NEW YORK - Aaron Bright came off the bench to spark Stanford to an NIT title. The sophomore point guard had 15 points and six assists in Thursday's 75-51 rout of Minnesota to earn most outstanding player honors, energizing the Cardinal just as the coaches had hoped when they took him out of the starting lineup in mid-February. "I give him all the credit, because it takes a player buying into something like that before it works, and he bought into his role," coach Johnny Dawkins said.

TJ Jones made a reaching 7-yard touchdown catch in overtime and No. 7 Notre Dame stopped Stanford inches from the goal line to beat the 17th-ranked Cardinal, 20-13, Saturday in South Bend, Ind. After Jones and Tommy Rees gave the Fighting Irish (6-0) a seven-point lead in overtime, Stanford (4-2) drove to a first and goal at the 4. Stepfan Taylor ran for 1 on first, 2 on second, and inches on third down. That left one play from inside the 1, and the Notre Dame defense, led by Carlos Calabrese, stood up Taylor and pushed him back.

HOUSTON - The jury that convicted former Texas tycoon R. Allen Stanford of operating a huge Ponzi scheme found Thursday that there was sufficient evidence that $330 million in frozen foreign bank accounts he controlled was stolen from investors, clearing the way for U.S. authorities to go after the funds. The decision in the criminal-forfeiture case followed Stanford's conviction Tuesday on 13 of 14 fraud-related counts for bilking investors out of more than $7 billion through the sale of certificates of deposit from his bank on the Caribbean island nation of Antigua.

Mosqueda-Lewis scored 19 points as UConn (11-0) thoroughly outplayed Stanford (11-1) on both ends of the floor in this highly touted game featuring the country's top programs and Final Four regulars from opposite coasts.

BRITTNEY GRINER and Baylor's path to a second straight national championship will have a familiar feel. Then again, so will the whole Women's NCAA Tournament. For the first time ever, the top four seeds are the same for consecutive seasons. Baylor, Connecticut, Notre Dame and Stanford all earned No. 1 spots when the field was announced Monday night. Unlike the men's side, where it was a topsy-turvy season with major upsets seemingly every week, women's basketball hasn't seen the same parity.
