    Eamonn Brennan

    The Morning After is our semi-daily recap of last night's best basketball action. Yesterday, my editor worked 18 hours. When he arrived at the office, it was February. When he left, it was March. Sweet, glorious March. Which is a little like my arriv...

  3. Cincinnati steals Superman's cape

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Cincinnati Bearcats got what the Associated Press described as "the defining win of their season" Wednesday night. That might be a little bit hyperbolic -- and who's to say Cincinnati can't get another "defining win" before the Big East season fi...

  4. Mick Cronin still proving ill-timed point

    Eamonn Brennan

  7. Brennan: Thoughts from the week that was

    Eamonn Brennan

    Five impressions from the week that was: 1.Connecticut should hereafter receive the benefit of the doubt. Before Saturday's big win at Texas, Connecticut appeared to be a one-man team. The Huskies had major holes in their frontcourt and no legiti...

  8. Cincy already playing the respect card

    Eamonn Brennan

    In case you missed it, the Cincinnati Bearcats are 14-0. This is, in and of itself, a very impressive record. College basketball, for all its built-in inequality, is a topsy-turvy game. So no matter who the opponent, it's hard to win 14 games in a ro...

    Eamonn Brennan

    College hoops polls might be inconsequential noise, but that doesn't mean they're not fun to argue about. In that spirit, I present the creatively named "Poll Thoughts," which you can expect every Monday until the season is over, or until the ESPN/US...
