...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
According to Jeff Goodman at CBSSports, both Mitch McGary and Glenn Robinson III will stay for their sophomore season.
Lakers asst Eddie Jordan will be the next coach at Rutgers. I think this is a great hire by Rutgers, hopefully they will become relevant in the BIG.

@HoopDreamsmag has a feature story on 2013 6-7 F Gabe Levin, who is now receiving interest from Duke and Michigan (although the story only references Duke). Looks like he didn't get any D1 offers in high school, so went to prep school for a year at St Thomas More. Currently committed to Hofstra (with a GW offer) but sounds like he's reopening his recruitment.
Btw, I love getting recruits who spent a year at prep school (McGary, Stauskus, Albrecht). That one year makes a huge difference in size/muscle and makes it more likely that they can contribute immediately. It leaves the player with four years of eligibility but pushes the four years back, allowing for more physical (and hopefully mental/emotional) maturity.
I hadn't heard of this kid until today, but it sounds like he would be a nice get. Searched this site and found nothing but one mention.
EDIT: Geez, people... It's a joke. Chances are that if it's from BHGP, it's loaded with a healthy dose of snark. You're obviously not familiar with the running Christopher Polyblend gag over there.
So, I was searching for specific images of Spike for a gif (forthcoming. It's taking a long time, for some reason), and the following link popped up on a Google search for "Spike Albrecht".
We both know that the NCAA and universities skirts this stuff by selling jerseys with numbers and no names, references to players statements that don't include direct quotes, etc. However, this is something entirely different. This actually has the kids face on it. They are profiting from his likeness, specifically. There can be no argument here. It's his face. It's on a shirt.
Who does one contact about something like this? Somebody needs to have their business sized by the FBI or the SEC or something, don't they?
