Arizona parts ways with Sean Miller after 12 seasons as men’s basketball coach

Arizona is parting with men's basketball coach Sean Miller after his 12 seasons at the school, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to USA TODAY Sports.

The person requested anonymity because of not being able to speak publicly about the matter.

Miller led the Wildcats to the NCAA Tournament in seven of his first nine seasons at the school, including three appearances in the Elite Eight.

However, Arizona was implicated in an FBI investigation into recruiting corruption in college basketball that became public in 2017. Assistant coach Emmanuel Richardson served three months in federal prison for his role in the case.

NBA roundtable: Are the Knicks and their ‘Big 15’ preparing to join the Eastern Conference elite?

Too much has been made of the Nets' Big 3 of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. Not enough is being made of the Knicks' Big 15. So says Julius Randle.

Before their game against the Nets earlier this week, Knicks forward Reggie Bullock dismissed Brooklyn’s Big 3 by saying, “We got a Big Five.” He was quickly corrected by Randle, who said, “A Big 15.”

Indeed, these are some heady times for a Knicks franchise that has advanced to the playoffs only five times in the past 20 years. The Knicks are experiencing their most successful season in nearly a decade, with the chance to make it back to the playoffs for the first time since 2013.

That begs the question, have the Knicks turned the corner?

That’s just one of many questions we have about the NBA. What MVP frontrunner Nikola Jokic leading the way, can the Nuggets break through to the Finals? Is Jokic the surefire MVP? And should the Warriors plan a full-scale rebuild?

6 men charged in sex abuse probe at New Hampshire’s state-run youth detention center

CONCORD, N.H. – Six men were arrested Wednesday in connection with sexual abuse allegations at New Hampshire’s state-run youth detention center, the state attorney general’s office said.

The Sununu Youth Services Center, formerly known as the Youth Development Center, has been the focus of a broad criminal investigation since July 2019.

Two former counselors at the Manchester facility were charged with 82 counts of rape at that time, but the charges were dismissed last year in order to strengthen the wider investigation. Both of them were arrested again Wednesday and charged with rape.

Three others also were charged with rape, while the sixth was charged with being an accomplice to sexual assault.

The allegations span from 1994 to 2005.

Meanwhile, more than 200 men and women have joined a civil lawsuit in the last year alleging they were physically or sexually abused as children by 150 staffers from 1963 to 2018.
