The healing of Scott Williams: On the outside, there is the scar on the right shoulder, the result of off-season surgery to correct the problem of having it pop out of joint. On the inside, there are no scars because the wounds are still there. But, finally, they, too, are healing. It has been a long time coming, this healing, 4 1/2 years. That's how long it has been since Williams' parents, Al and Rita Williams, died in a murder-suicide.

Southwest Airlines planes began departing their gates late Friday, more than two hours after a companywide computer glitch caused flights to be grounded throughout the western United States. Planes began taking off about 10:30 p.m., said company spokesman Brad Hawkins. The company estimated that 250 flights had been affected by a shutdown in the computer software used to dispatch flights. Hawkins said the airline is relying on a slower backup system. “We sincerely appreciate everyone's patience as we work diligently now to get people where they are supposed to be,” Hawkins said in an email.

Since he wasn't doing anything this weekend, Kansas Coach Roy Williams was in the stands at Greensboro Coliseum for the East Regional games. Williams' son Scott, a reserve guard for North Carolina, played one minute in the Tar Heels' victory over Michigan State. Kansas was upset by Rhode Island in the second round of the Midwest Regional on Sunday. "He's taking it real hard," Scott Williams said of Kansas' loss. "He feels bad. You can only tell the players so much."

In the end, it came down to two free throws, but it shouldn't have. No, Saturday's Southern Section 3-A boys' basketball final between Hacienda Heights Wilson High School and Pomona Ganesha should not have been decided that way. But it was, as Ganesha's Ronald English missed two free throws with eight seconds remaining and his team trailing by one point, and that was the difference as Wilson won, 54-53, in front of 6,373 at the Sports Arena. But English certainly was not to blame for the loss.

Raise your hand if you don't want this NBA Eastern Conference finals series between the 76ers and Bucks to end. It's been fun--nasty, astounding, mean-spirited, high-spirited, pushing, shoving, elbowing, body slamming fun. During Friday's 110-100 series-evening victory by the Bucks, everything this series was about was on display.

When he signed with the University of North Carolina, Scott Williams, star of the Hacienda Heights Wilson basketball team, pointed to North Carolina's two upcoming games at Pauley Pavilion. For him, these would be homecomings, something to look forward to. His parents, who had always been by his side and who were with him at the high school gym when he announced his decision, would come to see him play.
