  4. Weekend homework: Louisville-Cincy, Part 2

  11. Wiggins should play like Parker

    Myron Medcalf

    There were moments of excellence for Andrew Wiggins in the Battle 4 Atlantis. Blips of excellence, really. Not enough for a player who could have been the No. 1 pick in last summer's NBA draft. The No. 1 recruit in America can't be ordinary. An...

  12. Memphis must regroup, build chemistry

    Myron Medcalf

    Last week, I talked to Memphis coach Josh Pastner about the state of his program. He was hopeful. He had every reason to be. The addition of Michael Dixon Jr. to a veteran backcourt solidified the most important element of his program. And his thi...
