  1. On the hunt for post-realignment rivalries

    Eamonn Brennan

    In 1985, Philadelphia Inquirer photographer Tom Gralish won a Pulitzer Prize for his photo essay on the Philadelphia homeless. Gralish's work, composed in black and white, was stark and haunting, but for different reasons than you might expect. Not o...

  2. Mike D'Antoni talking college possibilities

    Eamonn Brennan

    Outside of the 1990s Chicago Bulls, and maybe the Bill Walton-era Trailblazers, few NBA teams have captivated my basketball imagination quite like the Mike D'Antoni-Steve Nash Phoenix Suns. There are a few reasons for this, some of them more complica...

    Eamonn Brennan

  4. Get well soon, Butler Blue II

    Eamonn Brennan

    So I get home from Tuesday night's pickup basketball just in time to see the final few possessions of a thoroughly satisfying Boston Celtics win -- I'm a Bulls fan, but I can't help but root for this team (and it doesn't hurt that they're playing Mia...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Slowly but surely -- OK, quickly and furiously -- we've arrived at the final day of the first weekend of the greatest sports competition in the world. (I used to be somewhat sheepish writing that, what with the World Cup and the Olympics and so on, b...

  6. What to watch for in Friday's games

    Eamonn Brennan

    After a relatively mild third day of NCAA tournament action Thursday, does Friday promise more excitement? Close games? A buzzer-beater? Something? Beggars can't be choosers, but we can be hopers. As we pray to the basketball gods for all the tour...

  7. What we learned from Saturday afternoon

    Eamonn Brennan

    Believe it or not, a certain massive matchup in Durham, N.C., isn't the only college hoops game on the schedule today. Hard to believe, I know, but it's true. Here's a look at much of the action -- bubble and otherwise -- that served as the appeti...

    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...

  9. TMA: Is it possible to have a marquee loss?

  11. Two-year age limit could be on the way

    Eamonn Brennan

    On Sunday, at the local gigantic organic grocery store deli counter, my roommate complimented a meat salesman wearing a Chicago Bulls hat. "Thanks," the deli salesman said. "I just wish they weren't canceling the season." My roommate paused and...

  12. Vermont victim of outdated technology?

    Eamonn Brennan

    You don't know what you've got 'till it's gone. It applies to pretty much everything: girlfriends, beef jerky, M83 songs. Video replay in college hoops is no different. Before the video monitors became available, referees had to go by what they saw. ...

  14. Can South Florida take the next step?

    Eamonn Brennan

    South Florida coach Stan Heath had a pretty good Fourth of July weekend. While you were grilling meats and laying on the lake and driving around in the countryside looking at fireworks -- or, you know, whatever you were doing -- Heath was locking dow...

    Eamonn Brennan

    This year's big college-to-NBA coaching possibilities have centered on John Calipari and then, much more seriously, Tom Izzo. Calipari's connection to the Chicago Bulls (or anywhere LeBron James was going) was always just a rumor, while Izzo's potent...

  16. Bye bye to the double bye?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Since the conference expanded to 16 teams, the Big East has used a rather unique system in scheduling its conference tournament. Under that system, the top four seeds, as decided by the regular season, receive double-byes in the Big East tournament; ...
