Xavier landed a commitment Saturday from highly regarded Belmont transfer Adam Kunkel, giving the Musketeers a key addition at the shooting guard position that should help the team address its recent outside shooting struggles. Kunkel chose Xavier over Arkansas, Oklahoma and Creighton.

He will sit out the upcoming season but has two seasons worth of eligibility remaining.

Kunkel and Xavier are a great fit, with his biggest strength — outside shooting — meshing perfectly with one of Xavier’s biggest weaknesses. Last season, Travis Steele’s team ranked 286th nationally in 3-point shooting, and the year before, it ranked 235th. As a team, Xavier ranked last among all Big East teams in 3-point shooting during conference play.

“We were offensively challenged,” Steele told CBB Review earlier this summer while recapping the 2019-20 season. “I thought we were really good defensively. Offensively, we could not shoot the ball and

The coronavirus pandemic has been a watershed moment for telehealth — or the use of mobile technology to deliver health-related services, such as remote doctor consultations and patient monitoring — as patients have had to reimagine the ways they seek healthcare.

While telehealth has been on the brink of taking off for years, consumer usage of the tech ticked up slowly before 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has given consumers the push they need to adopt telemedicine on a wide scale — and we expect adoption to keep climbing so long as the pandemic rages on. Once outbreaks became severe in the US, consumers began flocking to telehealth: Telehealth usage among US adults climbed 6 percentage points month-over-month from February 2020 — when 11% of respondents reported having tried telehealth — to March — when 17% said the same, per a survey by CivicScience. And we

Dribble handoff: Who will be college basketball’s player of the year in the 2020-21 season?

Watch Now:
College Basketball 2020-21 Season Outlook Amid COVID-19 Concerns
(5:45)

College basketball has seen plenty of repeat champions recently with North Carolina, Duke, Villanova, and UConn each winning two of the last 11 NCAA Tournament titles. Name brand programs Louisville, Kentucky, Villanova and Virginia filled in the gaps over that span.

But when it comes to another measurement of college basketball success — producing national player of the year winners — parity is more prevalent. The last 11 Naismith College Player of the Year winners are all from different schools, and a couple of them came from mid-major programs.

BYU guard Jimmer Fredette won the honor in 2011, and Dayton’s Obi Toppin exploded onto the national scene to earn the award last season. Can you guess which program most recently produced two Naismith award winners? It wasn’t Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina or Villanova.

It was Oklahoma, with
