SINCE WE DON'T HAVE TO LISTEN TO BILLY PACKER, EVERYONE WINS: Our annual tournament pool concludes tonight. If UNC wins, Finch J. Bowman wins; if the Spartans triumph it's the "cg" entry by "B. Hurley".

Toss-up question: best men's college basketball team you've seen in the last twenty years? Without looking at any numbers at all, I'm just going to say the Larry Johnson-Stacey Augmon UNLV Runnin' Rebels of the early 1990s, whose athleticism and swarming defense were stunning; the runner-up would probably be Pitino's 1996 Kentucky championship team, which was just ridiculously deep -- Antoine Walker, Tony Delk, Walter McCarty, Derek Anderson and Ron Mercer (and others) all moving on to the NBA. As much as I like this UNC team, they're nowhere near as dominating as what we grew up seeing.
