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. Star guard Buddy Hield is on the preseason All-Big 12 First team, and looks to lead the team towards the top of the Big […]

Cal upsets ‘Cuse to head to 2K Sports final against Texas

The 2K Sports Classic will have an interesting final this Friday night with the 10th ranked Texas Longhorns facing off against the upstart California Golden Bears. Cal pulled off a nice upset of the 23rd ranked Syracuse Orange 73-59 Thursday evening while the Longhorns defeated Iowa soundly, 71-57. It was expected that Texas would be […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Robert Carter Transfers to Maryland

Somehow Robert Carter managed to both be the 7th best defensive rebounder in the country but also not able to get on the floor for Georgia Tech, playing under 20 minutes per game for the team finished tied for 11th in the ACC. He’s now heading up the coast a bit, settling on Maryland as […]

Conference Review and Preview: SWAC

From now until the college basketball season starts, I will be taking a look at every conference in the country.  Last year the SWAC made the dubious decision to invite ridicule by allowing teams ineligible for the NCAA tournament (due to APR) to compete in the conference tournament. Fortunately for them (though perhaps not for […]

Fresh off an ACC title and a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament, Virginia has given Head Coach Tony Bennett a new 7 year extension. He’s now currently signed through the 2020-21 season and will be making just under $2 million per year. Reports further stated that Bennett likely turned down a higher salary to […]
