KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- His teammates weren't going to let Roburt Sallie have all the fun in this NCAA tournament. Bouncing back from a first-round malaise that might have sunk them if not for Sallie's record-setting shooting, Memphis hit a sizzling 70 percent in the first half Saturday and rolled past Maryland 89-70 in the second round of the West Regional. All of a sudden the Tigers looked and felt like the team that rode a 25-game winning streak into the tournament they nearly won a year ago. "Everybody was hitting out there," said Shawn Taggart, who had a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the start-to-finish domination of the 10th-seeded Terps.

Oak Hill wins 3rd straight SJIT ST. JAMES - Oak Hill coach Steve Smith will be the first person to admit that his Warriors prefer transition basketball over patience and set plays. In an ironic twist, however, his team won its third straight St. James Invitational Tournament Saturday night by slowing things down. The Warriors couldn't bury an equally fast Newport team in a track meet of a first half, so the Warriors played patient basketball in the second half and picked their spots to pull away for an entertaining 95-78 victory.

Today, on this date, April 9, in the year of our Lord as we now know it 2007, I am proud to say that I voted for John Kerry. True, I was under a bit of duress at the time, and by "bit of duress" I mean that my life had been amply threatened. But a fact is a fact and the peculiarities inconsequential. My vote went in the Kerry column. Also true is the fact that I never bragged about it much. Until now. What did he do to deserve this mental 180 on my part? Condemn the war?

The Detroit Tigers are rolling, reaching 16 games over .500 for the first time this year, and yet they couldn't truly celebrate their 11-1 rout of the Washington Nationals on Wednesday. Miguel Cabrera was out of the lineup, and Jhonny Peralta was possibly in it for the last time for a long time. Alex Avila and Torii Hunter hit homers in a five-run second inning and Detroit scored five more runs in the fourth inning, getting a relatively strong outing from Justin Verlander after his shaky start.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the world's top golfer hit the hydrant and then a tree after pulling out of his driveway in his 2009 Cadillac SUV. Woods spokesman Glenn Greenspan said the golfer was treated at Health Central Hospital and released in good condition. The accident report classified Woods' injuries as serious, but patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes said troopers consider the injuries serious if they require more than minor medical attention.

A spokeswoman for Peace cereal blamed a "proofreading error. " Dial the 800 number, which I did purely in the name of investigative journalism, and a breathy voice beckons the caller to "whip out your big credit card" to talk to nasty girls from around the world.
