  1. Eau de Jordan, with a soupcon of Roy Williams?

    What’s that smell? It’s University of North Carolina, the new scent from Masik Collegiate Fragrances. They’ve done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time. It’s quite pungent. It stings the nostrils, in a good way. I’m kidding, of course, but this very real scent is on the market, and selling like hotcakes.…

  2. DPS: Crickets and the Klan kept Ewing from becoming a Heel

    Jun 15, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    EPIX Premiere Of Amar'e Stoudemire IN THE MOMENT

    In 1982, Patrick Ewing and Michael Jordan were freshman phenoms, and they ended up playing in the national title game against one another. Ewing for Georgetown, and Jordan for North Carolina. At this point, it’s impossible to imagine either man in a different uniform. Ewing in gray, Jordan in blue. According to a Thursday interview…

    Murry Bartow

    Lots of big news coming out of East Tennessee State these days. First, the Buccaneers, along with VMI and Mercer announced that they will be joining the Southern Conference in July of 2014. Friday, we learned that head coach Murry Bartow will be adding two new assistant coaches to his staff. As ETSU prepares for…

  4. Last-minute father’s day gift? How about a call from a title-winner?

    Jun 15, 2013, 7:47 PM EDT

    Rick Pitino, Quentin Ghelardini

    Father’s day is one of the most legendary goof-off holidays in human history. Does dad want a tie? No, but he’s getting one anyway. And the old man is so cool, he’ll smile fondly anyway. Unless… Unless dad happens to be a big college hoops fan, in which case you can throw a surprise curveball…

    We here at CBT pride ourselves on our dedication to bringing you the most important college hoops news, doing it quickly, and making it as accurate as possible. This has nothing to do with that. This is, quite simply, a wonderful godsend from the deviant minds over at Reddit. They posted the photo of Bruce…

  6. Penn State picks up sought-after point guard

    Jun 15, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    Patrick Chambers

    It’s going to be a struggle for Penn State to gain any traction in a Big Ten that just keeps getting more and more loaded with every round of expansion and realignment, but the Nittany Lions just locked down 2014 point guard Shep Garner, and that should help. Aside from having a really great name…

  7. Ex-DI coach wins a title in Israel

    Jun 15, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    Brad Greenberg

    Remember when the Greenberg coaching family seemed to be the kings of southwest Virginia? Younger brother Seth was the head coach of Virginia Tech, managed to beat a couple of top-25 opponents every season, and was living a pretty charmed life as a result. His older brother Brad, a former NBA GM with the Philadelphia…

    Jun 8, 2013, 11:28 PM EDT

    Illinois v Ohio State

    Late-breaking news from the Land of Lincoln tonight. It seems Myke Henry, who requested his release from Illinois just over a month ago, has chosen his new school. According to our own Scott Phillips, Henry will move upstate and join Oliver Purnell’s perpetual rebuilding project at DePaul. Myke Henry is a nice grab for DePaul…

  9. New evidence puts UNC academic scandal back on the front burner

    Jun 8, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    North Carolina coach Williams and players watch the final minute of Kansas' win in the third round of the NCAA men's tournament in Kansas City, Missouri

    We began hearing about possible academic malfeasance at North Carolina-Chapel Hill about a year ago. At first, the evidence pointed primarily toward the football team. Allegations of no-show classes, grade inflation, excessive assistance from tutors and other improprieties have been flying. Then the true pride of the Tar Heels, the basketball team, became implicated. Click…

  10. Wiggins will put Kansas before Canada this summer

    Jun 8, 2013, 9:06 PM EDT


    Earlier today, we reported on Bill Self’s speculation about the summer plans of Andrew Wiggins. The season’s biggest recruit is from Canada, and has the opportunity to represent his home country on the FIBA U19 team. Self believed that Wiggins would give at least part of his summer over to Team Canada. Turns out Self…

  11. USA Basketball looks to put its stamp on youth sports

    Jun 8, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Jim Tooley

    There are a lot of skill development camps for young basketball players. It can be tough to know which ones are legit, and which ones are just a good way to make a quick buck. USA Basketball, the governing body that assembles the national team and all of the youth versions of it, would like…

  12. Love that dirty water? Boston has a hoops tournament for you

    Jun 8, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    Victoria McGrath

    I’ve always been a big fan of Philadelphia’s commitment to the Big 5 round-robin. I’d like to see more cities do the same: get local DI programs together for a royal rumble. Looks like the city of Boston is taking the first step toward something similar. The Daily Free Press is reporting that six teams…

  13. Report: Taran Buie seeking third chance at Siena

    Jun 8, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT


    Taran Buie’s college career has been checkered, to say the least. As the half-brother of Talor Battle, he was welcomed into the Penn State family with open arms as a freshman. Following an off-campus fight and a suspension for violation of team rules, Buie was released from his PSU scholarship, leaving the Nittany Lions and…

  14. Hoops “Rudy” is quantifying hustle with computers

    Jun 8, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Kim English, Zach Rosen

    The NCAA likes to remind you that most of their athletes go pro in “something else”. This is the story of one of those guys. Vasu Kulkarni grew up hoops-mad in India. When he was accepted as a student at Penn, he thought he’d carry that love over to a college career – his version of…

  15. Bader will stay put, chase Redick’s record at Oakland next season

    Jun 1, 2013, 11:11 PM EDT

    Keaton Miles, Travis Bader

    Welcome to the Pollyanna News Report. We’ve heard so much about college basketball stars as “free agents” recently, I thought I’d take a look at a kid who plans to dance with the partner what brung him, even though is skills could theoretically land him a title shot at a major program if he chose…

  16. Davidson adds Duke to brutal non-con schedule

    Jun 1, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Davidson v Marquette

    Davidson is moving to the A-10 after next season, which is a dramatic scheduling upgrade from the Southern Conference, where the Wildcats have played (with brief breaks) since 1936. According to, the SoCon was the nation’s No. 27 conference last season. The A-10, on the other hand, was a solid No. 8. You’d think…

  17. Should there be 13 positions in basketball?

    First of all, don’t ask me how to read that chart, because I don’t get it, either. That’s because it was generated by Stanford math major Muthu Alagappan, who uses software to collate vast data points into visual data so as to more easily pick out trends in the data. He’s become quite a force…

  18. Transfer Perry brings “thickness” to San Diego

    Jun 1, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

    Cal State Northridge v UCLA

    The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that Cal State Northridge Matadors forward Brandon Perry will head south on I-5 and recommence his college hoops career with the San Diego Toreros next season. (Side note: apparently a matador and a torero are sort of the same thing. You learn something new every day.) Perry played fairly…

    We reported yesterday on a possible rule change being considered by the NCAA. Per John Infante of College Sports Scholarships, the governing body may waive limits on meal money and clothing allowances for student athletes, in essence clearing the way for athletic departments to assist athletes with living expenses that were previously seriously curtailed.

  20. Report: Rutgers AD inflicted “mental cruelty” in her own coaching days

    May 26, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Julie Hermann

    A couple of words the board at Rutgers might want to re-acquaint themselves with: “due” and “diligence”. Just weeks ago, Scarlet Knights men’s head basketball coach Mike Rice was fired for verbally and physically abusing his players during practice, in a scandal that also took down the school’s AD. Rutgers alum Eddie Jordan was hired…

    Grizzlies Mavericks Basketball

    We know the road to the 2014 national championship will end in Dallas (Arlington, whatevs) next season. Now we also know that the title chase will begin there as well.

  22. UVA’s Jesperson will transfer to Northern Iowa

    May 25, 2013, 9:10 PM EDT

    North Carolina State Wolfpack forward C.J. Leslie fights for a loose ball against Virginia Cavaliers guard Paul Jesperson during the first half of their ACC Championship college basketball game in Greensboro

    Former Virginia guard Paul Jesperson has made his transfer decision today, and he’ll be joining the Northern Iowa Panthers. Jesperson, a former Wisconsin Mr. Basketball, got off to a slow start in Charlottesville, seeing little playing time as a freshman. As a sophomore, his defensive prowess earned him more minutes, but his offensive skills still…

  23. Report: Former UMass guard Jesse Morgan enrolls at Temple

    May 25, 2013, 5:06 PM EDT

    Jesse Morgan

    Jesse Morgan had a rough season at UMass last season, to say the least. Morgan, along with teammates Cady Lalanne and Trey Davis, was suspended from a preseason exhibition game for undisclosed disciplinary reasons. Then he went down with a season-ending ACL injury on January 10, in the midst of his strongest season to date.…

  24. Coach K and USA Basketball may be on the move

    May 25, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    US Krzyzewski Basketball

    We just found out that Mike Krzyzewski will continue to shepherd America’s elite international basketball squad. Amid a tacit assertion of predictability in the coaching ranks, Coach K paid lip service to the notion that it’s time for USA Basketball to physically move out of its current offices in Colorado Springs. “I think in the near future…

    Friday evening, VCU head coach Shaka Smart did one of those things coaches do in the offseason. He took to the field in a minor league game to throw out a first pitch. It was an auspicious day for the Rams’ head man, as he was being honored with his very own bobblehead doll last…
