UNC lost Sunday’s ACC title game to Florida State 85-82, as because Henson missed the game with a sore left wrist. North Carolina coach Roy Williams said he expects Henson to return Friday against Lamar or Vermont.
Duke, a No. 2 seed in South, also missed a key player over the weekend. Forward Ryan Kelly missed the ACC tournament because of a sprained right foot.
Neither Duke nor Ohio State, a No. 2 seed in the East, should be counted out of making a deep tournament run. Kansas, the Big 12 regular season champ, is a strong No. 2 in the Midwest behind All-American Thomas Robinson and point guard Tyshawn Taylor.
Missouri’s Tigers, with a new coach in Frank Haith and only seven scholarship players, issued a reminder that they are in the midst of a memorable final season in the Big 12 (they will head to the SEC in July) by beating Baylor for the league tournament title.
“Some people would say we’re small,” senior Kim English said. “I say we’re fast. Some people would say we don’t have depth inside. I would say we have most efficient big man in the country (in Ricardo Ratliffe).”
As for those who question whether a team with a short-handed roster can muster the stamina to reach the Final Four, English said, “Words are irrelevant. We can shoot.”

As if it were just learning on each of us.
That’s from Miracle Fair, Selected Poems of Wislawa Szymborska, which I bought used on Saturday at Half-Price Books on North Lamar along with another collection, View with a Grain of Sand. I’ve not had much chance to flip through them, but the cat poem quoted in her New York Times obituary last week sold me – and I’ve never even dreamed of owning a cat! – written from the feline perspective, after its owner has died:
Dying – You can’t do that to a cat.Since what can a cat doin an empty apartment.
The simplicity of Szymborska’s (shim-bor-ska) expression – translated into English as it is – lilts an obvious conversational whimsy, demure but direct. Brain whisperer, that’s the poet, turning words we use daily into a unique stream of consciousness through emotion. If every picture tells a story (don’t it?), the best poetry is metaphysical microfiche.
This Thursday’s Music reissues crossed paths with my introduction to Szymborska and the reminder that less can be still always more, especially in the daily scroll of ...

I want dirt,” she said.
Virgina Culver grew up in Eads in Kiowa County. She began her newspaper career on Nov. 25, 1963, as the city editor for the Lamar Daily News. She covered all the night meetings, took her own pictures, wrote her own headlines and even filled in for the sports editor when he was “on a toot.”
It was during one of the sports editor’s drinking binges that Culver made one of her funniest newspaper mistakes.
“I had to rewrite some sports handout about bowling. I didn’t know anything about bowling,” she said. “They were having scotch doubles at the bowling alley. I wrote they were serving scotch doubles.”
Then there was the story about the mill-levy increase. Culver wrote the headline for her story, warning of an 86 percent increase. The boss asked if she was sure. Here’s the figures I used, she said. They took them to the accounting department for a quick review. It turns out it was an 0.086 percent increase.
“We had to stop the presses,” she said, with a laugh.
Culver began her career at The Denver Post on Sept. 11, 1967 in what was known then as the “women’s department.” The next year she began covering the religion beat and married the city editor, John Snyder. He was an assistant managing editor when he died nearly six years later. She never remarried.
Over the years Culver has given many of her colleagues — especially her editors — nicknames to make it easier to openly talk about them. Her moniker was “The Rev” or “Reverend” or even “God.”
One of the many stories circulating about Culver is the time an editor and some muckety muck were sitting at a Broncos game at Mile High Stadium one Sunday. Culver, coming down the steps with a tray full of beers, acknowledged her boss. “That’s...
