  NCAA1 - Freshman center Omari Spellman was ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA  - by Rick Ross - 11 hours ago

Courtesy of cbssports.com
The NCAA has ruled five-star freshman Omari Spellman academically ineligible to play for Villanova this season.
"We are extremely disappointed for Omari," said Villanova coach Jay Wright. "While we don't agree with the NCAA's decision, we are members of the association and respect it. We understand why the NCAA felt it had to rule this way. We will make a positive out of this for Omari. He will concentrate on his academics and individual development this season. In the long run, Omari will be a better student and player for this experience."
Spellman is a 6-foot-9 center who was ranked 19th in the Class of 2016, according to 247 Sports. He was expected to help the reigning national champs overcome the loss of Daniel Ochefu, who averaged 10.0 points and 7.5 rebounds as a senior.
Villanova announced Spellman will remain on scholarship and in school.
He's expected to be available for the 2017-18 season.
THREE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT OMARI SPELLMAN'S INELIGIBILITY
1. This definitely does affect Villanova's title hopes
SPONSORED BY STAPLES
See How One Woman Turned Her Idea into a Successful Business
With a creative idea this young woman turned the wedding industry on its head. See her story and get tips on starting a successful small business.
There's no guarantee Spellman was going to be great or even good as a freshman. But he is a big-bodied five-star recruit who was expected to play major minutes and possibly start. Will this development cost Villanova a chance to repeat as Big East and national champions? Not necessarily, no. But it does subtract from the Wildcats' size and depth, and it makes staying healthy around the rim extremely important.
2. It's time for Darryl Reynolds to elevate his game
Reynolds averaged 3.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in 17.1 minutes per game last season while backing up Ochefu, and Villanova now needs him to improve on that. The 6-8 forward did have a 19-point, 10-rebound effort against Providence when Ochefu was sidelined last February; so Reynolds is clearly capable. But consistency is the key. Reynolds needs to be consistently strong, at least on the boards, for Villanova to be great again.
3. Nobody should make high school this complicated
The issue here is that the NCAA doesn't believe Spellman graduated on time with his high school class, mostly because he was once reclassified in the process of attending four different institutions before enrolling at Villanova. And I have but one question: why? I don't know even one normal person who has ever attended four different high schools, and yet basketball prospects do it on the regular. It's always unnecessary and often harmful. And it's something the adults in these young prospects' lives would be wise to help them avoid.

  NCAA1 - Chicago Butler prep standout Marvin Nesbitt commits to UMKC  - by Eurobasket News - 11 hours ago

Class of 2017 Chicago Butler Prep (IL) standout Marvin Nesbitt has committed to play his college basketball for head coach Kareem Richardson and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Nesbitt, a 6'4 wing, saw his recruiting stock soar this past spring and summer on the travel team circuit with the Chicago Demons. Nesbitt is a big-time athlete with an improved jumper who still has his best basketball in front of him. Nesbitt, who officially visited UMKC earlier this month, ultimately picked the school over offers from Chicago State, Minnesota State, Central Missouri and Lewis.

It is actually his comeback to Vrsac as he has played here before. Pavkovic played last season at Lietkabelis in Lithuanian LKL league. In 28 games he recorded 7.1ppg, 1.9rpg and 4.2apg.

The previous (14-15) season he played at Rabotnicki in Prva Liga. In 26 games he had 9.5ppg, 2.3rpg, 5.4apg and 1.4spg.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Pavkovic's team won Macedonian Cup in 2015. He was also voted Eurobasket.com All-Serbian League Domestic Player of the Year back in 2011.
Pavkovic is quite experienced player. He has played also professionally in Bosnia (Igokea), Montenegro (Buducnost), Romania (Steaua CSM EximBank Bucuresti), Serbia (Zdravlje, Vojvodina Srbijagas and Radnicki 1950 Kragujevac) and Czech Republic (CEZ Nymburk).
It's very possible he may end his playing career at Vrsac.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Great pointguard, small but plays without any problem. One of the best assists in YU, very good shot for 3 points. Quick, smart, real coach on the floor.

The scouts decsribe him following way: (by Jorrye Nixon for NBADraft.net in 2011)
Runs the floor well and shows good reactive leaping skills that help him some on the glass and blocking shotsDisplays a developing post game that is pretty solid right nowHas a very soft touch and is still adding moves to his repertoireHas a right-handed jump hook that is very effective, and with his length looks to translate seamlesslyNever seems to rush into his moves. Can be pushed out of the post by more physical bigs, and sometimes struggles to establish position consistently against strength Will need to get much stronger in his lower body Doesn't play very tough, physical ... His motor is also very improvable
