Some National Notes

In some national notes, surprise: John Wooden is picking UCLA. In other big news, the Lopez twins are both going pro. South Carolina probably made a pretty good hire in Darrin Horn, the Western Kentucky coach.

No word at Indiana yet, but things seem to be pretty much in chaos. Dan Dakich has kicked two players off the team with allegations of failed drug tests, poor academic work, and insubordination. Simultaneously, he's asking for the job full-time, which normally you wouldn't get when there is a perception of turmoil.

New Mexico gave Steve Alford an extension, perhaps being proactive about IU, since you don't usually get that after a 15-17 year.

In a nice bit of news, Stephen Curry says he'll be back next year.
