    It’s easy to forget the lockout casualties when you think about the NBA’s rookie class. We just watched the draft after all, haven’t we seen all of the new guys? Not really. Duke’s Kyle Singler, who fled the shortened NBA season to play in Spain, will be returning to U.S. shores, ready to start his…

Green was named the national player of the year Sunday night by the National Association of Basketball Coaches, preventing Davis from sweeping all the postseason awards in college basketball. There’s little doubt Green was worthy of All-America honors. He…

    Anthony Davis wasn’t a unanimous All-American, but winning the 2012 Naismith Trophy makes him one award shy of a postseason sweep as the unanimous national player of the year. Go figure. Kentucky’s star freshman has now won top honors from the AP, college hoops writers, Sporting News and won the Wooden and Rupp. If he…

    Ryan Kelly might not be Duke’s best player or the flashiest, but he might be its valuable. The junior forward missed the ACC tournament because of a sprained right foot. Without him, the Devils lost to Florida State in the semifinals in a game where they could’ve dearly used Kelly’s 3-point shooting (40.8 percent) and…
