  1. Howard Moore gets his Cha-Cha Slide on

    Eamonn Brennan

    Kitschy group dances can go in a handful of directions. There's the Chicken Dance, which should never, ever happen, even if you're trying to win a free pizza on an arena Jumbotron. (I like pizza, too, but have some self-respect.) There's the Electric...

  2. Top freshmen passing on U19 games

    Eamonn Brennan

    If I were an 18-year-old college basketball star, I would want to play for Team USA. Maybe it's because I grew up playing soccer, and representing your state, region or country at various age Olympic Development Program levels was always the goal (on...

  3. Adidas is just trolling you now

    Eamonn Brennan

    You remember last March, right? Good times: Kentucky's triumphant promenade through the bracket, two No. 2 seeds upset on the same first-round afternoon, Louisville's unlikely, Russ Smith-led Final Four run, achieved while wearing those widely despis...

  4. Bill Self comes around on stipends

    Eamonn Brennan

  5. 'Unknown' guard goes global in China

    Eamonn Brennan

    I cover college basketball for a living, and until Monday night, I had never heard of Saint Louis guard Jake Barnett. There are good reasons for this. As a sophomore, Barnett was the 10th man in the SLU rotation last season. He scored all of 20 point...

  6. Aaron Craft still tougher than you

    Eamonn Brennan

    A couple guys I grew up playing soccer with would react to any contact play with the kind of dramatic tension only my theater-directing mother could appreciate. They would wail and writhe and eventually they would stand up, but not before limping fee...

  7. Doug McDermott gets piece of father's mind

    Eamonn Brennan

    The story of the 2011-12 Creighton Bluejays has been, up until the past few weeks, a mostly endearing one. Forward Doug McDermott emerged from this past summer's time with Team USA with scoring gifts previously unseen, and his unique ability to put u...

  8. Doug McDermott takes chants in stride

    Eamonn Brennan

    We've discussed before how impressive it is that Greg and Doug McDermott, Creighton's father-son coach-star combo, have so successfully managed their unique situation in college hoops for the past two seasons. That dynamic -- the whole how-do-I-treat...

  9. Ex-Bonnies guard teams with Snoop Dogg

    Eamonn Brennan

    What happens when you mix a former St. Bonaventure guard, rappers Snoop Dogg and Warren G, a British triple-jump star and adidas marketing? Apparently, a British basketball ad. And a rather strange one at that: Former Bonnies guard Ogo Adegboy...

  10. Big Ten scholarship proposal bad for hoops

    Eamonn Brennan

    By now, you've probably heard a lot about the Big Ten's big proposal, which it announced at the league's spring meetings last week. In case you're out of the loop, let's review. Last week, Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delaney discussed a somewhat nove...

  11. Enes Kanter's father makes bold guarantee

    Eamonn Brennan

    Are you tired of the Enes Kanter story yet? Hey, me too. But -- thanks to Kanter's talent, his unique circumstances, and the seemingly constant stream of information about his NCAA eligibility case -- it continues tp be a story whether we like it or ...

  12. UK fans already in line for tickets

    Eamonn Brennan

    There are a lot of sports franchises in a lot of places in the world, so this statement doesn't come lightly: Few fan bases anywhere support their teams as well as Kentucky's. Minus the political overtones and occasional deluge of riotous violence, K...

  13. Bob Huggins' summer injury tradition

    Eamonn Brennan

    Yesterday, the good news came. West Virginia coach Bob Huggins was released from a Las Vegas hospital. As you likely know, Huggins spent five days in the hospital after breaking seven ribs in a coffee table-induced fall in his hotel room. Huggins ...

  14. U.S. under-18s represent for America

    Eamonn Brennan

    Or Ameribrah. Whichever you prefer. Sure, the U.S. men's national team didn't make it past the round of 16 in the World Cup, leaving a potentially world-changing (or, to those of you who have no interest in soccer whatsoever, at least mildly intri...

    MILWAUKEE -- It's been a hard-fought, sloppy first half between the Musketeers and Gophers, and the end result is a 26-26 tie at halftime. Some assorted thoughts from the first 20 minutes of today's first Milwaukee regional game: Both teams are d...
