    North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams said Friday night it's a ''very sad time'' at the school after an investigation found widespread academic fraud and adds that his program ''thought we were doing the right thing.'' After his team's exhibition victory, Williams spoke for the first time in response to a report released Wednesday that outlined how fraud ran unchecked in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department for nearly two decades.

More than 3,100 students - about half of them athletes - benefited from sham classes and artificially high grades in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department (AFAM) in Chapel Hill. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein indicates that the bogus classes ended in 2011. The NCAA, which has reopened its investigation into academic misconduct, could also have…

    There are 337 Division 1 college basketball coaches in the country. Then there’s Tom Izzo. And at Michigan State basketball’s 2014 Midnight Madness event, in an attempt to stay true to his usual hi-jinks, the 20th-year head coach of the Spartans entered the Breslin Center playing the accordion as a member of KISS! Well … not exactly. Here’s what the scene looked like: Izzo dressed and playing as a member of the rock band KISS. The band turned out to be a cover band called War Machine. Turns out the band was actually a Detroit-based cover band called War Machine. “Well … I don’t…

The legendary MSU head coach has become famous in recent years for having some fun with his entrances to MSU’s Midnight Madness event. In fact, his entrance has become more meaningful than what happens on the court with the actual team.

  • Tom Izzo hilariously lists out MSU’s bizarre, freakish injuries

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:49 am
    Tom Izzo has seen some of his Michigan State Spartans underachieve, overachieve and everything in between. Often in the same season. One of the few reasons he’s earned the nickname “Mr. March” is because his teams often struggle in midseason and/or start slowly. Last year’s Spartans had an 18-1 start to the season, the best in school history. They looked like a national champion. However, Sparty then had a brutal 5-7 stretch over from January 25th to March 9th. February was not kind. The 2013-14 Spartans didn’t gel again until the Big Ten Tournament; when they indeed put on an…

Here's a look at our No. 6 league, the American Athletic Conference. The title race in the American Athletic Conference this winter isn't likely to inspire much nostalgia or dredge up lingering hostilities. Not once in the previous 48 years had the two clear-cut favorites even played one-another before they renewed acquaintances in the AAC's debut season last year. In one corner is tradition-rich defending national champion UConn, which landed in the AAC last year…

    Since Syracuse is a private institution under no obligation to reveal information it would prefer to keep quiet, the school has chosen to stay silent regarding the NCAA investigation into its football and men's basketball programs. Even so, some pertinent details are still beginning to trickle out. The scope of the investigation dates back about 10 years and includes allegations involving extra benefits and academic violations, ESPN.com reported Thursday night. The most serious alleged violations involve the men's basketball program, according to the report. Syracuse will appear in front of…

Besides, the brown suit was free, compliments of the old Kuppenheimer Classic held annually in Atlanta.

  • College Basketball: Big Ten Conference Preview

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:30 pm
    NetScouts Basketball continues our college basketball previews with the Big Ten conference. 1. Wisconsin: The clear favorite in the conference and a candidate to make another Final Four run, Wisconsin loses only one major contributor from last year’s squad in Ben Brust. Frank Kaminsky is one of the biggest mismatches in the country as a 7-footer who can step out to the three-point line while Sam Dekker is a physically imposing wing. Traevon Jackson and Josh Gasser started every game last season alongside Kaminsky and Dekker and should remain steady backcourt players. Sophomore Nigel Hayes…
  • Ten American Athletic Conference Prospects to Watch

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:17 am
    As NetScouts Basketball continues our college basketball previews, here’s our list of ten prospects to watch from the American Athletic Conference (AAC). Ryan Boatright, Connecticut: The ultra quick guard was a nice compliment to Shabazz Napier in the backcourt last season, but will see an expanded role as a senior. Boatright is a fierce competitor who compensates for his 6-foot size with a fearless attitude. He’s an effective defender who can force turnovers while locking down the perimeter. Boatright is a solid shooter who can play in the pick-and-roll, but it will be interesting to…

    We continue our series of college basketball conference previews with our overview of the American Athletic Conference (AAC). 1. SMU: This team looked like a national title contender when elite five-star combo guard Emmanuel Mudiay committed to the Mustangs, but he announced this summer that he would instead play overseas in China. Nonetheless, this will be a talented and deep squad that enters as slight favorites to win the AAC. Last year’s inside-out duo of point guard Nic Moore and Markus Kennedy return as the leading scorer and rebounder from last season’s team, respectively. Former…
  • Ten NBA Prospects to Watch in the SEC

    Carl Berman
    9 Oct 2014 | 11:06 am
    Willie Cauley-Stein, Kentucky: Athletic, 7-foot shot blockers are tough to find, but Cauley-Stein certainly fits the description. He was expected to be a first round pick last season, but returned for his junior year and could potentially become a lottery candidate. Cauley-Stein runs the floor with ease and can protect the rim due to his size, length, and bounce. This year, he’ll look to add some low post moves to compliment his raw athleticism. As a true testament to his athleticism, Cauley-Stein was a wide receiver in high school. Aaron Harrison, Kentucky: Harrison had multiple clutch…
  • College Basketball: Kentucky Wildcats Top Pick in SEC

    Carl Berman
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:16 pm
    1. Kentucky: Kentucky certainly has the most talented roster in the country and should open the season as the top ranked team. Sophomore twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison return as fringe first round guards along with the athletic 7-foot junior Willie Cauley-Stein. Sophomore centers Marcus Lee and Dakari Johnson are also former McDonald’s All-Americans who will be make for a giant frontcourt. With three returning centers, Alex Poythress could be an X-Factor as one of the few wing defenders on the roster. In true John Calipari fashion, the Wildcats also signed four five-stars in Trey Lyles,…

  • The Secret to Consistent Shooting

    22 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    The secret to shooting consistently is simply consistent shooting! (You didn't really think there was a "secret" did you?) Actually, that's not entirely true. I should say the secret to consistently shooting WELL is consistent shooting. If you want to shoot consistently BAD then there isn't really anything you need to do! I hear players complain all the time about how they just can't put the ball in the basket, that their release doesn't feel right, how they have absolutely no control of the ball and how their shot is completely broke. So what do many of them do? They go to the gym and shoot…
  • How to Handle Cutting Players During Tryouts

    16 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    Of all the unpleasant tasks that basketball coach's face, telling a player that he has been cut from the squad is perhaps the toughest. Many coaches have become pretty creative over the years while looking for a way to break the news as gently as possible while others still post a list on the locker room bulletin board and call it good. I don't know which is the best way to break the news to a young man who has his heart set on making the team, but I do have four suggestions to make the whole process a little less painful. 1. Prepare players and parents beforehand Before you start your tryout…
  • 9 Ways to Impress Your Coach & Make the Team

    7 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    I'm assuming you already have at least a little bit of talent and that you work hard. However, whether you are a role player looking to get more minutes, an established "star" looking to get to the next level, or just looking to impress the coach during tryouts, here are 9 things you can do to help accomplish your goal. 1. Play with Passion Most basketball coaches love the game (that's why they coach!) and they want to be around players who love it too. Enthusiasm, attitude, and competitiveness are all contagious. Encourage everyone on the court - even those who are going after your spot. Do…

Let's see who they were and how they faired over the weekend. PART 1: Brandon Thomas-…
  • 2016 Rankings Update: Giles Reclaims Top Spot

    7 Oct 2014 | 8:37 am
    by Brian Flinn In a class that has a lot of star power and a lot of depth, ranking the 2016 class was no easy task. With a number of new players joining the rankings, as well as some making significant jumps, it is clear to see that these rankings are far from finished. After having a strong summer showing coming off an injury, Harry Giles has taken back his spot at the top of the rankings. Following Giles is talented forward Thon Maker, and a trio of wings in Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum, and Malik Monk.  All five players…
  • Future150 Birmingham Camp: Top 40 All-Stars

    30 Sep 2014 | 10:06 am
    by Eric Hampford The Future150 Birmingham Camp Top 40 All-Star game proved to have some young firepower, with several young prospects taking center stage. Here is a look at twenty of the most talented prospects from the entire camp. Kedrick Simmons, 2016 PF, Robert E. Lee (AL): One thing the Robert E. Lee (AL) product has that many others don't, is size. At 6-foot-8, the power forward is long and has good shot-blocking ability. It will be interesting to see if his offensive game comes around. Devon Benson, 2016 PF, Laurel (MS): At 6-foot-6 and strong as a bull, the Laurel (MS)…

  • Basketball Food Journal – Keep One & Get Ahead In The Game!

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Basketball Food Journal – What is That? A basketball food journal, also known as a food log or food diary, is a daily form that serious players in basketball training use to track your nutrition intake over a set period of time. I believe that all basketball players should keep a daily food journal for at least 2 weeks out of every month, if not just making it an ongoing part of their basketball nutrition strategy. Keeping a food journal is fairly simple, yet does require an increased commitment to logging everything that you eat and drink for a set period of time.  You can choose to…
