It was a big night for NBA action, but the most meaningful games were in the college ranks. We'll hit them up in a few. Our congrats go out to Michael Finley for being just the 238th player in League history to drop 10,000 career points. The magical Mav had 13 points last night as Dallas completed a four-game season sweep of the lowly Grizz. To add even more embarrassment to an absolutely horrendous squad, J-Will got booted in the third quarter after picking up his second T.

How good are the Spurs? Timmy Double-Double added another one to his impressive collection. He has now been double-dipping in a League-best 55 games this year. But the bigger news was San Antonio picking up its 12th straight win by spanking the Heat. After a huge midseason slump, the Spurs are finding their stride just in time to scare the bejesus out of Western Conference contenders. Their seems to be a particular deadly bite from the hated injury bug infecting the L's top players. The latest victim is Nugs' guard Tim Hardaway, who undoubtedly played his last game for the squad after breaking his foot in the first quarter last night. Tim, if you choose not to come back, you and your UTEP Two-Step will be sorely missed. Michael Olowokandi was fired up after the Clips lost a close one to a struggling Phoenix squad. The Kandi man spoke about his lack of burn in a competitive fourth quarter, "There's nothing I can do in three minutes. I don't know who the genius is who decided that. I was in a position where I could help the ballclub in crunch time." Maybe that genius is your coach's polite way of saying that the "project" has failed thus far. Anyone else feel that Allen Iverson won't let a broken knuckle keep him out one week, much less 4-6 weeks? We also feel that if Vinsanity were in the same situation he would be out until July. Give it up for Mike Davis' Hoosiers. Indiana exacted its revenge on Cinderella State after the Golden Flashes beat them in the first round last year. Indiana lit it up like Generel Electric from beyond the arc, going bonkers with a ridiculous 78.9 percent clip on 15-19 shooting. The 15 trifectas was a school record and the fifth highest ever in a game at the Dance. Hoosier daddy indeed. In the other regional Elite Eight match-up, Mizzou gave it the old college try but the Sooners were too much for this record-setting team to handle. Hollis Price was money all game long and kept hitting clutch buckets at key moments of the game. The Tigers' senior leader and top scorer in the tournament, Clarence Gilbert, was atrocious with a 1-16 shooting display, including eight missed deep balls. Even though they eventually went down, Quin's bunch made it a game and refused to roll over to despite clearly being overmatched by Oklahoma's talent. We're out like the Cinderella squads.
