-- Connecticut secured a much-needed win against a ranked opponent last night, downing Villanova. Adam Caparell of the University of Connecticut's Daily Campus, however, writes up Calhoun's possible move to Los Angeles. Marc Stein of the WWLIS had reported the Lakers were interested in Calhoun. But methinks that Jim is happy to finish his career in Storrs.

-- Penn State coach Ed DeChellis pulled a Freddie Mitchell, forgetting the name of the Indiana walk-on who nailed a crucial three-pointer against the Nittany Lions. If Ryan Tapak keeps making big shots, he could make it a race between himself and Christian Moody for walk-on player of the year.

-- Only Coach K could make Lee Melchionni an effective major-conference player.

-- The Nevada-Iowa Journal gets letters! College basketball fans should be "spectators, not combatants."

-- Jeffrey Flanagan of the Kansas City Star notes that if Quin Snyder's Tigers falter, Missouri could join Washington State, Central Michigan, San Diego State, East Carolina, Tulane and New Mexico State as one of seven schools to have losing records in all three of their "revenue-generating sports."
