- Travis Ford leaves UMass for Oklahoma State. He got himself a nice $9.1 million deal. IMO OSU is going to regret this 7 year deal. What has Ford done to deserve this sort of contract? Oooh... he took his team to the NIT finals. Wow.
- UCLA's Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook, and Luc Richard Mbah declare for the NBA draft. That pretty much makes Arizona the preseason favorite in the PAC-10.
