  4. Iowa banking on better shooting

    Eamonn Brennan

    Prepare yourself: In the next five months, you are going to hear a lot about the Iowa Hawkeyes. This is for good reason. Iowa was a bubble team in 2012-13, which in itself was a drastic improvement over the post-Todd Lickliter rebuilding years, bu...

  6. Trust drives Temple, drops NC State

    Eamonn Brennan

    DAYTON, Ohio -- NC State was never the sixth-best team in the country. We should probably get that out of the way. NC State's now-infamous preseason ranking was less the product of the team's quality and more of the hype that accompanies tournamen...

  10. Conference Power Rankings: Atlantic 10

    Eamonn Brennan

    If someone tells you they know how to rank all 16 Atlantic 10 teams at this point in the 2012-13 season, that person is lying. To be honest, I was tempted to update John Gasaway's Tuesday Truths efficiency margin data to include Wednesday and Thursda...
