ORLANDO, Fla. -- Sixth-ranked Seton Hall can only hope that the road to New Orleans is littered with teams like Tennessee State. If so, the Final Four will be a formality.The second seed Pirates waited through a couple of tightly contested games in the first round of the Southeast Regional at the Orlando Arena, but the feature game was no contest. Seton Hall crushed the lightly-regarded Tigers, 81-59, to move into a second-round matchup against 20th-ranked Western Kentucky tomorrow.The seventh seed Hilltoppers earned their place in the round of 32 with a 55-52 victory over Memphis State.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Kentucky's seemingly bottomless bench claimed another victim yesterday in the NCAA Southeast Regional, as Tulane wilted under the relentless pressure, 82-60, at the Pyramid.The victory advanced the second-ranked and top-seeded Wildcats into this week's regional semifinals against Arizona State in Birmingham, Ala.Kentucky (27-4) sealed the decision with one of its patented runs, an 18-0 streak in the first half after the Green Wave had weathered the initial storm to stay within 19-16.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- At high noon yesterday, some forlorn figure from Topeka, Kan., stood outside the 9th Avenue entrance to the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center, trying to hawk a handful of devalued tickets to the Southeast Regional championship.Today's Arizona-Providence match is not exactly what everyone had in mind when the draw for the Southeast Regional was unveiled. Instead of a peek at one more step in the coronation of No. 1 Kansas, it's a buyer's market for a game that, at least on paper, is the lamest regional final in 18 years.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It looks almost invincible, this top-seeded Kentucky team that ramrodded Wake Forest out of the NCAA tournament.Jamal Mashburn, who played very much like an NBA No. 1 lottery pick in Thursday's 103-69 victory over the Demon Deacons, said he noticed defeat in his opponent's eyes almost immediately."

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Maybe now North Carolina's bench will come out of the shadows.Pressed into service in last night's Southeast Regional final, the Tar Heels' reserves came through in a big way in the 74-61 win over Kentucky.Serge Zwikker, a 7-foot-2 sophomore, gave Carolina five points and four rebounds filling in for foul-plagued Rasheed Wallace. Freshman guard Shammond Williams gave Carolina some valuable minutes at guard when Donald Williams turned his ankle. And Pearce Landry filled in capably for Dante Calabria when Calabria twisted his right knee in the first half.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tulane coach Perry Clark had it all figured out. Stop the Florida State running game and shut the 11th-ranked Seminoles down at the three-point line and the Green Wave just might get past the second round of the NCAA Tournament.In theory, it sounded great. In reality, it couldn't be done. The Seminoles shot from anywhere they wanted and ran away with an easy 94-63 victory yesterday in the Southeast Regional at the Orlando Arena.Former Dunbar High star Sam Cassell went 7-for-7 from the three-point line and scored a game-high 31 points as Florida State broke away late in the first half and blew away the Green Wave in the early minutes of the second.

ATLANTA -- Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson talks about his players giving their opponents "40 minutes of pure hell," with their tenacious press and depth.But yesterday, the second-ranked Razorbacks got a little taste of hell themselves from a bunch of Devils.After running off eight points in the first 45 seconds of their NCAA Southeast Regional second-round game against the Arizona State Sun Devils, the Razorbacks watched Arizona State run right back at them, threatening to upset the regional's top-seeded team.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- It was a scene that no one seriously expected to see at the Orlando Arena yesterday, but there they were -- the red-clad Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky swaying at midcourt to the tune of "My Old Kentucky Home" while the second-seeded Seton Hall Pirates walked off the court in stunned silence.There already had been one big upset in the NCAA tournament. Arizona was eliminated from the West Southeast RegionalRegional by unheralded Santa Clara on Thursday night. Now, there was another, and Western Kentucky's 72-68 victory in the second round of the Southeast Regional was almost as shocking.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The train stopped running for Chattanooga last night.Coach Mack McCarthy and his Mocs from the Southern Conference had their heartwarming stay in the Southeast Regional end in a 71-65 semifinal loss to Providence, which itself didn't exactly head into the NCAA tournament with great expectations.When it meets Arizona in tomorrow's regional final at the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center, 10th-seeded Providence (24-11) will attempt to become the lowest seed to reach the Final Four since 1986, when Louisiana State got there as a No. 11.The Providence-Chattanooga game was the first meeting in tournament history between a No. 10 seed and a No. 14, as the Mocs were only the second No. 14 to get this far.Before last week, the Friars, the lone Big East school in the Sweet 16, had gone 10 years between wins in the NCAA tournament, but they've been impressive in wins over Marquette, Duke and Chattanooga.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- This one was all about the "R" word. Respect.Or lack thereof for a school from a smaller conference that was considered an appendage of the University of Tennessee.The team wants to be known as simply Chattanooga, not Tennessee-Chattanooga, with the nickname Mocs, referring to the mockingbird, the state bird. No more Moccasins. And no more Chief Mocanooga on the logo.After yesterday's outing in the NCAA Southeast Regional, their identity problem has been eased.The 14th-seeded Mocs thought Illinois was taking a little too much for granted during a pre-game celebration and vented their anger on the court with a 75-63 victory that propelled them into the Sweet 16 for the first time.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- John Kresse said it was one of the saddest days of his coaching career. For Lute Olson, it sounded like one of the maddest.After his Arizona team ended the College of Charleston's fairy tale trip to the NCAA tournament last night with a gut-wrenching 73-69 win at The Pyramid, Olson ripped into the critics who have ripped into his program for previous postseason deficiencies.Between 1992 and 1995, the Wildcats suffered humiliating first-round losses to teams that were seeded Nos. 12, 14 and 15. When he was asked about escaping another upset loss to a No. 12, albeit in the second round of the Southeast Region, Olson lost his Scandinavian cool.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Catch-up basketball is usually unproductive basketball, and Georgia had too much of it to play yesterday.As a result, the Bulldogs became the fifth third-seeded team to succumb to a No. 14 seed when their comeback efforts fell short in a 73-70 defeat to Tennessee-Chattanooga in the first round of the NCAA Southeast Regional at the Charlotte Coliseum."

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- "Citizen Pain" put a hurting on Rhode Island.Brian Cardinal, a redshirt freshman forward for Purdue, became a cult hero in West Lafayette, Ind., this winter. The local newspaper conducted a contest to come up with a nickname for the knee-padded, floor-burned banger and "Citizen Pain" won out over "Rawhide" and "The Janitor."He's Kurt Rambis without the glasses, but the 6-foot-8 Cardinal produced on the perimeter when it counted yesterday at The Pyramid. His three-pointer with 16.7 seconds left in regulation forced overtime, which the Boilermakers dominated for an 83-76 win over Rhode Island.

You would have thought Dontae' Jones was auditioning for a spot with Jay Leno last week in the Southeast Regional, the way he dropped one-liners.A symbol of Mississippi State's stunning rise from the backwater town of Starkville, Miss., to the bright lights of the Final Four, Jones poked fun at nearly everyone, even himself.Describing some 5: 30 a.m. workouts he was forced to endure when he missed class earlier in the year, Jones spoke of strength coach Richard Akins' passion for pain. The players' pain, it turned out."
