where are they now?

-- Duke's Coach K: Still against ACC expansion.

-- Mike Baldwin of the Oklahoman summarizes Oklahoma State's weaknesses following a surprisingly poor performance against the Texas Longhorns. My advice for future OSU opponents? Get Eddie Sutton's players into foul trouble.

The Cowboys lack quality depth. Zone defenses have caused trouble for one of the nation's best shooting teams. Coaches don't have confidence in any of the three big men in pressure situations. Team chemistry, a strength last season, must improve. And leadership, an expected positive, was absent against the Longhorns.

-- Ever wonder what happened to then-point guard Charles Williams, the would be final piece in Bob Huggins' 1996-1997 puzzle? Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati (OH) Enquirer investigates, learning Williams continues to hold the Bearcats responsible for the ethical transgressions that led to his ineligibility. As well he should, for it takes two to tango. Few junior college transfers violate NCAA rules without help from a booster or assistant coach.

-- The Hardin County (KY) News-Enterprise praises Tubby Smith for giving Joe Crawford a second chance. The column starts and ends, however, very awkwardly. In the spirit of Crawford's more than awkward back and forth.

-- Scott Pitoniak of the Rochester (NY) Democrat & Chronicle suggests JT3's return to Georgetown is reigniting the Hoyas' rivalry with the Orange(men). I agree, even as a find Pitoniak's smile slimier than most.
