  4. ACC's shot clock experiment: Why not?

    Eamonn Brennan

    The NBA installed a 24-second shot clock in 1954. It took men's college basketball another 30 years -- until 1985 -- to follow suit. Decades of painful stalling strategy would have seemed to make the shot clock a no-brainer, but the college game p...

  5. Look back, look ahead: WCC

    Eamonn Brennan

    In 2008, Jamie Zaninovich became the commissioner of the West Coast Conference. At the time it would have been just as easy, and only slightly less accurate, to call Zaninovich the boss of "whatever league Gonzaga plays in." By 2008, the Zags had w...

    Eamonn Brennan

    So, here's a funny story: On Wednesday, a man didn't want to talk to the media. When this man did talk to the media, he talked about how he didn't want to talk to the media. The rest of the hour, he stood in silence. This was, by nearly any metric,...

    Eamonn Brennan
