1. Miami coach Perry Clark is on thin ice. Just 4,025 fans showed up at Miami's Convocation Center last Saturday to watch the Hurricanes lose their seventh straight game, 91-74 to Syracuse, dropping their record to 13-12.
2. Florida needs to get tougher. During their 73-70 home loss to LSU on Saturday, the Gators shot just eight free throws compared with LSU's 28 and were outplayed down the stretch.
3. The Pac-10 will probably get only two NCAA tournament bids. Since 1988 the league has never placed fewer than three teams, but Cal (11-10) and Oregon (12-7), who were tied for third place, are likely headed for the NIT.
