PUTTING VILLANOVA and Saint Joseph's anywhere together can often be a dicey proposition. They don't call their rivalry the "Holy War" for nothing. But the selection committee found a place where the two will have to coexist. They are going to Buffalo and would meet in the third round Saturday, if they get past their first opponents. "I swear, I really think there are so many connections [among teams]," Villanova coach Jay Wright said. "I do think it's random. " St. Joe's plays Connecticut.

DaJuan Summers scored 18 points, and 11th-ranked Georgetown won the first of many matchups between ranked Big East teams this season, beating second-ranked Connecticut, 74-63, last night in Hartford, Conn.

Price had 16 points and Jeff Adrien 15 for the Huskies (11-1, 0-1), who cut a 12-point deficit early in the second half to three points twice but couldn't get any closer.

Jeremiah Dominguez scored 25 points last night, helping Portland State knock off seventh-ranked Gonzaga, 77-70, in Spokane, Wash. This was Portland State's first win over a ranked team since it reinstated its basketball program for the 1996-97 season. Portland State (9-3), which relied on a short, quick lineup, outrebounded the Zags by 39-30. The Vikings stayed in front by hitting 12 three-pointers. Gonzaga (8-3) looked sloppy, committing 11 turnovers, missing layups, and shooting only 42 percent.

Tailback Chris "Beanie" Wells is likely to return to No. 14 Ohio State against Minnesota on Saturday. "It adds to our arsenal," coach Jim Tressel said yesterday, shortly after announcing Wells was probable for Saturday's game. Wells has been out of action since injuring his right foot early in the second half of the opening victory over Youngstown State. Dan Herron has been the tailback in victories over Ohio and Troy and a lopsided defeat at top-ranked Southern California.

It's hard to imagine Georgetown coach John Thompson III, whose words are usually measured and hype-free, using the phrase "scary good" when talking about his team. But the fifth-ranked Hoyas are so versatile this season that few will argue with him. Not only are they capable of a deliberate game focused on big center Roy Hibbert, they've got some young talent that can change gears and run the opponent off the floor. That's what happened yesterday in an 87-55 victory over visiting Jacksonville.

Former NFL coach and TV commentator Jerry Glanville was introduced last night as the head football coach at Division I-AA Portland (Ore.) State. Glanville, who led the Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons, had been Hawaii's defensive coordinator for 2 years. "He brings spark. He brings with him some star power. That's pretty obvious," Portland State assistant athletic director Mike Lund told the Associated Press. "I'm not saying that's why he exclusively got the job. Obviously he can coach, too. But in our situation that was pretty valuable.
