Shalicia Hurns stood in the terminal of Newark Liberty International Airport at 11:30 a.m. yesterday, waiting to hear whether her final grade had been posted.
There was no word by 11:45, but the Rutgers junior boarded her plane anyway and set off for Lubbock, Texas. When she arrived in Dallas -- where she transferred planes -- Hurns learned that, after two unbearable weeks of waiting, she had passed all of her classes and was eligible to play.
Hurns passes but Rutgers fails

In a game that with all the trappings of a postseason showdown, Texas Tech's Plenette Pierson wanted to make sure she elevated her play.
Pierson matched her career high with 31 points and added a career-high 17 rebounds in leading the eighth-ranked Lady Raiders to a 94-81 victory last night over Rutgers.
"This was definitely a physical game; it was a different atmosphere," Pierson said. "We knew that team would come out and try to pound it in against us. We wanted to do the same thing to them."

Around the Big East

The Miami Hurricanes are in town for a bowl game, and you know what that always used to mean.
Controversy, commotion, unrest, outrageous statements.
So it’s been for this Fiesta Bowl. But enough about Ohio State.
Miami? Miami is a pond at dawn. Miami is a flag in no wind. Miami is room temperature.
These Hurricanes are choir boys

Miami's celebrated swagger is a fixture in college football. The Hurricanes are good and they know it.
How good? Should Miami beat Ohio State tonight in the Fiesta Bowl, it becomes the first program to win back-to-back national titles since Nebraska in 1994 and 1995, and extends its winning streak to 35 games. Then the countdown to greatness intensifies. At this time next year, Miami could be playing for another title in the Sugar Bowl and seeking to break the all-time record of 47 straight victories set by Oklahoma from 1954-57.
Classic Coker

Matt Walters signed on with Miami four years ago anticipating he'd be in exactly the position he finds himself in tonight: playing for a national championship when the Hurricanes face Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl.
But the senior defensive tackle never thought he'd be playing for a second straight national championship -- and what probably should have been a third straight, if not for the fickleness of the Bowl Championship Series computers.
Miami playing for title, history

Forget the old image of Miami's offense because it's, well, old. More than anything else, the Hurricanes hammer. If it's not Willis McGahee running it up the middle, where he and coach Larry Coker like to go most often, then it's a monstrous offensive line protecting Ken Dorsey.
Because of that physical presence, the 'Canes are a fourth-quarter team. They outscored opponents 122-42 -- almost 3-1 -- in the fourth quarter.
Fiesta Bowl matchup breakdown

Miami quarterback Ken Dorsey will be playing another game after his No. 1 Hurricanes take on No. 2 Ohio State on Friday night in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
Dorsey will join teammates Freddie Capshaw, Todd Sievers and Matt Walters at the Hula Bowl Maui on Feb. 1, bowl officials announced Thursday.
Miami coach Larry Coker will be coaching one of the all-star teams, they said.
Dorsey will play in Hula Bowl

When the University of Miami football team trots onto the field tonight, it'll be chasing history. Meanwhile, Ohio State will try to recapture it. A wild and wacky college football bowl season comes to an end when the Hurricanes and Buckeyes take center stage in the Fiesta Bowl.
With a victory, No. 1 Miami (12-0) can put itself on a list of programs that have repeated as national champions and extend its winning streak to 35 games. While Nebraska (1994, 1995 and 1970, 1971), Alabama (1978, 1979 and 1965, 1965), Oklahoma (1974, 1975 and 1955, 1956), Notre Dame (1946, 1947), Army (1944, 1945) and Minnesota (1940, 1941) have repeated as national champs going back to 1936, Miami would tie Toledo (1969-71) for the fifth-best winning streak all time among Division I-A programs.

Around the Nation

There has been a Maurice Clarett obsession during the final run-up to Friday night's college football national title game between Miami (Fla.) and Ohio State. In addition to his dispute with Ohio State officials after he was unable to attend a friend's funeral, Clarett, the Buckeyes' freshman tailback, is at the center of what has been billed as the game's dominant story line.
