Basketball:

Florida State basketball avenged their season-opening loss with a dominant win over the Pitt Panthers.

Ahead of FSU’s rematch with Pittsburgh, Craig Meyer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette put out a great article on Leonard Hamilton.

Bradham has been a mainstay on the Philly defense for the past 4 years, staying relatively healthy until this year when he missed 4 games due to injury. His release is more due to the money it frees up with Bradham scheduled to make $8 million next year. At just 30 years old, the former ’Nole shouldn’t have a problem landing with another squad should he decide to continue playing.
