    About a month ago, we wrote about a nine-year old from Missouri named Joshua Brown. Joshua has a brain tumor, and through the Friends of Jaclyn program, he’s become close with the St. Louis basketball team. He goes to the games, he hangs out with the players, and he’s been adopted by the team as…

  7. Miami’s new slogan is not the best we’ve ever seen

    Jim Larranaga

    Miami’s basketball program has made it. For the entirety of their existence, The U has been a football school first and a baseball school second. Basketball was a non-entity. For more than a decade during the 70’s and 80’s, that was literal, as the school cut the hoops program. But after becoming the first team…

    North Carolina State v Duke

    There will never be a definitive answer to what the question ‘What is the greatest rivalry in all of sports?’, but one thing that is undeniable is that Duke and North Carolina have to be present in that conversation.

    Feb 13, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT


    Duke and North Carolina have one of the coolest traditions in college hoops. Every year, the night before the first of their two head-to-head matchups, the team managers play.

  10. Nerlens Noel’s knee injury and the unfairness of the ‘one-and-done’ rule

    Feb 13, 2013, 9:22 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    As of this morning, we don’t know the severity of the knee injury that Nerlens Noel, Kentucky’s star center and a likely candidate for the No. 1 pick in this June’s NBA Draft, suffered at Florida last night. What we do know is that knees aren’t supposed to bend sideways to a 90-degree angle, and…

    GRUESOME INJURY ALERT! Kentucky’s Nerlen Noel, the likely No.1 draft pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, suffered a gruesome knee injury last night. Don’t worry.

  13. What does it mean for Kentucky if Noel is out for a long time?

    Feb 13, 2013, 12:21 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    That’s all it took. An awkward landing after an ugly possession, a knee that buckled when an freak of an athlete got his left foot jammed on the basket support while running at full-speed, and Kentucky has gone from a potentially dangerous lower seed to a team that seems destined for the NIT. That’s how…

    Feb 12, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

    Trey Burke, Keith Appling

    I don’t like to overreact to the outcome of a single game. I don’t like to make blanket statements about a team based on the way that one matchup plays out. Over the course of a 35 game season, there are going to be nights were teams don’t show up. Maybe three starters are in…

    Kentucky Wildcats v Florida Gators

    The story of Tuesday night’s matchup between No. 7 Florida and No. 25 Kentucky is the left knee of Nerlens Noel. He hurt it. It looked bad. He was carried off the floor.
