    New court surfaces are going in fast and furious throughout college 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.

    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…

    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. Even so, the fact that it was hosted at the University of Dayton year-in and year-out helped give it a certain cachet and familiarity. Dayton, of course, would love to keep…

    Bill Self

    Anyone who loves college basketball is looking forward to seeing what Andrew Wiggins can do in a Kansas uniform. The Canadian import is going to be the sizzle in Allen Fieldhouse for a season at most. But Bill Self’s teams are more often winners because there’s plenty of steak behind the sizzle. Wiggins has been…

    Hampton is back from a recent trip to the Bahamas, where the Pirates played three exhibition games against teams comprised of current and former college players and went 2-1.

    Wagner College

    While he may have played his college basketball at Wagner, there’s a good chance that fans familiar with the program remember former Central Connecticut State forward Obie Nwadike.

    Jim Boeheim

    College basketball programs making a summer trip out of the country are afforded the opportunity to hold ten practices before leaving campus.
