Gueye committed to Valparaiso in July 2009 after making a connection to the coaching staff during an Athletes in Action tour in West Africa, according to news reports.

He entered Lake Land with plans to transfer to Valpo. The 265-pound Gueye averaged about 11 points and six rebounds last season at Lake Land, receiving freshman of the year honors in the Great Rivers Athletic Conference.

Then he broke his commitment to Valpo. Lake Land coach Cedric Brown said Gueye recently narrowed his list of schools to three: Texas, Southern California and Alabama. Butler, Indiana, Georgia, St. John's, Illinois and Missouri were interested as well, Brown said.

Stevens out to prove Butler belongs among the nation's elite programs--Sports Illustrated

Wouldn’t it be great if Butler’s Brad Stevens ultimately decided to stay in Indianapolis for the next thirty-odd years and built Butler into a national powerhouse who competed with the likes of Duke, Kentucky, UNC and Kansas for the top recruits and slots in the Final Four every year? To say Stevens will never leave Butler for another job at a high(er)-major is unlikely — after all, never is a long time for a 33-year old — but according to this article by Seth Davis, it certainly appears that the coaching wunderkind is awfully comfortable with his office in Hinkle Fieldhouse, and we’re rooting for him to be in the old barn for a very long time.

Dec. 4 – Butler vs. Duke in East Rutherford, N.J., 3:15 p.m.


Will Duke and Butler meet again in the title game?
o Yes
o No freakin' way

This would have been the top game on this list if Gordon Hayward had opted to return to school. While the Bulldogs likely won’t vie for the national title again, this game should be an intriguing rematch of last season’s championship game — especially with the improvement of guard Shelvin Mack.

2010-11 RTC Class Schedule: Purdue Boilermakers--Rush The Court

Non-Conference Schedule Rank (ranked 1 thru 10, 10 being the most difficult): 5. Unlike their rivals and primary Big Ten competition Michigan State, the Boilermakers opted to refrain from loading up their non-conference schedule, although there are three definite tests that lie ahead. Their stiffest challenge is the ACC/Big Ten matchup at Virginia Tech where they’ll have to handle Malcolm Delaney and a raucous Hokie faithful. A close second is a return trip to Morgantown smack dab in the middle of Big Ten play to face Kevin Jones and West Virginia. After winning down in Tuscaloosa last December, the Crimson Tide return with a visit to Purdue’s home floor, although few project Anthony Grant’s team to be NCAA-bound this March. The other intriguing matchup is part of the Chicago Invitational should Purdue beat Southern Illinois and Richmond down Wright State. Richmond features one of the toughest guards in the nation in reigning A-10 Player of the Year Kevin Anderson. The other true road game on the non-conference slate is Valparaiso, a middle-of-the-pack Horizon squad.
