Gaels, top guard Mills reach NIT quarterfinals

MORAGA, Calif. – Patty Mills had 23 points and 10 assists while outdueling Stephen Curry in a matchup of guards, leading Saint Mary’s into the NIT quarterfinals with an 80-68 victory over Davidson on Monday night.

Curry had 26 points, nine rebounds and five assists in what might have been the national scoring leader’s final game for the Wildcats (27-8), but Mills overcame his awful 3-point shooting with effective passing and just enough of his usual daredevil drives to the hoop, preventing Davidson from rallying late.

Omar Samhan added 18 points and nine rebounds for the Gaels (28-6), who will play Wednesday night at San Diego State, with the winner getting a trip to Madison Square Garden next week for the NIT semifinals.

Kentucky 65, Creighton 63: In Omaha, Neb., Jodie Meeks converted a three-point play with 10.6 seconds left to lift the Wildcats.

Kentucky (22-13) advanced to a quarterfinal game at Notre Dame on Wednesday. Creighton, which came in off wins in 12 off its past 13 games, finished the season 27-8.

Kentucky played from behind most of the night, but the Wildcats were in position to win after Justin Carter missed two free throws with 36.4 seconds left. Meeks finished with 16 points.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
