Pac-10: All-January

February 12th, 2008

Without a doubt the hardest conference to determine its top monthly players is the Pac-10. This is especially true when it comes to the front court players, where such luminaries as Chase Budinger and Ryan Anderson didn’t make the cut. So after much deliberation, here is the All-January Pac-10 team.

Left Coast Report: Why Do I Want to See the Lopez Twins Fight?

February 5th, 2008
StanfordThe Lopez twins, Robin and Brook, have hit a chord with basketball fans by combining two qualities that captivate with a child like awe – height and identical genes. Growing up there are certain traits that inevitably draw our interest – size being one of the most obvious. Whether it is dinosaurs, fire trucks, or space, we are drawn to things that are larger than life. For basketball fans, a 7 footer summons up that same child like intrigue. These feelings cause NBA GMs (especially in Seattle) to waste pick after pick on seven-foot projects.

Team of the Week: Stanford

February 3rd, 2008
StanfordIn the toughest conference in college basketball, road wins separate the top of the Pac-10 from those simply vying for a NCAA berth.  Stanford (18-3, 7-2 in the Pac-10) came into this week ranked, but with a less than ambitious non-conference schedule that included a loss to Siena.  Questions remained whether Stanford was a true threat to the top of the conference.

Brook Lopez Ineligible for Fall Semester

October 6th, 2007

Stanford received a blow on Friday when Brook Lopez was ruled ineligible for the first semester. Lopez, a Collegehoops.net Preseason All-American, could possibly return for a December 19th game against Santa Clara if he gets everything in order promptly.

Lopez missed the season's first five games last year due to injury, so this is a position that Stanford is used to. In his absence, the Cardinal will simply have to rely more on his brother Robin.

Siegel Thoughts: Day One Review

- All the talk all season about how Greg Paulus was the problem for Duke.. and suddenly he's the only guy keeping him in the game. What was odd about his 25 point effort is how many times he got into the lane.. and if he just had that killer scorers instinct down low, he probably could have had a half dozen more.

- VCU's Eric Maynor (22 points) picked up where he left off in the CAA Finals when he had 20, 7, and 4 assists.
