Stock watch: Week in review

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

March 24, 2008 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP
• How about a salute to the Cinderellas at the big dance? Villanova, Western Kentucky and Davidson were double-digit seeds and they are in the Sweet 16. Stephen Curry has scored 70 points in two games and the Wildcats needed every one of them.

• LeBron James became the Cavaliers' all-time scoring leader. Not bad at age 23.

• The Phoenix Suns have warmed up, winning seven straight games as Amare Stoudemire has been on fire.

STOCK DOWN
• Roger Federer lost to American Mardy Fish in the semifinals of the Pacific Life tournament.

• Ex-Steelers wide receiver Cedrick Wilson was involved in a physical incident with his estranged girlfriend. That is why he is now a former member of the Steelers.

• The Miami Heat scored a mere 54 points in a game vs. Toronto earlier this week. The Heat has won just three of its last 26 games.

• The Seattle Sonics have dropped 11 in a row.
