    The NCAA suspended University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino for the first five Atlantic Coast Conference games next season following an investigation into the program's basketball escorts case. Pitino's suspension is just one penalty levied against the program, which was put on probation. Former staffer Andre McGee was hit with a 10-year show cause penalty after the NCAA said Pitino failed to monitor McGee, a former director of basketball operations at Louisville.

    A two-month investigation by a Nebraska prosecutor has identified seven people who threatened referee John Higgins after Kentucky’s 75-73 NCAA tournament loss to North Carolina last March. Those seven people could eventually face charges from the FBI or authorities in their jurisdictions, Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov told the Associated Press on Friday. “Based on the investigation’s findings, our office has determined that no local charges will be filed and that pursuit of any criminal charges would be best served by deferring to authorities in the appropriate jurisdictions,” Polikov said in a statement. Kentucky coach John Calipari incited a firestorm...

    North Carolina lawmakers filed a bill on Monday that would pull North Carolina and NC State from the Atlantic Coast Conference if the conference boycotted the state again amid the fallout of House Bill 2. House Bill 728 says that if a college conference boycotts North Carolina, then state schools that are a part of that conference would be prohibited from extending the grant of media rights to that conference. The ACC and NCAA had pulled championship events out of North Carolina until HB2 — known as the “bathroom bill” — was repealed. The bill, which was widely decried as...

    "Realistically you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow," LaVar told The Orange County Register on Thursday. "I told Lonzo, 'One of these games you might need to go for 30 or 40 points.' It turned out that was the one game. Then once they get to the Elite 8, they're right there." This season, UCLA started three white players: TJ Leaf, Bryce Alford, and Thomas Welsh.

    The NCAA is threatening to remove North Carolina from consideration to host championship games for the foreseeable future if the state does not repeal a law regulating public restrooms, locker rooms and showers on the basis of biological sex. The collegiate sports league will announce championship locations from 2018 to 2022 on April 18, and it said North Carolina will not be among them unless HB2 is repealed.

    UPDATE: A spokesperson for Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian has confirmed that UCLA is funding part of the cost for the basketball team’s trip to Tennessee. Like a shell-game, they claimed that it isn’t state funds that are going to this trip — those funds are used for other things, like paying the salaries of people going on the trip and supporting the trip. Nazarian’s spokesperson said these funds are coming from ticket sales and other sources. It’s like a shell game. Just move funds around to limit exposure and liability. The funds that are going to pay for this trip could...

    It was a close, emotional game Sunday afternoon in Indianapolis between Wichita State and Kentucky. And according to several reports, one prominent fan may have gotten a bit too into the action. Several outlets posted photos and video of Lynn Marshall, the wife of Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall, engaging in some spirited behavior during the game. Several reports indicated that her behavior turned belligerent, to the point where she was asked by arena security to leave her seat. And one report said that MarshallÂ’s daughter admitted that her mom was drunk. Also on Mediaite James Comey: Our Analysts...

    Duke athletes were attacked when the liberal and soon to be disbarred DA, Mike Nifong, unjustly prosecuted Duke Lacrosse players in the infamous hooker rape case. Now, another disbarred attorney, Barak Hussein Obama set into motion the conditions that propelled the Duke basketball team to lose in the NCAA tournament. Obama wanted to protect confused little boys that don't want to pee in urinals or girls who do. The governor of North Carolina signed into law a bill that the ever PC NCAA protested by moving the 2017 tourney out of Greensboro, North Carolina. So Duke, a 2 seed, played...

    Take your jaw off the floor. We'll wait. The mighty Duke Blue Devils, one week ago crowned ACC tournament champions and discussed as a probable No. 1 seed, were handed a a stunning loss on Sunday night to the feel-good South Carolina Gamecocks, a team that hadn't won an NCAA tournament game since 1973 and had never seen the Sweet 16. The ACC blue blood losing to the SEC also-ran was surprising enough, but even more so given that SC was 7-35 from the floor at halftime with the game playing out just as everyone expected. Then, out of nowhere, the Gamecocks shot 71%...

    HOUSTON (AP) — A lawsuit filed against Baylor University by 10 women alleging they were sexually assaulted while students can proceed, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. The women, identified as "Jane Doe" plaintiffs, allege Baylor was indifferent to or ignored claims of sexual assault and didn't enforce federal general discrimination protections. Baylor had sought to have the lawsuit dismissed, arguing the former students' allegations were insufficient to state a claim of liability and the women had failed to plausibly allege they were subjected to "further" harassment after reporting their initial sexual assaults. -snip- Pitman did dismiss claims for four of...

    The network reached out to Trump’s staff and invited the president to fill out a bracket on-camera, just as President Barack Obama had the past several years. The network recently received word that Trump has passed. An ESPN spokesman said in a statement: “We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined.” White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email to The Washington Post: “We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future.” Neither the White House nor ESPN had any details on what other opportunities...

President Trump declined ESPN’s invitation to fill out an NCAA bracket on a March Madness televised special, the way Barack Obama had done before him. ESPN reached out to the White House to see if Trump would consider it. However, according to a spokesman for the worldwide leader: “We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined.”
