Ivy League: Coach Ranking

December 4th, 2008
Ivy League Basketball

Ranking the 8 Ivy League coaches is no easy task:  One of them has never been a head coach before, two others coached their 1st Ivy games last year, and none have served a full decade as an Ivy head coach.  As we get ready for another college basketball season, here is a look at who is doing the best job of keeping up with the Joneses...literally.


1. Glen Miller - Penn

(223-184 record in 17 years as head coach at Connecticut College/Brown/Penn)

Metro Ranking and Report: Update #1

December 3rd, 2008
ArmyWe're just about finished with the first month of the season in the metropolitan area, and it's become quite obvious who the best team in the area is right now. Seton Hall has gotten off to a 6-1 start, which includes a pair of gutty comebacks in Puerto Rico to finish third in that in-season tournament. Jeremy Hazell has shown himself to be one of the most explosive scorers in the Big East; what has come in his sophomore campaign (23.3 ppg; tops in the Big East) is a level of consistency that wasn't always present last season.
