March 1st, 2011
Belmont's success a product of depth, balanceThe college basketball fan's favorite month of the year is finally upon us, as 346 teams are narrowed down to 68 before the process of determining a national champion begins. The first week is primarily a time for leagues that traditionally get just one bid to the NCAA Tournament to sort themselves out, with some of the most indelible images of "Championship Week" coming during this time. Below are the schedules for the tournaments that begin this weekend (the Big Sky still has games to play and the Sun Belt has yet to release their bracket) with some notes and predictions.

February 7th, 2011
Willie Jackson remains Centenary's all-time leading scorer

In the latest installment in his "Forgotten Legends" interview series CHN writer Jon Teitel spent some time with Centenary great Willie Jackson, the school's all-time leading scorer while also ranking second in rebounding. Aptly nicknamed "The Legend" by players when an assistant at his alma mater, Jackson is now the head coach at Loyola College Prep in Shreveport, Louisiana.  

Jon Teitel: Your nickname is "Legend". Who gave it to you, and how do you like it?

College Hoops Tuesday Recap: Badgers Hold Serve at Home

December 29th, 2010
Jordan Taylor's 21 points and 7 assists lead WisconsinIf there was one area of concern for Wisconsin going into their game against Minnesota on Tuesday night it would have been rebounding given the Golden Gophers' size up front. And sure enough Minnesota won the battle convincingly, out-rebounding the Badgers 42-24 and scoring 16 second-chance points (34-12 edge in points in the paint) on the night. But the Gophers also shot just 39% from the field, and with Wisconsin turning the ball over just two times (and going 17-18 from the foul line) it proved to be too much for the visitors at the Kohl Center.

Inniger, who played at Indiana, won 244 games in fourteen seasons at NDSU and the Bison had thirteen consecutive winning seasons under his tutelage. An associate athletic director at the school since retiring from coaching in 1992, Inniger will retire from that role next month.

Jon Teitel: At Berne HS your team went 67-0 over three straight regular seasons.

October 17th, 2010
Watson remains UMKC's all-time leading scorerIn the latest installment of his "Forgotten Legends" interview series CHN writer Jon Teitel spent some time with Missouri-Kansas City legend Michael Watson. Watson finished his career in 2004 as the school's all-time leading scorer, with one of the highlights being a 54-point performance in a double-overtime win over perennial Summit (then Mid-Continent) power Oral Roberts. After playing overseas Watson retired to become a minister.

Jon Teitel: Why did you decide to go to UMKC?

College Hoops Tuesday: Your Commentary

March 9th, 2010
Butler's Matt HowardFor all the bubble teams not playing on Tuesday night there's really just one game they need to pay full attention to: the Horizon League final between host Butler and second-seeded Wright State. Point blank: if the Raiders find a way to knock off Gordon Hayward and company at Hinkle Fieldhouse one more bid goes off the board (if you're of the thinking that Saint Mary's wasn't a lock themselves before Monday night).
