Sad, sad news about the passing of former SEC commissioner Mike Slive. One of the classiest people I have met doing this job. Spoke to him a few months ago and he was glowing about the state of SEC hoops and where it was headed.
Indiana had ONE player from state of Indiana on roster this past season: fifth-year senior Carlin Hartman. Indiana kids in college hoops: Jaren Jackson, Kyle Guy, Trevon Bluiett, Kris Wilkes, Bryant McIntosh, etc. https://t.co/4qsqslTWKf
Tough debut for Billy Preston in Bosnia. Had 3 fouls in 6 minutes, scoring 2 points on 1/3 shooting with 2 assists, 1 rebound and 1 steal in Igokea's home win over second-tier Croatian team Zadar in the Adriatic League.
Love Trae Young's outside shooting, court vision and ability to create off ball screens, but Atlanta better start collecting rim protectors to compensate for his defense. No idea who he'll guard in the NBA.
Who is the only player in the history to be the first pick in the NBA Draft and come from a New England college? Yes, our guy, Providence College guard Jimmy Walker – Selected first by the Detroit Pistons in 1967.@JalenRose#GoFriarspic.twitter.com/gQfjTBii0c
