Who's hot La Salle's Ramon Galloway has averaged 21.3 points in the three NCAA wins and is shooting 22 for 41 (.536) from the field and 12 for 23 from beyond the arc. Cleanthony Early, a 6-foot-8 junior, has averaged 18.5 points, 7 rebounds, and 26 minutes during Wichita State's NCAA wins over Pitt and Gonzaga.   Who's not La Salle sophomore guard D.J. Peterson has shot just 3 for 10 in the Explorers' three NCAA games. Wichita State center Ehimen Orukpe had just five rebounds in 30 minutes during the two NCAA wins.

WICHITA, Kan. - Ron Baker could have said anything. He could have posed and reinforced the point with a couple pounds to the chest. He could have raised a finger to proclaim himself No. 1 and it wouldn't have been far from the truth, because when you deliver dagger after dagger while scoring 16 points to knock off Gonzaga, college basketball's No. 1 team, to get to the Sweet 16, you earn the right to celebrate. Surrounded by pandemonium, Baker's mind was clear when his postgame interview with TNT's Jaime Maggio concluded.

LOS ANGELES - Cleanthony Early kept stealing glances down at the hat in his hands while he waited for his turn to climb the stepladder, scissors in hand. The Wichita State forward seemed stunned at the words embroidered on his brand new ball cap: "Final Four Atlanta. " "It's crazy. I still can't believe we're here," Early said. "You try to expect it, but you expect a lot of things that don't happen. This really happened. " Believe it. Wichita State is going to Atlanta, and these Shockers are no longer a surprise after the way the tenacious ninth seeds held off mighty Ohio State in the West Regional final.

IF YOU DON'T think Wichita State can get back to the Final Four, you either a) have not watched the Shockers play, or b) don't know much about basketball. I find the whole debate about Wichita silly. If going unbeaten in the regular season was easy, it would have been done more than twice in the last 23 seasons. I think Wichita is going to be 36-0 when they play in the Sweet 16. It is pretty clear nobody in the Missouri Valley can beat them so the Shockers are going to win "Arch Madness" in Saint Louis.

Transicoil, L.L.C., which makes aerospace instruments in Collegeville, Montgomery County, is in the process of laying off 50 employees because one product line is being shifted to a "sister company" in Wichita, Kan. As required by the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, Transicoil sent a letter to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry of regarding the permanent layoffs. The letter said the first of the 50 layoffs was to occur March 13. Four other employees have been notified they will lose their jobs between March 27 and May 9. "The remaining 45 employees will be separated at a date in the future which has not yet been determined," according to the company letter, dated March 13. Transicoil officials could not be reached for comment Friday evening.

VEGAS VIC has installed La Salle as a 10-1 shot to reach the Final Four. That's two more game-winning Southwest Philly Floaters for those kepping score. The Explorers are the Cinderellas out of the West Region to get to their first Final Four since 1955. But a win over Wichita State on Thursday, followed by a victory Saturday against either Ohio State or Arizona, gets them to Atlanta and pays off 10-1 for those who wager on La Salle between now and when Thursday's games tip off. Winning the national championship, which will require four more La Salle victories, is a much steeper 75-1.

LOS ANGELES - La Salle's exit path from this NCAA tournament seemed inevitable. Not when it would happen - nothing was predictable about this unforgettable and historic Explorers run - but how. When your second-tallest starter is 6-foot-5 and your first big man off the bench is 6-6, getting beaten inside is the obvious worry. "They got bigger. We got smaller," a La Salle administrator noted at one early timeout Thursday night when Wichita State subbed out a 6-8 guy for a 7-footer while the Explorers switched out a 6-8 for a 6-6. It wasn't just height that determined this NCAA Sweet 16 at the Staples Center.

The Kixx turned to an unlikely offensive source and a relative newcomer to survive a tougher-than-expected NPSL match, outlasting Wichita, 9-8, yesterday before a crowd of 6,485 at the First Union Spectrum. Scott Lawler scored twice - for just his third and fourth goals of the season. Jean Harbor, playing in his fifth game with the Kixx after coming over from Florida in a trade last month, assisted on both Lawler scores and added a key power-play goal in the second half. Fighting to maintain their East Division lead with an injury-depleted roster, the Kixx (15-14)

ARLINGTON, Texas - I liked four teams when this NCAA Tournament began - Wichita State, Louisville, Michigan State and Florida. Kentucky has beaten two of them, Connecticut the other two. Now, what? The seeds stopped mattering when the games started. Add these seeds up and you get 15. Watch and analyze the 10 games UK and UConn have played in this tournament and you get the teams that have performed the best now playing for the championship. I have been in the building for each of UConn's five wins.

THE NCAA Tournament Selection Committee had consecutive very bad Sundays. The group of well-meaning men and one woman simply did not understand how to put a balanced bracket together. They spent all their time rewarding teams for November and December performance rather than lining up teams on how they were likely to play in late March and April. The group is in desperate need of an oddsmaker and somebody who really understands the game, preferably both. I thought there were six teams with enough talent and firepower to beat Wichita State in this tournament.

Fred VanVleet scored 22 points, and No. 2 Wichita State remained the nation's lone unbeaten after defeating Indiana State, 83-69, in St. Louis on Sunday in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament final. Wichita State (34-0) matched the NCAA record for victories to start the season held by UNLV in 1990-91 after going 18-0 in the conference regular season. Manny Arop and Justin Gant had 18 points apiece for second-seeded Indiana State (23-10). Maryland 75, Virginia 69 - The host Terrapins (17-14, 9-9)

It has been 23 years since a team reached 30-0, something No. 2 Wichita State did when it became the first Division I basketball team to reach 30 wins in the regular season when it defeated Bradley, 69-49, earlier this week. The Shockers, at this point - despite a weak schedule that features just one good win against St. Louis - have nothing to prove to their detractors who think they should not be a top seed in the NCAA tournament. The Shockers have one more regular-season game against Missouri State this weekend, and nobody in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament likely represents more than a speed bump on the way to entering March Madness undefeated.

MY GUESS is this goes back to 1979 when Indiana State was unbeaten all the way to the national championship game. By then, college basketball was starting to become a national sport and, with that, came the prejudice against the terrific unbeaten or near-unbeaten team from a non-power conference. Larry Bird's team had doubters all the way to the game against Michigan State. The great 1989-90 La Salle team could never crack the Top 10 even though it lost only once in the regular season and three of its starters eventually played in the NBA. Two years ago, Murray State was 23-0 and was No. 9 in the poll.

There were no immediate reports of injuries caused by the funnel cloud that touched down late Sunday afternoon in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond before moving off to the northeast, or the one that touched down...

ATLANTA - Every once in a while, the reality is better than the anticipation. Saturday night's Final Four at the Georgia Dome gave us a comeback from a team striving for greatness against an underdog team that played great, followed by a team that attacked a defense that seemed impregnable and held on as the clock approached midnight.   Game 1: Louisville 72, Wichita State 68 The Shockers would have beaten any team in America - except Louisville. They were so good for so long that a team without great will would have caved.

ATLANTA - Louisville already had the bigger names, the better team and some unfinished business after coming up short in last year's Final Four. All Wichita State had was the cute-and-cuddly underdog angle. Now the Shockers don't even have that. Kevin Ware is everybody's favorite player since he suffered a broken leg in gruesome fashion last weekend yet summoned the strength to encourage his teammates, and having him at the Final Four has given the top-seeded Cardinals (33-5)
