Time, site: Approximately 10 tonight, Miami ArenaTV: NoneOutlook: Connecticut, the No. 2 seed, hasn't advanced to a regional final since 1990, when it lost to Duke. Donyell Marshall scored a total of 37 in the Huskies' two NCAA wins. Florida, seeded third, has advanced to the Sweet 16 for the second time in school history. The first appearance was in 1987. The Gators should have a partisan crowd for this game.

WASHINGTON - It is the arrogance that most offends. Yes, the wrongheadedness is troubling, the ignorance irritating. But that damn-you arrogance is what makes you need to count to 10. I refer to the latest insult to free speech in Miami, about which, more in a moment. But first, a little background for those who came in late. Four years ago, the Cuban band Los Van Van played the Miami Arena while hundreds of Cuban exiles protested outside. They had been incited by local officials who had tried for days to block the performance of a group they regard as closely aligned with Fidel Castro's communist regime.

Life is an event. Life is a ball. An Army-Navy gala here, a WWF Smackdown there, the Pope then, Paul Simon now, monster truck shows this week, Disney shows next week, the NCAA tournament, baseball's All-Star game, Ric Flair in the flesh, Scott Hamilton on the ice, and the circus, never forget the circus - or Faith Hill. Edie Brown is an event. She's a ball. At 67, the publicity maven of the fabulous Baltimore Arena is shaving her work week by two-thirds. After 22 years of having a hand in countless Baltimore affairs, Brown is semi-retiring from her head PR post, which, in her world, is not synonymous with "slowing down."

MIAMI -- Juwan Howard and Chris Webber were as dominating as two players can be. They were scoring, rebounding and otherwise swinging to a two-man dance step that had the Miami Heat baffled.But they received no help. None of any consequence, at least. And that's why the Washington Bullets are going into the All-Star break with a six-game losing streak.Loss No. 6 came last night, 111-107 to the Miami Heat before 14,279 at Miami Arena, despite season-high scoring from Howard and Webber. Both nearly recorded triple doubles along the way."

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Words like "slap shot" slid into the South Florida vocabulary. Parents began thinking that kidsplaying hockey in Florida was as normal as kids playing soccer.Now a cruel political reality is melting the dream.As one after another last-minute deal to build a sports arena in South Florida has fallen apart, the realization is sinking in that South Florida and hockey may not be meant for each other.But people -- and potential team owners -- in other cities are starting to think that maybe the Panthers are just what they need.

MIAMI -- Boston College pulled the upset of the NCAA tournament when it knocked off top-ranked North Carolina a week ago. The ninth-seeded Eagles followed it up Friday night with an impressive victory over Bobby Knight's Indiana Hoosiers that vaulted them into today's showdown with Florida in the East Regional final at the Miami Arena.It has been a wild and exciting ride for coach Jim O'Brien and a team that was bounced unceremoniously out of the Big East tournament in the first round, but the Eagles have lost something along the way.The chance to be underestimated.

MIAMI -- After suffering three tough losses in a row, the Washington Bullets never really had a chance last night, losing, 125-112, to the Miami Heat.And things might not get better before the Orlando Magic visits the Capital Centre on Feb. 2. In the next week and a half, Washington has the Phoenix Suns and Boston Celtics at home and New York Knicks home and away.Miami has a losing record, though last night in front of 14,541 at Miami Arena, the Heat sent out a reminder that home is where the heart is. Unlike the Bullets, who are 6-13 at the Capital Centre, Miami is formidable on its home court.

Recently I was in a restaurant-bar called Taurus, which is in Coconut Grove, which is one of the more bizarre sections of Miami, which is definitely saying something, and I noticed that there were a lot of people there carrying blowguns.One of the guiding principles in my life has always been: "Never hang around with people who have access to both mixed drinks and dart-shooting weapons." But these people seemed friendly, so I got to talking to them. It turned out that they were a blowgun league.
