1/26 - Some Links, Some News

-Just a couple notes: Kentucky's Ramon Harris has been cleared to return to the practice court after fainting outside of the locker room during halftime of the Wildcat's game at Alabama on Saturday. He was taken to the hospital and released that night. It wasn't the first time Harris had to be taken to the hospital this season. He missed a couple of games after injuring his neck in a collision with teammate Michael Porter in a game vs. Lamar.

-Houston's Aubrey Coleman will be suspended for one game by Conference USA for stepping on the face of Chase Budinger after committing a charge at half court in a game in Arizona on Saturday. In case you haven't seen it, here's the video.

-Syracuse freshman forward Mookie Jones is done for the year with a hip injury. Not a huge loss for the Orange, as Jones as not played too much this season.

-We have a Derrick Caracter sighting! The big man, who was all but kicked out of the Louisville program for repeated offenses, is now enrolled at UTEP. He's taking classes, paying his own way, and should be ready to suit up in December of next season.

-UConn recruit Ater Majok was deemed a partial qualifier by the NCAA, which means that he will be allowed to practice with the team, but cannot suit up until next season.
