MILWAUKEE -- It was just like old times for Rick Barnes and Texas. Tyus Edney Jersey . The Longhorns made a successful return to the NCAA tournament when Cameron Ridley converted a tiebreaking layup as time expired Thursday night, lifting his team to an 87-85 victory over Arizona State. Jonathan Holmes missed badly on a long 3-pointer for the Longhorns in the final seconds, but Ridley emerged from the scrum and banked it in as the buzzer sounded. The call stood after a video replay, handing Texas its first tourney win since 2011. "I went to the glass as hard as I could," Ridley said. Ridley finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the seventh-seeded Longhorns (24-10), who led by 14 with 12 minutes left. Freshman reserve Martez Walker had 16 points and Demarcus Holland scored 14 on 6-for-6 shooting from the field. "It was a great, great college basketball game and I thought it was really very unfortunate that either team had to lose this game," Barnes said. "We were fortunate. ... We didnt have great execution at the end but we found a way to make a couple plays." Texas will face No. 2 seed Michigan Saturday. The Wolverines advanced with a 57-40 victory over Wofford. Jordan Bachynski had 25 points and seven rebounds for No. 10 seed Arizona State (21-12), which was making its first tournament appearance since 2009. Jahii Carson had 19 points and nine assists, and Jermaine Marshall added 17 points and seven rebounds. "Its a tough one, its a tough way to end the game and end my career," Bachynski said. Texas went to the NCAA tournament in each of Barnes first 14 seasons, making it to the 2003 Final Four. But last season was a disaster for the Longhorns, who went 16-18 and lost in the opening round of the College Basketball Invitational. Barnes lost three starters from that team, but Holmes and Ridley returned, and the Longhorns were determined to turn it around after the disappointing finish. They stumbled a bit heading into the tournament, losing five of eight, but they stepped up at the most critical time against the Sun Devils. Holmes made two free throws to give Texas a 61-47 lead with 12:11 to go, and the Longhorns looked ready to blow out the Sun Devils. ASU then scored 17 of the next 22 points, trimming the deficit to two on Jonathan Gillings 3-pointer with 8:15 left. Arizona State had an 83-82 lead when Holmes grabbed an air ball by Javan Felix and scored while being fouled by Gilling. He made the resulting foul shot with 32 seconds to go. Gilling made two free throws on the other end, setting up the frantic finish. Gilling had four 3-pointers and 15 points for the Sun Devils, who lost their last four games of the season. "They just keep playing, theyve been a next-play, next-game team all season," Arizona State coach Herb Sendek said. "I can tell you right now its a very emotional, heartbroken locker room." The battle of at-large teams in the Midwest Regional featured a pair of coaches with a long history together. Barnes first met Herb Sendek at a 1978 basketball camp at the University of Pittsburgh, and Barnes had Sendek on his staff for one season when he was in charge at Providence. They also coached against each other for years in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Their only other meeting in the NCAA tournament occurred in 2006, when Texas beat North Carolina State 75-54 in the round of 32. Both teams got off to fast starts, with Bachynskis jumper for Arizona State tying it at 21 with 12:32 to go. But Texas responded with a 9-0 run, beginning with Walkers two free throws and ending with Walkers 3 from the wing. Walker added a layup with 31 seconds left to help the Longhorns to a 41-36 halftime lead. Spud Webb Jersey . -- Cole De Vries had a couple of key strikeouts during what could have been the inning that doomed him to defeat against the Kansas City Royals, allowing him to escape further damage and keep the game tied up. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey . The first of the three games will be played in Week 4, when the Oakland Raiders will take on the Miami Dolphins on Sept. https://www.cheapkingsbasketball.com/992b-rick-adelman-jersey-kings.html . -- All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham and the New Orleans Saints met Tuesday for arbitration on his contract.DALLAS -- Mark Cuban says hes a follow-the-rules investor who checked with his broker to make sure that his 2004 sale of stock in an Internet company was legal. Cuban testified Thursday that he was upset when the companys CEO told him news that would reduce the value of his shares, for which hed paid $7.5 million. But he said he did nothing improper when he sold those shares over the next two days. The Securities and Exchange Commission is suing the owner of the Dallas Mavericks for insider trading, claiming that he broke a promise of confidentiality and traded on private information that gave him an advantage over other investors. A jury in federal district court is hearing the civil lawsuit, which doesnt involve criminal charges. The case may hinge on a single phone call between Cuban and the CEO of Mamma.com Inc., a search-engine company based in Canada. In recorded testimony played to jurors this week, CEO Guy Faure said he told Cuban about the planned stock issuance. Faure said that Cuban agreed at the outset that the information would be confidential. Cuban testified that he was upset to learn about the stock offering, which would dilute the shares of earlier investors like himself, but he denied ever agreeing to keep the information confidential. He said he couldnt recall details of the conversation. Executives of Mamma.com, a search-engine company based in Canada, believed that Cuban had promised not to trade until the stock offering was publicly announced. Cuban said he would never have made such an agreement. "Nobodys going to tell me" when to trade, he said. An email from his broker at UBS suggested that Cuban asked if his sale of Mamma.com stock was legal. "I dont like to do anything thats not 100 per cent kosher," he wrote. Cuban said he had reasons beyond the stock offering for selling his shares, including concern over ties between Mamma.com and a convicted stock swindler, Irving Kott. But SEC llead lawyer Jan Folena produced an email exchange from early 2004, before Cuban sold his stock, in which he appeared to dismiss another investors worries about Kott. Mike Bibby Jersey. . Folena also produced an email in which Cuban directed a reporter for his sharesleuth.com website to dig up dirt on Faure and Mamma.com. Folena said that Cuban wanted to discredit Faures recollection of the critical 2004 phone call. Folena charged Cuban of cheating because he couldnt stand the idea of losing on an investment. "You look at every loss in your life as a huge failure," she said. "Absolutely not," Cuban answered. Folena then quoted from a business article that Cuban wrote in which he said he took every loss as a huge failure. Cuban was Mamma.coms biggest shareholder, owning a 6 per cent stake. The SEC says Cuban avoided $750,000 in losses by selling on insider information before the shares fell by nearly 10 per cent once the private stock offering was announced. The SEC wants Cuban to give up that money and pay a fine. As Cuban took the witness stand Thursday, he was relaxed -- smiling and making a few jokes. He smiled less often as he jousted throughout the day with Folena. In the afternoon, guided by one of his lawyers, Cuban told the jury his life story -- growing up in Pittsburgh; graduating from Indiana University; moving to Dallas and sharing an apartment with five other guys; starting his first company at 25; becoming a billionaire in 1999 when he and his business partner sold Broadcast.com to Yahoo for $5.7 billion. Cuban looked directly at the jurors as he recounted buying the Mavericks. His wife no longer sits with him because he screams too much, and he misses some games to spend time with his three kids. "Im the luckiest guy in the world," he said of his wealth, which Forbes estimates at $2.5 billion. The jurors paid rapt attention; a few of them smiled. The trial will resume Monday. ' ' '
