—The U of L women’s basketball team has added three transfers, and all three are former McDonald’s All-Americans.

—After a huge weekend sweep of NC State, Louisville is up to No. 8 in this week’s D-I Baseball top 25 poll.

—Mallory Comerford is once again the ACC Swimmer of the Year on the women’s side.

—This is awesome.

—LSU has reinstated Will Wade as its head coach because of course they have.

—Virginia’s Ty Jerome has announced that he is hiring an agent and declaring for the NBA Draft.

I enjoy this, because everything Jerome does that isn’t on a basketball court against Louisville is pretty cool.

—College basketball’s last 10 national champions shows that experience, in a fairly high degree, matters.

—A week after its monumental series win over No. 3 Florida State, the Louisville softball team took a weekend series from Boston College.

—Big Red Louie hopes that a fresh start could mean big things for Jawon Pass.

This wound up being the night he dropped 46.

—Eric Crawford examines the field of Kentucky Derby contenders with less than three weeks to go before the big race.

—Cincinnati has hired former Northern Kentucky head coach John Brannen to fill its coaching vacancy. I think he can do really well there, but former Bearcat players don’t seem particularly thrilled about the hire. That’s mostly because UC didn’t hire Nick Van Exel.

Big Ten 1

Final Fours Made:

ACC 28
SEC 13
Big Ten 10

—The hoop is gone from Paisley Park, but Prince’s legend as a basketball player lives on.
