Rick Pitino is right. The Louisville coach wrote on his blog last week that the Big East, which will have an unwieldy 17 teams when TCU joins the league for the 2012--13 season, should be split into two divisions to make scheduling more equitable... . Kansas's 6'9" junior forward Thomas Robinson generated the most buzz at the LeBron James Skills Academy earlier this month.

The 6'4" junior tore his right ACL last week and will probably sit out the season, but the arrival of 6'5" guard P.J. Hairston, one of the best shooters in the freshman class, will bolster the perimeter game.
