Catching Up with Mike Mathews: A Life in Basketball

A Blountstown native who finished his high school career at Florida High School in Tallahassee, playing at Florida State seemed part of Mike Mathews’ destiny. At 6’10” with long arms and range on his jump-shot, Mathews would help FSU go from ACC doormat to respectability over his five years with the program. Mathews spent a year at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia before...

Washington Wizards back to action in Las Vegas Summer League

The Washington Wizards are just one day away from their first competitive action since their heartbreaking exit in the second round of the NBA playoffs. And while it will be the Wizards who take the court in Las Vegas from July 11th to the 13th, the name on their jersey is about the only thing they will have in common with the 46-36 Wizards team from a year ago. In fact there is...

Kemba Walker, Juan Dixon Among All-Time NCAA Tournament Shining Stars (Photos)

We all know the stories of North Carolina’s Michael Jordan and Kentucky’s Anthony Davis. A lot of what makes the NCAA Tournament so great, however, is that any single player can put a team on his back. From traditionally small-program standouts like Davidson’s Stephen Curry and BYU’s Jimmer Fredette to powerhouse studs like UConn’s Kemba Walker...

Photos: Maryland’s Juan Dixon, Scott Van Pelt, Torrey Smith Wearing “Think B1G” Sunglasses In Prep Of Big Ten Move

Maryland officially joins the Big Ten July 1, but it appears the Terrapins have already begun to get ready for their move from the ACC to the Midwest.  As part of an apparent marketing ploy, Maryland’s famous bronze Terrapin, Testudo, and a number of former program greats were seen wearing sunglasses with “B1G” encrusted on the lenses.  Testudo rocking his new B1G shades...

Duke-Maryland rivalry goes out on high note

DURHAM, N.C. -- For one night -- the last night -- it was just as good as it ever was. Maryland will head to the Big Ten next year and will not likely face Duke again in the regular season for a very long time, unless the ACC-Big Ten scheduling gods have a sense of humor, of course.

Maryland @ Duke: The Finale Tonight @ 6pm

I am a HUGE Maryland basketball fan. I remember playing ball after school on the playground in elementary school, listening to the ACC tournament on the radio. My friends and I pretended to be Tom Roy, Owen Brown, Brad Davis, Mo Howard and the like. Unfortunately, with the Terrapins move to the Big 10, I feel it will never be the same. Maryland (14-11, 6-6 ACC) is at Duke (19-5,...
