    Awaiting the Penny Hardaway statement in response.

    You can't have it both ways, Memphis. You can't offer your "support" for a corrupt coach and claim you'll accept the blame for violations.
    This was entirely predictable. If absolutely nobody knew about this other than Hardaway, one of two things is probably true: 1) They didn't ask him about the sudden move of Wiseman when they were interviewing Hardaway; and/or 2) He didn't tell them.

    "The University of Memphis has high standards of ethical conduct for all faculty, staff and students, and we take seriously any allegations or conduct that is not aligned with our mission. We will acknowledge and accept any responsibility for proven violations of NCAA bylaws. The University of Memphis firmly supports James, Coach Hardaway and our men's basketball program in this matter."

    Memphis got an emergency restraining order that allowed the kid to play tonight.

    Utah sets a record for point differential against a D-1 opponent beating Mississippi Valley St. by 94, 143-49.

    But, it's not even the biggest point differential of the night because Grambling beat something called Ecclesia by 95, 147-52.

    On Blowout Friday, 6 other teams won by more than 50 points: Towson, Yale, Cal Baptist, Utah State, Georgia Southern and Campbell.

    And 9 more teams won by 40 or more, including the more expected powerhouses like Kentucky and Memphis.

    Looks like we'll have three No. 1 teams in three weeks. Kentucky just lost at home to Evansville, 67-64.
    I don't know anything about Evansville's team this year, but does this rank in the pantheon of great upsets? Or at least great regular season upsets?

    Didn't know that Walter McCarty coached Evansville. How great to come back home and do that.

    I only just learned from Twitter that Walter McCarty is Evansville's coach. Since I covered him in college and with the Celts, all I know about the game is that I am old.

    Biggest upset in college basketball since Chaminade over Virginia.

    Regular season, at least.
    UMBC over Virginia in the Tournament seems bigger overall because of the stakes and historical factor. This won't keep Kentucky out of the Tournament -- although it'll be interesting to see how Evansville's season turns out and how much this helps with their seeding or status as a potential at-large.
