    Myron Medcalf

    It's March. Championship Week begins Friday, and we're less than two weeks away from the Big Dance. We'll probably see a multitude of thrillers, overtime games and clutch performances in the coming weeks. At least, we hope we will. With the gam...

  4. Weekend Picks: Florida over Kentucky?

    Myron Medcalf

    About last weekend. Well, Wichita State stayed undefeated after securing a win over Northern Iowa, but most predicted that. Larry Brown is in the national coach of the year conversation nearly 30 years after winning the national title with Kans...

  5. Weekend Picks: Iowa over Ohio State?

    Myron Medcalf

    C'mon, Memphis. I never thought Cincy would stomp the Tigers the way it did last weekend. That was my lone blemish. I figured out the rest, though. I have a feeling, however, that I'll be less accurate this weekend. Too many difficult matchu...

  6. Marquette continues to disappoint

    Myron Medcalf

    In October, Big East commissioner Val Ackerman made it clear that she expected the new league to immediately snatch a spot toward the top of the college basketball hierarchy. The conference boss didn't preach a two-year, three-year or five-year visio...

  7. Syracuse shows it has heart of a contender

    Myron Medcalf

    Syracuse was down. Way down in its 78-62 win over Villanova on Saturday at the Carrier Dome. Though it was too early to call the game due to early domination, Villanova did not appear to be in any mood to take its foot off the neck of its former Big ...

  8. Weekend picks: Villanova over Syracuse?

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, I went 3-2 again last weekend. I missed Michigan State-Texas, obviously. I thought the Longhorns would thrive on the comforts of its home floor and their growing confidence following a win over North Carolina the previous week. But sometimes, i...

  9. Weekend Picks: Texas over Michigan State?

    Myron Medcalf

    Well, this isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Yet. We're a long way from March. So I'm sure I'll miss a bunch. But in last week's picks, I was accurate on every game except Iowa-Iowa State. That Cyclones-Hawkeyes matchup was one of the best...

  11. Weekend Homework: Marquette needs a win

  13. 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...

  14. Doug McDermott should be a superstar

    Myron Medcalf

    I'd like to turn Doug McDermott into a superstar. The kind of character that college basketball fans fall in love with each season. The type of young man who gets shout-outs from rap stars on Twitter. A player whom the cameras always monitor becau...

  15. Perfection is possible in 2013-14

    Myron Medcalf

  16. Kentucky deserves AP's top slot

    Myron Medcalf
