The Cougars graduate the vast majority of production from a bad team, so huge questions abound. The 2017 NCAA tournament field was announced yesterday, and WSU fans are reminded that for the ninth consecutive year, we Cougars don’t get to play along. (Although you can, yanno, play along with us like the rest of America.) Before the tournament tips off with the First Four tomorrow...

With Indiana hiring a new coach, there’s a chance for the rivalry to resume. The Indiana/Kentucky rivalry, once a staple during the non conference portion of every college basketball season, has laid dormant since 2011, with the exception of a pair of NCAA Tournament meetings in 2012 and 2016. The regular season series ended after the 2011-12 season when former Indiana head coach...

The way Thursday night’s Sweet 16 contest between West region No. 1 Gonzaga and No. 4 West Virginia played out, it’s no wonder the Mountaineers were in it to the end. It was the type of game whose box score suggested West Virginia should have won. Bob Huggins’ team imposed its own style of game on the mighty Zags, yet the Bulldogs still survived, passing their first real test...

It seems LaVar Ball always has something to say to stir up controversy, but perhaps no one feels that more than his sons’ high school basketball coach.Stephan Gilling previously coached the oldest of the Ball brothers, Lonzo, as an assistant at Chino Hills High School in California. But this season, he took over the head coaching job with senior LiAngelo Ball and sophomore LaMelo...
The sun still rose. Many people will look at the score his morning and think that Purdue was completely outclassed. It is hard not to disagree when the final margin is 32 points. Kansas was clearly the better team and for the most part, Purdue never had an answer for their athleticism. It is what I was afraid of coming into the game. For all of Purdue’s strengths, the Boilers...

There were 6 lead changes in between the 4:30 mark and 1 minute. Both teams had chances to close out the game, but neither team could do it. Oregon just happened to have the lead with 1 min left and neither team scored after that. Michigan...

What a fitting way to lose.

Rewatching that final play, I counted...
For a team that has advanced to the Sweet 16 in five straight NCAA Tournament appearances, something seems off about the Florida Gators’ trip to the New York Regional semifinals. Maybe it’s that the Gators lost three of their last four games entering the tournament and appeared to be a shell of the team that was victorious in nine straight contests this season. Maybe it’s...
LaVar Ball has been everywhere the past month or so, and there seems to be no end in sight to his ubiquitousness. And what certainly isn’t helping matters is the continued coverage media outlets provide him. That’s even becoming an issue for some at ESPN.LaVar Ball, who is the father of UCLA point guard Lonzo, apparently got into a screaming match with Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s...
What a day for the coaching carousel.First Georgetown axed John Thompson III after 13 years, and then Winthrop’s Pat Kelsey stranded UMass at the altar. Kelsey cancelled his introductory press conference at the last minute because of a “change of heart,” according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. Twitter quickly exploded with rumors that Kelsey may have received a call from Georgetown...

A week ago, your team made it into the NCAA Tournament and you were excited at the possibilities. Do this, beat them, hold on, make a run and you'd be in the Final Four in no time.

And with that, we can add another one to the long list of painful tournament losses for the Duke Blue Devils. Yes, despite winning the ACC tournament and entering March Madness as the prohibitive favorites, Coach K and crew couldn't get it done against South Carolina and were forced to take their talents back to Durham about three weeks too soon for Duke fans' liking. Conversely...
Our staff continues to share their personal thoughts on Indiana’s former head coach. Sometimes, relationships simply fall apart. I’m not the first to make this comparison. I’m not even the first one on this site. But it’s an apt analogy to use when looking at where the things between Tom Crean and Indiana went wrong. There was no smoking gun. There was never a point of...
