Gonzaga vs. Washington game preview: And the battle begins

Gonzaga vs. Washington game preview: And the battle begins

Markelle Fultz and the Washington Huskies are rolling into town. Gonzaga and Washington. It was a rivalry so fierce it imploded like a dying star and shot out a whole load of nothingness out into space. Meaningless words for a decade ensued. If you need more of an idea on what happened, we have you covered right here. Just know this, a lot of grown men (on both sides) kind of acting like babies. Either way, after last season’s early gift at The Battle 4 Atlantis, the one-and-one that was scheduled to begin finally does. This year in Spokane, next year in Seattle. Let the winning fan base...

Early Return(er)s: Quarter-Season Basketball Review

Early Return(er)s: Quarter-Season Basketball Review

A look at the early contributions by the 2nd year players and where each has improved or declined Somehow, we are approximately one quarter of the way through the college basketball season. Now that we have a month to wait before the bowl game with Alabama, I’m sure there are a lot of folks out there who are just now paying attention to Coach Romar’s squad. This is a good opportunity to get up to speed by looking at the returning players for the Huskies to assess how their roles have changed from last year. Five players who were a part of last season’s team are back this year...

2016 Jimmy V Classic Purdue vs. Arizona State: Preview, Odds, & How to Watch

2016 Jimmy V Classic Purdue vs. Arizona State: Preview, Odds, & How to Watch

Purdue has not beaten Arizona State in almost 38 years. Purdue get another major conference opponent tonight, and that is a good thing. Even if Arizona State struggles in the Pac-12, by virtue of playing in the Pac-12 their RPI and KenPom numbers should stay pretty strong. They aren’t likely to tank as far down as Rutgers last year. It is hoped that they can get into the top 100 to provide a resume boost to our NCAA profile. I say this because this is a game Purdue should win. The last two years have seen the Sun Devils be pretty mediocre, but they are in year two under former Duke...

Marquette Women’s Basketball Preview: vs UW-Green Bay

Marquette Women’s Basketball Preview: vs UW-Green Bay

The Golden Eagles look for their third straight win and first against their in-state foe since 2010. Marquette threw away a chance to be ranked in the top 25 when they lost to Santa Clara during Pacific’s Thanksgiving weekend event. That’s the only loss of the season for the Golden Eagles, and after not really suffering as a result of it last week in the AP poll, Marquette took a tumble this week. They’re down to just 15 points after 26 a week ago, so perhaps the voters suddenly realized that MU lost? Natisha Hiedeman became the second Golden Eagle to be named Big East Player of...

Maryland basketball vs. Howard preview: The Terps take a mid-major break

Maryland basketball vs. Howard preview: The Terps take a mid-major break

The Bison are the Terps’ last local opponent of the season. Maryland basketball is coming off a notable win over Oklahoma State that ended the hardest part of its non-conference schedule. After four games in eight days, the Terrapins will have had three days off before facing Howard on Wednesday. The Bison are 1-5, but are coming off their first win of the season against a team Maryland didn’t beat by much. Howard beat American 71-54, while Maryland only barely held on to a 62-56 victory to open the season against the Eagles. Howard has lost to Michigan, Marquette, and Georgetown as...

Barry Odom will win at Missouri with talent evaluation, and he’s passed his first test

What do Damarea Crockett, Cale Garrett, and Dimetrios Mason have in common? A. They were the three most successful true freshmen from Missouri’s 2016 signing class this fall. B. They all committed within two weeks of National Signing Day last winter. Gary Pinkel won 118 games as Missouri head coach; his process for success was relatively easy to describe, even if it was awfully difficult to execute. Mizzou spent significant effort landing local blue-chippers and supplemented them with under-the-radar athletes from states that were both within the conference’s umbrella and deep with...

ASU Football: What Blake Barnett’s transfer could mean for the Sun Devils in 2017

ASU Football: What Blake Barnett’s transfer could mean for the Sun Devils in 2017

“Controversy” may very well be an understatement. In a year rife with controversy and chaos for Sun Devil football, this seems like a fitting way to kick off the offseason. In a surprising and somewhat strange turn of events, Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback and former 5-star recruit Blake Barnett announced he has decided to transfer to the Arizona State Sun Devils by giving head coach Todd Graham a birthday cake. Forks Up #committed pic.twitter.com/buQWSnOuex— B² (@Blake8Barnett) December 6, 2016 This could mean a lot of things for the program; Some see Barnett as the white...
Syracuse Basketball: Anyone else feel like we’re back in the late 2000s?

Syracuse Basketball: Anyone else feel like we’re back in the late 2000s?

The way this season has played out feels like 2006, not 2016 Remember after the Wisconsin loss when I wrote a piece about how Syracuse Orange fans need to step back from the ledge and things will probably work themselves out? Yeah, so...about that. I mean, look, it IS still early December. Many a Syracuse squad has left us scratching our heads ten games into the season only to make us cheer in delight come March. But after losing to UConn, our third loss in three games away from the Carrier Dome, I’m starting to get an old familiar feeling and I don’t quite like it. The whole...

POLL: How will you watch the St. Petersburg Bowl?

Will you be in attendance or watching from home? The Mississippi St. Bulldogs will be playing in their 7th straight bowl game against the Miami (OH) Redhawks on December 26th at 10 a.m. But it's that date and time that has taken some of the excitement away from the game for fans. With the game taking place on the day after Christmas, making plans to attend the bowl has not been easy. Due to the distance and the time, if you're planning on going to the game, you'll have to arrive in St. Petersburg before the day of the game. So if you plan to go, it means you're likely going to have to...

Happy Tuesday. Today in Aggie Football History is one we can’t seem to forget, no matter how hard we try. This isn’t meant to make you feel bad.

A quick look at Maryland’s Quick Lane Bowl opponent: Boston College

A quick look at Maryland’s Quick Lane Bowl opponent: Boston College

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news. Maryland football’s opponent in the Quick Lane Bowl is a familiar one. The Terps and the Boston College Eagles have played 11 times, with Maryland bringing home the win in only three of those games. The teams were together in the ACC from 2005 to 2013, so nine of those games were in that stretch. BC and Maryland are in similar spots entering this postseason matchup, as both teams are 6-6 after going 3-9 last season. The Eagles had a slightly worse time than Maryland did, going winless in conference...

You want to watch more Pac-12 football but don't know when the bowl games are? Say no more!

The Pac-12 looks to prove one last time they are a solid conference this year. After three months of college football, the Pac-12 conference now shifts their focus to the prize at the end of the year, bowl season. The conference has 6 teams playing an extra game this year with one of those teams in the College Football Playoffs. While everything fell into place for Washington, Colorado fell just shy of making the New Years 6 while USC snuck their way into the Rose Bowl with the Colorado loss in the conference championship. If you have been curious as to which bowl games the Pac-12...

Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament hopes are fine, for now

Let’s not hit the panic button JUST yet... As Sean is very good at reminding us all, regardless of the sport, there’s no need to panic. After the Syracuse Orange suffered yet another crippling loss -- their third in four games -- on Monday night, Twitter was a difficult place to find perspective. And when you look at the remaining non-conference schedule, it’s easy to see why. SU hasn’t done itself any favors thus far. At 5-3 with three losses away from the Carrier Dome, Syracuse’s chances at padding the non-conference resume are virtually gone. Their only three quality non-ACC...
