The New York experience that Drexel's basketball players will never forget continues today. After giving top-ranked Duke all it could handle before bowing, 78-68, on Wednesday night, Drexel (3-1) meets 16th-ranked UCLA (3-1) today at 4:30 p.m. in the NIT Season Tip-Off consolation game. UCLA lost to 11th-ranked Memphis, 88-80, Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. First, Duke; now, UCLA. What a schedule. Asked what playing these national-caliber teams does for Drexel's program, coach Bruiser Flint said last night: "We showed we played good basketball.

LOS ANGELES - UCLA fired Ben Howland on Sunday night after 10 seasons as Bruins coach that included three Final Four appearances, but culminated with another early-round exit from the NCAA tournament. Athletic director Dan Guerrero told Howland earlier in the day that he was out. Howland had a 233-107 record in Westwood, including three consecutive Final Four appearances from 2006-08 and four Pac-12 championships, including this season. The Bruins' season ended last Friday with an 83-63 loss to Minnesota in the NCAA Tournament.

Ryann Krais has set state records, owns almost every Methacton High track and field record, and has won at the Penn Relays. Now Krais, one of the most accomplished female track athletes in southeastern Pennsylvania history, will take her considerable skills to UCLA next fall. The Methacton senior almost singlehandedly won the PIAA Class AAA girls' outdoor track championship last May, accruing 30 of her team's 36 points by winning the 100-meter hurdles (setting a new meet record of 13.73 seconds)

Don't expect Connecticut to have much sympathy for UCLA's perceived burden of living up to past glory. The Huskies don't have a legacy of 10 national championships. They have never even been to a Final Four. But the pressure of high expectations is something the guys from Storrs, Conn., are extremely familiar with. "I think we kind of created a monster early in the season, because we were beating teams by 20 and 30 points," UConn senior forward Donny Marshall said. "There are a lot of expectations on our team.

Florida State (50-16) plays Arizona (44-17) on Thursday, needing to beat the Wildcats twice to reach the championship round. Second-seeded UCLA (48-16) was knocked out a day after No. 1 Florida was eliminated from the other bracket. Sitz (4-3) had not made it through five innings in six of his previous seven outings.

For eight minutes last night, the 12th-seeded, lightly regarded New Mexico State Aggies stared NCAA Tournament history in the pupils. With 12:49 remaining, large headlines announcing the elimination of the top seed in the West, looked possible. New Mexico State players were running and gunning and hitting three- pointers and double-pump slamming to end fastbreaks. It was NCAA Tournament madness at its best. A 16-point UCLA halftime lead had been whittled to six and The Pit, on the campus of the University of New Mexico, was vibrating to the noise of 15,914 rooting for the underdog from Las Cruces.

It was the determining subplot of the NCAA West Regional playoffs. Sort of like a full-throttle match race involving a Ferrari and a Lamborghini. In the semifinals, the University of Maryland thought it could run with anybody. The third-seeded Terrapins found out how wrong they were in a 99-89 loss to second-seed Connecticut. Saturday, in the West Regional championship game, the eighth-ranked Huskies learned the same lesson against No. 1-ranked UCLA. Proving themselves the quickest draw in the West, the Bruins outsprinted the Huskies, 102-96, in front of a sold-out crowd of 14,399 at the Oakland- Alameda County Coliseum.

UCLA center Jelani McCoy, the school's career leader in blocked shots, quit the team yesterday, citing "intense media scrutiny" in the past several months. McCoy, a junior, was suspended for violation of athletic-department policies and team rules in late September and reinstated to playing status in late December. School officials never specified what those violations were. News reports indicated that he was suspended for using marijuana. "McCoy stated that the intensive media scrutiny and pressure that he has endured for many months has exacted a toll on himself and his family that was proving disruptive to his ability to concentrate on playing basketball," a UCLA statement said.

UCLA's unpredictable season will last another game, thanks to a lot of flashy offense, a little tough defense and the late arrival of Jason Kapono. Kapono scored all of his 17 points in the second half and Earl Watson had 12 assists while leading a strong second-half offensive attack as sixth-seeded UCLA beat 11th-seeded Ball State, 65-57, last night. The Bruins' tournament hopes were all but dead before they won their last six games and beat top-ranked Stanford during the season's final three weeks.

NEW YORK - U.S. Women's national team soccer coach Jill Ellis went to the top when looking for coaching inspiration. Before joining U.S. Soccer full time, Ellis enjoyed a successful 12-year run as head coach at UCLA from 1999 to 2010. While coaching at UCLA, she received some never forgotten advice from the late John Wooden, the Wizard of Westwood, who guided the UCLA men's basketball team to 10 national titles in a 12-year period. Both Ellis, 48, and the national team are under immense pressure to earn America's first World Cup title since 1999.

TOM BRADLEY, who had been at Penn State forever, isn't answering any more questions about the Jerry Sandusky scandal. "I think all those questions have been answered years ago," Bradley told the Associated Press. "I'm here to help UCLA and these players be the best players they can possibly be. " The Bruins' new defensive coordinator under head coach Jim Mora still bleeds blue and white. Which you would expect from a guy who spent 32 years as an assistant to Joe Paterno. That was after playing defensive end for four seasons for the Lions.

INDIANAPOLIS - Here are my suggestions as you get set to watch Kentucky try for 40-0 at the Final Four. Ignore the slogans: "one and done," "succeed and proceed," "players' first program. " Forget what you remember of John Calipari at Massachusetts. Don't get caught up in the morality play that some of these players are not really students or at least not for long. Look at college basketball at the top levels in 2015 the way it should be looked at - as a big business. The Kentucky coach recognized that when he got the highest-pressure job in the game and created a model that is built for short-term students and long-term success.

INDIANAPOLIS - Eric Kendricks has a tiny scar on his left cheek. He can't specifically remember the flying object that caused the gash that left the scar. But he definitely knows who was responsible. His older brother Mychal. "I think it was a rock," he said. "It definitely was something that was thrown. " The Kendricks brothers were born 17 months apart and spent a good portion of their childhood and adolescence doing what brothers close in age do - fighting and competing and destroying pretty much everything in their path.

INDIANAPOLIS - Chip Kelly once preferred Brett Hundley to Marcus Mariota. But Hundley chose UCLA and Kelly settled on Mariota, and somewhere over the next three years Oregon proved to get the better college quarterback. Mariota is also expected to be the better NFL prospect and likely out of reach for Kelly and the Eagles, who have the 20th overall selection in the first round of the NFL draft. But Hundley should be available when the Eagles pick, and possibly in the second or third round, as well.

IN YESTERDAY'S late rounds of the MLS SuperDraft, the Union reeled in two players it hopes will bolster its defensive depth. First up was UCLA defender Aaron Simmons, with the ninth pick of the third round (No. 51 overall). The 6-1 native of Albuquerque, N.M., helped the Bruins reach last season's NCAA College Cup title game, where they lost to a Virginia squad that featured second-round Union pick Eric Bird. "In Simmons, we got a kid that can play centerback, is comfortable at defensive midfield and can compete athletically," Union manager Jim Curtin said in a statement.

OK, SO who among the playoff contenders are most likely to squander their opportunity? It happens almost every year. Somebody loses late to open things up for next up on the food chain. You don't always know the who part, just that, somewhere out there, dreams will go poof. With a selection committee now being asked to identify the four finalists for the inaugural tournament, it only adds to the probability. The lone certainty is that Alabama, Oregon and Florida State are in the pole positions.

She's also an author, having detailed her struggles and triumphs in her autobiography, A Kind of Grace . Friday, the down-to-earth star will speak about "Running the Race with Grace and Humility On and Off the Track" at West Chester University.
