BOSTON - For a moment there, Ohio State looked done for. The Buckeyes were a step slow getting to Cincinnati shooters. As another Bearcats three-pointer rained in, Ohio State shoulders slumped on the court. For that moment, it looked like a sweep for the Big East of Thursday's three NCAA games between that conference and the Big Ten. But just as quickly, Ohio State restored its inside-outside game, forced some turnovers, recovered its equilibrium, and proved worthy of its No. 2 seed, winning the battle for Ohio by taking out the Bearcats, 81-66, at TD Garden.

Randy Ayers hopes that his new head coaching job begins in much better fashion than his previous one ended. The newly appointed 76ers head coach went 124-108 in eight seasons guiding Ohio State. The first four years he had winning seasons. The last four were losing ones. He was finally dismissed following the 1996-97 season and joined the Sixers as their physical conditioning coach shortly after. In 1994 the NCAA put Ohio State on one year of probation for rules infractions in "recruiting, extra benefits and eligibility legislation in the men's basketball and men's and women's track-and-field programs.

Damon Stringer, at 5-11, is easily the smallest starter in Ohio State's lineup. He sure plays big. Stringer scored 12 of his 21 points down the stretch last night, leading the visiting Buckeyes to a 73-71 upset over No. 8 Michigan in the Big Ten opener for both teams. "I thought Stringer did a great job down the stretch," Ohio State coach Randy Ayers said. "He was huge. " It was the third loss in four games for the slumping Wolverines (9-3), who had just returned from Honolulu, where they lost two of three in the Rainbow Classic.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Buckeyes' 90 years of in-state domination almost ended on a single play. John Simon pressured backup Toledo quarterback Terrance Owens, forcing an incompletion on fourth down with 48 seconds left, to preserve No. 15 Ohio State's 27-22 victory over the Rockets on Saturday. The Rockets (1-1) drove from their own 28 and were 17 yards away from becoming the first in-state team to beat the Buckeyes since 1921. Ohio State is 43-0-1 against its closest neighbors since that long ago 7-6 setback to Oberlin.

TIME TO LET your mind wander for a moment. Let's say Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame all lose before the season's over. And the winner of the SEC title game (presumably Alabama or Georgia) loses in the BCS final. And let's say Urban Meyer's Buckeyes win out. What then? And if you don't think there's at least a possibility that each of those things could fall into place, you haven't been paying attention. In this BCS era, late insanity has been no stranger to the equation.

MIAMI - Ohio State's first road trip under interim coach Luke Fickell was forgettable. Former Temple coach Al Golden's first win at Miami's helm was memorable. Lamar Miller and a swarming Hurricanes defense saw to that. Miller ran for 188 yards, Jacory Harris threw two first-quarter touchdown passes to Allen Hurns, and Miami (1-1) thumped No. 17 Ohio State, 24-6, Saturday night. The Buckeyes (2-1) could get nothing going against the Hurricanes. Quarterbacks Joe Bauserman and Braxton Miller combined to complete 4 of 17 passes, and the freshman Miller had the giveaway that sealed Ohio State's fate when he had the ball punched out by Miami's Marcus Robinson with 9 minutes, 21 seconds remaining.

SAN ANTONIO - By unofficial count, Greg Oden was only asked the same question 24 times. Or once for every minute that he was able to play on Saturday at the Alamodome. Yet, as each fresh media wave converged upon his locker, he sat totally composed on a chair, flanked on each side by what appeared to be team managers. At least they didn't look like bodyguards, but you never know. Good thing there's a time limit on player availability, or the postgame assault might have continued until daylight.

After rejecting offers from Arkansas and Wake Forest last year, Gary Williams has finally said yes - to Ohio State. Williams, who had a 76-44 record as basketball coach at Boston College, has accepted a five-year deal to succeed Eldon Miller at Ohio State. If Williams's contract is near what Miller's was, he will be earning about $145,000, with perks including a camp, a television show and a radio show. Williams's base salary at Ohio State will be about $75,000. "I was happy at BC; it wasn't like there were big problems there," the 40-year-old Collingswood, N.J., native said.

A woman whose lawsuit against two Ohio State boosters led to the firing of basketball coach Jim O'Brien has received threatening phone calls and has had her car tires slashed, her lawyer said yesterday. "This entire ordeal has been a tremendous strain upon her," attorney Jeffrey Lucas said. Kathleen Salyers sued Dan and Kim Roslovic last August seeking $510,000 in expenses and damages. She did not intend to expose alleged NCAA violations at Ohio State, Lucas said. In an April deposition, Salyers testified that she housed and fed player Boban Savovic for 2 years, spending thousands of dollars on phone bills, car insurance and spending money for the player who was on the 1998-99 team that O'Brien led to the Final Four.

Whether it was kickball in the backyard, races by bonfire or all-you-can-eat free-for-alls at the dinner table, Maggie Balint has always been extremely competitive. Perhaps that's why the junior pitcher for Avon Grove had second thoughts after committing to Delaware during her sophomore year. "I'm a person who wants to play the most competitive softball I can play," the righthanded slinger said. After backing out of her commitment earlier this season, Balint is contemplating offers from Ohio State and James Madison while also fielding interest from Kentucky, Missouri and Penn State.

KYLE MOLOCK, just 16 days after his 17th birthday, was in Anaheim, Calif., a long, productive summer of AAU ball down to one final tournament. He had been playing up one age group. He had committed to Purdue the previous fall. He was about to head back to his home in suburban Columbus, Ohio, to gear up for his junior year of high school, his basketball future jammed with possibilities as the winter of 2011 beckoned. So why exactly was Kyle Molock, 4 1/2 years later and now 21, seated on a winter's day in what used to be the press room at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse before it became Hagan Arena on the Saint Joseph's University campus?

STATE COLLEGE - On Jan. 11, 2014, James Franklin made a promise. "We are going to dominate the state," the coach said without blinking an eye. "Dominate the state" - it's been hashtagged on Twitter and printed on T-shirts since Franklin's introductory news conference as the Nittany Lions' football coach, and, while many have overused or overblown the motto, it wasn't an empty claim. Franklin put himself and his staff out on a limb, but, as long as there aren't any surprises today on National Signing Day, he'll have the results to back up that promise.

St. Joseph's football team will play Maryland state power Mount St. Joseph on Oct. 10 in Baltimore, Wildcats coach Paul Sacco said Friday. Mount St. Joseph, an all-boys private school with an enrollment of around 1,000 students, was 8-3 last season. "It should be a good experience," Sacco said. "We'll go down a day early, maybe go to the Inner Harbor, go out to dinner. "They're a good team. Playing a game like this will help us. " This will mark the second season in a row that St. Joseph will play a road game against an out-of-state team.

MOBILE, Ala. - If the Eagles were to draft Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith, known for his capabilities as a vertical threat, they might evoke some comparisons to DeSean Jackson. But Smith said yesterday he's more interested in emulating Jackson's successor as the Birds' top receiver. "I watched Jeremy Maclin a lot, especially when he was at Missouri," Smith said after yesterday's North team Senior Bowl practice at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. "He's a very smooth, smooth runner - just sassy when he runs.

Sometimes, trying to return to sleep in those unsettling hours before dawn, I'll walk my mind through vanished sports landscapes. The mental exercise required to dredge up details of once-familiar locales can induce sleep as effectively as any pill. I might enter Connie Mack Stadium beneath the 21st and Lehigh portico, and walk through the clacking turnstiles and down the dank concourse, passing program vendors and dimly lit concession stands, until finally I am climbing a ramp to the lonely left-field bleachers.

Isiah Perkins became Williamstown High School's quarterback as a senior and learned on the fly as the orchestrator of the Braves' new no-huddle, spread offense. He became an expert in making quick decisions. Except when it comes to his college destination. "I'm keeping my options open," Perkins said Friday. A senior who has been recruited mostly as a defensive back, Perkins has offers from five colleges: Villanova, Bucknell, Marist, New Hampshire and Sacred Heart. The 6-0, 180-pound Perkins made a recruiting visit to Sacred Heart last weekend and was scheduled to travel this weekend to New Hampshire.

THEY'RE GENIUSES, those guys. No, not Ohio State's Urban Meyer or Oregon's Mark Helfrich, or even our own Chip Kelly, who turned one of them into a sports science guru and the other into a successful head coach and then watched his influence play against itself in a wonderfully entertaining and surprising national championship game Monday night. (Wonder what that Widener football coach thought about that!) No, the geniuses were those 12 people who picked the right four teams back on Dec. 7, shaking off the shaking heads of many, myself included, who had drank the Kool-Aid about the Southeastern Conference's superiority and the relative strength of the two Big 12 teams and bought lock, stock and barrel that the Big Ten was a conference filled with pinky toes.

ARLINGTON, Texas - What might be the final pass of Marcus Mariota's storied college career finished in the hands of Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple, a Voorhees native who enjoyed his ultimate experience Monday night. The interception sealed the Buckeyes' 42-20 upset of Oregon in the national championship, a resounding victory that gave Apple a title to bring back home. "This is something I dreamed of since I was 11, 12 years old," Apple said in an emotional postgame locker room. "This is something I told my friends about, and they all laughed at me. . . . I'm sure everybody's very proud.
