College Basketball Replay: The Problems Won’t Go Away Until One Basic Reform Is Made

Let’s say you’re a replay zealot, as I am. What’s a replay zealot, first of all? Someone who believes in the more expansive use of replay to correct calls in all sports, someone who thinks that more applications of replay can only be a good thing for sports.

There’s just one stat that jumps out of the score sheet...

Kaminsky Versus Okafor: Frank Wins The Matchup, Jahlil Wins The Title

While National Player of the Year Frank Kaminsky took the battle, Jahlil Okafor won the war. Kaminsky dominated Okafor much of the night, but Duke did just enough to win the 2015 national championship in a thriller.

Badgers can’t overcome Duke’s guards, lose national title game

Wisconsin struggled to hold down Duke’s guard play in its December loss, the same was true during Monday’s national championship game.

As Frank Kaminsky Enters The National Spotlight, Allow Him To Be Seen As A College Player For One More Night

Frank Kaminsky is pretty good at the basketball. Most of us already knew that. His footwoork under the basket, his ability to shoot from distance, and his ability to be clutch have helped make other people realize that over the course of a full season. Doing so in a Final Four game against previously unbeaten Kentucky has won the respect of those who hadn’t previously known just...

The Twitter Mob, Examined: Wisconsin-Kentucky Was Pretty, The Aftermath Was Not

The Wisconsin Badgers beat the Kentucky Wildcats in a wildly entertaining Final Four game. End column… or not.
