Dime Q&A: Peyton Siva Talks NCAA Tournament, His First Year In The NBA & More

Peyton Siva, Louisville Cardinals

Selection Sunday lays the blueprint for the coming battles. Contending teams wait anxiously to see who they will be tested against first, and who they may face in future weekends if they advance. Bubble teams pray quietly, hoping for an invitation to the dance. On the eve of this fantastic event and at the conclusion of the selection process, I had the opportunity to speak to a former NCAA champion. Peyton Siva has gone through it all: The two-time Big East Champion and NCAA Tournament MVP completed his college career winning a National Championship with Louisville last year. I had a chance to get his initial thoughts on this year’s tournament and their selection process, along with some of his previous college exploits. Read More »

There are a lot of things you could say about the Knicks effort, or their woeful opening to the season, but instead we’re just going to show you Amar’e Stoudemire forget for a moment he’s on a basketball court.

Dime Q&A: Peyton Siva Talks Horse Racing, His NBA Future & Rick Pitino’s Tattoo

Peyton Siva

By now everybody knows about the magical run Louisville made to the NCAA title this year. A preseason favorite to win it all, the Cards won the Big East title before winning the whole thing in dramatic fashion.

Trey Burke’s Nasty Rejection Of Peyton Siva: Foul Or No Foul?

Peyton Siva is surely happy they blew the whistle. Us? Not so much. Read More »

Final Four Breakdown: Why Louisville Will Beat Wichita State

The Missouri Valley Conference is certainly not one of those conferences. It’s rare that we get a David and Goliath matchup during the Final Four. However, the Wichita State Shockers go into this weekend’s play as a No. 9 seed, joining an unlikely group of mid-major Final Four participants (George Mason in 2006, VCU and Butler in 2011 and Penn in 1979) that made history.
