Leaving Las Vegas
By Diamond Leung
LAS VEGAS -- I'm headed home for Selection Sunday after three days at the Mountain West Conference, but I realize many of you will be coming to Sin City for the first round of the NCAA tournament and might want to check this out.
On Wednesday, the city and county is proclaiming it "Tark the Shark Day" in honor of Jerry Tarkanian, who coached UNLV to a national title 20 years ago.
Tarkanian, who was on hand last night to watch the Rebels fall in the MWC tournament title game, will be on hand at a free event that evening at the Tropicana to give play-by-play reaction to a rebroadcast of the 1990 NCAA championship game.
