    Nov 26, 2012, 9:38 AM EDT

    Elias Harris, Milton Jenings

    Player of the Week: Elias Harris, Gonzaga Harris didn’t put up eye-popping stats this week, as he averaged 18.3 points and 7.7 boards in Gonzaga’s run through the Old Spice Classic down in Orlando. He did, however, look like a first round draft pick as the Bulldog’s knocked off Davidson in the title, game, 81-67.…

  5. College Hoops Week in Review: Five Thoughts

    Nov 12, 2012, 10:27 AM EDT

    Roosevelt Jones, J.J. Moore

    1. Roosevelt Jones, Butler’s playmaker?: The Bulldogs notched a win in their opener on Friday, beating Elon 74-59. Rotnei Clarke and Kellen Dunham were as good as advertised, finishing with a combined 39 points while knocking down eight of their 18 threes. The concern for this group heading into the season, however, was at the…

  7. Is Georges Niang the next Doug McDermott?

    Nov 5, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    GDZCRBXQPOWNQZT.20120920195542

    There’s more to Georges Niang than a basketball jersey and a funny name. The Iowa State freshman wasn’t the biggest man on the Tilton School’s campus as a senior — that title would go to Nerlens Noel, both in height and athletic standing — but he may have been more important. You see, Niang was…

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    A bunch of teams held preseason tune-up exhibition games last night. Not too many stories to come out of the games, so will skip over the recaps and reports. Actually there is one story. The Toilet Paper game took place last night. But that’s about it. (Somewhere Matt Norlander is getting all giddy about writing…

  10. New Mexico’s Jamal Fenton suspended first three games

    Oct 29, 2012, 11:52 PM EDT

    350x19

    New Mexico will be without guard Jamal Fenton for the first three regular season games after he was suspended by the NCAA for minor rules violations. Fenton reportedly violated NCAA rules due to accepting some impermissible benefits. The 5-11, 170-pound senior averaged 6.5 points per game in 2011-12. The Houston native didn’t play a ton last…

    Roy Williams

    Roy Williams’ North Carolina Tar Heels will begin the season just outside the Top 10 and after their 81-54 exhibition win over D-II Shaw Friday night, they are looking forward to their season opener in less than two weeks. The Tar Heels started off slow, beginning the game 3-of-13 from the floor and even trailing…

    Men's Basketball Team 2007

    ARLINGTON, Va – Recruiting is a fickle science. As much as any coach or recruiting pundit wants to claim that they can watch an AAU game and pick out who will be the best collegiate players, so much of a program’s recruiting success can come down to dumb luck. Were you in the gym on…

    Circle these dates on the calendar: Jan. 26 and Feb. 23.

On Friday, following practice, Strickland told Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports that he didn’t think too highly…

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Detroit v Kansas

    The Horizon league has been on a kick to simplify the naming system employed by the league. With household name Butler gone to the A-10, now’s as good a time as any to make things user-friendly. One school has been way out ahead of the naming trend, however. The school we know as simply Detroit…

    Hofstra will begin their season a bit short-handed. A pair of high-major transfers — Taran Buie from Penn State and Jamal Coombs-McDaniel from UConn — have been suspended. Buie, who averaged 5.8 points two years ago, and Coombs-McDaniel, who averaged 5.6 points for the Huskies as a sophomre, will both miss the season’s first two…

  21. Is North Carolina the best fit for Noah Vonleh?

    Sep 28, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    ack0259

    Monday, New Hampton forward Noah Vonleh didn’t shock many when he decided to reclassify and join the class of 2013. Vonleh, considered a top prospect in the class of 2014, didn’t really hurt himself by the grade change, as he is still consensus top-10 player. Vonleh holds offers from Arizona, UConn, Boston College, Kansas, Ohio…

  22. Michigan State freshman Kenny Kaminski undergoes shoulder surgery, will miss 4-6 months

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    Michigan State Spartans head coach Tom Izzo looks up at the clock as they play the Louisville Cardinals in the NCAA men's West Regional basketball tournament in Phoenix

    Tom Izzo’s Michigan State Spartans lost some depth on their bench Monday, as it was announced that freshman forward Kenny Kaminski underwent shoulder surgery and would miss 4-6 months. The injury and time required to recover means Kaminski will likely redshirt this season, leaving him with four full years of eligibility when he is healthy.…

    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…

    UCLA v Arizona - Quarterfinals

    UCLA has quite a bit of hype heading into this season. That’s what will happen when you bring in a recruiting class that includes two of the country’s consensus top three players. Me? I’m not buying it. Never have. There are a litany of problems with the Bruins, ranging from overweight centers to pieces that…
