-- Am I the only one who believes Providence should fire Tim Welsh? If he can't win with Ryan Gomes, how's Welsh going to lead the Friars to the NCAA Tournament without him?

-- New York Daily News columnist Dick Weiss finds the Boston College Eagles closing in on a Number 1 seed. His column also notes that St. John's signed big-time prospect Ricky Torres, quotes Virginia's Gary Forbes after the North Carolina game ("I've never lost like that before...Not even in a video game."), and projects NCAA seeds for 65 teams.

-- Former Duke forward Christian Ast this week sold his 1991-92 NCAA championship ring on EBay for $8,000.

-- Dick Jerardi of the Philadelphia News writes of a truth is stranger than fiction statistic. In upsetting Oklahoma, Iowa State did not make a single basket from beyond 10 feet. Woah.

-- Southern Illinois beat Evansville to avoid a three game losing streak. Fortunately, the Salukies remain a Top 20 RPI team and a likely bet for the NCAA Tournament.
