Jay Pivic, who is starting the Dakota County Technical basketball team next year, will be classified Division II, so they can give scholarships.

Cretin-Derham Hall’s Santrell Henderson has reportedly been suspended for the first game next season for Miami for undisclosed reasons — six players will sit out.

There is an outside chance that former Gopher Bryce Webster, with one year of college eligibility, could end up at the University of St. Thomas.
