INDIANAPOLIS -- Miles Simon is not a student of college basketball history, recent or otherwise. The Arizona junior guard had no clue who "Danny and the Miracles" were, when former Kansas star Danny Manning and the 1988 Kansas Jayhawks were mentioned to him on the eve of last night's NCAA championship game.He thought they were a singing group.But Simon is now part of that history, and so is Arizona.Just call them "Miles and the Miracles, Part II."With Simon outplaying Kentucky star Ron Mercer, and with the underdog Wildcats outshooting their more fabled and favored nicknamesakes here at the RCA Dome, Arizona upset the defending national champion in overtime, 84-79, to give long-maligned coach Lute Olson his first NCAA title.

MINNEAPOLIS - In its 80-61 win over Michigan State last night, Arizona literally stole the show. The telling stat was the Wildcats had more steals (12) than turnovers (eight), and sophomore guard Gilbert Arenas led the way. Arenas had a Final Four-record six steals and turned the ball over just once, with a team-high seven assists also thrown in. "As a team, we've been trying over the last couple months to really concentrate on trying to keep the turnovers under 10," said Arizona coach Lute Olson.

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.

Has a sense of history and a bright future.Dave Winfield -- loser-- Winnie's hanging on for 500 home runs, but as a right-handed designated hitter he doesn't get many at bats.

PHILADELPHIA -- Arizona coach Lute Olson is no longer a voice crying out in the wilderness. He no longer has to plead the case for college hoops in the wild, wild West.Three of the top seven teams in the nation are from the West. Olson's Wildcats are No. 6 in this week's Associated Press poll, Nevada-Las Vegas is No. 1 and UCLA is No. 7.That trend should continue, given that region's improved coaching, increased stability of programs and the way UNLV, Arizona, UCLA, Arizona State and Southern Cal have been recruiting lately.

Going to Indianapolis: Despite its off-court problems with the NCAA involving point guard Erick Barkley, the Red Storm has won 11 of its past 12 games. St. John's gets solid inside play and relies on Barkley and senior Bootsy Thornton (Dunbar) from the perimeter. Team on the rise: It has been a season-long comeback for LSU, which has returned from a virtual NCAA death penalty under third-year coach John Brady and stars Stromile Swift and Jabari Smith. Team on the decline: Purdue lost its regular season finale to Indiana, then helped Wisconsin get into the NCAA tournament by losing to the Badgers in the opening round of the Big Ten tournament.
