No KU news that I could find today. Well... I guess Brandon Rush played two minutes last night. Otherwise, CBSSports' Dennis Dodd has been covering the Big 12 spring meetings, so we'll hit that hard today.

The Big 12 reversed course on a ruling that would have prevented Baker Mayfield from playing for Oklahoma in 2017.
From revenue distribution to expansion and television contracts, there is a lot on the table for the Big 12 to discuss as its spring meetings come to an end.
Bowlsby said no specific schools were discussed in about 90 minutes of talk Wednesday about conference composition and TV future - but when they get around to weighing the merits of the dreamers, here's a quick guide to each.

Golden State didn't get much from the Splash Brothers, but it really didn't matter. In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, it was Golden State’s depth, led by superior performances from Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Leandro Barbosa that powered the Warriors to a 104-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Padres led the game 12-2 in the sixth inning. Then the Mariners scored five runs in the sixth. Then an eye-popping nine runs in the seventh. Now, all of a sudden, the Padres were losing 16-12.
(Mr. Ed says: I wonder what the win percentage was for Padres with a 12-2 lead...)
