  • Calipari to Bobby Knight, Media: If You Must Know, 3.14: “John Calipari rarely misses an opportunity to twist the knife a little when those who feel comfortable blasting him for everything from recruiting violations (he’s never even been accused of any) to teams with academic issues, to defamatory falsehoods about class attendance. The old saying is, what goes around, comes around.” (A Sea of Blue)

After news leaked that Sterling Gibbs asked out of his LOI earlier today, another of Maryland’s commitments, 6-9 F Martin Breunig, has also asked for his release from the university.” (Testudo Times)
  • Nick Faust Asks out of Letter of Intent, Too, and Maryland Has No Signees: “The good news: Maryland is still being considered by both Gibbs and Faust, and probably Breunig, too. The bad news: they aren’t committed and there’s no telling what happens from here.” (Testudo Times)
