Missouri AD Mike Alden to step down after 17 years (Yahoo Sports)

Missouri athletic director Mike Alden is stepping down after a 17-year tenure marked by several high-profile coaching hires, significant facility upgrades and the school's 2012 move from the Big 12 Conference to the SEC. Alden plans to leave in August but will remain at Mizzou as an instructor in its College of Education and an administrator in a new global service-learning program. The Chicago-area native with roots on a family farm outside Columbia took charge of Missouri athletics in 1998 after working as Texas State's athletic director in San Marcos. In 2000, he hired Gary Pinkel, a little-known coach at Toledo.

College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock and ESPN acknowledged having discussions about a one-time schedule shift in separate statements to The Associated Press on Monday. ''We understand and appreciate their interest in this,'' Hancock said about ESPN.

Jeff Scurry, father of Eastern Kentucky sophomore offensive lineman Colton Scurry, told The Courier-Journal in Louisville that his son was injured in the fight.

No. 6 Arizona shuts down Oregon State in 57-34 win (Yahoo Sports)

When he wasn't doing that, Arizona's gritty point guard was deflecting passes, hounding every dribble and, of course, diving on the floor for loose balls any chance he had. With a leader like that, it's no wonder the Wildcats turned their rematch with Oregon State into a rout. Sparked by McConnell's career-high steals, No. 6 Arizona ran its smothering defense to near perfection in a 57-34 win over Oregon State on Friday night. ''You can make the argument that no player we've recruited in our seven or eight recruiting classes has had more of an impact on winning games than T.J.,'' Arizona coach Sean Miller said.

Top-ranked UK keeps rolling as Cauley-Stein goes missing (Yahoo Sports)

In this photo taken Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015, Kentucky's Willie Cauley-Stein, center, sits on the bench with a towel on his head during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against Missouri in Columbia, Mo. Cauley-Stein should be easy to find. Just look for the 7-footer with arms covered in tattoos and a decent outside shot. Lately, though, the national player of the year candidate has virtually disappeared.(AP Photo/L.G. Patterson)

Dress him up in a red-and-white striped shirt and a pair of bluejeans, give him some brown loafers and round specs, and it would still be easy to find Willie Cauley-Stein. Lately, though, the national player of the year candidate for top-ranked Kentucky has gone missing. In his last two games, including Thursday night's blowout of Missouri, the junior forward has taken two shots - making both - and scored a total of four points. Better question is, ''Where's Willie?'' Not even coach John Calipari is sure of the answer to that one.

The first meeting of Atlantic 10 rivals Richmond and VCU happens Saturday, and the Spiders will be heading across town trying to start evening things out a little bit in the series. The 14th-ranked Rams (17-3, 7-0) have won 11 of the last 13 matchups, including all three last season, the latter knocking Richmond out in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament. VCU is on a roll, too, having won 12 in a row overall, and can match its longest winning streak in Shaka Smart's six seasons as coach.
