This year, the NCAA tournament was special and was nothing short of amazing. From heartbreakers, thrillers, dances and game-winners, this tournament had it all.

The 15 Biggest X-Factors In College Basketball This Season

Jahii Carson

What’s an x-factor? An x-factor is a player that does all the dirty work, the little things, the stuff that won’t necessarily get you on highlight reels but will inevitably get you Ws. It could be a player who emerges from nowhere, without any type of recognition, and becomes one of those names that gets bolded on the opposing team’s scouting report. Read More »

2010-11 Dime/2K Sports High School All-American Team

Austin Rivers

It’s tough to honestly pick an All-American team. Gone are the days when so much of the nation’s high school basketball talent was concentrated in major cities like New York, L.A., Chicago and Philly – now the game is everywhere, with superstars coming out of small Midwestern towns, previously overlooked Northwest suburbs and the football territories of the Deep South, to name a few. So even in an era where YouTube highlights and regular national TV broadcasts allow more people to see more high school stars outside their own area code, the sheer volume of quality players spread around the map can be overwhelming. As a result, hype and reputation play too much of a role in determining who gets what awards and honors, and people make lazy picks, sometimes without even having seen a kid play. Read More »

Think again. While there are still some outstanding players who might commit to the Wildcats for next year, Calipari is focusing his attention on the Class of 2012. Read More »

Elite 24

When I was out in LA this past weekend, I got a call from my girl Crystal Howard at ESPN PR asking if I’d be interested in coming to watch a secret midnight run at MSG with all the kids from Elite 24. Let’s just say it didn’t take long to accept.
