Norfolk State center Kyle O’Quinn has been the breakout star of the NCAA Tournament in the first week. The senior from Jamaica, New York posted 26 points and 14 rebounds in an upset win over Missouri Friday, his 20th double-double of the season. He did an interview with CBS that played during halftime of one of the games Saturday and was asked how he was so overlooked by colleges coming out of high school.
“When you only play one year of high school basketball, people think maybe he never proved himself,” O’Quinn said, responding to a question from Charles Barkley. “I was a benchwarmer my junior year. Schools have their recruiting plans laid out years before. I probably never came across the head coach’s desk, and Norfolk State was the first one to jump.”
And now the Spartans are benefiting from giving O’Quinn a look. He’s averaged over 16 points and 10.5 rebounds per game each of the two seasons while shooting over 55%. After what he’s done in his college career, maybe NBA teams w...

What took you so long, Chuck? As you know, truTV has been hosting much of the NCAA tournament action this year for a second year straight. Charles Barkley has also returned as an analyst. As you may or may not know, there is a show on truTV that is called “Hardcore Pawn.” Much like the show “Pawn Stars” on the History Channel, we understand the play on words. On Sunday night...
With the NCAA Tournament being televised on truTV, it's been hilarious to watch seasoned basketball announcers like Marv Albert and Jim Nantz read ads for ridiculous reality shows like Lizard Lick Towing and Hardcore Pawn. On Sunday night, the Xavier/Lehigh game ran into the originally scheduled broadcast time for Hardcore Pawn. As Ernie Johnson was reading an ad for the...

CBS is dreadful, except for How I Met Your Mother. In an attempt to bring humor to a shameless plug, Sir Charles Barkley most likely angered his "people" with this joke from Sunday's broadcast during the NCAA tournament: "I thought it said another four letters at the end." Let me remind you, Arizona blow jobs. [Follow me @TravisHouser]

It seems as if nobody is a fan of Baylor’s neon yellow uniforms, except for maybe adidas, which is getting plenty of notoriety from them. The Baylor uniforms were unveiled earlier in March along with the creative tournament threads of Cincinnati and Louisville. Kansas coach Bill Self already shared his negative thoughts about the human highlighter sticks, and now Charles Barkley...
How great is it that truTV is broadcasting a portion of the NCAA Tournament? For one thing it means more televised Charles Barkley, and we all know that the more airtime Sir Charles receives, a better place the world becomes.
To wit, check out Barkley’s response to Ernie Johnson plugging the show Hardcore Pawn, which was set to follow truTV’s March Madness coverage. Chuck...
Charles Barkley is a pretty good NBA analyst and a pretty awful college basketball analyst, but either way he's always good for a cheap laugh or two.
I only recently realized that the whole cast doing March Madness analysis/recap in the CBS Studios are working really long hours. That realization came when last night, Charles Barkley was asked to...

We can always count on Sir Charles to make a clever play on words, so when Ernie Johnson did a promo for the TV show Hardcore Pawn of course Chuck chimed in.
Former NBA All-Star and world champion Shaquille O’Neal has now moved on to life as a studio analyst and can be seen on TNT as well as NBATV. Before he teamed up with Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley, and Ernie Johnson and before he was acting in movies like Blue Chips and catching alley-oops from Anfernee “Penny” [...]
