special early wednesday hoops recap:
+first of all, it's starting to look like duke really is this good. they beat virginia 104-93 at cameron indoor, but the game was actually much closer than that. the cavs may just be 1-2 in conference play, but they're 10-4 overall and are a very good team. duke was simply that much better tonight - and perhaps all season?
+can you believe that mississippi state is 0-3 sec? they are, after being beat by alabama 68-62. who's gonna step up and stop the bleeding? pat forde, btw, has written a nice companion to shelman's piece - forde's discusses the night-in, night-out struggle in the sec this season.
+in the big ten, the hoosiers bounced back to beat northwestern 71-57, while iowa proved that they're a very legitmate conference threat, upsetting the illini 68-61. why aren't the hawkeyes ranked?! [something tells me they will be next week.] [note: game recap unavailable at press time; to be posted thursday morning.]
+ol' bow tie himself, mount st. mary's coach jim phelan, will announce thursday his decision to retire at season's end. he has the most victories of any active college coach, 824 and counting.
+and speaking of victories, one day after the phenomenal pat summitt notched her 800th, geno's girls made a record of their own. with their "w" over seton hall, the lady huskies have now tied the alltime women's record, winning 54 straight. sole possession of the mark could come saturday at home vs. georgetown.
