Morning Five: 05.28.10 EditionPosted by rtmsf on May 28th, 2010
- Fall guys? Two UConn assistant coaches resigned last night in light of an announcement that UConn will make later this morning (10am) about its findings with respect to the Nate Miles scandal from two seasons ago. Pat Sellers and Beau Archibald will undoubtedly be implicated as possible violators in that press conference, which will outline the allegations that the program is facing as a result of Miles’ recruitment. This will be very interesting to observe, as UConn just handed Jim Calhoun a contract extension a few weeks ago, and it wouldn’t make sense they would have done so unless they believe that his hands are clean here.
- One of UCLA’s leading returnees, Malcolm Lee, will have arthroscopic surgery soon to repair cartilage in his right knee. He is expected to be out for 4-6 weeks and it should not impact his play for next season. Ben Howland’s team has suffered numerous injuries, transfers and the like in the last calendar year, so the news that Lee will be back better than ever for 2010-11 has to be welcome to UCLA fans.
- In light of the Kansas ticket office scandal, as expected, no other major program in America has any problems whatsoever with their ticket policies. In other news, BP has this thing under control.
- Sometimes it pays to get nailed with a scandal or two under your belt. Just ask Kelvin Sampson.
- Andy Glockner gives us a list of the players we should be watching outside the BCS programs next season. It’s a great list, and he definitely nails it in starting with San Diego State’s uber-talented Kawhi Leonard.
