Sad to see that University of Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun is retiring today. As a Connecitcut native, I've had hours and hours of fun watching the team -- especially during the three national championship years. You have to live in a state without major league sports to appreciate the fanatacism of Connecticut fans, and the university's basketball teams command the most loyalty. On the Hartford Courant website, for example, the sports section offers the choices of "UConn Men" and UConn Women," and everyone in the state knows that refers to the basketball teams.

Fundraising events can make for strange bedfellows, particularly when it comes to politics. But more than a few heads were turned, eyebrows were raised and stomachs were -- well, you get the picture -- when it was announced that former longtime rivals and now retired college basketball coaches Gary Williams and Jim Calhoun would be part of the same "Lunch with Legends" in New York City. In town for a game Friday night between their two former teams at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., Williams and Calhoun broke only bread during a luncheon hosted by the Terrapin Club. Williams and Calhoun seem to have buried the proverbial hatchet in their well-publicized feud that flared up nearly a decade ago when the Terps and Huskies were both recruiting former Archbishop Spalding star Rudy Gay, who eventually chose Connecticut.

In anticipation for Friday's Maryland-Connecticut season opener at the Barclays Center, we traded emails with Dom Amore, who covers UConn men's basketball for the Hartford Courant. (For more of Dom's coverage, check out his blog over at the Courant's website .) TRACKING THE TERPS: This UConn team seems to be pretty balanced. Heading into the season what do you think will be the Huskies' greatest strength and biggest question mark? DOM AMORE: Obviously UConn's strength is the backcourt, not only in terms of quality but in terms of experience.

He is UConn hoops Shannon Ryan Chicago Tribune Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun easily could walk into the sunset thumbing his nose at the NCAA with one hand and hoisting a trophy with the other. Nobody should have to retire just because he has reached a certain age, especially when he is clearly on top of his game. At 68, Calhoun became the oldest coach to win an NCAA tournament championship Monday against Butler. He is one of just five coaches to win at least three titles.

Calhoun would succeed Shannon Ryan Chicago Tribune Jim Calhoun and Geno Auriemma have transformed Storrs, Conn., from a rural campus to a hoops hotbed. Calhoun is back in the Final Four and has two championships under his belt with the men's team. Auriemma is the king of women's basketball with seven national titles, and the Huskies are the favorite to win another crown. Both coaches are renowned for their gusto, outspokenness and ability to squeeze every ounce of talent out of their players.

COLLEGE PARK -- Gary Williams has never been big on reaching milestones. Round numbers, such as his impending 600th career victory, are not as relevant to the Maryland basketball coach as his players running the offense to perfection or bringing the same kind of passion to defense that Williams shows on the sideline.

TOP PERFORMERS Folarin Campbell, George Mason -- The sophomore swingman from Silver Spring scored 21 points and made all eight of his field-goal attempts. Tyler Hansbrough, North Carolina -- The freshman forward led the Tar Heels with 24 points in his 14th 20-point game - a North Carolina freshman record. Maurice Ager, Michigan State -- The senior guard scored 10 consecutive points and 13 of 15 to lead the Spartans back to a 52-51 lead with 6:41 left in the game. SURPRISE George Mason -- Winless in their previous NCAA trips in 1989, 1999 and 2001, the Patriots led most of the game and upset Michigan State despite playing without their top defender, Tony Skinn.

The winningest matchup of Division I coaches was definitely one-sided. Seventh-ranked Duke and Mike Krzyzewski won another NIT Season Tip-Off on Friday in New York with a 68-59 victory over No. 13 Connecticut and Jim Calhoun . The Hall of Fame coaches set the record for total career wins in a game, and Krzyzewski now has 839, fourth on the all-time list. Calhoun has 809, good for sixth place. The Blue Devils dominated the Huskies in every category in extending their winning streak in the tournament to 12 games with their third straight title (2000, 2005)

Jim Calhoun kept track of his top-seeded Connecticut Huskies from a hospital instead of the sideline. All he missed on his sick day was the third-biggest rout in NCAA tournament history, a 103-47 win over No. 16 seed Chattanooga in Philadelphia in yesterday's opening round. Calhoun was admitted to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania yesterday afternoon for tests and was to be kept overnight for observation. An unnamed source told ESPN.com that Calhoun, 66, was treated for dehydration and received IV fluids at the hospital.

If I were a big-name college coach at the Final Four, the one place I would try to avoid at all costs would be my own hotel. The Hilton across the street is the coaches' hotel, and another reporter and I wandered over there yesterday morning for about two hours to check out the scene. The place is like a crowded airport, only filled with familiar faces. Here are a few sightings: Bruce Pearl - NOT wearing his usual orange, caused quite a stir around the rumor mill. Roy Williams - Breezed through but stopped to sign a few autographs.
