  2. Colorado's genius attendance arbitrage

    Eamonn Brennan

    Let's face it, women's basketball games are not well-attended. That is not necessarily an indictment of women's basketball. After all, plenty of collegiate events suffer attendance issues, issues that span gender and type. No one would argue that ...

  4. Nebraska changing hoops home atmosphere

    Eamonn Brennan

  7. 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...

  8. Planning for Success: Enter the Octagon

    Eamonn Brennan

    Saturday turned insane late, and for reasons only tangentially related to basketball. But before that, it was a pretty standard day of basketball. Boring, even. There weren't many great games, and there weren't many big surprises, and thus Kansas Sta...

  12. Weekend Homework: Zags' thin margin

    Eamonn Brennan

    There are lots of ways to play offense in the game of basketball, countless characteristics on which to hang one's proverbial hat. Few are as pure and pleasurable as Gonzaga's. The Bulldogs play fast, decisive, intelligent offensive basketball. Th...

  14. Iowa State's win is Iowa's squandered shot

    Eamonn Brennan
