    Eamonn Brennan

  2. Napier giving leadership another shot

    Eamonn Brennan

  3. Shabazz Napier, UConn grasp for leadership

    Eamonn Brennan

  6. Rapid Reaction: UConn 53, Butler 41

    Eamonn Brennan

    HOUSTON -- Two years. Two storybook runs to the national title game. Two brutal, demoralizing finishes. Butler's first run at glory ended with a just-this-close heave from Gordon Hayward. Instead, Duke took the title. This year, Butler's second ch...

  7. Halftime reaction: Butler 22, Connecticut 19

    Eamonn Brennan

    HOUSTON -- The court is a glistening pane. The stadium is a pristine artifice. The cheerleaders are smiling; the uniforms are cleanly designed. Everything in Reliant Arena is pretty. Everything, that is, except the offense. Instead, these two d...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Eamonn Brennan

    Remember back in October, when North Carolina's Harrison Barnes became the first freshman to be selected as a preseason first-team AP All-American? Many thought Barnes was merely overhyped. That was probably true (though Barnes did live up to his adv...
