Athlon's College Basketball Predictions

Last week I took a look at what Lindy’s College Basketball preview had to say. Sure some of the information might be outdated, but I think it’s still worth checking out what people are thinking with the college basketball season a little over 1.5 months away. As with the last post here’s everything related to... Read more »

Great West Conference has an automatic bid

To the CIT. Obviously no one expects the GWC, Chicago State’s current home, to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament anytime soon. (Though Rush the Court could see it happening by 2020.) Still, it was nice of the Great West and the Post-Season Tournament to get together and give the seven teams... Read more »

Northwestern is Interesting!

Michael “Juice” Thompson and the Wildcats are a team to watch this season. Remember when I tried to explain that Northwestern basketball really wasn’t boring? And that people should watch? While now there’s justification from The Dagger (a Yahoo! sports blog) which named the Wildcats the 62nd “most interesting” team in the country. They’ve got... Read more »

Jershon Cobb commits to Northwestern

There are going to be a full slate of links sometime later in the day, but the big news is that yesterday it was announced that Northwestern had received a strong verbal commitment from shooting guard Jershon Cobb out of Decatur, Georgia. Cobb is rated a 4-star prospect by Rivals and has an 88 overall... Read more »

DePaul, Memphis and the Big East

The big news this week in the incredibly overblown story of Big East expansion is Memphis hiring former Big East commissioner Mike Tranghese. Yes, this is huge news. It means that the Tigers now have a pretty easy way into the Big East – or at least that’s what everybody seems to think. It was... Read more »

East Coast Bias - Big East Roundtable

Pico Dulce at the East Coast Bias is putting together a Big East basketball roundtable with a number of bloggers from around the conference. The full summation of everyone’s opinions will be online sometime shortly, but since greyCat over at Villanova By the Numbers, Chris at I Bleed Blue and White, and Black and Green... Read more »

Northwestern schedule designed for NCAA berth

Northwestern announced its 2009-10 mens basketball schedule on Monday. It’s a schedule designed to get the Wildcats into the NCAA Tournament. There is great potential here for the victories needed to get Northwestern to the Big Dance. There are 13 non-conference games on the schedule. There is one game that – against Butler at Welsh-Ryan... Read more »
