  3. Afternoon Links: Above the law

    Eamonn Brennan

  4. NCAA says Grant Gibbs not done yet

    Eamonn Brennan

    The NCAA giveth and the NCAA taketh away, and good luck trying to figure out the difference. Trying to divine the reasons the NCAA's eligibility appeals arbiters do anything can be maddening; for every needlessly harsh adjudication, there's one t...

    Eamonn Brennan

    1. Florida is that good. Yes, Missouri was missing leading scorer Laurence Bowers, and yes, the game was in Gainesville. Even so, what Florida did to Missouri on Saturday -- an 83-52 stomping that began in the first minute and never relented -- wa...

  8. St. Francis hires son of AD as new coach

    Eamonn Brennan

    This year, I gave credit to Creighton coach Greg McDermott and his star son Doug McDermott for handling the unusual father-son coaching dynamic with almost zero fuss. Greg McDermott submitted an All-American season for the Bluejays, and his father...

  9. Doug McDermott gets piece of father's mind

    Eamonn Brennan

    The story of the 2011-12 Creighton Bluejays has been, up until the past few weeks, a mostly endearing one. Forward Doug McDermott emerged from this past summer's time with Team USA with scoring gifts previously unseen, and his unique ability to put u...

  10. What we learned from Saturday night

    Eamonn Brennan

    Saturday afternoon transitioned into Saturday night as smoothly as Kentucky transitions from an Anthony Davis block to the fast break. In the process, we saw Michigan State defend like crazy at Ohio State, Creighton take a beatdown by Wichita State a...

  12. Mo Cassara can drain his free throws

    Eamonn Brennan

    Do you guys remember free-throw contests? Growing up in Iowa, our local Knights of Columbus always held a regional free-throw shooting contest. It was always the best gym day of the year. If you made the most free throws out of 25 in your class, you ...

  13. Creighton poised to end Dance drought?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Doug McDermott had a quietly fantastic year. The Creighton freshman -- who ended up at the school when his father, former Iowa State coach Greg McDermott, left Ames to take Dana Altman's old job in Omaha -- didn't garner much national press, which is...

  14. Creighton to try out Midnight Madness

    Eamonn Brennan

  15. Greg McDermott lures son from UNI

    Eamonn Brennan

  16. Blue Jays hire McDermott, waste no time

    Eamonn Brennan

    Well, that didn't take long. In less than two days after news that former Creighton coach Dana Altman would be taking Oregon's long-vacant job opening, Creighton has (reportedly) recovered and hired its new coach in expedient fashion. "Expedient" bar...
