    I like stats as much as anyone. I love diving into box scores and breaking down who did what and why is had a certain effect on the outcome of a game and whether or night it’s a sign of a bigger trend. I spend more time on Kenpom.com than I do on any other…

    Virginia Commonwealth and Butler have taken the biggest share of the national spotlight of teams in the Atlantic 10 this season. Newcomers to the league having so much success and finding their way in the national polls will do that. But with first place in the conference (at least for the time being) on the…

    Keith Appling

    There is a reason Keith Appling is a captain on this Michigan State basketball team.

    130219-oladipo.standard

    First, it was Duke’s rise to No. 1 after their terrific run through the non-conference schedule. Then, it was the cavalcade of suitors for the top spot — Louisville, Duke again, Kansas, even Florida tossed themselves in the mix — that took turns using a few first-place votes as motivation for a losing streak. Next…

    Andy Kennedy is a smart man. He knows what Marshall Henderson does for his program.

    Feb 19, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Miami Duke

    Perhaps more than any season in recent memory, the top teams in the country have taken so brutal poundings this season.

    Brandon Paul, Trevor Mbakwe

    The turnaround Illinois has made over the course of the last two weeks is one of the more shocking developments in a season where nothing should come as a surprise.
