  1. Five Things: Huskies come full circle

    Eamonn Brennan

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Connecticut Huskies are your 2014 national champions. Shabazz Napier closed the loop. Four years ago, in a massive Texas football stadium, Napier danced atop a confetti-covered court. On that day in 2011, the Huskies wer...

  2. Can UConn's defense match the Gators?

    Eamonn Brennan

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- After five days of prelude, it's hard to find something new to say about these games -- every angle has been explored, discussed, dismissed and recycled, often in the matter of an afternoon. No analytical stone goes unturned, and ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    So, now that we're a week away from the Wooden Award luncheon in Dallas, how does the Los Angeles Athletic Club and its Wooden Award advisory board actually go about deciding this thing? Helpful explanation from the club itself is provided here: ...

  4. Brennan's Wooden Watch: Week 17

    Eamonn Brennan

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: On Nov. 21, 2013, the first 2013-14 Wooden Watch column went live. The No. 1 player? Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart. Heady days, right? Smart held on to the top spot for two more weeks before yielding it to UConn's Shabaz...

  5. Brennan's Wooden Watch: Week 16

    Eamonn Brennan

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: Tuesday night wasn't exactly Creighton's best showing. The Bluejays were outplayed for pretty much all 40 minutes at Georgetown, as the Hoyas' seniors -- especially Markel Starks -- fought desperately to improve their bu...

  6. Brennan's Wooden Watch: Week 15

    Eamonn Brennan

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: What should have been a mundane home win turned dramatic for Creighton on Sunday. The Bluejays' defense gave up 71 points in 60 possessions to Seton Hall, and the game was tight late mostly because Creighton did somethin...

  7. Brennan's Wooden Watch: Week 14

    Eamonn Brennan

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: At this point, it's getting hard to come up with material for the Arbitrarily Capitalized Doug McDermott Awesomeness Tracker. Well, OK, that's not exactly true. McDermott is doing plenty of awesome things. But it's just ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    1. Doug McDermott, Creighton: The Arbitrarily Capitalized Doug McDermott Awesomeness Tracker will be shorter than usual this week, and not just because we here at ACMcDAT Industries are wary of repeating the same mind-bending statistics week in and w...

  9. Brennan's Wooden Watch: Week 3

    Eamonn Brennan

    The third week of Wooden Watch (or as I like to call it, "Wooden Watch 3: The Watchening") brings with it more tumult than its preceding editions. From sheer math alone, this makes sense. The Thanksgiving schedule pushed last week's Watch up to Tu...

  10. Injuries, not loss, real concern for Gators

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's one thing to lose. It's another to fall victim to a cliche. One bounce. Ugh. How many times does the game really come down to one bounce? One slight, imperceptible angle? One unwitting deflection? "Almost never" is the answer. Less than the...

    Now that realignment is behind us, rosters are mostly finalized, and freshmen are getting used to living in dorm rooms (oh, to be reborn at summer orientation), we're spending the week looking ahead at some of the more interesting players and storyli...

  15. Paradise Jam Primer

    Eamonn Brennan

    Until Connecticut's opening day victory over Michigan State in Germany, there wasn't much reason to get excited about the 2012 Paradise Jam. And even after a gutty, fired-up UConn team showed us it's not ready to wither just yet, the P-Jam (which is ...

  16. Napier giving leadership another shot

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last season's UConn team was disappointing in ways that go deeper than wins and losses. Despite coming off a national title, it was a young team, devoid of its star and do-everything leader Kemba Walker, so there were always going to be some growi...
