stays in vegas

-- The State of Pennsylvania's Department of General Services is focusing on cost overruns and a leaky roof in it's suit against the architects responsible for designing the Petersen Events Center. Conceived years ago as a $35 million project, the arena ballooned into a $119 million affair. About a year old, Petersen's roof already has more than 200 holes.

-- The Albuquerque (NM) Tribune's Jeff Carlton, himself a blogger, finds a few less than happy Lobos fans on Internet message boards. What a difference Danny Granger's absence made.

-- Sin City, indeed. Lois Tarkanian, the wife of former UNLV basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, won a Las Vegas City Council seat in a special election. Councilors better bring a few extra towels to council meetings. Munchie, munchie.

-- Wendell Barnhouse of the Forth Worth (TX) Star-Telegram profiles North Carolina's Jawad Williams, for my money the most under-appreciated player on a Top 25 squad.

-- Jerry Brown of the East Valley (AZ) Tribune states the obvious: the Arizona State Sun Devils badly need to win tonight's game against Washington State.
