        Stockton, a 5-foot-11 point guard, is a Mr. Basketball candidate.

        Cote, a 6-9, 225-pound power forward, earned all-Canada honors out of Champlain-St.Lambert in Quebec.

        Barbour, a 6-5 swingman, is a graduate of Elizabethtown High, where he won a state title in 2000. He also guided Wabash to the junior-college national championship last season.

        GEORGIA:

The NCAA denied Damien Wilkins' appeal for immediate eligibility, so he will have to sit out this season after transferring from N.C. State.

        Wilkins, nephew of Dominique Wilkins, played at N.C. State for two seasons and initially made himself available for this year's NBA draft. He withdrew from the draft but was not allowed to return to school.
