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.

JIM MORA HAD a lot of very compelling reasons to tell Andy Reid thanks but no thanks if he was offered the Eagles' defensive coordinator's job. You can start with the fact that he is being paid - and being paid quite handsomely - not to work. The Seahawks, who fired Mora just 1 year into a 4-year contract following the 2009 season, still owe him $8 million. The Great American Dream is to get fired by a dimwitted employer a year into a 4-year, $16 million contract. You still get the money, but don't have to put in the 16-hour days or put up with columnists and talk-show hosts calling you a village idiot.

WHILE IT never came to kicking and screaming, Tony Nayan did not go quietly. The last thing a shy, reserved kid wants to hear from his mother is that he'll have to switch high schools, especially when a change in cities is also part of the unappreciated package. Though Nayan, a 5-10, 145-pound senior wing guard for Northeast's basketball team, sports no accent, he spent his childhood in Bahston and still misses former friends and coaches. He's still kinda quiet, too. Guess what?

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.

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.

Trey Burke, the sophomore point guard who led Michigan to the Final Four, was named Thursday as the Associated Press' college basketball player of the year.

Jim Larranaga, who led Miami (29-7) to the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles, was selected as coach of the year.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Trey Burke was a 16-month-old toddler the last time Michigan was playing this late in the NCAA tournament. That regional final 19 years ago, a loss that ended the Fab Five era, was played in a building that no longer exists. Where Reunion Arena once stood near downtown Dallas is now a vacant lot about 20 minutes from where the Wolverines finally get another chance to get back to the Final Four. "It's definitely crazy," Burke said Saturday. "Just to get this program moving back in the right direction means a lot to us. " No. 4 seed Michigan (29-7)

ARLINGTON, Texas - Trey Burke shook off one of his worst starts with the best shot of his life. Burke bounced back from a scoreless first half to score 23 points, including a long, never-a-doubt three-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and Michigan rallied to beat Kansas, 87-85, in overtime in the South Regional semifinals Friday night. The fourth-seeded Wolverines wiped out a 10-point Kansas lead in the last three minutes of regulation, and Burke gave them their first lead since early in the game with another long three to open Michigan's scoring in overtime.
