NEW ORLEANS - Even after losing a key post player, the Kansas Jayhawks never doubted they had the ability to return to college basketball's top event. Even though they toil in the relative anonymity of Conference USA and had not participated in these surroundings in more than a quarter-century, the Marquette Golden Eagles envisioned themselves here months ago. Something must give tonight in a Final Four matchup with no shortage of subplots. Kansas, one of the game's more storied programs, has a first-team All-American in senior forward Nick Collison, a scrappy scorer and defender in senior guard Kirk Hinrich, and a 15-year success story in coach Roy Williams, who might not be working in Lawrence much longer.

Penn State took the lead in the first minute and never trailed, and an own goal by visiting No. 12 Hofstra led to an 8-7 upset win for the Nittany Lions on Saturday. The victory gave Penn State a winning record in its last regular season in the Colonial Athletic Association before a move to the Big Ten. It also made the Nittany Lions (7-6, 3-2), who cannot play in the CAA tournament, eligible for an at-large NCAA tournament bid. Attackman Mike Sutton scored the first two goals of the game for Penn State, and attackman Shane Sturgis scored three times in two minutes to help build a 6-4 halftime lead over the Pride (10-4, 4-1)

MINNEAPOLIS - Without a Super Bowl title since January 1980, it was already apparent that the rugged Steel Curtain defense of the Pittsburgh Steelers doesn't translate to this generation. Marquette's 77-74 win over Pittsburgh in the Midwest Regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament last night at the Metrodome proved the moniker doesn't work particularly well with college basketball, either. Having heard enough about the tough defense of the second-seeded Panthers, the third-seeded Golden Eagles shredded it in the second half, shooting 57 percent and making it to the free-throw line 19 times.

This has been a roller-coaster season for all of last year's Final Four teams. Despite some bumps along the ride, Texas and Kansas seem to be comfortably headed toward another NCAA tournament appearance. But the other two teams - defending national champion Syracuse and Marquette - still could be on the verge of going from the bubble to real trouble. Especially Marquette. After appearing to be in decent shape following a win two weeks ago at Louisville, Marquette (13-7 overall and 4-5 in Conference USA)

MINNEAPOLIS - Marquette players laughed and joked back in January, when they took tours of the Superdome arranged by head coach Tom Crean. From that quiet visit - around a New Orleans trip for a game at Tulane - they found out where the locker rooms were, how monstrous the structure is, where their bench was. "All you could see was the seats," Golden Eagles forward Todd Townsend said. Now, Marquette gets the return trip to the Superdome it wanted - a spot in the Final Four - thanks to a dazzling effort in another dome.

The wrestling team's banners of success cover nearly half of one wall at Owings Mills. The Golden Eagles have been one of the dominant Maryland programs for the past decade, and last night they earned yet another. Owings Mills became the first team to win back-to-back state titles in dual-meet competition as the second-ranked Golden Eagles scored a surprisingly easy 43-26 victory over visiting Beall in the Class 2A-1A state championship meet. The Golden Eagles now have won 29 matches in a row. This was the team's eighth appearance in the dual-meet finals and their ninth in the final four.

Chi-Chi Giraldo had just scored Towson's sixth goal of an eventual 7-3 soccer victory over Owings Mills when his coach, Randy Dase, said, "This score's more like in football."Certainly, the two teams played a run-and-shoot style of offense yesterday.Neither defense handled the opposing team's attack very well, but the Generals (3-0, 3-0) had more firepower, building a 5-2 halftime lead over the Golden Eagles (4-1, 2-1) in a wild Baltimore County 2A-1A matchup.Each coach viewed the game in a positive light.

Beth Glaros (Wilde Lake) scored six goals to lift No. 2 Maryland to a 19-10 victory over No. 6 Duke on Saturday. Glaros, a senior, nearly doubled her previous goal output for the season and added three draw controls, two ground balls and two caused turnovers to give the visiting Terps (6-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) their first conference win. Taylor Cummings (McDonogh) added a season-high five goals and had seven draw controls, three caused turnovers and a pair of ground balls.

Towson has made dramatic strides in the past year-plus, but it isn't up to the level of an elite team yet. The Tigers found that out the hard way Friday night at Phog Allen Fieldhouse as No. 2 Kansas roared out to a 33-point halftime lead on their way to an 88-58 nonconference win. Jayhawks freshman guard Andrew Wiggins shot 6-for-7 in the first half, nearly outscoring Towson by himself. He had 14 of his team-high 16 points during the opening 20 minutes as the Jayhawks established a 49-16 halftime margin.

A Marquette men's lacrosse player has been suspended from the team after being charged with attacking a university public safety officer while on the drug LSD, Inside Lacrosse reported today. Sophomore Charley Gargano, 20, a starting defenseman, faces a count of substantial battery with intent to cause harm after the incident Saturday. Gargano told investigators he "voluntarily ingested the hallucinogen lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) on four separate occasions" while attending a concert with friends and has no memory of committing the alleged attack, according to Fox 6 TV in Milwaukee.

The No. 6 Notre Dame men's lacrosse team overcame a slow start at home to defeat Big East rival Georgetown, 10-8, on Sunday afternoon. Senior attackman Sean Rogers paced the Fighting Irish offense with two goals and two assists. Notre Dame (9-2, 3-1) fell behind 4-0 by the 6:46 mark of the first quarter but responded with a 6-1 run to claim its first lead of the game early in the third quarter.

No. 7 Notre Dame made its argument Tuesday for why it still belongs in discussions about the best men's lacrosse team in NCAA Division I. One day removed from falling out of the top spot in The Baltimore Sun's rankings, the Fighting Irish (7-2) rolled to a 17-5 neutral-site victory over a less-experienced Golden Eagles (2-5) squad at Loyola Academy's Hoerster Field in Wilmette, Ill. The Golden Eagles, who started seven underclassmen - including a half-dozen freshmen - kept things close early after a fairly pedestrian first quarter in which both sides tried to control the tempo by being selective on the attacking end. Co-captain Ben Dvorak got Marquette on the scoreboard with 40 seconds left in the opening quarter to tie the score at 1. It didn't stay even for long, however, as Notre Dame's John Scioscia ended the first quarter with the first of his six goals on the day. The score remained that way until near the midway point of the second quarter.

Just as motorists taking a wrong turn off the New Jersey Turnpike can get lost when they come here, the Navy football team has had its own share of misadventures when playing at Rutgers. The last time the Midshipmen beat the Scarlet Knights on their home field was 1999, and there have been four subsequents defeats — by six, 21, 10 and 17 points. So how does a 2-3 team in the midst of its first three-game losing streak in nine years turn things around Saturday against a 4-1 Rutgers team on a three-game winning streak — at a place where historically the Midshipmen have had so little success?

In the lexicon of Navy football, they are called "loafs" — as in loafing. On defense, they come when linemen don't converge on a quarterback whose pocket has broken down; or when linebackers stop their pursuit of a running back about to break through for a big gain; or when a cornerback or safety thinks the other is going to bring down a receiver who just made a catch in the middle of the field. Making tackles on those types of plays has typically been at the root of Navy's success defensively in recent years.
