Roy-Williams

The Tar Heels are back in the Title Game game for the 2nd straight year. One thing that should come to an end is questioning Roy Williams coaching ability. He is one of the best of all time. That’s a fact. He’s been to 9 Final Fours, and 2 National Titles – with a chance …

NIT Championship loss doesn’t detract from Josh Pastner’s solid first season at Georgia Tech.

Josh_2

Georgia Tech lost in the NIT Championship game 88-56 to TCU. The Horned Frogs were the better team. They spread Georgia Tech defensively out and seemed to knock down every open shot. It was a tough way for the Yellow Jackets to finish a 21-16 season. That said the loss shouldn’t take away from Josh …

The NCAA won’t go to Las Vegas… Why???

Kennard

As I followed along as Mark Emmert’s news conference this evening from the Final Four, I noticed a what seems to be a throw away topic. Emmert stated that Las Vegas “will not be eligible for this round.” This got me to thinking. Why does the president of the NCAA believe that Las Vegas will …
