The Temple women's bowling team finished second to Morehead (Ky.) State in the recent Atlantic City Collegiate Invitational at the Showboat Hotel & Casino, but Temple coach Jayne Attanasio, who coordinated the tournament, would have felt better had there been more teams in the competition. "I was disappointed that only eight women's teams showed up in this prestigious tournament," said Attanasio. "We had more last year. Oddly, while the women's entries were off, the men increased from 28 to 33 colleges.

DENVER - They know a little something about hoops history in the Bluegrass State, and Kenneth Faried has a small slice of his own. Faried plays for tiny Morehead State (24-9), located in the northeast corner of Kentucky, and has become the most prolific rebounder in the modern era of college basketball. He'll try to grab a few more Thursday when the 13th-seeded Eagles play fourth-seeded Louisville (25-9) - an all-Kentucky matchup being played in Denver, about 1,200 miles from home - in the Southwest region of the NCAA tournament.

For the first time, four teams from one state have reached the NCAA tournament's round of 16, with Ohio represented by Ohio State, Cincinnati, Xavier, and Ohio University. Previously, three schools from the same state had made it 20 times, including La Salle, Villanova, and Penn State in 1955.

DENVER - Richmond plays the role of favorite pretty well. The program, which made its name by bouncing everyone from Charles Barkley to Jim Boeheim out of the tournament in a string of upsets over the decades, defeated No. 13 seed Morehead State, 65-48, on Saturday to advance to the round of 16 for the first time since 1988. As the better seed and a four-point favorite, this was one the 12th-seeded Spiders were supposed to win, and they did - with ease. They got 19 points from Justin Harper and turned Eagles big man Kenneth Faried into pretty much a nonfactor.

Washington's reward for winning another Pac-10 tournament: a nearly 3,000-mile trip to Raleigh, N.C., for its NCAA tournament opener, and a possible matchup with North Carolina in the Tar Heels' home state. If the No. 7 seed Huskies (23-10) had been steadier during the season, maybe they'd be playing closer to home. Washington faces 10th-seeded Georgia on Friday in the teams' East Regional opener. To get here, the Huskies traveled 2,802 miles - the longest trip for any tournament team this year.

On the verge of seeing his unheralded, 13th-seeded Morehead State program turn into something much more impressive, the coach could have called a play for his NBA-bound center or his guard who couldn't miss. Instead, he went with a dream. Executing a play that came to his coach the night before, Morehead State's Demonte Harper dribbled patiently and watched the clock tick down. Then he stepped up behind the three-point arc and swished a shot with 4.2 seconds remaining Thursday for a 62-61 victory over No. 4 Louisville and the first big upset of the NCAA tournament.
