Some of the UCLA Bruins were so unimpressed by their first-round matchup with Tulsa, they acknowledged they didn't even know where the city was located. Those Bruins might not know where they are now, after a stunningly easy, 112-102 victory by the 12th-seeded Golden Hurricane yesterday in the first round of the Midwest Regional at the Myriad. "Geographically, they still may not know," Tulsa guard Alvin Williamson said after the rout. "But I think they know now we have a pretty good basketball team.

Oklahoma's rise to No. 1 could end up being short-lived. The Sooners, who moved into a tie with Miami this week in The Associated Press Top 25 poll, were inconsistent on offense throught the game in beating host Tulsa, 37-0, last night. Senior tailback Quentin Griffin ran for a career-high 237 yards on just 17 carries, and freshman Kejuan Jones had 70 yards and two short touchdown runs. But Jason White threw two interceptions, including one in the end zone, and several dropped balls and other mistakes made for a sloppy performance.

There were two ways to look at the game. The losing coach could look back and remember. Or look forward and believe. Phil Martelli chose to look forward. His St. Joseph's team had played well against Tulsa, a veteran team that had beaten its first three opponents this season by nearly 35 points per game and lost to Duke in the second round of the 1999 NCAA Tournament. The Hawks had done enough good things to beat a lot of teams. And the Golden Hurricane made them do just enough wrong that winning was within sight and just out of reach.

John Hopper hadn't been in Tulsa, Okla., a full day when he concluded that all cities are not alike. "They call it a city, but their city is more spread out than our suburbs," Hopper said. "It's clean and nice to walk around, too. " The second thing Hopper figured out was that he didn't need to visit any other cities to know where he would play college football. At a Sunday morning breakfast on Jan. 15, less than two days after he'd arrived, Hopper gave University of Tulsa coach Dave Rader a verbal commitment to attend school there and to play football for the Golden Hurricanes.

A cloudless Oklahoma afternoon is about to fade, and a hunter's moon, worthy of wolves, considers an appearance. The sun has melted like butter, and deep inside the large stone building it is cool as autumn shade. Dan McPike, a rumpled, middle-aged museum curator, fusses with locked doors until he is able to allow his visitors into the windowless basement room. It is a large chamber, but appears cramped and is filled with shelves and display cases bearing the invaluable treasures that a few thousand years ago were common household items used in the daily routine of some now-extinct culture.

How lucky that the makers of "Keys to Tulsa" finished their movie in time for a 1997 release, thus qualifying it for consideration as Worst Movie of the Millennium. This stinker stars Eric Stoltz as a disinherited Tulsa heir mixed up in an attempt by the husband (James Spader) of an old flame (Deborah Kara Unger) to blackmail the son of an oil baron (James Coburn). The characters exist in a world of decadent, drunken wealth. It is a world without moral or ethical structure, except for a few PC guidelines, which are are strictly observed and enforced.

No. 20 Kansas got back to basics to get back to its winning ways. The Jayhawks, who had lost three of their past four games to tumble from the No. 2 spot in the rankings, outmuscled No. 17 Tulsa on the inside and harassed the host Golden Hurricane on the perimeter in an 89-80 victory last night. Nick Collison had 26 points and 12 rebounds for Kansas (4-3). Wayne Simien and Keith Langford scored 19 each, and the Jayhawks forced 22 turnovers to hand Tulsa its first loss. "They were just more aggressive, hustled, got every loose ball and just beat us in the second half," Tulsa coach John Phillips said.

Kellen Moore threw two short touchdown passes to Tommy Gallarda, and No. 5 Boise State survived a late scare from Tulsa to escape with a 28-21 victory last night in one of the last road tests standing between the undefeated Broncos and the BCS. With Boise State (6-0) trailing for the first time all season, Moore was perfect on two scoring drives to put the Broncos ahead to stay. Tulsa (4-2) got within 28-21 in the fourth quarter when G.J. Kinne and Slick Shelley connected on consecutive passes for 91 yards, including a 55-yarder for a touchdown.

IT SHOULD BE comforting to G.J. Kinne that he is still here and has a chance to stick around for a third season. There is nothing Chip Kelly likes more than a weapon he can use in more than one way, and Kinne, a practice squad quarterback the past two years, is now a wide receiver, who also takes reps with the running backs. And maybe most crucially, Kinne still has a year of practice squad eligibility, as he gets his new-position feet under him. But viewed another way, this training camp has to be terrifying.

CHARLIE WILSON first came to prominence in the late 1970s as the frontman for the Gap Band, formed by Wilson and his brothers, Robert and Lonnie, in 1967 in their hometown of Tulsa, Okla. The siblings came by their musicality as the sons of a Pentecostal minister who insisted that his children learn to play various instruments. The band originally bore the name Greenwood, Archer and Pine Street Band, which was subsequently shortened to the G.A.P. Street Band. A printing error on an advertisement for a gig identified the unit as "The Gap Band," and the brothers claimed the name.

MEMPHIS WILL be without leading scorer Austin Nichols for Friday's AAC quarterfinal game against Temple. Nichols, a 6-8 sophomore forward averaging 13.3 points and 6.1 rebounds, sustained an ankle bone bruise on Feb. 28 against Tulsa. Tigers coach Josh Pastner said Nichols will not play at all in the conference tournament, but could be available should Memphis advance to the postseason. The Tigers (18-13) almost surely have to win the AAC to make it to the NCAA Tournament. Counting the Tulsa game, Memphis is 1-2 since Nichols went down.

IN HIS first eight seasons at Temple, Fran Dunphy made the NCAA Tournament six times. In those seasons his teams lost back-to-back games in February only once. That was back in 2009. And those Owls would win the next five after that to get their second consecutive Atlantic 10 championship. A week ago, these Owls were riding a seven-game winning streak. Then they lost at SMU and Tulsa, the top two teams in the American Conference standings. So, what now? Well, the good news for the Owls (19-9, 10-5)

With three games left in the regular season, two of Temple's top scorers have gone into a shooting funk. For the Owls to win their remaining games and keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive, senior Jesse Morgan and junior Quenton DeCosey will need to start hitting shots again. DeCosey is second on the team in scoring (12.1 points per game) and Morgan is right behind him (12.0). Both have hit numerous big shots this season, but they haven't done much lately. In his last six games, DeCosey shot 14 for 52 (26.9 percent)

Over his 26 years as a head college basketball coach, first at Penn, then at Temple, Fran Dunphy has guided 15 teams to the NCAA tournament, and some of those journeys were easier than others. Sometimes his teams coasted into the tournament, as the Quakers did winning nine Ivy League regular-season championships and earning the accompanying automatic berths. Sometimes they had to white-knuckle it, as the Owls did in running the table at the Atlantic Ten tournament in 2008 and 2009.

TULSA, Okla. - Temple has zero margin for error concerning the NCAA tournament after a performance Sunday in which its shooting was even colder than the brisk Oklahoma weather. The Owls' lack of proficiency from the perimeter enabled Tulsa to defeat Temple, 55-39, in an American Athletic Conference game before 5,130 at the Reynolds Center. The Owls went 0-2 on this critical two-game road trip against the AAC's top two teams, starting with a 67-58 loss Thursday at Southern Methodist.

DALLAS - Nearly two weeks ago, Temple's basketball team faced what was considered a must-win American Athletic Conference game with Cincinnati. The Owls had lost their first game to the Bearcats, and another loss would have given Cincinnati a clear edge in the eyes of the NCAA selection committee. Temple won that game at home, 75-59. The scenario is similar when Temple (19-8, 10-4 AAC) visits Tulsa (18-7, 11-2) Sunday at 6 p.m. Tulsa earned a 63-56 win on Jan. 10 over Temple at the Liacouras Center.
