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.

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.

West Chester is facing two obstacles in its NCAA Division II first-round playoff game in Portland, Ore., tomorrow afternoon: A good football team in Portland State (8-3) and an opposing head coach who will try almost anything. Meet Ernest Duncan "Pokey" Allen Jr., certified coaching character. Allen, a former defensive coordinator in the USFL, has allowed fans to call plays. He also bet a reporter from the school newspaper a month's salary last year that Portland State, where Phoenix Cardinals quarterback Neil Lomax played, would raise its average attendance at games to 10,000.

Luke Hadfield kicked a 34-yard field goal with 42 seconds remaining yesterday as Millersville turned two first-period interception-return touchdowns into a 17-0 lead, then rallied for a 27-24 victory over Indiana (Pa.) in an NCAA Division II first-round playoff game. Darren Ryals returned interceptions of 53 and 60 yards for touchdowns before turnover-plagued IUP (8-3) rallied for a 24-17 lead, but Millersville's Bret Stover hit Roger Smith on a 22-yard touchdown pass for a 24-24 tie with 5 minutes, 59 seconds to play.

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.

This is what West Chester's football team will be facing today at 4 p.m. in its NCAA Division II playoff game at Portland State: A quarterback who has thrown for 3,016 yards and 16 touchdowns. A running back, second string when the season started, who has gained 971 yards. A 23,000-seat stadium with unfamiliar AstroTurf. And West Chester coach Rick Daniels wouldn't be anywhere else. After the Rams (8-2) lost a 30-29 heartbreaker to Millersville last Saturday, Daniels said, "I thought our playoff chances were slim and none . . . and slim just left town.

Three more prominent underclassmen - Scotty Thurman, of Arkansas, Rodrick Rhodes, of Kentucky, and Chris Carr, of Southern Illinois - yesterday declared themselves available for the NBA draft. The possibility that any collective bargaining agreement reached between the NBA and its players might include a salary cap for rookies has spurred a number of college stars to announce they are coming out. The trio joins a collection of other prominent players: Joe Smith, of Maryland, the college Player of the Year; Corliss Williamson, who was Thurman's teammate at Arkansas; Gary Trent, of Ohio University; and Mario Bennett, of Arizona State.

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.

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.
