AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas center Sedona Prince, one of the nation's top recruits, says she is transferring after sitting out last season with a leg injury. The 6-foot-7 Prince was a high school all-American and key player in a Texas 2017 recruiting class that was ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation. But she broke her leg while playing for the under-18 US national team at the Women's Americas Championship in Mexico City and never played for the Longhorns.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Safety Derrek Pitts is looking to transfer from West Virginia following a similar move by All-Big 12 safety Kenny Robinson. West Virginia football spokesman confirms that Pitts has joined Robinson in putting put his name into the NCAA's transfer database. Pitts started two games last season and finished with 27 tackles, an interception and four pass breakups. The departures of Pitts and Robinson would leave the Mountaineers especially thin at safety.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The 3-point line is moving back in men's college basketball. The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel announced the arc will be moved to 22 feet, 1 ¾ inches for the 2019-20 season, matching the international distance. The change will not go into effect in Division II and III until 2020-21 due to the potential financial impact on schools. The 3-point line was last moved in 2008-09, extending a foot to 20 feet, 9 inches. The women's line will stay the same.
