Miles Bridges averaged 16.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists as a freshman for the Spartans. When the NBA’s draft’s early-entry eligibility deadline passed at midnight on Sunday night, it didn’t provide the same clarity it used to before testing the waters again became an option. 1. Michigan State: Only a handful of times in Tom Izzo’s decorated career has he had a championship-caliber roster.

Six of Memphis’ eight leading scorers have transferred since Tubby Smith’s debut season ended (AP). The late scholarship offer from such a prominent program was a surprise to Bridges because Stanley hadn’t received much interest from other Division I programs. Miami (Ohio), SIU Edwardsville and a handful of other small-conference schools had all kept tabs on the skilled 6-foot-8 stretch forward, but Stanley committed to Division II Ouachita Baptist earlier this year because none of the Division I programs pulled the trigger with a scholarship offer.

Gonzaga should be a top 20 team next year even without Nigel Williams-Goss. Nigel Williams-Goss raised his stock about as high as it will go this past season, so it’s difficult to fault him for forgoing his final year of college eligibility and turning pro on Tuesday even if he’s not a lock to be selected in this point guard-heavy draft class. Williams-Goss averaged 16.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.7 assists for a Gonzaga team that won 37 games, earned a No. 1 seed and lost by six to North Carolina in the national title game.

Roy Williams fires back at Maryland president, calling him a 'double idiot' (Yahoo Sports)
Roy Williams won his third national championship in 13 seasons with a 71-65 victory over Gonzaga. It didn’t take long for North Carolina coach Roy Williams to fire back at University of Maryland president Wallace Loh. In an interview on Wednesday morning with SiriusXM College Sports Nation, Williams was asked if winning the 2017 national title had “special significance” given the backdrop of allegations of academic fraud that have hung over the Tar Heels since 2010.
