Notre Dame’s basketball teams will play in the ACC next year, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

Left Behind, UConn Ponders Starting Over Again (The New York Times)

Connecticut is not eligible to play in the Big East men’s basketball tournament, which begins Tuesday, nor can it qualify for next week’s bigger national show.

Florida State DE Chris Casher Looking Forward to Jeremy Pruitt’s Defense (

Faith Academy football players were greeted in Alumni Hall on Monday afternoon by a familiar face. Former Rams’ star and current Florida State freshman Chris Casher spent the afternoon at the school, working out and working on his footwork with former defensive line coach, Sidell Corley.
