NCAA Rumors

Calipari said he met with the NBA Player’s Association one week ago, and implored that organization to create a “combine” for high school juniors. And he thinks agents should be more involved with high school kids. “The players and the families need to know – here are the ones who should be thinking about the NBA, and here are the ones who should not,” he said. “That’s why you need a combine.”
Mike Vorkunov: As for Jay Wright, here’s what he told @DanaONeilWriter this week about jumping to the NBA. O’Neil: Before we move on to how those decisions could impact your team, what about you? Do you have any interest in moving on to the NBA? Jay Wright: I’m staying. I love it here. I love what we’re doing. I’m just really happy. I said when I was at Hofstra and I didn’t take other jobs, I used that old Jim Valvano line, Don’t mess with happy. That seemed appropriate at Hofstra until this job opened. It’s still really appropriate. I’m very happy here. I don’t need another challenge. I like happy better than a new challenge. The NBA does intrigue me. That challenge is appealing, but it’s not worth giving up working with these guys. The whole thing is, to take a new challenge you have to give up what you have. I don’t want to give up what I have. Would I like to coach in the NBA? Yes. But I have to give this up in order to do that, and I don’t see that happening.

Mikal Bridges to enter draft

Villanova junior All-American Mikal Bridges will bypass his final year of eligibility and enter the NBA draft where he’s projected to be a lottery pick, he told ESPN. Bridges, a two-time national champion and the 2018 Julius Erving Award winner as the top small forward in college basketball, is considered one of the elite two-way players in this draft class. ESPN’s Jonathan Givony has Bridges 10th overall in his most recent mock draft.
