Inside the College Game | 5 Things We Learned

Mon, 03/29/2010 - 10:03am

The Final Four matchups are set. But what did we learn this past weekend?

1. Kentucky never really came together this year.

DeMarcus CousinsDeMarcus CousinsThere's such a thing as a cold shooting night, but this was a bit much. How do you hold a team without a 2-point field goal for an entire half, and trail in that half 28-26? Kentucky did that to start Sunday's loss to West Virginia.

NBA Draft: Stock Watch

On Tuesday we presented our Stock Watch "casualties". With the Sweet 16 set to begin tonight, here is part two, the "survivors", prospects who have helped and hurt themselves over the first two rounds and still have a chance to impact their draft stock.


Sweet 16 Preview: South Region

Was St. Mary's win against Villanova shocking to anyone? The Gaels have played tremendous basketball lately, the Wildcats were in the midst of their worst stretch of the season. While they slipped by Robert Morris in the first round, it was only a matter of time.

Sweet 16 Preview: East Region

Wed, 03/24/2010 - 2:37pm

As we prepare for the second weekend of March Madness, one thing has become abundantly clear: There are a handful of top echelon teams --- and everybody else. For a lucid snapshot of the current college hoops landscape, look no further than the East Region. The two top dogs, Kentucky and West Virginia are still standing, but the rest of the bracket has been decimated.

Sweet 16 Preview: Midwest Region

Tue, 03/23/2010 - 11:01pm
As a believer in accountability, the first step here is to discuss why Kansas will not be winning the Midwest Region in this year's NCAA Tournament, as I've been projecting since Cole Aldrich decided to return to school about 11 months ago. The Jayhawks dragged their feet. They didn't make in-game adjustments until it was too late. And they threw up far, far, far too many 3-pointers in a game where that might have been their only disadvantage. Kansas could have won a national championship. Bill Self deserves the blame more than anyone for why they didn't.

Sweet 16 Preview: West Region

After watching the first 2 rounds of this year's NCAA Tournament, it's almost a surprise that Syracuse and Kansas State are still alive for the Sweet 16. Despite all the mighty underdogs and wild upsets, the Orange are living up to their top seed status after pouncing on Vermont and Gonzaga, while Kansas State has quietly demonstrated it could be a viable Final Four candidate.

NBA Draft: Stock Watch

Mon, 03/22/2010 - 8:58pm
After one of the most exciting first weekends of the NCAA Tournament in recent memory, including numerous buzzer beaters and close games, we've got a three day break to catch our breath. Let's take a look at the prospects that have have helped and hurt their draft stock during the first weekend.

I've decided to split the Stock Watch up into two parts. The "casualties", players whose teams have been eliminated. And the "survivors", players whose teams are still alive. Here is part one, the casualties.

The road doesn't end with a Korie Lucious 3-pointer. The journey is only beginning when Ali Farokhmanesh calmly knocks down the three biggest shots in Northern Iowa history. The wheels are just starting to spin as Chris Kramer drops a gorgeous, scooping layup.
