 Stanford's RM Madsen Punishes Opponents, With A Smile
LDS college basketball star Mark Madsen is the heart of the Stanford defense, helping hold opponents to 33 percent shooting, best in the nation. Madsen is gaining a name for himself as one of the most intense and physical players in the game.

  LDS Players on At Least 4 of Top 25 Basketball Teams
LDS college basketball players have made an impact on at least 4 of the AP top 25 schools, including two of the top 3 teams on both the AP and Coaches polls. Amazingly, and perhaps for the first time, neither of the teams in the top 3, Stanford and Duke, are in the Intermountain West or draw heavily from that area, nor are the LDS players on their teams, Mark "Mad Dog" Madsen and Matt Christensen from the Intermountain West.

 Chow leaves BYU for job at North Carolina State
Long-time BYU assistant coach and offensive coordinator Norm Chow has decided to leave the Cougars for the same position at North Carolina State University. Chow has been BYU's assistant head coach and offensive coordinator since 1985. "Norm has made an outstanding contribution to the success of our program over the years," said BYU coach LaVell Edwards. "Norm is an extremely bright, hard-working and innovative football coach. He will definitely be a tremendous asset to the North Carolina State."

In spite of violations to the Brigham Young University Honor Code, that forced 10 football players in the last three years to give up their place on the Cougar team, dozens of prep and junior-college players are proving that the pipeline of non-Mormons to BYU has not dried up. Talented African-American, non-Mormons are intent on joining the Cougars and living up to the tough standards of the BYU Honor Code.
