Report: CAA officials ‘hope’, ‘expect’ Charleston to accept invite

Leave a comment

That news — Charleston officially making the jump from the SoCon to the CAA — comes from this report from Andy Katz, which is anything but a guarantee. I hope and expect every fantasy football trade that I propose to be accepted, and yet I’ve only actually made one deal all season long in all of my leagues combined.

On the other hand, this is the sentiment held by just about everyone that has followed the process closely despite the fact that we are only a day removed from Davidson resisting the overtures from the CAA.

Whatever the case, the news will become official on Saturday. At 9:30 a.m. EST, the Charleston decision-makers will all sit down and, well, make a decision. So until then, I guess we can chalk this up as educated optimism.

If Charleston does make the jump, they will become the 10th team in the conference. With Davidson turning down the offer, the CAA may end up making the decision to stay put at 10 teams.

VIDEO: Kentucky fans are going to love Malik Monk

Kentucky commit Malik Monk went bananas this weekend, scoring 46 points in a game on a series of crazy drives, ridiculous jumpers and one off-the-backboard dunk.

Monk is a bit streaky, but when he’s shooting well … I mean, just watch the video above.

Mamadou Ndiaye is one of the most unique players in college basketball.

Because he’s 7-foot-6.

Guys like that don’t come around often, and when they do, they do things like this: posterizing an opponent without having to jump.
