04.23.07 Fast BreaksPosted by rtmsf on April 23rd, 2007
- OSU’s Thad Three (Greg Oden, Michael Conley, Jr., Daequan Cook) are going pro – Conley & Cook will not sign with Dad, er, an agent.
- Chris Lofton is staying at Tennessee for his senior season. This decision undoubtedly pushes UT into the SEC frontrunner position for next year.
- Nevada’s Marcellus Kemp and Ramon Sessions are set to test the NBA waters, but only Kemp is projected as a first round pick (in 2008).
- Brandan Wright is expected to declare for the NBA today. Don’t despair Carolina fans, Deon Thompson is probably a better long-term fit for the Heels.
- Iowa’s second-leading scorer Tyler Smith appears to be transferring to Tennessee, and could possibly play in 2007-08 based upon a family hardship waiver.
- Luke Winn has a nice piece today on five new coaches with immediate expectations at their new schools (Turgeon – Wichita St., Martin – Kansas St., Pelphrey – Arkansas, Gillispie – Kentucky, Huggins – WVU).
