    Eamonn Brennan

    Transfers seem straightforward. A player leaves one school and attends another, and has to sit out one year before he can play for his new team. Simple, right? Wrong: Even that seemingly structured rule is beset by a score of academic timeline requir...

  4. Florida Gulf Coast unveils rad truck

    Eamonn Brennan

  6. How on Earth do you score 138 points?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Maybe we should have seen it coming. After all, when Grinnell guard Jack Taylor broke the NCAA all-time single-game scoring record -- a record that has stood since 1954 -- with 138 points Tuesday night, he didn't do it for just any random basketba...

  9. Suddenly, these Seminoles can score

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last spring, as I attempted to make sense of Florida State's surprising run to the Sweet 16 and of the role of Leonard Hamilton's consistently brutal man-to-man defense, I spoke with the team's point guard, Derwin Kitchen. I asked him why his team wa...

  10. Saddle Up: What happened to Madison?

    Eamonn Brennan

    Saddle Up is our semidaily preview of the night's best basketball action. It still doesn't understand why Stanford didn't just let Andrew Luck score the go-ahead touchdown. The guy was 26-of-30. He was unstoppable. And you give your season to a redsh...

  11. Hey, where did all the offense go?

    Eamonn Brennan

    There are 345 Division I college basketball teams. With so many teams playing so many games in any two-month stretch, you'd expect things to look pretty similar on a year-to-year basis. Some teams play fast. Some play slow. Some score a lot. Some def...

  13. Justin Harper is a unique snowflake

    Eamonn Brennan

    Similarity scores -- semi-complicated, multifaceted mathematical devices used to calculate one player's similarity to his peers -- can be truly useful instruments. Other times, they're just fun to look at. For example, see Barry Bonds's "similar play...

    The ongoing disappointment that is the 2011 Michigan State Spartans men's basketball team rolls on. Before last night's blowout in Madison -- an 82-56 drubbing that wasn't as bad as the score seems thanks to Wisconsin's insane shooting night, but was...
