  • The Knicks added height and bulk to their depleted frontcourt Tuesday by adding 6-foot-11 Jared Jeffries and 6-8 Derrick Brown.

    The moves came after the ‘Bockers cut ties with Kelenna Azubuike and Corey Brewer.

    Jeffries returns to New York after playing in 18 games for Houston, where he averaged 1.5 points and 1.9 rebounds over 7.7 minutes.

    The Bloomington, IN native originally signed with New York as a free agent on Aug. 8, 2006, appearing in 236 games (135 starts) with the Knicks, averaging 4.5 points on .434 shooting, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 22.9 minutes.

    Jerry Palm’s latest NCAA tournament bracket is up and his four No. 1 seeds are Ohio State, Kansas, BYU and Pitt.

    Palm still has 11 Big East teams in the Big Dance but says things can change here in the last two weeks of the season.

    “Nobody’s seed is locked in with two weeks to go,” Palm said Tuesday in a phone interview.

    “I think Marquette (17-11, 8-7 Big East) has work to do. I don’t know that Cincinnati (22-6, 9-6) would survive a three-game losing streak with their bad non-conference schedule.”

    In what should come as a surprise to no one, applications for the Monmouth men’s basketball job are pouring in.

    A source close to the athletic department said the school had already received 55 applications to serve as Dave Calloway’s successor.

    According to the source, among those in the mix are Christian Brothers Academy coach Geoff Billet (pictured); Davidson assistant Jimmy Fox; Dennis Wolff, the Director of Basketball Operations at Virginia Tech; Temple assistant Matt Langel; NJIT coach Jim Engles; Rutgers assistant Van Macon; and Notre Dame assistant Martin Ingelsby.
