The CBS Sports Network does some drum beating for March Madness Monday night with " The Miracles : The 1988 Kansas Jayhawks," a documentary about how an underdog team won the national championship that year. Known as Danny and the Miracles, because of star Danny Manning, Kansas upset the Oklahoma Sooners for the championship. There are a couple of local angles worth noting in the film that marks the 25th anniversary of that championship. One of the producers is Tamiko Bullock, a graduate of Morgan State University.

Several months ago, Josh Selby was talking on the phone to mentor Carmelo Anthony. It was just a friendly conversation between two men who know exactly what it feels like to be a basketball prodigy from inner city Baltimore. Anthony, a four-time NBA all-star who now plays for the New York Knicks, tried to give Selby some advice as he prepared for the upcoming NBA draft, which takes place tonight in New York City. You're going to hear a lot of criticism, Anthony said. Your game is going to be picked apart, and you're going to be worn down by what feels like a never-ending cycle of workouts and interviews.

NEW ORLEANS - Even after losing a key post player, the Kansas Jayhawks never doubted they had the ability to return to college basketball's top event. Even though they toil in the relative anonymity of Conference USA and had not participated in these surroundings in more than a quarter-century, the Marquette Golden Eagles envisioned themselves here months ago. Something must give tonight in a Final Four matchup with no shortage of subplots. Kansas, one of the game's more storied programs, has a first-team All-American in senior forward Nick Collison, a scrappy scorer and defender in senior guard Kirk Hinrich, and a 15-year success story in coach Roy Williams, who might not be working in Lawrence much longer.

They were also superior, at least during an 83-77 victory at the Arena.

Maybe it was the sight of all those fat Florida oranges being tossed in the air by the Kansas Jayhawks football players as they celebrated their televised victory over Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl. Or maybe it was the knowledge that when the worst of winter hits here, luscious oranges imported from sunny climes arrive in the produce aisle. Or maybe I just needed a big dose of vitamin C. For whatever reason, I woke up the other morning craving fresh-squeezed orange juice. I hit the juice-bar trail.
