UCLA became the first team to clinch a berth in the 2008 NCAA Division I Men's Tournament when it won the Pac-10 title Sunday a 2-0 win over Stanford.

Senior Maxwell Griffin scored both goals for the Bruins, who recorded their sixth consecutive shutout. They are unbeaten in six straight games and in 12 of their last 13 games.

-- Senior Andrei Gotsmanov scored two goals to lead Creighton past Drake, 2-0, before 2,882 fans and take over first place in the Missouri Valley at 3-0-1. The Bluejays will look to claim its third straight regular-season MVC title next Saturday, when they travel to Eastern Illinois.

-- No. 5 St. John's won the Big East Red Division with a 2-0 over Cincinnati. A goal by freshman Brendan King in the 61st minute was all the Notre Dame would need in a 1-0 win over West Virginia that gave the Irish the Blue Division championship.
