Pac 12 Conference Preview

Thu, 11/08/2012 - 6:42pm

The Pac 12 has been down for a few years now, but last year was historically bad. Only two teams (Cal and Colorado) made the NCAA tournament with both being double digit seeds.

Colorado did pull off an upset win in the tourney and Stanford did save some face by winning the NIT.

Sophomore Rankings Updated

Tue, 10/30/2012 - 6:06pm

The 2012 Draft featured eight members of the 2015 NCAA graduating class. Despite that, a case could be made that the sophomore class is the most talent laden in all of college. Last year's draft had 13 players who had just completed their sophomore season, pointing to players making a nice turn in their development with a tad more seasoning. This year's sophomore class has some solid returnees who would have undoubtedly been top draft picks.

Freshman Rankings: Class of 2016

Sat, 09/29/2012 - 5:53pm

Before the concept of guaranteed rookie contracts came into existence in 1995, freshmen were seen as players who usually had a lot of growth in front of them at the college level. The NBA Draft changed forever in that fateful year and now with the "one year out of high school" rule, these first year players are usually seen as the cream of the crop of possible draftees. Since the rule came into place in 2007, we have seen 5 out of 6 #1 picks having just finished their first year of college, with sophomore Blake Griffin being the exception in 2009.
