Coast to Tyus Edney against Mizzou

It's D-Day for Roger Clemens. 9:30 this morning, we may begin to know who the real fraud is, Clemens or Brian McNamee. Will this ruin Clemens' legacy forever? His life is essentially on the line, while McNamee can continue to be a nobody one way or the other.

Yesterday's primaries were both clean sweeps.
Barack Obama won all three of the Potomac races on the Democratic side, while John McCain took them all on the Republican side. Though Evangelicals are still supporting Huckabee.

How good is this?
Another Hilton has been picked up for DUI.

Get ready, all of you MTV fans, the network has announced they are doing a
Real World Awards Bash to be aired later in March.

We love Gossip Girl and star Blake Lively, but we've now found the real reason to love her.
Her brother is Rusty from European Vacation!

20 NCAA College Basketball writers were invited to Indianapolis to creat the first
mock bracket of the year.

The self-reported sanctions may not be enough for the Indiana Basketball program, says the NCAA.

#23 Purdue 60 #9 Michigan State 54 - It was the Robbie Hummel show in West Lafayette last night. The 6'8 Freshman stud had a career high 24 points while grabbing 11 boards in front of as loud of a crowd as you will hear. Hummel was seemingly everywhere, knocking down four three pointers and diving all over the floor on defense. Give Matt Painter credit. He spotted the Spartans weakness, namely Goran Suton's defense, and went right at it. The baby Boilers were outrebounded by the Spartans and shot just 37% from the field, but they had enough juice to take control of the Big Ten race. They now sit at 11-1 and have won 10 in a row. Meanwhile, the great Drew Neitzel continues his maddening Senior season for MSU. In 35 minutes, he shot just 1-7.

#5 North Carolina 75 Virginia 74 - The game wasn't as close as the score, but UNC still struggled without Point Guard Ty Lawson for the third straight game. With Quinton Thomas in foul trouble all night, Marcus Ginyard had to run the team and did just enough to keep the flow offensively. It shouldn't be that hard: bring the ball up the floor and throw it in the post to yler Hansbrough. He had 23 points on 10-15 shooting. Sean Singletary had 27 for the Cavaliers.

#10 Butler 83 Wisconsin-Milwaukee 75 OT - Mike Green shook off an ankle injury and saved the Bulldogs bacon. He had 24 points, 13 rebounds, and eight assists while his fellow backcourt mate A.J. Graves shot just 2-14. Willie Veasley and Pete Campbell added 12 each.

#19 Vanderbilt 93 Kentucky 52 - Vandy was clearly still angry at the Cats for giving them their first loss of the season earlier. They crushed Kentucky by 41, handing them their worst SEC loss in the school's long history. "To have them to stomp us into the ground like that, it's horrible," freshman Patrick Patterson said. "They played like men, and we played like boys." The school at the half was 41-11. Shan Foster had 20 while A.J. Ogivly added 19. "We just got our tail kicked. That's all there is to it. It's one loss, and we got our tail kicked severely. Congratulations to Vanderbilt. They played fantastic. We'll move on. We'll make a positive out of it someway," UK Coach Billy Gillespie said.

#24 Pittsburgh 82 Providence 63 - The Panthers moved to 19-5 after this pasting of Providence. Sam Young led all scorers with 22 with seven boards. Pittsburgh shot 58% from the field and cruised to the easy W. They held the Friars to six points in the first 11 minutes of the second half.

#25 Marquette 89 Seton Hall 64 - Lazar Hayward had the game coach Tom Crean has been looking for all year. The PF scored 23 points and grabbed nine boards as the Golden Eagles put together their best performance in weeks. They shot 10-21 from deep and outrebounded the Pirates 39-22.

Louisville 88 Depaul 68 - After their big win over Georgetown, Rick Pitino was hoping his team wouldn't suffer a let down. They didn't. Terrance Williams had 22 points and David Padgett had 20 in 23 minutes as the Cardinals went to Chicago and completely dominated Depaul.
