The article presents information on developments related to college basketball in the U.S. This is not a projection but a prediction: The Big East will get only seven of its 16 teams into the National Collegiate Athletic Association Tournament. And a lot of people will be very unhappy when that occurs. There's a simple explanation for Oklahoma University's resurgence. Shooting guard Michael Neal no longer is launching everything he touches. He was 15-of-26 from the field in a three-game stretch capped by an enormous home victory against Texas. That kind of efficiency could restore the team as a Final Four threat.
