DAYTON, Ohio - An unexpected scoring spree lifted Siena to an 81-77 victory over Alcorn State last night in the NCAA tournament play-in game before 8,681 at the University of Dayton Arena. The win earned the Saints (17-18) a first-round East Regional date with top seed Maryland on Friday night. A career-high 31 points from junior guard Prosper Karangwa, picking up the slack for star forward Dwayne Archbold, highlighted the firepower for the Saints, who made the NCAA field by winning the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament and have now won five games in a row. Karangwa shot 12-for-16 and was clutch at the end. His three-point play - he was fouled while hitting a floating jumper - gave Siena a 79-74 lead with 43 seconds to go. Jeff Cammon hit a three-pointer for Alcorn State (21-10)

How long have you been wearing No. 9? Is there any significant meaning behind the No. 9? It all started in college. My brother [Fred] was the No. 9 before and went to Alcorn, where it was retired. I asked them if they could unretire it if I came out there. So they unretired it, and I've been wearing it ever since. [The number is retired once again at Alcorn State.] What was your number in high school? No. 11. Just a family tradition. My brother wore it, and everybody in my family who played quarterback wore number 11. What was your welcome-to-the-NFL moment?

Steve McNair is the politically correct choice for the Heisman Trophy -- and a legitimately correct choice, as well.How many passing yards must he compile before everyone agrees he's the best player in college football?How many times must we hear the argument that no Division I-AA player deserves the Heisman?How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?McNair is from a historically black college, but that's not why he should get the award -- the symbolic gesture would mean nothing in an age when black quarterbacks still face discrimination.

The NCAA rejected a petition from the Liberty Bowl to allow it to invite Alcorn State and Heisman Trophy-contending quarterback Steve McNair to the Dec. 31 game.The NCAA cited two reasons:* To qualify for a Division I-A bowl, a team must have at least six victories against I-A teams. Alcorn doesn't even play I-A teams.* Division I-AA has a championship game and the Braves (5-2) might qualify to play in it.
