ESPN Stats & Info: This is the first time Duke and Kentucky have been ranked in the same football AP poll since the Sept. 14, 1957 poll. They have been ranked in the same basketball AP poll 547 teams in that span.

I'm sure the NCAA's new "NET" metric will be an improvement over RPI. Capping a win to only 10 points will decrease it's predictive value which will also muddle things because the metric is used to define the quadrants. This will make wins over a team that usually dominates and wins over teams that only win by a couple points more equitable than they should be.

For those interested: there's a basketball tournament supporting a good cause this weekend in the Bronx. The 13th annual Gardiner Memorial Basketball Classic Tournament will be held Aug 18 & 19 at St. James Park. The free event features some of the top street basketball teams on the East Coast.  It's run by The Gardiner Foundation, a nonprofit group that provides educational scholarships and financial and emotional support to families who have experienced an unexpected tragic loss. Bronx resident Dexter Gardiner created the foundation and tournament after six members of his family were killed in 2006 in a crash on the Bronx River Parkway. At the Tournament, the Gardiner Foundation will announce eight $1,000 scholarships to college-bound Bronx high school seniors and distribute 20 tablets and 750 backpacks filled with school supplies to the school-age children.

Espn no.8 Josh Green cut his final list to six schools. He gives his thoughts to Espn on each program. Villanova: "A great school. They have an extremely successful history, especially over the last few years, winning two national championships. They have a great coaching staff who are very good at developing the team and players and helping them get to the next level." UNLV: "An opportunity for me to be able to get back out on the court with my brother Jay again. This means a lot to me as he has helped me so much in my progression as a basketball player, and I'd love for us to win a Mountain West title and help keep the program getting better and better." UNC: "A program with amazing history and they are consistently successful both as a team, and also at developing players. Growing up as a kid it was my dream school, so it's very cool for me to be able to say I could have the opportunity to play there, and for Roy Williams." Kansas: "Also a school with a history of success, and they have had many good guards come through the school and achieve great things." Arizona: "They have been with me since the start. They have a great program and staff who have really developed players well and have been very successful every year in the Pac 12." USC: "They have already got about the best recruiting class in my age group, and will be a top team in 2019. Their program is very strong and I know I would come out a much better player."

Spoke with SG Josh Green about his recruiting process. He is thinking about UNC, Arizona, Villanova, Kansas, Michigan, and USC. Kentucky is now making a real push. He will look to cut his list right after the July period. Green is one of the more versatile and mature guards in the country. ‬He recently jumped into the top 10 of the ESPN 100.

I recently spoke with Collin Sexton on some of the adjustments in the game from middle school to the NBA. 1. Middle school to high school: "Learn the game, don't just play the game." 2. High school to college: "Scouting report defense and the ability to read a defense. I watched a lot of film. Be ready to watch a lot of film." 3. College basketball to the NBA: "Nobody graduates. As a rookie you are playing against five and ten year veterans in practice and in games."

Nuggets president and ex-Missouri guard Josh Kroenke to ESPN's The Undefeated on drafting Missouri forward Michael Porter, Jr.: "Michael is an incredible talent and we were surprised to see him available at #14. We know the risks associated with him due to his recent back injury at Missouri, but he's an incredibly hard worker, is an outstanding young man, and we think he will fit in well with our up and coming group in Denver."

Baylor picks up a strong verbal commitment from 6'7" Jordan Turner. The small forward plays with effort and is one of the better 3-point shooters in the class.
