You’ll have assistants who work specifically with the guards, wings or big men, but rarely will an assistant be assigned…

    There was a time in college basketball when a coach wouldn’t dream of entrusting his team to a freshman point guard. That time has passed, and we’re in the era of the one-and-done player who tends to get his playing time right away. Maryland freshman Roddy Peters may not be the second coming of John…

    I had forgotten that there is such a thing as a homecoming court, but at Louisville, where the reigning national champs reside, it’s quite possible that a Cardinals basketball player will supplement his national title ring with some more bling: a homecoming crown.
