wever, South Carolina guard Devan Downey urged students to join the players in celebration as time ran out.

The scene was so crazy, Kentucky coach John Calipari headed straight for the locker room instead of walking to South Carolina’s bench for the traditional postgame handshake.

DAWSON TO ENTER HALL AS AN EXPO
Andre Dawson will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame as a Montreal Expo, despite his preference to go in as a Chicago Cub.

Dawson said hall officials made the decision without discussing it with him. "I’m disappointed,” he said. "I can proudly say that because Chicago was my preference.”

The induction ceremony in Cooperstown, N.Y., is July 25. Dawson will be wearing a Montreal cap on his plaque.

Dawson played his first 11 seasons with Montreal, then spent six seasons with the Cubs and one season each with Boston and Florida before retiring in 1996.

CUBS KEEPING TRAINING CAMP IN ARIZONA
The Chicago Cubs announced that they will keep their spring training home in Mesa, Ariz., a move that rebuffs suitors in Florida and keeps Arizona’s highest-drawing spring training team in town.

The deal requires voters in Mesa, a Phoenix suburb, to approve a funding mechanism for an $84 million stadium and training facility.

The Cubs have had their camp in Arizona for 57 years. Naples, Fla., had tried to lure the team there.
