      Oklahoma State forward had just begun to blossom before his death

      Not content to merely challenge himself against some of the nation’s top players his own age, Tyrek Coger sought a step up in competition. The high school junior goaded budding NBA star John Wall into a game of 1-on-1 at the 2012 Reebok Breakout Challenge in Philadelphia. In front of a few dozen onlookers, several of whom were filming with cell phone cameras, Coger showed no fear, promising to “show John how to play ball.” The 6-foot-8 forward actually knocked down a couple jumpers and even swatted away one of Wall’s shots before the Washington Wizards guard got serious, punctuating his victory by blowing by Coger off the dribble and drawing gasps with a ferocious left-handed dunk.

      Drake forced Kentucky into reporting another violation

      Kentucky was forced to report a Level III violation to the NCAA back in October due to “preferential treatment” that a player received, according to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Here’s what happened: a player, whose name was redacted in the report, was spotted by Drake or one of his entourage and was invited backstage at a concert. Drake did not provide the tickets and was not in touch with the player prior to the start of the show, but it is a violation nonetheless.
