After leading Team USA to win gold at the 2012 London Games, Duke's Coach K announced he was stepping down from coaching the team. Now, however, he says he may have changed his mind.
A couple of weeks ago there was a USA Today report wherein Ben McLemore’s AAU coach claimed to have funneled money from… a guy who helps players find agents at a non-profit basketball thing for helping basketball players find agents or something. I wrote about it here. Remember? We all chuckled to ourselves and said, “Well of course a SHAMateur athlete took money from some...

Former Indiana Hoosiers center Cody Zeller achieved a standing vertical leap of 35.5″ at the NBA Draft combine on Friday. The 20-year-old Zeller’s jump is a record for any individual listed at 6’9″ or above in the last decade. After averaging 16.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 36 games as a sophomore, the 7-foot, 240 pound Zeller unwisely declared for the draft...

Goodwin is physically not ready for the pro game, and he’s more than likely going to be in the D-League.

Kansas and Duke have good point guards...
