UOP and the NCAA are investigating academic fraud in the athletics department and alleged improper relations between former UOP assistant Joe Ford and a former female athlete.

One can only hope that no student-athletes have or will be negatively affected by this investigation that could lead to sanctions.....

I can see Ford taking the job at Idaho to get a way from the first allegations, but to then resign from Idaho so soon after the NCAA investigation started is rather telling, IMO.

The situation is getting uglier in Stockton.  Head Coach Verlin and an assistant coach have been suspended.

 Pacific will not compete in the postseason this season, including the West Coast Conference Tournament, and will reduce the number of basketball scholarships by a total of six over three years. Recruiting also will be limited.

Just like UP, UOP is/was expected to make some player moves this off-season, but it is surprising who the first two to leave are: Juniors Ray Bowles and Jacob Lampkin.

As I recall, shooting guard Bowles, from nearby Modesto, has already used a redshirt year so will probably graduate this year and be a grad transfer for his final year somewhere at a higher level than UOP.

But one-time highly regarded UP recruit, Lampkin, a 6-9/240 power forward, is a different story.  He was a solid part of UOP's front line until an ankle injury sidelined him for the latter part of the season, but with only one year left to play and a redshirt year in front of him if he were to stay in D1, one has to wonder if he was just so dissatisfied with the team mood in Stockton he decided to look for joy of the game elsewhere.

It was always a surprise to me that Lampkin and small forward Kaleb Warner, both UP recruits, left the PNW for Stockton.  Warner transfered to a JUCO after his freshman year and now plays at D2 Rockhurst of the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

The shocking thing is that USF has no transfers, so far. When's the last time that happened?

Not sure the year, but Bill Russell might have been there.

Bill Russell played at USF 1953-1956. He never transferred. I was thinking more about the Rex Walters tenure.

Good move, seniors Jacob Lampkin and D.J. Ursery are both transferring to D2 Alaska-Anchorage where they should have a lot more fun playing basketball.

I think that is now 5 non-seniors who have left the team this spring, but just like at UP, these changes were not unexpected.

I think they now have at least two, PF Chance Anderson and SG Marquill Smith.
