EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The day before playing Tulsa in the East Regional semifinals, Massachusetts coach John Calipari said he was "scared to death" of the Golden Hurricane. He cited its huge front line, its hot backcourt of Shea Seals and Alvin Williamson, and the coaching of Tubby Smith, who guided the school from the unheralded Missouri Valley Conference into its second straight Sweet 16 appearance.But last night at the Meadowlands Arena, it was the Minutemen who put on a frightening performance, as UMass charged into its first Final Eight appearance with a dominating 76-51 victory before a sellout crowd.

After his team beat Tulsa at Comcast Center on Sunday night, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon scratched a message on the whiteboard in the locker room. “1-0,” it read. Turgeon had given a similar message verbally to his players after the Terps had lost to Boston University at home eight days before, but he didn't think it got through. “When I left the locker room after the BU game, I said, 'This is over, we're starting new when we come back,” Turgeon recalled Monday during a teleconference with reporters.

In a 1947 Jimmy Stewart movie, "Magic Town," pollsters discovered that a Midwest town was exactly average. In the resulting bonanza, hucksters tested their wares, politicians sought to butter up the common man, and townspeople peddled opinions and interviews, commanding top dollar for their marketable mediocrity. Of course, it was no longer an average town and the bubble collapsed.Tulsa, Okla., is today's "Magic Town." Donnelley Marketing Information Services, working from 1990 census data, says the erstwhile "oil capital of the world" -- population 337,000 and no longer dependent on oil rigs and cows -- is the city that most mirrors the national average for age distribution, racial mix and housing prices.

As I waited for Maryland guard  Seth Allen to return from a broken bone in his left foot suffered during the preseason,  I thought about last season's Duke game at Comcast Center. It wasn't just that the then-freshman  had hit the game-winning free throws against the Blue Devils with 2.8 seconds left. It was that he scored all of his 16 points in the second half. Allen - whose absence coincided with  some trying times for his teammates - is a charismatic athlete who can score in bursts.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- It was a fast-moving game of chess. Tulsa coach Tubby Smith kept moving his pieces to hide the fact that his team had no answer for Oklahoma State center Bryant Reeves.Checkmate, Smith.Trailing by 11 points at halftime, 12th-seeded Tulsa changed its offensive and defensive tactics yesterday to rally for a scintillating, 82-80 second-round victory over the fourth-seeded Cowboys (24-10) in the NCAA tournament.

"We have all been affected by the black experience in America," Scott Ellsworth told the group of students in the McDonogh School chapel. The man making the pronouncement Monday afternoon was middle-aged -- he'll turn 47 in March -- with a head that seemed to have brusquely pushed all the hair toward the back, save for the wisps of gray at the temple and the remaining slab of black running around the sides. He also was white, talking to a group of predominantly white students at a school that didn't allow its first black student until 1959.

F Corliss Williamson scored 27 points in the Razorbacks' 93-91 overtime victory over Tulsa in December. For Tulsa, the key will be to free up G Shea Seals and F Gary Collier from beyond the three-point line. Arkansas was vulnerable to Kentucky in the SEC tournament, allowing 16 three-pointers in a 90-78 loss. Arkansas' depth will play a role.

Despite all of the breakdowns it endured, whether they were self-inflicted or caused by Tulsa or questionable officiating, Navy still had a chance to maintain its recent home-field advantage yesterday and remain undefeated. But the Midshipmen, playing in the first overtime game in school history, could not execute one of the game's basic plays, and it cost them.

COLLEGE PARK - A Maryland basketball team that has lost two non-conference games at home for the first time in 25 years will receive a belated Christmas present when it plays Tulsa on Sunday night - sophomore point guard Seth Allen. Terps coach Mark Turgeon said after practice Saturday that Allen has been cleared by doctors to begin playing. On Sunday, Turgeon said Allen would come off the bench and play against Tulsa. Allen, who was expected to start at point guard before breaking his left foot in preseason workouts, began practicing with the team Friday.

COLLEGE  PARK -- Starting with a season-opening one-point defeat to Connecticut, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon kept saying how much a difference Seth Allen would have made. Allen's return to the lineup Sunday night after sitting out two months with a broken foot showed just how much the struggling Terps missed their sophomore point guard. Allen, who began practicing Friday after being cleared by doctors, came off the bench to lead the Terps to a much-needed 85-74 victory over Tulsa before an announced 10,251 at Comcast Center.

COLLEGE PARK - As different as the gym rat and blue-chip star seemed on the surface, Mark Turgeon and Danny Manning had a lot in common when they became teammates and best friends playing for Larry Brown at Kansas in the 1980s. "They've got the same values, they were great teammates, they were really cerebral, both grew up with families that were involved in the game," Brown recalled in a telephone interview Saturday. "The biggest difference is that one guy is 5-[foot-]10 and the other guy is 6-10.

Larry Bruno , a former Geneva (Pa.) College football star who turned down a chance to play for the Steelers and later coached Joe Namath in high school, has died. He was 88. The Steelers drafted Bruno, a running back, in the 13th round in 1947, but he chose to go into coaching. His career at Monaca (1949-58) and Beaver Falls (1959-78) high schools was highlighted by a Namath-led Beaver Falls team that went 10-0 in 1960 and won a western Pennsylvania championship. There were no statewide playoffs.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Stop Johnny Hemsley. That order was high on Tulsa's checklist heading into last night's NCAA tournament South Regional semifinal against Miami. Hemsley, the senior guard out of Baltimore's Southern High, had shot the Hurricanes to one of their best seasons ever, and Tulsa coach Bill Self was determined to make someone else beat him. Seventh-seeded Tulsa limited Hemsley's touches and moved into its first regional final with an 80-71 victory over Miami at the Erwin Center.

ST. LOUIS - In a bracket filled with big-time programs with big-name players and coaches, it was easy for Tulsa to be overlooked. Quietly consistent in the NCAA men's basketball tournament over the past eight years, with two Sweet 16 appearances and a trip to the Elite Eight in 2000, the Golden Hurricane came here with a decidedly low profile. That could change this weekend at the Edward Jones Dome. After watching a 14-point second-half lead disappear to fifth-seeded Marquette, 12th-seeded Tulsa won the first down-to-the-wire game of this year's tournament.
