If you want the best odds of getting a job after graduation, don't major in architecture.
Authorities have arrested two Georgetown University students and another person in connection with a suspected drug lab found inside a dormitory Saturday morning, the Metropolitan Police Department said.

After Sunday night's first go-through, even with fairly generous standards of inclusion, there were still 10 at-large spots available. Yet, this week's bracket has only six teams from outside the BCS football conferences. And of those six, four are from the Mountain West and Atlantic 10, maybe half a step down in basketball financial commitment but no less ambitious.

In many places across the South you can walk in the footsteps of slaves, and if you understand the history, it is not a happy journey. The same is true at Friendfield Plantation outside Georgetown, South Carolina.
CNN's Joe Johns reports on the roots of Michelle Obama ... a slave plantation in coastal South Carolina.
All the stars will be there – and here's where to find them
Here's what I see as I cross the intersection of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue: a sleek woman in to-die-for jeans speaking a language I can't pin down; an iPod-toting jogger with shopping bags from a tony store; a model (or she should be) in knee-high boots and a thigh-high skirt. It's like a well-cast movie -- all the elements fit like a study in big-city fashion.
Now's a prime time to enjoy a cozy bed-and-breakfast. Whether you want to trek a nature trail or shop along a dock, these places offer a great escape.
This might seem like the year of the evil stepsisters in the NCAA tournament. All four No. 1 seeds got a spot in the Final Four.
"Ten years ago, there was almost nothing here," says Chris Damon of the view from his office window.
Greetings, Hoop Thinkers. Like you, I am still recovering from a wondrous four days of wall-to-wall hoops. When you get down to the Sweet 16, you just gotta rip and run. Herewith my thoughts on the week that was and the one about to be:
Those who rooted for Davidson, those who graduated from Davidson, those who picked Davidson to reach the Sweet 16 in their office pool had already come down from the rush of their victory celebration an hour earlier, after the Wildcats' 74-70 upset of Georgetown, when the instigator for all this Davidson love emerged one final time from the bowels of the RBC Center in Raleigh. Stephen Curry was, at last, freed from his postgame media obligations so, along with four teammates, he walked back to the floor level of the arena to watch North Carolina play Arkansas in the day's second game. The five Wildcats were showered with a thunderous standing ovation, Tar Heels and Razorbacks faithful included. Curry was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt that on the front had the following word prominently displayed: bracketbusters.

There's a new No. 1 in the college hoops world, but it's not North Carolina's fault. With Saturday's suffocation of Georgetown, Memphis supplanted the undefeated Tar Heels in the Power Rankings' top spot.
College hoops turns the corner into the conference home-stretch this evening, and as much as we think we've learned from the first two months of the season, it's not enough. The final Associated Press poll of December 2006 is evidence of just how worthless early-season assessments can be. No one considered that Top 25 to be a total abomination at the time, and yet there was one future NIT team (Alabama) in the top 10 and three more (Oklahoma State, Air Force and Clemson) scattered below.
Merv Lopes, 75 now, still wades into the Pacific off the Big Island of Hawaii to throw a cast net. He loves fishing for the sheer lottery of it, for never knowing exactly what he'll take in -- yet he's as sure as the tides that he'll eventually catch the big one. "And after you catch the big one," he says, "you never stop talking about it."
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Sutton's Drug Store on Franklin Street is an 84-year-old UNC institution: a real pharmacy with a time-warp of a lunch counter in the back. Greasy burgers hiss on the grill, the milkshakes take a while to serve because they're handmade, and the soda comes from an authentic fountain. Autographed jerseys of Tar Heels past hang from the ceiling, and hundreds of pictures of dignified patrons serve as a sort of nostalgic wallpaper print. Current Carolina point guard Tywon Lawson occupies one of the swivel chairs at the counter, sitting over a vanilla shake and engaging in an activity that's just about the antithesis of retro: He's showing off a Lil' Wayne YouTube that he has queued up on his iPhone.
Using a Facebook profile, police arrested a suspect in an attack on the Georgetown University campus.
In Georgetown, Ky., a stone's throw from Lexington, the central part of the state, and in the middle of horse country. Great setup for the Bengals here. Four excellent practice fields, a nice, small college stadium and condo-type dormitories 200 yards from the main field. Slightly more comfy than when I covered the Bengals for the Cincinnati Enquirer at Wilmington (Ohio) College in 1984. Back then, I spent many an oppressively humid night in the non-air conditioned dorms in the middle of corn country.
Lately, my local Starbucks baristas have started suggesting specific pastries to go with my tea, and consequently I've developed a lasting relationship with cinnamon-swirl coffee cake. In other words, I've been upsold.
Aimee Mullins is awesome. And not just in the colloquial sense -- she is truly awe-inspiring. She's been named one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World. She graduated from Georgetown University in 1998 with a dual degree in history and diplomacy. As a model, she has walked runways in London and Paris. An aspiring actress, she has performed on both television and in movies.
Every NBA Draft brings quality players into the league. Spending a lot of energy and brain power trying to figure out if this is "the strongest draft ever" or merely "the best draft since 2003" is a wasted exercise. One thing is for certain: It's not as deep a draft as it was before likely first-rounders in Georgetown's Roy Hibbert, Kansas' Brandon Rush and Croatia's Ante Tomic withdrew for various reasons.
I present the first, post-draft-deadline Power Rankings, based on a few educated guesses: Georgetown's Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert, Kansas' Brandan Rush and Julian Wright and Georgia Tech's Thaddeus Young will stay in, while Texas A&M's Joseph Jones, USC's Gabe Pruitt and Marquette's Dominic James will come back.
The birth certificate from the Democratic Republic of Congo makes him out to be 40-years-old. But his NBA colleagues have long joked that the document must be forged because Dikembe Mutombo is years older than that. The punch line? That comes when Mutombo laughs along: Eyes squinting, cheeks bursting, his laughter fills the room like music in a jazz club, and he looks young enough to be a student at Georgetown all over again.
Assuming that Florida's Corey Brewer, Taurean Green, Al Horford and Joakim Noah, Georgetown's Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert, Kansas's Brandon Rush, North Carolina's Brandan Wright, Ohio State's Greg Oden, Texas's Kevin Durant, UCLA's Arron Afflalo and USC's Nick Young all jump to the NBA, this is how next season's rankings shape up.
The NCAA tournament may have been a showcase for the Florida Gators to win their second consecutive championship, but it also provided the final national stage for collegians to impress their potential future employer, the NBA. Given that everyone this side of Mars agrees that Ohio State's Greg Oden and Texas' Kevin Durant will be the top two draft picks should they choose to leave college after one year, SI.com spoke to an NBA scout to ascertain who else helped improve their draft stock -- and who didn't -- throughout the 2006-07 college season.

ATLANTA -- At 1:30 p.m. Friday, the doors to Ohio State's Georgia Dome locker room opened, and a not-so-small army of reporters and cameramen immediately bolted to the near-right corner to surround a particular 7-foot center. At that point, mind you, I could not have told you for certain that the subject at the center of this paparazzi was in fact Greg Oden, because, unfortunately, I was stuck in about the eighth row of the circle.

ATLANTA -- I love the sweat suit guys. Every year they show up at the Final Four in the same uniform, the masses of assistant coaches from Stetson and Humboldt State and Cal Poly wearing their schools across their chests like a nametag.
ON BOARD DELTA FLIGHT 621 TO ATLANTA -- Time to fire it up, folks: The Final Four is upon us, and I haven't been this hyped about the national-semifinal matchups since, well, since ever. We'll have five things for you to ponder tomorrow, but for now here's one big thing to think about (while wondering why so many people drink in airports at 9 a.m. on a weekday):
It's Final Four week, Hoop Thinkers. Time to rip it and run:
UCLA guard Arron Afflalo can close his eyes and conjure every detail, a vision from a childhood spent launching imaginary three-pointers in his family's Compton, Calif., living room: Monday night, final seconds, down two, 50,000 fans watching in the seats and millions more on TV. In his mind's eye he curls off a screen, catches a pass on the wing, jab-steps to freeze his defender and unspools a rainbow three pregnant with possibility. Splash. "Man, that would be so sweet," Afflalo says, opening his eyes and smiling at the thought of UCLA's 12th national title. "But I wouldn't be surprised. I'd expect it to go in. You have to think that way if you're going to make a shot like that."
There is an interesting concept in sports I like to call "The Improssible." It's something slightly more than improbable, but slightly less than impossible. Like the Knicks winning a playoff series within the next few years.
1. Peyton Manning hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend. Apparently he was difficult to work with. He insisted on preparing multiple scripts for each sketch, then choosing the premise just before the sketch started depending on what look the audience was giving.

If you happen to run into a member of the NCAA selection committee this week, be sure to shake his hand or pat him on the back. A few complimentary words would be nice, too. Considering how much flak these guys usually take this time of year, a rare acknowledgement of a job well done will undoubtedly be appreciated.
WINSTON-SALEM -- If you didn't know it was the NCAA tournament and the venue was Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem, you'd have sworn it was the Big East Tournament and a cozy little joint called Madison Square Garden.
March madness finally came to Sacramento on Saturday. After a mostly sleep-inducing quartet of first-round games in which the margins of victory were 13, 16, 28 and 33 points, respectively, Washington State and Vanderbilt played an edge-of-your-seat double-overtime thriller that featured everything from clutch three-point shooting to game-saving blocked shots. Vanderbilt won it, 78-74, but the real winners were the spectators in Arco Arena who will tell you that they saw the game of the tournament so far.
You may have read recently that the ever-savvy NFL is attempting to trademark the phrase "The Big Game" in an effort to reap whatever remaining Super Bowl-related money in which they're not already swimming.
KEVIN DURANT, F, Texas Super freshman ranks fourth nationally in scoring (25.6), fourth in rebounds (11.3) and has scored 30-plus in 10 games.
Underrated: Texas The fourth-seeded 'Horns are as formidable as all the No. 3s -- and even a couple of No. 2s -- in the bracket. Skinny wunderkind Kevin Durant (25.6 points, 11.3 rebounds per game, unlimited entertainment) strikes fear into the hearts of opposing defenders. Durant will be on a chest-thumping scoring mission in his one-and-done farewell tour; he and freshman point guard D.J. Augustin lead a free-wheeling, Phoenix Suns-style offense that ranks fourth nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency. UT is glaringly inexperienced, starting four freshmen and one sophomore, but the green-Horns play fearlessly, and that's what makes them dangerous.
NEW YORK -- Eric Devendorf admits he's been a little nervous lately about his team's NCAA tournament status.
It's February, which means the 'Bag has reached the point where we've been on the road long enough that we have no idea where we are in the morning when the alarm clock goes off. Yet, there are indeed benefits to so much travel, not least picking up those little nuggets that you can only learn on the road. To wit:
Picking a new No. 1, now that Wisconsin has gone down, isn't easy. There's only one school left in the four highest-rated RPI leagues (ACC, SEC, Pac-10 and Big Ten) that's undefeated in league play -- and that team, Florida, also hasn't lost since Dec. 3. What about the tear North Carolina is on, though? The Heels have won their past five games by an average of 27 points, making an equally strong case.
