CHASE TAPLEY thinks Indiana State gave No. 18 San Diego State its toughest test of the season. Now he hopes it pushes the Aztecs forward as they look toward Mountain West play and a possible NCAA Tournament berth. "We need games like that for later on," said Tapley, who scored 13 points as the Aztecs (11-1) beat Indiana State, 62-55, despite poor free-throw and three-point shooting. "It gives us good experience. " Jamaal Franklin had 19 points and 15 rebounds to lead San Diego State to the finals of the Diamond Head Classic tournament, set for Tuesday.

TUCSON, Ariz. - Brian Carlwell is far from one of San Diego State's most dangerous players. The 6-foot-11, 300-pound senior saw just 10 minutes of action in the Aztecs' 68-50 thumping of Northern Colorado on Thursday in their NCAA West Regional game at the McKale Center. But the reserve center made folks aware that his team will be prepared for Saturday's third-round matchup against seventh-seeded Temple (26-7). "We will start watching film tonight and get ready to play," Carlwell said.

TUCSON, Ariz. - Scootie Randall could play increased minutes against San Diego State. Temple's 6-foot-6 swingman was limited to six minutes in a reserve role as the seventh-seeded Owls (26-7) defeated No. 10 Penn State in Thursday's NCAA tournament second-rounder. It was the first game back for the Atlantic Ten's most improved player since he suffered a hairline fracture in his right foot on Feb. 17. Randall will also come off the bench in Saturday's West Regional third-round contest against second-seed San Diego State (33-2)

TUCSON, Ariz. - Most people following the NCAA Tournament on television have seen the shot a dozen times if they have seen it once; it is more ubiquitous than Barkley. While Juan Fernandez said he is trying to avoid it, he still has seen it three or four times. Just inside the three-point line, desperate, leaning, knifing into an open space, 18 feet or so, less than a second to play, good. It is the shot that lifted Temple to a first-round NCAA Tournament victory over Penn State, the shot that will define this season for the Owls in many memories.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Christian Hackenberg enjoyed his best performance of the 2015 season for Penn State, but the Nittany Lions needed a 71-yard fumble return touchdown by 323-pound defensive tackle Austin Johnson to send everyone in Beaver Stadium home happy Saturday. Hackenberg threw three first-half touchdown passes before the Lions offense stalled, and Johnson provided a lift with his rumble to the end zone early in the fourth quarter to help Penn State secure a 37-21 victory over San Diego State before a crowd of 95,107.

San Diego State's players chased Devon Beitzel around screens, got hands in his face, challenged his shots. Nothing seemed to work, just like in two regular-season games against BYU's Jimmer Fredette. But, just like they did against the real Jimmer, the Aztecs eventually figured out a way to shut down Little Jimmer and finally win an NCAA Tournament game. Second-seeded San Diego State tightened its defense after a second-half scoring flurry by Beitzel and advanced in the NCAA Tournament for the first time by beating Northern Colorado, 68-50, in the West regional yesterday, in Tucson.

The 76ers held pre-draft workouts Friday for six players, the highest regarded being Baylor forward Taurean Prince, but their biggest task remains whom to select at No. 1, where forwards Ben Simmons of LSU and Brandon Ingram of Duke are competing for the top spot. Leading up to the June 23 draft, Sixers coach Brett Brown assured that the team would do the proper homework, a time-consuming task. "It will be the man hours and time required that people would expect and deserve," Brown said Friday after the workouts at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Christian Hackenberg (21-for-29) threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns (both in the first 11 minutes) and also caught a 14-yard TD from running back Nick Scott that made it 22-zip early in the third period.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Earlier this week, while seeking ways to decipher the San Diego State defense, Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg turned to a trusted source. Hackenberg texted Jared Goff, the quarterback at California – a team that defeated the Aztecs, 35-7, two weeks ago – and a good friend from their time together at the Elite 11 quarterback camp three years ago. "He's an awesome dude, one of my better friends," Hackenberg said of Goff, who went 17 of 24 for 321 yards and three touchdowns against San Diego State.

Lenape girls' lacrosse coach Jill McCarthy says she can always count on senior stars Natalie Peel and Shannon Gallagher. They're dependable. They're reliable. They're the Alpha and Omega of the team's offense and defense. "They provide a sense of calm and leadership at both ends of the field," McCarthy said. Peel, who scored seven goals in a 17-7 victory over Rancocas Valley in the season opener for both teams Thursday, is the spark of the Indians' attack. Gallagher, a defender, anchors the team's back line.

THE DEVELOPMENT of Steve Vasturia took another step over the weekend when he helped Notre Dame win its first ACC Tournament championship. They were doing the jig all over Tobacco Road after the Irish beat Duke and North Carolina on consecutive nights. Vasturia, a sophomore from St. Joseph's Prep, performed well enough that he became the first city leagues player to be named to the ACC's all-tournament team since Duke's Gerald Henderson (Episcopal) in 2009. Jerian Grant is Notre Dame's best player, but Vasturia is a solid contributor with a wonderful basketball IQ. "He's a special kid. He sees a pass ahead [of the play]

Al Bagnoli has led a charmed life. But as the second-winningest coach (146 games) in Ivy history embarks on his 23d and final season as Penn's football coach Saturday with a game at Jacksonville - three weeks after the Dolphins began the season - he has has a bone to pick. League rules mandate that Ivy schools just play 10 games, meaning Ivy teams always begin the season two and sometimes three weeks after their opponents have played their first game. "It's a problem that we start so late," Bagnoli said.

In the grand Gonzaga vision, Arizona would have gotten such a game from the Zags in their round-of-32 game in San Diego on Sunday night that perhaps they'd feel a little fear about a face-losing defeat as a No. 1 seed. Fear? The Zags mostly saw only fastbreaks, buzzing past them. And relentless defense. The top-seeded Wildcats ran the eighth-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs out of Viejas Arena, winning, 84-61, to advance to the NCAA regional semifinals up the freeway in Anaheim. "We love playing defense," freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said.
