Gary Parrish is CBSSports.com's college basketball columnist.
He was named a Senior Writer in July 2006 after seven years at the Commercial Appeal. There, he covered John Calipari's Memphis Tigers for five seasons and, among other things, exposed the "Albert Means Recruiting Scandal" that made Alabama's Logan Young the first booster in NCAA history to be sentenced to prison for essentially buying a prospect.
Parrish now spends his days writing columns, blogging and addressing issues in college basketball, both large and small. His hope is that he can consistently make you laugh, cry, think and better understand the sport that provides America's best postseason.
