For the third time this season, Morgan State lost a game by less than a field goal. But unlike setbacks to Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30 and Holy Cross on Sept. 6, there was something different about Saturday's 15-14 loss to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State. The Bears had entered the contest on a two-game winning streak, and the Spartans wallowed their way through an 0-4 start. But Morgan State (2-3 overall and 1-1 in the league) couldn't prevent Norfolk State from scoring a game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds left in regulation.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Before tackling Michigan State yesterday, Utah's rotund coach Rick Majerus said jokingly: "I don't know how we're going to stop the Spartans. I'm going to have to eat on it."The Spartans almost gave Majerus an ulcer, forcing two overtimes with stirring comebacks before the Utes survived, 85-84, to advance to the semifinals of the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament West Regional."It's probably the best game I've been involved with in my life," Majerus said on a more serious note after the game.

Hello, old friend. That may as well be the greeting Salisbury has when York visits Sea Gull Stadium in Salisbury at noon Saturday in a NCAA tournament second-round game. The contest will be the third meeting this season between Capital Athletic Conference rivals. “There's good and bad,” Sea Gulls coach Jim Berkman said Thursday morning. “I guess you could say that we definitely know their tendencies. And they know ours, so that's probably not so good. It's tough to play anybody three times in any sport and especially in our game when the reality is, the game is meant to be played one time a year and two at the most.

ST. LOUIS -- In the end, after the ragged start, the angry speech and the remarkable turnaround, Antonio Smith wound up with the ball in his hands and the Midwest Region at his feet.Michigan State's 6-foot-8 senior followed the first impulse that hit him. He kicked the ball as hard as he could. "Almost to the ceiling," he said, in half astonishment. "I just let it hang out."Why not? The Spartans, everybody's underdog, had just beaten the odds one more time. They spotted the Kentucky Wildcats 13 points in yesterday's Midwest Regional final, then eliminated the defending NCAA champions with the blunt, efficient end of their ever-present defense.

- Jordan Williams raced off the court, slapping hands with fans behind Maryland's bench as he headed toward the Spokane Arena tunnel. Greivis Vasquez leaped up onto a chair and pumped his fist repeatedly at a cluster of red-clad Terrapins backers in the stands. Handwritten in red ink on one of Vasquez's white sneakers were the words "Win" and "Love the Game." The Terrapins were loving the game more than ever after overcoming early NCAA tournament jitters to beat Houston, 89-77, and advance to today's meeting with Michigan State for a spot in the Sweet Sixteen.

Michigan State star Kalin Lucas will miss the rest of the NCAA tournament after a magnetic resonance imaging confirmed that he ruptured his left Achilles tendon. In Lucas' place on Sunday, Korie Lucious made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to put the Spartans into the round of 16 with an 85-83 win over fourth-seeded Maryland. Lucas was hurt late in the first half of that game when he landed awkwardly after a shot. He is a two-time All-Big Ten player and leads the Spartans in points and assists.

ST. LOUIS -- Mateen Cleaves, who promised a Big Ten-type football game, delivered a show-stopping hit that helped turn Michigan State's Midwest Regional semifinal game against Oklahoma last night.When Cleaves ran fullback-like into an Eduardo Najero pick 10 minutes into the second half, the collision left both players sprawled on the court during a 10-minute delay. Najera fell face-down, out cold. Although he eventually returned, it was Oklahoma that never recovered."That ranks among the top hits I've had," Cleaves said after top-seeded Michigan State outlasted the 13th-seeded Sooners, 54-46, at the Trans World Dome.

AUSTIN, Texas - Dexter Pittman admits he needed to get mad. And Texas coach Rick Barnes knew how to push the proper buttons to accomplish that. Before the Longhorns faced North Carolina on Saturday, Barnes led Pittman into the gym for an early season message. Running and conducting drills for an hour and a half was a way to jolt Pittman out of his "mentally relaxed" mode, Pittman said. "Like an NBA predraft camp but harder," he said. Pittman grasped the message and delivered with 23 points and 15 rebounds in a 103-90 victory against the Tar Heels.

Laurel baseball may not have a great defense or be the best at driving in runs, but they certainly can count on having one of the best pitchers in Prince George's County. Junior Tyler Carmen struck out 15 Frederick Douglass batters in six innings and didn't allow a hit until the fifth in the second game of a doubleheader on May 5. He has amassed 110 strikeouts in 47 1/3 innings pitched for the Spartans (8-8), who lost the first game of the doubleheader 6-3 and won the second 3-0. Laurel's second-year coach Donald Cleveland wasn't surprised by Carmen's performance, considering he had 18 strikeouts in seven innings in a 2-0 win against Friendly earlier in the season.

When Salisbury hosts York in Capital Athletic Conference tournament final Saturday at 2 p.m. at Sea Gull Stadium, it will be the first time the league foes have met since March 22, when the Sea Gulls won, 11-8. Salisbury coach Jim Berkman has had his eye on the Spartans ever since. “I've seen every game they've played since they played us,” he said Thursday afternoon. “So whatever they've changed, I've seen. We know who their guys are, and we know who we've got to stop, and we know who we've got to match up with, and we know what their tendencies are, and we've got to limit those tendencies.

The Morgan State men's basketball team's bid for a 3-0 start in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference will unfold Saturday, but it won't be easy. Norfolk State, which will host the Bears (4-10 overall and 2-0 in the league), is 10-7 overall, but sits atop the conference with a perfect 4-0 record. Saturday's contest pits two of the MEAC's four undefeated teams (Hampton and Savannah State at 3-0 each are the other two) against each other, but Morgan State coach Todd Bozeman said every league game is crucial.

Buddy Green, the defensive coordinator for Navy's football team, has a steadfast policy of refraining from publicly assessing any unit of the defense until season's end. "Ask me on Dec. 31," he said when approached about the development of the pass defense. Junior free safety Parrish Gaines, however, does not share his coach's reservations. "We're getting better week by week," said Gaines, who shifted from cornerback in the team's victory over Pittsburgh on Oct. 26. "We still have guys in new positions.

WASHINGTON - In today's BB&T Classic championship game, Maryland will play an opponent that is aggressive, balanced and hungry. That was supposed to be Michigan State, but the 11th-ranked Spartans were pummeled by George Washington in yesterday's second semifinal, 96-83. The Colonials (4-1) took control with a 10-0 run late in the first half and led by as many as 15 early in the second half. Fourth-year coach Karl Hobbs' rising team went inside for 23 points from junior center Pops Mensah-Bonsu, while senior guard T.J. Thompson got half of his 18 points on three-pointers.

INDIANAPOLIS - Some things just don't happen. Wile E. Coyote doesn't catch the Road Runner. Martha Stewart doesn't leave crumbs on the tablecloth, and the Tennessee women's basketball team doesn't lose in the Final Four to a team of neophytes. But the Lady Vols squandered a 16-point, second-half lead and a six-point advantage in the final three minutes against Michigan State in the national semifinals last night, as the Spartans won, 68-64, to claim one of the most shocking upsets in women's basketball history.

In the not-too-distant future, Navy will meet archrival Army in the latest installment of arguably college football's greatest rivalry at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field on Dec. 14. But before the Midshipmen (6-4) can begin focusing on preparing for their most contentious foe, they still have the matter of a nationally televised game Friday night at San Jose State (5-5). The two sides have met just twice, but the Spartans won both meetings, in 2011 and 2012. And they need just one more victory to become bowl-eligible.

Morgan State's defense was solid against the run last season, a middle-of-the-road unit that finished 78th nationally after allowing an average of 177.7 yards in 2012. This year's unit, however, has strayed from that path. The Bears are surrendering 303.0 rushing yards per game this fall, which ranks 115th among 122 teams in the Football Championship Subdivision. Sixteen of their opponents' 20 touchdowns have been running scores. “We continue to look at it - from scheme to personnel,” coach Donald Hill-Eley said Tuesday during a conference call.
