THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS > SWIMMING

McBroom, a senior at Texas, set an NCAA record in the 1,000-yard freestyle with an 8:43.48 finish in a double-dual meet win over Southern Methodist and then No. 1 Arizona. (The previous record, 8:44.11, was set by Michigan's Chris Thompson in 2001.) A five-time All-America, McBroom took the NCAA 1,650-free title in 2011. He swam for the U.S. in the 1,500-meter free at the short-course world championships in Istanbul in December, then won that event at the Austin Grand Prix last month.

SHANTE EVANS

WEST CHESTER, PA. > BASKETBALL

Evans, a 6-foot senior forward at Hofstra, who at week's end led all active Division I players with 66 career double doubles, had 19 points and 11 rebounds in a 72--59 win over Georgia State to become the Pride's first player to surpass the 2,000-point mark. Evans, who played for Team USA at the 2011 Pan American Games, is on the Naismith Trophy watch list. Averaging 17.2 points and 11.5 boards through Sunday, she is Hofstra's alltime leading scorer and rebounder.

SHELDON HOWARD

ST. JOHNSVILLE, N.Y. > KARATE

Howard, 53, a retired New York City police captain and grandfather of four, earned four first-place trophies (in forms and weapons, both traditional and creative) in the black belt 50-and-up division at the American Karate Association Grand Nationals in Chicago. He won in forms and self-defense at the Long Island Winter Karate Open a week earlier. A 9/11 first responder, Howard took bronze in the 2011 World Police and Fire Games and was inducted into the U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame last year.
