While Millsap's peek-a-Bron D paid off at times, James still torched the Hawks for 31 points in a 97--89 win that stole home court advantage for Cleveland, which jumped out to a 3--0 series lead.

Juan Pablo Montoya (number 2, fifth row), who began in 15th position, was rear-ended during the caution period after a first-lap crash. Dropping to 30th in the 33-car field, he rallied to win the Borg-Warner Trophy for the second time (inset).

The Pioneers went on to win 10--5, becoming the first school from a state not on the Atlantic seaboard to take the title. Bill Tierney, who won six championships in 22 seasons as coach at Princeton, took over the Pioneers in 2010. Denver is one of only three Division I programs (with Marquette and Air Force) outside the Eastern time zone.
