EnergySolutions Arena, Salt Lake City

Sensing a theme here? When the Jazz beat San Antonio 99-96 in mid-December, the victory was very significant, mainly because of the way they had exited meekly against the Spurs in the NBA playoffs in May.

Mo Williams’ 3-pointer at the buzzer gave coach Tyrone Corbin the most meaningful win of his career and saved me from agony, after a late tipoff for ESPN.

Romney Stadium, Logan

Andersen was accommodating to the end. In what became my last interview with him in his USU tenure, regarding the Aggies’ 2011 comeback at Hawaii that truly launched the program’s turnaround, Andersen supplied complete details — right down to the song that accompanied the highlight video compiled by recruiting coordinator Zach Nyborg.

The song was "The Show Goes On," by rapper Lupe Fiasco.

I would say that title and the artist’s name provided a perfectly ironic ending to Andersen’s time at USU, amid the disillusionment about how he had announced he was staying in Logan. But at some point, folks around here are going to have to give Andersen credit for personally calling all 106 of his USU players to tell them why he was headed to Wisconsin. He didn’t have to do that.
