College Basketball

ASU Fans Get Rowdy, Throw Bottles

One of the better college basketball games over the weekend was between Washington State and Arizona State in Tempe. Arizona State led early in the game, but then they got down big in the second half, only to come back and bring it within a point. James Hardin missed his last shot which would’ve given…Read More

NCAA is Right to Investigate OJ Mayo

A lot of people are laughing off the NCAA investigation of USC freshman O.J. Mayo, one of our favorite athletes to be cleared of pot charges, for accepting free tickets to a Nuggets game from his friend Carmelo Anthony. At its most basic level, a friend offered Mayo a small gift and he accepted. If…Read More

Rick Majerus Loves Being Naked

I realize I just set you up as if I had a punchline coming. Sorry to disappoint. There will be no punchline.

He was asked to check into the ballgame, but he really needed to urinate badly. With no time…Read More

Maryland Mascot Getting Bar-Mitvah’d

I guess I’ve completely missed the boat (arc?) on this one. Dan Steinberg of the famed DC Sports Bog passes along news that the Maryland Terps mascot, Testudo, is set to have a Bar Mitzvah in the near future. What I hadn’t realized what that this was a common trend. Per Steinz: In the fall…Read More

Baron Davis Takes Jab at Steve Lavin

As dedicated readers of LBS well know, I am not above expressing my opinions of Steve Lavin. Yes, he’s a nice guy who always treated me well, and he’s a good analyst on TV. But one detail should be understood: he was not a good coach at UCLA. Considering he along with Bob Toledo contributed…Read More
