INDIANAPOLIS — The Commission on College Basketball sharply directed the NCAA to take control of the sport, calling for sweeping reforms to separate pro and college tracks, permit players to return to school after going undrafted by the NBA and ban cheating coaches for life.The independent commission, led by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, released a detailed 60-page report Wednesday, seven months after the group was formed by the NCAA in response to a federal corruption investigation that rocked college basketball. Ten people, including some assistant coaches, have been charged in a bribery and kickback scheme , and high-profile programs such as Arizona, Louisville and Kansas have been tied to possible NCAA violations."The members of this commission come from a wide variety of backgrounds but the one thing that they share in common is that they believe the college basketball enterprise is worth saving," Rice told the AP Tuesday night, before addressing NCAA leaders … [Read more...] about Rice Report: Big changes needed in college basketball — including ending 1-and-done

“Where is he going?”American Heritage’s Mike Morris during football practice Wednesday, August 30, 2017. (Bruce R. Bennett / The Palm Beach Post) That question dominates all others when it comes to recruiting. Trying to discern where top football prospects will play in college is difficult, as many players aren’t sure themselves. With spring football starting on Monday and the new Palm Beach Post Big Board out today, we’ll try to predict where some of Palm Beach County’s top rising seniors will end up playing in college.The early signing period isn’t until December, and National Signing Day is slightly less than a year way. That gives these players plenty of time to make up their minds, change their minds, then decide again. Many of these predictions are likely to be wrong, but we’ll do the best we can with what we know right now. Our picks are in bold. 1.

It was a couple games into Kade Hall’s 2018 season at Montana State Billings, and the ball was rolling in left field, where Hall had never played full-time in high school nor college until that day.Instead of finding its way into Hall's glove, the ball’s momentum was halted by the outfield fence, as he whiffed on his fielding attempt.Not the best way to start a senior season, but almost everything that’s followed has been more than Hall could have ever hoped for in the conclusion of his college baseball career. × Story continues below video The 2014 Highland High graduate is batting as well as he ever has in college, as a leadoff hitter, while the first-place Yellowjackets (22-12, 21-7 Great Northwest Athletic Conference) have a 5 1/2 game advantage over the field in the conference standings.After his hiccup in left field, Hall did not get criticized when he arrived in the dugout. Quite the contrary, as there was an understanding that it was not going to be … [Read more...] about Prep Stars in College: Hall hitting high note in senior season at MSU Billings
As a child, I was never one of those kids who was always sick. As I grew up, I became aware of this and took pride in it, reassuring everyone around me that “I only get sick once a year.” This would usually happen every December when temperatures in South Florida went down slightly. It wasn’t until a few days ago, when one of my friends joked that there is something wrong with my immune system, that I realized that I am constantly sick as a college student. Almost two semesters after coming to college, I can safely say that my “only getting sick once a year” streak has been long broken. I’ve had strep twice this semester and a cold a few times this school year, so going to the health center is an activity I am more than familiar with. And as I recently sat in the waiting area, I realized that the place is always filled with sick students – and that my poor state of health is definitely not unique. In college, illness spreads rapidly. Whether … [Read more...] about Coughs, sniffles and ways to deal with being sick in college
