JEFF TULLY I have been stricken with orange fever, a strange affliction that has me seeing Jaspers and Salukis, Spiders and Zags. However, although I admit I have become powerless over my addiction, I won't be running off to join a 12-step program any time soon. Instead, I will just sweat it out, knowing I will be rid of my demons come April 6. The powerful force that has me hooked is the NCAA men's basketball tournament. And since the event began March 18, I have been a fiend for the hoop action, feeding my ravenous appetite with hours spent in front of the television, and on the internet, absorbing everything I can about the tourney.

Jeff Tully Tyler Newton emerged from the locker room and scanned the bowels of the Anaheim Convention Center Arena, looking for friends and family. Just moments earlier, the Burroughs High graduate and University of the Pacific men's basketball player had experienced the worst loss of his career, as the Tigers were defeated by Utah State, 65-52, on Saturday in the Big West Tournament Championship. Exhausted, haggard and worried about the possibility of his team not earning a berth in the NCAA Tournament, the last thing Newton wanted was to deal with a reporter sticking a tape recorder in his face and asking him what went wrong.

Unfortunately, that practice of enshrining deserving men and women fell by the waste side for a long time. However, the ritual has been resurrected recently, and now deserving individuals have been getting their due. On Tuesday, three more Indians received their Hall pass.
