Tar Heels upset Duke.

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

March 6, 2006 | 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

Syracuse was the 9th seed but came through with wins over Cincinnati, Connecticut, Georgetown and Pittsburgh to win the Big East tournament.

Kansas won the Big 12 championship, Iowa captured the Big Ten tournament, both beating the top seeds in the finals.

Mike Krzyzewski coached in his 1000th college game Sunday, a hard-fought win over Boston College in the ACC championship.

The Sacramento Kings have won four straight games as they make a push for a playoff spot.

Edgerrin James got a lot of cash, baby, signing as a free agent with the Arizona Cardinals. Look at that offense now with Kurt Warner, Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald teaming with James.

The Detroit Red Wings are 8-2 in their last 10 games.

STOCK DOWN

USA baseball was upset by Canada, 8-6. The American squad then rebounded to advance to the second round, where Alex Rodriguez had the game-winning hit against Japan Sunday.

David Wells ripped commissioner Bud Selig again. Enough already.

The New York Rangers have lost five straight games, scoring just six goals in that span.

The New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets have dropped six straight games.
