    Nov 18, 2012, 1:42 AM EDT

    Abdul Gaddy

    UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Senior point guard Abdul Gaddy had made a career out of being a pretty good point guard for the Washington Huskies.

    Dan Hurley

    UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Danny Hurley knew that he’d have an uphill battle when he took over for Jim Baron at Rhode Island. Forget, for a second, the fact that the Rams are coming off of a season where they managed to win just seven games, because that would just be too obvious. Maybe the fact…

    Chris Fouch

    The Drexel Dragons were the preseason pick to not only repeat as CAA regular season champions, but to also be a team that few teams would want to draw as their opposition in the NCAA tournament. But the Dragons have gotten off to a slow start of sorts, losing their first two games of the…

    Alex Oriakhi

    Alex Oriakhi was part of the mass exodus from Connecticut after a postseason ineligibility ruling from the NCAA. He landed in Missouri and, after Friday’s win over Nicholl’s State, it looks like Oriakhi is settling in nicely with coach Frank Haith and the Tigers. Oriakhi had a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds in…

    Archie Goodwin, Jack Detmer

    We all knew coming in to the season that the Kentucky Wildcats, while sloppy at first, would be fun to watch. Through the first three games of the season, they’ve put on three highly-entertaining performances and displayed numerous highlight reel plays. A week ago, walk-on sophomore Jarrod Polson stole the show en route to a…

    Nov 16, 2012, 11:38 PM EDT

    Indiana State v UCLA

    I had UCLA ranked 25th in the preseason. That was well below where everyone else had them. My thinking? The pieces didn’t fit for the Bruins. Their point guard play was reliant up a 6-foot-9 freshman, Kyle Anderson, nicknamed ‘slo-mo’ and a guy that flamed out at North Carolina, Larry Drew II, in about as…

    After a narrow 65-62 win over Oregon State last night at Madison Square Garden, Alabama’s backcourt combo of Trevor Releford and Rodney Cooper knew what to expect against Villanova’s young point guard Ryan Arcidiacono. “We wanted to blitz him because he’s a great guard, so we wanted to limit his open looks,” said Cooper.
