There was plenty of preseason talk about Memphis losing its Super Glued-on crown in Conference USA. Tulsa was the popular pick to possibly unseat the perennial champion Tigers, who looked solid enough to reclaim the conference title until a loss at Massachusetts on Dec. 19. Alabama-Birmingham was hardly part of the debate. Until this week. Following up on last season's 22-victory season, the Blazers are 11-1 and cracked into the Associated Press Top 25 on Monday for the first time since 2005-06 with impressive victories over then-No.

WASHINGTON - Shouts of "We are Marshall!" rang out in the lobby of the team's downtown Washington hotel, where exuberant, green-clad fans of the Thundering Herd had gathered on the eve of Friday's Military Bowl matchup against Maryland in Annapolis. The Thundering Herd, from Conference USA, may not be as well known as Maryland, which is playing its last game before joining the Big Ten next season. But the Terps (7-5) know that Marshall (9-4) - which averages 43 points and 502.3 yards per game and is vying for its first 10-win season since 2002 - will pose a difficult test at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The expansion of the Atlantic Coast Conference has sparked a chain reaction that could lead Navy to join one of three football leagues, although the academy appears in no rush to abandon its position as one of the nation's few remaining independent programs. Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk is talking with officials from the Big East, Conference USA and the Mid-American Conference about the possibility of the Midshipmen's uniting with one of the groups. Sources familiar with Navy's situation said the academy is being approached more aggressively by the MAC and Conference USA, while the Big East is fading as a potential dance partner with the Mids.

Dave Dickerson has a dilemma this week going into Friday's opening-round NCAA tournament game between Maryland and Houston in Spokane, Wash. Will he root for the school where he played four years, earned his degree and won a national championship as an assistant coach? Or will the fourth-year Tulane coach pull for a fellow member of Conference USA? Don't ask. "It's going to be an interesting matchup for me. I'm right in the middle of this thing," said Dickerson, who played at Maryland for Lefty Driesell and Bob Wade from 1985 through 1989.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -Maryland's NCAA tournament run became the Greivis Vasquez reality show yesterday. The excitable junior guard is expected to be the focus of the Memphis defense today when the Tigers (32-3), who have won 26 games in a row, play the Terrapins (21-13) in a second-round game. Memphis coach John Calipari yesterday called the 6-foot-6 Vasquez "crafty" and "multidimensional" and named four Tigers - including 6-9 forward Robert Dozier - who might guard him. But the attention the Tigers devote to Vasquez will pale in comparison to the interest he drew from the media after Maryland's closed practice at Sprint Center.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Kenyon Martin heard the pop as he attempted to pivot on his right leg. As Cincinnati trainer Jayd Grossman approached him, Martin told him he was sure the ankle was broken. It was. First, the ligament between his tibula and fibula bones had snapped, and then the fibula was fractured. Along with -- almost certainly -- the top-ranked Bearcats' hopes of a national championship. It happened with no warning, three minutes into Cincinnati's quarterfinal game yesterday with Saint Louis in the Conference USA tournament.
