Who's Tommy?

-- The Associated Press' Jim Vertuno reminds us that only a month ago, the Texas Longhorns were ranked in the Top 10 and were the Final Four flavor of the week. But after the loss of P.J. Tucker and LaMarcus Aldridge, the Longhorns may not make the NCAA Tournament. (And why should they? Who of any quality have they beaten lately?)

-- The AP preview of the best game you're sure to miss, Pacific at Utah State. How can you root against an ocean?

-- Detroit (MI) Free Press columnist Michael Rosenberg suggests Michigan's Tommy Amaker is a tough read, on and off the court. A private man, Amaker is difficult (for beat writers and pundits) to befriend. A public coach whose team has suffered several unexpected setbacks in this, their would-be breakout season, Tommy is likewise difficult (for beat writers and pundits) to judge.

-- Tickets for the Pac 10 Tournament are on sale now. As I've noted before, I believe this year's tournament will enable an additional conference team or two to play its way into the NCAA Tournament.
