Arkansas just got a lot worse

LOS ANGELES -- Bad news out of Arkansas today.

Sources have told CBSSports.com that the school is expected to announce late Friday that Patrick Beverley will miss the 2008-09 season because of academic reasons, meaning the Hogs will be without six of the top seven scorers from last season's team that advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament. Beverley averaged 12.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game as a sophomore and is considered one of the better guards in the country. Now he's one of the better unavailable guards -- which isn't good for John Pelphrey, whose rebuilding situation will be tougher than previously expected.
