  1. Revised top 25: Post-deadline edition

    Eamonn Brennan

    At 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday night, the NBA's early-entry draft deadline came and went. No key college hoops offseason date has so much, or so widespread, an impact on the landscape to come. And, for the fledgling offseason rankings writer, no considerati...

    Eamonn Brennan

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- It's not often you see a headline that intentionally undermines the piece below it. This, dear hoops fans, is one of those times. Yes, the "Way Too Early" prefix in "Way-Too-Early Top 25" pretty much gives this game away. We ar...

  4. 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...

  5. Memphis gets revenge and a top 25 win

    Eamonn Brennan

    The wrong statistic can hang around your neck. Josh Pastner knows better than most. As the head men's basketball coach at Memphis, Pastner has, by any rational standard, been about as successful as anyone could or should have hoped when he was hire...

  7. 5 unlisted Wooden candidates worth seeing

    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 ...

  8. VCU, Cincinnati among new top 25 snubs

    Eamonn Brennan

    Yes, that's right: After Wednesday's signing day madness -- Nerlens Noel to Kentucky, Shabazz Muhammad to UCLA, extra extra, read all about it -- we've gone and built another extremely early top 25. I know, I know. You're excited. The whole "too e...

  9. What happened to Ohio State?

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's a testament to the program Thad Matta has built that after three losses in its last five games - all three of which came to top-25 teams, one of which came on the road - that we would even think of broaching the above question. Another testament...

  10. Weekend injuries to hurt two top-10 teams

    Eamonn Brennan

    Louisville and Vanderbilt are both safely ensconced in the warmth of the Associated Press poll's preseason top 25. Both teams have high expectations -- it's fair to say the Final Four is the goal for both -- in 2011-12. And both teams, by varying deg...

  11. Saddle Up: Much at stake on bubble tonight

    Eamonn Brennan

    Saddle Up is our semi-daily look at the night's best basketball action. On paper, Temple's late-season trip to Duke is our best game of the night. It will feature two top 25 teams, a Temple squad playing well despite tons of injury issues, and a w...

  12. Yeah, Memphis is in bad shape

    Eamonn Brennan

    It's safe to say Memphis' inexplicably persistent stay in the top 25 is soon to expire. Before Wednesday night, Memphis was clearly struggling. A quick glance at the Tigers' tempo-free stats showed as much: Memphis' offense was stagnant and turnov...

  14. SDSU barely survives ... Cal Poly?

    Eamonn Brennan

    If you skipped out on college hoops last night, you deserve forgiveness. It wasn't exactly the most appetizing slate of games, was it? There weren't any quality matchups on the board, and the only Top-25 team playing was San Diego State, who would su...

  15. Brennan's Feast Week observations

    Eamonn Brennan

    Five observations from the week that was: 1. The Top 25 is a volatile place to be. Putting a Top 25 together in any week is difficult, but it's especially tough in November and December, and that goes double for the past week. A coterie of Top-25 ...

  16. Noodling around with the consensus top 25

    Eamonn Brennan

    The great thing about college basketball is that polls don't matter. They don't matter before the season, because the season is long enough to separate the wheat from the chaff. They don't matter after the season, because everyone knows who just won ...
