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.

Metro Review Part 4: All-Rookie & Bottom Teams

April 14th, 2008
Monmouth

Now we come to the bottom of the poll, where there wasn’t much in the way of positives to be found this season. NJIT (0-29) completed a historically bad season, the worst winless campaign in the history of Division I basketball. With head coach Jim Casciano stepping down at season’s end the Highlanders are also in need of a head coach. Whoever steps into that opening will have a lot of work to do in terms of talent along with the confidence level of the returning players.

NYC Metro Ranking & Report: New Teams Added

January 30th, 2008
PrincetonAfter last week’s article I received an email from a Rutgers fan who wanted to know why his Scarlet Knights weren’t in the poll. Fair enough, but we’ll just ignore the fact that my inbox was empty with these requests when RU was 0-6 in Big East play. A home win over then-#18 Villanova will do that to people, and rightfully so. But to be fair, Rutgers is not the only team added. Say hello to Monmouth, Princeton and Rider, which rounds this list out at twenty-three teams. I hope that’s all, but if there’s someone else, email me at
