riverdance?

-- The AP's Aaron Beard pens a fluff piece on Matt Doherty's desire to return to coaching. But will Beard be so complimentary when Nolan Richardson comes calling? Why, I ask, write about one and not the other?

-- I'm not surprised these haven't gone like hotcakes. Would I want see Baylor-Missouri? No.

-- Who but Tom Noie of the South Bend (IN) Tribune's Tom would offer the Fighting Irish a blueprint on how to play their way into the NCAA Tournament? Noie's suggestions? Win every home game, continue feeding Torin Francis, embrace the leadership of Chris Thomas, steal one on the road and keep hope alive.

-- MSM Watch: Seth Davis is up with his weekend picks, Andy Katz interviews six upperclassman who returned to school and suggests the balance were wise to have come back, and Jay Bilas lauds Syracuse for efficiently and effectively working Billy Edelin into the rotation. I had patiently waited for the latter two columns for weeks. And now that Andy let the cat out of the bag, except to see numerous beat writers run with a "despite tough season, he should have stayed" storyline.
