    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...

  7. Pac-12 preseason vote fittingly confusing

    Eamonn Brennan

    As an overall league, the Pac-12 was really, really bad last season. But, in its badness, it was also profoundly weird. To wit: The 2012 Pac-12 regular-season champion, Washington, didn't go to the NCAA tournament, the first power-six team to acco...

    For all the ways you can diss the Pac-12 this season -- and you can start with the 1-29 record against the RPI top 50 in nonconference play, or look at the paucity of teams ranked inside Ken Pomeroy's adjusted efficiency top 50 (there are two), and s...

    It's the second week of February. The college hoops season's version of crunch time is upon us. Where does the Pac-12 stand? Exactly where it stood three weeks ago. Or three weeks before that. Generally speaking, this is a league in stasis. Becaus...
