    There has been a lot of change at Arizona over the past few months, with several players and even a coach leaving the program.

    UM-GRADUATION

    We all wring our hands so much about kids leaving school early to go to the NBA these days. But the lure of money and fame is hard to resist, and always has been. Henry Bacon, who played on Denny Crum’s first Final Four team at Louisville, left school with one class unfinished in 1972.…

    Louisiana-Monroe v Florida State

    If you’re looking to showcase your talents in an up-tempo system, Florida State is not where you want to be.

Whisnant is said to be…

    Brad Brownell

    Brad Brownell addressed a glaring lack of size on his team this week, as Sidy Djitte committed to Clemson.

    So much to enjoy about this video. First, if you didn’t know it before, Albuquerque’s minor league team – the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers – is called the Isotopes.

    Kansas Jayhawks McLemore reacts after a dunk against the Michigan Wolverines during the second half in their South Regional NCAA men's basketball game in Arlington

    Ben McLemore surprised nobody when he declared for the NBA draft after just one season at Kansas. His sweet, sweet jumpshot, viewed through the lens of his family’s poverty, made the decision a no-brainer. There’s nothing wrong with following your talents and earning money when you can. What allegedly went on behind the scenes, on…

    SEC Basketball Tournament - Second Round-Tennessee-Mississippi St

    Every early-entry decision made by a college player has repercussions. Ripples that flow outward from that simple “yes” or “no” to testing the NBA waters.

    139th Kentucky Derby

    When you get down in the metaphorical mud and grit of a basketball Final Four, it’s safe to bet on Rick Pitino’s thoroughbreds to at least win, place or show.

    For most of us, Maui is a dream destination. Sun, surf, luaus, the whole deal. If someone else is paying, so much the better. One guy’s not looking forward to putting on a floral-print shirt and ordering another mai-tai, however. According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, John Calipari does not plan to take his Kentucky Wildcats…

    image

    The Mountain West took some flak for getting multiple teams into this past season’s NCAA tournament, and the criticism was seemingly borne out as the league’s five bid-earners went 2-5 overall in tournament play. Boise State was one of the disappointments, losing out to La Salle in the preliminary games in Dayton. So, the Broncos…

    The Twitterverse is littered with appelations like @RealSkipBayless and @NotTheFakeSVP, and for good reason. Smart-alecks the world round enjoy pretending to be famous people, and according to internet law, if you nab the name first, it’s yours, even if it’s, you know, not really your name. Beyond that, even some of the so-called “@Real” and…
