Louisiana Tech hires Ole Miss assistant

Louisiana Tech, as expected, hired Ole Miss assistant Michael White to be its next men's basketball coach on Tuesday, a source told CBSSports.com.

A formal announcement is expected soon.

White is a New Orleans native who played at Ole Miss and has spent the past seven years as an assistant in the program -- first for Rod Barnes, then for Andy Kennedy. White replaces Kerry Rupp, who was fired earlier this month after four seasons that featured a 20-44 record in the WAC.

Are Vols about to take control of SEC East?

There are two SEC basketball games scheduled for tonight.

They are:
  • Kentucky at Ole Miss
  • Vanderbilt at Florida
Kentucky and Florida are the favorites in those matchups, meaning both should win. But if Ole Miss and Vandy pull off upsets, every SEC East team except Tennessee will have at least three league losses. Either way, the Vols are 4-2 in the SEC with two winnable games (at Auburn on Thursday/vs. Alabama on Saturday) scheduled this week. That means they should be 6-2 in the league after the weekend. And because Kentucky and Florida play each other late Saturday, the Vols will likely be either tied for first in the loss column in the SEC East with one other school (Florida or Kentucky) or all alone in first place of the SEC East when Bruce Pearl makes his permanent return to the sidelines next Tuesday for a nationally televised game with Kentucky at Rupp Arena.

Who would've guessed that after the Vols started 0-2 in the league?

Kendrick transferring from Memphis to Ole Miss

Former McDonald's All-American Jelan Kendrick is transferring from Memphis to Ole Miss, a source close to the situation told CBSSports.com on Thursday.

An official announcement is expected shortly.

Kendrick will enroll in cla in Oxford next month.

Kendrick was one of the prizes of Josh Pastner's recruiting class but struggled at Memphis almost from the moment he enrolled. He fought a teammate in June and seriously threatened another during preseason workouts. He was suspended, then reinstated and essentially dismissed from the program without ever playing in a regular season game. The 6-foot-6 wing also considered Georgia Tech and West Virginia. He'll be eligible at Ole Miss next December.

Madden changes course again, will sign Friday

Rashad "Ky" Madden has changed his mind again.

This time it's good for Arkansas.

"I talked to my dad and told [the Arkansas staff] that I'm going to sign on Friday," Madden told ESPN.com recruiting analyst Dave Telep late Tuesday, this after telling the Arkansas Democrat Gazette hours earlier that he would not sign with Arkansas in the early period that starts Wednesday. It's the latest twist in a recruitment that's had many, among them Madden's initial commitment to Arkansas that came in September even though he, according to multiple sources, was telling staffs up until the morning of his press conference that he planned to play at Ole Miss.

Madden signing Friday means Arkansas' five-player class is in tact.

Four of the prospects are consensus top 100 recruits in the Class of 2011.

Arkansas recruit opts not to sign early

Rashad 'Ky' Madden will not sign with Arkansas this week despite being committed to the Razorbacks, according to a report by Richard Davenport in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

Madden, a 6-foot-5 wing and consensus top 50 prospect in the Class of 2011, told Davenport he remains committed to the Hogs, but that he's concerned with the number of guards projected to be a part of the Arkansas program next season, and that he won't sign with any school until the late period. It's an interesting development due to the fact that Madden's commitment was deemed strange when it happened in late September, mostly because he was, according to multiple sources, telling people up until minutes before his press conference that he planned to sign with Ole Miss over other finalists Arkansas and Baylor.

Arkansas still has three prospects expected to sign this week.

They are B.J. Young, Hunter Mickelson, Aaron Ross and DeVonta Abron.

Young, Mickelson and Ross are all considered to be top 100 national prospects.
