OXFORD, Ohio - With Kent State leading Miami 56-54 with 4:21 left in the game, Miami's Tyler Dierkers had the ball just outside the lane. He jumped up and shot the ball, it left his hand, kissed the glass and went through the net.
The game was now tied at 56-56 and it was just another clutch shot that Dierkers makes during a typical game. Sunday night, Dierkers finished a double-double with a solid 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Miami won this game 68-63 behind Michael Bramos' 34 points and the contributions by Dierkers.

Before getting into a preview of the games on tap for Tuesday and Wednesday, there may be an important development in the BCS. Not who plays in it but which network televises the games. ESPN, according to may sources, is on the verge of acquiring the rights to the BCS from 2011-2014 with Fox unlikely to match their offer. If you're like me, you scratched your head the past few years and wondered why a network that devotes little time to college football during the regular season gets to show the season's biggest games.
