There is the incredible length on the front line with 6-7 Deng Adel, 6-10 Ray Spalding and 7-footer Anas Mahmoud.

If you listen to the college basketball talking heads, MI basketball is one of the hottest teams in the country right now.

The Michigan State baseball team spent its spring break last week in SC, playing six games against five teams in the main stretch of its nonconference schedule.

Led by Mangok Mathiang and Anas Mahmoud down low-who combine for 10.1 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game-Louisville is second in the ACC with 39.7 rebounds per game and 27th nationally with a 5.8 rebounding margin. The Cardinals are No. 6 in defensive efficiency according to KenPom.com. Miami, the No. 8 seed, played Louisville in a tightly contested game at the KFC YUM! The Rams actually started the season with a national ranking, but got untracked by injuries.

9 - Deficits won't scare them - Trailing by eight points or more 12 times during the regular season, the Jayhawks finished 11-1 in those games, including a 7-0 mark after December 29 in games in which they trailed by double figures yet still won. As can the team's defense. Every year there is a team that people point to and say, "They should not even be in". Louisville is familiar with teams who can light it up offensively.

This might be the second-most hard region with Kansas (No. 1), Louisville (No. 2), Oregon (No. 3), and Purdue (No. 4).

Despite their 63-58 loss to the Minnesota Golden Gophers during the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament, the Michigan State Spartans were going to be a team headed to the NCAA Tournament.

- Florida, fourth in the East Region, may be seeded too high.

IN unemployment rate remains steady at 4 percent

Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president VM Sudheeran resigned on certain health grounds on Friday. He had a tumultuous tenure as KPCC president with both the Congress (I) and Congress (A) opposing him.

But unless and until the city has a domed stadium, or the NCAA relents on its trend since 1996 of awarding Final Fours only to cities with such accommodations, those days are over.

8 - Jayhawks know how to win close games - Ten times during the regular season, the Jayhawks played games decided by six points or fewer and came out on top.

Kansas G Frank Mason III: It only seems like Mason has been a Jayhawk for about 10 years, but in reality, he is just a senior.

Despite entering the national tournament riding a three-game losing streak, by a combined 17 points, the Cowboys have enjoyed a great deal of stability since January 21. He is symbolic of the Cyclones' execution style of play. Bucknell averages only 13 turnovers per game and is very careful with the basketball. The Golden Gophers are your prototypical Big Ten team with some size and girth and decent guard play. During this stretch of games, the Wolverines also avenge their loss to IL, wearing blue jerseys at home in response to Morgan's comments.

Kansas has been a team I have been against for most of the season.

Johnathan Motley, Baylor: The Bears' big man is averaging 17.3 points and 9.9 rebounds but is coming off a disclocated finger. Game time has not yet been set.

And Tulsa is the only other place Izzo has coached college basketball - for about seven weeks in 1986, before Jud Heathcote brought him back to MSU to be a full-time assistant coach. He was going from Indian Hills CC to Arizona State when he was arrested for theft and had his scholarship offer pulled.

So the next-best thing is to play host to a regional, which hasn't happened here since 1995 - a streak that will come to a compelling end March 23-25 when the Sprint Center welcomes the Midwest Regional.
