    Jim Boeheim

    Jim Boeheim joined the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday afternoon to discuss his ejection in the game at Duke. Because what else?

    GAME OF THE NIGHT: Cal at No. 3 Arizona, 9:00 p.m. The last time these two got together, Cal ended Arizona’s undefeated regular season on the same night that Brandon Ashley broke his foot. I think that the Wildcats have some vengeance that they will be looking to exact. Cal, on the other hand, is…

    Tom Izzo did a commercial for Werner ladders, which apparently has a ladder with enough space for you to dance on it. I know, because you can see Izzo … dancing on the ladder. If Michigan State cuts down any nets this year, I demand an Izzo dance.

    For many teams the loss of two starters during conference play would be a critical blow, one that would prove to be incredibly difficult to overcome. But for others such an issue doesn’t prove to be as problematic, with the Delaware Blue Hens being a prime example. In late-January point guard Jarvis Threat and forward…

    UConn’s Calhoun working through his slump (Connecticut Post) After a solid freshman campaign the 2013-14 season has been a disappointing one for UConn guard Omar Calhoun, who’s averaging just 5.1 points per game. Health issues during the offseason robbed Calhoun of valuable playing time to hone his skills, and during the season he’s seen his…

    There are a few highly-ranked teams this season that thrive on defense but have so far left much to be desired on the other side of the ball. One such squad San Diego State.

    Charles Mann led three players in double figures with 19 points, eight boards and four assists as Georgia pounded bubble-dweller Missouri at home, 71-56, on Tuesday night.

    Bradley attempted to slow down Wichita State tonight. The Braves’ thought-process was that through controlling the tempo, the Shockers might be caught unawares. However, as Gregg Marshall’s squad demonstrated throughout the 2014 season, this is a special group, and Wichita State defeated the Braves, 69-49 (Geno Ford’s team is now 12-18, 7-10 in Missouri Valley…

    Despite Langston Galloway’s scoring average (nearly 14 points per game) and perimeter scoring (39 percent from three) a year ago, the guard from Saint Joseph’s had an underwhelming junior season. His efficiency rating — 110.9 — was the lowest it had been during his three seasons on Hawk Hill, and with a large percentage of…

    There hasn’t been a hotter team in Big East play since late January than St. John’s. Steve Lavin’s squad was both clicking on defense (forcing countless steals) and on offense (consistently converting from two-point range), and the team looked like an shoo-in for an NCAA tournament bid. However, it appears the Red Storm has reverted…
