- Kansas freshman Ben McLemore and Jamari Traylor were declared ineligible by the NCAA for the entire 2011-2012 season. You can imagine that Bill Self wasn't too happy with the NCAA's decision

- The National Hoops Report releases their 2011-2012 All-Senior Team

- Butler didn't have any Midnight Madness festivities this season. They didn't have one last year, or the year before. If it ain't broke don;t fix it, right?

- Now this, ladies and gentleman, is how you rip apart a rival school using words and text (Awesome-read)
