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.

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)

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.
