"It happened right here," Dan Bitson said. "I went all the way back to that light." He pointed off in the distance. The wind blew and the sky was gray and Bitson, a senior wide receiver for Tulsa, stood by his black Chevy Blazer. He was in a parking lot off Eleventh Street, a few feet from the spot where he nearly lost his life in an auto accident two years ago. It is a busy, four-lane street, and cars buzzed by on this blustery afternoon. Route 66 through Tulsa.

TULSA, Okla. - Jim Thavisay is secretly stalking one of his classmates. And one of them is spying on him. "I have an idea who it is, but I'm not 100% sure yet," said Thavisay, a 25-year-old former casino blackjack dealer. Stalking is part of the curriculum in the Cyber Corps, an unusual two-year program at the University of Tulsa that teaches students how to spy in cyberspace, the latest frontier in espionage. Students learn not only how to rifle through trash, sneak a tracking device on cars and plant false information on Facebook.

Tulsa in the Freedom Bowl? What, Southwestern Louisiana wasn't available? What in the world is the Freedom Bowl coming to? It was a peculiar line of questioning, considering that the Freedom Bowl, in its first seven incarnations, hadn't been much of anywhere. The Freedom Bowl aspires to be Rose Bowl Jr., but to this point, it remains stuck on Holiday Bowl Jr.

Does speed really beat size any day of the week? That's what Tulsa Coach Bill Self likes to say. All that matters in the NCAA South Regional final is which one wins today. Either North Carolina--with its huge, plodding lineup--will be on its way to an improbable Final Four after losing more games than any Tar Heel team since 1952, or Tulsa--with its quick, four-guard team--is going for the first time in school history. It's size versus speed, and history versus hustle.

The weather at Skelly Stadium, home to the University of Tulsa's Golden Hurricane football team, was frightful on the afternoon of Nov. 2. The earliest snow in city history was falling, and so were players for the Hurricane and visiting Southern Mississippi, locked in a 10-10 slip-fest on the ice-covered artificial turf. Southern Mississippi made a late drive into Tulsa territory, but a 35-yard field-goal try with 12 seconds left went awry when the Golden Eagles' kicker lost his footing.

HARD SELL: In the middle of the year-end bowl game rush is Anaheim's Freedom Bowl. But with little tradition of its own, the Freedom has struggled at the gate since its inception in 1984. The best crowd was in 1986, when UCLA was invited. . . . Tonight, with No. 23 Tulsa playing unranked (but almost local) San Diego State, organizers expect a crowd of about 40,000.

Sometime in the not-too-distant future, Tulsa might get the respect it deserves for reaching the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16 two years in a row. But until that happens, don't look for any complaints from Coach Tubby Smith, whose Golden Hurricane (24-7) plays Massachusetts (28-4) tonight in the second game of the East Regional semifinals at the Meadowlands Arena. "I don't look at us as underdogs or that we haven't gotten any respect," said Smith, who has a 79-42 record in four seasons at Tulsa.

Outplayed, outcoached, outhustled, outmuscled, outmanned, outplanned and outrageously bad, UCLA is out of the NCAA basketball tournament and Jim Harrick is in for some serious flak. The coach has to be held accountable for Friday's frightful first half and 112-102 ouster by Tulsa, no matter why it happened, no matter what else happened this season. Harrick already knows what a lot of people are thinking, saying, "The players got 21 wins and the coaches got seven losses.

Tulsa takes on UCLA today, led by senior co-captain--OK, get ready--Lou Alcindor Dawkins. "My uncle actually named me," said Dawkins, a 6-foot-5 guard who averages 12.5 points a game. "I was born in 1971 and I guess Lew Alcindor was the man in college basketball then. I guess he won, like, a bunch of championships in a row." He wasn't sure how many. Uncertainty surrounds Dawkins, whose birth date is listed in Tulsa's preseason media guide as Oct.

All of Tulsa's athletic programs will pay a price for violations by the university's track and field program. The school was banned from postseason competition in all sports this season, and the track and field program was put on three years probation. In addition, the women's golf team had to forfeit its NCAA championship won in 1988.

Monday night's attendance of 34,217 was "very satisfying," according to Freedom Bowl Executive Director Don Andersen. More than 42,000 tickets were sold, but Andersen had feared the weekend's rainy weather would affect the crowd. He also was pleased with the demand for $15 tickets. It was the first time in the bowl's eight-game history that any seat in Anaheim Stadium had gone for less than $28. The "cheap" seats were all located in the south end zone sections.
