HEAT KEEN ON HOOPS, FROZEN FOUR, AND GREEN JACKETS

Not surprising that pro athletes are sports fans themselves. Perhaps it gets the competitive juices flowing, or maybe they grew up playing other sports they still love and watch with fervour. For the Heat, Spring means great tournaments for team pools, bonding and locker room banter.

Two NCAA sports, hockey and basketball, crown their national champions in the Spring, while arguably the most compelling golf tournament of the year takes place in Augusta, GA – the Masters. Heat players have paid especially close attention to these events of late with locker room bragging rights on the line.

Brett Carson was crowned the winner of the NCAA basketball bracket earlier this week when Louisville (his pick) won the 'Final Four' over Michigan. Carson takes over the hard court title from Carter Bancks who won last year but fell early with Gonzaga's misfortunes this season. "He had it locked up going into the Final Four" stated forward Ben Walter of Carson's bracket. "He was the only team that had Michigan getting to the Final Four, and he picked Louisville too."

Defenders Joe Callahan and Mike Matczak are walking proud of late as Yale Bulldogs alumni. "They're pretty confident" notes Walter as the duo's former team is one of just four teams remaining in the Frozen Four NCAA hockey championship set to conclude this weekend in Pittsburgh. Ditto for Ben Walter's U-Mass Lowell River Hawks, though, much to his surprise. "Especially after two seasons ago, they had just five wins, but they've got a new coach and I think they've only got one or two seniors on the team." Walter suggests there will be some trash talk as the two face off in one of the two semi-finals this weekend.

As for the Masters? Well, the group are doing draft after practice today. It won't be tough to guess what they'll be watching on TV this weekend!
