    The Madness has officially arrived! Can you feel it in the air? I know Marquette can. They lost one of the wilder games you’ll ever see, dropping a double-overtime game to Providence that featured clutch shots, dumb fouls and a 75-foot buzzer-beater that didn’t actually beat any buzzers. That wasn’t the wackiest finish of the…

    North Carolina v Michigan State

    Michigan State dodged a bullet on Saturday. Playing without Gary Harris and Matt Costello and playing with Keith Appling and Adreian Payne at less than 100%, the Spartans shook off a slow start to knock off Oakland, 67-63. Branden Dawson, who may be the only person in East Lansing that isn’t dealing with some kind…

    Travis Bader is a favorite of the folks that write here at College Basketball Talk. We ranked him the No. 69 player in the country. We slotted him as the No. 16 off-guard in the country.

    The high-octane Oakland Grizzlies offense took a hit on Tuesday, as head coach Greg Kampe put out a short, two sentence release announcing that guard Ryan Bass would be leaving the team due to “reasons unrelated to his athletic participation or academic performance.” Bass, a 5-foot-9 senior, averaged 9.3 points and 2.7 assists as a…

    Oakland center Raphael Carter will sit out this season after it was discovered that the 6-foot-9 senior diagnosed with femoral acetabular impingement (FAI), the school announced on Thursday morning. Carter will undergo surgery in December so he won’t miss any class time. “I’m disappointed that we won’t have Raphael (Carter),” said Oakland head coach Greg…

According to KenPom.com, Eastern Michigan’s non-conference strength of schedule was 276 in 2009-10 and 224 in 2010-11, but when Murphy arrived the strength of schedule was 106 in 2011-12 and 108 in…
