Three weeks ago, the last time Syracuse played a game at Washington's Verizon Center, the Orange lost their Big East regular-season finale against host Georgetown, 61-39, their fourth loss in five games. They return Thursday night to face top-seed Indiana (29-6) in the Sweet 16. Since that disappointing loss to the Hoyas, Syracuse (28-9) has won five of its last six games and joins Indiana, No. 2 Miami, and No. 3 Marquette to form the only group of 1 through 4 seeds left in any NCAA regional this year.

Shane Larkin hit a go-ahead three-pointer with a minute left and Miami gained possession on a ball knocked out of bounds that probably should have gone to Illinois to help the Hurricanes hold on for a 63-59 victory Sunday night in Austin, Texas, to advance to the NCAA round of 16. After Larkin's first field goal in about 91/2 minutes, D.J. Richardson missed a three-pointer. In the fight for the rebound, the ball appeared to ricochet off the hands of Miami's Kenny Kadji out of bounds.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The first sign that things are different now for Ja'Quan Newton is his attire. He arrived to a media session on Wednesday wearing warm-up pants and a T-shirt - not his normal January winter wardrobe.

Louisville and coach Rick Pitino agreed in principle to a 4-year contract extension yesterday that will keep him on the sideline through the 2016-17 season. Pitino hopes the extension ends what he called unfounded speculation that he is considering leaving the Cardinals in pursuit of another job. "My moving days have long been over," Pitino said. "I've been here 9 years. It feels like 9 days. Now I'm going to be able to end this career at the place I want to end it at. " Financial details have yet to be worked out, and the deal needs to be approved by the university's athletic association.

VANDER BLUE'S buzzer-beater came at the end of the first half. For a change, Marquette didn't need one at the end of the game. After sweating through a pair of edge-of-your-seat comebacks in the NCAA Tournament, Blue and the Golden Eagles figured out how to put one away early, earning Marquette's first trip to the Elite Eight since 2003 with a 71-61 win over Miami on Thursday night in Washington. Blue, who spurred the rallies that beat Davidson by one and Butler by two, finished with 14 points.

SOME STORIES just need to be passed along in as many forums as possible. It doesn't matter if there is no real connection to your area of coverage or typical daily content. Some stories are so good that as many people as possible need to be made aware of them, just because they are the type of stories that make our world a little bit brighter. We had one of those in our region on Friday night when Rowan University pitcher Richie Suarez was named winner of the 2015 Most Courageous Athlete Award at the 111th Philadelphia Sports Writers Association annual dinner.

WASHINGTON - Yelps of support and echoing applause greeted the voice booming over the loudspeakers Wednesday at the scheduled start of practice for the East Regional's fourth seed: "Coached by Jim Boeheim, please welcome the Syracuse Orange!" And . . . nothing. No sign of Boeheim or any of his players. Not until 6 1/2 minutes later did they finally make their way onto the court they'll return to Thursday night to face No. 1 seed Indiana in the NCAA Tournament's round of 16. Syracuse never really did show up the last time it played a game at this arena: The Orange lost its Big East regular-season finale 3 weeks ago against host Georgetown, 61-39, their fewest points since December 1962 and fourth loss in five games.
