You can't go home again? Chris Herren never heard the news. The Fall River, Mass., native made his homecoming special, scoring a career-high 25 points last night as No. 16 Fresno State beat host Massachusetts, 102-81, to become the first non-Atlantic 10 team to win in the Mullins Center. The Bulldogs (6-1) also scored the most points by an opponent in the Mullins Center, which opened during the 1992-93 season. Herren attended Boston College out of high school, but injured his wrist and played in only one game there before transferring to Fresno State.

Two more head coaching jobs were filled yesterday when Maryland and Fresno State announced hirings. Ron Vanderlinden, an assistant coach who helped revive moribund programs at Colorado and Northwestern, was hired to do the same thing at Maryland. Vanderlinden, the defensive coordinator at Northwestern since 1992, will be introduced as the Terrapins' head coach at a news conference today. He replaces Mark Duffner, who was dismissed after a 20-35 record in five years. At Fresno State, Baltimore Ravens assistant Pat Hill was named as the successor to his former boss, Jim Sweeney.

Fresno State is investigating reports that several members of the basketball team received free meals from a local restaurant, even after the owner was warned such handouts could violate NCAA rules. Ted Kunishige, owner of Tomodachi Japanese Restaurant and a basketball booster regularly seen at Selland Arena games, admitted to the Fresno Bee last week he had given away "several thousand dollars" worth of free food to the players during the past seven years. Seniors Larry Abney and Terrance Roberson confirmed they ate free meals at Kunishige's restaurant during their college careers, the newspaper reported.

New Mexico's Charles Smith took a bite out of the Shark. Smith, who had 29 points, scored twice in the last minute as New Mexico (26-4) outlasted Fresno State for a 104-99 triple-overtime victory last night in the Western Athletic Conference semifinals in Albuquerque, N.M. The contest was tied, 74-74, at the end of regulation, 83-83 after the first overtime and, after Smith hit three foul shots with three seconds left in the second overtime,...

The faculty at Fresno State will vote in two weeks on a resolution introduced by professor John Shields that seeks a code of conduct for student-athletes. The action was sparked by the recruitment of a convicted spouse abuser and accusations that two athletes fought with former girlfriends. Shields criticized school administrators and coaches of an "overly tolerant attitude toward student-athlete antisocial behavior and criminal conduct. " "I think the time has come for serious action to occur on this campus to clean up the mess in athletics," Shields said.

Chris Herren made his point at the end. Switched from off guard to point in the late going, Herren drove to three baskets in succession, including the go-ahead score on a putback, and Fresno State beat Pacific, 73-70, in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament last night. "Herren became more assertive down the stretch when we switched him to the point," Fresno State coach Jerry Tarkanian said. "That gave us four shooters in there. " Herren's first basket of the second half came after the move to the point.

Michigan State's chances of reaching its third consecutive Final Four looked a lot better by the time the second round of the NCAA tournament ended yesterday. The defending-champion Spartans, already accorded a fairly easy road through the preliminary rounds, have a path before them now that looks wide and inviting. What makes it look particularly favorable is the way Michigan State played yesterday, cranking out an impressive effort at both ends of the court to outdistance Fresno State, 81-65, at the Pyramid.

After last season at Fresno State, Jerry Tarkanian thought he might be ready to hang up his towel. Maybe return to his radio show and his TV commentary and his coveted spot as a judge in the Miss Hawaiian Tropic contest. All in all, not a bad life. "I enjoyed it," Tarkanian said. But now Tark, in town for his 18th-ranked Bulldogs' game against No. 20 Temple tonight, finds himself enjoying coaching again. His team last season was a disappointment, and he didn't think the players worked hard enough.

Dan Gadzuric shook off the effects of a sprained ankle to score 22 points and grab 17 rebounds as 24th-ranked UCLA upset No. 8 Arizona, 79-77, in overtime last night in Los Angeles. Earl Watson hit a three-pointer and Gadzuric scored two big baskets in overtime, but the Wildcats still had a chance. UCLA led by 79-77 when Jason Gardner fouled Gadzuric, whose first free throw was an air ball. After a time-out, Gadzuric missed the second. He then fouled Richard Jefferson, who missed both free throws but grabbed the rebound and missed again as time expired.

Jim Sweeney sounded like a coach who felt his team didn't belong. The Fresno State coach made it pretty clear who he thinks will win when his Bulldogs and No. 20 Ohio State meet in tonight's Pigskin Classic (Channel 57, 9 o'clock) in Anaheim, Calif. "They're a lot better, a lot bigger, a lot stronger, a lot more mature, a lot more confident, play a much tougher schedule and have many more people back than played for them last year," Sweeney said yesterday. And losing defensive tackle Dan "Big Daddy" Wilkinson, the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, shouldn't hurt the Buckeyes, either, Sweeney said.

IT'S CHAMPIONSHIP weekend, finally. The closing photo op for any team that's still in contention for one of the four spots in the first FBS playoff, where the most pertinent quandary seems to be whether there's any scenario in which the selection committee would actually find a way to leave out defending national champion Florida State - the lone unbeaten and winner of 28 straight - even if it wins yet one more of those too-close games against four-point...

The Crimson Tide and Seminoles are still on course to meet in the final BCS championship game if they can stay unbeaten.

ONE MONTH in, and 20 teams remain unbeaten. Some, of course, were more expected than others. So by no means are they created equal. The ACC and Pac-12 have the most with four apiece. Clemson and Florida State, OK. But Miami was 7-5 in 2012, and Maryland was 4-8. Maryland is at FSU this week. Miami is probably a home win over Georgia Tech away from getting to 7-0 by the time it goes to FSU early next month. Is it too early to start thinking wide left? On the West Coast you've got Oregon and Stanford.

Virginia Tech is honoring the school shooting victims in Newtown, Conn., with decals on players' helmets as it prepares for its bowl game, ESPN.com reported. The Hokies will play Rutgers on Friday in the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando. The Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in which 20 children and six faculty members died, was the second-deadliest school shooting in the country. The deadliest was April 16, 2007, on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, where a gunman killed 32 people and wounded 17 others.

OLDER PLAYERS who have taken different routes to college football have become mentors in Atlantic Coast Conference locker rooms that are filled with teenagers who have known only football. The value of players such as Clemson receiver Daniel Rodriguez or North Carolina defensive tackle Sylvester Williams is about more than what they do on the field. They're the kind of players coaches want for their maturity and leadership regardless of whether they start every game or play sparingly.

The group of six players coming to town today to work out for the Sixers in advance of the NBA draft has changed. Dayton's Chris Wright is no longer among the six, and has been replaced by Arkansas' Delvon Johnson, a power forward who stands 6-7, 220. Johnson averaged 9.6 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks last season for the Razorbacks. He is considered more of a defensive force than an offensive player. Johnson played two seasons for the Hogs. He began at Western Illionis and then spent 1 year in junior college before transferring.
