Pretty clearly, after the Kelvin Sampson situation, Indiana is cleaning house and starting over: ten players won't be back and only three scholarship players are returning. Tom Crean's situation has become very, very difficult. Not impossible though: it can be done. But it's going to take some time.

Tennessee has kicked Duke Crews and Ramar Smith off the team, allegedly because of drug use.

Bob Huggins has signed an 11-year extension, which pretty much should guarantee he retires at West Virginia.

Meanwhile, Davidson has picked up former Tommy Amaker recruit Frank Ben-Eze, one of the better big men available. If Davidson can get a guy like that, is there any reason Johhny Dawkins and Stanford can't?

Meanwhile, Kentucky has sought - and gotten - a commitment from an eighth grader.
