WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - It was a simple running play, the same kind Penn State defensive tackle Jordan Hill has chased down hundreds of times before. But when the 6-foot-1, 292-pound senior and all-Big Ten candidate didn't get up after the second-quarter play, a half-full Ross-Ade Stadium felt that all the air had been removed from the visitors' sideline. Hill, who could barely put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off, was thought to have sprained his left knee. An MRI is pending, but his teammates were encouraged when talking to Hill, who returned to the sideline in the second half after his initial examination.

Jordan Hill benefited last season when fellow defensive tackle Devon Still received all the double-team attention that Penn State's opponents could throw at him. Now it's Hill's turn. The Nittany Lions' 6-foot-1, 292-pound senior finds himself encountering two blockers on virtually every snap. Running plays tend to flow away from him. But he knows there's a positive in all the trouble he must endure. "When they game-plan to double-team me, it's a good thing because it has to leave somebody open," Hill said this week.

Paul George had 29 points and 11 rebounds, and the Pacers held Miami to a season-low point total in an 87-77 win over the Heat on Tuesday night in Indianapolis. George made four three-pointers to get the best of his matchup with LeBron James, David West added 14 points and 11 rebounds, and Lance Stephenson chipped in with 13 points for the Pacers (21-14), who have won 11 of their last 13 games. It was the first time the teams had met since Miami beat the Pacers in six games in the conference semifinals last year.

STATE COLLEGE - The injury bug seems to be the Nittany Lions' weeklong opponent. As Penn State (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten) readies for its last road game of the season, Saturday against the Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-1), the Lions could be without two of their star players - senior defensive tackle Jordan Hill (knee) and redshirt freshman tight end Kyle Carter (foot). Meanwhile, running back Curtis Dukes (head), who generally sees time on special teams, is out. At his weekly news conference on Tuesday, coach Bill O'Brien said both Hill and Carter are day-to-day.

Texas A & M freshman DeAndre Jordan has been good on offense all season. Last night, he finally got it together on defense. Jordan had 14 points and eight rebounds, leading the 14th-ranked Aggies (10-1) to a 79-39 victory over Detroit. It was their third straight victory. "I thought DeAndre Jordan played his best game since he's been here," A & M coach Mark Turgeon said. Jordan, who leads the nation in field goal percentage, missed only the last of his eight shots. He is 46-of-58 (79.3 percent)

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - When Penn State began the 2012 season with back-to-back defeats, it was given little chance of finishing Bill O'Brien's first season with a .500 record. But somehow the Nittany Lions managed to turn their fortunes around, cobble together a five-game winning streak, and finish 8-4 after Saturday's 24-21 overtime win over Wisconsin. Their 6-2 record in the Big Ten enabled them to finish second in the Leaders Division, ahead of the Badgers, who will play in next week's conference championship game.

Deion Barnes showed considerable talent last season as a first-year defensive end at Penn State, finishing in the top five of the Big Ten with six sacks and being named the conference's freshman of the year. Now the North Philadelphia native thinks he can be a better football player in 2013 because he's more aware of what his colleagues on the defensive line are doing, and getting better at reading opposing offenses. "I'm doing better recognizing offenses and playing together as a unit on the defensive line because you need your inside guys, you need your other guys to be successful," the 6-foot-4, 244-pound Barnes, a former Northeast High star, said Saturday after the Blue-White Game at Beaver Stadium.

AS FAR AS losses go, this one actually wasn't so bad for the 76ers, in the grand scheme of things. While coach Brett Brown and the players don't want to hear the talk of jockeying for draft position, the 113-111 overtime loss to the visiting Los Angeles Lakers benefited the Sixers in a couple of ways. They dropped to 18-57 on the season, keeping them planted with the third-worst record in the NBA. The third-worst team has a 15.6 percent chance of earning the top pick in the draft lottery.

Angelo Mangiro left Roxbury (N.J.) High School as a four-star offensive lineman in football and a 3.5 student in the classroom. Other than a few struggles with reading and writing, the Penn State-bound Mangiro had little reason to believe something was holding him back from learning. That's why he was more than a bit surprised when, after taking a series of routine placement exams given to incoming students and some followup tests, he was diagnosed with dyslexia. Mangiro refused to let that slow him down, however.

During his July basketball camp at the University of California at Santa Barbara, Kobe Bryant took a break from teaching the triangle offense to all those open-mouthed kids for a consequential conversation with his old coach and confidant, Gregg Downer. Bryant was turning 36 in less than two months, and last November he had signed a two-year extension with the Los Angeles Lakers that was worth $48.5 million and that ran through the 2015-16 season. Downer, the head coach at Lower Merion High School, had flown to the West Coast to volunteer as a counselor at the camp, and maybe it took the presence of a trusted mentor and friend for Bryant to confess the truth: Come the expiration of that contract, he told Downer, there would be no hanging on, no reconsidering, no seeking a trade to another team.

STATE COLLEGE - Barely a mile from Penn State's football building there's an eatery with a neon sign and fleet of delivery cars that beckons college students to enjoy its sauce-glazed, deep-fried specialties. The sign read "Wings Over Happy Valley" and the establishment has become a hit among students as a convenient, yet unhealthy way to fill their stomachs. But in the last year, it has lost one of its biggest customers - literally. Standing 6-3, DaQuan Jones anchors Penn State's defensive line at tackle, and this season he is doing so in a sleeker frame.

Last offseason, the Houston Rockets were an afterthought, a young team with little star power. Now, after trading for James Harden just before this past season and adding Dwight Howard on Friday, Houston is suddenly primed to contend sooner than almost anybody expected. Still, Houston general manager Daryl Morey knows nabbing Howard is only the first step in a long process for his team. "We haven't accomplished anything yet, but we're putting something pretty cool together, I think," Morey said in an interview with Comcast SportsNet Houston.

Rutgers defensive back Logan Ryan was chosen by the New England Patriots with the 21st pick of the third round in Friday's NFL draft. The Patriots acquired the pick from the Minnesota Vikings, and Ryan joined former Rutgers teammates Devin McCourty and Justin Francis with the Patriots. "I feel great about things," Ryan said in a phone interview. "I did [think New England might take him]. I didn't know when, but I knew they needed a corner. " New England was one of the teams that met with Ryan leading up to the draft.

NEW YORK - The household names in Thursday's first round of the NFL draft will be offensive linemen, a rare occurrence that speaks to both the lack of glamour players this season and the quality of linemen. The first pick will be made by former Eagles coach Andy Reid, now the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. Reid is expected to take Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, a 6-foot-6, 306-pound left tackle. Central Michigan's Eric Fisher is also a possibility for the No. 1 pick and almost assuredly will be a top-five pick.
