JamesOn Curry hesitated for a split second, then jumped and let loose a three-pointer right in front of his coach's seat. When the shot fell through, the 19-year-old freshman didn't keep his excitement inside. He pumped his fist as he walked toward midcourt, giving second-seeded Oklahoma State the boost it needed in its 63-50 win over Southeastern Louisiana yesterday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament's Chicago Regional The Cowboys move on to play Southern Illinois tomorrow.

DAYTON, Ohio - Iowa State came up a half-second short of yet another wild West upset. Making it hurt even more, the nation's leaders in three-point shots ended up being beaten by a trey. Aaron Craft dribbled in place as the clock ran down and hit a three-pointer with a half-second left Sunday, sending second-seeded Ohio State to a 78-75 victory and a school-record fourth straight trip to the round of 16. Tenth-seeded Iowa State (23-12) overcame a late 13-point deficit by hitting threes - the Cyclones' specialty - but couldn't stop the one that made the difference.

It was November 1986, and college basketball coaches were in an uproar. "Send the NCAA petitions," Villanova's Rollie Massimino cried. "It's idiotic," La Salle's Speedy Morris opined. "A travesty," Southern California's George Raveling decreed. Jim Boyle of St. Joseph's felt duped, claiming he had not known that he was voting on an official rule change. Then these disgruntled coaches had their worst fears realized, and even before the season officially began.

Nostalgic for those cheapo hitchhiker pictures that schlockmeister Roger Corman used to make? You know, grade-Z movies in which close-ups of burning rubber substitute for car chases and crashes? Well, The Drifter - which Corman executive-produced - is a yupscale version: In this, obscene phone calls substitute for plot. On her way from San Francisco to L.A., pert fashion designer Julie (played by All My Children star Kim Delaney) gets a flat. Naturally, Trey (Miles O'Keeffe), the road-warrior hitchhiker she's just bypassed, changes her tire.

For the La Salle Explorers, it was about a night of streak-snapping. With their 65-44 victory at Massachusetts last night, La Salle (14-7, 6-4 Atlantic 10) clinched its first non-losing season since 1992-93 and broke the hosts' 12-game win streak at the Mullins Center. Darnell Harris scored 12 of his team-high 14 points in the second half and Mike St. John added eight of his 13 as the Explorers pulled away. Harris buried a trio of three-point shots and scored off his own steal as La Salle blew out to a 44-28 lead about 8 minutes into the second half.

It was the best of both worlds. Dawan Robinson, a 6-2 senior guard for Martin Luther King High's basketball team, could beam and slap five and not feel the slightest bit guilty. Robinson is the Public League scoring champ. He is also part of the first King team to reach giddy heights in almost two decades. Early last evening, before an overflow crowd, Robinson scored nine of his 27 points in a 20-12 fourth quarter to lift the Cougars past visiting Olney, 62-59. The effort finalized Robinson's average at 31.5 (13 games, 410 points)

ONE THING about an extra-long winning streak: It can be just as bad as good. "It's great to keep winning like this," Hanif Sutton said. "But it also makes for a lot of pressure. Even teams that don't do too well against inferior teams are really going to be coming after you. They're going to give you their best shot. " Did someone say best shot? Last night at the fabled Palestra, Ss. Neumann-Goretti posted a bunch of those early and wound up (mostly) not having much trouble in besting Roman Catholic, 73-56, in a Catholic League semifinal.

Lower Merion put forth a balanced scoring effort in Friday night's PIAA District 1 Class AAAA boys' basketball quarterfinal vs. Neshaminy. Problem was, on the other end, the Aces fouled the wrong player and did it too many times. Ryan Arcidiacono, a junior sharpshooter and Villanova recruit, feasted at the free-throw line, draining 17 of 20 attempts en route to 33 points, and the host Redskins notched a hard-earned, 64-61 victory at Fred Gerst Gymnasium to gain their first berth in the district semifinals.

IN ITS FINAL basketball season, Conwell-Egan High last night came oh-so-close to posting only its second Catholic League playoff victory. Pat Hagenbach was having none of it. With the clock about to hit 0:00, Hagenbach took a pass on the right wing from doubled teammate Sean Havink and swished a trey, lifting host Cardinal O'Hara to a 45-44 win in a first-round Catholic League playoff. Hagenbach had taken only three shots (making one) all night, but he was certainly confident after letting this one go, witness that he backpedaled toward halfcourt while waiting to be swarmed.

Coming out of the timeout, Tyrae Taylor had news for Mike Cubbage. "I told Mike, 'I'm going to be open in the corner, get it to me and I'll knock it down,' " Taylor said. The Winslow Township junior guard proved to be equal parts prognosticator and playmaker. Taylor's three-pointer from the left corner lifted Winslow Township to a 62-59 victory over Timber Creek in an instant classic in the South Jersey Group 3 semifinals on Friday. Cubbage, a senior guard, delivered the perfect pass that led to Taylor's game-winning shot with 0:03 on the clock and also scored all 13 of his points in the second half for fifth-seeded Winslow Township (14-14)

Antwuan Butler had perhaps the worst seat in the house moments after his game-winning three-pointer splashed in and gave Del-Val Charter a 64-63 victory Thursday night against visiting Martin Luther King. The 6-foot sophomore guard hit the ground after releasing a heavily contested, step-back three on the right wing opposite Del-Val's bench. Flat on his back with his vision somewhat obscured, Butler still managed a peek as the ball swished through the net. His first thought: "Did I really make it?"

When the Eagles released James Casey, who served as a third tight end in addition to special-teams duties in 2014, Trey Burton knew there was a chance for him to seize that role - if he could, and if it still existed. Neither of those things was guaranteed. "This season was a little different mind-set for me," said Burton, who was a rookie last season and became a dependable, if unsung, special-teams performer. "It's all about not feeling complacent. I definitely want to make an impact on this team both offensively and special teams-wise.

GREEN BAY - As an undrafted rookie last year, Trey Burton showed he could be indispensable on special teams, both blocking a punt that was recovered for a touchdown and recovering a blocked punt for a touchdown. This year, Burton wants to prove he can be an important asset at tight end. He took a step in that direction Saturday night at Lambeau Field, notching a pair of touchdown passes among his four catches for 21 yards. "With one hand!" quarterback Mark Sanchez said, when asked about Burton's second scoring grab, on which he was far down the progressions, but found an opening in the end zone, over the middle.

Coach Derek Lewis knew that Trey Burton could excel at tight end for Florida, but in 2010 he couldn't persuade the freshman to trade six spots for one. Burton shuffled from wide receiver to running back to fullback to slot receiver to stand-up tight end, and even started at quarterback against Florida State. Against Kentucky, Burton set a school record with six touchdowns, five on the ground and one in the air. As the only first-year starter that season, he led Florida with 12 touchdowns, more than a fourth of the team's season total.

If ever there were a complicated male bill of soul-hop singers and MCs, Wednesday's show featuring Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and Tyga at Wells Fargo Center was it. Tyga is known for supposedly dating Kylie Jenner of Kardashian/Jenner family fame. If the Bruce Jenner news wasn't bad enough, Tyga got Twitter-dissed by Philly's Amber Rose (ex-Mrs. Wiz Khalifa!) for leaving his baby mama for young Kylie Jenner. It's hip-hop as soap opera. As for soapy drama, Chris Brown is the king: club shootings, Drake disses, his history with Rihanna, etc. Poor Songz - not known for anything but great singing, good abs, and racy lyrics.

The draft had just ended, and Trey Burton was fielding calls like most of the rookies who just missed out on being selected. He knew the Eagles were interested. The feeling was mutual. But the post-draft scramble for undrafted rookies is a free-for-all, and while Burton's multiposition four years at Florida might have lowered his draft stock, it would certainly make him an appealing addition to any training camp. The Eagles had more in mind than just a camp body, though, and Burton envisioned as much, because of his familiarity with Chip Kelly's offense.

Missing is contagious. That's what coach Ashley Jones often reminds the members of her Central girls' basketball team. It's a phrase that resonated with senior guard Kayla Henderson. The idea is to be mindful of the shots you take during a game - to be careful with the basketball on every possession. The Lancers didn't have to worry about missing many shots on Friday afternoon, as Central hit eight three-pointers on its way to a 55-46 victory over Public League rival Northeast.
