MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Down by double digits for most of the game and trailing by eight points near the two-minute mark, Maryland could've chalked up an off night at Minnesota to the rigor of Big Ten road play and still returned home in first place.

Darryl Morsell and his teammates refused to concede.

Morsell drained the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left for No. 9 Maryland on Wednesday night, capping a furious comeback for a 74-73 victory with a 10-1 run over the final 2:06.


Former Penn coach given 15-year penalty

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Former Penn coach Jerome Allen was hit a 15-year show-cause penalty after he accepted $300,000 in bribes to get a wealthy Florida businessman's son into the University of Pennsylvania.

The Quakers, out of the Ivy League, also were slapped by the NCAA with two years of probation, fined $5,000 and given recruiting punishments. Allen's show-cause penalty is meant to limit a coach's ability to work in college sports after breaking NCAA rules.


Villanova honors Lowry, tops St. John's

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Kyle Lowry was as headstrong as any Villanova star to wear the uniform, and nearly wore out his welcome with coach Jay Wright before he ever hit the court. The two have since become extremely tight, and when Lowry returned for a night in his honor, Wright requested a picture with Lowry and his two young sons, and a trio of former Wildcats. When the fussy kids were still shooting hoops, Lowry wrangled them over for a quick picture.

"They listen way better than you did," Wright cracked.

Syracuse's Boeheim injures ankle in win

PITTSBURGH (AP) A month ago, the sight of Buddy Boeheim hobbling to the bench might have left Syracuse shaken. Not so much anymore.

Elijah Hughes scored 25 points, Joe Girard III added 16 and Bourama Sibide chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds as the Orange smothered Pittsburgh 72-49 on Wednesday night. Syracuse (16-12, 9-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) did it with Boeheim going scoreless in 15 minutes before turning his left ankle while getting tangled up with Panther guard Xavier Johnson. The Orange's second-leading scorer slowly made his way off the court and didn't return.

Clark's 3 at 2.1 lifts UVa over Va. Tech

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Kihei Clark knew exactly what he was going to do when he took an inbounds pass in a tie game on the road and 11 seconds racing quickly off the clock.

"Yeah. I was shooting it," the sophomore point guard said after his 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds left lifted Virginia to a 56-53 victory at Virginia Tech on Wednesday night, saving them after they blew a big halftime lead.

Azubuike leading KU back atop AP poll

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton had just finished watching Udoka Azubuike bully his way to 19 points and 16 rebounds against his over-matched Cowboys when he pulled the 7-footer aside and pointed to the rafters in Allen Fieldhouse.

"Keep it up," Boynton whispered into the ear of the Kansas center, "and your name will be up there, too."
