  1. Larry Brown’s impressive coaching tree at Kansas

    Jun 4, 2013, 10:42 AM EDT

    larry-brown1

    As much as we like to rate coaches based on the wins and the losses that they accumulate over the course of their careers, perhaps the best way to truly evaluate a coach’s ability as a teacher is to look at his coaching tree. A coaching tree is an awful lot like a family tree,…

  2. Two months later and Kevin Ware is healthy enough to shoot?

    Jun 4, 2013, 9:40 AM EDT

    KevinWare

    I know it seems like forever ago, but it has only been 64 days since Kevin Ware suffered a gruesome, compound fracture against Duke during Louisville’s run to the 2013 national title. Do the math. That’s just a shade over two months since Ware lay on his back with the bone sticking out of the…

  3. VIDEO: On the day of Jason Kidd’s retirement, check out his highlights from Cal

    Jun 3, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd, George Hill

    Today, Jason Kidd called it quits on his basketball playing career. The man was in the NBA so long, a lot of people forget how incredible he was in college. Kidd was insane. I heard endless stories from those ahead of me about his passing prowess with the Golden Bears — he averaged 7.7 assists…

    8965514

    There seems to be a trend growing this offseason, and it’s come in the form of new home-court designs. We’ve seen it all, essentially, so far. From the outlandish (though, in my opinion, it’s awesome), to the historic, to the basic. Well, add Old Dominion, and you can lean their design closer to basic. The…

    Arguably the biggest loss for any team in the SEC last season (not named Nerlens Noel) was Tennessee forward Jeronne Maymon, who missed all of the 2012-13 season with a knee injury that eventually required surgery. Well it looks like Maymon might be close to being completely recovered. The fifth-year senior told GoVolx247.com that he’ll…

  6. Cal resurfaces, redesigns court; and everyone loves a time lapse, right?

    Jun 3, 2013, 8:15 PM EDT

    Creighton v California

    Some projects happen without people knowing how much work went into them, mainly because they’re out of the public eye. Therefore, it’s tough to appreciate them fully. California recently resurfaced the court at Haas Pavilion, and then posted a time lapse of it on YouTube. And who doesn’t love a good time lapse, right? The…

  7. Houston Baptist lands transfer Fred Richardson III

    Jun 3, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    large_richardson 2

    Heading into its first season in the Southland Conference, Houston Baptist will need all the help it can get in an attempt to earn the program’s first-ever NCAA Division I Tournament berth. Some of that help may have come in the form of Oregon transfer Fred Richardson III, who will now suit up for the…

  8. #DunkCity announces transfer….on YouTube

    Jun 3, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Julian DeBose, Richard Carter

    Transfers happen. If you’ve kept up with college basketball over the last five seasons, you know they happen a lot. Most schools just send out a release announcing the addition or defection of a player into or out of their program, maybe wish them well, normally don’t reveal the specifics of why they left, and…

  9. Trey Freeman transfers closer to home, lands at Old Dominion

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:34 PM EDT

    Trey Freeman

    Former Campbell guard Trey Freeman has found a new program. The junior-to-be will be taking his 14.3 points, 5.8 assists and 3.2 rebound-per-game averages from last season to Old Dominion next year, according to multiple reports. The 6-2 native of Virginia Beach, Va. was the workhorse for the Fighting Camels the last two seasons, averaging…

  10. Rick Pitino also is not amused by Gordon Gee’s comments

    Jun 3, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    The Gordon Gee Apology Train keeps rolling on, and it also keeps adding those that want to derail it, with Gee on it. Louisville coach Rick Pitino appeared on the radio with local host Terry Meiners a few days ago, and was asked about Ohio State President Gordon Gee’s comments regarding Louisville, the SEC and…

  11. Patric Young, Will Yeguete befriend three-year old cancer patient

    Jun 3, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    University of Florida center Patric Young and University of Minnesota forward Trevor Mbakwe battle for the ball during their third round NCAA basketball game in Austin, Texas

    Florida forwards Patric Young and Will Yeguete have both spent time in the hospital this offseason. Young underwent ankle surgery while Yeguete had another procedure done on his knee. I’m sure that their time there was anything but pleasant, but it almost certainly was better than Kaedyn Ballew’s hospital visits. Ballew is a three-year old, Ocala,…

    The life of a basketball coach seems like it’s glamourous. And at times it is, particularly if you’re coaching at a level where you travel on private jets, network with millionaire boosters and play every game on ESPN. But for the majority of coaches in college basketball, that’s not the case. Most spend their days…

  14. Karl Towns Jr., the next … Randy Johnson?

    Jun 3, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    Karl Towns

    If you’re a college basketball coach, I can’t imagine there is much out there that is more disconcerting that finding out that one of your star recruits is considering picking up another sport for his senior season. When you’re John Calipari and that recruit just so happens to be Karl Towns Jr., one of the…

  15. Oklahoma City tornadoes too close to home for Tennessee’s Josh Richardson

    Jun 3, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    SEC Basketball Tournament - Quarterfinals-Tennessee-Alabama

    Like everyone else, I’ve spent the past two weeks glued to the coverage of the deadly tornado outbreaks in the Oklahoma City area. It’s heartbreaking and terrifying to watch from a distance, so I can only imagine what Edmond, OK, native and Tennessee forward Josh Richardson is going through. Edmond is located just a couple…

    Joshua Brown, a nine-year old cancer patient that had befriended the St. Louis basketball team during the 2012-2013 season, passed away over the weekend. Brown had been connected with the Billikens through a program called Friends of Jaclyn that links children with brain tumors to college sports teams. He had suffered from glioblastoma multiforme.

  19. Pac-12 independent review rules no further action needed in Ed Rush/Arizona case

    Jun 2, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    Sean Miller

    In early April allegations that former Pac-12 head of officiating Ed Rush placed a bounty on Arizona head coach Sean Miller in advance of the Pac-12 tournament sparked a great amount of conversation. In the Wildcats’ Pac-12 semifinal loss to UCLA, Miller was hit with a technical foul that many would describe as “dubious.” Miller…

According to Jeff Borzello of CBSSports.com Stetson is expected to hire Florida State assistant Corey Williams as the school’s new head coach.
