Metro Ranking and Report #2

December 9th, 2008
ArmyThis past week marked the beginning of conference play for metropolitan area schools in the Metro Atlantic and Northeast conferences. While Army, Fordham and St. John's were out picking up non-conference wins tonight, a Garden State rivalry took center stage in the NEC with FDU visiting Monmouth. The Hawks, thanks to an efficient half-court offense and confusing matchup zone, controlled the game for the first twenty-eight minutes or so with a lead as large as fifteen points.

Metro Ranking and Report: Update #1

December 3rd, 2008
ArmyWe're just about finished with the first month of the season in the metropolitan area, and it's become quite obvious who the best team in the area is right now. Seton Hall has gotten off to a 6-1 start, which includes a pair of gutty comebacks in Puerto Rico to finish third in that in-season tournament. Jeremy Hazell has shown himself to be one of the most explosive scorers in the Big East; what has come in his sophomore campaign (23.3 ppg; tops in the Big East) is a level of consistency that wasn't always present last season.

College Basketball: 20 Random Thoughts & Observations

Michigan State20 Random Rants, Thoughts, and Observations from the Week in College Basketball by CollegeHoops.net Editor Shawn Siegel:

1 - This has unexpectedly become a weekly thing, so except 20 more random rants every Tuesday from now on.

2 - There's another Curry on the lose. Steph's brother Seth is quietly emerging as the star of an upstart Liberty squad that is 5-1. The Flames already have a win over Virginia, and just won an OT game against a quality George Mason side. Curry is already averaging 22 ppg.. as a freshman.

Fantasy College Basketball: All-Around Standouts

November 27th, 2008
Stephen Curry - DavidsonJon Teitel sifts through the early season stats to find this year's emerging all-around standouts. To qualify for as standout, the player must meet the minimum requirements of each statistical category. Team record, however, is shown merely for reference purposes. Note Steph Curry and Ben Woodside are the only guys to make two groups. On a pure points/rebounds level, no one can top Blake Griffin right now, but he misses out here due to the lack of block shots (only .4 bpg).
