A few seconds into Texas Western's socially significant victory over Kentucky in 1966's NCAA championship game, David "Big Daddy" Lattin slammed home a dunk over Wildcats star Pat Riley. Adolph Rupp, the coach of all-white Kentucky, grimaced. He hated the dunk, thought it was an affront to fundamental basketball. On the other bench, coach Don Haskins, no less a stickler for X's and O's, relished the psychological message Lattin's emphatic basket had delivered. "[Haskins] was very strict about some things," said Orsten Artis, one of Texas Western's groundbreaking five black starters that day. "You couldn't go behind your back or between your legs.

Props To Duke, for hitting the road this week for games at Miami and Florida State. Of course, the Atlantic Coast Conference insists that Mike Krzyzewski take his team into actual opposing gymnasiums. The only remaining nonconference road game for the Blue Devils is Feb. 26 against St. John's at Madison Square Garden. Chops To anyone calling Villanova's 1985 NCAA title-game upset of Georgetown "the perfect game. " It was nearly the perfect shooting game, but the Wildcats had 17 turnovers in a game without a shot clock.

College basketball, above all else, is a coach's game. Players come and go, coaches remain. Coaches get most of the attention. They get the big money. They get the television shows. They get the sneaker contracts. They get the made-for-TV reputations. And many are getting out of control. "If you look at the sidelines, it seems like coaches are out of control, and 15 percent of the time, I think, they may be," said Lou Bonder, supervisor of officials for the Atlantic 10. "I've said for a long time that I think we should be restricted a whole lot more on the sidelines than we are," Arizona coach Lute Olson said.

BOBBY KNIGHT apparently doesn't realize that people actually listen to what he says. Yesterday, the former college basketball coach railed against the NBA in an appearance on ESPN radio's "Mike and Mike" show. And he used a poor choice of words when asked about Duke's Jabari Parker and Kansas' Andew Wiggins, freshmen who are headed to the NBA despite subpar performances in the NCAA Tournament. "If I were involved with the NBA I wouldn't want a 19-year-old or a 20-year-old kid, to bring into all the travel and all the problems that exist in the NBA," Knight said.

Yancy Gates scored a season-high 22 points as 24th-ranked Cincinnati extended the second-best start in school history, beating Xavier, 66-46, on Thursday night to regain the city's bragging rights. Cincinnati's 15-0 start matches the 1998-99 team for second-best in school history. The Musketeers (8-5) had won three in a row and eight of 11 in the series, which often gets overheated.

1. Already? You're not going to believe this, but we are more than halfway through the 2011-12 college basketball season, with only eight weeks (and one day) remaining before Selection Sunday. Syracuse, which started the season ranked fifth, is the No. 1 team and stands - with Baylor and Murray State - as one of three major unbeatens. At the other end, Towson, Binghamton, and Chicago State have yet to win a game, going a combined 0-49. Surprise teams to this point have been Indiana, Georgetown, UNLV, Seton Hall, and Murray State; while Pittsburgh, Memphis, and Xavier have been the most disappointing measured against expectations.

DUKE COACH Mike Krzyzewski can't deal with it. North Carolina's Roy Williams has been bitten in the rear by it. Kansas' Bill Self is soon to loathe it. But Kentucky's John Calipari, well, he has no problem with the one-and-done syndrome that has become a staple of college basketball. While other top programs have struggled in dealing with recruiting top-flight prospects who only make a quick pit stop on campus before bolting to the NBA draft, Coach Cal has turned managing it into a Final Four art form.

In the grand Gonzaga vision, Arizona would have gotten such a game from the Zags in their round-of-32 game in San Diego on Sunday night that perhaps they'd feel a little fear about a face-losing defeat as a No. 1 seed. Fear? The Zags mostly saw only fastbreaks, buzzing past them. And relentless defense. The top-seeded Wildcats ran the eighth-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs out of Viejas Arena, winning, 84-61, to advance to the NCAA regional semifinals up the freeway in Anaheim. "We love playing defense," freshman forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson said.

IN PHILADELPHIA, we have been blessed with a history of great college basketball and great college basketball coaches. Think about it: We've had true legends like Harry Litwack, John Chaney, Jack Kraft and Rollie Massimino and future NBA greats like Dr. Jack Ramsay and Chuck Daly. Our current crop of coaches is keeping up the tradition. In fact, for Jay Wright and Phil Martelli, the two local coaches whose teams reached the NCAA Tournament this year, this season could be said to be the best coaching jobs of their illustrious careers.
