  2. Coaches vs. Cancer Primer

    Dana O'Neil

    An interesting doubleheader combo of four teams you wouldn't normally put together but also four teams that are sort of on the game's fringe right now. Notre Dame is ranked, Saint Joseph's was picked to win the Atlantic 10. Still none of these teams ...

  6. The ACC's crystal ball is tough to see

    Dana O'Neil

    Eight of the 12 coaches in the ACC have been on their respective campuses for two seasons or less. That can be construed one of two ways: It's either new blood for Mike Krzyzewski and Roy Williams to feast on, or it's a new wave of energy to chall...

  12. Final: Gonzaga 67, Florida State 60

    Dana O'Neil

    BUFFALO -- Some quick post-game reactions. Note to Gonzaga: This sort of effort won't fly against Syracuse (presuming the presumable win over Vermont). The shooting part is great, but the complete loss of focus late and the crummy defensive eff...

    Dana O'Neil

    BUFFALO -- Some quick halftime observations here from the nightcap opener: Florida State is winning the battle but not the war. This game is playing at a pace to the Seminoles' liking but while FSU is limiting Gonzaga's possessions, it's not stopp...
