Rick Majerus, the college basketball coach who led Utah to the 1998 NCAA final and had only one losing season in 25 years with four schools, died Saturday. He was 64. Utah industrialist Jon Huntsman Sr., the coach's longtime friend, confirmed in a statement released through the Salt Lake Tribune that Majerus died of heart failure in a Los Angeles hospital.

Six teams headed for the 2013 NCAA tournament this week have Academic Progress Rates below 930, meaning they would not be eligible for the postseason under tougher NCAA requirements that will be enacted in the future. Oregon, Oklahoma State, James Madison, Saint Louis, Southern and New Mexico State fell below the 930 line this year, according to a study released Monday by the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida. Saint Louis, Southern and New Mexico State also missed the present APR standard of 925 -- which equates to about a 50% graduation rate -- but are eligible to play under the current rules.

Saint Louis, in defeating DePaul, 56-49, Saturday for the Conference USA tournament championship, became only the fifth NCAA tournament-bound team to win four games in four days. Two other Conference USA teams accomplished the feat in the five years the conference has existed but neither was seeded as low (No. 9) as St. Louis (19-13).
