It's the 10-year anniversary of Nicholas dribbling nearly the length of the court to hit his shot — seen here http://bit.ly/9583bK — so it's kind of fitting that he's getting some more March glory, albeit it on a much smaller scale.
Drew played in Europe from 2003-12 and has returned to start a career as a TV and radio analyst. He entered the Post's bracket as a fan.
LOYAL PIZZA CEO
Domino's is the official pizza of March Madness, but the company's CEO did not fill out a bracket because of deep-rooted bias.
"I did not, and usually don't, because I'm just kind of a rabid fan of one team, and I hate filling out anything that doesn't wind up with University of Michigan winning at the end," Patrick Doyle told AP Business Writer Christina Rexrode.
Doyle attended Michigan, his predecessor, Dave Brandon, is the Wolverines' athletic director and Domino's is based in Ann Arbor, so it's no surprise that his loyalties run so deep.
Doyle even stayed in the same dorm with the basketball players, including Roy Tarpley, during his freshman year.
"I remember feeling extremely short — and I'm 6-4," Doyle said.
But Rexrode didn't just talk to Doyle about college hoops. She couldn't resist asking him about this, uh, guy? from the '80s, the Noid: http://bit.ly/10jeh9h
"He was a big part of Domino's history. I don't think there's anybody around here that doesn't have a warm spot for the Noid," Doyle said.
We're going to leave that one alone.

STAT OF THE DAY
La Salle has taken a roundabout road to Los Angeles for its West Region semifinal game against Wichita State.
The Explorers were one of the First Four teams and opened in Dayton, Ohio, a trip of 539 miles. From there, La Salle went 598 miles to Kansas City and now has a 1,617-mile trip to LA to play in the Staples Center.
That's a total of 2,754 miles.
Hopefully they're getting airline miles with it.
