The Spartans (26-11), the Tournament's lowest remaining seed, lost three of their top leading scorers from last season. The point guard is averaging 9.1 points and 2.7 assists and has committed just 16 turnovers in his past 10 games. The 6-8 player, who has declared his intention to enter the NBA draft in June, is as much a threat from 16 feet as he is dunking. The Spartans, who had back-to-back Final Four appearances in 2009 and '10, play a scrappy style that leans on defense and transition. The Spartans are motivated after losing to eventual champion Connecticut in last year's regional final.

[...] ship crash in less than a week causes halt to barge traffic after fuel additive spilled into waters The Houston Ship Channel was closed to all traffic Monday after two ships, including one carrying toxic chemicals, collided into each other at a narrow spot near the foggy entrance. The 600-foot Danish-flagged Carla Maersk was carrying about 216,000 barrels of MTBE, a fuel additive, while the 623-foot Conti Peridot is a steel carrier, U.S. Coast Guard officials said. Coast Guard officials said the hole in the ship remains but any remaining MTBE is below the waterline and doesn't pose a risk. The fuel additive is a colorless liquid with a distinctive anesthetic-like odor, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Fall Out Boy likely isn't the first act most folks think of to headline RodeoHouston. (Or the second, or the fifth.) But the band quickly adapted to its new surroundings. The set consisted of familiar hits ("Sugar, We're Goin' Down," "This Ain't a Scene, It's An Arms Race," "Dance, Dance") and songs from "American Beauty/American Psycho," the band's sixth studio album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year.
