Freshman 10: Final Regular Season Edition

March 5th, 2008
Arizona This here is the last regular edition of the Freshman 10, with end-of-year awards and tournament editions all that’s left to follow. Generally this would be viewed as some kind of final evaluation on these players and their first full season of work, but given the startling incoherence this season has provided, I still think my judgments on most of these guys are largely incomplete. In a year where mediocrity reigns, the right side of the Bubble resembles the NIT and No. 1 seeds are being passed around like Paris Hilton, it’s actually been the

Freshman 10: Beasley Leads Love

February 19th, 2008
I really wish I had something profound and interesting to say this time around but I don’t. And I think that’s kinda fitting for this time of the college hoops season. Earlier in the year we had to create things to talk about in order to justify paying attention to hoops over football and other stuff. But with the sports landscape all to itself and a season that has been exciting but void of any transcendent storylines on the court (and don’t say Memphis, Undefeated because I still can’t find anyone

Freshman 10: Kevin Love Surpasses Michael Beasley

February 6th, 2008
I should start this off by saying I am a New York Giants fan. As a result, the last few days have been pretty incredible. The Super Bowl win knocked Syracuse’s 2003 NCAA title off the top of the best sports moments of my life. For any fan, it’s fun to see upsets like that but you can’t really anticipate what it feels like when your team is on the good end of the upset (and I imagine the same is true of the opposite). And the reason I bring this up on a basketball Web site is because a game like this

Freshman 10: Eric Gordon Still #1

January 22nd, 2008
We’re roughly around the halfway point of the hoops season and, like a cry for help, teams across the country decided to band together for an utterly confounding week full of upsets, parity and upside-down conference standings. The freshmen rankings are just as muddled, with some studs tailing off and other dark horses emerging. And since there are few players that can

Freshman 10 Conference Play Primer: SEC & Pac-10

January 10th, 2008
With the New Year brings clarity. Not only has the excruciating bowl season come to an end, allowing us to focus solely on college hoops, with the occasional Patriots hatefest NFL football game mixed in here or there, but with the start of ’08 comes conference play for the BCS leagues. This means no more North Floridas or Sacramento States or Prairie View A & Ms on the schedule. No, this means we will be treated to a bevy of decent matchups on a nightly basis, providing a meaningful way to discern between squads, rather than wild guessing, or even

Freshman 10: Rookie Review

December 18th, 2007
Ah, Finals Time. The time of year where college hoops fans/writers really stretch their love of the game to find something, anything, to get excited about. Do you stand by your game and endure such classics as Duke-Michigan, UNC-Rutgers and Kansas-Ohio? Or do you cleanse the system of college hoops for awhile, replenishing the fluids for the last of the non-conference schedule and then gorge yourself on the opening week of league play once those pesky bowl games subside?
