Sean Woods hit a shot that was nearly one of the biggest in Kentucky basketball history, a high-arching bank off the backboard on a drive down the lane in the waning seconds to put the Wildcats ahead against defending national champion Duke in the 1992 East Regional final. Nearly, because after Mike Krzyzewski called a timeout at the Spectrum in Philadelphia, Christian Laettner hit what might be the single-most replayed shot in NCAA tournament history, an 18-foot turnaround that lifted the Blue Devils to the Final Four and ultimately to a second straight NCAA title.

As a freshman in college, Jourdan Stickler played in a rural town for an infamously intense coach . When the former Annapolis star decided to leave Morehead State, he looked for the opposite. In Houston Baptist, Stickler - a former Baltimore Sun All-Metro first-team selection - found what he was looking for. “I was really impressed with the coaching staff,” said Stickler, who signed with the Huskies last month . “Particularly the fact that [the coaches] seemed laidback, in contrast to Morehead, where I had a coach that could be described as 'in your face.' … It's in the heart of Houston, so the city is all around it compared to Morehead, which was in a rural area.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Since his team lost at home to Pittsburgh in the preseason National Invitation Tournament, Kentucky basketball coach Rick Pitino has been trying to convince anyone who cared to listen that the 14th-ranked Wildcats were overrated and not quite the 22-9 overachievers they were last year.It worked for a while, but won't anymore. When Indiana guard Greg Graham's 21-footer hit the back rim with two seconds remaining yesterday at the Hoosier Dome, Kentucky had secured a 76-74 victory over the ninth-ranked Hoosiers.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- In a classic matchup that was anything but classically beautiful last night, North Carolina beat Kentucky 84-81 by the seat of its pants.North Carolina's win, full of turnovers and one dreadful half of basketball, propelled the Tar Heels into the No. 1 spot on the all-time college basketball victory list with 1,484 wins, one more than Kentucky.But until the bizarre finish, which included North Carolina's King Rice setting up the game-winning basket while sitting on his rear end near midcourt, 18th-ranked Kentucky had the ninth-ranked Tar Heels in serious danger in the Smith Center.

This is how the relationship began with Hank Haney too. Recently divorced from his swing coach, Tiger Woods tries going it alone with limited success. Eventually, a new guy starts turning up during Woods' practice rounds — his playing partner's swing coach. Nothing going on. Really. He's the other guy's coach. OK, maybe the occasional once-over from a second set of eyes. Then months later, formal confirmation arrives via fan letter or blog post. Somewhere on this timeline now stands Sean Foley, who just happens to coach two of the PGA Tour's four multiple winners this year, Justin Rose and Hunter Mahan.
