  • Josh Selby will announce his college decision right here in the Big Apple during the Jordan Brand Classic April 17.

    The 6-2 senior point guard from Baltimore (Md.) Lake Clifton lists Kansas, Kentucky, Arizona and UConn as his final four, but Tennessee coaches Bruce Pearl and Steve Forbes recently went to watch him play.

    “At one time Josh was going to announce his decision when he finished his visits,” Selby’s mother, Maeshon Witherspoon, told “Now we are waiting ’til the Jordan Game, so we can see how all the teams play in the tournament. It has nothing to do with us being concerned with what Brandon [Knight] is doing.”

    Lance Brown and three of his Fordham teammates spent Monday morning asking athletic director Frank McLaughlin to make Jared Grasso the school’s full-time basketball coach.

    Brown, Chris Gaston, Alberto Estwick and Brenton Butler have put their full support behind Grasso, the school’s interim coach.

    “We’ve been responding well even though we haven’t been winning,” Brown, a 6-foot-3 freshman from Teaneck, N.J., said Tuesday morning by phone. “We’re comfortable with him and we’re responding well to him.”

    Fordham finished the season 2-26 overall, 0-18 in the Atlantic 10. Brown said McLaughlin and the University will likely decide on a new coach “in the next 2-3 weeks.”
