Charges against 7-foot-1 UConn center Enosch Wolf stemming from an incident in February have been dropped.
According to the police report, he entered the apartment of a girl that he was dating and “refused to leave the apartment when he was asked to and grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head. Wolf also knocked the glasses off of the victims face with his hand.”
Wolf entered a court-supervised domestic violence diversionary program and will remain in the program despite already having the charges dropped. Wolf also said that he is going to address any issues that he has with alcohol.
It’s unclear, however, whether or not this will be enough to get Wolf back onto the UConn team. From the Hartford Courant:
He was indefinitely suspended from the team following his arrest, but is still enrolled and studying at UConn. He now faces the university review process. After that, it will be decided by AD Warde Manuel and coach Kevin Ollie if he can return to the team for his senior season in 2013-14. Last week, Ollie said Wolf, 22, was “showing maturity” in going through the process, but the decision would not ultimately be his alone.

We talk about a lot of stuff of the podcast today, mainly because a lot of stuff happened since we last spoke with you all.
For starters, we need to discuss the ‘realness’ of Syracuse and Xavier. Are they both truly top 15 teams, or do they just have top 15 resumes? We also dive into Chris Mack’s epic troll-job of Dayton at the Advocare Invitational final.
Other topics we touched on: Whether or not Scott is ever going to apologize to Wayne Selden, Wichita State’s tournament hopes, Texas A&M and whether we’d take Ben Simmons, Kris Dunn or Denzel Valentine today.

The new college basketball AP Poll is out, and it shouldn’t be much of a surprise to you that Syracuse and Xavier are the big winners.
The Orange steamrolled through a good Battle 4 Atlantis field, while Xavier capped a dominating performance in the Advocare Invitational with a 29-point win over Dayton. It should be no surprise that they are where they are.
