They play in different conferences and are separated by two time zones and roughly 1,500 miles, but USC and Arkansas are vaguely familiar with each other's personnel. Razorbacks junior center Steven Hill played against Trojans junior guard Gabe Pruitt and junior swingman Nick Young several years ago at the Michael Jordan Camp in Santa Barbara, and USC Coach Tim Floyd said his staff "looked at" Arkansas junior swingman Sonny Weems, one of the top junior college transfers in the country.

It is just another bowl game, a relative bottom-feeder among the 25 now available for public consumption, yet tonight's Las Vegas Bowl at Sam Boyd Stadium finds Coach John Robinson paraphrasing Charles Dickens. "It's the best of times," Robinson boasted at the Las Vegas Bowl kickoff news conference. Not necessarily the best of teams, mind you.

Action taken by Coach Nolan Richardson and Athletic Director Frank Broyles after an incident involving basketball players wasn't as fast or as stern as University of Arkansas Chancellor Dan Ferritor wanted. A 34-year-old woman told police she was sexually assaulted in the athletic dormitory. Four basketball players said they had sex with her, but said she consented. The woman did not press charges.

Who's the most successful coach in NCAA history? John Wooden and his 10 NCAA basketball championships at UCLA? Not even close. Rod Dedeaux and his 11 College World Series baseball titles for USC? Forget it. Dean Cromwell and his 12 track championships in the 1930s and '40s at USC? Nope. The NCAA track and field championships begin Wednesday at Buffalo, N.Y.

Just spent the last seven hours listening to my office voice mail. That done, I want to thank the always classy Bruin fans for their kind words, some of them actually longer than four letters. You might recall that I picked Arkansas over UCLA in the Final Four championship game. If you don't, I can give you the number of the Bruin enthusiast who suggested something I might do with a basketball. My only question is, pumped or unpumped?

Here are some announcements that I have personally written for Jim Harrick to make at today's UCLA pep rally at Pauley Pavilion, home of the national champions: 1. Don't fire the coach! 2. Dear Mr. and Mrs. O'Bannon: Send us more sons! 3. UCLA can beat Arkansas with one hand tied behind Tyus Edney's back! 4. Earth to Toby Bailey: You are cleared for landing! 5. Dear Mr. President: Sorry about turning your Razorbacks into ham sandwiches! 6. We need more Czech centers! 7.

The best thing about CBS announcers Jim Nantz and Billy Packer is they simply call the game. No unnecessary editorializing, no gratuitous plugs for buddies in the coaching profession, no tired cliches. And you'd never catch one of them yelling, "Yeah, baby." It wasn't that long ago that CBS had Brent Musburger calling these national championship games, and Musburger made sure viewers knew he was there. He did everything but yell, "Yeah, baby."

Blair Woodward, UCLA Class of '87, came spilling out the door of Legends Sports Bar on Monday night, slightly hoarse and nearly out of breath. "I'm ecstatic, I'm elated," she croaked just seconds after UCLA defeated Arkansas 89-78 to claim its 11th NCAA basketball title. "We're in! This is better than beating USC in football!" Woodward, of Corona del Mar, was among the raucous Bruin fans who made up the unquestionable majority of the standing-room-only crowd at Legends.

UCLA transformed the impossible into the inevitable Monday night, reclaiming the throne it last held 20 years ago with a performance that surpassed the grandeur of its past. So high, the wrenching loss of Tyus Edney only made the Bruins go faster, and the presence of John Wooden only made them calmer. So high, all the ghosts and whispers and dreams that have followed this team were left trailing behind, like vapor in the wind.
