Things we missed during the third week of February

  • Ed Davis either forgot to tell Roy Williams he was done with college basketball, or a Duke undergrad has played a damn good trick on the sophomore forward. A picture of Davis appeared on the website of PTA Sports Management, sending shockwaves through Chapel Hill. Vinnie Porter admitted that he has indeed spoken with Davis' family, but never directly with Ed.  Porter said the entire thing is part of a hoax and that he has "no clue what happened with the website."
  • No college basketball team will finish the season with a goose egg in the win column. Bryant University, newbies to the Northeast Conference and not eligible for post-season play until 2013, earned their first victory of the season Thursday night with a win over Wagner. The Bulldogs had lost their last 28 games, highlighted by a 48-point drubbing at Assembly Hall against Indiana back in December.
  • Oh, and just so you know, Evan Turner is now the frontrunner for the Naismith Player of the Year. AnnArbor.com's Michael Rothstein has been polling writers with a POY vote, and this week Turner overtook Kentucky's John Wall for first place.  Turner received 30 of the 49 first-place votes, while Wall collected 13. The current third-best player in the country, according to the voters: Villanova's Scottie Reynolds.
