Mike Qualls: My time at the University of Arkansas has not only helped me grow as a basketball player, but also as a man and I'm very thankful for the guidance the coaching staff and everyone at the university has given me over my three years. After sitting with my family I felt the best decision for me is to continue my basketball career as a professional. I'm ready to provide for my family and my son. I can't say thank you enough to the Razorback fans. Coming in as a kid from Louisiana the embraced me from the start like I was one of their own and have always shown me an amazing amount of support. That means a lot to me and I'll forever be a Razorback. Twitter

Lauren Hill touched a nation with her desire to play for Mount St. Joseph's women's basketball team, even as she battled an inoperable brain tumor. Her resolve, spirit and courage were celebrated Nov. 2 when she realized her dream at Xavier University's Cintas Center. Cheered on by a sold-out crowd of 10,250 and a television audience, Hill scored the first and last basket of the Mount's 66-55 victory over Hiram College. She passed away Friday at the age of 19.

Cuban said he doesn't enjoy watching the college game, but his bigger concern is the physical, slow-down style that has become common in the NCAA results in prospects who are poorly prepared to make the jump to the NBA. "If they want to keep kids in school and keep them from being pro players, they're doing it the exact right way by having the 35-second shot clock and having the game look and officiated the way it is," Cuban said Wednesday night. "Just because kids don't know how to play a full game of basketball. "You've got three kids passing on the perimeter. With 10 seconds on the shot clock, they try to make something happen and two other kids stand around. They don't look for anything and then run back on defense, so there's no transition game because two out of five or three out of five or in some cases four out of five kids aren't involved in the play. "It's uglier than ugly, and it's evidenced by the scoring going down. When the NBA went through that, we changed things." ESPN.com

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan vented his frustration with officials on live television after the loss. In his interview outside the locker room just minutes after the final buzzer sounded, Ryan said that there was more contact in the national title game than any other game the Badgers played all year. “You just have to be able to handle all the hands and the checking. There was more body contact in this game than any game we’ve played all year, and I just feel sorry for my guys that all of a sudden a game was like that. I think they had a… they’re struggling with that a little bit. We missed some opportunities, they hit some tough shots, but you know — it’s just a shame that it had to be played that way.” For The Win
