Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
Syracuse University basketball has been under NCAA investigation for a period of “years,” a source with knowledge of the case told CBSSports.com.
That source said the school has received a letter of preliminary inquiry from the NCAA.
The specific nature of the alleged violations was not disclosed by the source but the transgressions were described as both major and wide-ranging in nature. The investigation also encompasses football but is believed to primarily involve basketball. Syracuse has been penalized only once by the NCAA in a major case according to the association's legislative database. That was in 1992 in a case that focused on extra benefits in the basketball program.
Seven Catholic schools that split have added Butler, Creighton, and Xavier to the mix. Effective July 1st of this year. The next step would be 12, and while nothing is official, St. Louis and Dayton are names being tossed around.
Speaking of injuries any update on THJ's ankle? I know he finished the game but if he had any set backs or does anyone even know anyhting about it?

Open thread to discuss opening round games in Dayton. North Carolina A&T just narrowly escaped a late game collapse to Liberty.
St. Mary's will be playing Middle Tennessee State in the next game.
Edit: Robert Morris is also up on Kentucky in the second half in the NIT.
