If college basketball fans did not know who Melvin Johnson III and the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners were before Wednesday’s NCAA First Four game, they know now.

Johnson came out of so-called shooting slump to poor in a career-high 29 points, leading UTSA to a 70-61 win over Alabama State at UD Arena in Dayton, Ohio.

The Roadrunners (20-13) now head to Cleveland, Ohio for a Friday date against top-seeded Ohio State.

Against the Hornets of Alabama State (17-18), Johnson had so many open shots it seemed like he was playing by himself in his backyard. In the first half, he outscored the Hornets all by himself, 25-21.

Alabama State, from the Southwestern Conference, had the worst record in the expanded 68-team tournament.

The Roadrunners had never won an NCAA tournament game up until Wednesday. Now they can put that talk to rest.

The Hornets, champions of their conference tournament, reached the NCAA Big Dance without having a winning record all season long.

Jeff Middlebrooks and Tramayne Moorer scored 12 points apiece.

Cold-shooting hurts Cavs in loss to New Orleans, 108-101

The Cavaliers lost in New Orleans, 108-101. Generally, in the team’s losses this season, they usually have one bad quarter; during this game, it was the second quarter.

The Cavs were doomed from there as the Hornets scored 15 straight points and held with Cleveland with no points for 4:26.

But the Cavs showed resiliency by coming back and cutting an 18-point lead to 104-101 with 21.1 seconds left but they fell short.

Cavs head coach Byron Scott really wanted the game badly. After all, he was the Hornets coach last year and was fired just nine games into the season. The move angered several players like Chris Paul and David West.

Cavs forward Antawn Jamison finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds and 3 three-point baskets.

David West scored 34 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead 10-1 New Orleans. He had 12 points in the fourth quarter and made key-play-after key-play to help the Hornets win.

Byron Scott is the Cavaliers new coach

Byron Scott felt he didn’t want to wait any longer to get a new headingĀ  in the NBA. With or without LeBron James, he’ll coach the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Scott accepted the Cavs job and hopes that with him being the best coach available, will convince the two-time MVP to stay home and try to win a title.

Scott, who previously coached in New Jersey and New Orleans, will not know for awhile if James will come back or not. But the 49-year-old former NBA star, was ready to take a chance.

Cleveland has been looking for a coach since Mike Brown was fired May 24, ending his five-year reign with the club. Brown guided James and his teammates through the most successful run in franchise history, but fell short of winning a championship.

Scott for years has said his dream job was to coach the Los Angeles Lakers, but with Phil Jackson returning for next season, he decided to take on the Cavs, who now are in a better position to re-sign LeBron James with Scott on the sideline. Scott’s resume’ is exactly the kind of experience that James told owner Dan Gilbert that he and his teammates need to become NBA championships.

James said that he wanted to play for a former NBA player, and Scott’s resume includes 14 seasons, 11 with the Lakers, and 3 NBA titles. He was a teammate of Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on those “Showboat and Showtime” teams under Pat Riley and later with Kobe Bryant. He knows what it takes to win it all.

As a coach, Byron Scott has led lesser-talented teams like the Nets to the finals. In New Orleans, he took the Hornets on a surprising and miraculous run to the Western Conference finals. He coached Chris Paul in New Orleans and still has a good relationship, with Paul who is LeBron James’ best friend.
