    Eamonn Brennan

    At 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPNU unveiled the 2012-13 Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 Presented by Wendy's (a sponsorship I have no problem citing, because I love me a good spicy chicken sandwich) and, by and large, the list was about what you'd expect. This ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Normally, when Mason Plumlee does something that has me reciting simple facts in lieu of analysis -- e.g., his face-melting one-handed alley-oop in last night's gutty Duke victory over No. 4 Ohio State -- the award for College Basketball Nation Shot ...

  4. Big East not changing its name

    Eamonn Brennan

    Last week, former Big East interim commissioner Joe Bailey spoke at the Bloomberg Sports Business Summit. Among the discussed topics -- which I'm sure included "leveraging integrated verticals" or whatever other buzzwords business folk like to drop t...

    Eamonn Brennan

    We have now entered conference realignment's Stage 3. Or is it Stage 4? It's hard to keep track. Part of the reason it's so hard to definitively describe the where we are in the realignment process is because Stage 1 remains alive and well. Confer...

  8. What we learned from Saturday afternoon

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's OK to admit it: This is hardly the best Saturday we've seen this season. But here's the good news: It's Feb. 18. We're well within sniffing distance of Selection Sunday, and so every game is meaningful -- including, but certainly not limited to,...

  9. IUPUI's Todd Howard in familiar territory

    Eamonn Brennan

    The new building. The empty office. The unpacked boxes of knick-knacks and memorabilia. The awkward getting-to-know-you phase. The news conference performance. The fan-outreach efforts. The new home in the new community. This is the life of the co...

  10. Thoughts on Saturday afternoon's action

    Eamonn Brennan

    Some scattered reflections on what turned out to be a rather tremendous afternoon of college hoops (Cory Joseph bobbleheads sold separately): Gonzaga gets its much-needed win. Forget an NCAA tournament at-large bid. For now, Gonzaga just needed t...

  13. Centenary coach has rough three months

    Eamonn Brennan

    Imagine you got a job. Good for you! You wouldn't go so far as to say it's your dream job, but it's your first full-time managerial position in a tough economy, and you're a pretty young guy, so, you know, pat yourself on the back. Your Mom sends you...

  14. Ivy League breaks its NBA-free streak

    Eamonn Brennan

    Jeremy Lin is breaking all sorts of NBA-related barriers. He's an Asian-American, for one, and Asian-Americans are all too rare in college hoops, let alone in the NBA. But there's also the little matter of Lin's former college, Harvard, which (as you...

  15. Pittsburgh begins Big East redemption

    Eamonn Brennan

    MILWAUKEE -- If the story of the tournament thus far is the number of upsets on hand, the underlying story has been the way those upsets have disproportionately sunk Big East teams. No. 11 Old Dominion outlasts No. 6 Notre Dame. No. 11 Washington...
