They were two teams too close for comfort. Each other's. The width of a slip of paper separated Arizona and Wisconsin in Saturday night's NCAA West Regional final. And in the end, when Wisconsin won an overtime thriller of thrillers, it was the kind of game they will remember in NCAA basketball tournament lore forever. The final score, before 17,814 in Anaheim's Honda Center, was 64-63, and few will remember that. Margin of victory is all that mattered. Those who were there, or were watching on TV, will remember it as the kind of game where every screen was contested, every shot, even every referee's call.

Outside of the office, 80% of Americans still continue to work, according to enterprise mobility company Good Technology, which surveyed 1,000 U.S. workers.

Last week President Obama ordered the Department of Labor to revise regulations determining which workers qualify for federal overtime protections, a move that was presented as a way to increase income for some lower-wage workers. It's not. In reality, it's a matter of basic fairness. The issue begins with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, which established the national minimum wage for most workers and guaranteed overtime pay for more than 40 hours of work a week. But the law also allowed overtime exemptions to be set by the Labor Department.

A 24-hour extension in labor negotiations is an overtime period that even the most pessimistic NFL fan can embrace. ? Is there a John Elway -type out there who can pull this out? ? Or a Franco Harris ? ? The Lakers' struggles against the Charlotte Bobcats probably can be summed up in one word: Indifference. ? A year from now, the Clippers should be in the playoff hunt. ? Former USC forward Brian Scalabrine of the Chicago Bulls, in a Sports Illustrated interview, says of unassuming teammate Derrick Rose , "I'm way cockier than he is and I never play.
The Lakers won another game but might have lost another big man. Pau Gasol is a little closer to returning, but Andrew Bynum was injured toward the end of the Lakers' 103-102 overtime victory Wednesday over the Houston Rockets. Bynum was fouled hard across his right arm while going up for a shot and sustained a sprained elbow with 24.7 seconds left in overtime. He will be re-evaluated today in Los Angeles. "I can't even lift my arm right now," Bynum said. "They just took a shot at me. That's that, I guess.

WASHINGTON -- Saying it's “just fair” for more Americans to earn overtime pay, President Obama on Thursday directed the Labor Department to come up with new rules to expand the number of workers eligible. Before sitting down to sign a presidential memorandum to “modernize” work rules, Obama told a crowd gathered at the White House that the current standards are no longer adequate. Many workers in the U.S. earn roughly an hourly wage but don't qualify for overtime because they're designated as management.

NHL general managers, meeting Tuesday in Florida, agreed to formally recommend three minor changes to the league's competition committee for consideration at its next meeting, in June. Although the general managers couldn't reach agreement on changing the length or general format of regular-season overtime - or on expanding the use of video replay - they decided to recommend three tweaks to existing rules. First, they will recommend that the hash marks on the faceoff circle be separated by two more feet, or from three feet to five feet, to create more separation between players on the wings.
