It's fair to say Jay Bilas has had an eventful year, having been branded a basketball Benedict Arnold in Spain, been dunked over by a 4-foot-2 child prodigy in a TV commericial, then having spent several months as an alien life form in Houston. And that was all by Memorial Day. The career of the former Rolling Hills High basketball star will soon take another turn when he returns to Duke University as an assistant basketball coach while pursuing his law degree. For the past three years, since his collegiate career ended at Duke, that's been the way the Bilas bounces.

Too much pasta landed three University of Oklahoma athletes on the wrong side of the NCAA rule book. The unusual case, first reported Wednesday by the Oklahoman, came after the trio attended a graduation banquet in 2013. To restore their eligibility, the athletes each had to donate $3.83 to charity to cover the cost of the pasta. The school reported the situation to the NCAA. "This is unusual," said John Infante, a former compliance director at Colorado State and Loyola Marymount who writes the Bylaw Blog.

From his first day at Duke University four years ago, Jay Bilas, the former Rolling Hills High School basketball star, was immediately the center of attention. "Are you one of the new basketball players?" a Blue Devils fan, with awe in his eyes, asked the 6-8, 225-pound center who was at a shopping mall buying linens for his dorm room. In Los Angeles, seeing a celebrity is not unusual. But the star treatment was unusual for Bilas.

Duke men don't wear plaid. Not even Mike Krzyzewski, the Bob Knight protege who coaches the NCAA basketball tournament's Yuppiest team. "I hate plaid," Krzyzewski said Sunday, which was his way of kidding his former boss, whose sport coats sometimes belonged on a horse. What does the well-dressed Duke man wear?

"I Come in Peace" (citywide) is stale through and through, derived from countless cop-buddy formula thrillers, drenched in violence and devoid of so much as a whiff of real life. So desperate are the filmmakers to come up with a fresh angle that they have the bad guy come from outer space.

Tom Izzo has won a national championship, but the Michigan State basketball coach said that experience can't compare to his recent trip to Kuwait. "It was a life-changing experience, and other than my children being born, I don't think I've had another one of those," Izzo said in a telephone interview Friday afternoon, about 12 hours after returning to East Lansing, Mich. "It might sound hokey, but I know I'll be a better person and American for going over there." Izzo led his team of U.S.

President Obama sure can pick 'em - at least as far as NCAA brackets are concerned. While most Americans and even so-called experts saw their brackets busted in the opening rounds of the college basketball tournament, Obama fared surprisingly well. He ranks in the 98th percentile in ESPN's "Tournament Challenge," with 460 out of a possible 640 points. That's good for a rank of No. 131,052 out of the millions submitted on the network's website. Obama missed on 13 of the 48 games played so far. The overall leader on ESPN missed just six games.
