CSN-Philly has a look at Taurean Prince’s NBA Stock for the 76ers:

How he'd fit with the 76ers

Brett Brown covets two-way players, and they are valuable when building a roster. The Sixers already are stacked in the frontcourt. Prince could play on the perimeter at the three spot. The team currently holds the 24th and 26th picks. With Prince’s draft stock rising, the Sixers most likely would have to trade up to select him.

NBA comparison

Prince likens himself to DeMarre Carroll and Jae Crowder. These players don’t need the ball on every possession to be effective and impact the game without having to be the center of the system.

Felix Obi placed 10th in the triple jump at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, as News Channel 25 in Waco says:

He finished 10th for a second-straight season, after missing out on the final by two inches in 2015. The 2014 NCAA Indoor triple jump champion does have one more outdoor season of eligibility remaining, after missing the 2014 outdoor season with an injury.

With all four of BU’s men’s entries missing the finals, it ends a streak of 38-straight years for the men’s team to score at the national outdoor meet (1978-2015).

Two Bears, Laura Lonardi and Blair Shankle, were named Big 12 scholar-athletes of the year in golf and tennis, respectively, per the Waco Tribune-Herald:

Lonardi earned her second straight conference scholar-athlete of the year award as she recorded a 3.96 grade point average in mathematics and statistics.

Shankle carries a 3.98 grade point average in accounting. The junior posted a 16-6 overall record in singles this season and finished 6-1 in Big 12 play in the No. 1 position.

Corey Coleman is doing well for the Browns, according to Terry Pluto of The Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Early reviews on Coleman are exciting, especially for a team that desperately needs receivers. When was the last time the Browns drafted a receiver with his ability? Their last first-round receiver was Braylon Edwards in 2005. He was a gifted athlete with excellent size at 6-3. Edwards caught 80 passes (16 TDs) in 2007 and made the Pro Bowl. But Edwards had lots of dropped passes. He last played in the NFL in 2012.

Coleman dropped 10 passes last season, an above average rate. His hands have been very good in camp.
