Tom Izzo and Rick Pitino are Final Four regulars, and one of them will be back this year even though both of their teams were counted out weeks ago. Seventh-seeded Michigan State and fourth-seeded Louisville meet Sunday to settle the NCAA Tournament's most-busted bracket. The Spartans (26-11), the tournament's lowest remaining seed, lost three of their top leading scorers from last season. ''I think adversity always makes you strong.'' The Cardinals, seeking their third Final Four berth in four years, are led by junior do-everything forward Montrezl Harrell, who is averaging 15.7 points and 9.2 rebounds.

Gonzaga and coach Mark Few have been a constant presence in the NCAA Tournament, even if the loveable Zags rarely get this deep into March Madness. The Bulldogs were a No. 1 seed only two years ago when they got upset in the second round, and who can forget floppy-haired big-scoring Adam Morrison nearly a decade ago - yep, back in 2006, when the trendy pick blew an early 17-point lead in a Sweet 16 loss to UCLA. Now they are a win away from their first Final Four, with omnipresent Duke and Coach K's top-seeded Blue Devils (32-4) up next Sunday in the South Regional final. ''Probably the highest compliment I could pay him is literally everything we've tried to do at Gonzaga, we always ask, 'What did Duke do here?''' Few said.


Indiana governor plans to 'clarify' religious objections lawRick Barnes says he wanted to stay as Texas coach (Yahoo Sports)

Thousands of opponents of Indiana Senate Bill 101, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, gathered on the lawn of the Indiana State House to rally against that legislation Saturday, March 28, 2015.

Mike Pence defended the new state law that's garnered widespread criticism over concerns it could foster discrimination and said Sunday it wasn't a mistake to have enacted it.

An emotional Rick Barnes fought back tears in saying goodbye to Texas after 17 years Sunday, insisting he's grateful for his time with Longhorns and isn't bitter about being fired. ''The wins and losses are fleeting, but it's the relationships that matter,'' Barnes said at a 40-minute farewell news conference. We've been blessed as a staff here to have so many players who have affected our lives.'' But Barnes also revealed that he had been told by athletic director Steve Patterson that he would be back for another season after Texas lost to Butler in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

PM: 'Dangerous accord' with Iran worse than Israel fearedSurvived: No. 1 Kentucky holds off Notre Dame 68-66 (Yahoo Sports)

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu renews his denunciations of an Iranian nuclear dealIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday denounced as "dangerous" a nuclear accord that world powers are negotiating with Iran, saying it goes beyond what his government had feared. "The dangerous accord which is being negotiated in Lausanne (Switzerland) confirms our concerns and even worse," Netanyahu said in remarks at a meeting of his cabinet broadcast on public radio. The premier warned that Iran could be in a position to "conquer" the Middle East through what he called the "axis" of control it has over the capitals of Iraq, Lebanon and Syria. Netanyahu angered the White House when he addressed a joint session of the Congress to warn against a nuclear deal with Iran in the lead-up to Israel's March 17 general election.

With everything at stake, Kentucky didn't panic and played to perfection. The Wildcats made clutch shots, buckled down on fearless Notre Dame and kept their unblemished season intact. Andrew Harrison made two free throws with six seconds remaining, and the unbeaten Wildcats made their last nine shots to survive their toughest test to date, coming back after trailing for much of the second half to defeat the Fighting Irish 68-66 on Saturday night in the Midwest Regional final. ''We know our will to win,'' said Aaron Harrison, who hit a crucial 3-pointer.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
