    Yes, I get why ESPN is milking this College Football Playoff thing. It is way more entertaining than the BCS ever was. I compare it to when CNBC dominated the financial channels during the 1990′s and early 2000′s.  Everyone was either a Jim Kramer or Maria Bartiromo fan.  But the hardcore fans also got some periodic and great insight from Liz Claman and Melissa Francis.  Fast forward a few years later, and a new business channel actually speaks out Main Street issues and not talking down to viewers in the Fox Business Network.

He writes: "Once again, this was not the showcase of city hoops that many hope this rivalry will become. It was a tough, worthwhile competition. The teams played great defense and exploited each other’s offensive warts. The intensity was worthy of a rivalry.

    PLAYER OF THE GAME: Tough call here. So many candidates. But if Quevyn Winters doesn't carry Washington's offense in the first half with three three-pointers, perhaps the Huskies (2-0) suffer their first loss of the season. He finished with a game-high tying 12 points on 4-for-11 shooting, including 4 of 9 on three-pointers. Winters, 6-5 guard, also had two rebounds and a steal in 21 minutes off the bench. PLAY OF THE GAME: Pick any one of the four dunks by Shawn Kemp Jr. They were all spectacular. TURNING POINT: Washington used a 19-5 run at the start of the second half that turned a 21-20…

Forget the poor perimeter shooting for a minute, the defense was incredible: Coach Lorenzo Romar joked (maybe he wasn't joking) the Huskies played the type of defense he expects during just three games last season. I'm thinking they played well defensively in 4-5 games, but why quibble. The point is, at the start of the season Washington has been absolutely amazing defensively. Friday UW held Seattle University to 28.6 percent shooting (20 of 70) from the field and 14.3 percent (3 of 21) on…

    Eugene, OR – The Oregon Ducks started the more difficult part of their non-conference schedule as the Toledo Rockets came to town. Toledo, a team which won 27 games last season and returned five of their top six scorers, came off a tough loss at nationally-ranked VCU on Tuesday. Oregon showed that they may be better than most expected as they won their third straight game in defeating Toledo 78-68 behind 23 points from Joseph Young, 13 points and 12 rebounds from Elgin Cook and 10 points and 12 boards from Dwayne Benjamin. The Ducks, playing with only eight scholarship players, were crisp…

    Los Angeles, CA – The UCLA Bruins (3-0) dominated at home for the third straight game as they faced the Nicholls St. University Colonels (0-2) in what was their second straight road game to open up the season. UCLA has started off the year on fire with an average margin of victory of 27 points. The Bruins outpaced Nicholls St. from the opening tip and were led offensively by sophomore guard Bryce Alford. With a unique ability to take his opponent off the dribble, rise up for the quick three, or make a scintillating pass to an open teammate, Alford kept Nicholls St. guards Amin Torres and…

    New York, NY - No. 10 Texas topped Iowa while California defeated No. 23 Syracuse in the opening round of the 2K Classic on Thursday evening. We take a look at how some of the top prospects from the event performed. Jabari Bird, Cal: The sophomore showed why he was a former McDonald’s All-American selection. Bird scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting but really made an impression in his 4-of-5 display from three-point range. Two of those makes were from NBA range while he also added a pair of mid-range jumpers. He has plenty of size and athleticism for the shooting guard position at…

    Rochester, MI – The Western Michigan Broncos came into Oakland’s O’rena last night and came away with an 82-71 victory- wasting junior Tommie McCune’s career high 27 point performance.   In what was scripted to be a storybook night on Beat Cancer night, recognizing the life and death of McCune’s mother, Lathrisha, who succumbed to the disease in June, the Broncos shot a sizzling 57 percent from the floor to go to 2-0 on the season and put a slight damper on the evening. McCune, a top 100 player out of Saginaw, MI H.S. in 2011, originally signed with Bob Huggins and West Virginia…

  • Step Back to Get Your Shot Off

    19 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    To understand the concept of creating enough space to get our shot off, it helps if we consider what our defender is trying to accomplish. Most defenders are taught to stay in front of their offensive players and to remain about an arm's length away. This positioning and distance allows the defender to contest any jump shot while still maintaining the space necessary to stop the drive to the rim. Therefore, in order to keep his spacing, the defender must constantly back up and then slide forward so he can maintain his arm's length positioning. When we drive hard at the defender he has no…
  • Coaching Today's Players

    12 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    Have you ever told your team that they should just worry about the things they can control and forget about the things they can’t control? Referees, hostile fans, illness, injury, size & speed of opponents, tournament draws are all out of the players' control so they just need to find a way to deal with them and work around them. Have you ever taught that concept to your players? I'm willing to bet that you have - probably several times! My question to you today is this - are you following your own advice, especially when it comes to the individual personalities of your players, or do some…
  • 5 Phases of an Effective Pick & Roll

    6 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    The pick and roll (PNR) is one of the oldest and most popular plays in the history of basketball and teams that master the skills involved in the pick and roll can become virtually unstoppable. (For an example, go back and watch some video of last season's San Antonio Spurs.) However, there is a huge difference between mastering the required skills and just running through them! There are four main reasons why the pick and roll has been so effective for decades: Creates size and/or speed mismatches Forces two defensive players to defend one offensive player which causes defenses to rotate and…

  • Josh Langford Is Special

    20 Nov 2014 | 11:20 pm
    by Andrew ForceOnly a dozen guys each year have the ability to completely elevate their team to victory. Thursday night Josh Langford proved he is one of those superstar talents in the Class of 2016. Trailing J.O. Johnson High School the entire basketball game, Langford rallied his troops three separate times.  Down 67-63 in the final minute of regulation Langford converted an acrobatic layup and contributed two free throws on the subsequent offensive possession.  After his teammate improbably beat the buzzer off a backdoor feed, Langford braced for more.  “It was a rough…
  • Best Shooters of 2017

    19 Nov 2014 | 10:25 pm
    by Andrew ForceSometimes we forget that shooters made basketball.  Sure dunks exploded its popularity in the 1980’s, but the shooters give it depth.  They round out the game of roundball with range.  The three point line made the game infinitely more complex and interesting.  These are the marksmen to watch in the coming years. The Class of 2017 has some magical shooters.  There might not be a better high school shooter than Mitchell Ballock regardless of class.   Kansas University and Bill Self already offered the volume scorer out of Eudora, Kansas.

Minutes from Arkansas’ campus, Fayetteville High School features two players that should play at the next level.

Today is Baylor, who has three committments, as guards King McClure, Wendell Mitchell and Jake Lindsey have all given their verbal pledge to the Bears. Scott Drew looks to have put the focus on his backcourt with his recent signings. Each guard brings something different to the table. McClure, who plays for Triple A Academy is a power guard that uses his size to get in the paint with…

The shooting guard has transferred to perennial Division I-power Pickerington Central from Athens High School in southern Ohio. “It’s been a huge change but I like it,” Watson told Future150. “The level of competition is a lot higher and its good to go against some of the top wings in the state during practice.” The top wings that Watson is referring to would be senior Rodney Culver and Junior Jalen Tate, younger brother of…

    The Surprising Effects of Dairy on Your Daily Basketball Nutrition  I am a former college basketball player and during my freshmen season I had been struggling with severe digestive issues.  It was so bad that any time our team went out to the track or had a longer workout or practice; I began to dread it instantly, knowing that my IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) was going to flare up forcing me to have to embarrassingly ask to excuse myself once again.  It also made it difficult for me to perform with the level of intensity I needed to in order to keep up with the rest of the team, which…
