  • Chris Walker's sad tale is unlikely to have a happy ending

    Jeff Eisenberg
    24 Apr 2015 | 1:01 pm
    The steep decline of Chris Walker reached its nadir Friday afternoon. It was then that the onetime top 10 recruit announced he's leaving Florida and declaring for the NBA draft despite having virtually no chance of being selected.  In two tumultuous seasons at Florida, Walker delivered occasional flashes of athletic potential but never came close to blossoming into an impact player. The 6-foot-10 forward didn't become eligible until early February as a freshman and played sparingly off the bench for a Final Four-bound Florida team, averaging 1.9 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. He made…

    Six months before he coaches his first game at Mississippi State, Ben Howland has already achieved a meaningful victory. The first-year coach landed a commitment Friday from elite scoring guard Malik Newman, Rivals.com's No. 8 prospect in the class of 2015. The son of former Mississippi State forward Horatio Webster chose the Bulldogs over a long list of more high-profile programs including Kentucky, Kansas, LSU and North Carolina State. That Howland was able to land Newman is especially impressive considering he took over at Mississippi State less than a month ago. The hire forced Newman to…

    How high expectations will be for Oklahoma next season always largely depended on whether Buddy Hield returned to school. The Sooners still could have contended for an NCAA tournament bid had Hield turned pro, but they have a chance to accomplish something far more memorable now that the reigning Big 12 player of the year has announced he'll be back for his senior season. Oklahoma will likely begin next season in the top 10 in the polls thanks to the return of four starters from last season's 24-win Sweet 16 team.

Point guard Tyrone Wallace revealed he will return for his senior season after flirting with declaring for the NBA draft for most of the past month. Wallace emerged as a potential second-round pick last season when he averaged 17.1, 7.1 rebounds and 4.0 assists in his first year playing point guard. Staying in school gives the long, athletic 6-foot-5 guard a chance to cut down his turnovers, improve his 31 percent 3-point shooting and fulfill a promise…

    23 Apr 2015 | 8:48 am
    The most prized graduate transfer on the market will join a program that desperately needs a scorer of his caliber. Former Drexel wing Damion Lee announced Thursday that he has committed to Louisville, providing a jolt of offense to a Cardinals team trying to overcome the loss of 82 percent of its scoring from this past season's 27-win campaign.  Lee received offers from the likes of Arizona, Gonzaga, Maryland and Marquette because he was one of the few transfers who were both immediately eligible and capable of making a real impact. The 6-foot-6 rising senior averaged 21.4 points per game…

            I live in a Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. It is a lower income city, in the northeastern  part of the state. We are about 15 minutes from Scranton and about 90 minutes from Philadelphia. At one point it used to be a nice place to live but over the years it has become crime ridden. In fact it is number 18 on the list of top murder cities, did I say that right. Everyday the drug use and crime seems to sucking up another kid and spit them out. There isn’t an inexpensive   place for a kid to play and learn fundamentals in a sport. The…

  • Shoot, MU Projects 78th after not getting either Senior Guard, but remember 2010

    24 Apr 2015 | 12:57 am
    Well shoot. Damion Lee to Louisville and Shonn Miller to UConn leaves Marquette ranked 78th at www.valueaddbasketball.com, where we now have all JUCOs projected as well. I am just going to hope this is way off, and the NBC Sports Top 25 released recently is correct with Marquette at 21st.It seemed to me one of the two senior guards were crucial not only because their impact 8.13 and 5.6 respectively - enough that either theoretically gets MU in the tournament. But also with Steve Taylor gone it would be very nice to have a senior step on the court.Projections just measure the typical…
  • Best/Worst Case For Each Big East Team Based on leaving for NBA, graduate signings

    18 Apr 2015 | 6:55 pm
    Following up on some good feedback from MUScoop on where teams rank if players turn go NBA, here is the updated best and worst case based on Value Add projections for each team. The database will start to be updated with all 4000 players projections soon and you will be able to click here, but I am working through a programming issue.Big East Best/Worst Case Nat'l RankVillanova              1st at 46.75Xavier   26th at 32.2Georgetown      31st (31.59) with Smith-Rivera back, up to 21st (35.49)…
  • Lee & Miller Would Improve MU from 72nd to 14th Best in Country

    15 Apr 2015 | 2:29 am
    Last year the Value Add projections painted a pretty bleak picture for Marquette that unfortunately played out. I did make reference pre-season to the first losing season since the early 1990s. The good news is Marquette seems to stack up pretty well in the Big East now that I’ve run the projections for all 4000+ players for next year except JUCO players:Big East Projected Value Add 2016Villanova, 46.76Xavier, 32.20Seton Hall, 27.87Marquette, 23.61Georgetown, 21.91DePaul, 20.46Butler, 18.94Creighton, 17.08Providence, 15.27St. John's, 13.63The bad news is that the MU is partly higher because…

    26 Mar 2015 | 12:06 am
    I know many want to just turn the page on last season and look forward to the big class. But with the concerns about the Big East TV ratings and only having one team in the Sweet 16, I wanted to make a couple of notes on the Top 100 Big East players in Value Add. Obviously one issue is that the conference does not have much NBA talent. I was sitting in press row at the Big East tournament while Villanova beating Xavier, and the reporter next to me asked how many of Nova's players would make the NBA. He seemed shocked when I answered that I did not think any of them were NBA-level players…

  • Top Players From The 2015 Portsmouth Invitational

    Carl Berman
    18 Apr 2015 | 11:15 am
    The 63rd annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament was held from April 8th to April 11th. The PIT offers borderline NBA players a unique forum in which to showcase skills which they may not be able to display for the college team whom they play for. This is due to many reasons such as not being able to play a position that they may be better suited for because of the particular needs of their team. We witnessed many shooting guards being thrust into the position of having to run an offense and many power forwards having to play the three. This allows a smaller shooting guard or power forward…

    Portland, OR – It was another jam packed week in Portland attending the Nike Hoop Summit practices and then the game on Saturday afternoon. The World Team edged the USA 103-101 behind 30 points from Jamal Murray (Canada) and 21 points, six rebounds and six blocked shots from Kentucky recruit Skal Labissiere (Haiti). Duke recruit Luke Kennard led the USA with 22 points. The USA had a chance to tie the game or win it in the closing seconds but Kennard’s shot was blocked out of bounds and Allonzo Trier (Arizona) missed a three pointer at the buzzer. LSU recruit Ben Simmons…

    The 63rd annual Portsmouth Invitational Tournament is taking place at the Churchland High School Sports Complex. We’ll be reviewing the top performers of the event. After the first two days here are the players who have impressed us. Traveon Graham (VCU) – Graham was solid and reinforced our belief that he is the top NBA prospect at the PIT. He is a good but not a great athlete. He has superior strength for a 2 or 3. He is a good three point shooter with a nice quick release. Graham can put the ball on the floor and is strong enough to finish at the rim. He has the strength to…

    7 Apr 2015 | 12:16 pm
    Tyus Jones Indianapolis, IN – In a game where Duke freshmen combined to score 60 of the team’s 68 points in the national championship, Tyus Jones led the young squad with 23 points and cold-blooded shots down the stretch. Jones has been named NetScouts Basketball’s NCAA National Championship Player of the Game. The 6-foot-1 point guard poured in 23 points while shooting 7-of-13 from the field, 7-of-7 from the free throw line, and 2-of-3 from three-point range as Duke defeated Wisconsin 68-63. He added five rebounds and just one turnover in a team-high 37 minutes. Jones only had four…

He was 7-of-11 from the field and also added two blocks and two assists in 37 minutes. The 7-foot center was key in the rebounding department against a bigger Kentucky lineup while he was also a mismatch offensively. “We just tried to do whatever we could to…

    Our local high school runs a summer league a couple night a week for all the schools in the county and last summer my daughter and I would always go the gym an hour or so early so she could get in a few extra shots. Every time we got there one of her teammates was already there working with her "skills trainer." After warming up, most of her workouts seemed geared towards breaking down a defender off the move from the top of the key. Between the legs, behind the back, crossover.

  • How to Become a Better Finisher Around the Basket

    15 Apr 2015 | 11:00 am
    The NBA is full of great finishers - guys that all defenses dread playing against because they can get to the rim and make things happen. Guys like Tony Parker, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, John Wall, and Derek Rose are all offensive minded athletes who can not only score at the rim but can create open shots for their teammates and single handedly put the entire opposing team in foul trouble. They are so good at what they do that they make destroying defenses seem simple and effortless. Styling your game after any of these players is a great idea as long as you realize being a great…
  • How to Beat a Zone Defense

    9 Apr 2015 | 11:00 am
    I've said and written this many times before - if you coach a "lower level" basketball team and want to win a lot of games then all you have to do is press and drop back into a half court zone defense. Why? Because younger players and novice coaches (often parents just trying to help out some local kids) just don't know how to counteract those two strategies. If you happen to fall into that category, and even if you don't, here are 7 things you can do to beat a zone defense: 1. Fast break. I list this one first simply because it's my personal favorite. Most defensive guards will sprint back…

    by Andrew ForceShooting is a skill sorely lacking in the current college game.  Too many talented players enter college with inconsistent jump shots cloaked in raw athleticism.  Triston Chambers marries the two as the 6-foot-2 shooting guard proves potent time and time again. After playing 2014 with the Alabama Challenge, Chambers moved over to the Bledsoe Ice. The Ice are a quick, guard-oriented team and Chambers is able to create off the dribble or shoot over defenses.  Chambers is still in the collection process, fitting for this month of April.  The tax season is all…
