    Ticket prices on the secondary market are substantially higher for the women's Final Four than for the men. The women play in a much smaller venue. They also have more recognizable names in the their Final Four. Only UConn on the men's side is anything close to a traditional power. An all-session ticket for the women's Final Four was at least $475 on StubHub and $335 on Vivid Seats before fees. Men's all-sessions tickets were going for at least $65 and $66.

      The college basketball season started with familiar faces and ended up with an unexpected Final Four. North Carolina was the preseason No. 1-ranked team only to miss the NCAA Tournament. Fellow bluebloods like Duke and Kentucky all fell out of the rankings at points. And reigning champion Kansas was among the first No. 1 seeds to fall short of making even the NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight.

John McEnroe, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and Michael Chang are retired tennis stars with 17 Grand Slam wins among them. But Sunday they will be on the other side ...

          Baylor’s decision to let Kim Mulkey walk across the states lines over to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is the rare instance where it’s perfectly reasonable, and embarrassingly indefensible. The Outfit is back in Texas, doing her “thang.” The NCAA women’s Final Four is in Dallas this weekend, and Mulkey is there. In her second season at LSU, the Tigers are in the Final Four.

          As Kentucky opened its spring football practice back on March 6, Mark Stoops said this about 2022: “There were probably things I could’ve done better, going all the way back to last winter.
