    Default NCAA 2011-2012 Season

    Jared Sullinger and Ohio State are poised for an NCAA title run while DUKE withstood the loss of freshman Kyrie Irving to the NBA draft, Mike Krzyzewski is poised to become the all time NCAA Winningest coach by surpassing his mentor Bobby Knight with the core of returning players from Seth Curry, Andre Dawkins, Ryan Kelly, Miles Plumlee, Mason Plumlee and the addition of superb freshman Austin Rivers.

    While the NCAA are also awaiting where Andre Drummond will attend college and play.

    Never too early for such thread.

    Default NCAA alters timeline for professional draft eligibility

    NCAA approves change on withdrawal from NBA draft

    The NCAA wants more time to debate the future of summer basketball.

    Those same players may not get the same luxury when it comes to the NBA draft.

    The Legislative Committee tabled the first proposal but approved a measure that would force basketball players to withdraw from the draft before the first day of the spring period.

    Both proposals were part of a busy two-day meeting this week. The key decisions were released Wednesday on the governing body's website.

    Players currently have until early May to withdraw from the draft. That would change as early as next fall if the Board of Directors doesn't reject the proposal later this month.

    Committee chairman Shane Lyons was out of the office and unavailable for comment, NCAA spokesman Erik Christianson said Wednesday.

    The committee also tabled two major proposals, one of which would have changed the rules regarding the use of athletes' likenesses for commercial purposes. The other would have given coaches more access to basketball players who take summer courses.

    But the council did make some changes.

    The committee approved a measure that would force men's basketball players to remove their names from the draft list before the first day of the spring signing period.

    The council also rejected a proposal that would have stopped athletes from opting out of a test for the sickle-cell genetic trait. The decision means players still have three options: Taking the test, providing documentation that they have taken the test or signing a waiver to opt out.

    And football players now will be required to earn nine semester hours, or eight quarter hours, during the fall to be eligible for the next season.

    Those players failing to meet the requirement could miss up to four games starting in 2012.

    If a player earns 27 semester hours -- or 40 on a quarterly system -- during the school year, they could reduce the penalty to two games once during their college career.

    But the biggest issues on this week's agenda were put on hold.

    The basketball proposal would require schools to determine which men's players should take summer courses. Those who need the classwork would be required to take at least six hours and pass three during the summer, and coaches would have some access to those players for skill development.

    Committee members, the release said, decided to wait until another NCAA committee can assess the potential benefits or pitfalls of the decision and are expected to discuss it as part of a bigger package of summer basketball recruiting reforms.

    The Legislative Council also rejected three possible changes and tabled a fourth regarding the use of athletes' likenesses. The one that was tabled would allow athletes to participate in promotional activities for the school, charitable, educational or nonprofit organizations -- with certain conditions.

    The athlete and the school would both have to agree to the promotion.

    Both of the tabled proposals are expected to be discussed later this year.

    In addition, the committee added two graduate assistants to teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Teams are currently allowed two grad assistants.

    Default Alex Murphy re-classified into 2011 class

    Alex Murphy completed his requirements in High-School (St. Mark's) and will be enrolling in DUKE and joins point guard Austin Rivers as a prized recruit.

    Murphy could play with the Blue Devils when they go overseas like China and Dubai later this year.



    Some do call Murphy as the next great white due to the skillset of Murphy where Murphy has the ability of a point forward alongside the athleticism to finish with either a dunk or a power play towards the basket. Murphy excels on the attack on the wide open floor and is not a bad jump shooter either.

    Currently 6-8 and 215 pounds, could stand to gain more weight and refine his shooting.

    Default Isaiah Austin

    I am intrigued with center Isaiah Austin (Grace Prep, Texas) that is currently committed to Baylor. Austin is a seven footer that has the skills of a forward, meaning athleticism, the medium range jumpshot (not consistent still) and the agility that allows him to run the floor very very well. Austin could be paired up with Sophomore forward Perry Jones, making Baylor a very tall and agile frontcourt.


    Still, Austin needs to gain weight.

    Default Maryland names Turgeon as head coach

    Maryland has named former Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon as the new head coach.

    Turgeon is known for his aggressive full-court press Man-to-Man defense and occasional shifts to the Zone. I am interested on how Maryland will adapt into this new system.

    Default Purvis rescinds from Louisville

    Incoming freshman point guard Rodney Purvis decommitted from the Louisville Cardinals after Louisville Assistant Coach Tim Fuller accepted a coaching position in Missouri.

    Rumor has it that North Carolina State, Duke, Kentucky, Florida, Baylor and Missouri are all competing to recruit Purvis.

    Purvis, a 6-4 combo guard is advertised to share the prototypical comparisons to John Wall and Brandon Knight. Personally, I would have wanted Purvis with Louisville under head coach Rick Pitino.
