zoning laws

-- More from the "I can't believe Mike Krzyzewski is having success with a lineup of five All-Americans" meme. Had he not been accused of rape senior year, Shelden Williams would also have been honored by Mcdonalds. Giving the Blue Devils six All-Americans, one less than the rest of the ACC combined.

-- The key to slowing John Lucas? Zone Oklahoma State. Or so says a good friend of mine after examining Lucas's game-by-game performance. Baylor, Oklahoma, Syracuse and Texas all but shut down OSU's point guard while playing zone defense.

-- Andy Katz, Pat Forde and Fran Fraschilla are up with their five favorite places to watch a game. I'm shocked Assembly Hall made only Forde's list.

-- Sports Illustrated's Seth Davis gives some love to St. John's Daryll Hill. A big part of Norm's success at SJU to date. More significantly, the man who this year predicted Steve Alford would next season coach Indiana has identified Marquette's weakness. Tom Crean's club gave up 19 offensive rebounds to DePaul and 18 to Charlotte. And lost both games. More from Seth here, including the latest on Nolan Richardson's campaign for a head coaching gig.

-- Mark Schlabach of the Washington Post does some investigative reporting and learns Mike Davis is feeling the heat at Indiana. Sadly, fan heckling has gotten so bad that Davis is considering telling his wife, Tamilya, and son to stay away from Assembly Hall. But not for long, if Rick Alonzo has it right. The Minnesota beat writer and St. Paul (MN) Pioneer Press staff writer argues the Hoosiers have hit their stride after winning seven of their last eight. Will it be enough to vault Davis' club into the NCAA Tournament? Only if Bracey Wright and D.J. White continue to shine.
