HOT: ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGHS

Colorado (23--11), behind the rebounding of André Roberson, and Colorado State (20--11) are both headed to the dance for the first time since 2003. Another Rocky Mountain peak moment? Free agent Peyton Manning's high-profile visit to the Broncos.

NOT: NOT OUT OF THE WOODS

Tiger withdrew from the WGC-Cadillac Championship on the 12th hole of the final round, blaming a bum left Achilles a day after saying his body "feels great." He was 10 shots out of the lead and headed for his worst finish at Doral.

HOT: MELK MAN DELIVERS

On his fourth team in four years, Giants new outfielder and lifetime .275 hitter Melky Cabrera is crushing the ball in spring training: Over seven games he's hitting .542 with three home runs, nine RBIs and a 1.625 OPS.

NOT: KNICKS FALL BACK TO EARTH

Is the Linsanity over? Looks like it for now. Sure, Jeremy Lin is still going strong—16.8 ppg, 8.1 apg in the last six games—but the Knicks (18--23) aren't; they'd lost five straight through Sunday and were clinging to the East's final playoff spot.

HOT: BEARING DOWN

The Grizzlies' seventh-ranked D smothered Denver on Sunday in a 94--91 win (their eighth in 10 games), as no Nugget had more than 15 points. The Memphis M.O.? Steals. Led by Mike Conley, the Grizz are grabbing an NBA-best 10.0 per game.
