    Sep 16, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT

    Greg-Anthony

    Clark Kellogg’s five-year run as CBS’ lead college basketball analyst appears to be over. According to a report from SI.com’s Richard Deitscsh, Greg Anthony will be taking over as the network’s lead-game analyst, teaming with Jim Nantz in the role previously held by Kellogg and Billy Packer before him.

    Sep 15, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    Leon Rice

    After landing their first verbal commitment in the 2014 class last weekend (shooting guard Chandler Hutchison), Boise State landed a second verbal commitment as 6-9 forward/center David Wacker announced his decision on Sunday. The news was first reported by Robin Washut of Rivals.com. Wacker, a native of Converse, Texas, attends Judson High School where plays…

    Kevin Stallings

    With Kyle Fuller entering his senior season and leading scorer Kedren Johnson suspended for the entire 2013-14 season, Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings needed some reinforcements on the perimeter. Earlier this summer the Commodores received a verbal commitment from shooting guard Wade Baldwin, and late Sunday evening it was reported by Evan Daniels of Scout.com that…

  4. NCAA prohibits coaches from visiting programs deemed to be ‘non-scholastic’

    Sep 15, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Jake Thomas

    With college coaches in the portion of their recruiting calendar where they’re allowed to visit high schools throughout the country, this is an important time for many young players across the country. Those open gym sessions can be a game-changer of sorts, as a player who performs well could land himself a scholarship offer that…

  5. Northwestern forward Mike Turner takes leave of absence from program

    Sep 15, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Travis Carroll

    First-year head coach Chris Collins has made quite a splash in his first few months on the job. Recruiting has picked up, with the Wildcats landing verbal commitments from guards Vic Law and Bryant McIntosh and forward Gavin Skelly. With the success on the recruiting trail, the most important question to be answered is whether…

  6. Odessa JC PG Josh Gray verbally commits to attend Florida State

    Sep 15, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Chris Walker, Josh Gray

    While much of the coverage on recruiting tends to focus on players making the move from high school to the college level, the junior college ranks can prove to be quite fruitful for a program. Such has been the case for Florida State over the last week, as the Seminoles have added two highly-regarded players…

    Cliff Alexander, the #2 rated recruit in ESPN’s Top 100 rankings for the class of 2014, tweeted out earlier this afternoon that he plans to play his college basketball with JaQuan Lyle, the #22 recruit, according to ESPN. These “package deals” seem to be all the rage this offseason, along with schools unveiling courts with…

  8. Drew Wilson ruled immediately eligible for Oral Roberts

    In late May, Drew Wilson transferred from Missouri State to Oral Roberts in order to be closer to his family following the death of his sister. It was expected, at first, that Wilson would be ruled eligible to play in the 2013-14 season, but his initial request for immediate eligibility was denied. However, his case…

    Ole Miss v Wisconsin

    Remember that game last year between Wisconsin and Michigan where Ben Brust tied the game with a heave from just inside midcourt as time expired? If your memory is a bit fuzzy, here’s a reminder: It was one of the most memorable games from last season and an incredible shot from Brust, who said following…

  10. Jim Calhoun still has an ‘itch’ for the game

    Sep 15, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament -  UCONN v Iowa St

    Talk to former college athletes, and many will tell you that the biggest competitor on their team was not a player, but rather a coach — the head coach. The sport they coach and the kids they mentor are their profession and, ultimately, winning is how any coach will be judged. It has been just…

  11. 2014 forward Paul White commits to Georgetown

    Sep 15, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    247sports.com

    John Thompson III and Georgetown picked up a big commitment over the weekend as Paul White, a 6-foot-8 forward from Chicago, IL, announced that he will be a Georgetown Hoya beginning in the fall of 2014. White, the #57 player in ESPN’s 2014 Top 100 recruiting rankings, made his second visit to Georgetown this weekend,…

  12. 2014 forward Vince Edwards commits to Purdue

    Matt Painter had been recruiting Vince Edwards, a 6-foot-6 forward from Franklin, OH, dating back to the fall of 2011. Finally, on Edwards’ official visit to Purdue over the weekend, he pledged a commitment to play for Painter at Purdue. Painter’s persistence paid off, especially considering that Big Ten rival Michigan recently came into the…

  13. Report: Pseudo-Bucky is roaming Madison, Wisconsin

    Sep 14, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    MARY SPICUZZA – State Journal

    Bucky the Badger is a common sight at Camp Randall Stadium these days, and soon enough we’ll be seeing him on the sidelines at the Kohl Center, rooting Bo Ryan’s troops on in their nearly decade-and-a-half streak of NCAA tournament appearances. Where Bucky shouldn’t be, according to the Wisconsin State Journal, is hanging out at…

  14. It’s raining recruits for Rick Pitino in Seattle

    Sep 14, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Shaqquan Aaron

    Sometimes it must be pretty rough being Lorenzo Romar. He gets the lip service from top recruits in the Pacific Northwest, but recently he’s been publicly spurned by recruits like Kyle Wiltjer, Terrence Jones and Enes Kanter, all of whom chose to leave home to play for John Calipari at Kentucky. And it doesn’t end…

  15. BYU gets early jump on 2018 recruiting class

    Sep 14, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    Dave Rose

    I know coaches like to get the jump on their rivals by getting a kid’s verbal commitment early, but this is ridiculous. Dave Rose has offered a scholarship to 6’1″ guard Frank Jackson, and Jackson has accepted. The rub is that Jackson isn’t expected to suit up for Brigham Young until 2018. It’s not as…

  16. Boston University unveils new floor

    Screen grab via Instagram

    You know who’s cleaning up this year? Companies that install basketball flooring. I mean, if a guy who owns a custom wood laminates company doesn’t end up in the Forbes 500 this year, I’ll be shocked. It makes sense, though. With so many schools changing leagues in the realignment shuffle, new logos have to be…

  17. Cards fan gets Pitino tat, or is that Christopher Walken?

    Sep 14, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    @DrewFranklinKSR

    Tattoos have recently been a big deal in college sports. You can get your football team in trouble for getting free ones, you can forget to spell-check, or you can – as Rick Pitino did this year – celebrate a national title with one. One thing that is always a bit dicey when getting ink…

    In its first season in the new Big East, Xavier has unveiled its new basketball uniforms through the team manager’s Twitter account on Saturday.

    Emmanuel Mudiay

    It was hard to follow college basketball this summer, and not hear about Prime Prep Academy (Texas) point guard Emmanuel Mudiay. On Aug. 24, at the Under Armour Elite 24 in Brooklyn, the 6-foot-5, five-star recruit did the unthinkable and picked Larry Brown and SMU, rather than follow a long line of successful one-and-done point guards…
