  3. Bill Self not impressed by exhibition

    Eamonn Brennan

  4. NAIA school to barnstorm Nebraska

    Eamonn Brennan

  6. After ejection, Haith ends Dutch exhibition

    Eamonn Brennan

    College basketball in August is rarely memorable, but this image stuck: the Georgetown Hoyas in China, isolated and outnumbered in a hostile gym, closing ranks as a massive brawl breaks out. Violent punches are thrown; chairs are grabbed; the crowd w...

  7. Izzo grants exhibition to nephew's program

    Eamonn Brennan

    St. Cloud State is a small Division II hoops program on the banks of the Mississippi River in (where else) St. Cloud, Minn. It is not a place you would associate with college hoops celebrity, nor is it the type of program that gets to play big-time g...

  8. China fight caused Hoyas arrest concerns

    Eamonn Brennan

    One of the scariest and craziest -- OK, the scariest and craziest -- moments of the offseason came during Georgetown's exhibition trip to China. You've no doubt seen the footage by now, probably more than once. John Thompson III was worried for t...

  13. Tim Abromaitis, NCAA avoid disaster

    Eamonn Brennan

    At first glance, the end result of Notre Dame forward Tim Abromaitis's brush with the arcane end of the NCAA rulebook feels like so many such brushes do. A four-game suspension for having played in two exhibition games as a sophomore? The NCAA seems ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Eamonn Brennan
