    Eamonn Brennan

  3. Tip sheet for the Tip-Off Marathon

    Eamonn Brennan

    The ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon is here, and with all due respect to Oregon's far-flung win over Georgetown in South Korea on Friday (and UConn's nervy victory over Maryland in less-far-flung Brooklyn), the marathon always feels like the offi...

    Eamonn Brennan

    If you're a denizen of the college basketball Internet, there's a good chance you have already seen SI writer Luke Winn's epic rewind of the legendary 1990 LSU-Loyola game, "The Lost Art of Scoring." If you haven't, go read it now. It's very good. ...

  8. SEC/Big East slate whets the appetite

    Eamonn Brennan

    The SEC/Big East Challenge may not quite have the longstanding cachet of its ACC/Big Ten brethren, nor should it. The ACC/Big Ten Challenge is 13 going on 14, and as the years piled up and the Atlantic Coasters just kept winning -- the ACC won the fi...

  11. LSU to erect statue in honor of Shaq

    Eamonn Brennan

    Lately, it's been hard to watch Shaquille O'Neal. The guy who won three MVP awards, who went to 15 All-Star Games, who averaged -- get this -- 35.7 points and 14.9 rebounds per game in the 2000, 2001 and 2002 NBA Finals ... well, that guy is gone ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Georgia Tech blogger BirdGT at From The Rumble Seat has a beef with his fellow ACC fans. It goes a little somethin' like this: All I've heard lately is, "Our conference is down!" or "North Carolina is bad so everyone else sucks too!" or "The ACC w...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Oh, sure, a win over Notre Dame isn't exactly a season-maker. It's not like the Scarlet Knights toppled Syracuse or Villanova. Beating 2009-10's decidedly mediocre Fighting Irish isn't the stuff Disney movies are made of. But Rutgers' win did give th...
