Sure, Kansas was impressive offensively. But the Jayhawks' defense made it all possible. The No. 2 Jayhawks scored the game's first 18 points last night to stomp Louisiana State, 82-53, in a first-round game of the Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Hawaii. "We were forcing them to miss shots in the first 10 to 12 minutes," Kansas coach Roy Williams said. "After that, it was a matter of finishing out the game and working on some things.

Chris Jackson is no longer a collegiate basketball player because Georgia Tech's Lethal Weapons 3 played like the pros last night. Jackson, Louisiana State's sophomore all-America guard, scored only 13 points, fouled out of his last collegiate game as a loser and then announced that he would enter the 1990 NBA draft. That announcement was a little anticlimactic after Georgia Tech forward Dennis Scott and guards Kenny Anderson and Brian Oliver, dubbed Lethal Weapons 3, struck swiftly and proved deadly to the Tigers.

The BCS Shuffle continued. As if we expected anything less. If you haven't figured this out by now, shame on you. At this rate, it wouldn't be shocking to see Boise State play for the national title. The Broncs probably have Oklahoma's vote. Anyway, Louisiana State and Kansas were the top two teams in the Bowl Championship Series standings released last night. The Tigers hold the top spot in the polls and the computer ratings; the Jayhawks are second in both. That it stays that way is anything but a given.

Blessed with Chris Jackson, perhaps the finest offensive player in the country, and two 7-foot high school all-Americans in Shaquille O'Neal and Stanley Roberts, LSU basketball coach Dale Brown was almost giddy with anticipation. Brown, never known as a shrinking violet anyway, proclaimed before the 1989-90 campaign began: "This is the team of the 1990s. And the '90s begin with this season. " Now that the '90s have, indeed, begun - and now that LSU is meeting Villanova at 7 p.m. Thursday in Knoxville, Tenn.

BATON ROUGE, La. - Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu was kicked off Louisiana State's football team Friday for breaking an athletic department rule, a blow to the Tigers' national championship hopes three weeks before their season opener. The junior defensive back - nicknamed Honey Badger for his tenacious style, small stature (5-foot-9, 175 pounds), and blond streak of hair - rose from obscurity to become one of college football's biggest stars last season. He was a sleeper Heisman candidate as the Tigers won the Southeastern Conference championship and reached the BCS title game.
