Michael Strickland hit nine of 12 three-point shots as Texas Christian upset eighth-ranked Arkansas, 81-79, Wednesday night in a Southwest Conference game at Ft. Worth. Strickland tied the SWC three-point record set by Texas' Travis Mays last year against Rice. All 27 of his points came on three-point shots. "I hit a couple of shots early, and that kept my confidence level up," Strickland said. "I wanted to keep my head up because I hadn't been shooting well lately."

A new breed of freshmen will be playing college basketball this season. They're sophomores. Proposition 48, which set minimum academic requirements for incoming freshmen athletes, put 90 Division I basketball prospects strictly in the classroom last season, barred from practicing or playing for the programs that are paying their way through school. This year, many are back, a year older and, presumably, a year wiser. USC's Anthony Pendleton is one.

Kendall Gill scored 22 points and had 10 rebounds Saturday as fourth-ranked Illinois defeated No. 15 Memphis State, 83-71, in the championship of the Old Style tournament at Rosemont, Ill. But it was Gill's defense that kept Illinois (10-0) undefeated. Gill, a 6-foot-6 senior, was instrumental in holding Memphis State's Elliot Perry to 17 points in a matchup of two of the country's best guards. Perry had scored 33 in Memphis State's overtime victory over Ball State Friday.
