40 feet of hell

-- Ladies beware. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Wendell Barnhouse has a way with words.

Sunrises and sunsets are automatic.

J.J. Redick isn't a force of nature. But, when he's standing at a free-throw line, he is to college basketball shooters what Pavarotti is to tenors.

-- Our good friend Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette has the latest news from the Horizon League. Following a loss to first-place University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Illinois-Chicago coach Jimmy Collins told a reporter he didn't believe any conference team, including the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, could catch UWM and win the conference title. The statement elicited a not so favorable response from UWGB coach Tod Kowalczyk. More on the controversy -- and a history lesson on the less than friendly relationship between Collins and UWM coach Bruce Pearl -- here.

-- Leads made easy, courtesy of Alabama's recent drubbing at the hands of Florida.

-- Did he or didn't he? Seeking to end the confusion, Missouri Athletic Director Mike Alden confirmed that he did not consult with school President Elson Floyd or the UM Board of Curators before announcing that embattled basketball Coach Quin Snyder would return next season.

-- Jeff Wirick of the Freedom "isn't free" News Service reminds us it has been more than 10 years since Duke's Jeff Capel nailed a 40-foot buzzer-beater to send the Blue Devils' game against North Carolina into a second overtime. Who else is looking forward to tomorrow's game?
