they were only freshmen

-- Arizona State and Ike Diogu are fast falling out of national favor. The latest setback for the Sun Devils? An 88-66 loss to Oregon State. And to think, Rob Evans had a good thing going at Ole Miss.

-- Eastern Connecticut guard Antwoine Key died last night after collapsing during the opening minutes of a game at Worcester State. May he rest in peace.

-- Monte Hale Jr. of the Murfreesboro (TN) Daily News Journal writes that Middle Tennessee State University doesn't seem to be made of NCAA Tournament material. The Blue Raiders lack both energy and desire. A word to the wise.

-- Mike DeCourcy uses the Crawford affair as the lead in a piece on the weaknesses of this year's freshmen class. Importantly, he credits some of their struggles to the seniors who stayed. At Duke, Kansas, and North Carolina, elite former preps are stuck behind premier pros-to-be in the rotation.
