    When the dust settled, for the time being, with teams jumping around from one conference to another during conference realignment, the America East lost Boston University to the Patriot League, but picked up Massachusetts Lowell, formerly a Division II school from the Northeast 10.

    There aren’t many mid-major schools in the country that have such a rabid following like Siena. How many 8-24 mid-majors out there — actually, how many 8-24 teams, period — can say they averaged over 6,000 fans per home game last season? Siena outdrew Miami (FL) by more than 400 fans per home game, and…

    In the most highly anticipated season in Harvard basketball history — in fact, perhaps in Ivy League history — where there is already speculation of the Crimson beginning the season ranked in the Top 25, all but winning the Ivy League, and even making a deep run in the NCAA Tournament, the pressure is also…

    Incoming Memphis freshman Pookie Powell is enrolled in classes, but will redshirt for the 2013-14 season, his head coach Josh Pastner announced today. This is a win all the way around.

    Sean Miller

    Arizona is a sure bet to begin the season ranked in the Top 10, and may even crack the Top 5. They have one of the top recruits in the country in Aaron Gordon who will make his presence immediately felt. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will be one of the top freshmen in the country next year, alongside…

    Cameron Ridley

    Much has been made over the last week or so of Rick Barnes’ struggles at Texas. The consensus seems to be that Barnes has taken his foot off the accelerator on the recruiting trail, that something in his life has made him realize that his job is only that: a job. But regardless of the…

    Tyler Ulis

    When Emmanuel Mudiay committed to SMU, he did a lot more than just pick Larry Brown over Coach Cal and a program that hasn’t been to the NCAA tournament in 20 years over a team 16 months removed from a national title. He also sent some of the nation’s biggest programs scrambling to find a…

    This is the time of year that preview magazines start rolling out, and while much of what is written in these magazines — and our preview series, which we will start rolling out next month — will be proven wrong in the first month of the season, arguing about where a team is ranked or…

    Aug 27, 2013, 8:58 AM EST

    PJ Hairston

    The assumption within the North Carolina program seems to be that embattled guard PJ Hairston will miss some time this season, but that it’s a virtual certainty that he will play this season. UNC AD Bubba Cunningham said as much to a group of journalism professors earlier this month. And now, for the first time…
