  1. 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...

  4. Expect the expected from ACC newcomers

    Eamonn Brennan

    How do new leagues affect the teams that join them? Are we even sure they do? Take Butler. Last summer, when the Bulldogs left the Horizon League to join the limited-offer-one-time-only 16-team Atlantic-10, the immediate reaction -- that it would ...

  7. Could Alex Len really go No. 1?

    Eamonn Brennan

    I remain unconvinced by the argument that the 2013 draft is historically bereft of talent. I think the meme that has seemingly defined the draft thus far -- that an athletic shot-blocker with a torn ACL (Nerlens Noel) could go No. 1 means the entire ...

  9. Jim Boeheim has Carmelo Anthony's back

    Eamonn Brennan

    New York Knicks forward and perennial NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony is one of Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim's former players, and like most good coaches, Boeheim is loyal to his guys. But Anthony is obviously much more than that. He's the player chiefly ...

  10. Coaches flip on early entry date, kind of

    Eamonn Brennan

    For two years, the NCAA has made -- or tried to make -- college basketball players make the most crucial decision about their professional futures almost comically early. The NCAA used to allow players until June to work out with teams, test the wate...

  11. Shane Larkin learned from Kevin Ware

    Eamonn Brennan

    In general, I'm not a huge believer in the idea that injury worries should be a major factor in most players' NBA draft decisions. Sure, it's always a risk, and it's always easy to favor hindsight if a player is indeed burned by his decision to play ...

  13. Coach K now LeBron's surrogate mentor

    Eamonn Brennan

    When LeBron James was an 18-year-old NBA rookie, he averaged 20.9 points, 5.9 assists and 5.5 rebounds in 39.5 minutes per game. It was by far the worst season of his career -- by the time he was an NBA "sophomore" he was well on his way to putting u...

  15. Brian Zoubek, cream puff connoisseur

    Eamonn Brennan

    When one asks of former college basketball players the question "Where are they now?" one never quite knows what one is going to get. In many cases, the answer is "Europe." Sometimes, it's a generalized "I think he's in the NBA." In the case of forme...

    Eamonn Brennan

    The offseason is rough, but at least we have two things: 1. The NBA Playoffs. 2. Olympic basketball. I realize there are many college hoops fans who have no interest in the pro game, and while I don't understand you lot -- it's really good b...
