Duke Reacts to Report on Handling of Sexual Assault Allegations — One day after a report suggested that Duke's athletic department knew of two sexual assault allegations against the junior guard Rasheed Sulaimon as many as 10 months before his dismissal from the team, the program's athletic director attempted to tamp down speculation that Coach Mike Krzyzewski, or any other athletic official, had mishandled the case.

Netanyahu's Analogies of Iran to Haman Miss the Mark — Given the beginning of the holiday tonight, you could have seen the Purim references coming-Orthodox Union's Nathan Diament did on Twitter-but something about Prime Minister Netanyahu's in his address Monday night made me uncomfortable. Here's what he said: This week, we will read how one woman changed Jewish history.

Jake Layman Is Powering Maryland’s Basketball Resurgence — COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Early on during Maryland's 59-53 upset of No. 5 Wisconsin on Tuesday night, Terrapins forward Jake Layman received the ball outside the left post and backed down his defender, Wisconsin's Sam Dekker. Layman then spun to his left and leapt, flying past not only Dekker but also Wisconsin's 7-foot center Frank Kaminsky and tossing the ball up for 2 points.

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice Addresses Rabbis at AIPAC — The United Nations is probably not the easiest sell at the AIPAC Conference, given the institution's long record of ganging up on the Jewish state in the General Assembly. The list of outrages might include Durban, the Goldstone Report, and untold dozens of smaller resolutions that would seem to h...

Maryland Puts an End to Wisconsin’s 10-Game Winning Streak — COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Early in Tuesday's matchup between Wisconsin and Maryland, Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes was fouled, and his first free throw was not even close: It collided with the back right of the rim before falling to the ground like a brick. Hayes stared at the basket, less upset than surprised.

Conferences Consider Restoring Freshman Ineligibility Rule — Several prominent conferences are considering making freshmen ineligible in men's basketball in order to discourage the so-called one-and-done phenomenon, in which the most talented players, who are prevented by N.B.A. rules from being drafted right out of high school, attend college for only one season.

Bo Ryan Is Weaned to Win in Wisconsin — PLATTEVILLE, Wis. - As one approaches this town of 11,000 in the southwest corner of Wisconsin, the largest letter M in the world looms to the north. Made of 400 tons of whitewashed limestone, measuring more than 200 feet in each direction and symbolizing the University of Wisconsin-Platteville's mining tradition, it is peaked on the kind of hill not ordinarily seen in the northern Midwest.

Smith’s Innovations Included an Early Zeal for Statistical Analysis — For decades, Coach Dean Smith would tell his players, both at halftime and after the game, how many points they had scored and had allowed per possession. In the 1960s, he began to task managers with keeping the statistic.

National Signing Day: The Day College Football Makes a Spectacle of Itself — On the fourth Thursday of November, Americans gather with their families to give thanks. On the last Monday of May, they remember those who gave their lives for their country. And on the first Wednesday of February, they scan Twitter to find out where several dozen talented 18-year-olds have decided to go play college football.

Syracuse Bars Its Men's Basketball Team From Postseason — Syracuse on Wednesday announced a self-imposed one-year postseason ban for its men's basketball team because of an ongoing N.C.A.A. investigation. The case stems from self-reported violations that involved the university's drug policy and that stretched back to the Orange's 2003 national championship.
