Motivated by watching his sibling, Kenny Boynton Jr. gave basketball a try in the sixth grade. "I was always around it," Boynton said of watching his older brother, Deondre, play in a church league. "I used to go outside every day. We got an outside goal, and I used to shoot every day. By the ninth grade, I knew my game had gotten a little better. " A little better is an understatement. Now a senior-to-be at American Heritage High (Fla.), Boynton is one of the headliners at the Reebok All-American Camp at Philadelphia University.

MICHIGAN'S TREY Burke rushed into the frontcourt, trying to take advantage of a 2-on-1 break. At the last moment, he softly lobbed the ball toward the rim, where Glenn Robinson III slammed it through the hoop. That was the beginning of Michigan's latest offensive clinic, a highlight reel of dunks, three-pointers, and smart passing that overwhelmed visiting Iowa in a 95-67 rout Sunday. Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists for the second-ranked Wolverines. Robinson had 20 points and 10 rebounds.

OMAHA, Neb. - No big upset this time. Kenny Boynton and Florida were just too good for Norfolk State Boynton scored 20 points and the balanced Gators routed the 15th-seeded Spartans 84-50 yesterday to reach the Round of 16. Norfolk State shook up the West Regional when it upset No. 2 seed Missouri 86-84 Friday, and was trying to become the first 15 seed to reach the fourth round. Florida (25-10) put a quick end to that idea, making five three-pointers during a 25-0 run that made it 29-6 midway through the first half.

With Michigan State's season in peril, Draymond Green turned to teammate Keith Appling during a timeout and told him to be ready. His moment was near. And when it arrived, Appling delivered. His shot, the one Green urged him to take, helped save the Spartans. Appling's critical three-pointer with 1 minute, 34 seconds left, a 20-foot jumper set up by Green's drive and marvelous pass, gave Michigan State a 65-61 win Sunday in Columbus, Ohio, over Saint Louis and thrust the top-seeded Spartans into the round of 16 after they survived a 90-foot tug-of-war and wills with the scrappy Billikens.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Trey Burke was a 16-month-old toddler the last time Michigan was playing this late in the NCAA tournament. That regional final 19 years ago, a loss that ended the Fab Five era, was played in a building that no longer exists. Where Reunion Arena once stood near downtown Dallas is now a vacant lot about 20 minutes from where the Wolverines finally get another chance to get back to the Final Four. "It's definitely crazy," Burke said Saturday. "Just to get this program moving back in the right direction means a lot to us. " No. 4 seed Michigan (29-7)
