You're looking for that last bit of karma entering today's games, that morsel of luck that might carry your team to the Sweet 16. We're here for you.

Typing a player or coach's name into a search engine and measuring popularity is far too practical a way to divine today's results. For something this scientific, we opt to type in a name, followed by .com, then pass along what shows up and how it might signal success or doom in today's second-round games.

We should point out, however, just because a site exists, that isn't always a good thing. Tampabasketball.com exists "to help you find Tampa, Florida, basketball news." But Saturday that did not include the NCAA Tournament. It's one of dozens of sites registered by the Boca Raton-based basketballadvertising.com, and before you get excited about Tampa's emergence as a basketball mecca, check out uticabasketball.com and binghamtonbasketball.com.

That said, here is a trip through some of the big names on our subregion's remaining teams, offering insights, however indirect they may seem ...

Mattbonner.com: No basketball here, but home to another talent with range -- a Dublin-based singer who "amalgamates genres of jazz, alt-rock and hip-hop." Karma? The guy is 6-foot-1, but his new CD is (gulp) called Signs of Passing.
