Visiting Northern Kentucky used an 11-0 run midway through the second half and made five of seven free throws in the final three minutes to beat host Navy, 55-46, on Saturday. The Midshipmen (6-7) had won their previous three home games and the Norse (2-6), in their first year of Division I basketball and playing their eighth road game of the season, won their second straight. "We played horrendous today, but we saw this coming for three days. As a coach, you feel helpless when you can't get their attention, and we played like we practiced the last three days," Navy coach Ed DeChellis said.

There were no real fights between the Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers during a joint practice session Saturday at the Ravens' training complex. The closest they came to a skirmish was a brief shoving match between Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee and 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu. And that didn't seem to surprise the father of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. "The amazing thing is these teams that get together, they normally do the two or three days before the game, and then you play the game and get on the plane and go home," said Jack Harbaugh, a retired former football coach at Western Kentucky, Western Michigan and Michigan.

Another Flacco could be playing professional sports in the near future. Tom Flacco, the youngest brother of Ravens quarterback Joe, was selected Saturday in the 32nd round (the 952nd overall pick) of the MLB Draft by his hometown Philadelphia Phillies.

Tom is 6-1 and weighs 187 pounds, according to MLB's Draft Tracker.

Maryland men's basketball assistant coach Dave Dickerson has interviewed for the vacant head coaching job at the University of South Florida, a source at Maryland confirmed yesterday. Dickerson, 36, a 1990 Maryland graduate who played for the Terrapins from 1986 to 1989 and has coached under Gary Williams in College Park for the past seven years, is pursuing his first head coaching job. Dickerson interviewed last month with Clemson, after Larry Shyatt resigned. That job went to former Dayton coach Oliver Purnell.

Western Michigan guard Rashod Johnson couldn't repeat much of the trash-talking that occurred during yesterday's first-round game against Clemson -- out of respect for his parents.But he did recall a comment that Clemson guard Greg Buckner made in the second half, after the Tigers got back in the game following a 15-point first-half deficit."Buckner hit some big shots, and he was letting me know," Johnson said. "He told me he was going to hit 30 before the end of the game."But it was Johnson who wound up making the big shots and surpassing 30. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard tied a Midwest Regional record with eight three-pointers on the way to a career-high 32 points to lead 11th-seeded Western Michigan to the 75-72 upset of sixth-seeded Clemson at the United Center.

Meredith Tolley made a 12-foot jumper from the high post with two seconds remaining on the shot clock and 15 seconds left in the game to break a tie and give Loyola a 58-56 win over visiting UMBC last night. "I would like to say that we see that shot every day in practice," Loyola coach Joe Logan said. "We do take a lot of shots from the high post, but that is not the look that we get every time. I am most excited that a freshman had the courage to step up and hit that shot for us." The win keeps the Greyhounds (4-3)

In the first big surprise of the Ravens offseason, Greg Mattison has left the team to accept the defensive coordinator position at the University of Michigan. The Ravens immediately promoted secondary coach Chuck Pagano to defensive coordinator. Mattison's decision to jump from the NFL to the collegiate level for the same position is uncommon, but a league source said Mattison's ties to Michigan, the college game and new head coach Brady Hoke led him to leave the NFL's 10th-ranked defense.

The transition from Rex Ryan's complex, cover-2 schemes to the new wrinkles of Greg Mattison's defense figures to be more subtle than startling when the Ravens hold their first minicamp of the offseason Friday. "There will be a lot of similarities to what we've run in the past," Mattison said this week. "I think the players will see any changes that have been made and why we made them. Things haven't changed much; we're just going to try to improve what we do." Still, the biggest change from John Harbaugh's first season as Ravens coach to the second will center on the team's unswerving defense.

On the first day of the John Harbaugh era, there was barely time for a handshake and a "Pleased to meet ya." Not surprisingly, no concrete plans were laid out. The starting quarterback for Week 1 wasn't named. The candidates to fill out the new coaching staff weren't paraded about the building. And the offensive and defensive schemes weren't drawn out on a blackboard. What we did learn at yesterday's news conference, in which Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti introduced his new coach, is that the broad strokes already on display lead us to believe that there will be plenty of change ahead.

CHICAGO -- For Western Michigan, the hope was that its three-guard offense would help negate the post play of third-seeded Stanford.And Detroit had the same thoughts, figuring that high-scoring guard Derrick Hayes leading its three-guard attack would be able to keep the Titans in their game against second-seeded Purdue.The lesson learned by the upset-minded teams yesterday at the United Center: Size matters.Stanford used a dominant performance from its front line in its 83-65 win over Western Michigan, helping the Cardinal advance to the Sweet 16 for the second consecutive season.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Whoever puts together North Carolina State highlight reels might as well cast aside the tape the Wolfpack compiled yesterday in its first-round NCAA tournament game at TD Waterhouse Centre. The Wolfpack provided no jaw-dropping dunks and no flashy passes. But the no-frills style did yield a 61-52 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette. "We really don't try to set any trends or do anything like that," said N.C. State senior Marcus Melvin, who scored a game-high 20 points. "We just do what we do. We work hard throughout the year and that's how we play.
