That’s when Texas sophomore center Cameron Ridley grabbed the ball and put it off the glass for the first buzzer-beater of the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Read More »

Valparaiso

The Madness is officially underway. The first round–or “First Four”–is done and over with and we now have a set field of 64 teams who one way or another have proven they are worthy to be part of the NCAA tournament.

Russ Smith

The five teams below are all schools having very good seasons but each has flaws that should come into consideration when filling out your bracket. Read More »

The last time we were supposed to have some type of world basketball tour, we had denials and confirmations, we had a long list of All-Stars agreeing on playing, we had a schedule and we had the first night all planned out.
