OK I rarely watch women's basketball. I even more rarely watch a game not involving the Huskies...but I did tune in to quite a bit of Rutgers/Tennessee last night. What went on at the end of that game was one of the worst clock-related travesties I've ever seen, seriously. An absolute joke.

Also the pink Rutgers unis were kind of cool.

Really? That particularly group wasn't exactly a joy to cheer for but overally I like Calhoun. I do think the end of the road is coming for him as a head coach, and when that day comes the entire state of CT is going to lose their minds.

I think it's odd how his recruiting successes have evolved. Remember how the old Calhoun would bring in a bunch of wing players who could run and shoot, but never any quality bigs (and no, Travis Knight does not = quality big). The word "donut team" got tossed around a lot. Now he seems to bring in more interior guys, which is cool, but I miss the days when UConn could press & trap all night with quality guards.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana basketball coach Kelvin Sampson and his staff violated telephone recruiting restrictions imposed because of his previous violations at Oklahoma, then lied about it to the school and NCAA investigators, the NCAA said Wednesday.

The NCAA has listed five major violations against Sampson, saying he gave "false or misleading information" to investigators. The university released the NCAA's report later Wednesday.

Major violations of NCAA rules can carry punishments including postseason ineligibility.

Indiana has until May 8 to provide a written response.

Among the specific allegations cited in the NCAA letter:

• That Sampson, assistant coach Jeff Meyer and former assistant Rob Senderoff failed to comply with sanctions imposed on Sampson for impermissible recruiting calls he made while he was the head coach at Oklahoma. Sampson was under such sanctions when he was hired to coach the Hoosiers in May 2006.

Sampson and Senderoff are alleged to have jointly participated in telephone calls at a time when Sampson was prohibited from being present or taking part when staff members made recruiting calls. Senderoff and Meyer are alleged to have made about 100 calls that exceeded the sanction limits.

Senderoff resigned his position Oct. 30.

• That Senderoff and Meyer placed "at least 25 telephone calls" to nine potential recruits that exceeded NCAA limits even if no sanctions had been in place.

• That Sampson "acted contrary to the NCAA principles of ethical conduct when he knowingly violated recruiting restrictions imposed by the NCAA Committee on Infractions."

• That Sampson and Meyer engaged in an impermissible recruiting contact during a two-day sports camp held at Assembly Hall last June 30 and July 1, and that Meyer provided the potential recruit with an impermissible benefit -- at least one T-shirt and drawstring backpack.

In a statement issued through his attorney, Meyer said he would continue to cooperate with Indiana and the NCAA.

"I regret that I may have made mistakes that are causing my and IU's conduct to be examined by the NCAA. ... I will not comment on this process again before it is completed," Meyer said.




i'm pretty sure i know who the recruit he gave the illegal t-shirt to is

The NCAA rules do need to be revisited when a free T-shirt is cause for sanction.

well that's the least important detail in the sanctions, but it is a known fact. heck i was told by my coach at a small ass D3 school after asking for a school t-shirt that i couldn't recieve one because it was an ncaa violation. one would assume that sampson, with all his past history, knows full well that everything he was doing was a violation.

That's the thing. At this point if you're Sampson you have to have a pretty fair working knowledge of what is & isn't cool with the NCAA...I think he's in trouble.

I love how the "Bobby Knight to IU" rumors are springing up, picture that.

And UConn wins again. Their schedule looks pretty soft the rest of the way, I could see them winning out, getting to the Big East final, and ending up with a 2 or 3 seed that they don't deserve. I'd be surprised if they got past the sweet 16, a 2nd round loss wouldn't shock me.

wow. you can develop atheleticism into good players, you can't develop fundamentally sound players into good athletes. the last two years have been pretty ugly. no shooters on the team makes for some ugly basketball.

this year, just watching thabeet's improvement makes them fun to watch. the guy was so bad, and in a year and a half he has become a very good player.

watching uconn block shots smartly, is worth watching them. one thing calhoun's staff has, they know how to teach players to block shots, and do it correctly. the syracuse game was a thing of beauty defensively for uconn. syracuse big men lowering the shoulders, trying to run over guys, and then still getting their shots thrown.

one man's ugly, is another's thing of beauty.

calhoun is a great coach, and he is sdjusting to what he has and winning anyway.

so you must really hate watching memphis?

it's this exact reasoning that has helped aid in the downfall of american basketball... not to mention the rise of the mid-majors.

yes, you are correct. you can't teach the god given athleticism that some of these kids have. no doubt.

unfortunatly you also can't teach heart, toughness and work ethic. so all of these athletic freaks who've been AAU superstars their entire life and have a sense of entitlement get to college and marginaly develop.

meanwhile the guys a run below them go to the mid-majors, stay for 4 years, develop their game, become quicker based on good solid fundamentals... and george mason beats uconn to go to the final four.

give me butler any day. they may not win it all, but they're fun to watch and they play the game the way it's supposed to be played.

Well, no, not just a t-shirt. But a T-shirt AND a drawstring backpack...now THAT is a reason for sanctions.

In reality, he is a repeat offender. If your hand has been slapped before, and you continue to do it - you either
are dumb and/or have a problem.

holy shit on a stick...

if you have a chance to watch st. anthony of jersey city play, do so. talk about playing basketball the right way. tough, hard nosed man to man defense, run and gun transition, smooth fundamentaly perfect jump shooters. it was a coach's dream to watch, unless of course you were seated on the other bench.

looking across from your seat on the bench and seeing an absolute legend of coaching on the other side of the court wasn't nearly as nerve racking as i thought it would be. but bob hurley certainly does have a presense in any gym that makes people stop and look when he walks into the room. the man's the john wooden of high school basketball for christ's sake.

going into the game st. anthony was 21-0, 20 of their 21 victories coming by 20 points or more for an average margin of victory of 39 points per game. 6 seniors have already signed with D1 schools (two to Fordham, one to St. Joe's, one to Pitt, one to Marquette and one to Rutgers), and their top junior is deciding between offers from North Carolina, Georgetown and Wake Forest.

This team is a never ending punch to the gut. Everytime we would cut it close they'd come back with a three, a steal for a layup and another three and all of a sudden you found yourself down double digits again. When their shots went up you automaticly assumed they were going in.

We survived their first run out, down just 9 at half time... feeling pretty good, feeling like there was a chance to pull off the upset. They miss their opening shot to start the second half and we get the ball, but we can't execute... and if you make a mistake against this team they'll eat you alive. 9 because 15 in no time. It hovered around there for a while, going back and forth, but eventually they pushed it out over 20. We'd cut it back down to as much as 16, but ultimately lost by 17.

This team was the best high school team i've ever seen. Their defensive rotations, the speed at which they moved in transition, the shots they hit with ease... unbelievable. And not a single guy complained to a ref, not a single guy talked back to the coach, no one bragged after a dunk or a big play, no over done celebrating... pure class the entire way.
