SPORTLIGHT

March 16

1938 Temple defeats Colorado 60-36 in the first National Invitational Tournament and the first major postseason basketball tournament.

1947 Billy Taylor of the Detroit Red Wings sets an NHL record with seven assists in a 10-6 triumph over the Chicago Black Hawks.

1961 Montreal s Bernie Geoffrion becomes the second player to score 50 goals in a season in a 5-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Maurice Richard was the first to do it, in 1945.

1990 Philip Hutcheson of David Lipscomb University hits a running 5-foot hook shot in the NAIA Tournament to become the all-time scoring champion of college basketball. The 6-foot-8 Hutcheson, who scored in double figures in every college game he played, breaks the record of 4,045 set in 1969-72 by Travis Grant of Kentucky State.

2001 A record number of low-seeded teams advance in the NCAA men s basketball tournament. Indiana State, Butler, Temple, Charlotte and Fresno State join 12th-seeded Gonzaga in advancing, meaning 13 of the tournament s 32 first-round games were won by underdogs.

2003 Svetlana Feofanova reclaims the pole vault world record from Stacy Dragila by clearing 15 feet, 9 inches at the World Indoor Championships at Birmingham, England. The Russian betters the mark of 15-81/4 that Dragila set at the U.S. Indoor Championships on March 2.

2005 Norway s Robert Sorlie wins his second Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in one of the closest races in years. Sorlie completes the 1,100-mile race across Alaska in nine days, 18 hours, 39 minutes and 31 seconds. He s still in the winner s circle when Ed Iten of Kotzebue crosses the line 34 minutes later.

2006 The U.S. squad loaded with All-Stars loses 2-1 to Mexico to be eliminated from the World Baseball Classic.
