When I saw that it was a syracuse.com article, I was hoping that the "new tradition" would involve Syracuse playing away OOC games. Silly me!😀

Is anybody else following the new scandal that broke today involving recruits getting money from outfitters? I'm interested to see al the coaches and teams involved.

Interesting - but not surprising - that the top recruit involved (Brian Bowen) ended up at Louisville, even though they hadn't really even been involved in his recruiting until just prior to his commitment. A quote from Pitino, courtesy of SOV on the HC site:

" Rick Pitino said: "We got lucky on this one. I had an AAU director call me and ask me if I'd be interested in a player (Bowen). I saw him against another great player from Indiana. I said, 'Yeah, I'd be really interested.' They had to come in unofficially, pay for their hotel, pay for their meals. We spent zero dollars recruiting a five-star athlete who I loved when I say him play. In my 40 years of coaching, this is the luckiest I've been." "

I'm sure Pitino will claim he knew nothing again.

Other teams I've read that could be involved are Arizona, USC, Oklahoma State, Auburn and Miami

Louisville's involvement is apparently much deeper than first reported. According to a local TV station, "In another case, a coach for a university that matches U of L's description was caught on an undercover FBI video negotiating payments in a Las Vegas hotel room for a second recruit, prosecutors claim. The coach, who is not named, acknowledged that his school was on probation at the time and said, 'we gotta be very low key," according to court documents."


Note that this is not the original reported case involving Bowen but rather a different recruit.

There are few things I would enjoy more than seeing Rick Pitino go to jail. Unfortunately he has probably covered his tracks too well and will pay off the assistant to not implicate him. Pitino has been an unethical POS going back at least since he was 19 years-old. Likely longer.

Because of hurricane damage, they're moving the Paradise Jam basketball tournament from the Virgin Islands to a to-be-determined location in the mainland United States.

Tough break for family and fans who were fired up for that. Let's hope they aren't forced to replace the tropical paradise with something like Buffalo.*

*Apologies to you Buffalonians; I'm still grumbling about our snowbound NCAA destination last season.

I think there could be postseason bans, but likely not this year. The NCAA is likely to stay out of the way while the FBI investigation continues. Eventually they will likely piggyback on the findings of that investigation - but that could be a few years away. In the meantime, some schools that know they won't be very good may take self-imposed bans to try to avoid tougher sanctions later.

Pitino was put on mandatory unpaid leave. This is one step away from being fired. I wonder when the perp walk will happen?

My guess is his administrative leave will last the 10 days that his contract requires U of L to give him notice prior to his firing.

The HC Board is wondering if Ralph Willard will be brought in as in Interim HC at Louisville. Personally, I think that he is way too close to Patino and find it hard to believe that anybody associated with the entire coaching staff will be kept on board. Then again, the NCAA might give them the death penalty at which point, they won't need an Interim HC.

Several sources say the interim HC job has been offered to assistant coach David Padgett. As for the death penalty, if that happens it won't occur for several years. Doubtful the NCAA will do much investigation until the FBI finishes. The FBI, with its subpoena powers, is much more equipped for the task, and they don't want the NCAA getting in their way.

my primary interest pre tourney is in teams/schools more in the Bucknell mold than the badketball factories. as such i am interested in seeing how the Ivies shake out, how much seperation is there between the haves HYP and the have nots with Penn hanging in as best they can with the top tier.

others who look interesting to me are Furman and Charleston.

normally i'd like Vermont, but not happy about their existence right now.

of the big boys, Nova, Wake Forest and Northwestern this year. so, bottom line, i'll be watching a lot of college hoops with all that on top of a maximum dose of PL hoops featuring Bucknell..

Watching the game. Pitt has eleven new players on the roster aswrll as new coaching staff. Pitt started second half 0-11 or maybe worse and deficit could really been much worse, Navy with some sloppy play. But Navy doesn’t look too bad...Pitt will def struggle early and in ACC.

No surprise that Yale at home is hanging around with a good Vermont team. Yale looks like they may be the top Ivy team, even with the loss of Makai Mason, who was a likely Ivy POY before his injury.

Ball State ended up beating MVC Indiana State 93-85 on the road. Good win for them.

Not sure if anyone noticed that one of the officials was Andy O'Brien. He is the one who took a game away from the Bison with his idiotic late game call on Ryan Frazier for stepping out of bounds on the baseline and then catching a pass while 20 feet inbounds about 8 seconds later. O'Brien got thrown under the bus by PL head of officials Reggie Greenwood for his blatant lack of common sense. Since that call three year ago, he has reffed only one game where the PL assigned the refs. He has continued to get a number of assignments from the MAAC and AE however.

If anyone missed the Alabama-Minnesota game, the highlights are worth a watch. During a dust-up 6 minutes into the second half, the entire Alabama bench came onto the court several feet but did not participate in the scuffle. This resulted in the entire bench being ejected, including coach Avery Johnson's son.

Alabama had to play with just five players until one fouled out. So they played with four. Until one more got hurt. They finished with 3 players - AND MADE A RUN - to almost win the game. In the video, notice the Bama bench in the background of the closing highlights. Six coaches and the guy who fouled out. Rather surreal.

Yes, amazing run. Gritty play by Alabama, combined with terrible play by Minnesota. Scores at a few points during the game"

- Two minutes left in first half: Minnesota 28, Alabama 21

- 11:37 left in 2nd half (when Bama is down to 4 players): Minnesota 63, Alabama 52

- 6:37 left: Minnesota 79, Alabama 64

- 1:39 left: Minnesota 83, Alabama 80


Note that during the six minutes between the last two scores shown that Alabama outscored Minnesota 16-4 playing with 3 players!

Maryland had a critical turnover with about 40 seconds left, trailing by a basket. Game was close throughout - played in the Carrier Dome.

Monmouth ended up beating undefeated Albany by 8 points. Very impressive win with Micah Seaborn still out with his knee injury. Albany had beaten both Boston U and Holy Cross on the road by about 15 points apiece.

Ball St won 80-77. I would say that helps our RPI, but unless Northeastern and St. Joe's turn out far better than they are now, it's a moot point.

Forgot to mention this from Tuesday night: Pitt was taken to OT by Mt. St. Mary's in the Peterson Events Center after blowing a 15-point lead over the last eight minutes. A crowd of 2300 showed up to watch a dismal Pitt team, even though students are on campus. Pitt now is ranked about the same as Army nationally.

MSM, by the way, has really been struggling after having lost three starters as transfers to power-conference programs.

There are two players in the nation who lead their conference in both ppg and rpg:

- Zach Thomas (Bucknell) 23.2 ppg, 9.3 rpg

- Marvin Bagley III (Duke) 21.9 ppg, 11.2 rpg

Nova hung on to win, but LaSalle gave them a tough game. Bison will have their hands full on the 22nd.

Looked at the Vermont score and saw Northwestern leads Chicago St 81-21. It was 55-8 at halftime. How is that possible?

So Chicago State only lost the second half by 190 and actually won the last few minutes 12-10. A moral vicory.

The takeaway is how much you can drop down in a year or two without continued recruiting success. I remember watching games in PF’s last year we we had Linthicum, Vegotsky, Castlebury, Behan etc on the floor. Not trying to belittle those individuals or their contributions as I think they themselves would agree they wouldn’t have done well playing Abe, Lee, Griffin, The German, KB etc. Can talk about coaching all you want but the game on the hardware is 90% played earlier on the roadways and gym visits. Can’t achieve without talented kids and they seem to get bigger, stronger and faster every year.

George Mason lost 74-51 at home tonight to Georgia Southern. They are now 5-6 with their best win being against Binghamton. Not the year their fans were hoping for.

- LaSalle beat a good Mercer team 95-85.

- UNC beat Tennessee on the road 78-73.

- Vermont lost 81-79 to Bona in Rochester, with SBU hitting a long three from the wing as time expired. Bona hit 58% on twos and 67% (8-12) on threes for the game.

- Siena, in a rare good performance, beat Bryant on the road by 19.

Northeastern won at Kent State by an 81-69 score tonight. In their last five games, they have beaten Harvard by 16 points, Cornell by 20, Bucknell by 18 points, Vermont by 4, and Kent State by 12. Prior to Harvard, they ranked 180th in the nation. Now they are #125 and rising.

A couple weeks ago I went to see SU play the winless Goucher Gophers. SU won by a single point on a driving layup with less than a second to play. Fun game to watch, but they really are pretty weak.

What does that say about Lafayette? SU has had some good teams, but this is a down year. On top of that, their best player, Ryan Traub, sat most of the 1st half with foul trouble. Still, he score 23 points in only 28 minutes. Imagine what the Bison would have done to them.

Villanova is getting crushed by Butler. Butler is 14-21 from 3. Hard to beat a team that's shooting like that.

Nova trailed by 22 points with 8:30 left, but cut the margin to 6 with 2:00 remaining. Couldn't get any closer however, and lost 101-93.

There are a couple notable injuries to players from teams on bucknell's non-conference schedule that have happened in the last week.

Maryland Forwards Justin Jackson (torn labrum) and Ivan Bender (right knee injury) are both out for the season.

Vermont forward Anthony Lamb is out 6-8 weeks with a broken foot.

This was kind of a replay of last year - except for the result. Last year he left the team for 7 or 8 games but was allowed to return. This year he again left the team, two weeks ago, but after a lot of talk, it was mutually decided he is not returning. Although talented, he was a major disciplinary problem - but also he was jerked around by Patsos in a major way. I imagine he will transfer to a D2 school, where he can play without sitting out a year. That assumes that he can't graduate in three years and not have to sit out at a D1 program.
