    We made it main story on B4. Big pic and full story however long it was. UK caching search was centerpiece, along with other local.

    Our place had an AP story on the bottom right corner of the sports cover. Other four items on the cover (two pro games, one Masters piece and a column) were all staff written.

    Strip overplay w/art. Podunk U, with their new lightning rod of a coach, was spring practicing that same day.

    Local rag (I don't work there, thankfully) put it on page 3. Put the men's game on page 3 too. Latter case an example of taking local a bit too far.

    We did about the same, and for mostly the same reasons. We had local stuff that day, but the only art we had for those stories were mugshots. I needed some big art, so I used the women's title game. I think I waited for the second or third writethrough on it.
    I held for the men's game the night before, but only long enough to get the first 7-10-incher on the page. I actually ran the Day 2 story from the men's championship on the inside (for shame!).

    We regularly staff UT games, so it was our CP.

    We ran it about 1.5 columns with art on section page. Story was about 10-12 inch APer. We're a paper in Michigan, and CP was story & a column on the hiring of John Beilein as Michigan basketball coach.

    Hey, but the JV soccer mothers are just thrilled with their front-page coverage. Everybody on the street is talking about it.
