    Eamonn Brennan

  3. Planning for Success: Harvard on target

    Eamonn Brennan

    Here's a random question: Before Friday, when Harvard cinched its third straight Ivy League title, when was the last time you heard about the Crimson? Unless you're a die-hard Ivy League hoops fan, it's safe to guess the last time was Jan. 21. Tha...

  4. Did Duke's bid for No. 1 matter?

    Eamonn Brennan

    In its fourth season under Jeff Bzdelik, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons men's basketball team is not quite the fan-alienating train wreck of seasons past, but it isn't very good, either. Wake Forest has scored 1.0 points per possession and allowed ...

  6. Sad Georgetown Fan sums up season

    Eamonn Brennan

    In this instance -- or really in any instance, I suppose -- the word "viral" is relative. We're not talking Cousin Terio or Elan Gale or (heaven forbid) Justine Sacco-level viral here. A gaggle of reporters will not be standing outside Sad Georgetown...

  7. Planning for success: ASU's best hope

    Eamonn Brennan

    Calling Arizona-Arizona State a rivalry is a little like calling someone who only plays "Angry Birds" on their phone a "gamer" - it's technically true but hugely deceptive. Yes, Arizona State fans hate Arizona. And yeah, Arizona fans probably deri...

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Indiana Hoosiers are fun to watch.* *Offer not applicable to Indiana fans. To the casual basketball person, or the random fan of a random program looking for a watchable game on a random night, Indiana is practically a made-for-TV guarantee. ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    In 2008-09, Kentucky men's basketball coach Billy Gillispie led the Wildcats to a 22-14 record and an appearance in the NIT. Kentucky fans were furious. In March of 2009, Gillispie was fired; that afternoon, local media chased him around as he preten...

  10. Afternoon links: What Houston lost

    Eamonn Brennan

    How did Oregon guard Joseph Young get to Eugene? Whence did this versatile, efficient perimeter player materialize? It wasn't thin air, though Ducks fans might be feeling the magic. It was Houston, where, this summer, Young's father, Cougars icon Mic...

  11. Weekend Homework: Is UNLV that bad?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Or is UC Santa Barbara that good? Because that is the best chance you have, if you're a UNLV fan, of explaining away the Rebels' ugly 3-3 start -- one made uglier by the fact that all six games were played in the Thomas & Mack Center. You can excus...

  12. Providence has plenty to prove in Paradise

    Eamonn Brennan

    There is always danger in the sentimental hire. Just ask NC State. In spring of 2006, after the conspicously unloved Herb Sendek fled Raleigh, N.C., for Arizona State, Wolfpack fans got one of their own: Sidney Lowe, point guard for Jim Valvano's l...

  13. Can Josh Smith finally make good?

    Eamonn Brennan

    It was a boon to Georgetown fans, a surprise to pretty much everyone else, and a frustratingly timed breaking news alert for a college hoops writer who had just huddled inside a small rock venue in search of chill vibes: On Wednesday night, Georgetow...

  14. Marcus Smart: Wiggins needs to 'prove'

    Eamonn Brennan

    Let's admit it: There's a chance Andrew Wiggins has us all out in front of our skis. A lot of us -- and by "us" I mean any college basketball fan (or writer) inclined to (or paid to) offer their tepid predictions for the 2013-14 season -- will pic...

  16. Iowa State mixes in some yoga

    Eamonn Brennan

    The preseason is boring. The only good news is we're all in it together. Because while we fans sit around and beg for real, actual basketball, college coaches and players are stuck in preseason workout limbo, drilling skills and lifting weights and r...
