Friday Morning Dump

- This story makes me a huge fan of Tom Crean.

- Luke Winn continues his fantastic series of breaking down the best players by position of the efficiency era. You'll be surprised by No. 3 and No. 4.

- Corey Schmidt has been doing some heavy-lifting over at Basketball Prospectus this summer. His most recent analytical piece deals with the lack of APR scores by HSBCs. (Something we pointed out when the APR came out... But seriously, Schmidt has been killing it with the original analytical content. His stuff is must-read status)

- If expansionocalypse does indeed happen, and this is what the Big East/South/Midwest might look like. Joe Lunardi explains why conference expansion could possibly destroy the NCAA tournament.

- We are not going to write anything about conference realignment until something is official. But I will link Mike DeCourcy's article that says Baylor -- and the rest of the Big 12 -- has a case if they decide to sue.

- Florida's Erik Murphy has been reinstated by the Gators basketball program four months after he was arrested for attempted car theft

- Just nine months after tearing his acl, Abdul Gaddy is not only cleared to play basketball, he is well on his way to making 18,000 jumpers before the start of the season.

- Interesting read on Mitch McGary's recruitment to Michigan

- Shaq has a statue at LSU now

- The official twitter account of Seton Hall athletics retweeted something that Kyle Anderson, a top five recruit in the country, tweeted about his visit to Seton Hall. You get all that? Well, it was a minor -- really minor -- violation.

- More Draft Express prospect profiles, this time breaking down top ten prospects in the Big Ten.

- Shocker Hoops has your updated Wichita State schedule

- The Dagger has some quality A-10 non-conference games for your perusal.

- The man that shot former Memphis guard Antonio Burks is heading to jail for 97 years.

This is Jabari Bird. He can jump high:
