• College Basketball: (5) Pitt 78, Northeastern 52. Pitt center Aaron Gray is 4 inches taller than anyone in the Northeastern starting lineup. That doesn't seem fair.
• NHL: Lightning 3, Islanders 2. Losing and blaming the refs... now that's a little more Islander-like.
• College Basketball: (19) Texas 77, St. John's 76. One day, the Johnnies lose to Maryland by 32... and the next, they lose to Texas by 1. Such is the volatile nature of these early-season basketball tournaments.
