HIGHLIGHTS IN HISTORY

Southeastern Conference considers changing men’s basketball format

compiled from staff and wire reports

The SEC is considering several options for its men’s basketball format.

The league is looking at possibly getting rid of its divisions an putting all 12 teams together for the regular season. It might also keep the divisions and seed the teams number 1 through 12 for the postseason tournament.

Conference commissioner Mike Slive says the options will be discussed during the league’s annual spring meetings this week.

Several presidents, coaches and athletic directors questioned the SEC’s current format last season. The Eastern Division dominated the West in 2010, going a combined 9-27 against the West in the regular season, and placed three teams in the semifinals of the conference tournament. Five of those regular-season wins came against one of the worst teams, Georgia.

Byron Nelson Championship leaders: Beckman, Adams

compiled from staff and wire reports

The 2010 Byron Nelson Championship is a little different than in years past. This tournament is lacking the big names but it has a 16-year-old who made the cut; a 34-year-old rookie and the only recognizable golfer this week has been 47-year-old Steve Elkington.

16-year-old Jordan Spieth took time off from being a junior in high school to make his PGA Tour debut, becoming the first high school golfer to take on the pros in Irving, Texas since Tiger Woods in 1993. Woods didn’t make the cut in those days, but Spieth did it with ease on Friday, becoming the sixth youngest player to do so at a Tour event

47-year-old Steve Elkington got into the field as an alternate, when another golfer dropped out. He then shot a 66 to become part of a seven-way tie for the lead. He folloews with another 66, putting him two shots behind the lead.

Elkington first played the Byron Nelson back in 1987. He was once a star on Tour, winning 10 PGA events in the 1990′s, including a major. He hasn’t won since 1999, and hasn’t finished better than 54th on the money list, instead finishing in the 100′s.

34-year-old Blake Adams is a rookie who spent the last three years on the Nationwide Tour who has a career story worth listening, no matter how sad it is about perseverance. He was a part of that cluster at the top after the first round, then put up six birdies on his way to a 64 and a 10-under 130 and a share of the second-round lead.

Adams is from Georgia. He has had bad rotator cuffs and broken bones that have slowed his career. He has had a bulging disk in his back, bone spurs, a cyst and a hip that needs to be replaced.

Cameron Beckman and Jason Day are somewhat recognizable names.

Beckman won a PGA tour event for the first time a few months ago, but that was against a weak field and he has struggled every week since. He started Friday down around the cutline, but walked off the course with the lead.

Beckman finished his delayed opening round with a pair of birdies that turned a 1-over into a 1-under 69, then shot a 61, tying the TPC Four Seasons course record setting a personal best. He’s tied for first with Adams; Day is a stroke behind and Spieth is tied for 22nd, 3-under 137. Not bad for a teenager in a major golf tournament.

Day is a 22-year-old Australian who has been set back due to illnessess.

The 2010 winner of the Byron Nelson will not be a household name but will definitely have a unique story to tell.
