College hoops team dominated Ivy League and was first men's squad to clinch spot in NCAAs. NBA's Sixers got five-time All-Star Chris Webber for a playoff run, moving Allen Iverson to say he was--brace yourself--eager to practice. And Pittsburgh's NFL kingpin, RB Jerome Bettis, silenced retirement talk by signing a one-year deal to stay in the Steel City.
Lost weekend for hell-bent New Hampshire schusser: He slid off course in last Saturday's giant slalom, he crashed into a gate in Sunday's slalom, and what was once a 191-point lead in the World Cup standings has slipped to 31, threatening Miller's chances to become first U.S. man to win circuit in 22 years.
Fan favorite Ty Law is out (released), and gouging is in. Ticket prices were hiked 20%, and while Pats announced they'll relax no-transfer policy on season tickets--team got bad press last year after a ticket holder died and Pats demanded the tickets back from his cancer-stricken son--it comes at a price. Transferring to family member costs $2,500-$5,000 a seat.
