Is it simply a title hangover, or do the Warriors have more serious issues?
pic.twitter.com/5DywwIOC3Q — Dan Devine (@YourManDevine) November 4, 2022With Golden State holding a nine-point lead Thursday night, Stephen Curry dribbled the ball across the timeline against Franz Wagner. He looked for a screen from James Wiseman … and he kept looking, as the 7-foot-1 center Golden State selected with the No. As Steph goes to corral it, Wiseman gets demonstrative, too, shaking his head in apparent frustration — possibly over a misfire in the execution of the play call . Golden State still held the lead — though, unbeknownst to the Dubs, Orlando had just begun what would become a game-changing 38-14 run. You don't lose a title nine games into the season, but it can get late awfully early in the West.wftv.com

NCAA steering farther and farther away from harsh penalties
The days of postseason bans and crippling scholarship reductions to punish schools for breaking NCAA rules appear to be winding down. The Independent Accountability Review Panel, the NCAA's outside arm of enforcement, said in its decision in the Memphis case that it did not want to punish current athletes. The Memphis case went through the IARP, which was created in response to the FBI's investigation of college basketball corruption but is now being discontinued. Those have been in the NCAA enforcement pipeline for years. In the Memphis case, Wiseman received $11,500 from Hardaway in 2017 while Hardaway was coach at a local high school.wftv.com
NCAA puts Memphis on 3 years' probation, no tourney ban
The IARP ruled that Memphis failed to monitor Hardaway as an athletics booster, provided impermissible benefits and other benefits to recruits. The panel also ruled Memphis failed to cooperate with the investigation by delaying handing over requested documents but decided these were Level II and III violations. He wasn't hired as Memphis' coach until March 2018, and Wiseman committed to the Tigers in November 2018. Wiseman played the first game of the 2019-20 season before the NCAA ruled Wiseman ineligible. The IARP also wants Memphis to vacate all wins and records of the three games Wiseman played with those reflected in Hardaway’s career records.wftv.com
