Santa Claus is coming to town. // The final tweets of some famous people who've passed on. Kill me if Gaga or Kim K is part of my final digital burst to the world. // Some of the most beautiful libraries. // The tracking-Santa-on-Christmas-Eve is an entertaining thing. // And isn't this nice: an estimated $1.84 billion will get shoplifted this holiday season ...

Good idea for a CBB Tumblr.

★ Good look at teams playing freshmen a lot of minutes. No squad is overcoming being green like Georgetown.

★ The best dribbler in college hoops?

★ I had to drive to Hartford and cover UConn last night, so I've read very few things in today's Call. What I'm not nervous about sharing: Luke Winn's Power Rankings.

★ I thought we'd get through the week without hearing from Bobby Davis. I thought wrong.

★ Damn. I wanted to believe in Stanford.

★ If you missed my interactive timeline and column on Rick Pitino ...

★ ... read that, but then read John Gasaway's similar-but-different take on the Cards.

★ College players singing Christmas carols.

★ Pe'Shon Howard coming back today for Maryland and boy is that big.

★ Get to know Mississippi State's Dee Bost, who is undervalued right now, for sure.

★ You think you know why Creighton's good? You don't know until you read this.

★ What Florida needs to be asking from Santa.

► Here's Voltron (Florida's Patric Young) with one of the best blocks I've seen at the college level.



♬ This is THE DEFINITIVE CHRISTMAS SONG. In fact, it's the absolute best song to play at approximately 10:43 p.m. on Christmas Eve. It's not my favorite, but without question it's in the top three. I always wish the guitar solo was 15 or 20 seconds longer.
