SALT LAKE CITY - The Mid-American Conference has been a giant-killer in the NCAA tournament for several years, and Central Michigan didn't disappoint last night in the opening round of the West Regional at the Huntsman Center. While the 11th-seeded Chippewas didn't knock off one of college basketball's big-name teams, they did provide the first big upset in this year's tournament with a wild 79-73 victory over sixth-seeded Creighton. Led by senior forward Mike Manciel, who scored 15 of his career-high 29 points in the first half, Central Michigan (25-6)

Ask a rabid college football fan to name the six Division 1-A schools that have compiled the best records over the past two seasons, and traditional powers Alabama (24-1), Miami (23-1), Florida State (22-3), Texas A&M (22-3) and Washington (21-3) come to mind. But Bowling Green, Ohio, (21-3)?Yes, the Falcons (1-1) -- who visit the Naval Academy today -- are bent on repeating their dramatic 22-19 victory in Annapolis in 1991 and strengthening their reputation as one of the best little-known football programs in the country.

Sun staff writer Don Markus continues the March Madness Tour that will take him to eight conference tournaments in eight days. TOLEDO, Ohio -- The Mid-American Conference usually saves its best games and most compelling story lines for the NCAA tournament. Who can forget Ball State's run to the Sweet 16 in 1990 with a then relatively unknown coach named Rick Majerus? Or Eastern Michigan nearly making the Elite Eight the next year before succumbing to North Carolina?It is the best conference few ever notice between November and February, the rivalries just as heated as the ones that exist in the Big Ten or ACC. It is a league that can boast three players chosen among the NBA's best 50 all-time, a league that might have as many as five players drafted later this year.
