MICHIGAN: Michigan says sophomore guard Jordan Poole is staying in the NBA draft.

The school announced earlier this month that Poole, Charles Matthews and Iggy Brazdeikis were declaring for the draft, although they still had the option of coming back to the Wolverines. Since then, Matthews has announced that he would indeed be leaving school, and now Poole is departing as well.

DEPAUL: Former Kansas guard Charlie Moore is returning home to Chicago to play for DePaul.

Coach Dave Leitao announced the move, making DePaul Moore’s third school. He began his career at California and played one season at Kansas.

MIAMI: Former University of Florida forward Keith Stone is transferring to the University of Miami for his senior season.

The 6-foot-8 Stone, a South Florida native, expects to graduate this summer and will be eligible to play for the Hurricanes in 2019-20.


UCONN: Guard Mikayla Coombs will transfer out of the UConn women’s basketball program, the school announced, leaving the Huskies with just eight players on scholarship for the upcoming season.

Coombs, the third player from her recruiting class to transfer, arrived at UConn as a highly touted recruit (No. 13 in the country, according to ESPN) but never quite found her footing. After averaging 1.1 points a game as a freshman in 2017-18, she scored 0.9 per contest this past season in limited minutes.


RULES: The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel has adjusted the targeting rule in college football, allowing video review officials to overturn calls if any element of the penalty cannot be confirmed.

The adjustment to the rule means there will not be an option for letting the call on the field “stand” during a targeting review. It must either be confirmed or overturned.

The panel also approved instituting a progressive penalty for targeting. Players who commit three targeting fouls in the same season are subject to a one-game suspension.

Panel members also tweaked overtime rules. If a game reaches a fifth overtime, teams will run alternating 2-point plays instead of starting another drive at the opponent’s 25-yard line. The change was made to limit the number of plays from scrimmage and to bring the game to a conclusion.
