For the first time since before the coronavirus shut down conference tournaments and March Madness earlier this year, college basketball had a great weekend.

With the revised Aug. 3 NBA draft withdrawal deadline bearing down on the select group of players who had declared back in the spring but were still weighing their options, hoops fans across the country waited to get long-sought answers to lingering major roster questions.
