    Allerik Freeman

    Baylor’s front court is absolutely loaded, with Isaiah Austin and Cory Jefferson, who both decided to return to school, being flanked by the likes of Rico Gathers and Ishmael Wainwright. Where the Bears are going to be looking to find some production is in their back court. Pierre Jackson graduated, as did A.J. Walton, and…

    North Carolina A&T v Louisville

    Louisville’s hopes for repeating as national champs took a major blow on Thursday as the school announced that Chane Behanan has been suspended indefinitely from the team for a violation of University policy.

    Georgia Tech has their point guard. Trae Golden, who spent the past three seasons at Tennessee, has received a waiver to play immediately at Georgia Tech, according to a report from Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com. Golden averaged 12.1 points and 3.9 assists for the Vols last season, but he left the program abruptly in May,…

    Oct 17, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

    SEC Basketball Tournament - Quarterfinals - Vanderbilt v Kentucky

    The first installment of the USA Today Coaches Poll was released on Thursday afternoon, and it shouldn’t come as a shock to many of you that Kentucky was named the Preseason No. 1 team in the country. Believe it or not, that’s only the second time in program history that Kentucky has been named Preseason…

    Oct 17, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT

    Michael Frazier II

    There may not be a team in the country that is further from being at full strength than Florida is. Let’s run down the list, shall we? Will Yeguete is still recovering from offseason knee surgery and has yet to be cleared for practice. Eli Carter, who transferred into the program from Rutgers, isn’t yet…

  6. Bill Self altered his game plan vs. Texas Tech to impress Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 17, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    Last week, we posted a picture of the cover of the new Sports Illustrated, which featured all-world freshman Andrew Wiggins. It was a big deal, as Wiggins was the cover boy during what is arguably the busiest time of the year for sports fans. The article itself, which is now available to read online, was…

  7. #POSTERIZED: Dominic Artis dunks on … a chef? (VIDEO)

    Oct 17, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Oregon's Artis loses the ball as he goes to the basket against Louisville's Blackshear during their Midwest Regional NCAA men's basketball game in Indianapolis

    Oregon’s starting back court of Dominic Artis and Damyean Dotson crashed a meeting of the Pit Crew, the Duck’s student section. They dunked on a guy wearing a chef’s hat and an apron.  I’m not really sure anything else needs to be said here.

    USC Introduces New Basketball Coach Andy Enfield

    Florida-Gulf Coast earned themselves quite a reputation as they knocked off Georgetown and San Diego State en route to last season’s Sweet 16. #DunkCity became a craze. Ft. Myers, for one week last March, turned into the epicenter of the college hoops world, as writer after writer tried to figure where in the hell these…

  11. AAC commissioner Mike Aresco: ‘We will not pay players’

    Oct 16, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Mike Aresco

    Speaking at the inaugural American Athletic Conference media day down in Memphis, AAC commissioner Mike Aresco didn’t hesitate sharing his feelings about properly compensating collegiate athletes. “We will not pay players,” Aresco said. Ok, then. There’s more, from the AP: “We will not establish an employer-employee relationship. That’s not what college sports is about, and it…

  12. Providence frosh Brandon Austin out ‘maybe a week’ with a concussion

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Hoop Group

    Providence head coach Ed Cooley was at Chelsea Piers this afternoon for Big East media, and while he, like most of the coaches that attend those events, didn’t have much to say beyond standard coachspeak, Cooley did enlighten the media on some injury news. Freshman Brandon Austin suffered a concussion on Tuesday at practice and…

  13. Former Georgetown star Victor Page sentenced to 10 years in prison

    Oct 16, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    The Big Lead

    It’s been 17 years since he was relevant, so I won’t judge you if you don’t remember that Victor Page, not Allen Iverson, was the MVP of the 1996 Big East Tournament. And I’ll forgive you if you’ve forgotten that he led the Big East in scoring in 1997, before leaving for the NBA as…

    austin

    Fox Sports 1 bought up the rights to broadcast the new Big East’s games heading into the 2013-2014 season, and they managed to bring aboard a couple of the biggest names in the business to call those games: Gus Johnson and Bill Raftery. This season, there won’t be anything better than a game that comes…

    9223360

    (MORE: Watch all of this year’s #POSTERIZED’s here) Kethan Savage is a sophomore at George Washington, and while he managed to play his way into the starting lineup late in his freshman season, Savage is still a name that you may not recognize if you’re not a GW diehard. You may become familiar with his…

    Wisconsin Badgers head coach Bo Ryan ecourages his team against the Syracuse Orange during the first half of their men's NCAA East Regional basketball game in Boston

    Wisconsin fans have a tradition. In between the third and fourth quarters at football games, ‘Jump Around’ by House of Pain gets blasted through the speakers while the fans at the stadium … jump around. It’s one of those dumb, corny traditions that makes college and college athletics just so, so awesome. On Saturday, with…

  18. Marshall Henderson met Texas A&M’s president (PHOTO)

    Oct 15, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    @ClayTravisBGID

    Marshall Henderson spent a good six months as college basketball’s bad boy, a trash-talking, hard-partying, three-point slinging free spirit that somehow managed to stay out of major trouble while leading Ole Miss to the SEC tournament title a season ago. In other words, he was the Johnny Manziel of hoops. Maybe on a lesser scale,…

  19. Andrew Wiggins’ shoe contract could be worth $140-180 million

    Oct 15, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    One of the most interesting, and underreported, aspects of Andrew Wiggins’ decision to enroll at Kansas instead of Florida State, North Carolina and Kentucky had little to do with basketball and everything to do with shoes. Wiggins came up as a Nike kid. He played for the CIA Bounce, which is affiliated with Nike. Huntington…

    More and more, transfers are becoming an integral part of college basketball.

  22. Is Louisville’s back court of Russ Smith, Chris Jones dynamic or combustible?

    Oct 15, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT

    Russ Smith

    The college basketball newcomer with the most pressure on him entering the season is Andrew Wiggins. That is pretty much indisputable at this point. When people toss around comparisons to folks like Kevin Durant and LeBron James, you know you’re in a different stratosphere as a prospect. Second on that list is debatable, but one…

    Oct 14, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Anthony Collins, Tom Maayan

    There may not have been a player in the country that had a more difficult offseason than Tom Maayan of Seton Hall. He nearly went to war. Literally. You see, Maayan is an Israeli national, which means that he is subject to the mandatory three-year term of service in the Israeli Defense Force. Just days…
