Reed Crafton hit a three-pointer with 10 seconds left in overtime yesterday as Evansville defeated Oregon State, 94-90, and ended Ralph Miller's coaching career in the first round of the NCAA West Regional. "I was thinking it had better go in," Crafton said. Miller, who is retiring at age 70, ended his coaching career with 674 victories and 370 losses in 38 seasons. It was the eighth time he had taken the Beavers to the NCAA tournament. "I'm sorry it's over," he said.

Being in the Top 10 for the first time might have proved too dizzying for Creighton. Clint Cuffle scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half and shut down Kyle Korver as host Evansville ended the No. 10 Bluejays' six-game winning streak with a 74-66 upset last night. "There's just no explanation for what he did," Evansville coach Steve Merfeld said. "I'm just elated. " The game stayed close throughout, with neither team leading by more than five points, until the closing minutes.

Four people completely dismantled the Penn Quakers in yesterday's 90-66 loss to Evansville in the consolation-bracket final of the San Juan Shootout. Funny thing, though, was that those four people never touched the ball. "[Evansville's staff] must have scouted the first two games of this tournament, and did a great job at scouting," Penn forward Paul Romanczuk said. "That's a credit to their whole coaching staff . . . when we were setting our fade screens, the entire bench was yelling out exactly what the play was. " Evansville cruised to an 18-point lead in the first quarter, and then guarded that lead jealously.

Gene Hollencamp stumbled down the muddy hillside. Though the 28-year-old Army veteran had been a battlefield medic, Vietnam had not prepared him for this descent into what he would describe as "a vision from hell. " December 13, 1977, was an unusually warm and wet day in Evansville, Ind. Rain and melting snow had turned fields like the one Hollencamp now crossed into quicksand. Hollencamp would notice later - much later - that the mud stains on his pants reached up to his thighs.

La Salle topped Evansville, 70-54, at Hayman Hall last night in a Midwestern Collegiate Conference women's basketball game. The Explorers were too much for the visiting Aces to handle early in the first half. The winner (12-8, 6-4 MCC) jumped to a 23-6 lead in the first nine minutes and then hit some clutch baskets and fouls down the stretch when it seemed that Evansville might steal a victory. A previous 20-point lead had dwindled to 59-47 with four minutes remaining when Jennifer McGowan and Lisa Auman hit two key baskets to help maintain the margin the rest of the way. "It's a great, great win," said La Salle coach John Miller.

The goal for the start of the Temple women's basketball season was for the Owls not to get discouraged and not to back down. It did not translate into a victory last night. Evansville held firm down the stretch and emerged with a 76-70 victory over the Owls at McGonigle Hall in a first-round game in the Preseason Women's National Invitation Tournament. The Purple Aces advanced to the second round, where they will play tomorrow. "We got beat by some of the things that had been our nemesis last year - and that's boxing out," Temple coach Dawn Staley said.

Just when the La Salle Explorers felt they were climbing back up to respectability, they rediscovered rock bottom last night. Outplayed in every phase of the game, the Explorers fell meekly to Evansville, 63-41, at the Civic Center in a performance that was far worse than the final score indicated. In a game that rivaled its 71-44 loss to Penn in the season's second game for stinker of the year award, La Salle didn't shoot, didn't defend and didn't rebound. And didn't play with any enthusiasm.

So much for momentum. Less than 48 hours after their stunning road upset of Evansville, the La Salle Explorers returned to the bad habits that have plagued them all season - poor shot selection, poor interior defense and poor rebounding - and lost an 82-69 Midwestern Collegiate Conference decision to Butler before a crowd of 5,012 at Hinkle Fieldhouse. The Explorers (9-12 overall, 2-4 in the MCC) were in the game at halftime, trailing 37-33, but the Bulldogs (12-11, 4-3) controlled the entire second half and boosted their home record to 9-2. They shot 55.6 percent from the field, knocked down 4 of 6 three-point shots, held the Explorers to 34 percent shooting, and outrebounded the visitors by 23-15.

A ball that rattled around the rim and bounced out on Sunday in Columbus, Ohio, separated Michigan from its first No. 1 ranking in 20 years. Sophomore point guard Trey Burke's jumper with 17 seconds remaining went down, then came out, leaving the No. 2 Wolverines on the wrong side of a 56-53 loss to 15th-ranked Ohio State. After top-ranked Duke lost to North Carolina State on Saturday, the Wolverines were in prime position to ascend to No. 1 for the first time since November 1992.

In the season opener for both teams, Jack Cooley scored the first nine points of the game and finished with 19 to power No. 22 Notre Dame over the visiting Evansville Purple Aces, 58-49, in South Bend, Ind. "That was basically a Big East game, how physical it was in there," said Cooley, who had 11 rebounds and six blocks. "It was a little unexpected because of their size, but they just came out and they played hard. " Colt Ryan led Evansville with 15 points. The Purple Aces hung around throughout the second half but could never put together a run to pull ahead.

ITHACA, N.Y. - Oliver McNally made four free throws in the final 20 seconds as Harvard held off Cornell, 67-63, in Ithaca, N.Y., on Saturday night to clinch at least a share of its second straight Ivy League title. The Crimson (26-4, 12-2), who have concluded their regular season, need a Penn loss Tuesday at Princeton to clinch the crown outright and earn an NCAA berth for the first time since their only appearance in 1946. After the Big Red (12-16, 7-7) took their first lead at 30-29, Brandyn Curry hit four straight three-pointers to give the Crimson a 41-34 advantage with 14:04 left.

The University of Evansville held a memorial service yesterday to mark the 30th anniversary of an airplane crash that killed 29 people, including the entire men's basketball team. The team plane, a twin-engine DC-3, crashed in rain and heavy fog on Dec. 13, 1977, shortly after takeoff from Evansville Dress Regional Airport to Murfreesboro, Tenn., for a game against Middle Tennessee State. "There is never a good time to lose someone you love, but what made this event so hard was the loss of so many lives," university president Stephen Jennings said during the service at Neu Chapel.
