dave odom, you so fine, you so fine you blow

-- Jay (son of Charlie) Spoonhour gets the Steve Carp treatment in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. An informative read. Though I think a coach with Jay's experience and pedigree could and should have done better than a gig as a student manager for Quin Snyder!

-- The (SC) State's Ron Morris pens a column complimenting South Carolina's Dave Odom for employing a unique bench-seating arrangement wherein assistant coaches Barry Sanderson, Rick Duckett and Ricky Stokes sit in the middle of the players during games. USC's forwards and centers sit between Odom and Sanderson on one end, and the Gamecocks' guards sit between Stokes and the far end. Duckett sits between Sanderson and Stokes and monitors USC's play on defense. Makes sense, except I imagine Odom would be interested in occasionally talking to his guards as well.

-- Sign me up.

-- On "Big Monday," Connecticut defeated Syracuse and Oklahoma State beat Oklahoma. You saw both games and so I'll spare you the commentary.

-- Jeff Zrebic of the Baltimore Sun argues Maryland (RPI: 23) is all but a lock for the NCAA Tournament. As long as the Terps go 4-3 in their final seven games, they should go dancing.
