Sport College golf: NCAA men's conference championships, dates and results
Sean Miller's firing proves the only unacceptable thing in college basketball is losing
The impending NCAA punishment that could handcuff Arizona basketball in the immediate future? Well, that’ll get you fired. No Final Fours in 12 years. Exit stage left. Get run off the floor by No. 13 Buffalo when you have DeAndre Ayton? That’s going to linger. For a place as brazen as Arizona, the decision on Miller still proved a slow, tortured and controversial slog to arrive. It came 37 days after Arizona’s season ended, one that didn’t include the postseason because of a self-imposed ban.
Conference championship season is underway in men’s college golf, meaning the path to the NCAA Championship at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, has begun.

Coaches slam NCAA volleyball tournament setup, lack of locker rooms
The NCAA’s equity issue at the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, it seems, has spilled over into the NCAA Division I volleyball tournament. Wisconsin coach Kelly Sheffield and Nebraska coach John Cook complained on Thursday about the set up for the tournament next week at the CHI Health Center in Omaha, Nebraska. The two raised serious concerns about the venue for the first rounds of the tournament, the lack of locker rooms available to teams and the fact that the first rounds won’t be broadcasted. “I really hope they take a closer look at that.

Watch: Villanova pulled off incredible TD pass vs. Delaware
Wildcats quarterback Daniel Smith essentially flung the ball into the end zone as he was tumbling to the ground and managed to complete the touchdown. What?!? How?!? Look at this TD Pass from @NovaFootball as they cut it to a one-score game with 3 minutes remaining. pic.twitter.com/Jpc3aIkGRW — CAA Football (@CAAFootball) April 17, 2021 That’s Delaware defensive lineman Fintan Brose celebrating what he thought was his sack just as Smith is completing the touchdown pass. You can’t really blame him for doing so, either.Villanova is generally better known for its exploits on the basketball court.
