The Morning Mix

Apr 23, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

– Your must-read of the day comes from Mark Giannotto of the Washington Post, who wrote a brilliant article about the astonishingly high number of transfers in college hoops, and why we are likely to see even more in the future

-Speaking of transfers, Mike Huguenin put together a great list of guys who will be sorely missed by their former teams

– The law firm of Parrish & Goodman (Or is it Goodman & Parrish?) made their picks concerning the futures of high-profile underclassmen

– San Francisco lost five players already due to transferring, but the Dons have picked up a pair of high-profile transfers themselves

– Wake Forest transfer Tony Chennault is close to finalizing his decision to attend Villanova

– Highly touted big-man Tony Parker is supposed to make his college decision later today. But he’s already pushed it back like nine times, so you never know what could happen

– Gerardo Suero led the Albany Danes in scoring last season. In fact, he was ranked seventh in the country in scoring. But the 6-4 guard has decided to leave school after his junior year in order to pursue a professional career

– Wisconsin-transfer Jared Uthoff finally told his side of the story to Fox Sports Wisconsin. You should all know who Uthoff is by now. If not, you clearly were out of the country last week

Roscoe Smith is leaving UConn. He becomes the fifth player to depart the program this offseason

– Redshirt junior guard Mark Lyons has decided to transfer out of Xavier. Arizona is thought to be a possible landing point, considering that head coach Sean  Miller coached at Xavier before he took the job at Arizona

– Speaking of Arizona, Junior forward Jesse Perry was arrested on domestic violence charges over the weekend. That can’t be a good thing, not for Perry or the program. Two off-seasons ago there was a rash of domestic violence charges among college basketball players. Lets hope this isn’t the start of another one of those ugly streaks

North Carolina A&T found their new head coach.  Cy Alexander, who has coached at Tennessee State and South Carolina State, will lead an Aggies team that finished 12-20 last season

– If there’s one thing that Frank MArtin certainly isn’t at a loss for, it is confidence. When he took the K-State job after Bob Huggins, let, he was confident he could turn the program around, which he did. Now he’s confident he can do the same thing at South Carolina

– Kansas guard Elijah Johnson had successful arthroscopic knee surgery and will be good to go sometime in the summer

– Sam Cassell Jr. committed to Maryland, then decommitted from Maryland, but is now recommitting to Maryland – Another week, another post on why the “one and done” rule needs to go

– Could Anthony Davis become a member of the USA olympic team before ever playing in the NBA? With Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum out of the Olympics, Davis could become the first non-pro to suit up for Team USA since Christian Laettner in 1992. Speaking of Davis, he threw out the first pitch at the Kentucky/LSU baseball game on Sunday. He did significantly better than John Wall

– Who are considered the top ten Kentucky basketball players of the John Calipari era? – Peyton Siva and Gorgui Dieng are getting racehorses named after them. That’s kinda cool, I guess. I think

– Cardiac Hill, the entertaining and insightful Pitt Panthers blog, does a phenomenal job explaining the new NCAA student-athlete eligibility changes that will go into effect in 2015

– Florida’s Patric Young is more of a man than any of you reading this right now. Just take a look at his workout regime

– Here is video of Terrence Jones riding a mechanical bull, if you’re in to that sorta thing
