Wednesday Morning Dump

- Today's must read comes from Seth Davis, who had a chance to catch up with a number of coaches.

- A fantastic read from CAA Hoops. Seriously, read it.

- KSR was once again in the courtroom for the Karen Sypher trial, and once again Matt Jones put together a fantastic recap of the day's events. Things went well for the defense yesterday, as a couple government witnesses were crucified on stand. It gets really juicy today as Rick Pitino will likely be testifying.

- USA Today catches up with Arthur Agee, one of the kids from the movie 'Hoop Dreams'.

- North Carolina recruit PJ Hairston is a gunner, which is a good thing when you are 6'6" and have a smooth jumper. He also has some hops...

- The Pac-10 is making some changes. They will become the Pac-12 once Colorado and Utah become a part of the conference (here's to hoping the name is officially changed to the 12-Pac. That would be awesome). They also unveiled a brand new website, which clearly needs some work done. The conference has also changed their logo:

- We posted our take on Kevin Coble last night. Here is John Gasaway's, which as you might imagine, is spot on.

- Ray McCallum and Troy Zeigler, the two five-star recruits that decided to play mid-major basketball for their fathers', will face off on December 18th this year.

- Jeff Goodman says that Gary Williams got a new lease on life when the former Maryland AD left.

- The WAC is changing their conference tournament format. Instead of having a regular tournament break down -- 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, etc. -- the top two seeds will receive automatic byes into the semifinals and the third and fourth seeds will receive a first round bye. It is the same format as the WCC. Its interesting to see other conferences adopt a double-bye for their conference tournament when the Big East decided to get rid of it this very same summer.

- Big XII Hoops tells us which coach got the most money per win in the conference.

- Hofstra player may be done for the year.
