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.

Southwest Missouri State took care of two ghosts in one game. Last night's 77-64 victory over visiting Southern Methodist in the National Invitation Tournament allowed the Bears to exorcise any leftover bad feelings about being left out of the NCAA Tournament field. And Southwest Missouri got back at the team to which it lost its own tournament last December. "Everybody was mad about not being picked. Tonight, everybody wanted to win and keep going," said Allen Phillips, Southwest Missouri's senior forward, who led all scorers with 23 points.

IN 2009-10, VILLANOVA'S basketball team didn't lose its second game until Feb. 6. Last season, it was Jan. 17. This time? Hope you had 3 days after Thanksgiving in the office pool. With no seniors and five first-year guys, the Wildcats were picked to finish eighth in the Big East. Still, squandering a nine-point lead in the last 3 minutes against Santa Clara following a double-digit loss to Saint Louis in a tournament in Southern California isn't the kind of November most 'Nova Nationites probably had in mind.

Rickey Paulding provided the spark Missouri needed. Paulding scored eight of his 14 points in a 2-minute, 18-second span of the second half, as the Tigers stayed perfect on their home court with a 67-52 victory over No. 3 Oklahoma last night. Ricky Clemons, playing with a broken left hand, had 13 points and three assists for Missouri (17-7, 8-5 Big 12). The Tigers are 7-6 in their last 13 games and dropped out of the Top 25 last week. But they are 14-0 at the Hearnes Center and pulled away late to end a nine-game losing streak against the Sooners, who shot a season-low 27.3 percent.

Darrell Arthur scored nine points in a second-half surge that carried No. 4 Kansas past visiting Missouri, 90-71, last night, giving the Jayhawks their 20th straight home victory and a season sweep of their archrivals. Brandon Rush scored 19 points for the Jayhawks (22-1, 7-1 Big 12), going 7-for-13 from the three-point arc. Jason Horton and Darryl Butterfield entered the game midway through the first half, giving Missouri (13-10, 3-5) its full complement of players, except for injured Stephon Hannah, since a fight outside a Columbia, Mo., nightclub in the early morning hours of Jan. 27. Hannah, who had 23 points and six assists in Missouri's six-point loss to Kansas on Jan. 19, broke his jaw in the altercation and four players were suspended indefinitely.

DR. JEFF PARRES has known Jeremy Maclin since the Eagles' 2009, first-round pick was 9 years old. You could say Parres approves of the pick; in fact, he likes him so much that "he's a son now. " Maclin has lived full time with the Parres family, in suburban St. Louis, since his sophomore year in high school, intermittently for several years before that, starting when Parres was his youth football coach. "Jeremy's never known his father, and his mom has had some difficulties in life, off and on," Parres said outside the NovaCare auditorium yesterday, after Maclin and second-round running back LeSean McCoy finished their introductory press conferences.

WHAT YOU have to remember about the at-large selections is that 10 people on the selection committee punch their preferences into computer terminals. There is major discussion, but, in the end, it is those 10 human beings, with individual preferences on what matters, who rank the teams. Those rankings are eventually averaged and the final at-large teams are selected. There is no conspiracy. The votes are the votes. Tournament committee chairman Jeff Hathaway kept talking about nonconference strength of schedule.
