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)

RICHMOND, Ind. - Nicholas Peter Zizzamia, a Villanova University senior who could not hide his sadness from the world, once told a pal he would someday vanish without a trace. Nearly four decades after the 22-year-old music fan left his Cherry Hill home and never returned, a diligent township detective came to believe he'd finally tracked Zizzamia down, in the person of a "John Doe" who had slit his wrist in a Richmond motel room a week after the melancholy young man's May 12, 1979, disappearance.

As the chattering analysts of cable were digesting the Acela primary blowout last week, Republicans Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were already working Indiana turf. That state's Tuesday primary now looms as the we-are-not-kidding-this-time last chance for the GOP establishment to stop the reality TV star and force a contested convention in Cleveland. But that goal receded a bit further after Trump's wins last week in Pennsylvania and four other Northeastern states set up what looks more and more like a battle with Democrat Hillary Clinton for the White House.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz apparently have reached an agreement to combine forces against front-runner Donald Trump in coming Republican presidential primaries. In nearly simultaneous statements Sunday night, Cruz's campaign agreed not to contest Oregon and New Mexico, where Kasich is doing well, and to concentrate on the May 3 Indiana primary, where the conservative favorite Cruz is running just behind Trump in polls. "To ensure that we nominate a Republican who can unify the Republican Party and win in November, our campaign will focus its time and resources in Indiana and in turn clear the path for Gov. Kasich to compete in Oregon and New Mexico, and we would hope that allies of both campaigns would follow our lead, Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe said in a statement.

NORTH CAROLINA rolled its way into a Sweet 16 matchup against Indiana by methodically pounding teams down low with a plethora of 6-10-ish space eaters. It is no wonder Roy Williams' club made only 5.4 threes during the regular season and only 11 in their first two games of this year's tournament. So naturally, before the first half was even half over, the Tar Heels had made all five of their three attempts, four by guard Marcus Paige. This is, after all, March Madness 2016, where anything can and has happened.

North Carolina keys The No. 1 priority is stopping Indiana point guard Yogi Ferrell, the second-team all-America and unanimous All-Big Ten selection. He is averaging 17.1 points and 5.6 assists and hits 41.9 percent from beyond the arc. What North Carolina must do is stop his dribble penetration because, when Ferrell gets in the lane, he is an adept finisher. If he is double-teamed, he's skilled enough to hit the open man. Nobody will have a greater responsibility in this game then covering Ferrell.

After last season, following Indiana's opening loss to Wichita State in the NCAA tournament, guard Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell contemplated bypassing what would be his final year in college for the NBA. Following deep deliberation, Ferrell, a 6-foot senior point guard, believed he had unfinished business in college. That is why Ferrell will arrive Friday at the Wells Fargo Center, hoping to steer No. 5-seeded Indiana to an upset over No. 1 North Carolina (30-6) in an NCAA tournament Sweet 16 matchup.

Marcus Paige's 21 points in North Carolina's 101-86 win over Indiana on Friday put him ahead of Michael Jordan on the Tar Heels' all-time scoring list. When the senior was told of this accomplishment, Paige mentioned how Jordan's points came in three seasons. "Shut up," coach Roy Williams responded. "Your name's going to be ahead of Michael Jordan in something. Just take that and appreciate it. " Paige also ensured that his final game would not end against the Hoosiers, like Jordan's did in the East Regional in 1984.

Indiana Jones is returning to theaters with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. And he's going to be enjoying senior matinee discounts. The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that the fifth film in the action adventure series will open July 19, 2019. The last Indiana Jones movie was 2008's poorly received Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull , which costarred Shia LaBeouf as Indiana's son. It followed a nearly 20-year gap in the franchise after 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade . In that film, Indy's father, Henry, was played by Sean Connery . He was 59 at the time.

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)
