UNC basketball coach Roy Williams is in Nashville this morning, heading to a hearing where he is facing questions from the NCAA regarding his knowledge and potential involvement in an academic scandal that allegedly spanned nearly two decades in Chapel Hill. Williams has been adamant that he had no knowledge of the academic impropriety that the NCAA says improperly benefitted UNC athletes. Williams has not been accused of wrongdoing. UNC faces five allegations none of which involve academic fraud. However the Committee on Infractions could add allegations during the course of the hearing which is scheduled for today and tomorrow and is closed to both the public and the media.

A watershed moment that may have a significant impact on the tenuous relationship between the billion dollar college sports industry and academics is playing out here in Nashville this morning. The University of North Carolina has finally come before the NCAA Committee on Infractions to address five allegations, including lack of institutional control, which stem from an academic scandal that allegedly spanned nearly two decades in Chapel Hill and involved hundreds of UNC athletes. Head basketball coach Roy Williams will be questioned about his knowledge and possible role in the scandal. The NCAA will also question head football coach Larry Fedora, and women's basketball coach Sylvia Hatchell. The hearing is closed to the public and media and the outcome may not be known for weeks if not months.

The university gets its chance to make its case against five allegations, including lack of institutional control, involving paper classes in the now disgraced Department of African and Afro-American Studies.

My Marvin Bagley III player comparisons at the same stage. More offensive minded but less of a defensive presence than Anthony Davis. Displays the same scoring punch as Chris Bosh but a better rebounder. Go back to the 80's and think of a more talented Sam Perkins. With all that said Bagley has a lot of work to do but he has so much to work with.

Duke announces the signing of No. 1 prospect Marvin Bagley III:

Duke now has landed their 3rd no.1 player in the ESPN era with the addition of Marvin Bagley III. Giles (2016) and Okafor (2014).

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Marvin Bagley III completely changes the landscape of college basketball this season, pushing Duke to the No. 1 spot in the preseason. The Blue Devils' starting lineup will include the No. 1 incoming point guard, the No. 1 incoming shooting guard, last year's Preseason Player of the Year, the No. 1 incoming overall prospect and the No. 5 incoming overall prospect.

About an hour until No. 1 prospect Marvin Bagley III makes his college decision -- and decides whether to reclassify and graduate high school. Duke, USC or UCLA. Bagley is perhaps the best prospect to come out of high school since Anthony Davis in 2011. Would immediately make Duke preseason No. 1, would make USC the most talented team in the country, and would get UCLA back in the national conversation despite losing four starters.
