Wednesday Recap: Tar Heels Too Potent for Texas

December 22nd, 2011
Harrison Barnes was at his best on Wednesday

In each of North Carolina's last two games sophomore forward Harrison Barnes shot 4-for-12 from the field and scored nine points. Some may have been concerned given the fact that those performances came against Appalachian State and Nicholls State, ignoring the fact that the Tar Heels still managed to win both games by comfortable margins. Barnes is fine, as he showed in North Carolina's 82-63 win over Texas by scoring a season-high 26 points and grabbing ten rebounds in just 25 minutes of action.

Wednesday's Preview: Texas at #6 North Carolina

Harrison Barnes finished with a game-high 20 pointsRick Barnes' Texas (9-2) Longhorns have gotten off to a solid start despite heavy personnel losses from last year's NCAA Tournament team, but outside of a neutral-court win over NC State there aren't any decisions that jump off the page. Can't credit Santa with this pre-Christmas "gift" but they've got a great opportunity to pick up a quality win as they visit #6 North Carolina (10-2). One key for Texas' prospects this season is the play of freshman point guard Myck Kabongo (10.8 ppg, 6.0 apg), and the Canadian has shown signs by the game that he'll be alright.

College Hoops Wednesday Recap: Barnes, Strickland Lead Heels

Harrison Barnes finished with a game-high 20 points

There was one big question for North Carolina going into their game with Wisconsin in the final night of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge: would they be able to play effectively in a tempo nowhere near what they look to establish on a nightly basis? Thanks to a second half run from Harrison Barnes and the excellent defense of Dexter Strickland, the Tar Heels passed said test with a 60-57 win over the Badgers in Chapel Hill.

College Hoops Sunday Recap: Atlantic 10 Earns Two Titles

November 28th, 2011
Kevin Dillard led the way for Dayton

Sunday set up to be a big day for the Atlantic 10 with Dayton (Old Spice Classic) and Saint Louis (76 Classic) playing in the title game of their respective in-season tournaments. And even better for the conference is that both picked up wins, displaying the depth of a league thought by many to be Xavier, Temple and 12 other teams before the season began.

Kevin Dillard is the Flyers' leading scorer

The title game of the Old Spice Classic may not be the kind of matchup that leads off SportsCenter like say, North Carolina/Kentucky next week, but it is a contest that we could look back on in March when discussing tournament resumes. Dayton (4-1) and Minnesota (6-0) meet in the title game, with both surviving a pair of close games to reach this point.

College Hoops Friday Recap: Huskies, Seminoles Fall in Bahamas

November 26th, 2011
UConn saw its 16-game win streak end Friday

Prevailing wisdom had Florida State and Connecticut playing on Saturday in the title game of the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas. Well, they'll be playing on Saturday...but with third place on the line as both lost their semifinal games in disappointing fashion. The Huskies looked to be in good shape as they held a 50-33 lead on UCF early in the second half, despite a lackluster shooting performance from Jeremy Lamb. But it was almost as if UConn turned off their "power source", and the Knights took full advantage.

College Hoops Sunday: Your Commentary

Brian Gregory's Flyers look to win the Atlantic 10There may be more attractive games on the schedule this Selection Sunday but with the general opinion being that Penn State has done enough to get into the field of 68 that leave the Atlantic 10 final that bubble teams around the nation will tune into. Richmond got to the title game by holding Temple scoreless for the final 4:33 in yesterday's semifinal, likely giving the conference three spots in the Big Dance (Temple and regular season champ Xavier).

College Hoops Friday Recap: Perennial Bubbler Finally Gets a Break

March 12th, 2011
Seth Greenberg's Hokies finally got a breakIt's almost become an annual occurrence in college basketball: Seth Greenberg's Virginia Tech Hokies in their customary spot on the bubble. And they looked to be headed in that direction tonight against Florida State in the final quarterfinal of the night in Greensboro, trailing 27-19 at the half and shooting a brutal 17.9% from the field. The Seminoles outscored Virginia Tech 16-6 in the paint and 14-7 in bench points in the first half, and guards Malcolm Delaney and Erick Green combined to shoot 1-for-15.
