the wind beneath their wings

-- Reader Michael earlier reminded me that Dayton yesterday beat La Salle without shooting a single free throw. An impressive feat that, I imagine, occurs quite infrequently in college basketball. Cool, no?

-- Andrew Joyner of the Charlottesville (VA) Daily Progress writes-up the local mini-meme; Virginia is making an attempt to salvage its season. Well, don't say Pete Gillen didn't go down fighting. (Agggh! Last night's I dreamt the University of Massachusetts decided to replace Steve Lappas with Gillen...Can I get a v-chip for my dreams?)

-- In Atlanta, North Carolina State defeated Georgia Tech, leading one prominent pundit to ask if the Yellow Jackets are worthy of an NCAA Tournament bid.

-- Andy Katz of the WWLIS writes up Jared Dudley's progress in 2004-2005. Dudley's points, boards and intangibles are up from 2003-2004. And he, more than any other Eagle, is responsible for Boston College's success.

-- Jay Bilas of the Eastern Sports Programming Network doesn't understand folks' fascination with the Princeton offense. But his argument that too many teams run Pete Carril's scheme without the right personnel would be more persuasive if he gave an example or two.
