Auriemma's Huskies lead the country in scoring at 89.7 points a game, but he said the women's game isn't much better than the men's, down three points a contest.

    Every year, whenever the last unbeaten college basketball team falls for the first time, Tom Abernethy's three sons always take great pleasure in poking fun at their father. "They'll mockingly tell me, 'Oh, you survived another year, dad," Abernethy said. "It's all in jest, of course." [DraftKings: Play Fantasy College Basketball – Draft your team today!] Abernethy and his 1976 Indiana Hoosiers teammates may not have much longer to lay claim to the title of the last team to capture the national title without losing a game. The 39-year wait for another undefeated team could end in less than…

(AP Photo, File) INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Quinn Buckner says he and his 1976 Indiana teammates aren’t chilling any champagne to uncork in celebration of a Kentucky loss. Instead, the nation’s last undefeated college basketball team is eager to end the 39-year wait to add another member to the club — even if an old rival is trying to make…

    31 Mar 2015 | 2:02 pm
    Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo could have given a grand speech about how his team won the game and they have two more big games ahead of them. Instead, he went a much simpler route and gave the Spartans a more “team of destiny” kind of speech. He kept his guys loose and ready for Indianapolis this weekend and I have a feeling that strategy just might work.

  • Final Top 100 Big East Players; Notes on MU Needing the Big 3 Stars

    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…
  • The season has ended and winter seems to be on the way there's that

    22 Mar 2015 | 6:03 pm
    The season has been a grind to say the least, but the first in the Wojo era is now over and we need to talk about. We spend a little time talking about the Big East tournament, but not too much because there wasn't a lot new there. We then talk relatively surprising news, the transfer of Steve Taylor Jr to parts unknown. Since the season is over we have to talk about how this news impacts next year's team and vent a little disappointment. Speaking of disappointment, we talk about the Big East performance in March Madness. We try to put it in perspective for Marquette short and long term and…

    22 Mar 2015 | 9:38 am
    DePaul University mathematics professor Jeff Bergen figured out the odds for a perfect NCAA bracket.  A mind boggling 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 1.  That's 9 quintillion, basically a digit with 18 zeros after it.  After only 3 games on Thursday,  CBS had only 0.27% of their brackets from users remained perfect.  ESPN was down .4%.  By night's end on Friday night, only one person in the U.S. out of 11 million brackets still had a perfect bracket.  That was undone when Ohio State lost in the second game on Saturday.If you wish to watch Dr. Bergen explain how…

We also spend some time discussing Steve Taylor and whether his last two games are indicative of his senior year or a match-up thing. From there, we move to the up coming conference tournament in NYC and Marquette's chance to win at least one game and what it would take to beat Villanova approximately 6 hours after beating Seton Hall.

  • More Skills Equals More Time

    30 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    I like watching the NBA as much as anyone but sometimes the influence it has on today's players isn't always positive. For example, the NBA has become a league full of specialists. Each team has a ball handler/penetrator, a 3point shooter, a slasher, a defensive stopper, etc. who has their own particular area of expertise. There's a coach in our conference that has had a fairly successful career using the NBA model of building his team around a group of specialists. One player handles the ball, one spots up and shoots the 3, one drives from the elbow and one posts up when necessary. It seems…
  • How to Create Game Changing Mismatches

    15 Feb 2015 | 10:00 am
    As coaches we are always on the hunt for new, simple, and effective ways to put points on the scoreboard. There is almost a mystic lure that attracts coaches and players to points and most of us think you can never score enough. If you are one of the fortunate ones who have a big time scorer on your team then you don't need not to worry as much as most of us do about scoring points. Just put the ball in the scorer's hands and let him go to work! However if you are like the majority of coaches who does not have a big time scorer on their team, one way to increase your team's chances of scoring…
  • Drill Fast to Play Fast

    10 Feb 2015 | 10:00 am
    I recently went to watch my daughter's high school team play and arrived at the gym in time to watch the second half of the JV game. Both teams warmed up with a standard, generic two line layup drill where each player jogged about half speed, caught a pass, took a couple of dribbles and shot an uncontested layup. Not a single player traveled, dribbled the ball off her foot, or missed a shot. Then the second half started with both teams playing full court pressure man to man defense. The home team's point guard built up a head of steam and blew by her defender but lost complete control of her…
