NCAA Tournament Interviews: Loyola (MD) Justin Drummond

March 9th, 2012
Loyola makes their long-awaited return to the Big DanceAs part of his NCAA Tournament interview series CHN writer Jon Teitel caught up with Loyola (MD) guard Justin Drummond, a key cog in the Greyhound attack as they make their first tournament appearance since 1994. Drummond, who scored eight points in Loyola's 48-44 win over Fairfield in the MAAC tournament final, was named MAAC 6th Man of the Year by the conference last week.

Jon Teitel: During your senior year at Riverdale Baptist High School you played center despite weighing less than 200 pounds. How on earth were you able to survive down in the post?

USF Picks Up a Big Win: Sunday Thoughts

February 26th, 2012
Anthony Collins led USF past Cincinnati

It wasn't pretty but USF found a way to get the job done, beating Cincinnati 46-45 to move to 11-5 in the Big East and 18-11 overall. Freshman point guard Anthony Collins made a pair of free throws with 3.4 seconds remaining to give the Bulls the win, and while it isn't a resume-building win the Bulls did the simplest thing a bubble team can do this time of the year: they won. Collins, who is going to be an outstanding point guard in the Big East as he gains experience, led USF with 14 points and five assists and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick added eight and ten rebounds.

February 16th, 2012
Drew Gordon went for 17 & 17 in the win

Wednesday night's game between New Mexico and San Diego State was a big one for the visitors, as Steve Alford's team didn't own a single win over a Top 25 team. But also on the line was sole possession of first place in the Mountain West after UNLV fell at TCU on Tuesday night.

Loyola (MD) vs. Iona: Friday Night Thoughts

February 10th, 2012
Momo Jones and Iona hit the road

Friday's schedule may be light but there's some good action to take in as direction of the Ivy and Metro Atlantic races will be determined. Iona (19-5, 11-2) and Loyola (MD) (18-5, 11-2) are tied for first place with two games separating them from the pack (Manhattan and Fairfield leading that group), and the winner would take a big step towards grabbing the regular season crown. What should viewers look forward to?

#5 Ohio State vs. #7 Indiana: Sunday Thoughts

January 15th, 2012
How IU defends Aaron Craft will help decide the game

Sunday's a quiet day with regards to the number of games on the college basketball schedule, but there's a critical matchup of Top 10 teams in Columbus as #7 Indiana (15-2, 3-2) visits. #5 Ohio State (15-3, 3-2) in their second meeting of the season. The Hoosiers won the first meeting 74-70 back on New Year's Eve, and a big reason why was the way in which they defended point guard Aaron Craft. Tom Crean threw multiple guys at the sophomore point guard, and the varying looks were a big reason why Craft turned the ball over a season-high six times.
