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.

TEMPLE 78, CENTRAL FLORIDA 64 After the game, Erica Covile was presented with a game ball commemorating her 1,000th point. A workman's hardhat might have been more appropriate.

Temple could have made a definitive NCAA statement, but instead the Owls are left having to rebound for the second straight year after a difficult loss at Tulsa. The Owls fell to 17-10 overall and 11-4 in the American Athletic Conference with Tuesday's 74-55 loss at Tulsa. A year ago, Temple also lost, 55-39, late in the season at Tulsa's Reynolds Center. It was the Owls' lowest scoring output of that season. Even though the Owls entered Wednesday still in first place in the AAC, they could have put a stranglehold on the position with a win.

TULSA, Okla. - Fran Dunphy saw an unfamiliar Temple basketball team on Tuesday night. The veteran coach's basketball squad had uncharacteristic turnover issues, which forced the Owls to turn to full-court pressure. It turned into a recipe for a tough night and led to a 74-55 loss at Tulsa. "We turned it over eight times in the second half. That's not our M.O., that's not what we do and it leads to easy run-outs for this team that loves to run it up and down the floor," Dunphy said.

Temple remains in the hunt for an NCAA basketball berth, and one of the reasons is the Owls' ability to win the close games. For the fourth time in the last six games, Temple won by five points or fewer Sunday in a 69-66 comeback win at Houston. That improved the Owls to 17-9 overall and kept them in first place in the American Athletic Conference with an 11-3 mark. They don't have much time to savor the win since Temple must visit Tulsa (18-9, 10-5) in an AAC matchup Tuesday night.

Last season a true nemesis to Temple's basketball team was Tulsa. The Golden Hurricane beat the Owls in both meetings and played a major role in keeping Temple from earning an NCAA berth. (The Owls were the 69th team in a 68-team tournament). Temple, 0-4 lifetime against Tulsa, will host the Golden Hurricane in Thursday's 7 p.m. American Athletic Conference game at the Liacouras Center. Both teams are tied for second place, along with Cincinnati, in the AAC with 6-3 marks, although that is really like being tied for first.
