    Sacred Heart University

    In 35 seasons as head coach at Sacred Heart University, Dave Bike racked up a list of accomplishments that any coach would be proud to claim. More than 500 victories, a Division II national title in 1986 and a transition to the Division I level that was completed in 1999. The Pioneers may not have…

  2. DePaul’s new arena makes even less sense than we originally thought

    May 30, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Oliver Purnell

    When plans to build a new arena for DePaul using $100 million of taxpayer money were first announced a couple of weeks ago, the universal reaction was, more or less, “WTF”? Thanks to some digging done by Danny Ecker of ChicagoBusiness.com, that plan makes even less sense. To make a long story short, DePaul is…

    May 30, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    California v UNLV

    In a move that surprised exactly no one, former UNLV guard Katin Reinhardt has decided to transfer to USC. Reinhardt originally committed to the Trojans when he was in high school. The news was first reported by Hoopsworld earlier this week. Reinhardt is a talented player, ranking among the top 50 recruits coming out of…

  5. The SEC is trying to improve their basketball, and that’s a good thing

    SEClogo

    The SEC was awful last season. Three NCAA bids from a 14-team power conference is, frankly, unacceptable. Some of that isn’t necessarily the league’s issue, as Kentucky, the one blueblood program among the SEC ranks, had a a down year, getting knocked out in the first round of the NIT by Robert Morris. The league…

    The University of Buffalo is the latest program to unveil a new, unique court design this offseason. And if we’re being honest, I love the simplicity of it: There are no breaking waves or forests or national monuments or anything. It’s just a basketball court, with the name of the university and a picture of…

  7. The latest on the disaster that is Rutgers’ athletic department

    May 30, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Rutgers

    Rutgers athletic department is a train wreck, and I’m not simply talking about the fact that every decision that they have made over the course of the last six month has been the wrong one. It’s so ugly, yet I can’t look away. I keep waiting for the next bombshell. If you need a refresher,…

  8. The AAC unveils their league logo, but doesn’t recognize Louisville or Rutgers?

    So the American Athletic Conference has released their logo and, well, you tell me how it looks, because I can’t, for the life of me, find a way to get excited about league logos. I will say, however, that I do appreciate a somewhat minimalist approach taken here: What I find endlessly more interesting than…

    May 29, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    UNC Asheville v Ohio State

    In the aftermath of UNC Asheville promoting associate head coach Nick McDevitt to replace Eddie Biedenbach as head coach, a major question was the status of guard Keith Hornsby.

Va.) center Dominic Woodson committed to the school according to multiple outlets (subscription required). Standing at 6-10, 315, Woodson gives Memphis some additional bulk in the paint following…

    Rutgers University Introduces New Athletic Director Julie Hermann

    One of the biggest factors in the backlash that came as a result of Rutgers’ hiring of Julie Hermann to be their next athletic director was the fact that Hermann was accused of mistreating her players while coaching volleyball at the University of Tennessee. During the 1996 season 15 members of the team felt the…

    May 29, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Indiana v Illinois

    In his first season as head coach at Illinois, head coach John Groce led the Fighting Illini to 23 wins and very nearly past East Region 2-seed Miami in the NCAA tournament round of 32. As a result of his successful debut, Groce was approved for a raise in salary and a three-year extension of…

  13. MAAC basketball championships to return to Albany in 2015

    maac

    When it was announced in December 2009 that the MAAC Basketball Championships would be played in Springfield, Mass. from 2012-14, those in favor of the move touted the fact that the MassMutual Center would be a neutral site. The move came at a time in which the main tenant of the Times Union Center, Siena,…

    PROVIDENCE JOURNAL FILES / GLENN OSMUNDSON

    Former Rhode Island forward and current West Virginia-commit Jonathan Holton has finally had his legal issues cleared up. Holton was arrested and charged with two counts of voyeurism last March after two female students said that he videotaped separate consensual sexual encounters with them without their knowledge and posted the videos to Facebook.

  16. Report: Wichita State’s Gregg Marshall recruiting … a two-year old? (VIDEO)

    Gonzaga v Wichita State

    That’s according to a report from The Jimmy Kimmel Show, who had a camera in the meeting that two-year old trickshot artist Titus Ashby had with Gregg Marshall, the Wichita State head coach that is coming off of a Final Four appearance in 2013. Titus, if you remember, had a trickshot video go viral back…

  17. Aaron Gordon is an example of one of the downfalls of the one-and-done rule

    May 29, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Aaron Gordon

    Yesterday, I penned a fairly lengthy post on Aaron Gordon and why I think that it would be dumb for Arizona to play him at the three next season. The cliff notes version? Gordon is a prototype college four-man, he doesn’t yet have the skills to be a perimeter player, and Arizona’s rotation works oh-so-much…

  18. Study says Louisville has college basketball’s best fanbase; Kentucky 7th

    May 29, 2013, 12:36 PM EDT

    NCAA Final Four Kentucky Louisville Basketball

    The folks over at the Emory Sports Marketing Analytics put together an interesting study on Wednesday. In an effort to determine what college basketball program in the country has the strongest fanbase — they call it “Fan Equity”, which sounds really smart — they may have accidentally thrown some gas on the fire of the…
