When the game of this NCAA Tournament was supposed to be done and the two schools that had combined for 3,434 wins, 566 in the 1990s, nine national titles and 23 Final Fours had played an unforgettable 40 minutes, there was one thing missing. An ending. That would come after another five minutes. Kentucky and Kansas, first and third all-time in wins but meeting for the first time in the NCAA Tournament, had matched each other basket for basket, floorburn for floorburn, comeback for comeback.

FOR THE SECOND consecutive game, the Union lost a lead in extra time. The Union tied host Real Salt Lake, 2-2, on Wednesday night in Sandy, Utah, as Javier Morales scored on a penalty kick 7 minutes into the extra time. Sebastien Le Toux and Conor Casey scored for the Union (7-5-6). "If you would've told me coming into this game that I would've had a point coming out of here, I would've said I'll take it. The way that it went down, no, we're disappointed," Union manager John Hackworth said.

A Swarthmore College senior with learning disabilities is suing the organization that administers the law-school admission test because he wants three times the amount of time typically allotted to complete the examination. Jared Solomon, 22, of Philadelphia, argues that he is entitled to the accommodation under the Americans With Disabilities Act. The federal law requires that private entities, such as the Law School Admissions Council in Newtown, Bucks County, that offer admission exams make the modifications necessary to make the testing fair and accessible, the suit said.

When the polls opened in Philadelphia at 7 a.m. yesterday, 49 polling places throughout the city didn't have voting machines. Although the machines eventually were delivered - in some cases more than five hours late - the delays kept many people from voting, and for a time threatened to throw the entire election into confusion. The city's Democratic Party went to court in an effort to keep the 49 polling places open past 8 p.m. to make up for lost time. The Republican Party fought to close the polls as scheduled, and the court battle lasted through the day and into the evening.

According to the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, paid employees may not do unpaid volunteer work for the same business or agency that employs them, said Thomas Johnson, a Labor Department spokesman.

NEWCASTLE, England - The coach of the U.S. women's soccer team wants her players in win-or-go-home mode. She just doesn't want them thinking too much about it. The great mental shift, familiar in major soccer tournaments everywhere, has occurred in the last couple of days at the Olympics. The group stage is done. Eight of the 12 women's teams - including all the nations predicted to be medal contenders - have advanced to the knockout stage, starting with Friday's quarterfinals. Remember how the Americans slowed down the game against North Korea on Tuesday to save their legs?

Although the biggest crop of cookbooks is usually released in the fall/holiday season to capitalize on the gift-giving market, there's a flood of new titles this spring and summer, many designed for leisurely, fun, warm-weather eating. "Cookbooks definitely go by season," said Tim Fischer, manager of Los Angeles' Cook's Library, a store stocking 6,000 to 7,000 cookbooks, memoirs, wine and food history titles, both domestic and imported. Of the 171,061 books published in the United States in 2003, 2,856 were cookbooks, according to New Jersey-based Books-In-Print.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I'm afraid I'm seriously crushing on my close friend's boyfriend, who happens to be close friends with my boyfriend. We all hang out a few times a week. My boyfriend and I have had a rough patch and so have they. I've noticed that I'm developing feelings for him and I think the feeling is mutual. We haven't said anything about it or crossed the line into inappropriate conversations; however, I feel like when we are in a group setting we just respond to each other more than anyone else.

Strath Haven center Kevin Sherry scored only four points on Friday night, but his last bucket just might have been the biggest of his career. With the score tied and a little less than 10 seconds to play in overtime, Sherry grabbed a rebound and scored on a putback to give the host Panthers a 47-45 victory over West Chester Henderson in the first round of the PIAA District 1 Class AAA boys' basketball tournament. "I was just happy to be able to get a chance to put it back," Sherry said.

Two years removed from college, Clay Harbor is back in class. The tight end is participating in his first full professional offseason this spring - he was drafted in 2010 and waited through the NFL lockout last year. The extra time with the coaches, he said, means a higher football education, and better results in the fall. In particular, Harbor wants to be a smarter blocker and a more fluid route runner. A couple of tweaks, along with extra two-tight-end packages, might pull him off the sidelines more often this season.

BOYDS, Md. — Besides the fact that some new faces were on the field, it felt as if someone popped in a video from last year. For the second year in a row, the Union was paired with D.C. United in U.S. Open Cup action and, for the second year in a row, the same nasty, dirty uber-physical match was displayed, this time in front 3,276 in attendance Tuesday night at the Maryland SoccerPlex. Instead of Sebastien Le Toux, you had Lionard Pajoy running up top. Carlos Valdes earned another red card after the dust settled on a skirmish that erupted in the 112th minute of extra time.

ALL THIS rest might kill the Sixers. Tied at 2 in their Eastern Conference semifinal, the Celtics own homecourt advantage. Both Celtics home games come off 2 days of rest. They had Saturday and Sunday off, at home, with balmy temperatures and light breeze. That's nectar for the elderly. Three of their top seven players rank in the top 14 in games played among active players: Kevin Garnett (No. 2), Ray Allen (7) and Paul Pierce (14). All three rank in the top 15 of playoff games played by active players.

NEXT TIME regulation ends in a Stanley Cup playoff game, don't change the channel or leave your seat to get a cold refreshment. You might miss the game-winner. In the playoffs, sudden-death overtime - especially in a series-clinching scenario - is the ultimate television reality show. It's just been a fleeting moment. Through 53 games, prior to Monday night's action, 18 games (34 percent) had gone to overtime. On average, overtime in those 53 games has lasted just 8:24.

HARRISBURG - The judge overseeing former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's child-sexual-abuse case on Thursday delayed the start of the trial by three weeks to early June, and prosecutors filed a lengthy court document that said the case should not be dismissed. Judge John Cleland said the extra time was needed "to accommodate various logistical contingencies that have arisen," and the Attorney General's Office supported the postponement. The prosecution's 21-page answer to a catch-all pretrial motion Sandusky's lawyer submitted a week ago said the commonwealth had "broad latitude" to establish the dates of allegations in child-sexual-abuse cases.
