    Not even one week after elite point guard Emmanuel Mudiay opted to turn pro instead of enrolling at SMU, another promising recruit has parted ways with the Mustangs without ever playing in a game. Matt McQuaid, one of the class of 2015's best shooters, has backed out of his May commitment to SMU and reopened his recruitment, Evan Daniels of Scout.com first reported. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Duncanville, Texas is rated Rivals.com's No. 87 recruit and holds offers from Creighton, Oklahoma, Alabama, Texas and Baylor, among others. If the departure of Mudiay was a blow to SMU's chances of…

''You just have to worry about making the right play and playing defense at all times,'' Pinson said. ''That's Basketball 101, basically.'' Pinson joins fellow McDonald's All-Americans Joel Berry at point guard and swingman Justin Jackson in a touted recruiting class.

  • VCU Basketball: Expectations for the 2014-15 season

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:39 pm
    VCU’s loss in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last season left fans with a bad taste in their mouth. Expectations for the 2014-15 season, within the A-10, may be a little more on VCU’s side this time. The A-10 was stacked last season with many talented teams which made in-conference games all the more important. Six A-10 teams made it to the NCAA Tournament with 5 of those teams receiving at-large bids. This season, the A-10 still has many talented teams, but it looks to be just a little less than last season with many players graduating and team dynamics changing. JeQuan Lewis…

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:30 am
    MADISON, Wis. -- Josh Gasser isn't so much reinventing his game as he is reinvigorating it. And for a fifth-year senior who already is considered among the most respected basketball players in the Big Ten, it means his final season at Wisconsin very well could be his best. At least, that's the hope from Gasser, whose renewed mobility has provided him with added confidence nearly two years removed from a devastating ACL injury to his left knee that sidelined him for a full season. Gone now, for the first time, is the bulky knee brace that hindered his movement a year ago in his comeback…

The professional players come back to campus during the offseason to work out with their college trainers and practice against the team’s current athletes. When pickup games occur, it’s something to watch; though, due to these games often taking place in a dimly lit arena with no crowd, rarely is anyone lucky enough to view…
  • Mailbag: Zak Irvin’s progression, Age, Defense

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:15 am
    Dustin Johnston @zgordon5: What does Zak Irvin specifically need to work on the most to become “more than just a shooter”? Did he show that potential in HS? I guess more clearly: should we have a lot of optimism about Zak being able to truly be more than a shooter, or are there red flags? We’ve established that Irvin was ‘just a shooter’ last year after roughly three out of every four shots he took were threes. I have no doubt that Zak can and will do more than just shoot threes last season, but I’m not ready to predict a Nik Stauskas-level improvement. That’s not meant to be a…

    When Memphis coach Josh Pastner announced the hiring of a new assistant on Wednesday afternoon, he explained his choice by praising Keelon Lawson as a "great fit" for the job.  Of course, absent from the press release was why Lawson is such a "great fit." Yes, Lawson is a former player at UAB and LeMoyne-Owen. Yes, he coached Hamilton High to a trio of Tennessee state playoff appearances in the past decade and to the 2006 state title. But the biggest reason Lawson is an appealing candidate for Memphis is because he is the father of four promising basketball prospects.  K.J. Lawson, a…

As long as that moped remains in Jok's possession, he remains in jeopardy of becoming the first college basketball player ever to jeopardize his career because of his love for a low-powered motorbike.  Iowa suspended Jok indefinitely on Tuesday evening after his second moped-related arrest this offseason.

    Since the nation's top point guard prospect revealed Monday that he was backing out of his letter of intent to go to SMU and heading overseas to play professionally, there has been a fair amount of discussion over whether Emmanuel Mudiay could become a trend setter. The only way that has any chance of happening is if the McDonald's All-American fares far better than those who have previously attempted such a move. The first player to bypass college to play professionally in Europe was Brandon Jennings, the top-rated point guard in the class of 2008. Rather than continue to struggle to achieve…

Only the Georgetown duo of Otto Porter and Hollis Thompson, as well as Creighton's Doug McDermott ranked higher.Using Buycks as an example, the formula is based on game averages of 19.7 points + 2.3 rebounds +4.3 assists + (2 X 0.7 steals) + (2 X 0 blocked shots) - 12.6 points allowed - 7.3 shots missed = 7.75 rating.

    Two years after FIVE Marquette players played in the NBA in the same season, Marquette had FIVE players play in the NBA PLAYOFFS in one weekend including three starters and Jae Crowder, who had a +16 in just 12 minutes to help the Mavs almost upset the Spurs.Marquette set a record for players in the NBA for the third straight year. For all the glory days of the past, the fact is Marquette never had more than three players in the NBA until Chris Crawford joined Tony Smith, Amal McCaskill and Jim McIlvaine to make it four in 1998, and then never topped that figure until FIVE played in the NBA.

Paired against Seattle University standout Isiah Umipig, the Washington sophomore guard finished with 12 points, including two three-pointers while leading his team to a 93-80 win. It was a nice showing for both guards. Taylor (5-11 and 175 pounds) had difficulty eluding the bigger Umipig (6-0, 195), who kept him out of the lane. The referees allowed for more bumping and hand-checking than what you'd see in a NCAA game, which didn't help Taylor. Unofficially he had four assists. Aside from the three-pointers,…

    Release Rotation

  • Why Release Rotation?

    John Snyder
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:24 pm
    "Release... Rotation... Splash..."This was one of my favorite catchphrases on Sportscenter when I was growing up. This phrase was popularized by Craig Kilborn. You would usually hear this on a 3-point highlight. Or when a golfer would hit a ball into the water.I always thought it was simple and to the point. Which is also how I hope each one of my posts end up.

He averaged 18.0 points per game while shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 12-of-27 (44.4%) from three-point range.

    Las Vegas, NV – Here’s our look at the top ten non-rookie performers from the recently completed Las Vegas NBA Summer League. 1. Glen Rice Jr., Washington Wizards: Rice Jr. was named the MVP of the Las Vegas Summer League after leading the event in scoring. He averaged 25 points and 7.8 rebounds per game for Washington after a lackluster rookie season. After playing in only 11 games as a rookie, Rice Jr. played with a chip on his shoulder and now looks ready to contribute as a bench scorer. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard is a quality three-point shooter and eclipsed the 20-point mark…

  • Tennis Ball Drills That Will Improve Your Ball Handling Skills

    16 Jul 2014 | 11:00 am
    During the offseason I hear from a lot of players who ask me, "What should I be working on in order to get more playing time next season?" or "What should I be working on to take my game to another level?" While every player is certainly different and has certain skills that they as individuals needs to develop or strengthen, my response to them will always include one common factor - improving their ability to handle and control the basketball. Great ball handlers possess three primary skills: 1. They can change speeds -whether that is from slow to fast or from fast to super fast the…
  • Why NBA Teams Don’t Run Motion Offense

    9 Jul 2014 | 11:00 am
    There might not be a more overused term in the entire game of basketball than "motion offense." Not only is it overused but it is also grossly misunderstood by many fans, players, and even coaches. Part of the confusion lies in the fact that a simple internet search of "motion offense" will return links featuring 5 Out Motion, 4 Out 1 In Motion, 3 Out 2 In Motion, and 2 Out 3 In Motion. There are also sub categories of motion offense. For example, when it comes to running a 5 Out motion offense I have specific notes that I've collected from other coaches on a pass and cut motion, a screening…

  • Jefferson May Be Biggest Wildcard in 2015

    23 Jul 2014 | 7:44 am
    by Derek Piper Four-star 2015 point guard and Milwaukee native Damontrae Jefferson is simply one of a kind. In the world of advanced scouting and analysis, we’re always looking for a comparison: whether it’s one prospect to another (Diamond Stone and Elijah Thomas) or a prospect to the finished product (Jalen Coleman and Jamal Crawford). But good look finding another player like Jefferson, a 5’7” lightning rod of excitement and swagger on the hardwood. He isn’t your typical…well…anything.

    by Brian Flinn Sunday was the close of the 2014 EYBL season, and it didn’t disappoint. With two great 17U semi-finals, a 16U title game that went to OT, and a 17U title game that came down to the wire, the season ended in style. Ultimately it was the Arkansas Wings who took home the 16U crown, while the NJ Playaz emerged victorious in the 17U bracket. Here are a few of the players who stood out, either for their title winning teams, or squads that ultimately fell short. Isaiah Briscoe, 2015 CG, NJ Playaz: It was clear throughout Peach Jam that Briscoe was here for one reason and one…

After a mediocre junior season at Simeon—averaging 10 points, six rebounds and four assists—things have really begun to click for Williams, who has as much high-end potential as anyone in the state of Illinois. There’s more of a spark or hunger to his game, which he said originated after his team’s loss to Whitney Young in the sectional semifinals last season. It’s a game that still lingers in the back of his mind, but he uses it…

    Choosing Healthy Carbohydrates for Optimal Basketball Performance  There is a lot of controversy over carbohydrates floating around the internet these days.  While some diets recommend that you go as low carb as possible, others simply recommend that you switch to focusing on what kind of carbohydrates you are consuming. Basketball players certainly need carbohydrates because of all the energy expended during workouts, practices and games. I like to think of carbohydrates like the gas in a car – without it, you aren’t getting anywhere very quickly right?  So, when it comes to…

    Water is the most important source of life on Earth.  You can survive more than three weeks without food, but water is a completely different story.  It would only take about three days for you to perish without this precious life source. It’s not surprising that we must have to water to sustain life considering that the average adult is made up of about 57% water.  As expected, the need to maintain adequate hydration becomes much greater in conditions of extreme heat and intense physical exercise like basketball. When your body starts to heat up during basketball practice or a game, the…
