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 […]

Virginia Extends Tony Bennett

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 […]

The AAC Announces 2014-15 League Format

The American, shorter wise known as the AAC, announced their 2014-15 format for this upcoming basketball season. With 11 teams, gone is the round robin. It is replaced by 8 home and home foes, one home opponent and one road opponent. For example, the defending National Champion Connecticut Huskies will play home and home against […]

Early NBA Draft Big Board

With all of the heavy hitters having either declared for the NBA Draft or announced that they will stay in school for another year, this is a good time to unveil my first ranking of the 2014 Draft prospects. Please note that this is a ranking of who I think the best players in the […]

Brandon Sherrod Leaving Yale To Sing A Capella

In one life, Brandon Sherrod is known as a decent rebounder and shot blocker as a forward for Yale’s basketball team. But in another he is an excellent singer. So excellent, in fact, that he was among 14 students chosen to make up Yale a capella group, the Whiffenpoofs (yes, you read that correctly). Because […]

Wiggins, Embiid, Parker Skipping NBA Draft Combine

In what shouldn’t be a surprise to many, the top 3 ranked prospects in the 2014 NBA Draft are skipping the combine, via a report from ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. Parker and Embiid announced that they would be skipping the combine earlier today, with Wiggins following suit tonight. It should come as no surprise that they […]
