  1. Five things: Florida ends Dayton's dream

    Eamonn Brennan

    MEMPHIS -- The feel-good story of the 2014 NCAA tournament ended as so many feel-good underdog stories do: at the hands of a top-seeded favorite. Last season, Florida clinically ended Florida Gulf Coast's dunk-filled Cinderella run. On Saturday, the ...

  2. Wazzu cheerleader hits backflip trick

    Eamonn Brennan

    Would basketball be better if it featured more backflips? I'm not so sure. I mean, on the one hand, backflips are awesome. Backflip dunks! Why not? On the other hand, the line separating civilized sport from the dystopian anarchy of old MTV Rock 'N' ...

  3. Dunk City is in good hands

    Eamonn Brennan

    Have you heard of Christian Terrell? If not, don't feel bad. Terrell, a high school point guard from Jacksonville, Fla., is better than your average bear at the game of basketball, of course. But as college hoops recruits go, he's hardly Andrew Wiggi...

  4. 'Jamaal Franklin made Dunk.'

    Eamonn Brennan

    That's the play listing from the ESPN scoreboard play-by-play of the absolutely insane dunk Jamaal Franklin unleashed on Fresno State on Wednesday night. Which is a little bit like saying: "F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote a novel." "J. M. W. Turner p...

  5. Best of the best: Top 10 3-point shooters

    Eamonn Brennan

    You can't learn how to dunk. You either jump, or you don't. You can, however, learn how to shoot: feet shoulder-width apart, right foot an inch ahead of left, elbow over the knee, wrist parallel to the floor, ball gently placed in fingertips, elbow s...

  6. Tom Izzo's Iron Man costume was awesome

    Eamonn Brennan

    There were plenty of Midnight Madness highlights Friday night. Missouri's Keion Bell, formerly of Pepperdine, brought the dunking ability that made him famous to Columbia, jumping over six people en route to arguably the night's best dunk. The ever-a...

  7. Anthony Davis is basically unfair

    Eamonn Brennan

    The height, the reach, the leaping ability, the touch -- there is no physical attribute Kentucky's Anthony Davis does not possess, no leap he can't make, no rebound that can't be plausibly seen in his hands as a soon-to-be-dunk. Case in point: Thi...

  8. The SWAC dunk you have to see

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Southwestern Athletic Conference is not a place from which viral videos frequently emanate. Frankly, it's not a place from which news of any sort frequently emanates. Until the play-in game (now games) roll(s) around in March, the SWAC -- frequen...

  9. NCAA moving closer on cost of attendance

    Eamonn Brennan

    Of all the debates in college sports this offseason, cost of attendance has reached acceptance more quickly than most. This is interesting, because the proposal is far from a slam dunk. Is it a good thing to give college athletes more realistic finan...

  10. My favorite part of Midnight Madness

  12. Summers makes good as Spartans advance

    Eamonn Brennan

    To look at Durrell Summers' game log is to look at a player capable of anything. That's not always a compliment. Summers can dominate a game, can score 30 points, can get to the rim and finish with high-flying dunks almost at will, can hit long th...

  13. Syracuse escapes with No. 1 hopes intact

    Eamonn Brennan

    ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Asking Jim Boeheim to describe Wes Johnson's dunk in the second-half of Syracuse's nail-biting 59-57 win over DePaul Saturday is a little like asking a fisherman to describe the ocean. Where do you start? "It tied the game," Boeh...

  15. Georgia's Leslie dunks all over Cousins

    Eamonn Brennan

    Here in Chicago, local Bulls analyst Stacey King has special, nonsensical, consistently hilarious catchphrase for when someone gets dunked on: "Get up or get out the way!" I have no real idea what this means, but it's always funny. (Sometimes King fo...
