Winners and losers of the NBA Draft

June 24, 2017

  The draft winners and losers are headlined by the Minnesota Timberwolves who acquire small forward, Jimmy Butler from the Chicago Bulls.       Malik Monk sat for a bit longer than most thought, while the Sacramento Kings traded their 10th overall pick for the 15th and 20th picks respectively.       Some guys climbed to the first round while others fell to the second.      …


Who the Toronto Raptors should target in the draft

June 22, 2017

  The Toronto Raptors head into tonight’s NBA Draft with one pick-23rd overall in the first round. With key free agents going into the off-season, Toronto will need to find a piece that fits their current situation in this upcoming draft.       It is looking more and more likely that Kyle Lowry will not resign with the team. Patrick Patterson and P.J. Tucker are likely out as well….


Potential 2nd round sleepers in the 2017 NBA Draft

June 21, 2017

  Drafting well in the first round is a must, if you are an NBA franchise. The teams that dig even deeper will also find gems in the second round. This year’s NBA draft has the potential to have a handful of guys who could go in the second round and find themselves on an NBA roster come opening night.       With that being said, do not be…


NCAA Basketball: Battle of heavyweights in Louisville

December 25, 2014

 (1) Kentucky Wildcats (12-0) vs (4) Louisville Cardinals (11-0) Both teams come into this game with perfect records thus far, so something will have to give.  Kentucky has a well balanced attack with nine players averaging over five points per game, which means that Louisville will have to bring their A game on defense because it is very difficult to keep up with the Wildcats, who have absolutely manhandled opponents…


NCAA Basketball: Okafor vs Kaminsky

December 3, 2014

Last night, we saw Syracuse and Michigan go down to the wire with the Wolverines pulling out the three point win.  Syracuse had plenty of chances, but turnovers consistently hurt them.  The Canes beat up on the Illini by nine with Rayvonte Rice putting up a cool 22 points and 12 rebounds.  And finally, Louisville beat a pesky Ohio State team by nine, as well. Here are three match-ups to…


NCAA Basketball: Syracuse’s inside game vs. Michigan’s perimeter

December 1, 2014

On yesterday’s schedule, we saw some powerhouse teams, take on some lesser known schools, and the results justified that.  Kentucky and Duke both won by 20 points, Villanova and Arkansas won by 31 and 17 points, respectively.  Texas and UCONN played in a very closely contested match-up, where the Longhorns ended up winning by one point.  Kansas ended up defeating Michigan State in the finals of the Orlando Classic by…


NCAA Basketball: Two battles of top 25 teams

November 29, 2014

In my last NCAA Basketball piece, I previewed three match-ups I thought would go down to the wire.  I predicted that VCU would beat Villanova by five points-I was wrong.  Villanova took it to VCU and ended up winning by 24 points.  In the second game, I stated that Michigan would beat Oregon by four or less-Michigan won by seven, thanks to the big three.  In the third and final…


NCAA Basketball is back!

November 24, 2014

Joseph Young, NCAA’s leading scorer We are finally settling into the NCAA season with about three games played thus far.  Kentucky has come out of the gates firing on all cylinders (what else is new?) with a 5-0 record, Arizona, Wisconsin and Duke have also raced out to perfect records in the early goings, while the 5th ranked Kansas team is currently 1-1, but it should be mentioned that they…


Do the Blue Devils and Jayhawks have what it takes?

January 12, 2014

Andrew Wiggins’ huge dunk versus rivals, Kansas State Virginia Cavaliers (12-4) vs (16) Duke Blue Devils (12-4) Virginia has had a dream start in ACC play going 3-0 thus, and winning each of those games by an average of 18.6 points per game.  Virginia hangs its hat on the defensive side of the floor, where they allow only 55.9 points per game, which ranks them third in the NCAA.  Duke…


January 4th NCAA Preview

January 3, 2014

Le’Bryan Nash & Marcus Smart With most teams finally getting conference play under their belts this weekend, it would only be right that I take a look at some of the key match-ups this weekend in the NCAA. Cincinnati Bearcats (12-2) vs. (18) Memphis Tigers (10-2) This should be a great match-up between two very good AAC teams. Cincinnati is coming into this game with three big wins thus far,…
