Tates Locke, head coach at Indiana State since 1989, was fired yesterday after a 4-22 season. He became the fifth coach in two days to lose his job, either by firing or resignation. Locke's 1993-94 team was the school's worst in his five years. The Sycamores failed to reach the Missouri Valley Conference tournament field and finished tied for last in the 10-team league. "Coach Locke and his staff have worked hard for Indiana State, but the situation has reached a point where we feel we need new direction for the basketball program," said a statement by ISU athletic director Brian Faison.

Rotimi Alakija, a sophomore forward for the Indiana State basketball team, died yesterday shortly after collapsing during practice in Terre Haute, Ind. The cause of death for Alakija, 21, a Nigerian, was not immediately known. Vigo County coroner David Ferguson said an autopsy would be scheduled at the Indiana University Medical Center in Indianapolis. Basketball coach Ron Greene was trying to contact the player's mother and grandmother, his legal guardians, in Nigeria, and could not be reached for comment.

Villanova coach Rollie Massimino received a bit of bad news in an otherwise outstanding recruiting year yesterday, when 6-9 Townsend Harris, of Palatka, Fla., signed with Indiana State. Harris had narrowed his list to Indiana State, Mississippi, Florida, Villanova and Louisville. Villanova and Florida were believed to be the frontrunners, with Louisville devoting much of its attention to Chris Lovelace, a 6-10 1/2 forward from Fort Wayne, Ind., who signed with Temple. The Wildcats did make it official yesterday with Marc Dowdell, a 6-9 all- state forward from Christian Brothers Academy in Lincroft, N.J. Dowdell previously had given Villanova an oral commitment.

Kelyn Block's reward for leading Indiana State to another of this year's first-round upsets in the NCAA Tournament was an emergency trip to the dentist. The junior had three teeth either knocked out or chipped late in regulation, then found a way to help the 13th-seeded Sycamores (22-11) beat No. 4 Oklahoma, 70-68, in overtime yesterday in the South Regional. Block scored five of his 17 points in overtime after he dramatically returned from the locker room just before the tipoff of the extra period.

A VERY WISE person once said that things are never quite as bright as they sometimes appear to be, nor as bleak. That philosophy - life rarely is lived at either extreme, but usually somewhere in between - is likely to be certified by the Penn State Nittany Lions, whose first two games of the 2011 season represent perhaps the greatest distance any team must travel, in terms of quality-testing, of any team in the country, even though both will...

Stephen Bardo scored 14 of his 16 points in the first half to help Illinois (No. 7 AP and UPI) trounce Indiana State, 93-59, in the Illini Classic at Champaign, Ill. Illinois' Kendall Gill led all scorers with 19 points as the Fighting Illini dominated both ends of the court. Indiana State frequently coughed up the ball when Illinois (4-0) turned up the full-court pressure. The Illini had their way with the Sycamores (2-4) for all 40 minutes. Every eligible Illinois player picked up playing time, including the four walk-ons.

CHASE TAPLEY thinks Indiana State gave No. 18 San Diego State its toughest test of the season. Now he hopes it pushes the Aztecs forward as they look toward Mountain West play and a possible NCAA Tournament berth. "We need games like that for later on," said Tapley, who scored 13 points as the Aztecs (11-1) beat Indiana State, 62-55, despite poor free-throw and three-point shooting. "It gives us good experience. " Jamaal Franklin had 19 points and 15 rebounds to lead San Diego State to the finals of the Diamond Head Classic tournament, set for Tuesday.

STEPHFON GREEN, Penn State's fifth-year senior tailback, was charged Tuesday with four misdemeanor counts of furnishing alcohol to two minors, according to court documents. Sources also indicate that sophomore Rob Bolden will start for the 23rd-ranked Nittany Lions in tomorrow's game against No. 3 Alabama, with Matt McGloin also slated to see extensive playing time. Green, who had been booted from the team before preseason practice began on Aug. 4 for an unspecified violation of team rules, then reinstated by coach Joe Paterno 9 days before last week's season opener against Indiana State, was cited for an incident that allegedly took place on July 15. According to the state police's Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, Green was observed by an officer accepting money from the two minors at the state liquor store on North Atherton Street in State College.

INDIANAPOLIS - Here are my suggestions as you get set to watch Kentucky try for 40-0 at the Final Four. Ignore the slogans: "one and done," "succeed and proceed," "players' first program. " Forget what you remember of John Calipari at Massachusetts. Don't get caught up in the morality play that some of these players are not really students or at least not for long. Look at college basketball at the top levels in 2015 the way it should be looked at - as a big business. The Kentucky coach recognized that when he got the highest-pressure job in the game and created a model that is built for short-term students and long-term success.

In this space last week, we thought Syracuse would suffer its first loss of 2013-14 before Wichita State did because of its difficult road schedule. But never in our wildest dreams did we see downtrodden Boston College, a team that had defeated one Division I squad (Virginia Tech) since Nov. 26, going into the Carrier Dome and recording the shocker of the season. Now the schedule really gets tough for Syracuse, which must play its next three at Duke, at Maryland, and at Virginia. "We can't think about" the loss, Orange coach Jim Boeheim said.

MY GUESS is this goes back to 1979 when Indiana State was unbeaten all the way to the national championship game. By then, college basketball was starting to become a national sport and, with that, came the prejudice against the terrific unbeaten or near-unbeaten team from a non-power conference. Larry Bird's team had doubters all the way to the game against Michigan State. The great 1989-90 La Salle team could never crack the Top 10 even though it lost only once in the regular season and three of its starters eventually played in the NBA. Two years ago, Murray State was 23-0 and was No. 9 in the poll.

Trevor Cooney scored 21 points, Tyler Ennis added 17 points and eight assists, and No. 4 Syracuse beat Indiana, 69-52, in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Tuesday night in Syracuse, N.Y. Syracuse (8-0) has won 46 consecutive nonconference games at home, and there was no love lost in this rematch from last season's East Regional semifinal won handily by the Orange. Indiana (6-2) was called for two flagrant fouls, the second coming in the second half as the game was slipping away. Syracuse used a 25-4 surge to break open a tie game.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The constant uncertainty about Penn State's quarterback situation tends to dominate discussions about its offense, but the 84-year-old bespectacled eyes of Joe Paterno can slice through the clutter to find other problems. When running down his checklist on that side of the football earlier this week, Paterno praised what he called an improving pass game, but expressed concern about the rushing game and the play of his offensive line. "No, I'm not satisfied with our running game," the head coach lamented.

Sources indicate that sophomore Rob Bolden will start for the 23rd-ranked Nittany Lions in Saturday's game against No. 3 Alabama, with Matt McGloin also slated to see extensive playing time. Bolden got the start against Indiana State, although he essentially split the snaps with McGloin. In only his second career start, on Sept. 11, 2010, at Alabama, Bolden struggled in completing 13 of 29 passes for 144 yards and two interceptions in a 24-3 defeat. "I want to get them back so bad," Bolden said of his plans for some personal payback against Alabama after the Lions had dusted off the ISU Sycamores, 41-7.

Joe Paterno isn't the only coach involved in Saturday's football game at Beaver Stadium who is undecided on a starting quarterback. Alabama coach Nick Saban is conducting the same type of debate within his coaching staff and suggested Monday that both of his quarterbacks will play for the No. 2 Crimson Tide in their contest against the Nittany Lions. Redshirt sophomore AJ McCarron had the better numbers - 14 completions in 23 attempts for 226 yards and a touchdown - in the Tide's 48-7 victory Saturday over Kent State.
