dwarfs!

-- Via Blogger Nestor, a (temporarily broken link to a) piece on Ben Howland and Steve Lavin breaking bread while flying thousands of miles above Pauley Pavilion.

-- The Mountain West Conference is 11-32 against the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pacific-10, Southeastern and West Coast conferences, leading Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Joe Hawk to suggest only Utah is due a NCAA Tournament bid. Enjoy (I did) Hawk's well-developed metaphor about "Utah and the Seven Dwarfs" here.

-- Tickets for the Nov. 21-23 Maui Invitational are now on sale. Next year's event should be the best ever, with six of eight participants having recently won national championships. The Maui field will include Arizona (1997), Arkansas (1994), Connecticut (1999, 2004), Kansas (1952, 1988), Maryland (2002), Michigan State (1979, 2000), Gonzaga and host Chaminade.
