No. 20 Drake moves on to conference semifinals

ST. LOUIS — Adam Emmenecker had 13 points and 10 rebounds for his first career double double and No. 20 Drake beat Indiana State 68-46 Friday in the quarterfinals of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament.

Leonard Houston scored all of his 16, including three 3-pointers, in the second half for the Bulldogs. Drake plays Creighton in the semifinals today.


Sacramento StATE coach fired: Jerome Jenkins was fired after eight seasons. He went 80-147 with the Hornets, who fell to 4-24 this season, finishing last in the Big Sky Conference and missing the league tournament for the second straight year.

Late Thursday

No. 3 UCLA 77, No. 7 Stanford 67, OT: The Cardinal was just 5½ minutes from keeping its Pac-10 Conference title hopes alive.

But the host Bruins overcame an 11-point deficit in those final 5½ minutes, needed two free throws from Darren Collison, after a controversial foul call, with 2.5 seconds left to force overtime and then prevailed.

The victory clinched UCLA's third consecutive conference title and 30th overall.

The Bruins took the lead for good on Collison's putback with 1:58 to go in OT. But it was the play Collison made — or the call he received — at the end of regulation that decided the outcome.

Lawrence Hill had put Stanford in front 63-61 when he weaved for a layup with seven seconds to go. Collison then drove the left baseline and collided with Hill, who was standing a few feet from the basket.

Was it a foul?

"He drew contact when he went to the basket," Hill said. "I tried to block it. It was all on him to hit the free throws, though."
