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?

★ Damn. I wanted to believe in Stanford.

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