Can The Johnnies Make The Tournament In 2015?

After a promising beginning to the season, Big East conference play has been unkind to the St. Johns Red Storm, who are currently in sixth place with a 17-9 overall record but a 6-7 conference record. St. Johns seemed to find their footing recently, winning four of out five games since January 31st. After beating […]

Ticket market hot for Louisville-Duke ACC clash

The KFC Yum! Center is going to be packed and rocking on January 17th, when Rick Pitino’s sixth-ranked Louisville Cardinals host the fourth-ranked Duke Blue Devils. The epic battle between Pitino and Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski takes center stage, but this game will be white hot thanks to two top-10 teams clashing, as well […]

Affordable tickets for pivotal NCAA games out west this week

Three top-tier west coast teams are playing very important games to their seasons this week. Two of these teams are ranked, and one of them could potentially fall into a slippery slope towards decline. Their opponents are all unranked foes, but all have a record of 7-3. This should be a very interesting slate of […]

Oklahoma Sooners Top Games 5 of The Season

The Oklahoma Sooners come into this season with some expectations after finishing off last season pretty strongly. They won three of their last five games, and received a fifth seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The top five most expensive games for UConn Men’s basketball tickets

After winning last year’s national title, you can expect an increase in UConn Huskies tickets in 2014-15. Despite last year’s catalysts Shabazz Napier, DeAndre Daniels, and Niels Giffey all leaving the school, Connecticut residents and fans love their Huskies and will pay top dollar to see them on the hardwood. Below is a breakdown of […]


We’ve Moved!

The writers of Run The Floor have moved over to The Student Section which will be combining Bloguin’s college basketball and football coverage under one roof. We hope to see you over there.


Conference Review and Preview: Big Sky

North Dakota almost crashed the party that Montana and Weber State has been throwing for themselves for the last three years, but in the end it was the conference’s top seed who cruised into the NCAA tournament and were dealt a semi surprising 16 seed. Perhaps they were shocked as well, as Weber State pushed […]


Conference Review and Preview: Big South

The most exciting team in the Big South, VMI, is leaving the league this year, but with some of the other smaller leagues getting weaker in realignment, perhaps the Big South can get out of the 16 seed rut the league has been in the last few years. Defending tournament champion Coastal Carolina almost pulled […]


Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin Agrees to 7 Year Contract Extension

The Cincinnati board of trustees approved the next contract extension for head baskeball coach Mick Cronin today. It’s a 7 year deal that will pay Cronin 2.2 million dollars a year. That makes him one of the 4 highest paid coaches in the American Athletic Conference behind Kevin Ollie of National Champion UConn, the legendary […]


Conference Review and Preview: America East

The America East might have the dumbest conference tournament format for a one bid league, and that is saying something. The games before the title game are played at Albany, before the conference title game is played at the home court of the higher seed. The consequence this year was that top seeded Vermont, who […]

They're the Lumberjacks, and they w

Conference Review and Preview: Southland

Last year Stephen F Austin provided efficiency nerds (including me) with a great low major story for the second straight year. Unlike the year before, however, Stephen F. Austin rewarded our love by winning the conference tournament, and knocking off VCU in the first round of the NCAA tournament as well. The team’s defensive KenPom […]

Mercer gave us the most iconic underdog moment of March in 2014.

Conference Review and Preview: Southern

For the third year in a row, Davidson either won their division or topped the league standings outright, and last year they did it in convincing fashion, losing just one conference game, to Elon in overtime. They were stunned in overtime in the conference tournament semifinals by Western Carolina, and Wofford continued its stranglehold on […]

Conference Review and Preview: MEAC

North Carolina Central stormed through the league last year, losing just one conference game (their first, ironically). They also upset NC State, and played Cincinnati and Wichita State tough before ultimately suffering close losses. They lose five Seniors off last year’s team, but only two of them could really be called huge contributors, so Central […]
