    Tom Izzo

    When Tom Izzo kicked Chris Allen and Korie Lucious out of the Michigan State program during the 2010-2011 season I bet he never thought that he would be spending time talking about the reasons for those dismissals as he helped prepare his Spartans, a consensus top three team, for the 2013-2014 season. But thanks to…

    Sep 24, 2013, 9:35 AM EST

    P.J. Hairston

    What kind of punishment PJ Hairston receives for an offseason’s worth of troubling headlines, run-ins with the law and one reported association with a convicted felon with a penchant for renting nice cars, but what’s clear at this point is that North Carolina will have their leading returning scorer back on the team in 2013-2014.…

    Sep 23, 2013, 8:45 PM EST

    Dan Muller

    Illinois State forward Deontae “Teddy” Hawkins will have plenty of opportunities to show his skills in the Missouri Valley Conference during the 2014-15 season, but it won’t come against Wichita State. That’s because the 6’8” Hawkins, who signed with the Shockers in the fall of 2011, will have to sit out both of Illinois State’s…

    Sometimes it’s hard to remember which teams switched over to new leagues. But while we’re finally wrapping our minds around the conference alignment changes, you can sometimes forget that teams are also recruiting for the new league they’re entering.

  15. Chris Mack to sign 12-year old Trey Couch to Letter of Intent

    Sep 23, 2013, 3:50 PM EST

    Chris Mack

    Normally, I’m thoroughly against the idea of recruiting athletes that are in the seventh grade, but I have to give credit to Chris Mack. On Monday, the Xavier head coach signed 12 year old Trey Couch of Liberty Township to a National Letter of Intent. Couch may be young and it may be against the…

    Sep 23, 2013, 3:14 PM EST

    Eli Carter, Kyle Smyth

    Transfer rules are one of the most hotly debated topics in college basketball during the offseason. Should players be forced to sit out a season if they want to change schools?

    Sep 23, 2013, 1:16 PM EST

    Scott Phillips/NBC Sports

    Cliff Alexander is one of the most sought-after recruits in the country. A 6-foot-8 forward, Alexander is as explosive and powerful as anyone in the Class of 2014. When he dunks, you feel sorry for the rim. When he blocks a shot, he leaves a dent in the basketball. He can scratch his knees without…

    VCU Athletics

    VCU’s basketball program will be getting new uniforms this season. The changes are subtle, but there is one thing that I would have done differently were I the one making the decisions. Why isn’t ‘Havoc’ written on the jerseys somewhere? More than anything, that’s the word that is associated with VCU’s program. It’s written on…
