College basketball coaches are far from composed, patient and quiet individuals but because of the nature of their profession, they must remain in such a state in order to guarantee long-term stability in a profession that has very little of it. Following Duke’s win on Monday evening, diehard college hoops fans have seven long months
Willie Cauley-Stein is enjoying the temporary perks of the unfortunate ending to his season. The ankle injury he suffered in Kentucky’s Sweet Sixteen victory over Louisville turned into an ankle surgery a few days ago. Possibly due to the injury, Cauley-Stein also withdrew his name from this year’s loaded NBA draft pool of prospects; a draft
The band U2 is fresh off releasing their new song “Invisible,” which was featured on an ad during the Super Bowl and are busy gearing up to release their new album this spring. However U2 frontman made time to take a photo with the entire Creighton basketball team at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. Standing
Freshman basketball sensation Andrew Wiggins drained a half-court buzzer-beating shot to end the first half of Kansas’ game on Tuesday night at Baylor. Stunningly, those were the only three points Wiggins had in the first half, but swishing a half-court buzzer-beater may just get his confidence going. The No. 8 Jayhawks would improve their first-place
The Arizona Wildcats’ magical 20 straight unbeaten streak is over at the hands of Cal guard Justin Cobbs. With the game tied at 58, Cobb nailed an 18-foot fall-away buzzer-beating jumper that would ignite the rowdy sold-out crowd at Haas Pavilion.

White people are known for certain attributes such as finding really good sales at J.C. Penney’s and making delicious and fun cake pops. However jumping ability is a rare quality that escapes most Caucasians, but not Grayson Allen. The very talented 6’4″ shooting guard who will attend Duke next year has got some hops. Grayson
Syracuse pounded Indiana by the score of 69-52 last night at the Carrier Dome, but Troy Williams provided one lone bright spot for the Hoosiers. Williams jumped over everybody for this vicious put-back dunk.
No. 15 Florida (6-1) squeaked by Florida State on Friday by the score of 67-66. They won in a large part from forward Casey Prather who led all scorers with 19 points. However none of his points were as exciting as this twisting, high-flying alley-oop dunk off the assist from Scottie Wilbekin.
Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart connected from way, way, way downtown on Monday night against South Florida. The highly touted sophomore swished this 65-foot bomb just as time expired in the first half. Smart finished with 25 points, four assists and four steals. The fantastic fling proved to be unnecessary as Oklahoma State routed
What separates the really good players from the great players is desire and Jabari Parker seems like he has it. The standout Duke freshman has all-world talent, but on Tuesday night he showed he is willing to put forth the effort. The 6’8″ Parker grabbed the rebound and then took it the entire length of
It was the first meeting between Viginia and VCU since the 1998-99 season and it was worth the wait. In the closing seconds VCU’s Treveon Graham drained a silly three to give VCU a 59-56 victory.
