    BC, UConn

    There is little love lost between the Boston College and Connecticut athletic programs. When Boston College left the Big East for the ACC in 2005, then Connecticut men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun made it known he would refuse to play the Eagles as long as he was running the show in Storrs, saying: “We won’t play…

    NCAA FGCU Basketball

    The Florida Gulf Coast men’s basketball team put not just their program, but school on the map advancing to the Sweet 16 in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. It’s impossible to put a price on the kind of exposure and earned media the school from Fort Myers — established just over 20 years ago in 1991…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Kelly Kline/Under Armour

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Richmond, VA, native Devin Robinson has made quite a name for himself in recruiting circles. An athletic, 6-foot-8 wing with range out to the college three-point line and the kind of lanky build that will make him a playmaker on the defensive end of the floor, Robinson’s play has done the talking…

    Kelly Kline / Under Armour

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Myles Turner might not realize it quite yet, but the next few months he’s going to be a marked man among college coaches and his fellow players.

    Jun 15, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT


    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — In theory, exposure camps like the NBPA Top 100 are great. Bringing some of the nation’s top talent together to workout together and get coached by guys who make their living through basketball, and then allowing them to perform in front of a who’s-who of national media members seems like a perfect…

  18. A ‘Longhorn Road Trip’ comes to an end after 254 straight games

    Jun 15, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT


    This post has less to do with college hoops than it does with a severe case of college hoops fandom. And road trips. We all know how I feel about college basketball road trips. But what Troy and I did for 23 straights days back in the winter of 2012 pales in comparison to what…

    When Dan Muller was hired as the new head coach at Illinois State, it was stipulated that assistant coach Rob Judson would be a member of his coaching staff.
