★ After you finish the Summitt piece, this New York Times profile of Lenny Cooke is cautionary tale, defined. You also should read that.

★ Bill Self's run at Kansas the past six years is on the verge of being historic. These numbers are incredible.

★ Stayin on Kansas, the Tyshawn Taylor coverage this year has been really great to read.

★ Jason King compiles a mammoth end-of-year awards piece. This may take awhile to get through.

★ Fantastic, giddy, high-pitched play-by-play call of a high school hoops game ending.

★ Please, please get more of these things at NCAA tournament sites.

★ Learn something new every day. Do you know the last location of the Big East tournament before MSG?

★ Why and how Duke's defense is inevitably going to be responsible for the team's downfall.

★ Read up on Drexel only making its second CAA final.

★ How BYU challenges are assumptions about who they are and how white they are.

★ Big East fan bases as Simpsons characters.

★ New Arizona State football coach was in the student section yesterday. No, no body paint.
