Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
ATLANTA (AP) — The guys from Division II have next.
And Drury will be playing for its first Division II national championship when the Panthers play Metro State in Sunday’s final.
Drury carries a 22-game winning streak into the final. The game is being played at Philips Arena, which sits near the Georgia Dome, home of the Final Four. The Division II follows the Division III championship game; Amherst beat Mary Hardin-Baylor 87-70 to win that title.
Drury, from Springfield, Mo., is sending five busloads of students to Atlanta.
Metro State is no newcomer to the national championship scene. The school from Denver won national titles in 2000 and 2002 under Mike Dunlap, now the Charlotte Bobcats’ coach. Metro State now is coached by Derrick Clark, who was an assistant on Dunlap’s staff.

The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
