A lot out there today that may be of interest:
--- You can find all of our coverage of the tournament here including a column by Steve Kelley on the Davidson win and a story on the Cougars. I'll also spotlight this look at how local players have fared in the tournament.
--- Lots of post-mortems out there on the Pac-10 teams now done:
Greg Hansen writes that this was one of the most dysfunctional Arizona teams ever;
Oregon will have to deal with the end of the Malik Hairston-Maarty Leunen-Bryce Taylor era and start over;
And Oregonian columnist John Canzano says Mark Few should be the coach to lead the Ducks into that new era;
USC is in complete uncertainty unsure who is staying and who is going. For what it's worth, word at the Pac-10 tourney was O.J. Mayo and Davon Jefferson gone (Jefferson apparently not liking school all that much) but Taj Gibson likely back;
--- Valparaiso (remember them?) plays at Houston tonight. Here's a short preview of that game that mentions the Crusaders feeling they matched up well with teams like the Huskies that are "bigger, more physical'' but not quick teams like Houston. Says something about how opponents view UW, obviously. The Huskies also figure they'll be closer to their normal selves in the quickness department next season.
--- Tulsa hosts Utah tonight in another CBI game fresh off having drawn the largest crowd of the tournament, 5,365.
--- Cal plays at Ohio State in an interesting NIT game tonight that is also a rematch of the 1960 NCAA final.
--- You can find the results of the first weekend of the ESPN Challenge here and it's pretty competitive at the top.
--- Speaking of ESPN.com, Andy Katz has a good wrapup of the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament though some of you may take issue with his description of the "greater Spokane-Pullman metropolitan area.''
All for now.

Great roundup Bob. I am starting to believe that next year UW will make a significant move in the standings. All three of the featured Pac-10 programs in your links would seem to be vulnerable in a big way, as would the Cougs. I LOL'ed at that "Spokane-Pullman metro area" wonder how the Cougs felt about that one.

Dave: I laughed as well! I kind of like to refer to it as the Colfax-Pullman Metro area, but if they want to include Spakane, they can.

Last night I was reading the most recent issue of 'Columns' and in it is this article on B-Roy.
It serves as a good reminder to everyone to lay off Isiaih Thomas on this qualifying issue. Even B-Roy barely made it.

I mean Isaiah. Good grief. I always get that wrong. Good think I don't need to qualify.

"Casual coug fan who looks for approval from other opposing fans". ....you have to admit, that was actually pretty good.

Hey "medina tyee"...
It's so obvious that:
1) you are not a tyee,
2) you are not a Husky fan, and
3) you don't live in Medina/aren't wealthy like you to try to pretend
Just give up the act, okay? It's really dumb. You're not rich (not that it matters), you're not a Husky fan, and you're certainly not a Tyee. You're clearly a duck or a coug trying to pull off an act.
As obnoxious as cougfan, coug4life, Geno and company are, they at least have the nuts to admit they're not Husky fans.
So quit being an idiot and go away.
