- Iowa head coach Frank Lickliter has been sidelined from the sidelines, after undergoing a procedure to repair a tear in his carotid artery. He missed all three of the Hawkeyes games this week (losses to Northern Iowa and Iowa State, and a win over Prairie View) but is expected to return to coaching December 19th against Drake.
- Bingamton head coach, Marc Macon, has been given a raise by the school. Macon, who starred for Temple in the late 80s, is technically the school's interm basketball coach as it seeks to rectify its image after all that drama that went down over the summer. The increase to Macon's $57,651 salary was not disclosed.
- St. Mary's lost its best defender this week, as Wayne Hunter is gone for the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee. Hunter, a redshirt senior, was also the team's third leading scorer and had started in the Gaels first seven games of the season.
