  • Duke freshman Jabari Parker declares for NBA draft (Yahoo Sports)

    17 Apr 2014 | 3:12 pm
    Jabari Parker is hoping to become Duke's latest one-and-done star to become the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. The 6-foot-8 All-American forward said Thursday he'll enter the NBA draft after being the highest-scoring freshman in Duke history. Now he has the chance to do what Kyrie Irving did in 2011: follow a one-year stay at Duke by being the first name called in the June draft. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement Thursday it was ''an honor for us to have him in our program.'' In an essay posted on SI.com, Parker said the NBA offers him the best chance to develop both as a player and off…

    Former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian is expected to leave a Las Vegas hospital soon after doctors performed a diagnostic procedure and determined no immediate surgical treatment was needed.

  • Wildcats G James Young to enter NBA draft (Yahoo Sports)

His 43 percent shooting from long range in the NCAA tournament helped Kentucky reach the final before it lost 60-54 to Connecticut last week.

    Jordan Adams will return to UCLA for his junior season and won't enter the NBA draft. The sophomore guard from Atlanta said Thursday he's had fun playing college basketball and he's excited about the team the Bruins will have next year. They'll be without sophomore Kyle Anderson and freshman Zach LaVine, both of whom said this week they're leaving school early to go pro. Adams led the Bruins in scoring with 17.4 points per game, was the second-leading rebounder with 5.3 per game, and set the school single-season steals record with 95.

"Frank is looking for a way out of Missouri," one source said. "This might be it." Haith just finished his third season at Missouri by missing the NCAA Tournament with a team talented enough to make it, and Mizzou fans have undeniably turned on him because of underachieving on the court and problems off of the court -- most recently the arrest and dismissal of Louisville transfer Zach Price. Sources told CBSSports.com that Tulsa is willing to pay in…

  • Parker gone, but Duke will be a title contender without him

    17 Apr 2014 | 11:03 am
    DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke's Jabari Parker, ACC Freshman of the Year and consensus First Team All-America, declared for the NBA Draft on Wednesday, a decision on its own that wasn't at all surprising. He may not go No. 1., but in what is perceived as a deep draft, Parker is still expected to go in the top five picks and potentially higher. It was a tough spot for Parker, as he is a different breed and, as he wrote in this 'Sports Illustrated' piece, genuinely loves college. But life without Parker shouldn't be too much of a struggle for Duke, as good as Parker was last year for the Blue Devils.

  • Duke's Jabari Parker makes the prudent choice to enter the NBA draft

    Jeff Eisenberg
    17 Apr 2014 | 10:00 am
    The tantalizing notion of close friends and fellow Chicago natives Jahlil Okafor and Jabari Parker playing together at Duke next season will not come to fruition.  Parker is leaving a year too soon. The national freshman of the year announced Thursday that he is forgoing his final three years of eligibility and entering the NBA draft, a decision that has been anticipated since before he ever donned a Duke jersey. Parker detailed his thought process in an essay published by SI.com, explaining that the lure of chasing a title with Okafor and the rest of his Duke teammates next season wasn't…
  • Nick Johnson chooses turning pro over chasing a title at Arizona

    Jeff Eisenberg
    15 Apr 2014 | 4:02 pm
    Of all the college prospects weighing whether or not to enter the NBA draft this spring, Nick Johnson had one of the most difficult decisions. No matter what he chose, the Arizona star had to make a sacrifice. If he stayed for his senior season at Arizona, there was a very good chance Johnson's stock would level off or even diminish. Not only would it be tough for Johnson to duplicate his All-American-caliber junior season with Stanley Johnson and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson sharing playing time at wing, he also would have little chance to prove to NBA scouts he could play point guard with T.J.

    At the same time as Tennessee was fighting to scrape together enough wins to make the NCAA tournament in late February, a petition with more than 30,000 signatures circulated the Internet urging the Vols to bring Bruce Pearl back after the season. Those Tennessee fans won't get Pearl but they will get a new coach. Cuonzo Martin is leaving Tennessee after three seasons to replace the newly retired Mike Montgomery as head coach at Cal. Martin led the Vols on a surprise run to the Sweet 16 last month after narrowly slipping into the NCAA tournament as a No. 11 seed. Leaving Tennessee now is a…

    What happens when the three leading scorers are removed from a Syracuse program that already struggled to generate enough offense late last season? We're about to find out. Syracuse announced Monday that sophomore forward Jerami Grant will forgo his final two seasons of eligibility and declare for the NBA draft. His decision ensures Syracuse will lose the core of this past season's 28-win team since All-ACC forward C.J. Fair is graduating and standout freshman point guard Tyler Ennis is also entering the NBA draft. The departure of Grant is not a huge surprise since he showed enough promise…

Before you start spouting off every reason you believe that Martin should have been let go, lets take a look at the facts. He spent three years in Knoxville, compiled a winning record, finished in the Top 5 of the conference every single season, visited the post-season all three years(2 NIT, 1 NCAA Tournament) and took Tennessee on a seemingly improbable deep run through the NCAA Tournament just a few…

All underclassmen have until April 27 to decide if they want to stay in school or take their game to the next level. As of now Parker is the only top five projected pick that is having a hard time making his mind up. Guess that is the effect playing for head coach Mike Krzyzewski, and the Blue Devils will do to a player that is more set on learning the game, and winning versus taking the money, and maybe becoming a superstar at the next…

Martin's team responded with 5 straight wins before a loss to #1 Florida in the SEC Tourney & followed that up with an improbable Sweet 16 run that prompted one Vol fan to write an open apology letter.After Tennessee's thrilling 73-71 loss to Michigan in the Sweet 16, his name has emerged as a possible replacement for Buzz Williams. After #ShakaWatch, it's to be expected that Warrior fans are lukewarm to just about any candidate.

  • Kyle Anderson, Zach LaVine enter NBA draft

    16 Apr 2014 | 1:31 pm
    Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine made it official, they're leaving UCLA and entering the NBA draft. Considering Jordan Adams and Norman Powell weren't included in Wednesday's news, it appears as if they're returning next season for the Bruins. In a statement released by the school, Anderson said: “I want to thank everyone at UCLA for all they have done for me. My two years at UCLA were two of the best years of my life. It was a tough decision to make with my family since our last game, but I have decided to enter my name into the NBA Draft. I will still continue to embrace the UCLA community,…

    INDIANAPOLIS — During a game this past Saturday at the Indyball Shootout, 2017 guard Paul Scruggs slowly brought the ball up the court, then suddenly burst into a sprint toward the hoop, catching the defense off-guard and assisting to an open player for the lay-up. It’s a common occurrence.

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:31 pm
    The second and final practice for the Jordan Brand Classic took place this morning and we primarily observed the West All-American Team today. The West Team is full of long, athletic wings and should put a lot of points on the board tomorrow. The players who stood out the most during today’s practice were: Stanley Johnson, SG  – Johnson was easily the biggest standout in today’s practice for the West Team. He led his team throughout majority of the scrimmage and seemed very confident. Johnson’s extremely athletic and able to get inside with ease. He also has nice range and was pretty…
  • 2014 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament: Day 1 Recap

    Carl Berman
    17 Apr 2014 | 10:58 am
    The 62nd annual edition of the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament tipped off on Wednesday with two contests. Unfortunately the main topic of conversation was the players that chose not to attend. We have made our feelings known concerning what we feel are shortsighted decisions by these young men and their agents. Given the number of seniors selected in the last few drafts and the fact that there is only one other five on five event this year followed by the combine in Chicago it is obvious that many players are taking great risks in not showcasing their talents in front of NBA staffs.

  • Is Your Bench Attitude Helping or Hurting You?

    13 Apr 2014 | 11:00 am
    Have you ever wondered why in the day and age of great video technology that coaches who want to scout and/or recruit still go watch games in person? Why do they spend all that time and money travelling to and from a game site when they could just watch a game on video? Well the answer is relatively simple: game videos usually don't show everything that coaches want to see! As a college coach I watch dozens, probably closer to hundreds, of games each and every year and I would guess that at least 95% of the time I try to sit across from the team benches. Even though this often puts me right…
  • 5 Ways to Prepare for the End of the Game

    27 Mar 2014 | 11:00 am
    Nearly every coach that I know is most comfortable when he or she is in control of what is happening on the court. They will spend days trying to determine who should start the game and weeks deciding which is the best offense and defense to use with their personnel. Many put rules and guidelines in place so their players know who should shoot, when they should shoot and precisely where they should shoot. These same players are taught how to defend their opponents by taking away specific team and individual strengths right from the opening tip. However, it's this same desire to control their…
  • Improving Your Ability to Concentrate

    20 Mar 2014 | 11:00 am
    Whenever I go to watch a high school or club game I try to sit across from the team benches so I can watch the coaches coach while checking out the attitudes and reactions of the players who are not in the game. However, I recently found myself in a very tiny gym with limited seating and so ended up sitting right behind one of the team benches. I obviously couldn't see the faces of the players or coaches but I could hear much of what was yelled from the bench and discussed in timeouts. After calling out specific offenses and yelling "Get a stop!" the next most common topic of instruction was…

    by Garrett Tucker Samford continues to keep the under-the-radar kids within the state lines of Alabama. Last year, the Bulldogs convinced Brandon Roberts to stay home, and this year, Gerald Smith has opted to stay home. Smith, a 6-foot-4 wing, gave his commitment to Bennie Seltzer and the Bulldogs on Wednesday. “It was a second home to me,” he told Future150.com. “I have a really close relationship with the coaching staff and the guys are really cool.” Smith proved to be a stat-stuffer during the season, as he averaged 23 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and…
  • 2015 Center Hearing From Schools Coast to Coast

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:45 am
    by Eric Hampford In a class lacking depth at the center position, 2015 big man Ernest Aflakpui has positioned himself nicely just in time for his final AAU season. Playing alongside high major classmate Derrick Jones at Archbishop Carroll (PA), Aflakpui used a big season on the high school hardwood to increase his national profile. At 6-foot-10, 230-pounds, the native of Ghana is an impressive rebounder and shot-blocker who runs the floor extremely well for a player his size. His offensive skill set needs polishing, but he has improved each time we have seen him over the past 12…

While there were some big name teams in the competition, there were also a number of smaller teams that made solid runs and knocked off some of the big boys. Here a few of the players who stood out: Ty-Mere Pierce, 2015 CG, Tucker Running Rebels: Pierce is a solid shooter who can also create his own shot as well as opportunities for others. He is a capable ball-handler that is crafty in getting into the lane and breaking the defense down.  He slowly making a name for himself this…

    This break between the Round of 32 and the Sweet Sixteen is pretty much the NCAA’s way of torturing its fans. I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next! In fact, I was so anxious that I just had to express some of it through this wonderful thing called the Internet. In the spirit of our theme here, I’m most interested in the Sweet Sixteen Cinderellas. Each year, it seems at least a few choice bracket busters make it this far. This year’s bunch is interesting. Three double-digit seeds have made their way here, and there are also three 1-seeds in the field.
