Rashod Johnson wanted to share the biggest and most important performance of his basketball career, so he did what any actor might do. He bowed to his fans. "That's the first time I've ever bowed. It just happened. I don't know what to say," Johnson said Friday after making eight three-point baskets to lead No. 11-seeded Western Michigan to a 75-72 victory over No. 6 Clemson in the Midwest Regional. "I just wanted to thank the crowd for being here. I try to show emotion on the floor."

There are no Western Michigans or Loyola Marymounts in the Pacific 10 Conference, a fact USC seems to be slowly grasping as it inches toward conference play. Even though the Trojans continue to pile up victories against teams from mid-major conferences, they are just starting to show the attention to detail they will need to avoid another last-place conference finish.

Ahead 22-7 in the fourth quarter, the funny little Zips of Akron reverted to form for a while. They gave up a late touchdown to Buffalo, then saw the Bulls recover an on-side kick and march to the Akron 17. But Buffalo lost a fumble and the game, 14-22. And Akron (1-11), by winning, lost its bid for the Bottom Ten title. Is there anything sadder than a last-game victory to mar a perfect season? Instead, the chumpionship went to vanishing Buffalo (2-10), which had previously pulled off crucial late-season defeats to Fum-Ball State (4-8)

Tulane's Green Ripple was idle last week but tightened its hold on first place because it looked so poor in practice. Moving up to No. 2 was Purdon't, which recorded a 21-28 upset loss to Northern Illinois -- the equivalent of, say, a top-10 team falling to Washington. Meanwhile, Maryland claimed No. 3 after it was beaten by Middle Tennessee State. Imagine if it had been forced to play a team representing the entire state of Tennessee. No. 4 Ball State again demonstrated its lack of athleticism, which is surprising since, as its name indicates, the school accepts physical education majors only.
