The Buckeyes win over UAB was aided by a rushing attack that garnered 204 yards on 37 carries.

Leading the way was running back Jordan Hall, who earned his first 100-yard collegiate game (105).

Hall’s 105 yards were a career high on 17 carries which surpasses the 90 yards he had against New Mexico State in 2009. He was one shy of the career-best 18 carries he earned twice before against Michigan State in 2011.

Gene Bartow, who is best remembered as succeeding John Wooden at UCLA and later in his career started up the Alabama-Birmingham basketball program, has died of stomach cancer at age 81.

Bartow coached the Memphis State Tigers from 1970-74 and led the school to the 1973 national championship game, where the Tigers lost to Wooden and the UCLA Bruins.

Bartow was one of the winningest coaches in NCAA Division I with 647 victories over 34 seasons.

He replaced the retiring Wooden as UCLA’s head coach in 1976 and led the Bruins to the Final Four.

Bartow left after just two seasons to start the basketball program at Alabama-Birmingham. He was UAB’s coach from 1978-96 before handing over the coaching job over to his son, Murry, who currently is the head coach at East Tennessee State University, where he is thriving with a record of 162-97 overall and 101-45 in the Atlantic Sun Conference.

NCAA FIRST FOUR GAME, Dayton, Ohio: Brownell makes return to Dayton successful as Clemson advances

Clemson University head coach Brad Brownell was excited Sunday when he found out that his team was in the NCAA Tournament. He was equally as excited when he found out that the Tigers would be playing in Dayton, Ohio.

Brownell, for four years previous to coaching at Clemson, was the head coach of the Wright State University Raiders who are located 15 miles to the north in the Dayton suburb of Fairborn. He had always wanted to play an annual game against the Dayton Flyers, but could never get a deal done.

Jerai Grant

He did get a win on the Flyers’ home court, UD Arena¬† Tuesday night as the Clemson Tigers won an NCAA Tournament game for the first time in 14 years, 70-52 over UAB.

Jerai Grant scored a career-best 22 points and the Tigers got off to a quick-start with a double-figure lead and never let up in beating Alabama-Birmingham, the regular-season champions of Conference USA.

Grant canned 10 of 15 shots from the field and also grabbed seven rebounds.

Jamarr Sanders had 19 points and Dexter Fields 12 for UAB.

The Tigers (22-11) will now turn their attention to fifth-seeded West Virginia (20-11) on Thursday afternoon in Tampa, Florida.

Sarikopoulos tells Buckeyes he will not return

Telling head basketball coach Thad Matta that he had struggled for several weeks with his decision to return to Ohio State for two more years or to go pro, Junior center Zisis Sarikopoulas will not be returning but will remain in his native Greece and play professional basketball.

The 7-foot Sarikopoulos played just one season for Ohio State after transferring from Alabama-Birmingham (UAB) after the 2007-2008 season. He sat out the 2008-2009 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules before playing in 14 contests for the Buckeyes last season.

But with the Buckeyes having a glut of talented frontcourt players coming in as freshman, Sarikopoulos figured his role and playing time wouldn’t change much.
