Had Connecticut guards Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb missed the bus, called in sick, or both fouled out with 38 minutes left, San Diego State might have won Thursday's West Regional semifinal game by 30. But that didn't happen. You talk about a two-man game. Walker and Lamb combined for 60 points to lead Connecticut to a 74-67 win over the Aztecs at the Honda Center to advance to Saturday's regional final game. Florida chases BYU, Jimmer Fredette out of tournament Walker scored 36 and Lamb added 24, which amounted to 81.1% of the Huskies' offense.

Reporting from San Diego ? The weather, save for the odd rainstorm, is consistently sunny and mild. The daily comings and goings of students, faculty and administrators remain largely unchanged. But D.J. Gay, a senior guard on the San Diego State basketball team, senses a shift on and off campus, especially in regard to the Aztecs athletics program. "There's definitely something different in the air," he said. That's what happens when the university's football team qualifies for a bowl game for the first time in more than a decade, and the men's basketball team is unbeaten and ranked seventh nationally.

vs. San Diego State When: 7. Where: Viejas Arena, San Diego. On the air: Radio: 710. Records: USC 1-1, San Diego State 3-1 Records vs. opponent: USC leads all-time, 10-1. Update: The Aztecs reached the NCAA tournament's West Regional semifinals last season, where they lost to eventual national champion Connecticut. Just one starter returns from that 34-3 team: guard Chase Tapley, who is averaging a team-high 21.8 points per game. With a roster featuring just one player taller than 6 feet 8, expect the athletic Aztecs to play up-tempo while USC tries to score in the middle.

SAN DIEGO - The gunman stalked the dormitory halls yelling "I'm going to kill somebody," pounding and kicking on doors, and firing his weapon in the air. The resident assistants remembered their training: turn off the lights, barricade the doors with chairs and tables, lie flat on the floor, push back if the killer tries to bust in, or jump out a window if it isn't too high. The drama was all staged but with a life-saving purpose Tuesday as a dormitory at San Diego State became a stand-in for Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook Elementary and the engineering building on the campus here - all scenes of deadly rampages.

These were not your 2008 UCLA Bruins. Redshirt freshman quarterback Kevin Prince didn't find a red-faced Coach Rick Neuheisel in his face on Saturday, arms flailing as if he were attempting liftoff. The offensive line provided holes to run through, rather than digging them. Bruins fans left the Rose Bowl murmuring sounds of content. There was such a different feel to UCLA's 33-14 victory over San Diego State that defensive players even complained a little about their offense keeping them off the field.
