I want my baby back, baby back, baby back...

-- Joe Bendel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review writes up Carl Krauser's inspirational story. Here's hoping Krauser makes an NBA Roster. The year after next. An unnamed NBA scout suggested to Bendel that Krauser declare early at season's end, compete in pre-draft camps, and return to school. The Pittsburgh guard is not among most mock drafts' first (or even second) rounds.

-- Maryland center Ekene Ibekwe has been experiencing pain from a cracked rib for almost two months. If Ibekwe's health continues to falter, don't expect much from the Terps come March.

-- Without Pierre Pierce -- who now has six criminal charges to go along with his six-pack -- Randy Petersen of the Des Moines (IA) Register finds Steve Alford's Hawkeyes fading fast. Had Pierce last night suited up for Iowa, the Hawkeyes would likely have turned back Wisconsin's rally. As it was, Jeff Horner & Co. lost to the Badgers, missing an opportunity to notch a huge road win.

-- Michael Vega of the Boston Globe finds the Boston College Eagles trying (without much success) to keep a positive attitude.
