TUCSON, Ariz. - There were hugs and tears and sloppy kisses on the Texas Tech sideline. Bob Knight, whose more famous emotional outbursts have involved slapping players, throwing chairs and bellying up to referees, wrapped his senior point guard Ronald Ross in a full-body embrace, then sent his son, Patrick, into the stands to bring his wife, Karen, onto the floor. Texas Tech, seeded sixth in the Albuquerque Regional, had just moved into the NCAA tournament Sweet 16 after upsetting No. 3 seed Gonzaga, 71-69, yesterday at the McKale Center.

The lasting impression of Mike Leach left after his 10 seasons at Texas Tech is not only of the Red Raiders scoring touchdowns as if they were in a video game. It is also the controversy that surrounded Leach as he was being fired last December, on the eve of his team's 10th straight bowl game. Now, Leach is a serious candidate to become Ralph Friedgen's successor at Maryland. If he does emerge from his exile in Key West, Fla. another image may come into focus: that of a straight-shooting, point-producing perfectionist who could create an excitement in College Park that not even a 9-4 season could rekindle.

HAMILTON, N.Y. -- There were different expectations. And it was a different game, too.But in the end, with a possible NCAA Division I-AA playoff berth at stake, it was the same old story when the Towson football team visited Colgate yesterday and left with a 38-14 loss at Andy Kerr Stadium. It was the fourth blowout loss to the Red Raiders in four meetings between the teams.While playing itself within one win of a Patriot League co-championship this season, Towson, which finished its season at 7-4, 4-2, had proved a worthy peer of the six other members.

Wednesday's Military Bowl against East Carolina is not only the last game of Ralph Friedgen's 10-year career. It could be something else for the Terps and their fans — a preview of what they can expect if former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach takes over. Though Leach is officially nothing more than a candidate for now — the only candidate first-year athletic director Kevin Anderson mentioned by name last week in announcing that Friedgen won't be back next season — a semblance of Leach's famous Air Raid offense will be on display at RFK Stadium.

The Houston Bowl was guaranteed a classic run vs. pass matchup yesterday when Texas Tech accepted an invitation to play Navy on Dec. 30 at Reliant Stadium. In an intriguing pairing, the Midshipmen will match their old-school, No. 1-ranked rushing attack against Texas Tech's new-wave, No. 1-ranked passing game triggered by quarterback B.J. Symons. "It will be a tremendous challenge to play Texas Tech," said Navy coach Paul Johnson, the day after his team methodically romped past rival Army, 34-6, to finish the regular season at 8-4. "They traditionally have one of the best offenses in the country, and they have a ton of great athletes."

Navy's basketball team received mention in the national poll for the first time this season yesterday, then the team proceeded to justify that mentioning. Without missing a beat from its recent trend, the Midshipmen smothered Colgate from the onset last night at Alumni Hall, earning a convincing, 81-47 Patriot League victory before 1,758 fans. It was the fourth straight game in which Navy has romped to at least a 20-point lead as the race for first place in the league's regular season heads into the homestretch.

All the top teams took care of their business and the Bowl Championship Series standings were unchanged at the top yesterday, with Alabama and Texas Tech holding the top two spots and Florida, Texas and Oklahoma poised to move up. The Crimson Tide ran away from Mississippi State in the second half of a 32-7 victory that kept Alabama on top of both the USA Today coaches' poll and the Harris poll. Alabama has a .9787 BCS average. Texas Tech (.9698) remained second in the polls and first according to the computer ratings during a week off. The Red Raiders head into their fourth straight game against a ranked opponent, this time at Oklahoma, in control of their national title and Big 12 championship hopes.

No scoreboard-watching necessary for Texas Tech. Less than 24 hours after the Red Raiders gave the national championship race a makeover by defeating then-No. 1 Texas, they received more good news when the Bowl Championship Series standings were released yesterday. Texas Tech was in second place, behind Alabama and just ahead of third-place Penn State. And Maryland, which had last weekend off, unexpectedly jumped into the standings at No. 23. If the undefeated Red Raiders of the Big 12 and undefeated Crimson Tide of the Southeastern Conference win out, they will likely meet in the BCS national championship game Jan. 8 in Miami.

RICHMOND, Va. - A backboard wasn't all that came crashing down around North Carolina yesterday.The shattered glass that lay on the Richmond Coliseum floor, courtesy of a follow-up dunk by Texas Tech's Darvin Ham, served as a symbol for the No. 6-seeded Tar Heels, who were taken apart by the third-seeded Red Raiders in a 92-73 loss in the East Regional.Ham's slam, with 12: 06 left in the first half, tied the score at 16. It also sent pieces of glass all the way to the other free-throw line, and sent both teams into their locker rooms during a 26-minute delay.

Texas Tech fired Mike Leach on Wednesday after the coach took the school to court to try to overturn his suspension for alleged mistreatment of an injured player. "I'm very sad to say there's only one person to blame for this and it's Mike Leach," Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance told The Associated Press. Jerry Turner , vice chairman of the university system's Board of Regents, said "other things" came to light during an investigation of Leach's treatment of receiver Adam James . The sophomore alleged the coach twice confined him to a small, dark place after the player was diagnosed with a concussion.

Pat Knight seems to have coached himself out of an identity crisis. Knight acknowledged he had a difficult time adjusting in his first full season at Texas Tech last year. Players said he may have tried to please too many people - his bosses, fans, his team. Maybe even his famous father, Bob Knight . Pat Knight, who took over after nine years as an assistant to his dad at Texas Tech and Indiana, said he was unsure how to act at first. Should he be subdued, the antithesis of his father?

HAMILTON, N.Y. -- The Navy men's basketball team entered this snowy town on a six-game winning streak and tied for the Patriot League lead. No. 7 would have clinched the Patriot League regular-season title and home-court advantage in the conference tournament. But yesterday's 73-62 loss to Colgate - coupled with American's victory over Lafayette - means the Midshipmen (16-13, 9-5) will enter the tournament as the No. 2 seed. "I felt we played a great game," Navy coach Billy Lange said.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- All Kliff Kingsbury ever wanted to do was go out a winner. And did he ever. The Texas Tech senior capped his prolific career yesterday by leading the Red Raiders to a stunning 55-15 victory over Clemson in the Tangerine Bowl. He then signed autographs for fans -- and teammates, too -- and capped the night by directing the Tech band through "March Grandioso" in the south end zone of Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium. "This has been a dream come true," said Kingsbury, who completed 74.4 percent of his passes for 375 yards and three touchdowns.

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Bob Knight cared about breaking the NCAA wins record enough to select the song that celebrated the accomplishment. Frank Sinatra's "My Way" played over the loudspeaker as red and black confetti fell to the floor and the United Spirit Arena crowd roared, reveling in the 880th win of Knight's career. The final step past North Carolina's Dean Smith didn't come easy. Texas Tech blew a 20-point lead before coming back for a 70-68 win yesterday over New Mexico. Knight, perhaps the most polarizing coach in college basketball history, became the winningest one in men's Division I play when New Mexico guard J.R. Giddens' 40-footer bounced off the back rim at the buzzer.
