    Malik Dime made it official Monday and gave a verbal commitment to Washington. The 6-10, 220-pound forward center at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa was also considering Iowa State, Rutgers and Arkansas. Dime said Washington junior Quevyn Winters, his former Indian Hills teammate, played a big role in his recruitment. Dime, a native of Senegal, averaged 7.7 points and 4.2 rebounds in 30 games last season. He shot 65.3 from the field and 55.6 on free throws. Here is a transcript of the Q&A. (Heard you had an important announcement this morning. Can you tell me about that?) "I just made…
  • Malik Dime to announce college choice Monday

    Malik Dime, a 6-10, 220-pound forward center at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa, is expected to announce his college choice Monday. He's considering Iowa State, Rutgers, Arkansas and Washington. "All four schools that have been involved in his recruitment have done a fantastic job," said Indian Hills coach John Wardenburg. "And I know why, because he's a special young man who keeps getting better and better every day - both on the floor and off the floor. He's very conscience about life and his school work. And on the basketball floor, he works really hard. He's gotten better every…

    Cliff Alexander, Kansas: Alexander is an explosive athlete who dominated high school last season due to his toughness and aggressiveness. While he may be considered slightly undersized at about 6-foot-9, Alexander is a terrific rebounder and bruising interior presence. He scores most of his points with dunks, but will need to add a post game at the collegiate level. Alexander may never become an elite post scorer, but his motor and strength should make him a potential double-double candidate every time he steps on the floor. As a physically advanced big man who competes, he should be a…

    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…

    The Maryland Terrapins have reportedly gain their first commitment for their 2015 recruiting class in Odessa (Tex.) Junior College point guard Jaylen Brantley.

  • How do you stop Michigan? ‘Hope they miss shots’

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:22 am
    Dustin Johnston ROSEMONT, Ill. — If you like offense, you’ve enjoyed watching Michigan lately. The last two seasons, the Wolverines have led the nation in adjusted offensive efficiency, operating at such a high pace in 2013-14 that they finished with the best recorded mark in Ken Pomeroy’s history. Michigan returns plenty of talent from last year, including preseason All-Big Ten team member Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, and Zak Irvin. Plus, the Wolverines should see immediate offensive contributions from 4-star forward Kameron Chatman. All told, John Beilein has said this may be his…

  • Top Five Kentucky basketball players during the John Calipari era

    19 Oct 2014 | 11:19 pm
    Kentucky basketball has a long and storied tradition. There have been many great players that have come through the program and shined. However, I am only discussing the best five players at Kentucky since Calpari took charge of the Cats. This list was hard to compile, and the only factors that are taken into account are a player’s production and the impact that they had for their respective teams. Calipari has coached and cultivated many talented players, many of who have gone on to have great professional careers in the NBA, but here are the five players that have impacted Kentucky…

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:22 pm
    Midnight Madness produces some memorable moments each year, so The Dagger is chronicling the best ones from this October's lineup. If you spot something we missed, let us know here or here. Memphis didn't have a formal dunk contest at its Midnight Madness event this year, but there's little doubt who would have won if the Tigers had kept score. Chris Hawkins, a 6-foot-6 forward from Southwest Tennessee Community College, threw the ball off the glass to himself, caught it in mid air and went between the legs in one motion before finishing with a smooth one-handed dunk. The dunk wasn't the only…

Dana Altman, Oregon Why the pressure is on: Unlike the other coaches on this list, Altman is not under pressure for his win-loss record. The Oregon coach has taken the Ducks to the NCAA tournament both of the past two seasons and to the Sweet 16 in 2013, but he has come under fire this offseason as a result of a slew of off-the-court issues. Of course, the most egregious was the rape accusations against former Ducks Dominic…

No longer is merely clearing a teammate enough to drop jaws during a dunk contest. Credit Mercer guard Ike Nwamu for throwing in a clever twist.

Drake also introduced John Calipari, calling him one of the most important people in his life. Plenty of…

    MUs best recruit in decades projects to land MU back in the NCAA tournament in 2016. Henry Ellenson steps on the court projected to be the 189th best Value Add player in the country even as a freshman. A look at MU’s projected roster for 2016 indicates three more players projected to be among the top 10% in the country – enough to propel MU to fourth in the Big East behind Georgetown, Xavier and Villanova (see updated google doc here).The full database is at www.valueaddbasketball.com, but it is not updated currently. The ceiling for MU is higher due to players whose projections were held…

Lastly, we turn to Marquette Madness and discuss whether it tells us almost nothing or absolutely nothing. Download this episode (right click and save)

  • Malik Dime to announce college choice Monday

    18 Oct 2014 | 6:16 pm
    Malik Dime, a 6-10, 220-pound forward center at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa, is expected to announce his college choice Monday. He's considering Iowa State, Rutgers, Arkansas and Washington. "All four schools that have been involved in his recruitment have done a fantastic job," said Indian Hills coach John Wardenburg. "And I know why, because he's a special young man who keeps getting better and better every day - both on the floor and off the floor. He's very conscience about life and his school work. And on the basketball floor, he works really hard. He's gotten better every…

  • Justin Holiday nearing his NBA dream

    14 Oct 2014 | 2:16 pm
    Nice story in the San Francisco Chronicle on former Washington standout Justin Holiday, who is trying to earn a roster spot with the Golden State Warriors. Holiday, 25, averaged a team-high 14.8 points for Golden State in the Las Vegas Summer League, but if the 6-6 shooting guard/small forward is going to stick, he's going to have to do it with his defense. He's one of four training camp invitees battling for a job. “I don’t need to go out here and do the jobs of Steph (Curry) and Klay (Thompson). I understand that,” Holiday told the Chronicle. “That’s what a team is about: playing…

    This is a very interesting interview with Blake Griffin. I wish it would have gone a little deeper into his comedy ideas and acts, but it's fun to see athletes open up and be transparent. This is one of my favorite questions from the interview.You got to meet Will Ferrell, who is one of your heroes, right?Yeah, I did. That was awesome. I found that kind of funny, though, because we were shooting a Funny or Die thing at his house, and I pulled up to his house, and every word he was saying I was hanging on, waiting for an awesome punch line, you know? Like waiting for everything to be a…

    After losing a lottery pick, a senior who scored more than 1,000 career points and several players via transfer, Indiana is going to look much different this winter. And given that 60 percent of the roster is new and the Hoosiers are without a true post presence, much of the team’s offense is going to […] The post Roster turnover aids Hoosiers on and off the court appeared first on Inside the Hall | Indiana Hoosiers Basketball News, Recruiting and Analysis.

  • Ten American Athletic Conference Prospects to Watch

    Carl Berman
    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…
  • College Basketball: American Athletic Conference Preview

    Carl Berman
    16 Oct 2014 | 12:33 pm
    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,…
  • Ten Big-12 Conference Prospects to Watch

    Carl Berman
    30 Sep 2014 | 12:23 pm
    Cliff Alexander, Kansas: Alexander is an explosive athlete who dominated high school last season due to his toughness and aggressiveness. While he may be considered slightly undersized at about 6-foot-9, Alexander is a terrific rebounder and bruising interior presence. He scores most of his points with dunks, but will need to add a post game at the collegiate level. Alexander may never become an elite post scorer, but his motor and strength should make him a potential double-double candidate every time he steps on the floor. As a physically advanced big man who competes, he should be a…

  • 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.

As if on cue the ball ends up in your son's hands and after making one of the greatest moves in the history of the NCAA Tournament he drains a 3 pointer a mere nanosecond before the buzzer sounds. Minutes later you and the rest of the basketball world are watching the replay as "One Shining Moment" plays in the background. Kind of cool…

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…

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!

    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…
