SPOKANE, Wash. -- Changes of the guard happen generationally, not seasonally, in ice dancing. Teams that are on top tend to stay on top, especially in an Olympic year. But yesterday a changing of the guard occurred in Spokane at the U.S. National Championships, as Meryl Davis, 23, and Charlie White, 22, defeated five-time U.S. champions Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto to win their second straight U.S. title.

Some have wondered if this might be coach Mark Few's best team yet. "They say that every year," says Matt Santangelo, a guard on the '99 team. "But I do like this team. They can play with anyone in the country." (A sturdy challenge awaits against top-seeded North Carolina on Friday.)
Underrated: No. 4 Gonzaga The Zags flopped the last time they were in a high-profile game, losing by 18 to Memphis in Spokane on Feb. 7, and severely damaged their national rep. But Mark Few's team also went undefeated in the West Coast Conference, has one of the country's best combo guards in 6-foot-5 junior Matt Bouldin, and -- most importantly -- is the only club in the country to finish in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. The Zags' defense is ranked higher than that of North Carolina (the South's one-seed), Oklahoma (the two-seed) and Syracuse (the three-seed).

Growing up, Monica Simeon and Marina TurningRobe were introduced to the challenges of running a family business by their father, one of the first Native Americans to open a casino after a 1987 court ruling paved the way for unfettered gambling on tribal lands. A member of the Spokane tribe, Ronald "Buzz" Gutierrez built his casino on the reservation 50 miles northwest of Spokane, Wash. His dutiful daughters tackled every job in the joint: opening the doors to eager gamblers at noon, flipping burgers, dealing cards, counting cash, mopping floors, and locking up at 4 A.M. Someday, they told each other, they would establish their own business - and it would be one with more regular hours.
Underrated: Pittsburgh. The Panthers lost six games between Feb. 2 and March 1; thus their No. 6 seed. But it's worth noting that they have since avenged two of those losses, to Notre Dame and West Virginia, and that their loss to Rutgers in early February was only by four points. With All-America candidates Marcedes Walker and Shavonte Zellous delivering a reliable inside-out attack, the Panthers are dangerous.

SPOKANE, Wash. -- USC has not been kind to Arkansas the last few years. The last two years the football team handed the Razorbacks back-to-back humiliations (combined score 120-31). The Trojans' 77-60 win tonight was more of the same, making the Hogs' unlikely trip to the tournament a short one. While Arkansas had a significant height advantage, they didn't take advantage of it. Taking coach Tim Floyd's keys to the game -- defense and rebounding -- to heart, the Trojans held the Razorbacks, 35 percent 3-point shooters, to 15 percent shooting from the arc. Most significantly, they outrebounded them 39-26, a stat that Floyd admitted surprised him.
