THE NCAA Final Four consists of three teams seeded No. 2 or higher, and one seeded fourth. That said, you would think that among the more than five million brackets entered in CBSSports.com's tournament pool, a significant percentage would have a perfect Final Four. Think again. Apparently, a lot people go with the No. 1 seeds. According to the website, only 17,979 brackets - out of 5,136,592 - penciled in Ohio State (No. 2, East), Kansas (No. 2, Midwest), Kentucky (No. 1, South)

First, it was Norfolk State, champion of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, shocking Big 12 titlist Missouri, 86-84, in Omaha, Neb. Less than three hours later, Lehigh, the...

OMAHA, Neb. - Welcome to the NCAA tournament, Norfolk State. Might as well stick around a while.

Philadelphia native Pendarvis Williams, a former Public League standout at Bodine High who finished his college prep at the Hun School, added 20 points for the MEAC champion Spartans (26-9)

There is a certain down side to wearing braces, conceded 16-year-old Aparicio Giddins. The metal bands can get in the way. "Braces have affected my social life a little," he said. "To kiss a girl, they don't like that metal being there. It's very bad for business. " Well, actually, business is not that bad. "Plenty of people have looked past my braces. A whole lot of my female friends don't mind. " That seems to be the bottom line on braces today: not wonderful, but definitely tolerable.

This is getting ridiculous. Nine brackets of Public League basketball games should have been played by now, but four have been postponed by weather woes. Yesterday's bracket - each one contains 16 games - was the latest to bite the dust. That caused John Koskinen, the Public League's boys basketball chairman, to again attach a phone to his ear. "We're reaching a critical stage," he said. "All kinds of thoughts are bouncing around in my head as to what we might have to do. " Teams in Divisions A-D and B-C still must play six games to conclude the regular season.

Q: I love the look of beamed ceilings, especially the rustic look of old barn wood. My house didn't come with these, but I want to add them. How can I do this on the cheap and still make it look like the house was built that way? - "Beam Me Up" A: This is a great question, as I love beamed ceilings as well. It's a classic, rugged look that adds personality to any home. It's probably a project you can do on your own if you have carpentry skills, but you will still need a buddy or two to help with the installation.

DOESN'T THIS guy ever rest? Yesterday, Joe Lunardi, the nation's premier bracketologist, posted an early look at next year's NCAA Tournament pairings on ESPN.com. And guess what? Jay Wright's Villanova Wildcats are back as a top seed, this time in the West Region, while Fran Dunphy's Temple Owls are listed as an 11 in the Midwest. And, oh yeah, Lunardi has Lehigh in a play-in game. Two teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference are also No. 1 seeds, but neither is named Duke.

CLICK HERE to download Dick Jerardi's 2015 NCAA tournament bracket in .pdf form. I THOUGHT last year's tournament was wide-open. I did not think it was so wide-open that Connecticut was going to win. I would have gone 15 deep before even considering the Huskies. I do not think this tournament is open at all. I do think there are a few teams that could beat Kentucky. I just don't think any will actually beat the Wildcats. I have seen 40-0 since about mid-January. I still see it. This tournament is really top-heavy.

HE ISN'T KNOWN as the nation's premier bracketologist for nothing. On Nov. 12, Joe Lunardi published his first NCAA Tournament bracket. Yesterday, the selection committee revealed the teams that go to the Big Dance. In comparing then and now, it was revealed that Lunardi - 4 months ago - selected 40 of the 68 teams or 58.8 percent. And that includes Northeastern and Robert Morris. Granted, that was down from last year when he correctly penciled in almost 65 percent of the final field early in the season, but it's still noteworthy.

Temple yo-yoed from on the bubble entering the American Athletic Conference tournament, to almost surely in the field after beating Memphis, to back on the bubble - but how far back? - with its defeat Saturday at the hands of Southern Methodist in the semifinals. Welcome to Selection Sunday, everyone. The fates of about a couple of dozen teams will be determined this day, with a committee of 10 people sitting in Indianapolis doing the seeding and determining which teams will be paired up in each regional.

WASHINGTON - President Obama's plan to raise Medicare premiums for upper-income seniors would create five new income brackets to squeeze more revenue for the government from the top tiers of retirees, the administration revealed Friday. First details of the plan emerged after Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified to Congress on the president's budget. As released two days earlier, the budget included only a vague description of a controversial proposal that has grown more ambitious since Obama last floated it. "Means testing" has been part of Medicare since the George W. Bush administration, but ramping it up is bound to stir controversy.

ATLANTA - Exactly 47 of the 8.15 million brackets filled out in ESPN's bracket challenge got the entire Final Four correct. Just .46 percent got three of four. So, predicting Wichita State-Louisville and Syracuse-Michigan on Saturday night in the Georgia Dome proved quite difficult. Selecting Louisville to win the championship was less daunting. Nearly 22 percent of all brackets selected Louisville to win it. And the Cardinals are still the favorites, 10 points over the Shockers and something like half that if they were to play Syracuse or Michigan on Monday night.
