Monday Quickies: More Programs in Hot Water Edition

New, 6 comments

The NCAA is cracking down on more basketball programs.

Significant news involving the college basketball world could be coming in the next six weeks. No, it doesn’t involve an itinerary for the upcoming season. But it will most likely involve two power schools receiving allegations from the NCAA. Dick Vitale, ESPN analyst and long-time NCAA hoops insider, tweeted on Saturday afternoon that he believes allegations are coming for two schools but didn’t give specifics. In the same tweet, he claims his source is “usually on the money” and that COVID-19 has been the hold-up for these allegations.

After the Zion Williamson reports came out, it makes you wonder if Duke will be one of these two teams. There’s also the question of the NCAA finally cracking down on both Sean Miller (Arizona) and Will Wade (LSU). With great pride, there haven’t been any rumblings involving Kentucky. While nothing is certain until the allegations are completely revealed, it’s hard to believe Dicky V would come out on Twitter with such a bold claim. Expect something significant soon, more specifically over the next six weeks.

Interesting how the narrative most-likely changes if it were any other player or program.
