Five-star guard Trae Young tells ESPN will take an official visit to Oklahoma State this weekend. It will be his final official visit, but he still expects to sign late. Young has already visited Oklahoma, Kansas, Kentucky and Texas Tech.

Just looking at Wisconsin intra-squad scrimmage stats. Nigel Hayes with just two boards and 5 of his 8 shots from beyond the arc. I realize it's just a scrimmage, but he needs to get in the paint and do some work for the Badgers to be a legitimate Top 10 team. Such a difficult matchup when he relies less on the 3-ball.

Rodney McGruder, Troy Williams, Fred Van Vleet, Ron Baker, Bryan Forbes all "hard coached" in college. They fought for roster spots & won.

Davidson star guard Jack Gibbs will miss 2-3 weeks with a shoulder injury he suffered at end of yesterday's practice, coach Bob McKillop told ESPN. Gibbs has a chance to lead the country in scoring this year after putting up 23.5 points last season. McKillop said tests came back negative today and he expects Gibbs -- who is in much better condition than in the past -- to recover quickly. Gibbs will likely be back for the season-opener.

Oregon State sophomore guard Tres Tinkle on what his first season being coached by his dad was like: "We've had our learning curves for sure that's just getting used to the transition between when I can call him dad and when I call him coach. It was tough for me just to know who I'm talking to."
