32 straight

-- Blaine Newnham remains employed by the Seattle Times (unlike many others) and pens a puff piece about the Washington Huskies' Tre Simmons. More than a role player and less than a star, Simmons is Romar's go-to shooter.

-- Bill Hass of the Greensboro (NC) News & Record writes a column about North Carolina State's RPI rating, a cool 113. In other words, it would be wise for the Wolfpack to today defeat Georgia Tech. Previewed here.

-- Mark Simon works as a researcher for ESPN's college basketball coverage. Then why are his "College Hoops Extra" columns "specials" to ESPN? Come to think of it, why are Dick Vitale's columns also "specials" to ESPN? Anyone? Bueller? Reemer?

-- Via a comment on ACC Hoops, the probability Wake Forest, a squad that shoots about 65% from the line, would make 32 consecutive free throws against North Carolina was 0.000103%.

-- Connecticut is considering an offer from Arizona for the two teams to play a game in Phoenix during the 2005-2006 season. The game could be the teams' second next season, as both are already confirmed for the Maui Invitational.
