SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Not all snow delays are bad. To level the playing field in the NCAA tournament, teams are required to bus to regional sites within 300 miles of campus. Villanova didn't anticipate a seven-hour ride from Philadelphia to the Carrier Dome on Tuesday night, but a sneak preview eased the angst of an early spring storm and the slip and slide on the Northeast Expressway. Wildcats coach Jay Wright passed time by showing a coming HBO special detailing a landmark basketball upset, Villanova's win over Georgetown in the 1985 final.

If Jimmy Patsos' stomach is roiling at the thought of nine other Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference coaches taking aim at him, the Loyola basketball coach wears his tension well. "I'm happy to be the hunted," says a grinning Patsos, sitting on stage at a downtown charity event with a panel of famous coaches, including Gary Williams, his former boss at Maryland. "Coach Williams taught me that," Patsos continues. "He always said, 'I'd love to have all the problems that Duke and Carolina have.'" The concerns of a champion are new to Loyola basketball, which had floundered for the better part of two decades before Patsos took over in 2004.

Gary Williams is a private person. The Maryland coach is most comfortable in the world of gym shorts, bouncing basketballs and the sound of sneakers echoing around practice gyms. He considers himself not a sports celebrity, but a teacher. But, Thursday night, Williams, not ordinarily chatty, was happy to step out of character — perhaps even out of his comfort zone — to receive a gift. The treat for Williams was not only to be inducted into the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards' newly-created "Hall of Legends" in an evening ceremony at the Hippodrome , but to be reunited with about a dozen of his former players and to be acknowledged by coaching peers such as Villanova's Jay Wright, Temple's Fran Dunphy, Minnesota's Tubby Smith and College of Charleston's Bobby Cremins.

Maryland's brief flirtation with Arizona men's basketball coach Sean Miller didn't end because it was outbid, according to multiple sources who said Wednesday that there was more to it than money. Miller and Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson met Saturday at a Las Vegas hotel to explore the possibility that Miller — who led the Wildcats to the NCAA tournament's West Regional final — might be hired to replace the retiring Gary Williams. Late Saturday night, Arizona said Miller was signing a contract extension to remain with the school.

VILLANOVA, Pa. - Jay Wright was basking in the glow of Villanova's most lopsided victory ever in a Big East game when he got some conference updates that deflected attention away from the Wildcats' 38-point rout of No. 21 West Virginia. Georgetown beat No. 16 Pittsburgh. At Pittsburgh. Boston College beat No. 10 Connecticut. In Hartford. Wright picked up his jaw off the floor outside his Villanova locker room Wednesday night, and was reminded that he could have chosen a better era to re-establish a program in the Big East.
