Southern Illinois coach Barry Hinson regrets singling out one of his players in a postgame diatribe that has gone viral. And that’s about it.
There is no team more prepared for the long haul than the Wildcats.
Orange duo C.J. Fair and Tyler Ennis both scored 21 points, and No. 2 Syracuse pulled out a 68-63 victory over St. John’s on Sunday at Madison Square Garden.
Missouri’s perimeter triumvirate of Jordan Clarkson, Jabari Brown, and Earnest Ross wasn’t mentioned in the same breath at the start of the season with the back courts at UConn, Memphis, Louisville and Oklahoma State, but that will all change moving forward.
The Blue Devils have three known commodities in Jabari Parker, Rodney Hood and point guard Quinn Cook, but after that everything is in flux.
I said after I saw UConn practice in October that Napier was the best guard in college basketball. And after the first few weeks of the season, it’s hard to waver from that proclamation.
The freshman trio of Andrew Wiggins, Wayne Selden, and Joel Embiid may spend a lot of time in bold print, but Perry Ellis will ultimately be Kansas’ anchor.
The Huskies showed signs of brilliance in Friday night’s 78-77 win over Maryland at the Barclays Center, and even though they only beat the Terps by a single point, there was more than enough reasons to believe that Kevin Ollie’s squad will be a top 15-20 team all season.
West Virginia coach Bob Huggins told me on Tuesday in Morgantown that junior guard Gary Browne has been the Mountaineers’ best shooter so far in preseason practice.
The 6-5 Pinkston is undersized but plays bigger than his height. After averaging 13.3 points and 5.0 rebounds last year as a sophomore, it’s time for Pinkston to emerge as one of the better players in the Big East as a junior.
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy told me on Monday that the amount of games that Marshall Henderson will miss this season has still yet to be determined.
Can Louisville repeat? Without question. The Cardinals lost Peyton Siva and Gorgui Dieng, but there’s still more than enough left over to cut down the nets in Dallas next April.
CBS RADIO, the Brooklyn Nets, and Barclays Center have formed a strategic alliance that combines the strengths of the powerful media and entertainment brands, resulting in increased coverage on WFAN 66AM and 101.9 FM.
You’ve got to give Kevin Willard credit. The Seton Hall coach knew after last season he desperately needed to upgrade the talent on his roster, and he did just that again on Thursday by nabbing a commitment from Lincoln shooting guard Isaiah Whitehead.
Ware vowed to return this year from a gruesome leg fracture suffered during the NCAA Tournament. So far, so good.
