    Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua (CHAWM-wuh CHAT-chew-wuh) sees himself as a walking miracle after getting back on the court for 14th-ranked Baylor nearly a full year after a gruesome left knee injury. He is a testament to an unwavering spiritual faith and hard work. The 6-foot-8 forward from Cameroon with the nickname "Everyday Jon" went 51 weeks between tearing multiple ligaments in his left knee last Feb. 12 to returning for the Bears last Saturday. Coach Scott Drew says God blessed the big forward by allowing him to recover. Many people thought he'd never play again.

      Lance Guidry went from defensive coordinator at Marshall to Tulane to Miami in a span of 2½ weeks.

      The Hurricanes lured Guidry away from Tulane on Tuesday, multiple outlets reported, to fill their DC vacancy.

        Unbeaten in SEC play, coach Nate Oats' Crimson Tide (20-3, 10-0 SEC) will host the Florida Gators on Wednesday night in Tuscaloosa in the only regular-season matchup between the rivals.

        Baylor coach Scott Drew didn't expect Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua to return this season.

        But Tchamwa Tchatchoua figures to be a significant late-season addition for the No. 14 Bears after making his season debut in Baylor's Saturday win over Texas Tech.

        Norchad Omier had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Jordan Miller added 16 points and Miami had little trouble on the way to a 81-59 win over Duke on Monday night. Gradey Dick scored 21 points, Dajuan Harris Jr. had 17 points, six rebounds and five assists, and Kansas held on after blowing a 14-point first-half lead to beat Texas 88-80 in Lawrence, Kansas.

        While Wake Forest has pulled it together after a rough patch, North Carolina will try to reverse a trend after a disappointing week.

        The teams will meet Tuesday night in a rematch from last month, with each team in desperate need of success at Winston-Salem, N.C.
