North Carolina coach Roy Williams said Theo Pinson will have surgery today in Charlotte to repair the fifth metatarsal in his right foot. There's no timetable for his return.

Some coaches strictly recruit off the high ranking & it works. OU's Lon Kruger & staff have generally evaluated impeccably- like good NBA GM

Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner just told me that he has never lost three games in a row, dating all the way back to high school. That may change as he tries to rebuild the Yellow Jackets.

UConn's perimeter should be as good as just about anyone. Key is whether a big man can step up. Steven Enoch is the X-factor for Huskies.

Here at UConn practice. Huskies fans are gonna love the backcourt of Jalen Adams and frosh Alterique Gilbert. Tough, make people better.

It's apparently "Go In On Brad Underwood Day" here at the Sprint Center. Kansas coach (and OSU alum) Bill Self's turn: "I actually showed Brad around on his recruiting visit," Self said. "I was a freshman and he was a high school senior. Thankfully Brad is a much better coach than he was a player -- he was actually a guy I was hoping we would sign because he wouldn't take too many minutes."

Huggins also just told a story about former assistant/newly hired Oklahoma State coach Brad Underwood riding a bike during practices at K-State that included the lines "He was my ops guy, he couldn't coach," and "Maybe he should [ride that elliptical] now -- ah, I can't talk."

Bob Huggins, in fine form, on his team's No. 2 spot in the Big 12 preseason coaches' poll: "Those guys all lied," Huggins said. "There isn't a guy [who voted in the poll] that doesn't think they're not going to beat us this year. Why would they vote us No. 2 if they think they're going to beat us? I don't believe them."

I've talked to multiple NBA guys who have raved about N.C. State's overall talent. It's why I'll have them firmly in my Preseason Power Rankings -- despite some concerns about Gottfried. Dennis Smith has looked phenomenal to everyone who has been through Raleigh -- and the ball shouldn't stick nearly as much with him running the show as it did with Cat Barber. Smith should be a clear-cut lottery pick -- if he stays healthy. Skilled 7-footer Omer Yurtseven (possible first-rounder) still isn't cleared, but staff is confident he'll only miss a few games. Keys are a healthy Terry Henderson and addition of Charlotte transfer Torin Dorn. No glaring holes with this team. Athletic, have size, experience, depth, terrific PG. N.C. State has Top 10 overall talent.
