SAN ANTONIO -- Nebraska coach Tim Miles couldnt fix the cold shooting or sloppy passes. The Big Ten coach of the year did see one thing he could correct: an overlooked shot clock error. Nope. These Huskers werent even going to get that right. Miles was instead ejected while trying to alert officials to the mistake, and 11th-seeded Nebraska would soon join their coach out of the NCAA tournament, falling to No. 6 seed Baylor 74-60 in the second round Friday. "Im thinking, Thats a correctible error. That is something we can go correct, and the official came over and Td me up," Miles said of getting his second technical foul. "I said Its the shot clock; it never ran. I was trying to look for the shot clock operator, and Im assuming its the guy that just dropped his head." The Cornhuskers lost again in their seventh tournament appearance. It punctuated a frustrating end to an otherwise fabulous season for a program that has long been an afterthought at football-crazed Nebraska. But basketball success is expected at Baylor (25-11), which has won 11 of 13 after a dismal start in the Big 12. The Bears didnt make last years tournament, but rolled to the Elite Eight in 2010 and 2012. Now theyre surging again. "The past Elite Eights that we did have were good runs, but this year were just looking at it as checking it one game at a time," said Cory Jefferson, who scored 16 points and was with Baylor for both those trips. "We had ours today, the next one is on Sunday. Well look at one game, and well move on from there." Baylor will play either No. 3 seed Creighton or No. 14 seed Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday. Terran Petteway scored 18 points for Nebraska (19-13), which hadnt played on this stage since 1998 and often looked like it. Nebraska missed nine of its first 10 shots, laboured through a 9-minute scoring drought then lost their coach midway through the second half. The officials tossed Miles after ringing him up for a second technical foul in nearly as many minutes. He first erupted after Petteway, the Big Tens leading scorer, picked up his fourth foul just after Nebraska cut the lead to single digits. Two minutes later, Miles was gone. "I didnt want an unfair competitive advantage. The same contact here should be the same contact there," Miles said. But he also didnt make excuses. "Officiating is not what did us in," he said. Referee Karl Hess issued a statement after the game acknowledging a shot clock error that both the operator and officials didnt notice. But he didnt suggest that giving Miles a second technical was wrong, referencing a section of the NCAA rulebook that prohibits "inciting undesirable crowd reactions" and certain conduct while objecting to an officials decision. As Miles walked toward the tunnel, he drew a standing ovation from a Texas crowd splashed with a healthy swath of Big Red. It was a big day for the state of Nebraska at the AT&T Center: Creightons game was next up, and fans shed red shirts at the buzzer to reveal Bluejay blue underneath. Isaiah Austin scored 13 points and Brady Heslip added 12 points for Baylor. The Bears didnt outshoot the Cornhuskers but got to the free throw line three times as often -- they made 38 of 48, compared to 10 of 16 for Nebraska. Shavon Shields scored 16 points and Ray Gallegos had 15 for the Cornhuskers. That Baylor and Nebraska were even here was a doubtful scenario just two months ago. Both teams nosedived toward February with a combined 2-11 record in conference play, with the Cornhuskers fulfilling historically low expectations and the Bears bottoming out after being ranked high as No 7 in the nation. Their turnarounds were almost simultaneous. Refusing to settle for a fourth losing season in five years, Nebraska won 10 of its last 13 and seized an unlikely status as one of the biggest surprises in the country. Baylor, meanwhile, won 10 of its final 12 during a hot streak that included a dominating march to the Big 12 tournament final.

Cox started the season with San Francisco, but was released by the team on Nov. 12 before being signed by Seattle, where he appeared in two games and tallied three tackles before being released on Dec.INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- The No. 1 overall pick is still looking for basket No. 1. Anthony Bennett, the first player taken in this years NBA draft, hasnt scored a field goal for the Cavaliers. Through four games, Clevelands burly forward from Brampton, Ont., has missed each of his 15 shots from the field, including eight 3-pointers. He appears lost with the ball in his hands, causing some to wonder if the Cavs made a mistake with their choice. Hes O-for-the-season so far. According to STATS, Bennett is just the fifth rookie -- playing a minimum of five minutes -- to begin his career without making a field goal in the first four games. None of the other four, though, was selected ahead of every player in the draft. Cavs coach Mike Brown said there are several reasons for Bennetts drought. "Hes probably pressing to a certain degree," Brown said after practice Tuesday. "So its probably a little of that and a little bit of being on a big stage now in the regular season with it counting. Theres probably some of where his opponents are looking at him and saying that theyre going to come at him. They may not care that hes the No. 1 pick." For comparisons sake, Philadelphia 76ers rookie Michael Carter-Williams has 26 field goals already, and eight other rookies who have attempted at least 15 shots have put one shot through the rim. Bennetts alarming field-goal deficiency extended to four games Monday night when he went 0 for 3 in 10 minutes during a 93-92 win over Minnesota. He was not available to speak to reporters following practice as he quickly dressed and went home to take care of personal business before the Cavs flew to Milwaukee. The 20-year-old showed flashes of offensive firepower during the exhibition season, but the regular season has been nothing but a series of missed shots. He is 2 for 4 at the free-throw line, with each attempt coming in his NBA debut against Brooklyn. The Cavs insist its too early for them to be overly concerned about Bennetts scoring woes. Brown dismissed any thought of sitting the first-year player to clear his head.dddddddddddd However, Bennetts inability to score -- hes averaging 12.8 minutes per game -- could show that hes going to need some extra time before he can be counted on as a major contributor. "I look at it as hes a guy that can grow slowly into his role with us and thats the exciting part of it," Brown said. "I just want him to keep going out there and playing, and if you can take advantage of your opponent on either end of the floor, go ahead and do it." And while Bennett hasnt delivered on the offensive end, the 6-foot-8, 240-pounder has provided some solid defence and rebounding. At Indiana last Saturday night, when he tried to flip in a layup and had it roll around the rim and out, Bennett grabbed six boards. "Defensively, hes been better than what I thought," Brown said. "I actually thought he was going to struggle defensively -- bad. But hes picked up on the concepts and hes been tougher and stronger than what I expected. "At the end of the day, and Ive seen it with my own eyes, he can score. He can score from all three levels and once he figures out how hard he has to play offensively in order for it to happen on a possession by possession occurrence, hell be good." Until then, Bennett is getting support from his teammates. Theyre urging him to keep his chin up and the shots will eventually go down. "We just keep encouraging him," point guard Jarrett Jack said. "We want him to understand, You made it this far because you are a special player and dont ever forget that. The one thing you do have to have in this league to be successful is confidence, and once that starts to waver, its going to have a snowball effect. "There was going to be a time this season when he was going to have a tough three-game stretch. Its just that it started in the first couple of games. There are 78 more to go. Once were in January or February and hes being his old self, Ill go over to him and say, You did all that worrying for nothing." First, though, Bennett needs to make a shot. ' ' '
