Forty percent of students who play men's Division I basketball transfer before they are juniors -- that's more than 400 a year, the highest rate of any sport, according to National Association of Basketball Coaches executive director Jim Haney.
Well, it will be a long trip out west but congrats to Coach Watten for making the NCAA Softball Tourney for the third consecutive year! Here's a link:
The next critical Jenga piece is Notre Dame, which would definitely leave if the basketball universities left — and could possibly leave even if they don’t. The A.C.C. is the most likely destination. The Irish’s television contract with NBC, currently under negotiation, will go a long way in determining their future — as will how they fare as a stakeholder in the new college football playoff. That appears to be safe and stable for now.
If Notre Dame leaves for the A.C.C., its only realistic destination, the A.C.C. will take Connecticut or Rutgers to make it a 16-team league. And that would send all the Big East blocks tumbling.
Howard was issued a citation, but was not held this morning. He was seen "taunting" an individual outside of Shanghai Café on Route 1, Limansky said. Howard will appear in court whenever a date is set and, if convicted, the incident will go on his record, Limansky added.
Limansky said police responded to a fight outside of Shanghai, but did not know whether Howard was involved in the fight. In front of a crowd of more than 30 patrons, Howard allegedly began taunting the aggressor involved in the fight, Limansky said.
Officers reportedly asked Howard to step back and to stop instigating, but Howard continued what he was doing, Limansky said.
"They thought that I was instigating," Howard said in a phone interview. "But people around me said I wasn't."
Howard was released early this morning. There was no indication that the incident involved alcohol, Limansky said.

Sophomore Terrell Stoglin, the Atlantic Coast Conference's leading scorer, hasn't finalized his decision to return to Maryland next season, and his father said the family would at least look at NBA draft options.
"We haven't determined any of that yet," Joe Stoglin said. "Right now, his goal is to come back and play his junior season. We want to see him come back and have a big junior season and make the NCAA tournament."
According to an Anne Arundel County police report, Hill was pulled over while driving south on the Baltimore/Washington Parkway near Maryland Route 32 at 1:55 a.m. on Thursday.
Police said Hill was observed driving a 2008 GMC Yukon erratically, abruptly swerving and making an unsafe lane change. After pulling Hill over, an officer detected "the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" and saw Hill’s eyes were red and watery.
According to the report, Hill told the officer he had "three beers at the club." The officer wrote that Hill’s speech was slow and extremely slurred.
The officer then asked Hill to take a field sobriety test. Hill had "difficulty maintaining his balance" and later "became uncooperative and refused to submit to the test."
