    I love this. Billy Baron, the star point guard for Canisius, is so calm and poised. You have no idea how much time is left in this game. He knows exactly what he wants to do this entire time, and he does it with deadly accuracy. It’s a lot more nonchalant than his last buzzer-beater.…

    Aaron Craft’s roommates started a twitter account last season called @CRAFTroomies where they document what life is like living with an all-american basketball player who just so happens to be an academic all-american as well.
