2013–14 NCAA Division I men's basketball season

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The 2013–14 NCAA Division I men's basketball season began in November with the 2K Sports Classic and ended with the Final Four in Arlington, Texas April 5–7. It was tipped off by the 2013 Champions Classic on November 12, 2013.

Season headlines[edit]

  • June 11 – The NCAA releases its annual Academic Progress Rate report. Three Division I men's basketball programs will be ineligible for postseason play in 2013–14; three others are ineligible pending appeals and NCAA review of data. The penalized programs are:[1]
  • November 4 – The Associated Press preseason All-America team is released. Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart was the only unanimous choice, gaining all 65 votes. He was joined by Doug McDermott of Creighton (63 votes), Louisville guard Russ Smith (52), Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins (42) and Michigan forward Mitch McGary (34).[2]
  • November 12 – Freshmen and transfers are eligible for the preseason Wooden Award watch list for the first time in the trophy's history. Nine freshmen made the 50-member list, including three each from Kentucky (Andrew Harrison, Julius Randle and James Young) and Kansas (Andrew Wiggins, Wayne Selden, Jr. and Joel Embiid). Jabari Parker of Duke, Aaron Gordon of Arizona and Noah Vonleh of Indiana were the other three freshmen named.[3]
  • February 27 – Shortly after the end of Utah Valley's 66–61 home win over New Mexico State in a battle between the WAC co-leaders, NMSU guard K.C. Ross-Miller throws a basketball at Utah Valley's Holton Hunsaker (son of UVU head coach Dick Hunsaker), hitting him in the leg.[4] The incident triggers a brawl between players and fans who had stormed the court,[4] with video later showing that at least one NMSU player threw a punch, and another had to be forcibly pulled from the melee by staff.[5] The next day, the WAC suspends two NMSU players—Ross-Miller for two games and Renaldo Dixon for one—for their involvement in the brawl.[5] In addition, UVU announces that it was reviewing tapes of the incident to determine whether to take further action against its own students and fans who were involved.[5]
  • March 26 – South Florida, which had reached an agreement in principle with Manhattan coach Steve Masiello to fill that school's head coaching vacancy, rescinds the agreement after it discovers that Masiello lied on his résumé about graduating from the University of Kentucky. A UK spokesperson confirmed that Masiello attended for four years but did not receive a degree.[6]
  • April 7 – Manhattan announces that it will retain Masiello as head coach, contingent on him earning his bachelor's degree from UK. At the time, he was about 10 credit hours short of a degree, and was expected to complete the needed courses during the summer term.[7] UK announced on May 29 that Masiello had completed the required coursework and would receive his degree in August.[8]
  • April 9 – UMass sophomore guard Derrick Gordon becomes the first active Division I men's college player to come out as gay.[9]

Milestones and records[edit]

Conference membership changes[edit]

The 2013–14 season saw the largest wave of membership changes resulting from a major realignment of NCAA Division I conferences. The cycle began in 2010 with the Big Ten and the then-Pac-10 publicly announcing their intentions to expand. The fallout from these conferences' moves later affected a majority of D-I conferences. The most significant developments this season were:

In addition, four schools began the transition up from Division II starting this season. These schools will be ineligible for NCAA-sponsored postseason play until completing their D-I transitions in 2017.

The 2013–14 season was also the last for several other teams in their current conferences:

New arenas[edit]

Major rule changes[edit]

  • Expanded the use of video review as follows:
    • Shot-clock violations and who caused the ball to go out-of-bounds in the final 2:00 of regulation or overtime.
    • Determine if a field goal is worth two points or three in the final 4:00 of regulation or in the entire overtime period. Any other such review must wait until the next media time-out (16:00, 12:00 and 8:00 as well as the final 4:00 of the first half).
  • Change the block/charge rule to not permit a defender from sliding in front of an offensive player at the last second to draw a charge. The defender must be in position when the offensive player begins his upward flight with the ball.
  • Increasing emphasis on hand-checking or extended arms on defense.
  • Permit the use of video review to determine if an elbow delivered above the shoulders of an opponent warrants a flagrant-1 or -2 foul (as was previously the case), a player control foul, or no call.

Tulsa Danny Manning Frank Haith Manning left for the Wake Forest job.[145]
UNC Wilmington Buzz Peterson Kevin Keatts Peterson was fired at the end of his fourth season after posting a 42–82 record, ending with a last-place CAA finish this season.[146] UNCW hired Louisville assistant Keatts.[147]
Virginia Tech James Johnson Buzz Williams After a 9–22 season, Johnson was fired at the end of his second season as head coach. Johnson was unable to keep two key players in the program—Dorian Finney-Smith transferred to Florida immediately after Johnson was elevated from assistant, and Montrezl Harrell, who had originally committed to Tech, instead went to Louisville.[148]
Wake Forest Jeff Bzdelik Danny Manning Bzdelik resigned after four seasons with records of 51–76 overall and 17–51 in ACC play. Like Ben Braun at Rice and Bennie Seltzer at Samford, Bzdelik was plagued by player transfers, with eight players transferring out during his tenure. Students responded by "rolling" trees in the campus quad with toilet paper, a Wake Forest tradition after big wins.[149]
Washington State Ken Bone Ernie Kent After five years and an 80–86 record, Bone was fired with two years left on his contract; Washington State will pay him the remaining balance of his contract. Bone's final season saw the Cougars go 10–21 overall and 3–15 in the Pac-12 .[150]
