CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- For my money, the first week is always the best week of the NCAA tournament, not least because there are so many games being played all the time. And while that's not the case in week two (which is why we're giving you some good reading links below to pass the time between games), I'm still psyched to be in Charlotte, the most stacked regional I've covered in years.

The Jazz has reached the Western Conference finals, its furthest incursion into the postseason since 1998, when S&M lost to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls in the Finals.
SAN ANTONIO -- Are the Utah Jazz too young to win the championship this year? We'll find out Tuesday night.
PHOENIX -- The result was marked by high drama and inevitability. Bit by bit the visiting Spurs had worked off a 16-point deficit to the undermanned Suns, who used a six-man rotation, until Tony Parker in his best impersonation of Steve Nash sliced through the defense to find Bruce Bowen in the right corner for the three that gave San Antonio an 84-81 advantage, its first lead since the first quarter.
Welcome to the NBA Finals. The league has thoughtfully fast-tracked its premier event to end the drama a month earlier than usual. Lord knows it's not to beat the heat (or, for that matter, the Heat, which is already beat), because this potential championship series is being contested in the high-mercury venues of Phoenix and San Antonio. But given the level of play in Sunday's opener between the Suns and the Spurs, it sure seems as if the eventual champion will come out of their Western Conference semifinal.

The Mavs, who took down the Suns last Thursday on Dirk Nowitzki's last-second shot, have returned to the top spot they owned for several weeks earlier this season.
