AUSTIN, Texas -- Stop Johnny Hemsley. That order was high on Tulsa's checklist heading into last night's NCAA tournament South Regional semifinal against Miami. Hemsley, the senior guard out of Baltimore's Southern High, had shot the Hurricanes to one of their best seasons ever, and Tulsa coach Bill Self was determined to make someone else beat him. Seventh-seeded Tulsa limited Hemsley's touches and moved into its first regional final with an 80-71 victory over Miami at the Erwin Center.

COLLEGE  PARK -- Starting with a season-opening one-point defeat to Connecticut, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon kept saying how much a difference Seth Allen would have made. Allen's return to the lineup Sunday night after sitting out two months with a broken foot showed just how much the struggling Terps missed their sophomore point guard. Allen, who began practicing Friday after being cleared by doctors, came off the bench to lead the Terps to a much-needed 85-74 victory over Tulsa before an announced 10,251 at Comcast Center.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tulsa's credentials included 29 victories this season, two Sweet 16 appearances and NCAA tournament showings in six of the past seven years. Yet, the Golden Hurricane played in only one nationally televised game this season and entered the NCAA tournament as a No. 7 seed -- factors that had led its players and coach to wonder about the lack of attention. Coach Bill Self said his team has been overlooked in part because it hadn't beaten a top-ranked program, but that changed with yesterday's 69-61 win over No. 2 seed Cincinnati in the second round of the NCAA tournament's South Regional.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Could a regional final provide a greater contrast than the one the NCAA tournament offers in the South today? Tulsa and North Carolina could not be more different in style, size, coaches and the attention their programs receive. The Golden Hurricane is proud of the tradition it has grown in the heartland, but should the Tar Heels succeed at the Erwin Center, they would break a tie with UCLA and earn a record 15th visit to the Final Four. "The other team expects to beat us," Brendan Haywood said.

After a 2003 season in which their teams made the two most positive turnarounds in NCAA Division I-A football, Tulsa coach Steve Kragthorpe and Navy's Paul Johnson made the banquet circuit as fellow nominees for coach of the year awards. Nick Saban of Louisiana State swept most of the honors, but Kragthorpe and Johnson had a good time discussing the meeting of their teams that will occur tonight at Skelly Stadium in Tulsa. "Neither of us was in our position when this game was scheduled," Kragthrope recalled.

ST. LOUIS -- Tayshaun Prince has often tried to be the voice of reason in Kentucky's stormy season. But until the NCAA tournament began for the Wildcats Thursday, Prince's words often went unheeded. The younger Wildcats mostly went their own way, usually in the wrong direction. Last night at the Edward Jones Dome, Prince provided the map for fourth-seeded Kentucky in its second-round East Regional struggle against 12th-seeded Tulsa. Locked in a tight battle with the upstart Golden Hurricane, the Wildcats followed their shooting Prince all the way to the Sweet 16. In a performance that will go down in the lore of the storied Kentucky program, the scrawny 6-foot-9 senior forward scored a career-high 41 points to lead the Wildcats to an 87-82 victory.

ST. LOUIS - In a bracket filled with big-time programs with big-name players and coaches, it was easy for Tulsa to be overlooked. Quietly consistent in the NCAA men's basketball tournament over the past eight years, with two Sweet 16 appearances and a trip to the Elite Eight in 2000, the Golden Hurricane came here with a decidedly low profile. That could change this weekend at the Edward Jones Dome. After watching a 14-point second-half lead disappear to fifth-seeded Marquette, 12th-seeded Tulsa won the first down-to-the-wire game of this year's tournament.

As players and then assistant coaches, Dave Dickerson and Doug Wojcik each spent 13 seasons at Maryland and the Naval Academy, respectively. Dickerson was on the Terps' staff when the team won the 2002 NCAA title, while Wojcik recruited the core that won for North Carolina in 2005. Both are in the second season of their first head coaching jobs, in a league loaded with recognizable veterans, but they view a certain force of nature from different perspectives. At Tulsa, Wojcik sells the Golden Hurricane's rich tradition.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Weber State memorabilia became a peculiarly hot item on Tobacco Road in the past year. It was a way for the ABC crowd -- Anybody But Carolina -- to taunt the Tar Heels about their embarrassing exit from the first round of the 1999 NCAA tournament. North Carolina will get its revenge with brag shirts from the RCA Dome. The Tar Heels are headed to Indianapolis, for a record 15th Final Four. Stern defense and freshman Joe Forte's 28 points lifted them past Tulsa, 59-55, in the South Regional final at the Erwin Center yesterday, as eighth-seeded North Carolina picked a grand moment to put together its first four-game win streak of the season.

DALLAS -- Ask Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson about his passion for his job, and he'll tell you about how, after growing up poor in El Paso, Texas, the game of basketball became his "key to open doors.""Of course now with that key I've been able to move in and become a basketball coach," Richardson said yesterday. "Hopefully, in some fashion, that will be able to open some doors for others to follow me."Nearly three years ago, Richardson left a door open when, after five years at Arkansas, he considered returning to the University of Tulsa, where he had achieved a tremendous amount of success in his first major-college coaching job.Richardson eventually said no, and Orlando "Tubby" Smith -- at the time seeking his first job as a head coach -- said yes. And tonight the two will attempt to shut the door on one another's season when top-seeded Arkansas (27-3)

AUSTIN, Texas -- Bill Self is coming soon to a major conference program near you -- or at least one with a national television contract. Self is the coach at Tulsa, which wins basketball games and loses coaches. The Oklahoma college with an enrollment of 4,300 has served as a springboard for Nolan Richardson, Tubby Smith and Steve Robinson, and Self gets nearly as many questions about his future as he does the Golden Hurricane (31-4). "I think I've got a great job," Self said. "I remember John Calipari telling me, `If you like your president, and you like your AD, make the next job the one you're presently at. As far as whatever you need to be successful, try to get it where you are.' These people [at Tulsa]
