"You know better," Sampson said sternly. "This isn't the time for that.

Villanova landed another recruit yesterday when 6-foot-1 point guard Scotty Reynolds made an oral commitment to play basketball with the Wildcats in the fall. The McDonald's all-American from Herndon High in Virginia had committed to Oklahoma, but he was released from that agreement when the school replaced coach Kelvin Sampson with Jeff Capel this spring. Sampson left to coach at Indiana. "They develop their guards and develop their players," said Reynolds, who held a news conference at his high school to announce his decision.

One by one, the recycled names that come up every year - the ones that this year the 76ers were whispered to be interested in as their next coach - have come off the board. Mike Malone, bolstered by the false impression created by media sycophants that he and not Mark Jackson was the brains behind the Golden State Warriors' playoff run, got the Sacramento gig. Mike Budenholzer, believed to have had pixie dust sprinkled upon him for having worked so long in San Antonio under Gregg Popovich, got the Atlanta job, where Danny Ferry hopes to use reams of cap space to build a super team in the worst professional sports city in the United States.

Indiana University will not request a second hearing in front of the NCAA infractions committee but will send a written response to the NCAA's newest allegation of failing to monitor the men's basketball program. University spokesman Larry MacIntyre confirmed the decision yesterday. He had no explanation for why it was made after university president Michael McRobbie promised to vigorously fight the charge in June. Indiana has until Sept. 17 to file a response. Former coach Kelvin Sampson and his staff were accused of making more than 100 impermissible phone calls, including about 10 three-way calls, while Sampson was still under NCAA restrictions because of another phone-call scandal at Oklahoma prior to joining the Hoosiers in 2006.

Kelvin Sampson's future at Indiana was in doubt following the release of an NCAA report that says he committed five "major" violations. According to the report released yesterday, the basketball coach and his assistants provided false and misleading information to university and NCAA officials. The allegations stem from a phone-call scandal that occurred while Sampson was still under recruiting restrictions following a similar episode at Oklahoma. The NCAA ruled in May 2006, less than 2 months after Sampson took the Indiana job, that the Sooners coaches made 577 illegal calls from 2000 to 2004.
