1. With Butler, VCU and Wichita State crashing the Final Four party in the last three years, it’s obvious Cinderella is alive and well in college basketball. Which of the following teams do you think has a chance to get to the Final Four next April?: (1) Creighton; (2) VCU; (3) Wichita State; (4) Gonzaga; (5) LaSalle; (6) Saint Louis; (7) Middle Tennessee. 2. Since UCLA’s streak of seven consecutive NCAA titles was broken by North Carolina State in 1974, only Duke (1991-92) and Florida (2006-07) have claimed back-to-back NCAA championships. Why is it so difficult to repeat? Is it early entry in the NBA? Is it parity? Or is the culprit the NCAA Tournament, which expanded to 64 teams in the 1980s? 3. North Carolina has already lost a huge amount of respect due to the football probation under Butch Davis. Now it appears basketball has been getting a boost from academic improprieties that include grade changing to bogus courses in the African-American Studies department. Does the NCAA have the guts to drop the hammer on one of basketball’s blue bloods?
