Lindsey Wilson College Signs Julian Edmonson for 2014-15

Lindsey Wilson College has signed athletic guard Julian Edmonson for the 2014-15 season.

Edmonson averaged 10.6 points per game at Abilene Christian University last season.

Here is a release from LWC:

COLUMBIA, Ky. – The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball program signed Julian Edmonson to its 2014-15 recruiting class, head coach Paul Peck announced on Thursday.

"We needed a great shooter and athlete at the second guard position and are lucky to sign Julian," Peck said. "He is an excellent shooter and a very strong, physical player that had success at the NCAA Division I level."

Edmonson, a 6-foot-1 inch guard from Fort Worth, Texas, joins the Blue Raiders after playing a season with Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas. Edmonson appeared in 29 games for the Wildcats where he averaged 10.6 points and 18.7 minutes per game. His largest scoring output came on Feb. 22 when he dropped 33 points on 12-of-18 shooting in a win over Southwestern Adventist (Texas).

Edmonson also recorded games of 27 and 26 points last season while shooting 38.9 percent from the field, including 37.6 percent from beyond the arc.

Edmonson played his sophomore season at Independence Community College (Kan.) where he appeared in 30 games, averaging 9.4 points per game off the bench. Twice during the season he made six three-pointers in a game and finished the year shooting 37.9 percent from three-point range.

At Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Worth, Edmonson averaged 17.0 points, 4.0 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals his senior season. He earned Co-Offensive Player of the Year honors in 2011 and appeared in the Dallas-Fort Worth East-West All-Star Game and the North Texas Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Game in his time at Fossil Ridge.

"I expect Julian and D'on Hall to be a very potent one-two punch this season," Peck said.

NBA Draft: Joel Embiid Suffers Stress Fracture, Will Undergo Surgery

Former Kansas big man Joel Embiid has suffered a stress fracture in his foot and will be forced to undergo surgery.

While it's hard to predict what will happen in an NBA Draft, this will almost certainly impact some decisions near the top of next week's draft:



According to Yahoo! Sports:

Embiid, the projected No. 1 overall pick, consulted with renowned orthopedist Dr. Richard Ferkel on the injury, which sources believe happened over a week ago. Along with a back injury that caused Embiid to miss the last six games during his one college season, it becomes increasingly unlikely that Embiid will still be Cleveland's choice as the No. 1 overall pick.

Suddenly, Duke's Jabari Parker and Kansas' Andrew Wiggins become serious considerations for Cleveland in the top spot of next Thursday's draft. Draftexpress.com believes Embiid could drop to the Orlando Magic with the fourth overall pick.

Former EKU Guard Glenn Cosey Inks Pro Contract in France

Former Eastern Kentucky University guard Glenn Cosey has signed a professional deal with ALM Evreux Basket in France's second-level ProB league.

Cosey averaged 18.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game last season for the Colonels. He helped lead the team to the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament championship and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Here is more from Eurobasket.com:

ALM Evreux Basket (ProB) signed 22-year old American point guard Glenn Cosey (183-83kg-92, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management). He just graduated from E.Kentucky (NCAA). In 31 games he had very impressive stats: 18.6ppg, 3.3rpg, 4.2apg and 1.2spg last season. He helped them to win OVC Tournament and end the regular season as the second best team in the conference. Quite impressive season as he was named to All-OVC 1st Team, NABC Division I All-District 19 1st Team and OVC All-Tournament Team. As mentioned above Cosey is just out of the college and it will be his first season as a pro.

Kenneth Faried Mentioned in Trade Rumors Involving Kevin Love

The Denver Nuggets are reportedly working on a deal that could involve trading former Morehead State star Kenneth Faried and several others to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Kevin Love.

Here are details from CBSSports.com:

So this is weird. For starters, the Nuggets would likely have to move the No. 11 to get Afflalo from the Magic, which is ironic, since the Nuggets traded Afflalo and their right to the No. 12 pick to Orlando in the Dwight Howard trade to get Andre Iguodala.

So presumably, the Nuggets would send No. 11 (which they're pretty well known to be looking to trade) for Afflalo, then send those three players to Minnesota for Kevin Love.

Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, and Arron Afflalo for Kevin Love? That sound better than the plethora of picks that Boston is offering, or the combination of quality veterans and picks the Bulls have on the table? The Wolves would then, barring more moves, start Ricky Rubio, Arron Afflalo, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, and Nikola Pekovic. That roster looks a lot like the 2012 Nuggets. But then, that team made the playoffs.

Former Louisville guard Kevin Ware has been granted a waiver by the NCAA and will be able to play immediately at Georgia State.

Here's more from ESPN:

Former Louisville guard Kevin Ware has received a waiver from the NCAA to play this season at Georgia State.

Georgia State coach Ron Hunter told ESPN.com that Ware, who suffered a gruesome broken leg against Duke in the 2013 NCAA tournament, was cleared on Wednesday morning by the NCAA.

"I think it's definitely the right thing to do," Hunter told ESPN.com. "Emotionally for the kid. Physically, he's fine. But this will be a huge weight lifted off his shoulders."

The 6-foot-2 Ware averaged 1.7 points in nine games last season before deciding to shut it down in mid-December and apply for a medical redshirt.

Monceaux spent the last three seasons as an assistant at Faulkner University in Montgomery.

Former Trinity Star Josh Sewell Transfers to Bellarmine University

Former Trinity High School star will transfer to Bellarmine University for the 2014-15 season.

Sewell has been at Miami (Ohio) and will have one year of eligibility remaining.

Here is a release from BU:

LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Bellarmine University Head Basketball Coach Scott Davenport announced today that former Trinity High School standout Josh Sewell will transfer into the Knights' program for the 2014-15 season. Sewell, a 6-5 guard who was the runner-up in the 2010 Mr. Basketball voting, will have one year of eligibility after graduating from Miami (Ohio) University this past spring.

"When I say WE are thrilled to have Josh in our basketball program I am referring to our entire program staff, players, support staff, etc.," Davenport said. "I have followed Josh's career since he was part of the outstanding program at Trinity. He is very, very professional in his approach to every aspect of his life. He will truly be an asset to the Bellarmine community and the entire Louisville community not just as he performs on the basketball court but for many years to come. He is an outstanding young man.

"As a player he is a winner!" Davenport added. "He has a super body which is a result of his dedication to the game. He plays the whole game, affecting the game in a lot of ways, a trait all great players have."

Sewell, who was a pre-law/public administration major, earned his bachelor's degree this May from Miami and will enter Bellarmine's graduate school of communication this fall. The Louisville native said he wants the opportunity to compete for a national title at Bellarmine.

"First and foremost, I'm certainly thankful, honored and humbled for the opportunity to come home and play for Bellarmine University," Sewell said. "It's a great academic institution. Above all, the team is a really good group of guys and Coach Scotty Davenport is a great coach. It's nice to finally be part of a team that's cohesive and great friends on and off the court, and I'm definitely excited to play with them. We are already working hard to make it back to the national championship."

As a high schooler, Sewell was a two-time all-state selection and left the Shamrock program as its leading scorer after amassing 1,485 career points. He was a two-time captain, and helped Trinity to three 20-win seasons.

Mike Szabo, Sewell's coach at Trinity, said, "I am so excited for Josh to come home and continue his playing career at Bellarmine. For him to have the opportunity to play for coach Davenport, to compete for a national championship is an awesome opportunity. Then when you parlay that with a graduate degree from Bellarmine University it becomes even more special.

Morehead State Heading to the Bahamas for Exhibition Tour

Morehead State men's basketball will head to the Bahamas in August for a preseason exhibition tour.

Aug. 9: vs. Grand Bahamas All-Stars
Aug. 10: vs. Real Deal Shockers
Aug. 11: vs. Pyramid Food Rockets

Here are details from MSU:

MOREHEAD, Ky. -- The Morehead State men's basketball program has finalized a preseason trip to the Bahamas, which includes three exhibition games against international competition. The Eagles are scheduled to depart the morning of Aug. 8 and return to campus the evening of Aug. 13.

Morehead State is slated to face the Grand Bahamas All-Stars (Aug. 9), Real Deal Shockers (Aug. 10) and Pyramid Food Rockets (Aug. 11). All contests will be played at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium in Nassau. Opposing teams will include former NCAA Division I and II players.

"Our coaches and student-athletes are looking forward to this trip," Head Coach Sean Woods said. "The Bahamas will be a great way to wrap up the summer and head into the fall semester. We will treat this like a business trip, but there will also be some time to relax and have fun."

Alabama State, Chattanooga, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Louisiana Tech, North Carolina, Northern Arizona, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Pittsburgh, Portland State and Samford will join MSU in the Bahamas for exhibition games, but NCAA rules do not allow U.S. teams to play each other at this time.

"There will be some terrific teams in the Bahamas during the month of August," Woods said. "When you talk about Kentucky, North Carolina and Ohio State, you talk about programs that have been to the Final Four in recent years. It should be really enjoyable for the fans in attendance."

Morehead State is expected to begin its summer practice schedule on July 28. Per NCAA rules, Division I programs are allowed a maximum of 10 workouts prior to leaving for foreign trips. The Eagles have not been abroad since the summer of 2007 when they visited Canada.

"This trip should really help our team chemistry," Woods said. "I'm also glad that we get 10 practices before leaving. Most of our young men have been away from Morehead during the first summer session, so the workouts will be a good opportunity to see where we're at as a program."

DeCourcy Ranks Andrew Harrison No. 5 on List of Top Point Guards

Mike DeCourcy of SportingNews.com has ranked the top point guards in college basketball for the 2014-15 season.

DeCourcy ranks North Carolina's Marcus Paige at No. 1 followed by Utah's Delon Wright. West Virginia's Juwan Staten is No. 3 and SMU freshman Emmanuel Mudiay is No. 4. Kentucky's Andrew Harrison rounds out the top 5.

Here is an excerpt about Harrison:

5. Andrew Harrison, Kentucky

Size: 6-6, 215 pounds

Stats: 10.9 ppg, 4.0 rpg

Class: Sophomore

Harrison’s primary problem as a freshman was frequently playing it too cool — his teammates needed to see more passion, more fire, more hunger. Even during the surge to the NCAA championship game these qualities were only evident for periodic stretches.

Harrison has not demonstrated elite qualities as a shooter, passer or defender. But he excels at using his size to overwhelm smaller defenders (most are) and either score over them or force fouls. His 208 free throw attempts represented an impressive number for a player who was only moderately active in terms of trying to score. Given his physical qualities and skill set, what would elevate Harrison to elite status is greater intensity on defense — which would lead to better offensive opportunities — and an improved 3-point shot.

Morehead State Adds Liberty Transfer Chad Donley

Morehead State has landed Liberty transfer Chad Donley for the 2014-15 season.

Donley averaged 1.4 points per game for Liberty last season.

Here is a release from MSU:

MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Chad Donley, a 6-foot-2 guard who has spent the past two seasons at Big South Conference member Liberty, is set to join the Morehead State men's basketball program this fall. He has one year of college eligibility remaining.

Liberty captured the 2013 Big South Tournament title and played in the NCAA Tournament. Donley averaged 2.8 points as a sophomore in 2012-13 and 1.4 points as a junior in 2013-14. He drilled 31 percent from three-point range both seasons.

Donley spent the 2011-12 season at Northwest Florida State College. He averaged 6.9 points and shot 41 percent from long distance, while helping the Raiders to a 32-2 overall record and National Junior College Athletic Association runner-up finish.

"Chad will be a nice addition for the 2014-15 season, and our staff is looking forward to working with him," Head Coach Sean Woods said. "Chad has already been on some successful college teams and wants to be part of a special year at Morehead State."

Donley, who earned four varsity letters at Baker School (Fla.), averaged 22 points, five rebounds, five assists and five steals his final prep campaign. He earned four all-area awards, including a pair of first-team honors, and led the Gators to two district crowns.

"Chad has the potential to give us depth at the guard position," Woods said. "He's a specialty player who can consistently knock down shots. He has the ability to give us offense off the bench, which is important for the overall success of our team."

Campbellsville University Signs Shawn Johnson, Dominique Harding for 2014-15

Campbellsville University has announced the signings of Shawn Johnson (Mason County) and Dominique Harding (Elizabethtown).

Here is a release from CU:

CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University men's basketball signed two high school senior post players this spring to start its 2014-15 recruiting class.

Shawn Johnson of Mason County High School and Dominique Harding of Elizabethtown High School will join sophomore post players Elliott Young and Demarcus Page as underclassmen in the paint.

"For the second year in a row, we feel that we have signed two very good high school post players. Last year, we felt that signing Elliott Young and Demarcus Page was a great accomplishment," said Keith Adkins CU head coach. "We thought both would be solid contributors, immediately. Looking back, they probably gave us more than anyone imagined they would. Elliott finished the season as our starting four man and Demarcus was a part time starter and major contributor off the bench.

Harding and Johnson were among the state's top senior post players, as both received an invite to tryout for the Kentucky All-Stars.

"It gets more and more difficult to find quality post players every year. So, to be able to get multiple post players of this quality in back to back years is a major step forward for our program. Dominique Harding and Shawn Johnson will be very good players for us. Looking ahead to their time together, they are perfect compliments to each other," said Adkins.

Harding, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound forward from Elizabethtown, joins the Tigers after averaging 12.9 points and 6.5 rebounds per game this past season for the Elizabethtown Panthers. He scored a season-high 26 points, while shooting 10-of-12 from the field, against Lockland High (Ohio) late in his senior season, and collected five double-doubles. He shot 56.5 percent from the floor for the season, including a 70 percent success rate in the paint.

"Dominique is a young man that is physically ready to play at this level. He already has a great frame and will continue to get stronger as he matures," said Adkins. "He has a great skill set and is very athletic. He has a chance to be that low post guy that doesn't come around too often. Learning the defensive end of the floor and becoming that dominant rebounder will determine how quickly he finds a spot in the rotation."

Johnson, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound forward from Maysville, Ky., placed in the Top 10 in two Kentucky High School Athletic Association statistical categories in 2013-14. Johnson's 62 percent field goal percentage (145-of-234) from the floor was the ninth-best in the state, and his 10.8 rebounds per game tied for the sixth-best performance. As a junior, he averaged 14.5 points and 10 rebounds through 27 games, while shooting 59.4 percent. In February, he became the 21st Mason County player to score 1,000 career points.

"Shawn is a high energy forward that may surprise a lot of people. The only thing that could hold him back, initially, is his lack of bulk. He is a little thin, at this stage of his career, but he more than makes up for it with his energy," said Adkins. "Despite needing to add some pounds, he is a very tough competitor. He is a very good athlete, especially getting up and down the floor. Shawn was a state track champion and he translates this to the basketball floor very well."

Preston Spradlin Joins Men's Basketball Staff at Morehead State University

Preston Spradlin has joined the men's basketball staff at Morehead State University as an assistant coach.

Spradlin comes to Morehead State from the University of Kentucky, where he served as assistant director of basketball operations.

Here is a release from MSU:

MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Preston Spradlin, who has spent the past five seasons on the men's basketball staff at Kentucky, has been named an assistant coach at Morehead State. His time will be spent in a variety of areas, including recruiting, scouting, practice/game preparation and academics monitoring.

Spradlin spent two seasons (2009-11) as a graduate assistant with the Wildcats before three years as the assistant director of basketball operations (2011-14). His duties included film breakdown, creating and maintaining playbooks, assisting with opponent scouting and day-to-day operations.

"I'm looking forward to the opportunity at Morehead State," Spradlin said. "This was an easy and difficult decision at the same time. It was easy because I'm ready to be an assistant coach who can recruit and instruct on the floor, but difficult because we've had so much success at Kentucky."

In his most-recent post, Spradlin was responsible for film exchange and created a variety of opponent and self-scouting edits for UK coaches and players. He also worked with personnel from the National Basketball Association, while assisting in other aspects of basketball operations.

"I want to welcome Preston and his family," MSU Head Coach Sean Woods said. "We're excited to have Preston because he's a hard worker and great communicator. He has spent five years with a highly successful program and brings a championship mentality to what we're doing."

Spradlin, a native of Pikeville, Ky., served as director of the John Calipari Basketball Camps and Clinics from 2012-14. He was the primary contact for satellite tour stops across the state of Kentucky and coordinated the first-ever Basketball Fantasy Experience for UK's head coach.

"I've been very fortunate to this point in my career," Spradlin said. "I want to thank the administrators and coaches at Kentucky for giving me an opportunity to get started. I also want to thank the administrators and coaches at Morehead State for allowing me to take this next step."

Spradlin worked with the Dominican Republic National Team during the summers of 2011 and 2012. The squad reached its highest finish and won the bronze medal in the Tournament of the America's Olympic Qualifier in 2011 and came within one game of qualifying for the 2012 Olympics.

TMZ: Nerlens Noel Accused of Not Paying Child Support

According to TMZ, former Kentucky star Nerlens Noel is being accused of not paying child support.

Here’s an excerpt from TMZ:

It’s a nasty fight between Nerlens and a woman named Jamie — who claims the 20-year-old signed an affidavit in May 2013 (one week after the child was born) admitting he is the father. She claims the two remained close after the pregnancy.

In legal docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Jamie claims Nerlens agreed to pay $10k per month in child support — and did for 3 months — but suddenly cut her off and hasn’t paid a dime since.

Jamie filed a lawsuit against Nerlens hoping the judge would force him to pay up — but he fired back with legal docs of his own claiming he’s not convinced he’s the real father.

In fact, in Noel’s legal docs he writes, “[He] does not have sufficient knowledge of information to know whether [Jamie] engaged in sexual relations with other men during the times pertinent to this case.”
