Preview: Old Spice Classic

November 21st, 2007
George MasonFor the second year, ESPN and the MAAC will put on the Old Spice Classic at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. Last season’s tournament, won by Arkansas, was a competitive event that featured five teams who eventually played in the postseason. Will this year’s group of eight yield the same success? The answer to that question won’t be known until March, but this year’s field does have something that last year’s didn’t: one of the nation’s best freshmen. His name: Michael Beasley of Kansas State. But to focus solely on Beasley would be unfair

Big East A Big Mess: Who Will Make the Dance?

February 27th, 2007
Big East

As the end of the regular season winds down and teams across the country assess their chances of being invited to the NCAA’s version of the Royal Ball, a number of Big East teams find themselves facing an uncertain future. Georgetown and Pittsburgh earned their dance card long ago, while Louisville and Notre Dame, with some recent impressive victories, are also assured of joining the conference leaders. However, six other Big East teams are vying for anywhere from two to four slots that could potentially go to league members.

Daily Dribble: 1/30

January 30th, 2007
Villanova

I was definitely surprised at the amount of hits to the site yesterday in regards to the BracketBusters announcement. Sure, some of these are nice games, but I don't necessarily get the hubbub over one game in mid-February as opposed to any other game in February. I guess its the ESPN hype-machine at work?

One of the odd things about this year's event is that almost all the good teams were slated for home games. Assuming home teams have the advantage anyways, this ends up making a lot of these games probable one-sided affairs.

Lets knock off games that mean nothing first: Albany at Boise State, Fullerton at Wright State, ODU at Toledo, Autin Peay at Akron, Kent State at George Mason. I'll also include Ohio at New Mexico State, since the Aggies are about a 100% lock to win so its useless. These 6 games might as well not exist. You'll notice the MAC is involved in 4 of those games. Unfortunately for ESPN's selection process, the MAC is a rather boring 1-bid league this year.

Daily Dribble: Saturday Review

January 21st, 2007
New Mexico St

Biggest win on Saturday? New Mexico State upsetting #13 Nevada in a key WAC battle. This should probably be a two-bid league this year and the Aggies are the team fighting for the 2nd bid. After losing a close OT game against Louisiana Tech, NMSU bounced back for the big (huge really) win behind 29 points from Justin Hawkins. Making things better for the Aggies, they now have games against conference bottom-feeders Idaho and San Jose State coming up which should leave them at 17-4.

The MWC should also be a two-bid league, but no one besides Air Force is really locked in. The Falcons picked up a big win over San Diego State yesterday, rebounding from their 2nd loss. SDSU is now 13-6 and their hopes of an at-large bid are basically done. UNLV is the likely 2nd bid, but the Rebels are just 3-2 in league play. Home wins this week against SDSU and New Mexico are musts.
