  2. Bubble Watch: Day's winners, losers, more

    Eamonn Brennan

    Well, well, well. Apparently, a few teams want to go to the tournament after all. OK, so of course everyone wants to play in the NCAA tournament. But watching the past week or so of college hoops, you could have been convinced otherwise. Why, it w...

  5. Hoyas' home loss cause for concern?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Should Georgetown fans be panicking? Because Georgetown fans seem to be panicking. At the very least, that was the reaction at Casual Hoya last night: That was not a good loss. That was not an acceptable loss. That was a pathetic loss. Losing to West...

  6. Cincy, Xavier's brawl suspensions fall short

    Eamonn Brennan

    On Saturday, after one of the most graphic and brutal brawls in the history of college basketball, Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin took his seat at the postgame podium. He talked about the game for a few minutes, but by this point no one cared about the...

  7. Calhoun snipes at Cronin, Cronin fires back

    Eamonn Brennan

    Jim Calhoun is not happy about the Big East All-Conference voting. See, Kemba Walker was voted first team Big East all-conference, but he wasn't a unanimous selection. Notre Dame guard Ben Hansbrough was the only such selection. That is, well, cur...

  8. Cincinnati steals Superman's cape

    Eamonn Brennan

    The Cincinnati Bearcats got what the Associated Press described as "the defining win of their season" Wednesday night. That might be a little bit hyperbolic -- and who's to say Cincinnati can't get another "defining win" before the Big East season fi...

  9. Mick Cronin still proving ill-timed point

    Eamonn Brennan

    You have to give Mick Cronin some credit. He sure is sticking to his guns. The Cincinnati coach has not been pleased with forward Yancy Gates -- the Bearcats' most talented and productive player -- lately. Cronin suspended Gates for Cincinnati's g...

  10. Bearcats' Yancy Gates talking marquee wins

    Eamonn Brennan

    If the Big East is going to fulfill its much-lauded destiny as an 11-team -- not eight, or nine, or 10, but 11 -- conference come March, it will need at least three teams to finish strong. One of those is St. John's, which needs to stack a few more w...

  12. Saddle Up: Northwestern's moment of truth

    Eamonn Brennan

    Saddle Up is our semi-daily preview of the night's best basketball action. It wishes cold and flu season better aligned with the offseason. Ugh. Northwestern at No. 20 Illinois, 9 p.m. ET, ESPN2: It's still too early to call this a must-win game f...

  13. Cincy already playing the respect card

    Eamonn Brennan

    In case you missed it, the Cincinnati Bearcats are 14-0. This is, in and of itself, a very impressive record. College basketball, for all its built-in inequality, is a topsy-turvy game. So no matter who the opponent, it's hard to win 14 games in a ro...

  14. Mick Cronin keeps Rashad Bishop suspended

    Eamonn Brennan

    This offseason, Tom Izzo basically wrote the book on vaguely suspending and dismissing players; his eventual farewell to veteran guard Chris Allen came and went without much explanation by either Allen or Izzo. In the end, Izzo said he had "obligatio...

  15. It's time to start worrying about UConn

    Eamonn Brennan

    Mick Cronin and the Cincinnati Bearcats might not want to admit it, but Wednesday night's last-second, Lance Stephenson-free-throw-after-a-questionable-foul-call victory over Connecticut might have more to do with UConn's mediocrity than with Cincinn...
