The Connecticut women have focused intently, dominated historically and won just about every minute of each of their 38 games. And here they are again. "What's gone into coming back [to tonight's national championship] has been so incredible and so amazing," Geno Auriemma said. The Huskies have created their own system of measure by which all teams that follow will now be compared. "We force ourselves every day to do things that are against human nature," Maya Moore said.

LOS ANGELES - While Toby Gerhart rampaged through the Southern California defense in a quiet Coliseum, the star tailback and his teammates also flattened a bunch of recent college football certainties. USC's streaks of seven straight BCS bowls, 11-win seasons and top-four AP poll finishes? All finished. The Trojans' Pac-10 dominance the last seven years? It's all but over too after Gerhart ran for 178 yards and three touchdowns in Stanford's 55-21 victory, the most points allowed in USC history.

K.C. Rivers scored 28 points and No. 25 Clemson easily overcame an early 12-point deficit on the way to beating host Miami, 91-72, last night in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for both teams. Terrence Oglesby added 17 points for the Tigers (12-0, 1-0), who kept pace with No. 3 Pittsburgh for Division I's best record this season. Pitt stayed perfect by beating Florida State earlier yesterday. Jack McClinton (Calvert Hall) scored 20 points for Miami (7-3, 0-1), which doomed itself with a season-high 22 turnovers - 12 in the final 11 minutes of the first half, a stretch during which the Hurricanes were outscored 29-9 - and by missing 12 of its first 17 free throws.

Kyle Singler hit two free throws with 19.4 seconds left to help No. 8 Duke rally past visiting Rhode Island, 82-79, yesterday. Jon Scheyer scored 23 points, and Singler finished with 21 points for the Blue Devils (3-0), who fell behind by 12 early and trailed for most of the way. Singler twice hit a pair of foul shots in the final minute to put the Blue Devils up by one, before Rhode Island (1-1) called time out with 10.6 seconds left and worked the ball to Jimmy Baron. With Singler in his face, his fallaway jumper glanced off the rim, clipped a Rams player and went out of bounds with 4.9 seconds on the clock.
