Youngsters shine in UVa hoops scrimmage

+

The Virginia basketball team held an intrasquad scrimmage today that was open to the public. Our friend Whitey Reid was there and came away with rave reviews, especially on Justin Anderson and the incoming first-years. Check out his thoughts, and especially his video, and know that we are just 21 days away from live UVA hoops action.

Coming at you by way of the Wall Street Journal, here's a grid of every FBS school based how embarrassed the fan base should feel. Surprisingly, Virginia is in the correct quadrant -- both more of a powerhouse than a weakling, and more admirable than embarrassing. Good work, team.

Ken Pomeroy: Mike Scott is VERY good at basketball

+

Newsflash! Mike Scott is amazing. This is according to Ken Pomeroy's analysis of CBSSports.com's shot location data. Even the most ardent Wahoo fan could be impressed with just how well the numbers shake this out. Pomeroy writes that Scott had the highest mid-range FG% and the highest "long-range 2" % in all of college basketball last season, shooting 53.7% and an absurd 56.0%, respectively. KenPom also brings up a good question - why shoot so times with a heel on the three-point arc? Sure the shots always went in, but could Scott have been more efficient from another foot or two further back? Thanks to @rmj_equals_hero for passing this along.

NCAA Tennis Rules Update: The World is Not Ending

+

On Tuesday, I spoke about proposed changes to the structure of the NCAA Tennis Championship that had the college tennis world up in arms. The most controversial parts of the plan were changing the third set to a 10-game "super tiebreak" and shortening doubles matches from 8 games to 6. Last night, it was announced that this part of the plan will not be adopted after all. As the Daily Progress's Whitey Reid discusses in the linked article, it seems that the loud and united reaction against the plan was what made the Committee reconsider. This reminds me of discussions last year about extending the field of the NCAA Basketball Tournament to 96 teams; information about the plan was leaked, public reaction was overwhelmingly negative, and the plan was dropped in favor of adding just 4 teams. Likewise, the NCAA will make some minor (and more welcome) changes to streamline the tennis championship. For example, they expect to: • Remove the warm-up with the opponent before singles and doubles; • Reduce the time between singles and doubles to five minutes (currently 10); and • Shorten each changeover from 90 seconds to 60. Fine with me! Full release here.
