---Evan Turner, pictured right and the consensus national player of the year, had to overcome plenty of adversity growing up in Chicago. Turner is expected to be drafted No. 2 by the Philadelphia 76ers during next week's NBA Draft.

---North Carolina freshman-to-be Harrison Barnes is the real deal. For all you old school folks he's like Walter Davis with some Paul Pierce mixed in. Hopefully Barnes doesn't play like the Game 7 vs. Lakers version of Pierce each night.

---UCF's Marcus Jordan says don't you dare compare Kobe Bryant to his dad. I'd have to agree with Marcus.   

---Contrary to reports, the Big East denies its prepared to expand.

---Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim is surprised that this round of expansion is football driven.

---Michigan may be struggling in football and basketball, but not in the pocket book. By the way, Braylon Edwards claims this is a make-or-break year for Rich Rodriguez.

---For Irish coach Lou Holtz says it's time for Notre Dame to join the Big Ten.

---Here's a look at how the Pac-10 could be divided into divisions.

---Former Charlotte coach Bobby Lutz is now an assistant at Iowa State.

---Lost in the shuffle of Thursday's news was the fact that The Knight Commission came out with a report. Maybe the fact that it barely made a splash tells you how much power this organization actually yields.
