Northwest Missouri State running back LaRon Council says he'll never forget the feeling of losing a national championship game. Now, he has something to take the place of that bad memory. Council rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns to lead Northwest Missouri to the NCAA Division II championship with a 30-23 win over Grand Valley State (13-2) on Saturday in Florence, Ala. The Bearcats (14-1) won their first title since 1998 and ended a string of four consecutive losses in the national title game.

COLLEGE PARK-- --Something stunk about the Maryland basketball team this season. It went beyond its 19-13 final record, its exclusion from the NCAA tournament, and the 87-84 loss it mailed in against Manhattan yesterday. Sometimes disappointing seasons just happen, and Maryland has had two in a row now, both ending in the NIT. But from what the coach and the players were saying after their quick and lifeless demise in their first game of this NIT, this one didn't just happen. Inside Terps' season ends with first-round NIT exit.

Only the bravest will attempt to swing a golf club. Unless you're desperate enough to watch the Pro Bowl, football is finally, blessedly, over. That means it's an ideal weekend to get a primer on players and teams that could put the Madness in March. Saturday's viewing options are plenty, starting with No. 11 Marquette at No. 22 Georgetown, noon on ESPN. At halftime, turn the remote to CBS, where No. 2 UCLA and West Virginia tip off at 1 p.m. in Morgantown. At 3:30, ABC has No. 9 Kansas at Missouri.

COLLEGE PARK -- Fourteen months ago, the Maryland women's basketball team stood at the summit of their sport -- No. 1 in the Associated Press poll.Last night, any thought they had of leaving a mark on the rich history of their program ended with a crashing thud, and they were beaten by Southwest Missouri State, 86-82, before 3,007 at Cole Field House in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.When the final horn sounded, the season and a two-year span concluded with no Atlantic Coast Conference championships, no regional championships and precious little to show for their efforts, except painful memories.

Southwest Missouri State's lineup: The Lady Bears' attack begins and ends with Jackie Stiles, the NCAA's all-time leading scorer, averaging a career-best 30.6 points a game. She is perhaps the most electrifying player in the women's college game since Sheryl Swoopes carried Texas Tech to the 1993 title.

Who knew that all those years that Leon Barmore was guiding the Louisiana Tech women's basketball team to Final Four appearances and national championships that he was leading a mid-major? Barmore, a 2003 inductee to the Basketball Hall of Fame, always figured the Lady Techsters, who won two NCAA championships, made five title-game appearances and went to nine Final Fours during his 20-year tenure, were just as major as the Texas, Tennessee and LSU teams they were playing and beating. "I don't even know where these words originate, mid-major and major and all that," said Barmore, who retired in 2002 with an .869 winning percentage.

The Ravens will trim their roster to 53 by tomorrow, and the final preseason game provided a mixed bag for players on the bubble. Dwayne Missouri, a 22-year-old defensive end, set up Kelly Gregg's 19-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, as the seventh-round draft choice from Northwestern came in from the blind side and stripped New York Giants third-string quarterback Jesse Palmer. "Based on the lineman's stance, I felt they were going to pass the ball, and I got a good jump," said Missouri, who also sacked Palmer in the third quarter, forcing a fumble that the Giants recovered.

Louisiana Tech coach Leon Barmore saw it clearly. Connecticut had just dismantled his team to win the East Regional final on Monday, scoring within six seconds of the opening tip and never relenting on the perimeter, under the basket, or in transition. "It's pretty obvious to me," Barmore said, "that if they handle their business, they are going to be national champions." Business is booming for the Huskies as UConn's never-ending supply of talent meets the demand of high expectations.

They were stacked off to the side of the equipment room after Coppin State was eliminated in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament. Neatly folded and boxed, they were packed away until -- presumably -- the start of the 1991-92 basketball season.But those Coppin uniforms were given new life yesterday, one day after the Eagles were offered a berth in the National Invitation Tournament. And for four seniors whose careers were thought to have ended on the floor of The Scope in Norfolk, Va., after a loss to Florida A&M 11 days ago, there is one more chance at redemption.
