Indiana coach Bob Knight thought his team's coaching was superb. Then again, he wasn't the one doing it. Knight made an early exit with two technical fouls in the second half and No. 14 Indiana immediately began its comeback from an 11-point deficit that ended with an 87-83 overtime victory over visiting Ohio State last night. "As the game wore on, particularly in the last 16 of 17 minutes of the game, I thought the Indiana coaching got a lot better," Knight said. "I thought the officiating must have been better, also.

- Temple's road to the Final Four took an unexpected turn yesterday. It was generally expected that the Owls, should they make the third round, would be facing Indiana (No. 19 UPI), the defending national champion. Forget it. The Hoosiers' title defense lasted all of 40 minutes, as they fell to underappreciated Richmond, 72-69, at the Civic Center. Tomorrow, in Round 2, Richmond (25-6) will take on Georgia Tech, a team it defeated, 73-67, in December in Atlanta. "We wanted not just to get to the NCAAs, but to win a couple of games," said guard Rodney Rice.

If the truth be known, most people don't know Seton Hall from Monty Hall. That's what happens when you're located in the basketball hotbed of South Orange, N.J. So what if the Pirates survived the Big East wars and were one of only four teams to defeat Georgetown this season? They were still labeled a Cinderella. Just a year ago, a chorus of leatherlungs called for coach P.J. Carlesimo's head. Maybe now, people will start taking him seriously. Indiana will. Last night, the Pirates rumbled past the Hoosiers, 78-65, in a West Regional semifinal.

The Indiana Pacers can no longer be called perennial first-round failures. The Pacers pulled off a surprising sweep of the visiting Orlando Magic with a 99-86 victory last night in the third game of the best-of-five series. It was Indiana's first playoff series victory since the team joined the NBA in 1976. Previous first-round losses were to New York (1993), Boston (1991, 1992), Detroit (1990), Atlanta (1987) and the Sixers (1981). "I never imagined a sweep," Pacers coach Larry Brown said.

Former Indiana coach Bob Knight continues to call university officials "deceitful" four months after he was fired. In the March issue of Playboy magazine, Knight says his only regret is not leaving Indiana sooner. "I talked to some people and almost without exception they told me to leave," Knight said in a 12-page interview due to hit newsstands Feb. 5. "What I did in this situation was think about the wrong things. When I quit coaching, I envisioned being able to stay around the university, to help in any way they asked.

Draymond Green tried to clinch the Big Ten title by himself last night. He needed more help. Cody Zeller scored 18 points, Victor Oladipo had 13 and Christian Watford finished with 10 points and a career-high 14 rebounds, leading No. 18 Indiana past No. 5 Michigan State 70-55, the host Hoosiers' third win this season over a top five team. "We just didn't defend well and that's something that has been a mark of this team all year, and that's why we've had so much success," Spartans coach Tom Izzo said.

Indiana doesn't want to play here. Arizona owns the home court but can't play here. George Mason won't play here long. Southwest Missouri State's student manager would love to play here. Welcome to the wild, wild West. The West Regional actually opens today with four first-round games at Boise, Idaho. Because of the NCAA's no-home-court rule, top-seeded Arizona (27-3) couldn't play at its own McKale Center in Tucson. The Wildcats, seeking to make their second consecutive trip to the Final Four from the West, open at 2:07 p.m. against 16th-seeded Robert Morris (21-8)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - For weeks, Penn State coach James Franklin has talked about being more aggressive on offense, taking more shots downfield, and being less conservative in play-calling. In Saturday's 29-7 win over Indiana at Beaver Stadium, the Lions finally did it. The game plan didn't always work out, with quarterback Christian Hackenberg not always connecting with his intended downfield receiver. But the wideouts appeared more confident and energized on the field. It was a marked improvement from the unit's dismal performance in last week's 20-14 win over Army.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Christian Hackenberg took the snap from the Indiana 5-yard line and dropped back, but instead of hanging in the pocket until he found a receiver, he started to run up the middle. When he got to the 1, he launched himself over a would-be tackler and over the goal line for a Penn State touchdown. "When he dove, I was thinking to myself: 'Is this man crazy?' " said running back Nick Scott, who was on the field for the score. Hackenberg, the 6-foot-4, 228-pound junior, showed Saturday he could produce touchdowns with his legs as well as his right arm. He passed for two touchdowns, ran for two more scores, and carried the Nittany Lions (5-1, 2-0)

One of Indiana's strongest defenders, tackle Darius Latham, has had fewer opportunities to show his skills this season. He was suspended for the first game of the season, and, after being served a separate, indefinite suspension pending a proceeding with a university ethics office, it remains uncertain whether Latham will take the field against Penn State Saturday in Happy Valley. His loss hasn't been the best news for a Hoosiers defense that is ranked 71st in rushing yards allowed and 97th in points allowed in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

After its attempt to tie, or maybe even defeat, top-ranked Ohio State at the end of regulation Saturday fell 9 yards short, Indiana gets to bounce back against Penn State Saturday at Beaver Stadium. Which prompts the question: Can the Hoosiers bounce back? "To me, we haven't accomplished much," Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said Monday at his weekly news conference. "There's a lot of football to play. I think there's a lot of fight in this team. There's opportunities for guys to step up. I think our team has that mentality.

Three generation of Mortons, ranging in age from 4 to nearly 73, boarded a bus in Gary, Ind., about 7 a.m. Thursday and arrived in South Jersey in the wee hours Friday. The trip was close to 800 miles. They'd come to see Pope Francis. "Oooh, it was long," said Roxanne Morton, 45, a domestic violence shelter director, who had her little son, Royal, with her. But the Mortons weren't really complaining. "He's a holy man; he's so humble," she said. "His message is, we're here to take care of each other.

The Penn men's golf team had to wait until near the end of the Golf Channel's NCAA selection show Monday to find out where it would play its regional of the NCAA Division I championships, leading coach Bob Heintz to sweat a little bit. "I was getting nervous thinking they were figuring out a way to keep us out," Heintz joked. The Quakers, with an automatic bid for winning the Ivy League, were assigned to the regional at the Sagamore Club in Noblesville, Ind. Temple junior Brandon Matthews also had to wait, but he will make a return visit to the regionals as an individual competitor, heading to The Course at Yale in New Haven, Conn.

It didn't take long for the uproar over religious-freedom laws in Indiana and Arkansas to reverberate in Pennsylvania. Democrats, including Gov. Wolf, grabbed onto the controversy this week to bolster their bid for a state ban on discrimination against members of the LGBT community. The proposal would make it illegal for businesses to fire workers or deny customers because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. It would also offer protections beyond antidiscrimination measures already passed by more than 30 municipalities, including Philadelphia, Haverford, Abington, and New Hope.

TO GIVE YOU an idea of how influential sports have become in this nation's fractionalized and petty political discourse, just look at the timeline since Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed Senate Bill 101 into law last Thursday. Apple CEO Tim Cook, who is openly gay, condemned the law, known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The CEO of Salesforce, the billion-dollar tech company, did as well, Marc Benioff saying he would halt plans to expand into the state. Angie's List announced it, too, was canceling a $40 million expansion of its Indianapolis headquarters, a move that was to add 1,000 jobs.

  #BOYCOTTIndiana. It's all the rage. Indiana's 20th-century way of thinking has garnered the forces of social media to push back quickly and punitively. Say hello to the 21st century, Indiana. It's a time and place that frowns upon discriminatory, bigoted and homophobic legislation. Miley Cyrus is saying potty-mouth words about Gov. Mike Pence on Instagram. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is threatening to pull its biennial convention, scheduled for 2017, out of the state.
