it. The school expects to make an announcement on its coaching decision next week, an administrator said yesterday. "There is still some negotiating going on," said Cleveland State assistant athletic director Rick Love. "Some terms being talked about. I don't think there's anything that's insurmountable.

Cleveland State coach Kevin Mackey sounded like he was ready to paint the town green and white yesterday after his team eliminated St. Joseph's from the NCAA tournament with a 75-69 second-round victory. Mackey would not have had to look far to find a helper. Freshman guard Ken "Mouse" McFadden worked as a house painter in Cleveland last year while he studied for his Graduate Equivalency Degree. McFadden, who never played organized ball at Seward Park High in lower Manhattan, painted St. Joseph's (26-6)

The next hurdle for St. Joseph's will not be Indiana, as expected, but Americana. "Our off-Broadway guys came here today and beat the prime-time guys," exulted Kevin Mackey, the brazen coach of a Cleveland State club that finally did what Marist, Akron and Mississippi Valley State could not - chase down a favorite in the NCAA tournament and finish him off. CSU outshot, outrebounded and, shockingly, outworked Bobby Knight's Hoosiers in...

They blocked off Euclid Avenue in Cleveland on Friday night so 7,000 Cleveland State basketball supporters could revel in their team's first-round upset over Indiana in the NCAA tournament's East Region. It was the first time this year that anything concerning the run-and-fun Vikings had been forced to move slowly. Who are these guys, anyway? St. Joseph's (26-5) will find out today (Channel 10, 2:30 p.m.) in its second-round matchup at the Carrier Dome, after a contest between Syracuse (26-6)

The two Cinderella teams among the final 16 in the NCAA tournament exchanged their glass slippers for brass knuckles. Then they turned last night's East Regional semifinal from a fairy tale into a war movie. Given that, it may be of some comfort to the Defense Department that Navy squeezed past Cleveland State, 71-70, at sold-out Brendan Byrne Arena to advance to tomorrow's East Regional championship game against Duke. Johnny Dawkins would hear nothing about upsets in last night's other semifinal as the brilliant guard scored 25 points and hauled down 10 rebounds to lead top-ranked Duke to a 74-67 win over 12th-seeded DePaul.

Something caught on fire here last March, and for once it wasn't the river. The occasion is remembered simply as "the Indiana game. " It was the moment that Cleveland State's AA fuel dragster of a basketball team left skid marks on the Hoosiers, 83-79, in the first round of the NCAA tournament at Syracuse, N.Y. The game was carried on national television. Suddenly, from this obscure concrete campus on the tattered edge of downtown, a flame of recognition burned around the country.

On Monday, the Drexel men's basketball team was stung by the news that star guard Damion Lee would miss the rest of the season with a torn knee ligament. With Cleveland State coming to the Daskalakis Athletic Center on Wednesday night, it was gut-check time for Bruiser Flint's squad. The game stretched into triple overtime, but Lee's replacement, sophomore guard Tavon Allen, answered the call. Allen led Drexel (5-2) with 23 points to help the Dragons outlast the Vikings for a 85-82 win, their second straight in triple OT. Forward Jon Harris led Cleveland State (4-4)

AROUND THE CITY: PLAYING LIGHTS OUT Temple was tied with Xavier, 5-5, at the Liacouras Center. Seven minutes later, it was 21-5 and over. Want to understand what Temple hoops is about these days? Replay those 7 minutes a few times. The game can't be played much better. Temple won, 85-72. Once the first-half blitz subsided with Temple leading, 47-27, Xavier (16-9, 7-4 Atlantic 10) actually played pretty well. But the point had been made by the Owls (19-5, 8-2). Temple has now won eight straight.
