For Beasley only one good thing (the NBA) and a million bad ones could happen. And while college fans will bemoan the allegation that Beasley attending K-State was just a fixed recruitment, when it came to building Beasley’s career, it was also the correct one. Beasley had trouble everywhere he’d been. Kansas State was where he became an All-American, eased NBA fears and landed that big contract.
In a text message from Josh Selby's mother, Maeshon Witherspoon, TheShiver.com was informed that Josh Selby is officially NOT returning to the University of Kansas.
But with all this negativity swirling, there's no question that regardless of the talent level, March Madness remains the best that sports has to offer. Sure I am biased, but from bubble watching to the Big East Tournament, First Four to the Final Four, there's no annual event that offers such compelling competition and a reason-to-drink-with-friends-and-gamble-frivolously than what college basketball gives us to close its season.
If you took a No. 8 seed tantamount in strength to Arizona and had it flip places with the No. 11 seed in another region, it would improve its chances of reaching the Final Four by almost 30 percent. Even the No. 15 seed is better — about 15 percent better — for these purposes.
[CU's Cory Higgins] basketball skill has earned him a place on the Preseason All-Big 12 Team and the Wooden Award preseason watch list. A lot of that skill was honed on a hoop in front of his house as a kid, just like plenty of other players. But unlike most players, his driveway basketball games featured NBA talent. His father, Rod Higgins, played in the NBA for 13 years and is now general manager for the Charlotte Bobcats.
Between their scheduled games each week, the No. 2-ranked Jayhawks must contend with some of the least forgiving, most experienced and hardest-to-outsmart opponents in college sports: a brigade of senior citizens hell-bent on making sure they go to class—and stay there.
After more than 36 hours stranded in Kansas City, the Mizzou basketball team was scheduled to fly to Oklahoma City around 11:30 a.m. and bus to Stillwater for tonight's scheduled 8 p.m. game at Oklahoma State, according to MU basketball spokesman Dave Reiter.
From Frank Martin: "Wally quit the team today. He's not happy. I kinda saw it coming because of some of his emotional situations."
I, along with hundreds of others, streamed out of the United Spirit Arena in Lubbock tonight at the under 12:00 media timeout with our Red Raiders down 30. It felt like the "walk of shame". It felt like such a charade. I mean, if the players and coaches can’t do a better job…and the fans are apathetic…then why even bother? It makes me sad. We have a wonderful basketball facility and a fan base that, while certainly not the most basketball crazy in the conference, has supported winners in the past. When The General was leading the team, attending the basketball games was something that you scheduled for. Now that Pat is at the helm, I can’t help but feel that fans are scheduling around the games. Frankly, I don’t blame them. But the worst part of it is, I can’t help but think that it will only get worse before it gets any better. We start four seniors (who have been very disappointing) and our underclassmen aren’t exactly McDonald’s All-Americans. The rest of the Big 12 has passed us by.
2:13 is not just a verse in the bible…it was also Tech’s assist to turnover ratio tonight. But they made up for it by being out rebounded 39-23. Oh yeah, they also shot 0-11 from beyond the arc.
University or Texas = Marshawn Lynch
Texas Tech = New Orleans Saints Defense
