Chuck Solomon/SI

Each day during the noon hour, we'll offer five reading recommendations from around the Web.

1. The Man Derek Jeter Should Envy (By Reed Albergotti, The Wall Street Journal): By numbers alone, the charismatic Yankee captain isn't the greatest New York-area athlete of his generation.

2. The Year of Magical Shooting (By Tommy Craggs, Slate): How Davidson's Stephen Curry became a basketball folk hero.

3. That wasn't just a basketball game in the Garden; it was a 6-OT masterpiece (By Bud Poliquin, The Post-Standard): Finding some perspective in the wake of Thursday's six-overtime epic.

4. Horrific yet rewarding season comes to an end (By Bob Kravitz, Indianapolis Star): Thankfully, blessedly, mercifully, Indiana University's historically bad season is over. But it wasn't without its positives.

5. Ethnicity matters in detecting steroid use (By Shari Roan, Los Angeles Times): "Swiss researchers are calling for an end to the current steroid doping tests used in international sports because the tests do not account for genetic differences among various ethnic groups and may be inaccurate."
