College Hoops Wednesday Recap: Kentucky Clamps Down on Irish

December 9th, 2010
Terrence Jones led the way for KentuckyComing off of a tough loss at North Carolina, which featured a somnambulant Terrence Jones failing to shake off the after-effects of a pregame nap, the Kentucky Wildcats needed to get back on the winning track. And after a slow start against Notre Dame in the second game of the SEC/Big East Invitational, John Calipari's team woke up late in the first half and carried that effort over after the break. The end result: a 72-58 win for the Wildcats at Freedom Hall to give the SEC a sweep of the first two games (another doubleheader will be played in Pittsburgh on Saturday).

Notre Dame forward Tim AbromaitisEleven games involving Top 25 teams are on the schedule for tonight, with the lone meeting of ranked teams taking place in the second game of the SEC/Big East Invitational doubleheader at Freedom Hall. Notre Dame, winners of the Old Spice Classic, takes on a Kentucky team that's coming off of a close loss at North Carolina over the weekend. While many are obsessing over the question as to whether or not the school's appeal of Enes Kanter's suspension is upheld, the true concern for John Calipari's team right now may be the play at the point despite that lack of frontcourt depth.

CHN writer Jon Teitel recently spent some time talking with one of the most improved players in the Big East, Notre Dame forward Tim Abromaitis. Abromaitis and the rest of the Fighting Irish will take on Old Dominion on Thursday in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. 

Jon Teitel: Your older brother Jason played at Yale. What did he teach you about the sport, and who is the better player?
Tim Abromaitis: Since he is older, he was always beating me in 1-on-1. He taught me how to be competitive and have a good work ethic.

Big East Thursday: Syracuse Falls and Loses Onuaku

How serious is Arinze Onuaku's injury?Going into the Big East Tournament there wasn't much concern in regards to whether or not the Syracuse Orange would be a one-seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. Prevailing wisdom had Jim Boeheim's team doing more than enough before this weekend to wrap up the top spot in one of the other three regions (can't stay in the East since the Carrier Dome hosts a regional).

Montana was dead to rights late in the first half, trailing by 22 points and going into the locker room down 20 at intermission. No way could they come back on the road and keep Weber State from punching their ticket to the NCAA Tournament. The final twenty minutes were supposed to be a coronation for the Wildcats, most of America thought. 

Well, Anthony Johnson made sure that we all thought wrong. 

Big East Wednesday Recap: Welcome Back, Mr. Harangody

March 11th, 2010
Big East BasketballLuke Harangody was a First Team All-Big East selection and it was an honor that many questioned this week due primarily to his knee injury. The senior played just eleven minutes in Saturday's regular season finale at Marquette and the question of many was whether or not his return would hamper the surging Irish in their quest for an NCAA Tournament bid. Well, you got your answer. Harangody came off the bench to score 20 points and grab 10 rebounds, essentially being the difference-maker in Notre Dame's 68-54 win over Seton Hall.
