The success of the current freshmen class has been well documented. Between Michael Beasley, Kevin Love, Eric Gordon, Derrick Rose, Jerryd Bayless, Donte Green, and O.J. Mayo, the class boasts plenty of future lottery picks and likely NBA stars.

Daily Bracketology: Wednesday's Update

Seven Day Stretch: The Week in College Hoops

February 8th, 2008
Okay, this may now become a curse…I have written this column two times now and each time I’ve written about a savior (team), that team, or teams, seems to flop the following week. This past week’s victims are the teams from New Jersey, specifically Seton Hall and Rutgers who were both 0-fer for the week in the Big East.
