The men's and women's college basketball seasons are just about coming to the end of the regular season. Meanwhile, the swimming and indoor track & field seasons are nearing the postseason.

Below are notable performances from three L-L alums in men's indoor track & field, two in women's indoor track & field, nine in women's basketball and 15 in men's basketball. Oh, and one in women's lacrosse, as some lacrosse teams got their seasons underway over the weekend.
