November 02, 2010

Duke's Kyle Singler was the leading vote-getter and only repeat selection for the Associated Press preseason men's basketball All-America team announced Monday, while North Carolina's Harrison Barnes became the first freshman to make the list since voting began in 1986.

Joining Singler (62 votes) and Barnes (17) on the team were Kansas State's Jacob Pullen (53), BYU's Jimmer Fredette (49) and Purdue's JaJuan Johnson (46).

•Michigan State guard Korie Lucious, who pleaded guilty in September to misdemeanor reckless driving, was suspended by coach Tom Izzo for next week's regular-season opener against Eastern Michigan as well as Tuesday night's preseason game with Saginaw Valley State.

•Iowa said the NCAA won't penalize the Hawkeyes for allowing two recruits to meet celebrity fans Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. The school said the NCAA ruled the actions by Iowa staffers as "secondary" in nature and both unintentional and accidental. Iowa also said the recruits have been fully cleared.
