PIPELINES

When he was at Illinois, Bill Self reclaimed Chicago for the Illini; now he's luring top area talent to Kansas. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski has plied his hometown regularly, and Marquette's Tom Crean has sold his success with Wade to recruits. New DePaul coach Jerry Wainwright has a commitment from Will Walker, a local 2006 blue-chipper.

You can tell a guy is from the Chi by his attitude and the way he plays: with heart, hunger and a we're-gonna-fight-till-the-end attitude.
