Men’s hoops links

NBADraft.net has changed its tune on Blake Griffin. The Web site was one of the few NBA Draft projection sites not tossing Griffin in with the 2008 draft class, instead listing him as the No. 1 prospect in the 2009 draft.
Not anymore. In their latest mock draft, updated Monday, the site has Griffin going No. 6 this year to the LA Clippers.
OU might be done, but there are a few Sooners (former ones, at least) still playing in the NCAA Tournament.
Scottie Reynolds’ situation is drawing a lot of attention. After signing with OU, he asked out of his letter of intent and ended up at Villanova.
By reading this story in the Wichita Eagle, it sounds like Reynolds wonders what they could’ve had at OU had he and Damion James stayed. That’s a fair curiosity, considering Villanova is a No. 12 seed and Oklahoma was a No. 6. Sure, Nova is still playing, but Oklahoma’s season would have been much different with a point guard of Reynolds’ caliber.
And here’s another story in which Reynolds looks back on his decision to leave OU.
James, like Reynolds a former Sooner signee, is still alive with No. 2 seed Texas, which plays tonight. And diminutive Drew Lavender is still playing with Xavier. The X-men pulled off a tough overtime win over West Virginia last night. Here’s a feature story on Lavender from earlier this week that’s a fun read.
