  1. Join the CBN Tournament Challenge

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's that time again -- time for you to pick a marginally better bracket than people who do this for living, and then disproportionately ridicule those so-called professionals as a result! Ah, the joys of the NCAA tournament. Compete against yours ...

  3. High Points long-shot tuition giveaway

    Eamonn Brennan

    The only top 25 team in action Friday night is Syracuse. At 7 p.m. ET, the Orange will welcome High Point to the Carrier Dome. Syracuse is going to win. Probably by a lot. I know, I know: I'm out on a limb there. It's a risky pick. But I have a feeli...

  4. Can NCAA enforcement pick up the pieces?

    Eamonn Brennan

    The folks charged with enforcing the NCAA's byzantine rulebook have not had a banner year. NCAA enforcement staff have always had a thankless job. No one likes to feel the blunt end of the bylaws. But recent months have represented a historical nadir...

  5. So much for that Kansas talent deficit

    Eamonn Brennan

    Remember when the 2013-14 Kansas Jayhawks were going to be a shaky proposition? I do! Just two weeks ago, Kansas was the team losing all five of last season's starters, among them four seniors and one freshman top-five draft pick. Left in their wa...

  6. Kansas picks up Hunter Mickelson

    Eamonn Brennan

    In 2011, when Hunter Mickelson committed to John Pelphrey at Arkansas, he was highly regarded. He was the No. 8-ranked power forward in the class, the No. 55-ranked overall player, and a key part of the recruiting class that was supposed to save Pelp...

  7. Don't worry about Marcus Smart

    Eamonn Brennan

    The reaction has been mostly predictable. When news broke last Tuesday that Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart, a likely top-five pick in the 2013 draft, would instead return for his sophomore season of college hoops, the usual gamut was run: su...

  9. Let the Harrison twins' hype begin

    Eamonn Brennan

    Kentucky fans have every right to focus on the here and now. After all, the Wildcats are going to be very good in 2012-13. John Calipari has a reloaded team coming off a national championship, with another plausible No. 1 overall draft pick (Nerlens ...

  10. Jabari Parker's schools cut surprising

    Eamonn Brennan

    In July, Jabari Parker -- top recruit in the class of 2013, Sports Illustrated cover boy, and a prospect talented and academically capable enough that he could pick just about any school in the country -- didn't seem all that eager to narrow his deci...

  11. Cody Zeller not stressing IU-UK rivalry

    Eamonn Brennan

    Cody Zeller seems like a pretty level-headed guy. He could have been a lottery pick this season, but he was having fun being in college -- how awesome would college be if you're Cody Zeller? -- so he decided to stay. It wouldn't be a total shock if h...

    Eamonn Brennan

    In this morning's top 10 draft questions, I spent all of my allotted queries discussing first-round intrigue. That's kind of the way the NBA draft works. The first round carries risk and reward; the second round can feel more like an afterthought. ...

  13. Kansas, UCLA top draft pick production list

    Eamonn Brennan

    If you had to guess which school had produced the most draft picks in the past 10 years, how would you guess? North Carolina? Duke? Kentucky? UConn? Texas? Those would probably be my selections, if not necessarily in that order, and I -- as is so oft...

  14. Bring your bracket to our pool, if you dare

    Eamonn Brennan

    I really shouldn't be talking noise. For the past three years, my bracket picks have performed horribly. Whether it's the crippling paralysis of too much information, sheer bad luck, or both, I have no reason to feel any confidence that my NCAA t...
