Our area’s three major Division One basketball programs are still dancing in the Sweet 16. Sweet, indeed. UK shows no signs of slowing down their sprint to the National Championship. It also appears that Super Frosh, Anthony Davis will be the runaway National Player of the Year.

Indiana University once again is in the elite category of college hoops. Tom Crean was a serious contender for Coach of the Year.
