More female players graduate than male players; retroactive punishment

Women’s NCAA teams graduate at higher levels than the men’s teams, a study says. Not surprising.

Oklahoma State’s Andrea Riley will miss her team’s NCAA opening round game this weekend as part of a punishment for an offense committed two years ago. Riley was supposed to miss an NCAA Tournament game for taking a swipe at an LSU player in 2008, but her team didn’t make the tourney last year. Pretty weird, huh?
