TUCSON, Ariz. - Billy White had 16 points and 13 rebounds and Kawhi Leonard sealed San Diego State's exhausting, 71-64 double-overtime victory over Temple with a steal and a slam dunk in a third-round NCAA tournament thriller on Saturday.

White sank the go-ahead jumper and Leonard made two free throws as the second-seeded Aztecs (34-2) used one last burst of their magnificent athleticism to finally put away the pesky, No. 7 seed Owls (26-7).

Ramone Moore scored 17 for Temple, which was coming off a 66-64 last-second victory over Penn State in the second round. San Diego State, never an NCAA tournament winner before this season, advanced to the West regional semifinals Thursday in Anaheim, Calif., against the winner of Saturday night's Cincinnati-Connecticut matchup.

  • Yemeni general defects as president's grip erodes Mar 21, 2022 07:13 AM

    • SANAA, Yemen - Three Yemeni army commanders, including a top general, defected Monday to the opposition calling for an end to President Ali Abdullah Saleh's rule, as army tanks and armored vehicles deployed in support of thousands protesting in the capital.
    • With the defection, it appeared Saleh's support was eroding from every power base in the nation - his own tribe called on him to step down, he fired his entire Cabinet ahead of what one government official said was a planned mass resignation, and his ambassador to the U.N. and human rights minister quit.
    • A Hashid leader said the tribe, eager to keep the president's job for one of its own, was rallying behind one of the men, Maj. Gen. Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, as a possible replacement for Saleh.

        • The future leaders of Russia's Navy quizzed the Pentagon chief on the likelihood of joint training and military exercises between the two nations.
        • There was no mention of Russia's unease with the Libya attack, and Gates avoided the subject as well when asked about the primary roles of the U.S. Navy.

                • The second week of the NCAA tournament will be sprinkled with the typical blend of favorites and underdogs, the familiar and the obscure, with a notable lack of Big East flavor in that mix.
                • "The Big East is overrated and after Notre Dame loses tonight, it's just going to be another feather in my cap," said opinionated analyst Charles Barkley, a few minutes before the second-seeded Irish took the court against No.
