Leon Douglas is once again coming up big in the NCAA tournament.
   
Nearly four decades after posting two of the University of Alabama's best postseason performances, Douglas has led eighth-seeded Tuskegee into the Division II quarterfinals Wednesday against Metro State in Evansville, Ind.
   
The Tigers pulled off three straight upsets to win the South Region while the other seven No. 8 seeds fell in the first round. Like at Alabama, Douglas is doing it at a school better known for football.
   
He even drew a chuckle at his job interview from a skeptical administrator when he listed competing for an NCAA title as one of his goals eight years ago.
   
As Tide teammate Wendell Hudson pointed out to Douglas recently: "Now you've got another chance on that stage."
