1. Just go with it: What a week in Memphis at the Regions Morgan Keegan Championship. Andy Roddick won his first tournament of year -- and third career Memphis title -- beating Milos Raonic in a three-set thriller, wrapping the match up with the most ridiculous winner you will ever see. But for the second week in a row, a tournament was essentially hijacked by Raonic, the hard-serving Canadian who, in the span of barely a month, has gone from an Australian Open qualifier to the highest-ranked singles player in Canadian history (up to No. 37 in this week's rankings). Between his talent and his poise -- his four wins in Memphis were three-setters -- there's a lot of reason for optimism here.
Andy Roddick denied rising Canadian star Milos Raonic his second straight ATP Tour title as he rounded off a three-set final victory in Memphis with a diving forehand passing winner.

A certain college hoops marathon began early Tuesday morning in Memphis, where the AP poll's most freshman-dependent team narrowly avoided being upset by the ACC's worst squad from last season. Of the four headliners from the Tigers' top-ranked recruiting class, one was the leading scorer (highly entertaining point guard Joe Jackson), one was underwhelming (shooting guard Will Barton), one fouled out in 14 minutes (power forward Tarik Black), and one had been kicked off the team three days earlier (small forward Jelan Kendrick).

1. Does Memphis deserve a No. 1 seed? This could be the debate that dominates Selection Sunday. Three of the No. 1s -- UConn, Pitt and North Carolina -- are close to being locked in. But the fourth spot is still up for grabs, and a majority of bracketologists consider Oklahoma to be the best candidate, partly under the assumption that the NCAA selection committee will cut the Sooners slack for the two losses they suffered while Blake Griffin was out with a concussion (and blazered up). If OU doesn't win the Big 12 tournament, though, it opens the door for Memphis, Michigan State, Louisville or even Duke to hop up to a No. 1. The Tigers have the weakest nonconference résumé of that crew -- Tennessee and Gonzaga are their only decent wins -- and the Spartans, Cardinals or Blue Devils would, in my mind, have a more rightful claim to a top seed if they were to win out from now 'til the brackets are built. Memphis' case would be built mostly on momentum; it hasn't lost since Dec. 20, and
