NCAA/Final Four

CINCINNATI --- The Xavier University men’s basketball team will have the unique opportunity to participate in a nine-day cultural and athletic trip to Brazil in August. The Musketeers, who will depart from Cincinnati on Aug. 3, will be based out of Rio de Janeiro for the duration of their trip until their return on Aug. 12.
“This is a great educational opportunity as well as a chance for our team to grow together on and off the court,” said head coach Chris Mack.
From an athletic standpoint, the team will participate in four exhibition games against top level Brazilian professional and club teams. Xavier’s squad includes seven returning scholarship letter winners, including soon-to-be senior returning starters Matt Stainbrook, Justin Martin and Dee Davis. In addition to Xavier’s current roster, the trip also provides a valuable basketball opportunity for several new faces. NCAA rules allow incoming student-athletes to compete in all games and participate in all practices related to this trip, which means the exhibitions will be the debut of Xavier’s national-ranked 2014 recruiting class, including Edmond Sumner, J.P. Macura, Trevon Bluiett, Makinde London and Sean O’Mara. Junior Remy Abell, an Indiana University transfer who sat out 2013-14 due to NCAA transfer regulations, will also be permitted to participate in all games and practices. XU will be permitted 10 practices at Xavier prior to the Aug. 3 departure. MORE

AP: One-and-done working just fine for UK

Everyone has an opinion of John Calipari.
He's a pariah to some, successful only because of his ability to attract one-and-done stars destined for the NBA. They point to him as a scourge of college basketball, arguing that he's complicit — responsible, even — in stripping "student" from student-athletes.
Then there are those who see him as an elite coach, the architect of successful programs at UMass, Memphis and now Kentucky. He's churned out players who are making millions in the pros, and it is hard to argue that he's let any of them down.
