ABSTRACT
The article presents information on developments related to college basketball in the U.S. In getting seven at-large teams into the National Collegiate Athletic Association Basketball Tournament from 1999 to 2004, the Missouri Valley Conference benefited from the large separation between its best teams and the rest. Kentucky University's SG Patrick Sparks, who averaged 11.0 points in his first season with the team, played six consecutive games without reaching double figures and shot just 3-of-21 from the field in a four-game stretch at the end of this season's preconference schedule.
