1. Miami coach Perry Clark is on thin ice. Just 4,025 fans showed
up at Miami's Convocation Center last Saturday to watch the
Hurricanes lose their seventh straight game, 91-74 to Syracuse,
dropping their record to 13-12.

2. Florida needs to get tougher. During their 73-70 home loss to
LSU on Saturday, the Gators shot just eight free throws compared
with LSU's 28 and were outplayed down the stretch.

3. The Pac-10 will probably get only two NCAA tournament bids.
Since 1988 the league has never placed fewer than three teams,
but Cal (11-10) and Oregon (12-7), who were tied for third place,
are likely headed for the NIT.
