Potentially good news for Virginia - for a change - as Jontel Evans may be back fairly soon. Since Virginia is basically out of point guards, that's really encouraging news for the Hoos.

Despite not having Devon Booker, who was suspended for the game, Clemson rolled through its exhibition game with Lander, 72-42. Josh Smith was also held out.
Given how well Landry Nnoko played, he might regret it: the big rookie from Cameroon shot 7-9 and grabbed six boards. That'll get him a longer look.
Milton Jennings was 6-12 and had eight rebounds of his own.
Gary Williams is (again) following in Lefty Driesell's footsteps, this time as an announcer: after a year working the Big Ten, he's back home in the DC/Baltimore area working as a studio analyst for Comcast SportsNet. Should be fun; let's hope they have a delay.
Here's a bit of news about Larry Drew II, who left UNC to wide derision, even from non-UNC types. But he opens up a bit about why he left UNC, saying that "[t]here were just instances on and off the court where I felt uncomfortable. I lost my confidence during the process. And I just felt it would be in my best interests to remove myself from the program. So that's what I did."
Allan Chaney, formerly of Florida and Virginia Tech, was out of the game for a time following some heart issues. After some conflicting diagnoses, he found a doctor who was working with a wireless defibrillator. Now he's playing at High Point, for former UNC guard Scott Cherry, and apparently very happy. There is always going to be certain level of uncertainty and doubt about the wisdom of his playing, but it's his life and he is going to live it the way he wants.
