    As much as we’ve all enjoyed Florida’s ridiculous workout videos and Patric Young’s attempt to woo NFL scouts, the most interesting story line of the summer for Florida has been the eligibility saga of incoming freshman Chris Walker. Walker is a top ten recruit in the Class of 2013, a 6-foot-10 athlete that will be…

    Charlotte Bobcats ownerJordan watches as his team plays against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    Before Michael Jordan became ‘MJ’ and ‘His Airness’, the greatest basketball player of all-time was just another McDonald’s All-American recruit at North Carolina. Given the otherworldly that Jordan became known for early in his career, it would be poetic if his first career collegiate points came on a thunderous dunk or a ridiculous finish in…

    In year one under head coach Jeff Bower, Marist faces a challenging non-conference schedule with many of their tilts coming on the road.

    New court surfaces are going in fast and furious throughout collegeĀ basketball. Most of them are wild, eye-busting designs, with each program looking to top the last. One school, however, put in a nice, modest new floor. Boise State’s Taco Bell Arena, of all places, is the home of a relatively mellow, mostly natural-wood-colored court. You…

    Louisville v Wichita State

    Following a surprise Final Four run, there’s little doubt that Gregg Marshall and Wichita State are pulling in better players than the school has seen since Xavier McDaniel and Antoine Carr toed the stripe on campus. With big-time recruits come big-time headaches, it seems. Marshall had 6’7″, 240-lb.Ā juco transfer Earl Watson schedule to join the…

    I’ll be honest here. I don’t know if the French team Boulogne is any good or not, or how their talent level compares to your average SEC team, but the fact that they play in something called the “B Division” of French hoops doesn’t make them sound terribly impressive. What I do know, thanks to…

    Aug 17, 2013, 5:10 PM EST

    LIU Brooklyn v James Madison

    The First Four took a little getting used to for those of us who remember when the tourney was a perfectly balanced 64 teams.

    Bill Self

    Anyone who loves college basketball is looking forward to seeing what Andrew Wiggins can do in a Kansas uniform.
