Staying put: coaches whose jobs are older than their players

One of the longest tenured coaches in the game is one most casual fans have never heard of. Bob Hurley has been the head coach at St. Anthony's High School in Jersey City, New Jersey since 1972. He has ex players who could be in their 60s now. He's also been at his position longer than any current college coach. Jim Boeheim has been at his current job since 1976, which...

Davidson suffers downside of March

The locker room felt like a funeral. Eyes stared at the floor. Except for a few players talking in hushed tones to reporters, the place was silent. Pizza boxes were piled in the corner, but most of the pizza remained uneaten. Half an hour before, this Davidson team was only 70 seconds away from being on top of the college-basketball world.

Marquette avoids upset with last-second layup

With two minutes to go in the game it looked like things were all but over for Marquette.  Then they hit three consecutive three-pointers and climbed back in it to only be down one.  With less than 10 seconds left in the game, Davidson threw the ball away and Nik Cochran stepped out of bounds trying to keep the ball in play (GIF below).  Marquette with 6.7 seconds left put the...

Marquette must slow Davidson's offense

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Marquette had to do many things right to earn a piece of the Big East Conference regular season title and a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. One thing coach Buzz Williams said his team didn't do was play a complete game, which the Golden Eagles will likely need to beat surging Davidson in Thursday's second-round East Regional game.

NCAA Tournament Preview: The Forgotten Four

Photo Credit: The Jordan List Midwest: #6 Memphis Critics of the Tigers have not hesitated to blast a less than stellar conference schedule at every opportunity. And while I don’t disagree with the poor product that the C-USA puts out, projecting NCAA Tournament performance based solely on affiliation and strength of schedule is unwise.
