  8. The case for and against five NCAA 'snubs'

    Eamonn Brennan

    Say this for the NCAA: When it expanded the tournament to 68 teams, it accomplished at least one thing. It made your argument invalid. Once the province of outrage and disgust, the post-tournament bracket digestion process has become downright ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern's student section T-shirt slogan -- "Make Shots" -- isn't just dry-witted and cliche-free. It's also pretty solid basketball advice. Fitting, then, that these Northwestern Wildcats have to follow it so closely. When ...

    Eamonn Brennan
