    Derrick Walton Coach John Beilein and his Michigan basketball team will have their hands full once again with another gauntlet of a schedule. The Wolverines start the year off with the Legends Classic. Possible matches with Villanova or VCU could prove troublesome early in the year. Michigan’s first big challenge comes December 2nd when they face ACC power Syracuse and Jim Boeheim. Syracuse has a new look this season with an incredibly tough defense and lack of shooting threats. This could be a battle of shooting powerhouses with zone defenses, but this year Michigan has the advantage…

    The ripple of recruiting momentum Auburn generated during the first few months of Bruce Pearl's tenure has grown into a tidal wave now that his show-cause penalty has expired and he can speak directly to prospects again.  Pearl landed his fourth key recruit in less than a week Thursday when former Maryland signee Trayvon Reed selected Auburn. Reed, a 7-foot-1 center rated No. 91 in's Class of 2014 rankings, is expected to enroll at Elevate Prep School in Delray Beach, Fla. for at least the fall semester. He could join Auburn as soon as December if the Tigers have a vacant…

Judging by the above video, Avery certainly looks to be living up to the hashtag three weeks into his treatment.  Though chemotherapy may have robbed him of his hair and prevented him from starting first grade with the rest of his classmates, it has not sapped Avery's spirit or will to live. His enthusiasm upon learning that he can finally leave the hospital…

The Cougars reportedly had narrowed their search to two finalists: longtime Wofford coach Mike Young and ex-Charleston star and NBA journeyman Anthony Johnson. Then the unthinkable happened two days later. Young removed his name from consideration first, Johnson did the same soon afterward, and suddenly one of the nation's better mid-major programs embarrassingly is starting from scratch in its coaching search even as the calendar nears…
  • Five thoughts on the newly released ACC schedule

    Jeff Eisenberg
    27 Aug 2014 | 1:33 pm
    The ACC released its full schedule Wednesday on the eve of the start of college football. Here's a look at five of the things that stood out: 1. Feb. 18 is the can't-miss day on the schedule: That's when Duke and North Carolina square off in Durham for the first of two meetings and when Louisville visits Syracuse for the first time with both being members of the ACC. Since all four programs figure to be contenders for the league crown, those two games could go a long way toward shaping the conference race. Other dates to circle: Louisville at Wake Forest on Jan. 4 in the ACC opener for the…
  • Drew Eubanks' commitment could be start of a huge class for Oregon State

    27 Aug 2014 | 8:22 am
    With all five starters from last year's underachieving 16-16 team having left and few promising bench players ready to inherit more playing time, Oregon State appears headed for a poor 2014-15 season Rest assured, however, better days may be ahead. New coach Wayne Tinkle secured a key commitment Tuesday from 6-foot-10 Drew Eubanks, arguably the top Class of 2015 prospect in the state of Oregon. The addition of the three-star center gives Oregon State a chance to assemble a formidable class given the ties the Beavers have to a pair of other top prospects. Tres Tinkle, the son of the older…

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

    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…

The database includes 4250 players listed alphabetically by team and then last name, and you can enter edits for missed players, etc.Focusing purely on the Value Add's in the Big East, the picture would appear pretty bleak. Marquette had the 101st best Value Add in the country last year and 7th best in the conference. The projections give Marquette the 93rd best Value Add this season (ahead of only DePaul) and Creighton) and then 94th next season (ahead of St. John's,…

Junior shooting guard Rasheed Sulaimon will be looked upon to carry the scoring load and stretch a defense from the perimeter. Amile…

    In 1964 legendary John Wooden won his first of many NCAA Championships while coaching at UCLA and a couple of years later published an extremely detailed book called "Practical Modern Basketball" that became an instant coaching classic. What's amazing to me is that even though the game has changed in many ways in the last 50 years (terminology, shot clock, 3 point line, better athletes, etc.) some things are exactly the same! For example, in his chapter on Individual Offense, Coach Wooden states that "Entirely too many players have a tendency to fancy themselves as dribblers when in reality…

    Believe it or not there once was a time when each team, and its players, had one basketball coach and one coach only. That one coach was responsible for teaching each player how to improve his skills, organizing practice, conditioning the team, deciding which offenses and defenses to use, and managing the entire game (substitutions, timeouts, foul trouble, strategic adjustments, etc.) all by himself. Today's game is absolutely entirely different. Every team has a bench full of coaches and many players have their own shooting coach, strength and conditioning coach, ball handling coach, mental…
