Hoops: Horns' Title Run Comes Up Short

NEW ORLEANS -- The best player on the court Saturday night in the Superdome wore orange. But his name is not <B>T.J. Ford</b>. It's <B>Carmelo Anthony</b>. And because of that, the Orangemen of Syracuse rather than the Burnt Orange of Texas will play Kansas in Monday's national championship game.

T.J., Horns Loose; Anthony, 'Cuse Confident

NEW ORLEANS -- <B>T.J. Ford</b> tossed the ball high in the air, waited for the bounce and then leapt skyward for the dunk. Meanwhile, <B>Jason Klotz</b> hung around near the three-point line, launching long range bombs, connecting on more threes than T.J. did dunks. <B>James Thomas</b> shot free throws.

Hoops: In The 'Zone'

The patented Syracuse zone defense has many names and even more victims. Some call it a basic 2-3; others say the Orangemen operate primarily out of a box and one. Most call it virtually impenetrable (just ask Oklahoma and Oklahoma State). Head coach <B>Rick Barnes </b>simply labeled it "big" and "long" Monday but, rest assured, it's not something his team hasn't dealt with before.

March Maddening: Texas Tech Stuns Texas, 92-81

This was good for Texas, right? A 92-81 setback to Texas Tech Friday in the second round of the Big 12 Basketball Tournament in Dallas? Yeah, in a macabre sort of way. Sort of like a barium enema can do the body wonders.

Hoops: UT's Rally Falls Short At OSU

A furious second-half rally, sophomore G <B>T.J. Ford</B>'s career high 32 points (9-14 FGs, 15-19 FTs), and junior C <B>James Thomas</B>' career best 17 boards were not enough for No. 3 Texas to overcome No. 16 Oklahoma State's ridiculous three-point shooting at Stillwater Saturday, as the Cowboys gutted out a hard-fought 82-77 win.
