an unlucky number?

-- Dan Raley of the Seattle (WA) Post-Intelligencer notes that the Pac 10 isn't getting any older. Last season, 13 of 50 starters were seniors. This year, 13 of 50 starters (again) are seniors. Raley also gets Lorenzo Romar on record as all but assuring Nate Robinson will skip his senior year and enter the NBA Draft. Sigh.

-- Reader C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Post speaks to Memphis coach John Calipari about the mass exodus from Conference USA to the Big East. Who knew Cal had a few years back advocated CUSA invite several Big East squads to join Memphis' conference?

-- Brian Koonz of the Danbury (CT) News-Times recaps Connecticut's luckier than all hell victory over Providence. Who knew the Friars would choke at the end of both regulation and the first overtime? Even as Tim Welsh's stock dropped, however, Ryan Gomes' rose. It is hard to pin either the loss or the Friars' troubles on Gomes, a stud who last night scored 37 points. (After yesterday's game, I've revised my opinion of Ryan).

-- The Gainesville (FL) Sun's Kevin Brockway finds the gang that doesn't like to pass preparing for a game against Alabama. Florida's resurgence has been among the least-reported stories of the 2004-2005 season.
