PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Beating the dead horse Magloire

    An update on some rumored transfers...Cal will be keeping both Sean Lampley and Francisco Elson. The Lampley rumor was complete speculation with the Elson rumor holding more clout. However, Elson has reported that he also will be staying, saying "I plan to honor my commitment. I'm disappointed. There's nothing I can do about the (NCAA) decision." According to Elson's former coach at Kilgore Junior College Scott Schumacher, Elson was thrown for a loop after the NCAA decision because he was told by the Cal-Berkley athletic department that Cal would not be placed on probation... and Jamaal Magloire has backed away from his quote in a Toronto newspaper hinting he may transfer. Saying the original quote of "I have several options" was taken out of context, he said no decision to do anything other than continue at Kentucky has been made. His parents also recently said that he will be at Kentucky for four years. The kid loves playing with the media. His name will never be mentioned on this site again...

    Former Ohio State star Jerry Francis has been added to the Ball State coaching staff. Francis led the Big10 in free-throw percentage in 1989.

    It was announced on Thursday that Illinois standout Roderick Thompson will not be eligible to play for Galesburg HS this fall. Thompson transferred from Chicago Carver late last season because of safety and educational concerns. The IHSA has ruled that Thompson will not be allowed to play basketball, not buying the reasons given for the transfer. The ruling is expected to be appealed. Thompson has Purdue listed among schools he is considering.
