TODAY, WHEN the NCAA announces the 65 teams for March Madness - its annual basketball championship tournament - much more is at stake than school pride. Under CBS-TV's contract with collegiate sports' presiding body, every win in the march to the Final Four is worth $780,000 for schools. That's chump change compared with separate deals for top football bowls worth as much as $13 million per school. In big-time college sports these days, the madness is year-round. Across the country, Division I schools have invested billions of dollars in monumental facilities, even though all but a handful lose money on sports.

Florida and the NCAA are investigating an allegation that former Gators offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey received $100,000 from a representative of a sports agent before last season ended, ESPN.com reported Monday. The allegation stated Pouncey received the money between Florida's loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference title game and its Sugar Bowl win over Cincinnati, according to the report. The alleged representative was not named. "We were made aware of some information in early June that we reported to law enforcement and we then shared with the NCAA and the SEC," Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said in a statement.

Send waves to Alabama Mike Bianchi Orlando Sentinel If I were king of the NCAA, I would not only saturate Alabama with investigators, I would set up a branch office in Tuscaloosa. In Alabama, cheating is as much a part of the football lore as the houndstooth hat worn by Bear Bryant. Alabama has seen it all over the last 20 years. Shady loans. Athletes illicitly accepting cash payments from agents and boosters. Multiple probations. Postseason bans.

INDIANAPOLIS - Duke and Butler ended an NCAA tournament to remember with a championship game you'll never forget. Butler almost did it, but Duke was just a little bit better Monday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Not by much - but enough. There was no Hollywood ending. Butler star Gordon Hayward missed two shots to win in the last 3.6 seconds, one a baseline jumper and then a 3-point attempt from near midcourt that nearly made it. The Big Dog won, not the underdog The final score was 61-59, but that will never be the end of it. Duke won its fourth national title and its coach Mike Krzyzewski moved his program into the upper tier of the upper echelon.

Apparently, the world's most powerful man doesn't think much of the Maryland women's basketball team's chances of enjoying March Madness past Monday. In his NCAA tournament bracket breakdown on ESPN, President Barack Obama predicted No. 7-seeded Louisville would take care of Michigan State -- which it did Saturday afternoon -- then upset the second-seeded Terps at Comcast Center on Monday night. If it's any consolation to the team -- and you'd have to think it isn't, really -- the former hoopster has the Cardinals winning once more before falling to top-seeded Notre Dame in the Elite Eight.

The Maryland women's win over Georgetown Wednesday night might have gone a long way toward earning the Terrapins a top four seed in the NCAA tournament. The top four play at home through the first two rounds before the winners head to the final four at Stony Brook on Long Island Memorial Day weekend. Although they must wait until May 6 to learn their spot in the bracket, the Terps (17-3) finished especially strong avenging regular-season losses to No. 7 Duke and No. 4 North Carolina in the ACC tournament and avoiding a letdown against the No. 16 Hoyas in the regular-season finale.

As a defender, Jacksonville junior Rachel Hannon doesn't contribute the big scoring numbers that make headlines, but she draws the spotlight in another way. Hannon set a NCAA record this spring for draw controls in a season. She won 131 to break the record of 126 set by Maryland's Dana Dobbie in 2008. She also broke the record for draw controls per game, averaging 6.89 to best the 6.29 of Towson's Hillary Fratzke in 2006. In addition, Hannon set a Dolphins record for most draw controls in a game with 13, just two off the all-time mark of 15 set by Virginia Tech's Allie Emala (Bryn Mawr)

The players and coaches on the Loyola basketball team displayed varying emotions after their magical run to the school's first NCAA tournament in 18 years ended early Friday morning at the Consol Energy Center . Junior forward Erik Etherly, his eyes red-rimmed and teary, cried. Guards R.J. Williams and Dylon Cormier, the team's Baltimore backcourt, smiled. And Jimmy Patsos, the team's 45-year-old coach, rambled long after Loyola (24-9) finished its most successful season in the program's 30-year history in Division I. But all shared a common thought - despite the 78-59 loss to No. 2 Ohio State, the No. 15 Greyhounds will try to build on the experience of holding their own for long stretches against a Big Ten team ranked in the top 10 for the entire season.
