  10. Josh Newkirk commits to Pitt, foreshadows success recruiting in ACC?

    Sep 19, 2012, 8:03 PM EST

    Jamie Dixon

    Jamie Dixon has landed the second member of his 2013 recruiting class, a Josh Newkirk officially committed to Pitt on Wednesday evening. Evan Daniels of Scout.com was the first I saw to report the news. Newkirk is a nice addition for Dixon. A 6-foot-2, 175 pound point guard, Newkirk is a quick and explosive point…

    Sep 18, 2012, 2:28 PM EST

    Scott Drew

    Scott Drew grabbed his first commitment from the Class of 2014 Monday, as Memphis native Leron Black pledged his named to Baylor, according to John Martin of the Commercial Appeal.

  12. Debate!: Who you got? Lute Olson or Jim Calhoun

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:05 AM EST

    200249331-001

    In 2008, Lute Olson retired from coaching at the ripe old age of 74, having spent the past 25 years taking Arizona from a West Coast afterthought and turning them into a national championship program that was a mainstay in the top 25 through the majority of his tenure. Just four years later, Jim Calhoun…

    All this week at CBT, we’ll be spotlighting the top players at each position for the 2012 NBA draft. Monday featured the top point guards; Tuesday was the shooting guards. Today? The small forwards. 1. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kentucky Despite not being the focal point of Kentucky’s national championship team, Kidd-Gilchrist is another example of Calipari’s…

  15. Brett Favre is texting Donnie Tyndall?

    May 15, 2012, 6:11 PM EST

    Murray St Morehead St Basketball

    Donnie Tyndall had an impressive run in his time as the head coach at Morehead State. After going 12-18 over all and 8-12 in the Ohio Valley Conference in his first season with the Eagles, Tyndall never again finished below .500 for the season — a fairly impressive feat for a team that makes up…

  17. Comparing Kentucky to other champs who replaced everything

    Apr 18, 2012, 4:25 PM EST

    spt-120417-floridaold

    Now the all five of Kentucky’s underclassmen stars are officially headed to the NBA (along with senior Darius Miller), it’s time to marvel at the production coach John Calipari must now replace. Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, Marquis Teague and Miller represented93 percent of the Wildcats’ scoring, 94 percent of their rebounds,…

  18. Thomas Robinson had the easiest early entry decision to date

    Apr 13, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    As a junior, Thomas Robinson grew from a high-volume, higher-energy reserve into arguably the nation’s most productive and competitive front court player. There is a reason that he was the first consensus first-team AP All-American since Blake Griffin. Anthony Davis can’t even make that claim. As good as Robinson was, his potential as an NBA…

  19. How do other hauls compare to Kentucky’s recent classes?

    Apr 12, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    spt-120411-unc

    Some things never change. Kentucky landed 2012’s top prospect in Nerlens Noel Wednesday night, a move that’ll almost certainly give the Wildcats the top-rated recruiting class in college basketball. Consider coach John Calipari four-for-four while in Lexington. (He’s not done yet, either. Power forward Anthony Bennett, another 5-star player, is considering Kentucky, as are 5-star…

  20. Coach Cal strikes again: Noel makes Kentucky a favorite in ’13

    Apr 11, 2012, 10:17 PM EST

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    Think about this: prior to Wednesday night’s recruiting special where Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad announced where they will be spending one season before heading to the NBA, John Calipari already had signed three recruits that would likely make up the best recruiting class any coach in the country had ever put together. Archie Goodwin…

    Apr 10, 2012, 8:39 AM EST

    spt-120409-drummond

    Today’s the NCAA’s deadline for college basketball players to remove their name from the NBA draft. Not that it matters. As Rob Dauster noted last week, this deadline doesn’t mean players have to decide if they’re going pro by the end of the day. They actually have until April 29 – the NBA’s deadline to…

  22. With talented trio to NBA, Heels await McAdoo’s decision

    spt-120329-mcadoo

    For the third time since 2005, the bulk of North Carolina’s roster is headed to the NBA. But this is the first time those players left without a title. Underclassmen Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall all declared for the NBA draft, meaning the Tar Heels will lose four starters (counting senior Tyler Zeller)…

  23. Rick Pitino learning he can change, still find success

    Mar 29, 2012, 1:01 PM EST

    Rick Pitino, Russ Smith

    On the surface, Rick Pitino is a bad man. He dresses slick, is incredibly sarcastic with the media and rarely wastes an opportunity to use punishment as a teaching opportunity. It’s this approach that makes him one of the more recognizable, if not best, head coaches of the past 25 years. But if there’s one thing…

    Screen Shot 2012-03-28 at 6.44.56 PM

    Success came a year early for Mark Gottfried at North Carolina State. As critics debated whether the coach was a good fit for the Wolfpack, Gottfried led his team to the Sweet 16 and did one other thing: lock up a stellar recruiting class. That three-man class will be on display tonight in Chicago, as…
