They are the three best friends that anyone could have. Sam Koch, Morgan Cox and Justin Tucker are pretty much inseparable. Whether they are taking on Joe Flacco and Michael Oher in a heated game of cornhole, hitting the Las Vegas strip in the offseason, or helping the Ravens win football games with clean snaps and clutch kicks, you rarely spot one member of "the Wolf Pack" without seeing the other two trailing a step behind. "We're all three kind of strung from the same bean and have a lot of fun out there," Koch said.

There won't be thousands cheering on Todd Okeson of Weskan, Kan., Friday as the local farm boy tries to take Nevada deeper into the NCAA tournament when the Wolf Pack meets Georgia Tech. That's because Weskan's population is 393. The enrollment at Weskan High School is 42, and folks say it might have been only 38 or 39 when Okeson was there. Is it any wonder the 6-foot, 165-pound guard didn't get a single NCAA Division I scholarship offer out of high school? "I was from too small a town.

NEW ORLEANS -- The short jump shot that banged off the rim, and helped Nevada's season spiral to an end, will haunt Nick Fazekas for months. "It's a shot I make nine out of ten times," the Wolf Pack forward said afterward. "That could have changed the whole game. Fazekas' miss came with 5:02 remaining and Nevada, the No. 7 seed in the South Region, trailing No. 2 seed Memphis by two. The Tigers would score on the ensuing possession, starting a 14-point run that sealed a 78-62 second-round NCAA tournament victory.

SEATTLE - So this is how it feels. Gonzaga was finally the big dog, but the big dog is going home and 10th-seeded Nevada is in the Sweet 16 after a 91-72 upset of the second-seeded Zags, the Cinderellas of so many years past. It wasn't even close. Gonzaga guard Blake Stepp missed shot after shot, going 3-for-18. "Short, long, in-and-out," said Stepp, just 1-for-12 from three-point range in his final NCAA game. "It definitely doesn't feel good to go out like this. We had a good season, but right now it doesn't feel like it."

NEW ORLEANS -- With less than a second left in overtime and Nevada's two-possession lead guaranteeing victory, coach Mark Fox wrapped an arm around senior forward Nick Fazekas and whispered into his ear. "I told him I was proud of him," Fox said after the Wolf Pack's 77-71 victory over Creighton yesterday. "I told him that it would come back to him. And that he gets to play another day." Fazekas, the cornerstone of Nevada's ascension to national prominence the past four seasons, watched the final 3:06 of overtime from the bench after fouling out. As he sat, guards Kyle Shiloh, Marcelus Kemp and Ramon Sessions combined to score the No. 7 seed Wolf Pack's final 14 points.

GOING TO ST. LOUIS Illinois' upset loss to Ohio State last week ended talk of an undefeated season, which takes some pressure off. The Illini withstood the death of coach Bruce Weber's mother and a scoreless outing from Dee Brown in the championship game and still won the Big Ten title. They'll face a likely regional final against Oklahoma State, but should complete the trip to the Final Four. TEAM ON THE RISE LSU goes into the tournament with momentum, winning seven of its past eight.

GOING TO INDIANAPOLIS Boston College has a prospective Sweet 16 game against former Big East foe Villanova, then an Elite Eight date against either second-seeded Ohio State or third-seeded Florida. That is do-able for the Eagles, who won 10 of 11 before giving Duke all it could handle in the ACC final in Greensboro, N.C., yesterday. The Eagles shoot well enough (.486) and play good enough defense (66.4 points a game) to make it. TEAM ON THE RISE No. 7 seed Georgetown will face a second-round test against Ohio State, but the Hoyas could surprise.

GOING TO ATLANTA Ohio State. The top seed lost only three games this season - at North Carolina, at Florida and at Wisconsin. The Buckeyes have won 17 straight going into the tournament and capped a sweep of the Big Ten's regular-season and conference tournament championships with a dominating win yesterday over the Badgers. The combination of freshmen Greg Oden and Mike Conley Jr. will be looking for another net to cut down - three state titles in high school in Indianapolis and two more this season in Columbus.

After a 30-year struggle, grizzlies are multiplying throughout Yellowstone National Park as another top predator -- the gray wolf -- has helped build the bear population in a surprising way.
