    Rolling Northwestern dreaming of 1st NCAA Tournament berth

    EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) — Bryant McIntosh is close enough he can see it when he closes his eyes. They all can, up and down the coaching staff and throughout the roster.

No team has won more Super Bowls than the Steelers with six titles in the 50-year history of the event. Few franchises have been around for so long with so little accolade as the Arizona Cardinals, who date back to St. Louis and Chicago.

Simply mentioning "back surgery" and "Mike Kryzyzewski" in the same sentence is enough to give even the most dedicated Duke fan _ or hater _ a flashback to 1994-95. With Kryzyzewski sidelined for the final 19 games of that year, those Blue Devils finished 13-18 and became the only Duke team since 1983 to miss the NCAA Tournament. (AP Photo/John Bazemore, File)
