Daily Dribble: Big 12 Top 25 Players

October 15th, 2007
Big 12

With some of the best newcomers in the country, the Big 12 is building an underrated talent-base. While teams like Kansas and Texas get attention, the bottom half of the league still has some quality players.

1. Brandon Rush, SG, Kansas - Iffy pick for #1, but can do it all if healthy
2. DJ Augustin, PG, Texas - Has a chance to be the nation's best point guard
3. Michael Beasley, PF, Kansas State - Freshman is a preseason CHN All-American
4. Aleks Maric, C, Nebraska - Hard to argue with 19 and 9 per game

Three-Point Line: Breaking Down the Pros & Cons

May 16th, 2007
ACC

So the NCAA Rules Committee has recommended moving the three-point line back a foot, from 19’ 9” from the hoop to 20’ 9”. Over the past several days I have read numerous reactions to this proposed modification, which, if approved, will be implemented in the 2008-2009 season. Responses run the gamut from supportive to bitterly opposed, with quite a few doses of relative indifference lying indolently in the middle.

- Amazingly, only one of the country's Top 50 scorers is left in the NCAA Tournament. Chris Lofton ranks 18th nationally in ppg at 20.6 per game. The next best scorers left are Tyler Hansbrough at 64th nationally (18.1 per game) and then Acie Law at 67th (17.9 per game).

- In rebounds its a little bit better, Greg Oden and Aaron Gray are tied at 16th nationally with 9.7 per game.

Daily Dribble: 1/13

January 13th, 2007
Big 12

Last year, when I had more time on my hands, I tried to predict just about every game during the week. I just went with my guy, and quickly picked all the winners regardless of the spread, and I'd usually come out with a 75-80% success rate. Saturday was the type of day that made predicting games so fun. 21 of the Top 25 teams are in action.. not to mention dozens of other great games.

Even though its only noon here in the Central Time Zone, there's already one major upset in the works. CAA leading Hofstra is losing to 4-12 Northeastern by 10 with 10 minutes to go. The Pride are coming off a huge overtime win at Drexel, their biggest win of the year. Hofstra's struggled away from home all year, but apparently they thrive in Philly, as they've beaten both Drexel and St. Joseph's. With VCU hosting a very beatable Towson team, the Pride could fall a game back in the standings.
