Brandon Triche's Italian pro basketball team advances to playoff semifinals |

I do not have any plans this summer other then to get better at my craft. NBA summer league is up in the air right now. It all depends on how the season ends for me.

Duke, SMU, Kansas, Michigan St among top PG position battles to watch - ESPN

Coach Jim Boeheim has proven the past two seasons that he’s unafraid to play an untested point guard. As he did with Michael Carter-Williams two seasons ago and Tyler Ennis this past season, Boeheim could again put the ball in the hands of a player with little point guard experience in his system. Gbinije, a 6-foot-7 junior, filled in at times for Ennis, although he’s more of a combo guard than a point. Joseph, a true freshman, will be a part of the guard rotation that includes shooting guard Trevor Cooney. Don’t be surprised if Joseph ends up like Ennis in the starting lineup early.

Syracuse men's lacrosse coach John Desko a day after upset: 'It's like losing a family member' |
"All the seniors got up and spoke," said Syracuse head coach John Desko said. "They talked about how much they'd give to be practicing this week. They encouraged the players not to take anything for granted. Really, it's like a death in the family. You wished you'd said things that you didn't or that you worked a little harder. That was the message. Don't take anything for granted."
