    The Izzone Campout is an annual rite of passage at Michigan State.

  5. Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak is Salt Lake City’s newest crimefighter

    Sep 30, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Utah v Oregon - Pac-12 Semifinals

    Larry Krystkowiak, Utah’s head coach, is an intimidating figure. Standing 6-foot-9, Krystkowiak spent a dozen years in the NBA, earning himself a reputation for being a hard-nosed effort guy rather than an uber-talented perennial all-star. He’s not the kind of guy to back down from a confrontation. Over the weekend, “Barney Fife” did just that,…

Kilpatrick’s production opened a door in the form of…

    Criticize Rick Barnes all you want — believe me, the criticism is not unfounded — but the longtime Texas coach has built quite the resume for himself in his time with the Longhorns. He has been the head coach for 15 years, and in his first 14 years earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament…

    Syracuse’s top assistant Mike Hopkins has long been a staple of the offseason rumor mill. When openings come up, Jim Boeheim’s right-hand man hears about them.
