Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. THE LIST IS GROWING

Kings coach Terry Murray (above) now says he exaggerated when he said being booed at a home game was "the most embarrassing thing I have ever been through." He declined to reveal his list of much more embarrassing moments.

2. NOT-SO-CROWDED HOUSE

Cowboys Stadium hosted a women's college lacrosse game Saturday featuring Northwestern vs. William & Mary. This time, there were no reports of fans receiving refunds after fire marshalls refused to seat them in their purchased seats.

3. IT WASN'T WORTH IT

MMA fighter Jon Jones and his two trainers chased down and captured a robber they saw breaking into a car over the weekend. After receiving a series of punches and kicks, the crook reportedly begged to be taken to a nice, safe jail cell.

4. SAME CINDERELLA STORY

It took a few days, but we discovered who this year's version of 2010 national runner-up Butler in the NCAA basketball tournament is: Butler.

5. LESSON NEEDED

The National Christian School Athletic Association women's basketball championship ended early in a bench-clearing brawl with both teams disqualified from winning the title. The next morning, the prayer breakfast for both schools entitled "turning the other cheek" was cancelled.
