Javon Bess and the Spartans were in disbelief following the loss to Texas Southern The Spartans were cold all night and came up short against 1-8 Texas Southern at the Breslin Center.

    The Marquette Golden Eagles had arguably their best week of the season this week, going 2-0 with wins over Arizona State and Alabama A&M, both at home. Marquette dominated both games, leading Arizona State by 15+ for a majority of the game before getting sloppy late and giving up garbage points. The big story of the week wasn’t the wins though, it was the debut of sophomore transfer center, Luke Fischer. Fischer averaged 20.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 3 blocks in his two games, leading Marquette in all three categories. Fischer didn’t start in either game, but played 33 minutes against…

    Jeff Eisenberg
    20 Dec 2014 | 9:32 pm
    DATE: Saturday, Dec. 20 A- — Washington It's time to start including Washington when listing the best teams in the West. The 16th-ranked Huskies proved they belong in the group just behind Arizona and Gonzaga on Saturday when they withstood a valiant comeback from 15th-ranked Oklahoma and emerged with a 69-67 neutral-court victory. Washington's win improved the Huskies to 10-0 with victories over San Diego State, UTEP and Oklahoma. That's an impressive enough resume for Washington to stake its claim to the title of biggest threat to Arizona in the Pac-12 and to feel good about its chances…
  • Kentucky holds overmatched UCLA to seven first-half points

    Jeff Eisenberg
    20 Dec 2014 | 3:09 pm
    All the pregame talk regarding the impact of UCLA's lack of depth sure seems pretty silly now. The Bruins couldn't stay competitive against top-ranked Kentucky through the first TV timeout, let alone long enough for their starting five to get worn down. The top-ranked Wildcats throttled UCLA 83-44 Saturday in Chicago in a game that was even more lopsided than the margin of victory indicated. Kentucky led 24-0 before surrendering a point, 41-7 at halftime and 43-7 before the overmatched Bruins finally reached double figures. UCLA's seven first-half points were the least it has ever scored in a…
  • Rayvonte Rice gives Illinois win over Missouri with buzzer-beater

    20 Dec 2014 | 2:28 pm
    Missouri couldn't have done a better job defending in the final seconds of the anual Braggin Rights game against Illinois, but Illini senior Rayvonte Rice needed only a sliver of space to fire the game-winner. Rice found himself with the ball near the top of the arc with time winding down.. He fired a step-back 3-pointer that found the nylon as time expired giving Illinois a 62-59 victory over the struggling Tigers in St. Louis. It was only the eighth time in the history of the series that both teams came into the game unranked. It was a nice moment of Rice, who grew up in Champagne but first…
  • Improbable comeback keeps Villanova undefeated

    As Ryan Arcidiacono fumbled his dribble along the left sideline with less than 15 seconds remaining and Villanova trailing Syracuse by five, it was difficult to envision a scenario in which the Wildcats could come back to win. What happened next defied imagination. Seventh-ranked Villanova forced overtime against all odds and emerged with an 82-77 overtime victory that the Wildcats will talk about for years and the Orange will do their best to forget. Arcidiacono regained his dribble and spotted a wide-open Josh Hart spotted up on the left wing. Hart buried a 3-pointer to trim the lead to…

    Zak Irvin did more than just cut Michigan's deficit to one Saturday afternoon against SMU when he sank a corner 3-pointer late in the first half. The sophomore wing also coaxed a smile out his teary-eyed younger sister TV cameras caught eighth grader Tayah Irvin bawling in the stands after her older brother was undercut by SMU's Keith Frazier as he rose for a layup off a nice backdoor feed from Ricky Doyle. Zak Irvin crashed hard to the ground back-first and pounded his fist on the court in pain for several seconds before rising gingerly to his feet.  Scary as the fall looked when it…

    20 Dec 2014 | 10:15 am
    Duke came into this game with a 9-0 record and ranked #2 in the country. Meanwhile Uconn was 4-3 and unranked, but many people forget that two of those losses were on a three pointer at the end. If those shots don’t go in, Uconn would be 6-1 and have a win over Texas who is currently ranked #9. It was a great atmosphere with about a split 50/50 crowd at Madison Square Garden, this game had an NCAA tournament feel to it. Duke jumped out to a 9-4 lead early in the game. It stayed around a seven point lead for the Blue Devils in most of the first half. Duke was trying to get a comfortable…

    Justin Simon of the Brewster Academy is the fifth-ranked point guard in the class of 2015, and for good reason. He added another reason Friday night when he went up for a nasty one-handed alley-oop off a backdoor cut. He knew it was a good one too, just look at the pose afterward. The Brewster Academy is in California so the second best player in the state and 27th ranked prospect in the ESPN100 won’t be going too far to play his collegiate ball as an Arizona Wildcat.

    19 Dec 2014 | 8:21 am
    Well to say the Luke Fischer era at Marquette got off to a fast start would be the least earth shattering news of this week. We jump right into the Luke story line and discuss our first impressions, what we liked, and what this might mean for this Marquette team. Be warned, we are pretty enthusiastic for Luke's future. We talk about the ASU game overall and then transition into a brief conversation on last weeks less than awesome transfer news. With the transfers, that leaves 3 open scholarships. As anonymous internet podcasters, we had to tell Wojo what he should do with those scholarships.

    17 Dec 2014 | 10:07 pm
    How good was Luke Fischer's first game for Marquette? Simple, based on tempo free stats he is clearly the Player of the Year in the Country.Defense - Fischer is the top defensive player in the country based on tempo free stats:Blocked Shots (3rd nationally) - Fischer blocked 17.7% of Arizona State's shots in his debut. That is the third best season total in the country.Defensive Rebounding (5th) - Fischer grabbed 31.4% of all the shots Arizona State missed. That is the fifth best figure in the country - interestingly Cinmeon Bowers of Auburn is second in the country at 34.9%Team Defensive…
  • Can Fischer stop MU opponents from scoring 73.2% of trips?

    16 Dec 2014 | 3:06 pm
    We covered the challenge Luke Fischer faces against Arizona State's front court in his first appearance. Not only does ASU have a duo at forward that can each put up 20/10 numbers, but MU without Fischer has been in the bottom 25 of all 351 teams in three categories - blocked shots (5.1%), 2-point attempts (55.8% allowed) and defensive rebounds (allowed 40.1% offensive rebounds).

The Huskies improved to 10-0 and remain one of nine unbeaten teams in the nation. Here's a few thoughts. Jernard Jarreau delivers - Oklahoma was intent on not giving up easy buckets inside and elected a strategy in which forward TaShawn Thomas backed off Jarreau at the top of the key to defend Robert Upshaw and Shawn Kemp Jr. inside.

    Eugene, OR – The Oregon Ducks continued their tune-up games leading up to the Pac-12 schedule. Today the Delaware State Hornets came to town. The Hornets came off a 72-64 win over St. Francis (NY) in which their 6’3 guard Amere May poured in an NCAA individual season-high 48 points. We viewed the Hornets last weekend in a 83-44 loss to Rhode Island. That wasn’t pretty. Oregon started off strongly for a change, pulling out to a 16-3 lead. Delaware State hung in through most of the first half which ended with a 38-27 Oregon lead. The Ducks held a double-figure lead for much of the…
  • Red Storm Rally Overtakes Gaels in Second Half

    Queens, NY – It was a classic tale of two halves last night at Carnesecca Arena on the campus of No. 20 ranked St John’s as the Red Storm played host to the St Mary’s Gaels from the WCC. Unfortunately for the Red Storm they did not play like a ranked team for the first 20 minutes. The Gaels were led by 6-10 senior forward Brad Waldow, who finished with a game high 26 points, primarily from point blank range. St. Mary’s repeatedly passed the ball inside against SJU’s defense, took an early lead and established control of the boards on both ends. St John’s could…

    East Rutherford, NJ – The touted Duke freshmen were on full display Thursday night, leading the Blue Devils to a 66-56 win over Connecticut. The trio of Tyus Jones, Jahlil Okafor, and Justise Winslow combined for 45 points, 19 rebounds, and seven assists in the win. Jones led the way with 21 points, six rebounds, and three assists on 5-of-11 shooting. The 6-foot-1 point guard was aggressive when attacking the rim and a confident shooter when left open. He was 2-of-6 from three-point range and 9-of-10 from the free throw line. While Jones isn’t the most athletic point guard, he’s a…

    Corvallis, OR – The Oregon State Beavers (8-2), looking much better than anyone anticipated, destroyed a decent DePaul (6-4) team 90-59. Victor Robbins, coming off a career-high 22 points in the lopsided win over Grambling, continued his hot hand leading the Beavers with 27 points, another career-high. 6’10 Olaf Schaftenaar added 21 points and six rebounds while Gary Payton II continued to stuff the stat sheet with 15 points, seven rebounds, five assists, five steals and two blocked shots while committing zero turnovers in 35 minutes of play. Oregon State had a +11 rebounding…

  • Which Defense is Best?

    17 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    When deciding which defense is best for your team there are three things to take into consideration: your personnel, your overall philosophy and style of play, and your opponent's personnel. Let's take a look at each one. 1. Personnel When evaluating the personnel of your own team there are again three things to consider: athleticism, size, and depth. Athleticism. If as a group your players have above average athleticism (speed, quickness, agility, and jumping ability) then you can pretty much play any defense you desire. Not only can you play either man to man or zone but you can also use a…
  • 5 Reasons You Need to Develop Great Practice Habits

    10 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    1. There are no shortcuts to the top. Jordan, Magic, Bird, LeBron, Kobe, KD, Karl Malone, Tim Duncan, Ray Allen, are all arguably some of the greatest names in the history of the NBA. I don't think it's a coincidence that they also have the reputation of being the game's hardest workers. Height, length, and athleticism might be enough to get you by when you are younger but if you want to play at higher levels then you need to be more skilled and as far as I know the only way to develop great skills sets is through many, many hours of purposeful practice. 2. Practicing hard is not enough. You…
  • Concussion Training for Basketball Players and Coaches

    9 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    It used to be that the only injury a basketball player really had to worry about was a sprained ankle. Sure, there was the occasional fat lip or split eyebrow caused by a flying elbow but sprained ankles were by far the biggest worry in terms of injury. However, as players have become bigger, stronger, and quicker there have been drastic increases in knee and head injuries at all levels of play. When a knee is injured it is fairly obvious to almost everyone in the gym and the athlete is usually cooperative when the coaching steps in to intervene. Unfortunately, that is not the case with…

  • Hilliard Davidson outlasts Upper Arlington

    20 Dec 2014 | 9:39 am
    by Jason MorrowWith the spotlight on the newly renamed Jim Hamilton Court, the Upper Arlington Golden Bears were primed for a big home win as they hosted OCC-Central rival Hilliard Davidson. That was all for naught, as the Wildcats pulled off an impressive road victory, stifling Upper Arlington 41-38 on Friday night. 2016 guard Max Huber led a balanced effort for Davidson, finishing with a team-high 11 points and four rebounds. Ohio State-commit Dane Goodwin had game-high 15 points for the Golden Bears, 9 of which came on his three triples. The Wildcats trailed all the way throughout the…
  • The Countdown: Dublin Jerome 63, Centennial 54

    19 Dec 2014 | 11:12 am
    by Jason MorrowFour Facts: Centennial was able to keep Thursday night’s game close in the early going thanks to their strong pressure defense. That was a big reason for the solid start, and big second-half run that cut a once 18-point lead to just four late in the fourth. There was a big box score in the newspaper on Friday morning from this game, and that definitely reiterated the fact that this game was a full team effort on both sides. Centennial had eight players score, six of which had multiple field goals. Dublin Jerome had three in double figures, and seven players score in…
  • Dublin Jerome survives Centennial

    18 Dec 2014 | 7:50 pm
    by Jason MorrowAlthough it was not played on a traditional night for basketball, those in attendance at Dublin Jerome on Thursday got their money's worth in a great non-conference game. The Celtics used a big 17-6 second quarter to open up a double-digit halftime lead on visiting Centennial, and held on down the stretch to knock off the Stars 63-54 on Thursday night. 2016 forward Colton Irion had 13 of his game-high 19 points in a first half that saw Dublin Jerome (4-0, 2-0 OCC-Cardinal) lead by 14 at halftime. The Stars were led by 2015 forward Joe Thomas, who had a team-high 18 points…
  • Big 12 Commits: Texas

    18 Dec 2014 | 11:57 am
    by Ani UmanaPart four is here and lets take a look at Texas early commits. Having two guards commit to being Longhorns next fall, as shooting guard Eric Davis and point guard Kerwin Roach Jr. hope to make a impact for Texas during their time in Austin. Davis is a tremendous scorer that gets buckets off the dribble, catch and shoot situations, and is good at attacking the basket. He is a versatile offensive player and plays solid defense also. He is a little small for my liking at shooting guard, but will do fine next year. I would like for him to play more point guard and see if he can get…
  • Andrew Stafford, Haltom High School, 6’7, PF, 2015

    16 Dec 2014 | 6:42 am
    by BJ JohnsonHistorically, the Haltom High Buffaloes boys basketball team has been the red-headed step child. Haltom is located in suburban Fort Worth. When people think of high school basketball teams in Fort Worth the names Dunbar and Nolan are the two that come to mind. This has been the case for years. In this third year, Head Coach Todd Shelton has the athletes, the size, and the ability to change that perception. With the realignment of classifications in the state of Texas, Haltom has moved up to 6A district 7, matching them up with bigger suburban teams that are notoriously known for…
