Texas Longhorns men's basketball statistical leaders

Do we typically host articles like Texas Longhorns men's basketball statistical leaders? Came across it at NPP, it seems to me like it might fail WP:GNG (only one source, the media guide) and WP:NOTSTATS, thought I'd ask the project before I tagged it. SportingFlyer T·C 02:08, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

@SportingFlyer: No opinion on the practice. There are other similar pages at Category:Lists of college basketball statistical leaders by team. It wouldn't be a problem to source it independently for a school like Texas. The more relevant project would be Resource: WikiProject College Basketball. Cheers.--Bagumba (talk) 04:31, 7 May 2020 (UTC)
@Bagumba: Thanks for your response. It looks as if all of these have been created/are being created by one user during the past few months. SportingFlyer T·C 04:36, 7 May 2020 (UTC)

Discussion about Sporting News as reliable source

Hi there, I started a discussion at Resource: Reliable sources/Noticeboard that may interest users here. I read this article on The Sporting News that contained a bunch of factual errors about Olympic basketball - I then learned that the Sporting News was basically demolished in 2012 and by 2015 was being used by the new owner of the name to promote DAZN.

Many basketball clubs in Europe have sponsored team names that seem to change every year or so. We have already made the step into changing the name of the pages to the original club names. However, on most pages such as season pages the sponsored names are still used. Therefore, it is very hard to find the team you are looking for because the name constantly changes.

Is there a way we can solve this problem? Maybe we can add a section "Sponsored names" (example) to season pages and then refer to the teams under their non-sponsored names? --H-Hurry (talk) 13:34, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

If the sponsored names are not recognizeable years later, they don't meet WP:COMMONNAME. If they are considered the common name, then use redirects for people that might look using a different name.--Bagumba (talk) 16:20, 14 May 2020 (UTC)
I'd be okay using sponsored names if they are used for several seasons, but if it's a one-year thing that passed, no need to mention it. ~EDDY (talk/contribs)~ 17:55, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

The diamond ball 2004 page doesnt list USA as being there

I was just looking at the Diamond Ball 2004 page, it lists the participants without listing team USA. The USA was present and played, I watched the game against Serbia, and I was actually an organizer of the event. Not sure who Im supposed to address to make a change there. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by Gorzul (talk o contribs) 21:03, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

According to this, the US was involved in an exhibition game, not the tournament: link. Zagalejo^^^ 16:13, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

Template:KK Crvena zvezda coach navbox dispute edit

Need feedback, even though it's obvious what my stance is. Who's in the right when it comes to the impending edit war on Template:KK Crvena zvezda coach navbox? (talk) 06:54, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

@ You are right. There is absolutely no need to divide the head coaches by historical eras. IndexAccount (talk · contribs) Please stop grouping head coaches based on historical eras. There is no consensus for that. - Sabbatino (talk) 09:30, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. (talk) 15:16, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Protocol of Stockholm

I'm a member of the Resource: WikiProject Handball and I'm working on the article Protocol of Stockholm which involves basketball.

I think must of you don't know that basketball was under the umbrella of the International Amateur Handball Federation before the protocol.

Could somebody of the basketball project read the draft and make sure that the basketball view is correct and add maybe more information from basketball sources.

I've two sources in german which are good. If you like to read them and add the content of them please write me an e-mail

Thank you for your help.--Malo95 (talk) 16:42, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
