RALEIGH ó Former North Carolina State point guard Ryan Harrow says heís transferring to Kentucky.
Harrow announced his decision on Twitter, saying ěI am a Kentucky Wildcat!î
His departure from N.C. State last month was described as a mutual decision made by the guard and new coach Mark Gottfried, who was hired in April after Sidney Lowe stepped down.
Harrow averaged 9.3 points in 29 games as a freshman, ranking seventh in the ACC with an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.9. He will sit out this season and will have three years of eligibility starting in 2012-13.
He joins a Kentucky program that recently lost one-and-done freshmen John Wall and Brandon Knight to the NBA and brings in Marquis Teague, one of the nationís highest-rated high school point guards.
PAULUS
COLUMBUS, Ohio ó Former Duke guard Greg Paulus has been added to the Ohio State men’s basketball staff as video coordinator.
Paulus, who spent last year as an assistant coach at Navy, was a three-year starter for the Blue Devils and played on four NCAA tournament teams. While pursuing his master’s degree at Syracuse, he also played quarterback for a season for the Orangemen.
Buckeyes coach Thad Matta recruited Paulus out of high school in Kensington, Va.
Matta announced the hiring on Thursday.
RULES CHANGES
INDIANAPOLIS ó The NCAA has approved adding an arc three feet from the basket, inside which a defender cannot take a charge.
The organization said Thursday its Playing Rules Oversight Panel had approved several recommended rules changes for college basketball during a conference call Monday.
The women’s 3-point line will move back a foot to 20 feet, 9 inches next season, the same distance the men have used since 2008-09. In both the men’s and women’s games, the terminology for fouls will be changed to match the NBA. Intentional fouls will now be called Flagrant 1 and flagrant fouls will be called Flagrant 2.
PENN STATE SEARCH
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. ó Penn State is getting advice from former Vanderbilt and South Carolina coach Eddie Fogler on the search for Ed DeChellis’ replacement.
DeChellis resigned this week after eight seasons as Penn State’s coach to take the same job at Navy.
Team spokesman Brian Siegrist said Wednesday that Fogler was hired to assist athletic director Tim Curley. Fogler has also helped with past coaching searches at Georgia Tech and Auburn.
Curley said this week that DeChellis’ resignation caught him by surprise, coming two months after the Nittany Lions secured their first NCAA tournament bid in a decade. He also said there is no timetable for a hire.
