*College basketball is here (unlike the NBA), and this year might be one of the best in recent memory. The powerhouse is back, while the Cinderellas believe. That’s a deadly combination. We know some of y’all have been asking for some previews. We have you covered – the top 16 teams in the nation will be previewed individually in the next few weeks. After we broke down Vandy on Friday, we’ll keep this going with No. 8-ranked Louisville and No. 6-ranked Duke later today (ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll).* Read More »

After yesterday’s win over Notre Dame in the Big East Tournament, we caught up with Louisville’s sharpshooter, Kyle Kuric, in the locker room. Check out what he had to say.

It’s not that I don’t enjoy the NCAA tournament or the NBA Playoffs, but to me, it doesn’t get better than many of the best teams in the college playing in the biggest city in the country in the World’s Most Famous Arena. Thursday’s games were just more testimony to my already strong beliefs. Here are my awards from Day 3… Read More »
