RICHMOND, Va. -- For the third time this season, Towson University tried to rally to a victory over Georgia State. But last night, always playing from behind finally caught up to the Tigers. The No. 10 seed in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament wasn't relinquishing the lead on this occasion, and seventh-seeded Towson absorbed a first-round, 72-64 defeat at the Richmond Coliseum. Towson, which finished with a 12-16 record, twice came from behind during the regular season to defeat the Panthers, 66-62 and 70-69.

ATLANTA - Charles "Lefty" Driesell was the perfect fit. Georgia State had no national distinction. Driesell was a household name. Georgia State stood pat as the guaranteed victory on many schedules. Driesell arrived in 1997 and changed that in a hurry, inking wins against heavyweights like Georgia and St. Joseph's. By the 2000-2001 season he marched his team into the NCAA tournament and set a school record with 29 victories. During halftime of Friday's 88-56 win over South Alabama, Georgia State dedicated its home court at the GSU Sports Arena to Driesell, whose signature is engraved on the hardwood.

He doesn't sound, or act, much different than he did 15 years ago at Maryland or 30 years ago at Davidson. Maybe there are fewer hairs on his mostly bald head. Maybe the stage is smaller, the spotlight not as bright.The act, like Lefty Driesell himself, doesn't seem to get old."I'm just as fiery as I used to be," Driesell said in that familiar raspy twang over the telephone from Atlanta, where he is in his second season at Georgia State. "I like to win."Driesell, 66, will be going after the 700th victory of his never-boring, sometimes-controversial 37-year coaching career tonight.

Senior guard C.C. Williams, the smallest player on the court at 6 feet, made the biggest play of the night for Towson. His hands reaching above those of bigger, stronger players, Williams grabbed the game's final rebound with 3.5 seconds to play and put away the layup to cap a 58-57 comeback victory over visiting Georgia State last night. "A couple big guys were trying for the ball, but me being a senior, there was no better time to do something," said Williams, who had 12 points, nine assists and two rebounds.

HERNDON, Va. -- Lefty Driesell breezes into the lobby, his suit coat flapping. He has been on the go since 5 a.m., and it's nearly 9 p.m. now. He has driven from his home in Harrisonburg, Va., to Arlington, Va., and back to this restaurant near Dulles International Airport.He has seen four prospective recruits, including one who kept him waiting for more than 90 minutes. He got lost at least once, and now he's behind schedule. There is still more to do before his 7 a.m. flight to Memphis, Tenn.

Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon impressed many people -- this sports blogger included -- during Wednesday's introductory press conference. But he made a strong impression on Lefty Driesell, who coached Maryland from 1969 to 1986, long before Turgeon was picked to replace Gary Williams. Driesell was the coach at Georgia State when Turgeon coached at conference rival Jacksonville State from 1998 to 2000. Even though Driesell mean-mugged Turgeon before games (as Turgeon pointed out Wednesday)

We're on cruise control this week, with no changes in the top 13 even though Oregon, TCU and Auburn all had to serve detention for falling asleep in class. There never has been an easier week to have Boise State at No. 1 after the Broncos played Friday night lights out against Idaho. USC, our preseason No. 20, used a big win at Arizona to move up six spots to 19, while Texas A&M makes its debut just in time to host one-loss Nebraska. Utah, like Wile E. Coyote, walked off a cliff, stood there for a second with a dumbfounded look, then dropped like an Acme anvil ... poof.

Twenty-five major college teams remain undefeated, not all are equal, and only one can win this season's national title. In fact, the title might not go to any of the 25. A one-loss team — say Iowa, which was brave enough to risk a nonconference game at Arizona — might have the backbone to fight back. Know this: Early-season records and statistics in college football are only slightly less fraudulent than pro wrestling. Pass completions against Georgia State — which plays at Alabama on Nov. 18 — count just as much as they do against Georgia Tech.

"I'm happy with the effort the girls put forth today," coach Joe Mathews said. "They really seem to be coming together and playing the type of basketball we are capable of. Shanae and Katrina played very well today, and our defense stepped up on Danyiell McKeller and did a nice job."

BOISE, Idaho - Even Gary Williams acknowledges that he was pulling for Lefty Driesell to make it to this game. Well, the Lefthander is here, with his folksy charm and effortless stream of one-liners and the same bald pate that once was an indelible part of College Park scenery. And when Williams and Driesell walk onto the Boise State University Pavilion court today, when Maryland and Georgia State continue a wild, opening weekend in the West region with a second-round battle that will yield a Sweet 16 member, two Terrapins eras will converge.

BOISE, Idaho -- The big men showed up, the little guys with the legendary coach caved in, and the Maryland Terrapins are delaying that flight home for the sweetest reason. One month after beginning a rescue of a season that was sliding out of control and pushing them onto the NCAA tournament bubble, the Terps are back in the Sweet 16. Yesterday's methodical, 79-60 drubbing of 11th-seeded Georgia State in the second round at the Boise State University Pavilion sent Maryland into the national tournament's second weekend, where it will face Georgetown in the West Regional semifinals on Thursday at Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, Calif.
