ESPN's Joe Lunardi predicts his top NCAA Tournament seeds
This would be as close to an ideal draw for the Jayhawks as possible. With Maryland as Kansas’ No. 2 seed, the Jayhawks would have a team that is like Kansas — star point guard, star big man, better defensively than offensively — but worse on both sides of the court. The potential bugaboo for this Kansas team is a team in a one-off setting that takes and makes a lot of 3-pointers. So avoiding Creighton and Louisville, two teams that rank in the nation’s top 20 in 3-point field goal percentage as a No. 3 seed is key, too, even if Kentucky figures to pack out Indianapolis with fans in a potential Elite Eight matchup.

Harrison Ford’s ‘Call of the Wild’ to Lose $50 Million at Box Office – Variety
The film, based on Jack London’s best-selling novel, has made $45 million in the U.S. and $79 million globally after two weeks in theaters. That wouldn’t be a bad result, had “The Call of the Wild” cost a moderate amount to make and market. However, it carries a price tag above $125 million, meaning the film needs to make between $250 million and $275 million to break even, according to sources close to the production and rival studio executives. Given the unlikeliness that it’ll reach those ticket sales, “The Call of the Wild” is expected to lose around $50 million. TSG co-financed the film, which will help mitigate damages for Disney.
