Nazr Mohammed made acclaimed Purdue center Brad Miller look ordinary, and Kentucky exposed the Boilermakers as "wannabes" in the eyes of their own coach. Mohammed scored a career-high 19 points and helped limit Miller to 10 - about half his average - as the seventh-ranked Wildcats defeated No. 6 Purdue, 89-75, last night in the finale of the Great Eight at the United Center in Chicago. The two-day event featured teams that reached the regional finals of last season's NCAA Tournament.

The NCAA yesterday shot down a report that it was investigating Purdue's basketball program for possible violations. Responding to a CBS Sports report, Purdue had denied that it had received a letter of inquiry, which would precede an investigation. "I've seen some articles where Purdue indicated it had not received that letter, which is how we start an investigation, and I can confirm that's correct," said David Berst, the NCAA director of enforcement. "All that means is there is no NCAA investigation.

Please understand if Michael Lawrence seems a little dazed. He has experienced an incredible 21/2 years. The 6-5, 265-pound Lawrence, who didn't play organized football until 1997 at George Washington High and was inactive last fall, will enroll next week at Purdue as a signed-and-sealed recruit. Lawrence spent the first semester of this school year at Delaware Valley Prep in the Northeast, improving his grades in core subjects. He'd first caught Purdue's eye in '98, when teammates Bruce Perry, Scott Smith and Jafar Williams were playing well enough to receive scholarships from Maryland.

Collingswood High senior wide receiver Brandon Whittington, a onetime soccer player, has made an oral commitment to attend Purdue on a football scholarship. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Whittington, who is one of the area's most acrobatic receivers, was the top scorer for Collingswood's varsity soccer team when he was a sophomore. He has been an outstanding receiver/defensive back the last two seasons. "He visited Purdue over the weekend and made the commitment before he left," Collingswood coach Bob Barikian said last night.

Too many turnovers in its diet spoiled Christmas weekend for Purdue. The ninth-ranked Boilermakers committed a season-high 27 turnovers and paid the price with their second loss of the season, an 87-82 setback to unranked Providence yesterday in Rhode Island. The loss snapped an eight-game Purdue win streak and dropped the Boilermakers to 12-2. "The keys to the game were [Providence's] quickness, toughness and getting after loose balls," Purdue coach Gene Keady said. "They had 94 possessions.

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?

During Nick Foles' senior season at Westlake High School in Austin, Texas, there was a celebration of the 10th anniversary of Westlake's 1996 state football championship. The quarterback from the 1996 team found a sliver of time away from work to fly in for the ceremony. His employer was the Saints. His name was Drew Brees. Born 10 years apart in Austin, Brees and Foles grew up in the same area and are the two most storied quarterbacks from their alma mater. On Saturday night, the Westlake alums will play in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs when the Saints visit the Eagles.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State guard John Urschel wore a smile wide enough to cover the area occupied by the Nittany Lions' five offensive linemen on the line of scrimmage. The smiles along the offensive line and elsewhere were directed at Penn State's rushing attack, which piled up 289 yards and five touchdowns Saturday in the Nittany Lions' 45-21 Big Ten victory over Purdue on an unseasonably warm day at Beaver Stadium. Zach Zwinak, who rushed for 149 yards on 26 carries, rolled for three touchdown runs, and Bill Belton and quarterback Christian Hackenberg had one each as the Nittany Lions (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten)

"We have no problem with morale," O'Brien said. "Our team is enthusiastic. They are proud. They love to play football, they love to play for Penn State.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - With three games remaining before it closes the book on the 2013 season, Penn State is looking to clean up mistakes and execution in all aspects of its game, beginning with Saturday's contest against Purdue at Beaver Stadium. A victory over the Boilermakers (1-8, 0-5 Big Ten), who have struggled greatly in the first year of the tenure of head coach Darrell Hazell, a Cinnaminson High graduate, would assure the Nittany Lions (5-4, 2-3) of a .500 season with only Nebraska and Wisconsin left on their schedule.

INDIANAPOLIS - Purdue University President Mitch Daniels fended off calls for his ouster Wednesday and denied trying to quash academic freedom while serving as Indiana's governor, a day after an Associated Press report cited e-mails in which he opposed use of a book by historian and antiwar activist Howard Zinn. Conservative free-speech advocates rose to his defense, saying it was appropriate for Daniels to express concern about what was taught in public institutions. E-mails published Tuesday by the AP show that Daniels tried to ensure Zinn's book was not used in Indiana's K-12 and college classrooms and that he wanted to "disqualify the propaganda" he said was being taught to teachers in training at Indiana's colleges.
