John Jimmerson, a freshman who played basketball at Marquette, has expressed an interest in transferring to San Diego State. Jimmerson quit Marquette's team earlier this month, and he would be eligible to play next December at SDSU if he transferred before next semester. "He's a 6-6 kid, and we don't have those kind of kids in our program," Coach Smokey Gaines said. Jimmerson was a teammate of Aztec center Kevin Brown last year at Ottawa Hills High School in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Creighton and Marquette, both ranked in the Associated Press men's top 25, are the headliners in the Wooden Legacy basketball tournament that begins Thursday at Cal State Fullerton.

The last couple of years, Marquette might have lost a game like this. As the clock ticked down and their lead dwindled, the Golden Eagles might have fallen apart. "Guys would have stopped talking," guard Jerel McNeal said. "Guys would have started hanging their heads a little bit." But this is a team that learned from quick exits in the last two NCAA tournaments, a team that showed maturity by holding off Kentucky, 74-66, in a first-round South Regional game at the Honda Center on Thursday.

Marquette squeaked into the No. 25 spot of the AP's college basketball poll this week, but Coach Mike Deane said Monday he isn't certain his team belongs there. "We aren't a great team or a spectacular team, but we played well to date," Deane said of his team, which has won its first eight games. "I don't think of us as a top-25 team, but the games we won we did so in pretty good fashion. We can beat any team on a given night."

LAHAINA, Hawaii - USC's trip to Hawaii has been less than picturesque. But the Trojans are better off than Texas after beating the Longhorns, 59-53, in overtime Tuesday at the Maui Invitational in a game in which neither team shot well. "Both of us were in desperate mode," USC Coach Kevin O'Neill said. "It was a rock fight. " Dewayne Dedmon made a layup and a free throw with less than two minutes to play to put USC up for good. Sheldon McClellan banked in a putback with 25.9 seconds left to get Texas within two points, but J.T. Terrell made two free throws on the next possession to secure the win. "At least we competed," Coach Rick Barnes said, clearly still smarting from his team's 13-point loss to Division II Chaminade on Monday night.

With "High School," director/co-writer John Stalberg Jr. attempts to make the ultimate teen stoner comedy, but the movie winds up a disappointing buzz kill. A potential valedictorian (Matt Bush) tries marijuana for the first time only to discover his maniacal principal (Michael Chiklis) is imposing mandatory drug testing on everyone at the school. This launches an ill-conceived idea from the red-eyed pal (Sean Marquette) who got him high in the first place to get the entire student body baked on pot brownies to throw off the results, a bit of stoned logic that also requires ripping off the local weirdo dealer (Adrien Brody)

The slower the pace, the better for the Badgers in this one. Wisconsin's three-point shooting is going to be important; the Badgers make 36.3% from beyond the arc, but Syracuse's zone limits opponents to 30.7%. Syracuse forces 16.4 turnovers per game and the Orange thrives in transition.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Marquette Coach Buzz Williams called timeout during the first half Friday, put his hands in his pockets and exhaled deeply. In a media timeout with less than three minutes remaining, he was clapping and gathering his team around him enthusiastically with hopes of a desperate rally. After finding ways to stage upset comebacks in its first two NCAA tournament games, the 11th-seeded Golden Eagles couldn't devise a method to solve this complex problem in its huddle: North Carolina's size and athleticism.
