Gator women shock Vols; men, USF fall

Florida's women's basketball team pulled off a monumental upset Sunday, defeating No. 5 Tennessee 95-93 in overtime. It marked the Gators' second-ever victory against the six-time national champs and the first time the Vols lost to an unranked opponent at Thompson-Boling Arena, which opened in 1987 (and 16th loss there against any team). Meanwhile, Florida's men lost their third in a row, 82-77 at Alabama. And USF's men failed in likely their last legitimate chance to win a Big East game this season, falling 62-44 to Rutgers. The Bulls have two games left, at home against No. 3 Connecticut (which beat No. 2 Villanova 89-75 on Sunday) on Wednesday and No. 23 Georgetown on Saturday.

OUT OF BOUNDS

NITTANY LIONS PROTEST: About three dozen people protested against Penn State women's basketball coach Rene Portland during Sunday's game against Ohio State. The protesters, who had tickets, watched without causing a disturbance. They laid a rainbow flag on three rows of empty seats then waved it at halftime. Ex-player Jennifer Harris has sued Portland, accusing the coach of asking her to try to look more "feminine" and discriminating against lesbians and those who she believed were lesbians. Portland has denied the allegations. Several hundred fans held "We Believe in Rene" signs distributed by supporters.
