    The faculty of the University of Kentucky's African American and Africana Studies program are now asking UK president Eli Capilouto to remove the name of Rupp Arena because of the famed Kentucky Wildcats basketball coach Adolph Rupp's racist past in not recruiting black basketball players save for 7-2 Tom Payne in 1969 in his 41 years as coach:

    Former Connecticut Huskies star Stanley "Sticks" Robinson dies in Birmingham on Tuesday. He made a windmill dunk during the 2009 six-overtime game against Syracuse.

    The ACC proposes a 346-team NCAA tournament. Not sure how practical or workable that will be. Would require multiple regional bubbles, though I would be glad to see more mid-major schools invoilved with postseason action in what shape as an odd 2020-21 season:
