Free at Last, Free at Last,

-- Thank God, Almighty, I'm Free at Last! Phillip Wilson of the Indianapolis Star reports that every single NCAA Tournament game will be available online for my viewing pleasure.

Through a multiyear agreement with CBS SportsLine.com and the NCAA, College Sports Television has secured exclusive video streaming rights for out-of-market games. "NCAA March Madness On Demand" will cost $19.95. A 50 percent discount is available through February 8th.

-- Brendan Lowe of the University of Maryland Student Newspaper explains how a Maryland fan tricked the Cameron Crazies into chanting about a Duke scandal involving a former crack cocaine dealer rather than criticizing Terrapin forward Nik Caner-Medley. Today's must-read.

-- Following last night's Arizona-Washington game, a duel the Wildcats won in large part by shooting 38 of 40 from the free throw line, Lute Olson suggested that "Despite what people might say in the Atlantic Coast Conference, you couldn't possibly see a better game than this one." SportsCenter producers begged to differ, using Georgia Tech's overtime victory over Wake Forest as the lead for the popular show. East Coast Sports Network: 1 Silver-Haired Fox: 0.

-- Jeff Shelman of ESPN.com and the Minneapolis Star Tribune, himself a blogger, has today's other must-read, a profile of Wichita State. The Shockers are one of four teams likely to play Nevada during "Bracket Buster" Saturday. The other three, according to ESPN's Andy Katz, are Bradley, Vermont, and Western Michigan. UTEP is set to play at Pacific.

-- Horizon League commissioner Jon LeCrone, one of three folks who'll determine "Braket Buster" matchups, may help both the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and UW-Milwaukee secure a TV gig, or so writes Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press Gazette.
