Florida (24-3, 11-1) had won 17 straight games and needed a victory to clinch at least a share of the Southeastern Conference’s Eastern Division and the overall league title. They also had won seven straight against the Commodores. But Vanderbilt (18-8, 8-4) has been one of the country’s best against ranked opponents this season. Students poured onto the court at Memorial Gym as the Commodores pulled off their first victory over a top-ranked team since Jan. 13, 1993, when they beat then-No. 1 Kentucky, and their sixth victory over a ranked team this season. Ross Neltner added 15 points for the Commodores. Joakim Noah led Florida with 15, and Corey Brewer and Al Horford each had 13 as the Gators had a season-high 22 turnovers. At No. 3 Wisconsin 75, Penn St. 49: Alando Tucker shook off a slow start and scored 22 points to lead Wisconsin to the win.

Some 88,000 people will be charged with supervising Sunday’s runoff election in which Ticos will choose Costa Rica’s next president for 2014-2018.That figure represents an increase of 4,000 people compared to the first-round Feb. 2 election, Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE) President Luis Antonio Sobrado said on Friday.Most are voluntary staff in charge of monitoring polling stations, following accusations of ballot theft by a security officer last month.Sunday’s vote also will be monitored by 180 national observers from nongovernmental organizations, universities and other local groups, as well as 102 international observers from 14 countries.Josefina Vásquez Mota, a member of the Organization of American States and head of the international observers group, said she is satisfied with the security measures adopted by the TSE, as well as the tribunal’s efforts to implement OAS recommendations following February’s vote.The first recommendation addresses the transparency of polls released during the first-round campaign, which prompted the TSE to order polling companies to fully disclose survey methodology. That information is available on the TSE’s website.Observers also recommended legal amendments that would facilitate gender parity in access to public posts, which already is being considered by a bill in the Legislative Assembly.Vásquez added that observers praised the level of citizen participation in Costa Rica on Election Day, “including children who helped people find polling centers.”The TSE’s new security measures include better ballots, details of which “are kept secret,” Sobrado said.Some changes are noticeable, including a hole in the center of the ballot that is cropped in a certain pattern. Ballots also display a security pattern printed irregularly on either the top or bottom according to provisions known only by TSE officials.A total of 3,078,321 Ticos, including more than 12,000 Costa Ricans registered to vote from abroad, will choose Sunday between Citizen Action Party candidate Luis Guillermo Solís and ruling National Liberation Party candidate Johnny Araya. Araya in March opted to stop campaigning, but will be on the ballot.The first preliminary results will be announced by the TSE at 8 p.m. on April 6.

Just takes one performance to get us going back in the right direction and believing we can make a run.”The Cardinals will try to stop Green Bay’s run. The NFC Divisional Round matchup kicks off at 6:15 p.m. Saturday evening. The game can be heard on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo For a brief moment on Sunday, it appeared that the Arizona Cardinals would be facing the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Divisional round.All the Vikings needed was for kicker Blair Walsh to hit a 27-yard field goal with 22 seconds remaining and Minnesota would’ve escaped the frigid below-zero temperatures of Minneapolis and head to a warmer place for their next playoff game.Instead, Walsh’s chip shot hooked left, ending the Vikings’ season. A few hours later, the Cardinals found out who they’d be hosting at University of Phoenix Stadium.
