★ If you completely dodged CBSSports.com last night, Goodman and Parrish had a pretty important story.
★ It was a great night for Robbie Hummel.
★ Your title-winner odds in Vegas as of today.
★ Kendall Marshall, Marquis Teague, Jordan Taylor and Tyshawn Taylor. How do they compare when it comes to turning the ball over in specific situations?
★ There is now a site that shows you how every team played against/measured up to every other team.
★ The latest ripple in the Bernie Fine story that you didn't realize was happening because that story doesn't much matter anymore -- or right now.
★ I respect this take by Deadspin, responding to the Sports Illustrated UCLA story.
★ Bill Plaschke took time to address Howland's job status.
★ Dan Guerrero, AD at UCLA, did not say Ben Howland will definitely return to UCLA next year. (But he will.)
★ As suspected, Kyle Anderson isn't waffling on his commitment to UCLA.
★ More on New Orleans prep for the Final Four.
★ Tyler Zeller's a great kid who's done a fabulous job in four years. Crazy to think he was a freshman on that '09 title team.
★ Washington State already resigning itself to the CBI. It's so sad, like seeing the guy settle for the last chick in the bar at 2 a.m.
★ Not helpful to Drexel, but I wonder if the committee really takes it to heart: Derrick Thomas, a junior who averages eight points per game, is not eligible for the CAA tournament. The reason why is alarming.
★ March, you are so beautiful. Here's a list of every team that's never made it to the best stage in sports.
★ Must-read interview links with the commissioner of the MAAC.
► Goodman threatened my job if I didn't put this video up. It's the ultimate tribute to Hummel.
