Dallas -- Rick Barnes can look down his bench for a chief reason his Texas Longhorns are back in the Sweet 16. Backup guard A.J. Abrams came off Barnes' bench to score 16 points yesterday, including a four-point play and a trio of three-point shots, and reserve post player Mike Williams provided 22 minutes of shut-down defense as Texas swarmed North Carolina State, 75-54, at American Airlines Center. "Coach told me I needed to stop passing up open shots, so I got more of them and just knocked them down," said Abrams, who could become a bigger factor for Texas now that guard Kenton Paulino reinjured an already sore left knee yesterday.

No team has been able to cling to No. 1 very long this season. But no team has fallen harder since being ranked at the top than Texas. The No. 9 Longhorns entered Monday's game against Oklahoma State having dropped three of their last four after starting the season 17-0. Thud. Or maybe it's more of a whiff. The Longhorns might be modeling themselves after the NCAA runner-up Memphis team from two seasons ago that never could make a free throw. Texas owns the top scoring offense in the Big 12, averaging 85.3 points, is the top rebounding team with 44.3 per game and has the third-best shooting defense, holding opponents to 38.5 percent shooting.

Domestic Disturbance is strictly movie-of-the-week stuff. And not very good stuff, at that. This is a relentlessly ordinary thriller in which a boy who's cried "wolf" too often tries to convince his father that his seemingly virtuous stepdad is a murderer. The film features a walk-through performance from John Travolta, a menacing turn by Vince Vaughn (what's else is new?), a weasely turn by Steve Buscemi (ditto) and no twists we don't see from a mile away. The end result isn't bad, but it's nothing to brag about.
