Nicole Ohlde had 21 points in her final regular-season home game, and eighth-ranked Kansas State beat No. 9 Texas Tech, 85-73, last night in Manhattan, Kan., for a share of the Big Twelve championship.

Ell Roberson is ready to lead No. 16 Kansas State again. After a 3-week layoff with an injured left wrist, the quarterback will return for Saturday's game against No. 13 Texas. "I knew that I was probably going to be back for this game," Roberson said yesterday. "All of my mental focus has been on Texas. " Roberson was hurt in the first half of a 55-14 win over McNeese State on Sept. 6. Kansas State never has discussed the injury in detail. Coach Bill Snyder said yesterday that Roberson has shown few signs of rust from the layoff.

SINCE FLORIDA lost, you knew there was going to be a new No. 2 in the BCS standings behind Alabama. It was merely a matter of who. And the winner, at least for the time being, is Kansas State. Which makes sense, since the Wildcats were third last week, after jumping a spot over Oregon, and beating nationally ranked Texas Tech at home by a bunch. Notre Dame, which won by 17 at Oklahoma, also moved up one to third. Oregon, which is second in both polls that are used, is fourth because it's not liked as much by the computers.

The St. Joseph's women shook off their first-half jitters and used hounding defense and Amy Facer's long-distance shooting to decimate 10th-seeded Kansas State, 70-52, in a first-round NCAA tournament game at the University of Alabama. Down by two points early in the second half, the Hawks used a 10-0 run to take a 38-30 lead with 16 minutes, 50 seconds left. But Kansas State answered with two consecutive baskets. Facer, a senior guard, coolly hit two straight three-pointers and St. Joe's dominated the rest of the way. "That may have been the turning point, but I wasn't thinking about it," Facer said.

The consensus was Los Angeles. The reality is South Bend, Ind. The majority of La Salle's basketball players had wanted to play their first-round NCAA game at UCLA, a place they had never visited. Instead, they will play Kansas State, a team La Salle has never played, at Notre Dame, where the Explorer seniors have played twice. La Salle (24-9), seeded 13th in the Midwest Regional, will play fourth- seeded and 20th-ranked Kansas State (22-8) Thursday (7:07 p.m.) in its first NCAA game in five years.

Another one-side-of-the-ball performance last night led to another defeat for the punchless Temple football team. The Owls, facing Kansas State in a nonconference game, were not able to generate enough offense to keep their hardworking defense off the field, and the Wildcats ran away to a 40-0 victory in their first game of the season. The rout pleased a record crowd of 50,624 at KSU Stadium. Temple, which opened its season with a 6-0 loss to Maryland on Sept.2 at Franklin Field, was behind by 26-0 at halftime.

THE FINAL FOUR coaches have won 2,835 games among them. Roy Williams and Jim Boeheim are in the Hall of Fame. If Lon Kruger and Jay Wright keep up their current pace, they may join them in Springfield one day. Boeheim has been on the Syracuse sideline for 989 wins. The NCAA says 101 of them don't count anymore, but the games were won so, for our purposes, they are part of the total. Williams has won 782 at Kansas and North Carolina. Kruger, the only coach to take five schools to the NCAA Tournament, has 590 wins at Texas Pan-American, Kansas State, Florida, Illinois, UNLV and Oklahoma.

AS THEY HEAD to Richmond for Saturday's Atlantic 10 opener, this Saint Joseph's team has put itself on the periphery of postseason conversation. After a predictably sluggish effort, following a week without a game and three days without any basketball, the Hawks eventually put away game Maryland Eastern Shore on Tuesday night at Hagan Arena, winning, 78-68. Except for a game against Penn as part of the Big 5 Palestra doubleheader on Jan. 20, St. Joe's (10-2) is all A-10 from here to the regular-season finish line.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - When Riley Pint walked a batter in his first inning at Perfect Game's national showcase in June, there was a rumble of surprise among the hundreds of observing scouts. In the buildup to this gathering of the nation's best high school players, the lanky Kansan had been portrayed as some sort of baseball ideal, one without pitching or personal flaws. His pre-showcase scouting report from Perfect Game, a website that ranks baseball prospects, raved about a fastball that reached 96 m.p.h.

At the time, Fran Dunphy could feel the wave coming, and only in retrospect did he see a way to keep it from crashing upon him and those Kansas coaches and players along the sideline at the Wells Fargo Center. This was Dec. 22. Dunphy took a timeout with Temple leading the No. 10-ranked Jayhawks by 27 points and with 50 seconds left in regulation, the Owls' 77-52 victory a formality. Already, the Temple players were lining up near the scorer's table, juiced and ready to celebrate their upset, and already Temple fans and students were nearing the court, preparing to storm it at the sound of the final buzzer.

ON TUESDAY NIGHT, I was watching the closing moments of the Big Ten game between No. 5 Wisconsin and No. 14 Maryland. The Terps pulled off a 59-53 upset at the sold-out Xfinity Center on their campus. In my younger days, I would not have had any feeling of trepidation as the student section was getting amped for the end of one of the biggest wins since head coach Mark Turgeon took over in 2011. A storming of the court was imminent, and, soon after the final buzzer, hundreds of yellow-clad fans rushed out of the student section in an all-out frenzy to join their players in the celebration on the court.

COURT-STORMING isn't always a peaceful outburst of spontaneous celebration. After Kansas State pulled off an upset over No. 8 Kansas Monday night, fans rushed the court and, in several instances, were seen pushing and banging into players and coaches. Yesterday, Kansas State athletic director John Currie apologized to Kansas coach Bill Self and his team. "Although no one was hurt last night," Currie said, "we fell short of our expectations for securing the court and escorting KU to its locker room without incident.

THE BIG NEWS in the third College Football Playoff poll is TCU. You knew someone had to move into the top four after No. 3 Auburn lost at home to three-touchdown underdog Texas A&M. Most probably figured it would be Alabama, since the Crimson Tide was No. 5. Instead, TCU moved from sixth to fourth, coming off a 21-point home win over then-fellow one-loss Kansas State. In the Associated Press (media) poll, which doesn't really mean anything anymore, Alabama was fourth, one ahead of TCU. But in the poll that will determine which four make it to the inaugural FBS tournament, the Crimson Tide remained fifth.

La Salle looked like the Explorers of last March during Sunday's 71-63 win at St. Joseph's. "I think it was our best game," La Salle coach John Giannini said. The Explorers hope that momentum carries into the Atlantic Ten tournament. Unlike last year, when La Salle lost its lone Atlantic Ten tournament game to Butler but still received a bid to the NCAA tournament, this season's team has no margin for error. La Salle (15-15) likely has to run the table, winning four games in four days to return to the NCAAs after last year's Sweet 16 run. The A-10 tournament will begin Thursday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and No. 8-seeded La Salle will plays a familiar foe in the noon opener, No. 9 St. Bonaventure.
