Houston honored its legendary coach at halftime of Saturday's game against No. 3 Memphis and then unceremoniously disposed of the Tigers in a 69-67 victory. Lewis, who had five of his teams at Houston reach the NCAA Final Four, drew a thundering ovation during the halftime ceremony when he took out one of his towels and threw it in the air as he did after victories when he coached.

Acorn owners Maggie Lobl, Erin Tanaka and Laura Tanaka said they wanted to open a home and garden boutique in Eagle Rock because of Colorado Boulevard's amiable vibe. “It's so friendly here,” Lobl said. “People really walk in this neighborhood and favor local indie shops.” Indeed, earlier this week, repeat visitors from the neighborhood stopped in to shop for gifts and peruse the sunny, welcoming space. Packed with terrariums, planters, books and ceramics, the former paintball supply store features a refreshing variety of accessories that won't break the bank: graphic Pehr tea towels ($13.50)
