NCAA may move 3-point line: The men's 3-point line may be moved back one foot. This will make it 3 inches farther than the international line, but 3 feet closer than the NBA line (at its farthest point). The women's line will remain the same. Is this the right change? Was change needed?
Florida 84, Ohio State 75: Florida holds off Oden, Ohio State to win its second basketball title and remains the only school to hold both the football and basketball championships. Let the debates begin: Greatest athletics program of all time? Is Noah still a lottery pick? Another year for Oden?

The West picture is definitely looking a lot more competitive than most envisioned, but can the Clippers advance any further? Will the two Los Angeles teams finally go head-to-head in the playoffs? If so, have the Clippers converted enough fans to have an inkling of home court advantage in that series?
