ESTERO, Fla. -- A sizable contingent of Ohio State fans came to the Gulf Coast Showcase in southwest Florida, where the weather happens to be just a bit nicer than back home.Those fans will be free to watch a certain football game Saturday afternoon.Kelsey Mitchell scored 10 of her game-high 25 points in the fourth quarter, and No. 8 Ohio State used a late 11-0 run to pull away and beat Florida Gulf Coast 79-66 on Friday in the tournament quarterfinals. The win means the Buckeyes (4-1) play on Saturday night -- instead of playing a consolation matchup in the afternoon, which would have been during the Michigan-Ohio State showdown back in Columbus.Ive been at Ohio State three years and I never got a chance to experience `The Game, Mitchell said. Hopefully we can give back, watch them, cheer them on.Mitchell got better as the game went on, still having a big night despite not getting her first basket until the second quarter. She had 19 of her 25 points after halftime.Shes going to be the first pick, FGCU coach Karl Smesko said. Whenever she comes out shell be the first pick in the WNBA draft. Shes that good.Shayla Cooper finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds for the Buckeyes. Stephanie Mavunga added 13 points and 12 rebounds for Ohio State.I thought it was a great challenge for our team, Ohio State coach Kevin McGuff said.Taylor Gradinjan and Nasrin Ulel each scored 13 for Florida Gulf Coast (2-3), which trailed by one at halftime and was still within five points early in the fourth.The Eagles -- who are playing this weekend about two miles from their campus -- were 12 for 37 from 3-point range and 8 for 30 from inside the arc.Im a little bit mixed emotions right now, Smesko said. Im disappointed because we didnt work as well together as I thought we should of. But then at the same time I saw us do some things well and move in a positive direction.Mitchell had five of the 11 points in the decisive run for Ohio State, starting it with a layup and adding a 3-pointer. The Buckeyes held a 52-31 rebounding edge, 25-11 in that department after halftime.Ohio State led by as many as 12 in the third, but Ulel -- who logged six scoreless minutes in her lone collegiate appearance entering Friday -- made three 3s in the final 2:30 of the quarter, and FGCU was within 54-48 headed to the fourth.Knowing we were in Florida, playing a team like Florida Gulf Coast, we could never get comfortable, Mitchell said.BIG PICTUREFGCU: Gradinjan left the court briefly in the first half while getting her left leg bandaged. She also had to be taken out early in the fourth quarter, favoring the leg slightly. ... The Eagles need only look at last season when figuring out how to overcome a slow start. They were 1-2 last year and finished 33-6.Ohio State: Mitchell is now the Buckeyes career leader in 3-pointers made, getting No. 271 to fall late in the third quarter. She passed Caity Matter, who made 270 from 2001-05. Mitchell didnt know she was even nearing the record. Aw, thanks, she said. ... Even though they trailed for only 1:18, the Buckeyes were tested -- there were six ties and six lead changes.HOMECOMINGS, SORT OFThis weekend is taking Smesko back to his roots. Hes a native of Ohio, and theres a chance he could face his alma mater -- Kent State -- when the three-team, eight-team tournament wraps up on Sunday.UP NEXTFGCU: Either No. 11 Syracuse or George Washington on Saturday.Ohio State: Either No. 11 Syracuse or George Washington on Saturday.

IRVING, Texas -- Bill Callahan is replacing coach Jason Garrett as the play-caller for the Dallas Cowboys. So said owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday. Even Callahan himself confirmed it. All of which served only to get Garrett to dig in a little deeper in his refusal to publicly acknowledge a change in the role hes had since Jones hired him as offensive co-ordinator in 2007. "There is no real advantage for us to reveal whos calling the plays explicitly, and how were going to do it, in early June," Garrett said. "Its just the way I feel about it. We have a plan in place. Weve had a plan in place for a long, long time. I dont want to get into that plan much further than I already have." Garrett kept play-calling duties when he replaced head coach Wade Phillips halfway through the 2010 season. Jones wanted Phillips to be the defensive play-caller when he hired him, and he wanted the same for Garrett on the offensive side. But Jones dropped the first hint during Senior Bowl practices in January that a change was in the works. He even specifically mentioned Callahan, who called plays for the Oakland Raiders as offensive co-ordinator and head coach from 1998 to 2003. Callahan, who is offensive co-ordinator and offensive line coach, has consistently deferred to Garrett when the topic came up this off-season, but finally relented when told that Jones had said the decision to let Callahan call plays was made weeks ago. Callahan looked to be the one calling plays during off-season workouts, and Jones said anyone "looking at practice ... can get a pretty good idea of how its going there." "Its a real honour and a great responsibility," Callahan said.dddddddddddd"Im flattered to be part of this and take on the additional responsibilities of calling the plays in the course of the game." Garrett has faced the question of whether he would give up play-calling duties because of poor game management decisions in several losses the past two seasons. The Cowboys finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs both times. Callahans offence had a rough season in his debut with the Raiders, but finished no worse than eighth in points and yards per attempt each of the next four years. Callahan also spent four years as head coach at Nebraska. "I think hes an outstanding coach with the kind of experience that I really think is good for us right now," Jones said. "The fact that he has been head coach, college, as well as in the NFL, you bring all of that to bear." Garrett said his refusal to announce the change had nothing to do with whether he agreed with it. "Im completely on board with all decisions we make," Garrett said. "We make collective decisions in this organization. We always have and we always will." While playfully acknowledging that he wasnt thrilled with his owner revealing the play-calling decision, Garrett said his relationship with Jones has never been better. "Hes an outstanding owner because he cares a great deal about this football team and making the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys great," Garrett said. "When youre in an environment like that, working for a guy like that, the pedal is down and thats a good thing. The pedal is down for all of us."
