Wed, 03/31/2010 - 7:13pm
Columbus, Ohio – The West squad led by MVP Harrison Barnes 18 points was able to edge the East for a 107-104 victory on a last second Brandon Knight three-pointer to claim the 2010 McDonald’s All-American game.  Knight, the Gatorade Player of the Year, was off most of the night before hitting the clutch shot in the closing seconds.  East MVP Jared Sullinger had a great night with 22 points to lead all scorers as he impressed the hometown crowd in Value City Arena, which will be his home court next year when he suits up for the Buckeyes.

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.

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: 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.

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.
