The Morning Mix

May 9, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

- Your must-read-story-of-the-day comes from Steve Kerr. Yup, that’s right, five-time NBA Champion Steve Kerr. He urges the NBA to institute a 20-year-old age limit for the draft. Make sure you have time to read this

- You have to read this too: Pete Thamel tells us the the NCAA has travelled to Massachusetts to inquire about Nerlens Noel’s eligibility

- You all remember the Guerdwich Montimore/Jerry Joseph saga, right? Well even if you don’t, make sure you read Dave Telep’s take. He saw both of them on the AUU circuit. More importantly, make sure you read the Outside The Lines piece. This may be the most bizarre hoops-related story we’ve ever seen, and OTL does a phenomenal job detailing the saga

- Chad Ford ranks the NBA draft entrants by position (I could read stuff like this all day)

- Jimmy Kimmel is using his celebrity status to held UNLV land Anthony Bennett. It should be noted that this may be a potential violation, and more importantly, Kimmel only attended UNLV for one year before transferring to Arizona State

- Early on Tuesday morning, reports surfaced that Indiana would seek a non-conference game against Louisville. This would have been major news, especially since the Hoosiers couldn’t book a game with Kentucky. However, by Tuesday night, this report was all for naught, as the Hoosiers already filled their final non-conference opening. Let’s just say that Gary Parrish isn’t too happy (If Gary is pissed, so am I.)

- What about Kentucky vs. Cincinnati? I’d be down with that

- North Carolina is once again dealing with an academic scandal, and it looks like there may be basketball players involved. Regardless, Roy Williams is not too concerned. But it did spawn a hilarious article headline

- The Lexington Herald-Leader released a hilarious cartoon depicting John Calipari’s trophy case. Kentucky fans were not happy at all. Here is why the author decided to print the cartoon

- The match-ups for the once-popular Great Alaskan Shootout have been set.  Seven games will be televised on the CBS Sports network. The marquee first round game features Oral Roberts and Loyola Marymount

- Virginia Tech freshman Dorian Finney-Smith has decided to transfer. Apparently, this was a long-time coming, but is a quality player that the Hokies could not afford to lose

- Matt Roth is going to be a fifth year senior at Indiana. You would think he would have a scholarship to play basketball. Well, he did, but now he doesnt

- Who is the nation’s most important transfer? is it Mark Lyons or Alex Oriakhi? Is it somebody else?

- Hmm, this is interesting. Highly touted recruit Savon Goodman may be reclassifying into the class of 2013

- Wake Forest-transfer Tony Chennault has chosen to attend Villanova. The Wildcats are in need of some solid players with experience, which Chennault will be able to provide

- South Carolina-transfer Damontre Harris has cut his list to two schools, Florida and Kansas. Luckily, Harris was not hit with heavy transfer-restrictions and would be able to attend another SEC school

- Lamar assistant coach Joseph Price has been named the new head coach at Grambling State

- Norfolk State’s Kyle O’Quinn will be selected in the NBA draft, and here is why

- UConn will tear down their old football stadium in order to make way for a new basketball practice facility

- Sean Keely thinks former-Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese is full of crap. This cannot be confirmed nor denied

- Pitt Blather provides more on the Marinatto decision
