He's not the most well-known guy in the Atlantic Ten, but there have been plenty of nights when Xavier forward Darnell Williams has been the most dominant player on the floor. Last night, Williams may have had a little something extra to prove, after sitting out a suspension the night before, after the events of the last week. He came out possessed, Rhode Island suffered for it, and the Musketeers are in tonight's A-10 championship game at the CoreStates Spectrum after knocking out the Rams, 95-80.

Utah coach Rick Majerus was so busy coming up with a game plan to stop Lamar Odom, he didn't give Antonio Reynolds-Dean much thought. Reynolds-Dean made the Utes pay. He scored 22 points and Odom added 15 as Rhode Island upset No. 21 Utah, 70-63, last night in the Great Eight in Chicago. Preston Murphy, who briefly left the game limping, came back to hit two huge three-pointers as the Rams (4-3) pulled away late in the second half. Andre Miller tied a career high with 28 points and had a Great Eight-record six steals for the Utes (3-3)

He only came off the bench, but, oh, what a substitute Rondell Turner was for Simon Gratz, the nation's top high school basketball team last season. The 6-foot-8 senior transfer ended up as the team's leading scorer, averaging 16.2 points per game. Over the weekend, Turner parlayed his one-year stint at Gratz into a basketball scholarship at Rhode Island, one of the Atlantic Ten Conference's four NCAA tournament entries last season. After having lived in group and foster homes since middle school, Turner moved to his grandmother's North Philadelphia home last fall and transferred from University City to Gratz.

Former UCLA basketball coach Jim Harrick, fired just a year after the Bruins won the national championship, visited the Rhode Island campus yesterday and appeared ready to become the next Rams coach. Harrick, 59, met with Rhode Island president Robert Carothers, athletic director Ron Petro and Rhode Island team members and boosters. He also met Gov. Lincoln Almond - a Rhode Island alumnus - at the Statehouse. Harrick seemed impressed. So did Petro. "The overall package that he brings to the University of Rhode Island - being a national champion - is outstanding," Petro said.
