Should College Basketball Change the Free Throw Substitution Rule?

The ending to the Missouri/Marquette game on Sunday was exciting, albeit slightly suspect. With the game tied at 79 in the final minute, J.T. Tiller of Missouri got fouled. He apparently landed on his wrist, making him “unable” to shoot the free throws because of the injury. Per NCAA rules, Missou coach Mike Anderson was…Read More

Greivis Vasquez: Memphis Would Have Losing Record in ACC

That CBI Tournament Sure Is a Major Draw for Schools

However, the case of Binghamton junior guard Emanuel Mayben seems to be quite the paradox; Mayben’s goatee…Read More

CBS’ New Design Defeats the Purpose of the Boss Button

I’m lucky enough to work in a field where my job is to watch, study, analyze, and report on games. For most of the world unfortunately, it’s a different story. It’s pretty common knowledge that countless hours and dollars of work productivity are lost during March Madness because every breathing sports fan is huddled over…Read More

Conference Tournament Results Weighed Too Heavily on Tourney Seedings

I’m not a fan of conference tournaments for several reasons. For starters, it cheapens the regular season. Think about the smaller conferences that don’t get at-large bids — Weber State for instance goes 15-1 in the Big Sky but loses in the conference tourney and goes home. Davidson was 18-2 in Southern Conference play, but…Read More
