Memphis AD's statement on rash of transfers badly misses the mark (Yahoo Sports)

Memphis AD's statement on rash of transfers badly misses the mark

Six of Memphis’ eight leading scorers have transferred since Tubby Smith’s debut season ended (AP). There’s no good way to spin losing six of your top eight players to transfers, but the approach Memphis athletic director Tom Bowen took was especially ill-conceived. In a letter addressed to Tigers fans on Tuesday morning, Bowen blamed the culture of modern college basketball for the exodus that has occurred after Tubby Smith’s debut season as Memphis coach.

Steve Fisher achieved the unimaginable by turning around San Diego State (Yahoo Sports)

Steve Fisher achieved the unimaginable by turning around San Diego State

The day before home games during his debut season at San Diego State, Steve Fisher would venture out onto campus with his pockets stuffed full of free tickets. When Fisher became San Diego State’s new head coach in 1999, the Aztecs had never won an NCAA tournament game and were coming off a dismal stretch of 13 losing seasons in 14 years. The transformation Fisher engineered during his 18 seasons at San Diego State is the most underappreciated element of his decorated coaching career. Under Fisher’s guidance, the Aztecs evolved from perennial afterthoughts into one of the West Coast’s best programs, making six straight NCAA tournaments from 2010-2015 including a pair of Sweet 16 appearances in 2011 and 2014.

Devonte Graham's return eases pressure on Kansas to land impact recruit (Yahoo Sports)

Devonte Graham's return eases pressure on Kansas to land impact recruit

When Devonte Graham announced on Sunday that he intends to return for his senior season, it didn’t just cement Kansas as the favorite to capture the Big 12 for the 14th year in a row. Graham’s return also eases the pressure on the Jayhawks to land a marquee point guard this spring to replace consensus national player of the year Frank Mason. Although Graham has played mostly off ball the past couple years alongside Mason, he is a capable ball handler and natural point guard.

Roy Williams is considered overrated by some. His third national championship at North Carolina should end that narrative once and for all.
