  1. Kansas finds a leader in Frank Mason III

    Myron Medcalf

    AUSTIN, Texas -- Forget the layup and focus on its meaning for Kansas and sophomore Frank Mason III, the solemn, tattooed leader the program needs. The Jayhawks. On the road. Facing a Texas team that had whipped them by double digits a year ago in...

  2. Weekend Predictions: Kansas falls in Austin

    Myron Medcalf

    I think Meat Loaf once said, "Three out of five ain't bad." And after last weekend's run, I kind of believe him. I had no business picking Michigan State to beat the Maryland "Real Deal" Terrapins. Mark Turgeon's squad is legit. And Texas showe...

  4. Penn State's most popular fan? Flavor Flav

    Myron Medcalf

    The beauty of Flavor Flav is that he's actually more of a concept than a rapper. We didn't really know his purpose in Public Enemy, but we left him alone because he was Chuck D's homeboy. The giant clocks, the random "Booyyy!!!" chants, the certif...

  5. Weekend Predictions: Duke finds its swagger

    Myron Medcalf

    C'mon, man. Really, Louisville? Great effort and all, but the Cardinals weren't concerned about my predictions. Not a great stretch for me. One of the worst, actually. North Carolina beat Louisville on Marcus Paige's clutch shot late. Vir...

  6. Kentucky Flex Zone: $800K on Bahamas trip

    Myron Medcalf

    That whole "Go big or go home" thing? Kentucky lives by it. Proof? The Wildcats spent nearly $800,000 on their preseason exhibition trip to the Bahamas. The Louisville Courier-Journal reported Thursday that Kentucky paid for its own expenses, a...

  9. Kansas' Kelly Oubre, Cliff Alexander continue to grow

    Myron Medcalf

    The most recent time Kansas failed to win a share of the Big 12 title -- 2004 -- the "Notebook" and "Mean Girls" dominated the box office. Usher, Lil' Jon and Ludacris topped the charts with their club hit "Yeah." The Janet Jackson wardrobe malfuncti...

  10. Anthony Davis guarantees Kentucky national title

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, this won't take any pressure off No. 1 Kentucky. Former Wooden Award winner and NBA superstar Anthony Davis, who led the Wildcats to the 2011-12 national title, guaranteed a Kentucky NCAA championship in 2015 during an interview that was rel...

  11. NFL Playoffs? Nah, college basketball had craziest day

    Myron Medcalf

    The score didn't make sense. Perhaps someone hadn't caught the error. No. 1 Kentucky 53, Texas A&M 53? In the final seconds of regulation? C'mon, fix this. What? It's real? That was the reaction of folks who stumbled upon that game...

  12. Weekend predictions: Notre Dame knocks out Virginia

    Myron Medcalf

    For a moment last week, I thought about Seton Hall beating Villanova in a surprising upset. The Pirates were home and if they could defeat St. John's without Isaiah Whitehead, they could probably keep things tight with Nova. That was the idea. But...

  13. #Top10Thursday: Most disappointing teams

    Myron Medcalf

    So, this isn't one of those feel-good lists. If your favorite team is mentioned here, it's not a good thing. We're nearly halfway through the season. There's plenty of time for change -- for better or worse. As of now, however, the following ar...

  14. Rest of ACC ready to fight Duke, Virginia

    Myron Medcalf

    Angel Rodriguez plays ball the way everyone should play ball. He doesn't care about the situation or the odds. He just cares about winning. There's a fire inside that 5-foot-11, 181-pound frame that's been motivating teams since he was a star at K...

  15. Weekend Predictions: Drama in the Pac-12

    Myron Medcalf

    Oh, BYU. You almost helped me go 4-1 last weekend with a respectable effort against Gonzaga. Harvard racked up only 46 on the road against Arizona State. That didn't help. A pair of misses, but better than my previous efforts. Kentucky beat chief ...
