St. Joseph's will help launch the 2013 Old Spice Classic men's basketball tournament, taking on Louisiana State on Thanksgiving night at the HP Field House near Orlando. The eight-team bracket-style tournament runs Nov. 28, 29 and Dec. 1. The Hawks have never played LSU. They will meet either Memphis or Siena in a second-round matchup on Nov. 29. Butler, Purdue, Oklahoma State, and Washington State fill out the rest of the bracket. Coach Phil Martelli's squad finished 18-14 last season, ending the year with a loss to St. John's in the first round of the NIT. The Hawks fell in the second round of the Atlantic Ten Conference tournament, losing, 82-79, to Virginia Commonwealth, the tournament's runner-up.

AFTER EAGLES practice sessions this spring, a few players typically stay on the field to work with the JUGS machine, catching footballs. That group always includes veteran wideout Jason Avant and undrafted rookie Russell Shepard. Avant is there because this is how he has forged a solid 7-year career, despite being really slow by NFL standards and not especially big, at 6-foot, 212. Shepard is there because, when he signed with the Eagles out of LSU after a disappointing draft experience, he asked the advice of Eagles director of player programs Harold Carmichael.

If third-round pick Bennie Logan is already overshadowed as a member of the Eagles' 2013 draft class, because quarterback Matt Barkley was drafted one round later, it would not be the first time Logan has been snubbed. Logan grew up in Coushatta, La., one of eight children, and attention is always diverted in a big family. He's the third-youngest and has four brothers and three sisters. At Louisiana State, Logan did not command much attention, either. He was a productive defensive tackle whose spotlight paled compared to defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery - and others, too. There were eight LSU defensive players drafted in 2013.

One of the nine undrafted players who agreed to terms with the Eagles is Louisiana State's Russell Shepard, a dynamic athlete who never played to his reputation with the Tigers. Shepard, a 6-foot, 196-pounder, ran a 4.46-second 40-yard dash. He is a receiver who converted from quarterback and could contribute on special teams. Shepard told ESPN-FM in Baton Rouge, La., that he signed with the Eagles during the draft, and that teams called after the fifth round, and Shepard said he was already taken.

The Southeastern Conference is known for its powerhouse football programs, which receive massive national exposure throughout the fall and right into bowl championship time. But the track and field programs in the SEC aren't too shabby, either. Since 2001, conference members have won 22 NCAA championships in men's and women's indoor and outdoor track. SEC schools have competed at the Penn Relays several times, and usually return home with one or more of those big wheels that signify a Championship of America victory.

Adrienne Webb scored 29 points, including two crucial free throws with 22 seconds left, and Louisiana State beat third-seeded Penn State, 71-66, in Baton Rouge, La., in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Tuesday night. Bianca Lutley overcame foul trouble and capped an 18-point night with a tough floater in traffic in the final minute to give the Tigers (22-11) the lead and another key free throw to make it a four-point game with 8.3 seconds to go. Nikki Greene scored 16 points and Alex Bentley added 14 for the Lions (26-6)

INDIANAPOLIS - Tyrann Mathieu said he has not smoked marijuana since Oct. 26, 2012. Mathieu, an all-American defensive back at Louisiana State in 2011, did not play last season after disciplinary problems related to marijuana use prompted a suspension and eventually an arrest on a possession charge. He entered a drug rehabilitation program and now hopes to repair his image, secure a spot in the NFL, and resist the temptations that put his career in jeopardy. "I've been through it. I know what it's like not to have football," Mathieu said Sunday at the NFL scouting combine.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - One of these decades, maybe the SEC will just secede from the rest of the nation and hold its own playoff, which this season could have included six top 10 teams. Maybe then the other 110 or so FBS schools could actually hold a title game that one of them might have a chance in. Until then, better grab a Snickers. And when this thing goes to a four-team playoff in 2014, there's every chance it might resemble an SEC scrum. This much is clear: Monday night at Sun Life Stadium, the conference that has dominated college football since the midpoint of the last decade hoisted the Sears trophy for the seventh consecutive time, which of course seems pretty much impossible.

THERE ARE SIX conference championship games this weekend. Only one really matters. That of course would be the SEC final, the one that begat the proliferation of all of these other imitators some 2 decades back. Alabama and Georgia will meet in Atlanta in a defacto national semifinal to determine who gets to play Notre Dame in Miami on Jan. 7 for the BCS title. So why isn't it the prime-time matchup? Instead, you can catch it on CBS3 at 4. The loser won't even make it to a BCS bowl, because of the Florida factor.
