    The Seattle Times: Husky Men's Basketball Blog
    18 Sep 2014 | 4:45 pm
    Had a chance to talk to Lorenzo Romar about several topics, including Robert Upshaw. "To Robert’s credit there were some things that we had talked about," Romar said. "There were some expectations and I think he’s worked hard at trying to do the right thing. As a result, we’re all in this together now.” Many believe that if Upshaw, a 6-11 redshirt sophomore center, fulfills his potential, then the Huskies can snap their three-year NCAA tournament drought. “He is unique because there’s just not a lot of guys like him that can run the floor and block shots and rebound the way that…

    Let’s start with the things we already know: Mike Krzyzewski is the head coach of the Duke Blue Devils men’s basketball team. Mike Krzyzewski is the head coach is the head of the USA Basketball team. Recently, there have been questions about whether or not Krzyzewski is using Team USA as a showcase for himself and the Duke program. Krzyzewski thinks that it’s utterly ridiculous to believe that he’s using Team USA as a showcase for himself and the Duke program. With all those things in mind, this is what Krzyzewski decided to wear to today’s Duke-Tulane game: Yes, not a Duke polo,…

  • Michigan Basketball shooting guard preview

    21 Sep 2014 | 6:39 am
    Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman (Express-Times Photo | CHRIS POST) Michigan basketball may have the best shooting guard in the Big 10 this season, with a few talented freshman as well. Returning junior guard Caris LeVert will start at shooting guard and take up the bulk of the minutes. Backing up LeVert this season, will be freshman Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman and freshman Austin Hatch whom will not see much action this year at shooting guard. Caris LeVert is expected to play over 35 minutes a game this season, leaving little room for others to see the floor. LeVert is a possible All-American and…

  • The Louisville Staff Will Have An In-Home Visit With Perry Dozier Next Week

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:21 am
    Photo: Kelly Kline – adidas Very shorty after five star shooting guard Antonio Blakeney decided to reopen his recruiting, Rick Pitino and the Louisville staff decided to shift their attention to someone else. That someone else happens to be four star combo guard Perry Dozier. The 6-foot-6 Columbia, S.C., native had been on Louisville’s radar throughout the spring and summer, but the staff stopped actively recruiting him once they landed a commitment from Blakeney earlier this month. As soon as Blakeney announced that he’d reopen his recruiting earlier this week, the Courier-Journal’s…
  • Young Kentucky Wildcats strive for ninth title

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:18 am
    John Calipari There has been a lot of criticism directed at John Calipari and the players that come to the Kentucky Wildcats to play for one year before going to the NBA. Despite all the criticism the ‘one and done’ model receives, the pros just might outweigh the cons. As players leave after playing at UK for one year, this frees up more spots for new players. James Young, Julius Randle, Jarrod Polson, and Jon Hood have left the team since the 2013-2014 season, which has freed up four new spots for new young, talented players. Devin Booker, Trey Lyles, Karl Towns, and Tyler Ulis, all…
  • Louisville paper features John Calipari-as-baby Photoshop

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:26 am
    John Calipari certainly came across as whiny when Jim Boeheim told Syracuse.com that the Kentucky coach felt Mike Krzyzewski was getting an unfair recruiting advantage by coaching Team USA.  “It’s a concern he has raised before,” Boeheim said. “That particular case he has mentioned. He’s said he thinks its an advantage.” Yesterday, Calipari clarified his stance with a series of tweets, saying, “If – and I emphasize if – they gained any advantage, because of that work, I don’t begrudge them in the least.” Friday, the front page of the Louisville Courier-Journal‘s…

  • Louisville newspaper apologizes to John Calipari

    Jeff Eisenberg
    22 Sep 2014 | 3:47 pm
    The uproar over the ill-conceived illustration in the Louisville Courier-Journal last Friday ended in the most amiable way possible. The newspaper printed a letter from executive editor Neil Budde on Monday apologizing for the illustration that featured Kentucky coach John Calipari's head on the body of a diaper-clad baby. The illustration ran with an otherwise reasonable column by Tim Sullivan that focused on the perceived advantages of coaching USA Basketball and the tendency of coaches to complain when a competitor gains even the slightest edge. Budde's letter acknowledged the illustration…

    Here's the most exciting aspect of Nebraska basketball's recent resurgence under coach Tim Miles: The best may be yet to come. Not only are the Huskers poised to contend in the Big Ten next season, they also are assembling a formidable recruiting class set to arrive the following year as well.  Nebraska bolstered that class Monday when it secured a commitment from Edward Morrow, a 6-foot-7 forward from famed Chicago power Simeon High School. Morrow, Rivals.com's No. 103 prospect in the class of 2015, is the second top 150 recruit the Huskers have landed, joining 5-foot-11 point guard Glynn…

    Any Kentucky fans who turned to the front of the Louisville Courier-Journal sports page Friday morning likely weren't pleased with what they saw. The photo illustration that ran alongside an otherwise fair column by Tim Sullivan looked like something a Louisville fan would have posted to a Cardinals messageboard. Since Sullivan's piece focused on the perceived advantages of coaching USA Basketball and the tendency of coaches to complain when a competitor gains even the slightest edge, someone at the newspaper chose to accompany it with a photoshopped picture of John Calipari's face atop a…

    Not even a week after he was arrested for misdemeanor assault and barred from campus aside from class time, Texas guard Martez Walker did the one thing he could not afford to do if he has any hope of playing for the Longhorns this season. He got into more trouble. Walker was arrested for trespassing Monday after returning to the same dorm where he allegedly punched his girlfriend four times last week during a heated argument, the Austin American Statesman reported on Wednesday. Walker's girlfriend told police the initial argument last week began because he was upset that she went to a happy…
  • Top freshman JaQuan Lyle no longer on Oregon's roster

    After Oregon updated its men's basketball roster on Tuesday evening, it didn't take long for savvy fans to point out a key difference. JaQuan Lyle, Oregon's top freshman, is no longer on it. Lyle was not admitted to the university despite being cleared by the NCAA, Rivals.com reported Wednesday morning. An Oregon spokesman confirmed Lyle has been removed from the roster but offered no further comment, citing student privacy laws. Adding to the confusion over Lyle's status at Oregon is a tweet he sent Tuesday night that read "I'm good, y'all! I promise, just wait!!" The Rivals.com report…

    Fox Sports did a nice piece on Value Add yesterday that has resulted in 1,100 Facebook Shares so far. It was a lot more fun when NBC Sports picked up on it back when Jae Crowder was rising toward the top of the rankings. Still, assuming Cracked Sidewalks and MU Scoop both have about 17.99 million unique visitors a month (just a guess, but I’m sure it must be accurate ;-) ), that would mean over half of the top 10 sports sites have had good coverage of the Value Add system that started here.

  • 1st Losing Season Since 1999 Possible Under Projection

    22 Aug 2014 | 11:21 pm
    Marquette projects to go 15-17 overall, 6-12 in the Big East, and be eliminated in the first round of the CIT (that's the tournament below the NIT, but better than the CBI). This would give MU its first losing season since Mike Deane went 14-15 in 1999 after fMU has six straight 20-win seasons.If that happens, MU fans should remember the losing season before that - when many fans booed a young MU team that went 11-18 in 1991 in another coach's first season (Kevin O'Neill). That team went onto go to the Sweet 16 once the freshman had become seniors.This may come as a shock to many of our fans…

    Robert Upshaw is participating in team activities for the Washington Huskies just like every other player, a UW spokeswoman said Tuesday. Coach Lorenzo Romar was unavailable for comment and the team isn't planning on releasing a statement or making a formal announcement regarding Upshaw, who is on track to play this season - his first at Washington. The past year has been an uncertain time for the 6-11, 255-pound redshirt sophomore center who arrived at Washington after spending one season at Fresno State. Due to NCAA transfer rules he sat out last season and his future at Washington appeared…

    I've been a basketball coach for nearly 30 years and as far as I'm concerned it's the greatest, most rewarding job on the planet! However, I'll also be the first to admit that it can be extremely frustrating at times. One of those times is when a player tells me that he or she just doesn't have enough time to get into the gym and shoot. It might even be true every once in a while but every time I hear that I'm literally ready to pull my hair out! What do you do when you have a player who needs to get in a high quality, game like shooting workout but is limited by how much time he can spend in…

Recently, I came across a book called "Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs," by Carmine Gallo that discusses what the author considers to be the driving principles behind Job's success. While the book is not written specifically for basketball coaches it does provide a rough outline that can be used as a blueprint by all of us in the profession. In the following paragraphs the principles are Steve…

    Coaches, players, and especially fans all love to see rim rattling dunks and ankle breaking crossovers but sometimes forget that the objective of the game is putting the ball through the basket. There are literally thousands of different offenses and set plays but each and every one of them is practically useless unless it’s built around a great shooter. Great shooters are an opposing team’s nightmare because they stretch the defense, can score points in a hurry, and get the fans all fired up. With a great shooter on the floor every offense and every set play is much more effective and…

Using an array of moves with up-and-unders, right and left hook shots, and most preferably a drop-step to create space for a shot.
