GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The night grew deep in this southern city but Geno Auriemma did not want to stop talking. It was obvious that this trip to the Final Four meant more to him than other years. "We don't have all the answers to every question like we have had in some years," he said. "We struggle at times, just like other teams struggle. This particular team didn't get to the Final Four on talent and experience and having three or four All-Americas. This team got there on a lot of the intangibles that make you appreciate coaching. How far they have come as a group makes this probably the most rewarding one of all."

Dear Annie: My boss, who is also a longtime mentor and friend, will be retiring at the end of the year, and he's trying to help me position myself to take over his job. He's been telling me that, if I want to keep moving up, I have to do a better job of self-promotion -- that is, I have to try harder to make sure that higher-ups in the company are aware of my accomplishments. The trouble is, I was raised not to blow my own horn, and it's very hard for me to boast about what I've done, especially when other team members deserve some of the credit. Do you have any suggestions? -- Mr. Modesty
Dear FSB: I own a small graffiti-removal business and have more than 16 years' experience in this specialty.

The spring flower of the new baseball season is the arrival of box scores in the back pages of the daily sports section, at least for those of us still wedded to newsprint and the national pastime. The spring flower of the PGA Tour also comes from a newspaper: the arrival of David Westin of The Augusta Chronicle, accompanied by a sidekick, for back-to-back Florida tournaments, gathering string for scores of Masters-week stories. Nick Price once greeted Westin with this: "Here he is -- the face of spring." Which is funny, because Westin's newsroom nickname is The Ghost.
