Of all the nights to try to beat Gonzaga on its home court, Pepperdine ended up here on this one. It was Senior Night for Dan Dickau. Four thousand fans can get quite loud when they're saying goodbye to their tousle-headed star--and aiming for payback after Pepperdine's upset victory last month in Malibu. Jittery-looking Pepperdine was in trouble from the start, and No.

With two senior forwards and several talented freshmen, it appeared that Coach Todd Corman's vision of turning around the Loyola Marymount women's basketball program would finally materialize. That vision was reinforced after the Lions won five of their first six games, including an impressive 70-62 victory over NCAA Division II powerhouse Cal Poly Pomona. But the start proved to be nothing more than an illusion.

Last week, the 5-foot-8 junior had 31 kills and six digs in a five-game victory over St.

OMAHA -- For five days, the Cal State Fullerton basketball team basked in the spotlight, the Titans attracting so much media attention in the buildup to their NCAA tournament appearance that even loquacious Coach Bob Burton sometimes ran out of words. Now the trick will be to try to build on that success instead of letting it become a distant memory, which is what happened the last time the Titans made the NCAA tournament in 1978. "Hopefully nobody has the mind-set that we're the big thing in the Big West now and we can come back and relax," junior guard Josh Akognon, the team's scoring leader, said after Fullerton's season-ending 71-56 loss to Wisconsin in a first-round game Thursday.

We just need to start whittling away."
