Vasquez Staying at U-Md., Giving Terps Plenty of Guards

So Greivis Vasquez opted not to take the leap and will return to Maryland next season. While that news should bolster the Terrapins' lineup, it does leave a logjam in the backcourt, especially with the addition of junior college shooting guard Tyree Evans. If the current roster holds, that leaves...

Webby Fires Back at Zook; Zook Coming to Town

That Saban Rule is getting plenty of ink. After Illinois Coach Ron Zook last week wondered about the ethics between college football coaches and recruiting Web sites, the head of one site has fired back: Writes Bobby Burton of Rivals.com: "This new rule has nothing to do with Rivals.com; it's...
