Coach of the Year Candidates: The College Basketball List

January 26th, 2012

Each week, CollegeHoops.net's Greg Mengelt presents a different College Basketball List. This week, Greg takes a look at the top candidates for Coach of the Year:

 

Xavier vs. Saint Louis: Wednesday's Preview

January 25th, 2012
Tu Holloway scored a game-high 24 pointsNeither team is currently in first place in the Atlantic 10 but if anything that magnifies the importance of Saint Louis (15-4, 3-2) heading east to take on Xavier (13-6, 4-2) at the Cintas Center. Both teams are a game out of first place in the loss column, and a closer look at the Billikens' computer numbers shows that they could use a win like this to bolster the resume.

Saturday Recap: Five Ranked Teams Fall to Unranked Opponents

January 8th, 2012
Jim Calhoun's return wasn't a triumphant one

The first Saturday of the new year proved to be far more exciting than anticipated, much to the detriment of ranked teams who took their show on the road. Removing #7 Missouri and #20 Marquette, who both lost on the road to ranked opponents (more on both of those games below), five ranked teams lost to unranked opponents with four of the losses coming on the road. The Big East provided the most intrigue, with #8 Connecticut and #9 Georgetown falling on the road while #10 Louisville lost in double overtime at home. So which of the three defeats is most concerning?

Saturday Preview: #20 Marquette at #1 Syracuse

January 7th, 2012
Dion Waiters has gotten off to a good startJust two games on the schedule for Saturday match ranked teams, one of which being #1 Syracuse (16-0, 3-0) hosting #20 Marquette (12-3, 1-1) with the visitors looking to rebound from a disappointing loss at Georgetown earlier this week. The Golden Eagles led by as many as 17 points in the second half but they went away from the "paint touches" that are so valued in Buzz Williams' program, which led to the Hoya comeback. Those paint touches will be even more important at the Carrier Dome, as Syracuse does a good job with their 2-3 zone at limiting those opportunities.

Wednesday Recap: Temple Knocks Off #3 Duke

January 5th, 2012
Khalif Wyatt led the way with 22 points

The question asked going into Temple's matchup with #3 Duke was whether or not they would be able to take care of business in the paint with the injured Micheal Eric still out. But by the end of the contest it was apparent that wasn't the biggest issue to be addressed for either team as the Owls won 78-73.

Wednesday's Preview: #22 Kansas State at #15 Kansas

January 4th, 2012
Kansas State was in control throughout Sunday nightWednesday's schedule features two match ups of Top 25 teams, but only one ranks among the better rivalries in college basketball. #22 Kansas State (11-1), winners of six straight games, takes on #15 Kansas (10-3) in Lawrence in the first of two meetings this season. And despite its rivalry status this is a series the Jayhawks have dominated of late, winning seven straight and eleven of twelve before the Wildcats won 84-68 in Manhattan last February.

Friday Afternoon Conference Tournament Happenings

March 4th, 2011
To say the least things didn't go as planned late for Chris Lowery's Salukis

You know it's March where there's midday college basketball to be discussed. Friday afternoon delivered just six games (one in progress) but there hasn't been a lack of drama. The Colonial, Missouri Valley and Southern conferences all had afternoon doubleheaders in their tournaments, with the MVC in the quarterfinals while the other two leagues are playing first round games today.

Jon Teitel's Interview Series: Georgia State's Lanard Copeland

June 11th, 2010
Georgia State Panthers

Recentl, CHN writer Jon Teitel spent some time with Georgia State basketball legend Lanard Copeland, who after spending three years in the NBA went on to have an illustrious career in Australia. In his time overseas Copeland even played with the great Andrew Gaze, who some of you may remember for his one season as a Seton Hall Pirate in 1988-89 (lost the title game to Michigan in overtime). To this day Copeland remains one of, if not the greatest, Panthers to grace the hardwood.
