Delany: 'Not shocked' by FBI investigation of college hoops

NEW YORK (AP) — Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany says he wasn't shocked by the FBI investigation into college basketball because of the history of federal law enforcement intersecting with the sport.

At Big Ten media day on Thursday at Madison Square Garden, Delany said the conference has had no contact with the FBI about the investigation.

"We really don't have any facts other than what we've read," Delany said.

Louisville coach Padgett promotes staffer Evans to assistant

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville interim coach David Padgett has promoted R.J. Evans to acting assistant coach to "unofficially round out our staff."

The announcement of Evans' promotion Friday comes a day after Padgett introduced Greg Paulus as an assistant coach. Evans worked under Rick Pitino, who was fired earlier this week. Evans was given on-court responsibilities after assistants Kenny Johnson and Jordan Fair were placed on paid administrative leave.
