a living legend

-- Toledo Blade sports columnist John Harris says Illinois needs to win a national championship to cement a place in college basketball history.

-- Lori Shontz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch profiles a Wonder of the World, John Wooden, finding his pyramid influential beyond college basketball. Enjoy the anecdotes. My favorite is the one about Wooden inventing the mop.

-- Steve Sneddon of the Reno (NV) Gazette-Journal asks if Nevada Wolf Pack "fans" will jump off the bandwagon following a loss to Fresno State. Only if they're as big fans of "Tilt" as I am.

-- Washington defeated Arizona State, robbing the Sun Devils of a critical opportunity to secure a big win. Even as the Pac-10 remains in the RPI's upper echelon, this blogger begins to wonder who but Arizona and Washington will be dancing in March?

-- I heart Bud Withers of the Seattle Times. Via today's column, I learned that Creighton is 5-0 when it buses to games but only 1-3 when it flies. Of course, it is only natural that far-away road games pose more of a challenge to the Bluejays.
