2011 Target Scottie Wilbekin Might Be Off the Board Soon

New 2012 Name: Tyler Lewis

Just a teaser from IMS but a guy that's worth keeping an eye on. Check out the highlight video here. Him and Pe'Shon in a backcourt together would basically own Sportscenter.

Clarence Trent transferring from Washington

Why is this news? Because it opens up a second scholarship for UW to possibly secure both Terrence Jones and he who shall not be named. Don't know if anyone cares anymore but I figured I'd post it. 

Gary Proposes Rule Changes

Not sure I agree with him on some of these.

1. Abolish the NBA age limit - Agree on this one but don't think it'll happen. The NCAA makes too much money off one-and-dones like Durant and John Wall, while the NBA gets to see them hyped up for a year before their entrance.

2. Allow early entry players to return (and play) for school - Huh? Imagine Steve Francis coming back and playing for the Terps next season. Not a fan.

3. Pay stipend to players - The players receiving an education and an opportunity to get to the league is a stipend in itself. Plus, paying everyone the same stipend will do nothing to stop corruption in college basketball.  

Thoughts from anyone else?
