New CBA could keep kids in college longer

---Marc Spears writes that several high-ranking NBA team executives said they wouldn’t be surprised if the age limit in the new CBA is pushed to two years in college and 20 years old by the end of that calendar year. One NBA general manager says about two-thirds of teams are in favor of that change. The current CBA states that an American must be out of high school for at least one year and be 19 years old by the end of that calendar year before entering the draft.

Emphasis placed on the run

Gill
---UB's offense regressed every week through November last season, putting up a string of wretched statistics that could go for pages. The first answer was to bulk up the offensive line, which in turn would help spring the terribly inconsistent running game. It also meant tweaking Jeff Quinn's philosophy from the pass-happy spread to a a more balanced form of the offense.

Canisius promotes testicular cancer awareness

---April is testicular cancer awareness month. American Cancer Society data states about one in every 270 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer, a highly treatable condition when detected early. About 8,480 new cases were diagnosed in 2010, while there were roughly 350 associated deaths.

The Check Yo Nutz campaign began as a student project for a graduate communication course, but it became an effective campus cause now being handled by Canisius College undergrads. It has been introduced to several high schools in the Western New York area.

Among the notable testicular cancer survivors are champion bicyclist Lance Armstrong; ice skater Scott Hamilton; baseball players John Kruk, Mike Lowell and Scott Schoeneweis; Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel; and former New York Jets punter Louis Aguiar.
