Iowa State guard Naz Mitrou-Long has been granted a hardship waiver by the Big 12, making him eligible to play as expected in 2016-17. Mitrou-Long, who averaged 12 points a game in 2015-16, ended his season at the eight-game point so he’d be eligible for the hardship waiver. Mitrou-Long’s return will bolster one of the nation’s deepest backcourts.

The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association says it won’t move its headquarters, its basketball tournament or other conference championships from North Carolina, despite the state’s controversial new LGBT law.

The Charlotte Observer (http://bit.ly/1NZnZ9s ) reports that the CIAA, the oldest African-American sports conference in the U.S., has hosted its annual basketball tournament in Charlotte since 2006 and announced it was moving its headquarters to Charlotte from Virginia in 2015.
