Got game in seventh grade?

OXON HILL, Md. â€" Giving in to the young-and-younger movement in college basketball recruiting, the NCAA has decreed that seventh-graders are now officially classified as prospects. The organization voted this week to change the definition of a prospect from ninth grade to seventh grade â€" for men's basketball only â€" to nip a trend in which some college coaches were working at private, elite camps and clinics for seventh- and eighth-graders. The NCAA couldn't regulate those camps because those youngsters fell below the current cutoff.

You have to figure it will be close. The last four Clemson-Wake Forest basketball games have been decided by two points or less, or in overtime. No. 2 Wake Forest is 15-0 and 2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference coming into today's game at 10th-ranked Clemson, also undefeated at 16-0 and 2-0. So every bit of improvement Trevor Booker has made between his sophomore and junior seasons will come in handy today for the Tigers.

All the kids know Stephen Curry, of course. And semi-serious hoop fans in these parts are aware of the Southern Conference's other top guards, players like College of Charleston's Andrew Goudelock, The Citadel's Cameron Wells and Chattanooga's Stephen McDowell.
