College Basketball Tonight – March 19, 2017

by - Published March 20, 2017 in Columns, Podcasts

Welcome to College Basketball Tonight! We are down to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament, and if the first round didn’t have what you want, the second round surely did. The results of the two rounds could not be more different.

First, we look at Sunday’s action, where two No. 2 seeds went down a day after the first No. 1 seed went down. Along the way, we look at how Villanova’s loss followed from seeding issues the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee had. The Wildcats lost to a good Wisconsin team that underachieved a bit in the regular season in part from injuries, but there are plenty of arguments to be had that they were seeded lower than they should have been.

After the incredible success Brad Underwood had at Stephen F. Austin, it should’ve stood to reason that whenever he left for a bigger program that it would be watched exceptionally closely.

And yet, his move to Oklahoma State this year has seemed to generate fairly little national interest in a sport where increasingly it seems all many media want to talk about are Duke, Kentucky, freshmen and how badly the sport “needs” to move to four quarters because somehow that would keep players from committing a ton of fouls (huh?). … Continue Reading

The Morning Dish – Tuesday, March 22, 2016

With the NCAA Tournament now on recess for a few days, the coaching merry-go-round is starting to spin again.

Monday saw several vacancies filled, more created and rumors of still more to possibly come. The biggest moves both came in the Big 12, where TCU hired former Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon and Oklahoma State landed Stephen F. Austin’s Brad Underwood.

Dixon’s move to Fort Worth makes perfect sense. He was a starter on TCU’s greatest team going back almost a half a century now, the 1987 Horned Frogs who won the Southwest Conference regular season title, earned a 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the second round before dropping a gut-wrenching one-point game to Notre Dame. (Sound familiar, Stephen F. Austin fans?) … Continue Reading
