The 10 Biggest Upsets in NCAA Tournament History

Missouri

This is why we watch.

The Madness received its nickname from the craziness that surrounds the NCAA tournament. While millions of confident fans predict brackets, there are almost always multiple cross-outs and red “Xs” by the tournament’s end (and usually well before). These are due to the numerous upsets that occur in the tournament each year. Underdogs beat favorites and even become “Cinderella” stories on some occasions, making for some of the most memorable sports moments of all time. Read More »

The Last 8 Teams In And Out Of The NCAA Tournament

Marcus Smart

It’s very early to tell what bubble teams will prove worthy of making the NCAA Tournament but some teams have better opportunities than others. Of course, there is always the chance an underdog team shocks everyone and wins their conference tournament, resulting in a bid being taken away from one of the bubble teams. But below is a list of teams that I think will play their way into the NCAA Tournament, as well as four teams that will be accepting an invitation to the NIT. Read More »

15 Colleges That Produce The Best NBA Players

Vince Carter

With All-Stars like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard running the league from an attention standpoint, it’s hard to argue that high schoolers can’t make the successful jump to the NBA. Even international players like Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have had Hall of Fame careers after coming to the states. Read More »

2013 NBA Draft: Washington Selects Otto Porter Jr. With The No. 3 Pick

Otto Porter Jr.

3. Washington: Otto Porter – Georgetown 6-8, SF 19 years old, Sophomore

This one makes sense, both in fit and in talent. Porter Jr. is an improved shooter who can play defense. As a legitimate small forward, he now gives John Wall two outside options, along with Bradley Beal. He’s not a tremendous athlete, but just as Tayshaun Prince was, he doesn’t have to be. He’s 6-8 or 6-9 and has a long wingspan. Read More »

Is Otto Porter Jr. Going To Be A Suped-Up Version Of Tayshaun Prince? These 5 Highlight Videos Say Yes

Otto Porter Jr.

With the most “NBA Ready” arsenal at his disposal, coupled with the notion that he’s “the best small forward in Big East history,” Otto Porter Jr. has a lot to prove. Even though he silenced most of the haters and naysayers during his dominant sophomore season at Georgetown, where he averaged 16.2 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 31 games, there needs to be a translation on the NBA level.

Georgetown Goes Down In Major Upset; Tony Parker Is Back

Marshall Henderson

New Mexico, move over. You have company. As bad as our brackets were screwed by Harvard on Thursday (and two people in the Dime clan had the Lobos going to at least the Final Four), the Hoyas might’ve done even more damage … Read More »

Jordan Brand Laces Georgetown, UNC & Cal With Crazy Melo M9s & AJXX8s For March Madness

Air Jordan XX8 "Georgetown"

Every year, the NCAA Tournament brings with it expected outcomes… and not so expected ones (sorry to anyone who picked New Mexico to go to the Final Four. *Gulp* Me…). But we always know Georgetown, UNC and Cal are going to get laced with some ridiculous heat from Jordan Brand. This year is no exception. Read More »

The Knicks Get Terrible News; The NBA’s Most Underrated Big Man

J.R. Smith

With New York mourning the 16th anniversary (are we really that old?) of the death of Biggie Smalls yesterday, the Knicks gave the city something to celebrate. But fittingly, on this day, they also announced another injury to a major star, one that might murder the rest of his season … J.R. Smith had 24 points, and Steve Novak added another 20 off the pine in New York’s 29-point dismantling of Utah, a game that was never close after the first quarter. Read More »

Dwyane Wade Passes A Scoring Milestone; An Indiana All-Star Makes His Season Debut

Dwyane Wade

Without drama, how can you even get excited? That’s how we felt watching the Heat roll over Philly last night, doing it so effortlessly in the second half that not even Andrew Bynum‘s new haircut could get us going. In the Heat’s 114-90 win, the third quarter wasn’t even fair. Miami hit the hosts with a 15-3 run, and had LeBron (16 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists) and Dwyane Wade (33 points) rolling: making the extra pass, hitting from midrange, the entire offense flowed like water.
