Vols' Barnes: 'No legs' to Texas academic misconduct report

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Rick Barnes says he doesn't have reason to be concerned about a Texas investigation into allegations of academic misconduct in its men's basketball program.

Texas hired an outside investigator following a Chronicle of Higher Education report that mentioned potential allegations involving three former men's basketball players dating back to 2006. Barnes had coached Texas the last 17 seasons before getting fired in March.

ISU adds in-state PF Brady Ernst

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Prep forward Brady Ernst says he'll play for Iowa State next season.

Ernst, who is 6-foot-9 and 215 pounds, is the first recruit for new coach Steve Prohm. He is from Clinton, Iowa.

Ernst adds depth to the Cyclones front court, which is talented but thin beyond Georges Niang, Jameel McKay and Abdel Nader.

Ernst tore the ACL in his right knee in late February. But Ernst tells The Associated Press that he'll be able to resume basketball activities by late August at the earliest.
