VALPARAISO, Ind. -- There's barely a breeze outside the Valparaiso Athletics-Recreation Center, making the 35-degree temperatures on campus somewhat tolerable. Still, Paul Sawyer has to be cold, standing on the bed of a pickup truck with "No. 1" painted on his bare chest."It feels great. I'm just out here waiting to greet my team," said Sawyer, an Arizona native, who was taking a break from classes at Valparaiso just after noon yesterday. "I'll be out here as long as I have to. The cold? I don't feel it. I guess I'm going on adrenalin."

ST. LOUIS -- Their memorable NCAA tournament was over, yet Valparaiso's fans didn't want their moment to end after last night's 74-68 loss to Rhode Island.So they stayed in their seats long after the game was over and cheered. And chanted. They wanted one more moment with their players, one more opportunity to show their appreciation.And thus Valparaiso, which has provided one special moment after another in the tournament, provided yet another -- a curtain call.A locker-room gathering in which every single individual was in tears was interrupted so that the players and coaches of the team could walk onto the Kiel Arena floor en masse to acknowledge their thousands of fans.

VALPARAISO, CHILE / / As the tram moves up the steep tracks of Artilleria Hill, I catch glimpses of Valparaiso and its port below. The ride is a mere 5 minutes, and at the top we emerge on a promenade lifted from the late 19th century. It has cobblestones, blossoming trees and a cast-iron railing worthy of Queen Victoria with all its flourishes. We stand alongside tourists and Chileans, hushed by the view before us. Valparaiso makes a perfect crescent along the Pacific Ocean, with the city's famous 42 hills rising behind.

SALT LAKE CITY -- St. Joseph's renaissance season turned ragged yesterday, but the Hawks had enough savvy -- and good fortune -- to plow past Pacific, 75-65, in a West Regional opener at the Huntsman Center.St. Joe's backcourt of Rashid Bey and Arthur Davis supplied the savvy, hitting 15 of 27 shots and scoring 41 points.Pacific, a school that hadn't been to the NCAA tournament since 1979, supplied the good fortune. The Big West champion shot a miserly 39.3 percent, coughed up 17 turnovers and failed to take advantage of opportunities.

ST. LOUIS -- In many ways, Keith Bogans has typified what had been a disappointing regular season for Kentucky. After nearly leaving for the NBA after his sophomore year, Bogans figured to be one of the top players in the country. But the former DeMatha High School star struggled with his shot, his confidence and sometimes with his coach. Bogans got off to a good start yesterday, and so did the Wildcats. He scored a team-high 21 points in Kentucky's 83-68 victory over Valparaiso in the first round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

VALPARAISO, Chile - In certain neighborhoods of this bohemian port city, you can get your teeth cleaned, have your water heater fixed or munch on a loaf of homemade bread without spending any money. All you need are "talents." That's the name the Valparaiso bartering club has given to its official "currency," little beige certificates that resemble the Community Chest cards in a Monopoly game. A club member might pay you 30 talentos if you fix her kitchen faucet. Take those talentos to the Wednesday night bartering fair, and you can trade them for jars of homemade preserves (two talentos each)
