The presenter and recipient of the John R. Wooden Award were both newsworthy Friday night at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. Wooden's son Jim delivered the award as college basketball's player of the year to high-scoring Brigham Young guard Jimmer Fredette in the first appearance by a Wooden family member at the event in six years. The legendary UCLA coach and the club had a falling out in 2005 over the club's unhappiness with Wooden allowing his name to be used for another award given to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

NEW ORLEANS -- Florida couldn't rewrite history, but it could create a new chapter. A year after losing to Brigham Young in double overtime in the first round of the NCAA tournament, the Gators found a way to win in extra minutes. Second-seeded Florida (29-7) took a 83-74 win over BYU in the Sweet 16 in New Orleans Arena on Thursday. They advanced to the final game of the Southeast Region on Saturday against the winner of Thursday's late game between No. 4 Wisconsin and No. 8 Butler.

Top-seeded teams No. 1 Pittsburgh: The Panthers have lost some close ones recently but take care of the ball with a 1.49 assist-to-turnover ratio and a 10.4 rebound margin, second-best in the nation. No. 2 Florida: The Gators slipped up against Jacksonville and South Carolina early but have a formidable backcourt duo with Erving Walker and Kenny Boynton. No. 3 Brigham Young: The loss of Brandon Davies, dismissed for violating his school's honor code, puts all the more pressure on high-scoring Jimmer Fredette.

East Regional No. 4 Kentucky (26-8) vs. No. 5 West Virginia (21-11), 9:15 a.m., Tampa, Fla., Ch. 2: West Virginia upset Kentucky in a regional final last season, but neither team is as good now. West Virginia is physical and aggressive on defense and excellent on the offensive boards. Wildcats center Josh Harrellson leads the SEC in offensive rebounds.. Southeast Regional No. 1 Pittsburgh (28-5) vs. No. 8 Butler (24-9), 4 p.m., Washington, TBS: Butler, of course, lost in the national final last season, and Pitt, of course, never has been to the Final Four under Jamie Dixon.

PROVO, Utah -- Phillip McDonald scored 26 points to lead New Mexico to an 82-64 upset of No. 3 Brigham Young on Wednesday night, two days after the Cougars dismissed leading rebounder Brandon Davies for a violation of the school's honor code. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Davies was dismissed for engaging in premarital sex. The loss left the Cougars (27-3, 13-2 Mountain West Conference) reeling just as they had vaulted into the top five nationally and sought a coveted No. 1 seeding in the NCAA tournament.

The one team San Diego State did not want to face in the NCAA tournament was a team that looked like Brigham Young. BYU handed the Aztecs their only two losses this year. The selection committee didn't bother to ask San Diego State for its playing-style preference, though, so the second-seeded Aztecs ended up playing Thursday against Northern Colorado, which certainly resembled BY-you-know-who. The Bears are built around a hyper-scoring guard, Devon Beitzel, who does a terrific Jimmer Fredette imitation.

Kids in sleeping bags camped out to buy tickets for a San Diego State basketball game? They must have been filming "Anchorman II. " Watching action-news reporters doing stand-ups outside Viejas Arena on Thursday seemed a nuttier premise than Ron Burgundy chasing the panda story. But it was no joke. Students started camping Tuesday for Saturday's home showdown against Brigham Young, by far the biggest game in program history. Sabrina Garcia, a freshman psychology major from Brea, sat on a sidewalk midday Thursday wondering if her parents would be proud.

Jimmer Fredette , who led the country in scoring and became a one-name star in his senior season at Brigham Young, was selected the Associated Press' player of the year. "It's been quite a ride and it's been a lot of fun and I wouldn't take anything back," Fredette said. "I had quite the career at BYU. There were a lot of ups and downs, but there were a lot more ups this year. " The Cougars won the Mountain West Conference regular-season title, lost to San Diego State in the tournament final, fell to Florida in overtime in the NCAA tournament round of 16 and finished with a 32-5 record.

It's time to forget February and separate the schools you didn't want to play in December and January, Texas and Villanova, from the teams you don't want to play now. Timing is everything as the NCAA tournament approaches. Texas started out 11-0 in Big 12 Conference play and seemed on track to challenge for a championship in Houston, site of this year's Final Four. Wouldn't it be cool if the Longhorns replicated the Dallas Cowboys' feat of winning this year's Super Bowl in their home state?
