Why do we love championship week so much? Because every day is better than the previous one. Yesterday was no exception. We'll explain in a bit, but first, fantastic NBA action. The writing on 's ankle tape said "Never Satisfied" but K-Mart should have been after his and his team's winning performance last night over the . Martin had 17 points, seven boards, four steals and played lockdown D on , limiting the All-Star to just 10 points on 3-15 shooting. 'Toine also turned the ball over six times. Not to toot our own horn, but we've been telling you about Martin's D all year long and we think it's safe to call him the game's best defensive forward. Usually known for breaking other ballers' ankles, got faked straight out of his shoes, literally, by of all people on a breakaway. Ball up. The Mavs-Sonics game was tight like 50 Cent's album. Dirk had 27 and 12 but it was Nick who played Van Excellently down the stretch, keeping the Mavs in it with bucket after bucket on his way to 26 for the night. Yet the 1-2 combo of and was too much to overcome. Allen poured in 29 while 'Shard dropped a 30 spot, including a driving, one-handed hammer right through the lane to ice the game with 30 seconds to go. In the final NBA game of the night, Phoenix took care of Sac-Town rather handily as Muhammad Ali sat courtside. C-Webb was an army of one, nearly triple-dipping with 22 points, 11 boards and nine dimes, but he was the lone bright spot for the . led the way to the W with a double-dip of 27 points and 11 boards. He capped the game by using his Matrix-like hops to nearly fly over poor Jimmy Jackson on his way to another rim-rattling finish. But the highlight of the night had to be the woman fan randomly flashing the camera, Girls Gone Wild style. Sweet. Speaking of 'Zona and things going wild, the No. 1 Arizona Wildcats were upset by last night in overtime in the Pac-10 tourney. Steve Lavin is doing an excellent job of clinging to his job by the tiniest of threads. Blame 's 2-20 (0-12 from the land of three) shooting debacle for the loss. Sniper was high-man for the Bruins with 26. Our ears still hurt from his postgame rendition of the song "Staying Alive." Since he must have known he wouldn't make it as a singer, we're still wondering why he didn't go through with his decision to bolt school two years ago when he was a guaranteed first-rounder. From the "Oops, I Crapped My Pants" Department, we bring you . It wasn't exactly C-Webb calling a T.O. he didn't have, but Pasco now has a special place in history. With his No. 11 seed team up 2, Pasco picked off a long-range inbounds pass with 3 seconds to go and instead of dribbling, passing or simply doing nothing, he raised his index finger and walked a few steps with the ball tucked under his arm. Traveling violation. Colorado gets the ball back, inbounds, banks home a trey and escapes with the W and a probable birth in the Big Dance. Unbelievable. ... We wouldn't hesitate to say that Xavier's is the most dominant big man in the country. No. 14 continued its historic losing ways in the Pac-10 Tourney, this time getting upset by unranked USC. All it means is more rest for The Cardinal for the real tourney. We're out like the Phoenix flasher's foreign objects.
