He is happy that his team was recognized for a good season with an NIT bid, but St. Joseph's coach Phil Martelli doesn't want anyone to carry that affirmation beyond one simple goal - a first-round win Wednesday night over Northern Iowa. "It's not about advancing or knowing who might be your next opponent," Martelli said Tuesday before putting the Hawks through practice at Hagan Arena, site of the 7:15 p.m. opening game. "It's only about winning on Wednesday. " The temptation for the Hawks would be to look ahead in their bracket.

"We took some bad shots and turned down good shots, which is the sign of a team that has started to stress over their shooting.

St. Joseph's had to battle back for much of the second half on its home court Wednesday night against Northern Iowa. The Hawks thought they might have at least forced overtime in their opening-round NIT game when Ronald Roberts dunked with 7 seconds to play. But Roberts was late retreating on defense and had to foul the Panthers' Seth Tuttle to keep him from making a layup. Tuttle hit the two free throws with 1.3 seconds to play to give Northern Iowa a 67-65 victory, ending the Hawks' season at 20-14.

STEVE VASTURIA sat at the back corner of the visiting hockey locker room in the bowels of the Wells Fargo Center, looking as if he should still be sitting in high school, waiting for the day to end so he could get out on the basketball court. Vasturia has the face of a young teenager, prompting coach Mike Brey to label him the "baby-faced assassin. " But he also had that look of excitement that only youth can bring. Well, youth and playing one of the biggest games of your life just minutes from your hometown and pretty much down the road from your former high school.

On the June day he drove a Harley-Davidson Road King north up Iowa 17 at the head of a column of hundreds of bikers, Scott Walker owned the state that casts the first votes in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. The Wisconsin governor, wearing a black leather jacket and fingerless gloves, enjoyed a fat lead in the polls - his union-killing record, evangelical background, and outside-the-Beltway persona considered a perfect fit for the 2016 Iowa caucuses. Since then, the road has turned washboard rough.

The Penn women's team may have hit the court at the Palestra just 12 hours after getting home from Florida, but they showed no sign of fatigue on Sunday afternoon, leading from the start in a 79-49 demolition of Norfolk State to notch their seventh straight win. After a dramatic, 67-66 win over Miami on New Year's Day, the Quakers were stranded in South Florida by bad weather in the Northeast. The team finally had to take a bus to Fort Myers, Fla., then fly into Atlantic City and take another bus to West Philadelphia - arriving early Sunday morning, nearly two days after their scheduled return.

BY NOW, the story has been told so many times that it's become the "Tall Tale" of the McDermott family. Back in 2009, the father, Greg, was the head basketball coach at Iowa State University in Ames. The son, Doug, was a first-team all-state player who averaged 20.1 points and 7.8 rebounds for Ames High School, which won consecutive state titles, going 53-0 in the process. The father, just like every other major college coach in the country, was hot on the recruiting trail of his son's teammate - Harrison Barnes, a consensus High school All-America who spent two seasons at the University of North Carolina before being selected seventh overall in the 2012 NBA draft.
