(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) Under construction: The finishing touches on the $60 million-plus in renovations of Villanova's on-campus home and the national champions that will call it home.

NC State looks to transfers for help

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Devon Daniels, C.J. Bryce and Blake Harris spent the better part of last season leading North Carolina State's practice team and working on their games - along with their ability to stay patient - while sitting out as transfers.
