Bob Knight has brushed aside other job opportunities to focus on Texas Tech. Ten days after Tech's president and athletic director approached Knight, the controversial basketball coach arrived in Lubbock yesterday for a three-day visit. "I've had contacts since talking to Texas Tech in different ways and I've just said I don't have any interest," the former Indiana coach said during a brief news conference last night. "This is a situation that appeals to me tremendously. " But at least 58 faculty members have put their names on an e-mail petition opposing Knight on grounds his well-publicized outbursts would cast a shadow on the school.

Fifth-ranked Texas and eighth-ranked Texas Tech advanced to the final of the Big Twelve tournament with victories last night in Dallas. Stacy Stephens had 20 points and 15 rebounds, leading Texas (24-5) to a 62-47 win over Colorado (22-7). Plenette Pierson scored 22 points as Texas Tech (25-4) rallied late to defeat No. 7 Kansas State (28-3), 71-65. Texas advanced to the conference finals for the first time since 2000, but it has never won the Big Twelve tournament. Texas Tech hasn't advanced to the league final since 1999, when the Red Raiders beat Iowa State to win their second straight Big Twelve title.

Texas Tech's defensive heat proved to be the perfect cure for a chilly December night. Visiting Lamar found itself on the receiving end of the No. 7 Lady Raiders' relentless defensive pressure last night as Tech limited the Lady Cardinals to 16-for-51 shooting en route to an 85-41 victory. "I thought we looked a little bit ragged at the first of the game, but after we settled in, I felt we played pretty well and made some good choices," Texas Tech coach Marsha Sharp said. "We wanted to continue to improve our offense and make some good decisions in it and find easy shots.

Tommy Tuberville says he's certain he can take Texas Tech to new heights. "There's no doubt in my mind we can take it to the next level," Tuberville said yesterday after being introduced as the new coach at Texas Tech, replacing the fired Mike Leach. The first step for the Red Raiders would be to win the Big 12 South outright, followed by a berth in a BCS bowl game and perhaps a shot at a national title. The former Auburn and Mississippi coach says the road to improvement includes improving on defense and adding a "few new wrinkles" to a pass-happy offense.

Texas Tech has its highest ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 in 32 years, and a chance to make another momentous leap coming up. The Red Raiders moved up two spots to No. 6 by overwhelming Kansas, 63-21 on Saturday. Texas Tech's next game is this Saturday night at No. 1 Texas. A second consecutive weekend when highly ranked teams ruled produced little change at the top of the media rankings. Texas is a unanimous No. 1 for the second week in a row, receiving all 65 first-place votes, and the rest of the top five remained the same: No. 2 Alabama, followed by Penn State, Oklahoma and Florida.

TEXAS TECH hired one of its own Wednesday, bringing back former Red Raiders quarterback Kliff Kingsbury to become the head coach. Kingsbury was offered the job in the afternoon and Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced the news with a video posted on Twitter not long after. "Wreck 'em Tech," Kingsbury said in the video, giving the school's Guns Up sign when the camera panned to him. Kingsbury was the offensive coordinator at Texas A & M, coaching Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, this year and was the first in a string of record-setting quarterbacks for the Red Raiders under former coach Mike Leach.

The nation's longest winning streak remains intact, but just barely. Texas Tech made only six field goals outside the lane and had just two baskets over the final 6 minutes, 47 seconds as it held off Northern Illinois, 74-73, last night in the NCAA East Regional. Jason Sasser had 21 points and seven rebounds as the third-seeded Red Raiders (29-1) won their 22nd straight game, their first in the NCAA Tournament in 20 years. "I don't think we played particularly bad; we just didn't shoot well," Texas Tech coach James Dickey said.

A monthlong layoff and an ankle injury did little to slow down Kliff Kingsbury. Kingsbury became the third Division I-A player to top 5,000 yards passing in a season, throwing for 375 and three touchdowns as Texas Tech defeated Clemson, 55-15, in the Tangerine Bowl last night in Orlando, Fla. "Five thousand yards, that's a big number," Kingsbury said. "That shows how well our offense played this season. " Texas Tech (9-5) won its first bowl game since beating Air Force in the 1995 Copper Bowl and gave coach Mike Leach his first postseason victory.

Brandon Mouton hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to force an extra frame, and Royal Ivey made two free throws with 17 seconds left in overtime to lift No. 16 Texas to a 62-61 victory over No. 13 Texas Tech in Lubbock last night. The loss ended the Red Raiders' 12-game winning streak. It was the seventh straight victory in Lubbock for the Longhorns (13-3, 4-1 Big Twelve). Mouton's 22-foot shot off a crosscourt inbounds pass with 2.6 seconds left in regulation tied the game at 55. "I didn't have much time to mess around with it," Mouton said.

For Bishop Eustace catchers, hitting is optional. Defense and leadership are mandatory. That's fine with Crusaders senior catcher Nate Steele. He has embraced his role for a young team with a staff of inexperienced pitchers. "As a catcher, that's how it works at Eustace," Steele said. Bishop Eustace coach Sam Tropiano "doesn't even care about how much you hit. You have to be a leader. " Steele batted a respectable .293 with seven doubles, two homers and 19 RBIs as a junior for a team that won 25 games and finished in the No. 1 spot in the Inquirer's Top 25. Steele had two of those RBIs in Bishop Eustace's victory over Eastern in the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic championship game.

1. Ohio State (5-0): Beat Indiana, 34-27. Saturday: vs. Maryland. If you have that running back, it might not matter who's the quarterback. Won at Maryland last year, 52-24. 2. Michigan State (5-0): Beat Purdue, 24-21. Saturday: at Rutgers. Hasn't looked as imposing since beating Oregon. Beat Rutgers last year at home, 45-3. 3. Texas Christian (5-0): Beat Texas, 50-7. Saturday: at Kansas State. OK, so maybe Texas isn't Texas Tech. Beat Kansas State by 21 last year at home. 4. Baylor (4-0)

JOSH HUFF returned to practice yesterday after a two-day absence caused by the death of a friend he called his "godbrother," but Huff said he didn't feel his mind was on practice, and he could not affirm that he will play tomorrow night's preseason game at Green Bay. Anthony Wayne Joyce II, who would have been 23 on Sept. 7, Huff said, died suddenly on Monday in Texas, where Huff grew up. Huff declined to discuss the details, but told the Eagles' website, "It's tough for me to accept that he did what he did. " This is not the first time since the wide receiver came to the Eagles as a 2014 third-round wideout from Oregon that he has experienced the loss of someone close to him, he acknowledged.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Considering that many of Penn's players weren't teenagers that last time the Quakers made the women's NCAA Tournament, history really had no bearing on their 79-61 loss to Texas yesterday, but it was part of the story line. In 2004, the Quakers' first-round opponent was eventual national champion Connecticut. The Quakers fell hard, 91-55. Yesterday, when freshman center Sydney Stipanovich sank a jump shot 20 seconds into the Quakers' 2014 first-round Louisville Regional game against Texas, Penn took a 2-0 lead.

WE ALL HAVE our stories. We all know how much bigger the Marcus Smart story would be if it took place here, in Philadelphia, if Jeff Orr were our Bubba and not Texas Tech's Bubba. Most of us have seen someone, some have been that someone, who has interpreted a ticket to a sporting event as a license to behave in a manner that would have us arrested, beaten up, fired and/or shunned if done outside the gate we entered. Orr, the Texas Tech fan Smart exchanged words with and famously pushed Saturday night during a game with Smart's Oklahoma State team in Lubbock, spends the time he is not commuting to watch Tech games as an air-traffic controller in his hometown of Waco.

ALABAMA, OREGON, Ohio State. It's no great shock that all three are still unbeaten. The same could even apply to Florida State, if you didn't think that trip to Clemson was going to get in the way. But hey, 'Bama could have lost at Texas A&M. OSU could've lost at Northwestern. Oregon could've lost at Washington. OK, maybe not so much. Then you've got (in poll order) Missouri, Baylor, Miami and Texas Tech, each also and-0. Sometimes you don't know. Missouri won at Georgia but lost its quarterback and used a freshman to beat Florida at home by 19. Now the Tigers host South Carolina, which saw its QB leave in a loss at Tennessee.

IN ITS FIRST five games, Temple scored 29 first-half points. The Owls have 46 in the last two, since true freshman P.J. Walker became their starting quarterback. Saturday against Army - in their first win since beating the same Cadets 11 months ago - the Owls (1-6, 0-3 AAC) scored on their opening drive for the first time this season. And they didn't have a penalty on that possession, another first. The next step takes them to SMU (2-4, 1-1) tomorrow. "I felt like we were finally able to get out of our own way," first-year coach Matt Rhule said.

ONE MONTH in, and 20 teams remain unbeaten. Some, of course, were more expected than others. So by no means are they created equal. The ACC and Pac-12 have the most with four apiece. Clemson and Florida State, OK. But Miami was 7-5 in 2012, and Maryland was 4-8. Maryland is at FSU this week. Miami is probably a home win over Georgia Tech away from getting to 7-0 by the time it goes to FSU early next month. Is it too early to start thinking wide left? On the West Coast you've got Oregon and Stanford.
