News/Analysis

  • Performance Versus Expectation — Big East Coaches in the NCAA Tournament: The Big East has taken a lot of criticism for their performance in the NCAA Tournament this season, but how have their coaches done historically. (Villanova by the Numbers)
  • A Man Can Stand Up: “Jon Diebler is, according to Ken Pomeroy, the best offensive player in college basketball. He is hitting an insane 50% of his three point attempts, averaging over 12 points a game, and even making over half of his two point field goals. He is the basketball equivalent of a B-17 bomber, and has on several occasions taken over games entirely by himself. If Ohio State wins a national championship, Jon Diebler will a huge part of the reason why.” (Eleven Warriors)
  • Mizzou Basketball: Coaching Search: A look at the candidates to replace Mike Anderson. (Rock M Nation: Setting the Table, Matt Painter, Brian Gregory, Gregg Marshall, and Scott Sutton)
  • UCLA And What A Down Season At An Elite Program Looks Like: “In recent days people have looked back on the 2010-2011 UCLA basketball season and wondered what we should be expecting from Ben Howland and his Bruin program. At the moment, Howland’s program is not elite. They haven’t made it to the second weekend of the tournament in three seasons now, something that wouldn’t be a huge issue if they hadn’t missed the tournament in that span with a horrid season, gone four years without a Pac-10 title and seen their recruiting momentum sag with a couple glaring holes in the future roster.” (Bruins Nation)
