Here’s a look at the top transfer players heading into the next college basketball season.
It seemed like VCU was primed to remain on their perch atop the CAA standings for years to come. That all changed in May when VCU along with Butler joined the Atlantic-10 for the upcoming season.
Chaz Williams took the conference by storm in his first season in the Atlantic-10 and only figures to be more of a menace in 2012-13.
Some people told me I was crazy when I made that statement prior to Kentucky’s win over Louisville on Saturday but when you watch “MKG” play, it’s tough not to see why he’s more valuable than anyone else in college basketball.
Masiello on the court is as good as I’ve seen. It’s hard to believe he hasn’t coached a Division 1 game yet.
Fittingly, Kemba Walker and the Huskies won the NCAA crown and cemented Jim Calhoun as a coaching legend and Walker as one of the tournament’s all time shining stars.
Kemba Walker scored 16 points and Connecticut beat Butler 53-41 on Monday night to give Jim Calhoun his third national championship, something only four other coaches have done.
Kemba Walker scored 18 points Saturday night to help Connecticut keep its remarkable postseason run going with a
56-55 victory over Kentucky that placed the Huskies one win away from their third, and most improbable, NCAA title.
Shelvin Mack scored 23 points on 8-of-11 shooting and Zach Hahn came up big off the bench with eight second-half points in the Final Four on Saturday night, leading Butler back to the national title game with a 70-62 win over upstart VCU.
The upcoming 2011 Final Four will be remembered for ages. Here are some post game thoughts from a dejected Roy Williams and an emotionally drained John Calipari last night in Newark.
The Final Four is set with Butler, UConn, VCU and Kentucky set to battle it out in Houston on Saturday. Though nothing is certain, Craigie is sure VCU is certainly not going to win it all and you can “lock that up.”
Las Vegas casinos have tabbed Kentucky the latest favorite — just beating out UConn — in an NCAA tournament full of upsets, and are hoping that VCU ends its improbable run without a title.
All the top seeds have gone home, all the “smart money” is down the tubes and millions of brackets are in the trash. Even in the unpredictable world of March Madness, this is a Final Four nobody could have imagined.
Shelvin Mack scored 27 points, including five in overtime, and Butler returned to the Final Four with a 74-71 victory over Florida on Saturday.
He’s gone, but not forgotten. A mother and father are so desperate to find their missing son they hope a billboard will help them crack the case.
