Alabama-Birmingham, a member of Conference USA, has fired head basketball coach Mike Davis after six seasons.

Davis led the Blazers to a 15-16 season this year and lost six of its first seven games.

The former coach of Indiana, Davis posted a 122-73 at UAB and had one year remaining on his contract.

Dayton, Ohio — In the early going in Wednesday night’s opening game of the FIRST FOUR, the Vermont Catamounts tried to get a feel of the Lamar Cardinals, athleticism, speed, offensive and defensive sets and trailed 8-2 early.

But then, like an orchestra getting fine-tuned, they turned that 8-2 deficit into a 17-4 run and by the third TV timeout at 7:48, they led 22-12 and were never headed in a 71-59 win in the 74th NCAA Men’s Division I National Championship at the University of Dayton Arena.

The victory was the second in the history of Vermont basketball in the tournament.

Vermont defeated stunned Syracuse in 2005 in overtime, 60-57 and they also have a win in the CBI two years ago against Wisconsin Green Bay.

The Catamounts shot 50% from the floor, were 17 of 24 from the free throw line for 70.8 % had only 3 turnovers and the only blemish of the night, was that they were outrebounded 40-34 in improving their record to 24-11.

Vermont was led by Four McGlynn with 18 points, Matt Glass with 11 and Brian Voelke pulling down 12 boards.

Lamar, coached by Pat Knight, son of legendary coach Bobby Knight, ends the season at 23-12.

The Cardinals were led in scoring by Mike James and Devon Lamb with 16 points each, 14 points from Anthony Miles and 13 rebounds from Stan Brown.

The Cardinals shot free throws well, 15 of 21 for 71.4%, but only shot 33% from the floor and could not keep up with Vermont’s constant movement without the ball and could not play tight enough defense to shut down the determined Catamounts.

Vermont’s bench was stronger scoring 35-5 in that key stat.


*Vermont’s Four McGlynn was the 2011-2012 America East Conference Rookie of the year.

* Vermont head coach John Becker in his first year, keeps adding win totals to his already record for a rookie coach with 24. The previous record was 16.

* This was Lamar’s sixth NCAA Tournament appearance. But they have not won a tourney game since 1983.

There are several college basketball coaches and experts who say that the Big Ten player of the year award should go to Ohio State senior David Lighty.

Especially after Lighty scored 13 consecutive points and had three steals in less than three minutes in the second half in #2 Ohio State’s 89-70 win over the Illinois Fighting Illini in Value City Arena.

Lighty scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half to lead OSU (26-2, 13-2) which kept a one-game lead over Purdue in the loss column with three games to play in the Big Ten season.

William Buford scored all 17 of his points in the first half, Jon Diebler with 13, Jared Sullinger and Aaron Craft 12 apiece for the Buckeyes.

Mike Davis scored 18 points to lead the Illini (17-11, 7-8) who trailed by 15 at halftime, 47-32.

Longest game in Big Ten Tournament history, goes to Buckeyes, 88-81 in 2 overtimes

For the Buckeyes to gain their 26th win of the season they really had to buckle down to earn it. Evan Turner overcoming some turnover problems,  a 20-0 second half run to erase an Illinois lead of 10-points and playing 2 overtimes and surviving Illinois having the last shot to win the game at the end of regulation and at the end of the first overtime. And not to mention, Ohio State endured two long scoring droughts, more than 7 minutes in the first half and more than 4 minutes in the second half.

Number 5 Ohio State and Evan Turner’s 31 points are in the championship game of the Big Ten Tournament Sunday afternoon against the Minnesota Golden Gophers who upset Purdue in the other semifinal game.

The 26-7 Buckeyes are trying to make a case for a number 1 seed along with several other top 10 teams who won their conference tournament. And Turner is doing everything he can to make sure it happens for the Buckeyes.

To go along with his 31 points, he grabbed 10 rebounds had 2 assists and 2 steals but on the negative side, he committed 10 of  Ohio State’s 18 turnovers. But he played more than 14 minutes with four fouls and finally fouled out with one minute left in the game.

The Illinois Fighting Illini could’ve been in the championship game themselves if they had converted on one of two possible game winning shots at the buzzer. Mike Davis didn’t get a wide open layup off in time at the end of regulation, and D.J. Richardson missed  a long  jumper after the red lights lit up on the backboard at the close of the first overtime.

William Buford had 22 points and 14 rebounds. John Diebler finished with 14 points, joining the Buckeyes’ 1,000-club. His fourth 3-point goal, just 15 seconds into the 2nd overtime, gave him a school record 273. Jamar Butler, who graduated two years ago, held the previous mark of 272.

19-14 Illinois will have to wait until Sunday evening to see if they will make the NCAA Tournament. They were led in scoring by Evan Turner’s high school classmate and friend, Demetri McCamey, with 22 points; D.J. Richardson had 15 points, and Mike Davis scored 13 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, one short of Greg Oden’s single-game tournament record of 19.
