The case of Michigan big man Mitch McGary is one that has been debated in many circles on Friday, with a failed drug test during the NCAA tournament heavily influencing his decision to enter the 2014 NBA Draft. Per NCAA rules, which will change in August, testing positive means that the player will be suspended for an entire season and for many that punishment is excessive when considering the drug McGary tested positive for (marijuana).

Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix, hosting the “Dan Patrick Show” in place of Dan Patrick, offered up his thoughts on the situation.

Later in the show Mannix was joined by Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports, who addressed the question of why a player who didn’t even play was being tested by the NCAA.

LAS VEGAS (AP) UNLV junior guard Daquan Cook has been dismissed from the team.

Interim coach Todd Simon made the announcement on Friday, though no reason was given.

Cook was suspended for 13 games by previous coach Dave Rice in November after being arrested and charged with DUI.

Cook appeared in two games this season after being reinstated, scoring three points in four minutes. He missed the 2014-15 season after tearing his right ACL and played 28 games as a sophomore.

If you grew up during the 1980’s, get ready to feel old.

Seton Hall, which has won it’s last three games, hosts Georgetown Saturday on what is also “80’s Night.” Of course we’re at the point where athletes playing in these games were born after that decade passed, which makes quizzing them on the 80’s that much more entertaining.

Friday John Fanta of the Pirate Sports Network quizzed Isaiah Whitehead, Derrick Gordon, Khadeen Carrington and Ish Sanogo on their knowledge of 80’s hip hop, and outside of a couple correct guesses it did not go too well. Best part of the video: Whitehead asking “is this Run DMC?” after each song.

It’s just a matter of time until we’re old enough to watch college basketball players struggle to identify some of the songs of the 1990’s.
