Iowa State found a way to win when it wasn't at its best. Desiree Francis scored 20 points and the No. 6 Cyclones survived their worst shooting of the season and a flurry of visiting Kansas State misses late in the game to escape with a 64-61 victory last night. Iowa State (15-2, 6-0 Big 12) was not assured of its 11th consecutive victory, one shy of the school record, until a three-point shot by Kansas State's Angie Finkes from the right corner bounced off the rim at the buzzer.

Jeff Peterson led four Iowa players in double figures with 17 points and the host Hawkeyes pounded rival Iowa State, 73-57, last night. Jermain Davis added 16 points for the Hawkeyes (9-2), who opened the second half on a 25-4 run to blow open what had been a tight game.

Matt Gatens pushed Iowa's lead to 16 by cutting through the lane for a layup and hitting a pair of free throws, and Peterson followed Devan Bawinkel's 3 with a layup to make it 59-36 with 10:45 to go.

Iowa State basketball coach Larry Eustachy was suspended yesterday after acknowledging that he is an alcoholic, and the athletic director urged the school to fire him. Three hours after Eustachy said he has sought treatment but will not resign, athletic director Bruce Van De Velde held a news conference to say that Eustachy would be suspended with pay and should be replaced. Eustachy has five days to appeal to the president's office. Eustachy's admission at a news conference earlier yesterday came after photographs of him partying with college students in Missouri were published.

No. 10 Iowa State's home winning streak is no more. Brooke Reves scored 24 points, Suzi Raymant added 20 and Kansas forced 27 turnovers with a trapping, physical defense in beating Iowa State, 79-71, last night, ending the streak at 26. The Jayhawks never trailed and kept their cool despite a roaring, hostile crowd of 9,370. "It was pretty exciting," Reves said. "It's amazing to play in front of a crowd like this, that's that intense, and come away with a win. " Kansas (18-6, 9-3 Big 12)

Tracy Gahan's free throw with two seconds remaining lifted No. 8 Iowa State to a 77-76 victory over host Nebraska last night, earning coach Bill Fennelly his 100th victory with the Cyclones. Gahan, who scored 12 points, drew a foul as Nebraska's Nicole Kubik went for a steal with the game tied at 76. She made the first of two free throws before intentionally missing the second. Nebraska's Charlie Rogers got the rebound, only to throw away a pass intended for Kubik. "Actually it was kind of nerve-racking because coach was like 'Don't make it,' " said Gahan, who finished with 12 points.

Two groups of fans, one much larger than the other, were chanting "Let's go, State" at different times yesterday during the Midwest Regional basketball final at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The State that advanced in the NCAA tournament turned out to be the one from nearby East Lansing. Playing in its own backyard, with a spirited crowd of 21,214 watching and a berth in the Final Four at stake, Michigan State (30-7) earned a trip to Indianapolis by taking a 75-64 victory over Iowa State in a riveting game that went down to the last half-minute.

The magnitude of a victory might best be measured by the messages one receives on an answering machine. Bill Fennelly, coach of the Iowa State women, returned to his hotel room Saturday night, picked up his telephone and the voice on the other end said: "You have 27 messages. " Fennelly dialed his office line. "You have 30 messages. " Such is to be expected when your team records the biggest upset of the NCAA women's basketball tournament, as Fennelly's did Saturday by eliminating top-seeded Connecticut, 64-58, in a Mideast Regional semifinal, in Cincinnati.

A source close to Iowa State junior Marcus Fizer confirmed that the Big 12 player of the year will announce his intentions to declare for the draft Monday, ESPN.com reported yesterday. Fizer would become the seventh underclassman to declare for the NBA draft. The deadline to make it official is May 14. Iowa State coach Larry Eustachy, named the Associated Press Coach of the Year yesterday, wouldn't make it official but said he would encourage Fizer to enter the draft. "A lot of people said Tim Duncan stayed and Marcus should, but Tim Duncan didn't have a family and wasn't married," Eustachy said.

Iowa State's basketball team will fly to Detroit today for the next round of the NCAA Tournament - with or without coach Larry Eustachy. Eustachy does not like to fly, and he said yesterday he had not decided how he would get there. Iowa State plays UCLA Thursday night at The Palace in Auburn Hills, Mich., just outside Detroit. "As a matter of fact, I might not even go," Eustachy kidded. "I might have the flu because of who we're playing and what they did to Maryland. I feel something coming on. I might have a temperature.

The state baseball playoffs begin Monday, with 15 area teams seeking to claim gold on June 17 at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. But before the players on the diamond take center stage, let's talk some football. Specifically, the top uncommitted recruits in the Class of 2017 from Southeastern Pennsylvania - and their college possibilities. Here's our top-10 list, which is based on current abilities and potential to exceed at the next level. 1. D'Andre Swift, St. Joseph's Prep, RB. A dynamic and versatile playmaker, the 5-foot-10, 210-pounder is seriously considering scholarship offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, and Penn State.

Iowa State may not be an NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision powerhouse, but the Cyclones do play in one of the BCS conferences and do have recruiting advantages even over an elite Football Championship Subdivision program such as North Dakota State. Carson Wentz's first collegiate start came at Iowa State in front of 55,000 fans - a number significantly greater than the 19,000 that regularly fill the Fargodome to watch the Bison. It wasn't quite like Hickory High School walking into an Indianapolis arena for the state championship in Hoosiers - "I think you'll find the measurements the same as our gym back in Hickory" - but it had to be daunting for the quarterback.

SELECTION SUNDAY is 3 1/2 weeks away and while the majority of the 36-team at-large field is locked in, almost nothing else is certain. If last season's Kentucky team was playing this season, I could not imagine it losing. At this stage, I couldn't even tell you the favorite, much less predict a winner. Each of the 32 conferences gets an automatic bid. Here is a look as we roll toward March 13. America East (1) Stony Brook Jameel Warney, the 6-8 senior, has the nation's best set of career numbers for a team that has won 18 straight - 1,971 points, 1,189 rebounds, 259 blocks, 215 assists, 99 steals.

If you're still looking for a dominant college basketball team similar to last year's Kentucky group that fell two wins short of the sport's first undefeated season since Indiana in 1975-76, you may be out of luck. The parity in college basketball this season is as rampant as it's ever been. Five teams have held down the No. 1 position in the Associated Press poll - preseason and in the 12 polls conducted since competition began in mid-November. In addition, 13 teams have occupied a spot in the top five for at least one week.

THE DEVELOPMENT of Steve Vasturia took another step over the weekend when he helped Notre Dame win its first ACC Tournament championship. They were doing the jig all over Tobacco Road after the Irish beat Duke and North Carolina on consecutive nights. Vasturia, a sophomore from St. Joseph's Prep, performed well enough that he became the first city leagues player to be named to the ACC's all-tournament team since Duke's Gerald Henderson (Episcopal) in 2009. Jerian Grant is Notre Dame's best player, but Vasturia is a solid contributor with a wonderful basketball IQ. "He's a special kid. He sees a pass ahead [of the play]

TEMPLE'S FOOTBALL team learned a lot of harsh lessons last season. None was harder than a one-point loss to FCS Fordham at home in the third game on a Hail Mary pass at the buzzer. It didn't matter that Fordham would win its first 10 and make it to the second round of the playoffs before losing to eventual national runner-up Towson. You know what they say about perceptions. It's one thing to lose on two other long, late passes against Rutgers and Central Florida. And squander 21-point leads against SMU and Connecticut.

At the time, James Bell suggested on Twitter, it was just saying the right thing in the moment, a few polite words. Walking off the court after Connecticut had taken Villanova out of the NCAA tournament, the 'Nova senior said to UConn guard Shabazz Napier, "Win it all. " Late Monday night, Bell tweeted out, "I'm fine with losing to them now cuz they did !! !!" UConn, of course, also took out St. Joseph's in overtime before beating Villanova, after trailing both by double digits.
