Don’t doubt Roy, North Carolina back in the title game.

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 …

@dennisdoddcbs and @dcaraviello call out SI Kid’s Reporter at NCAAs, then have to apologize.

Martin

You know that filter in your head that stops you from saying what you are thinking? For a couple of members of the sports media, that little filter apparently stopped working. @dcaraviello of the @PostandCourier and @dennisdoddcbs of CBSSports.com had these comments about about a SI Kid Reporter asking questions at the NCAA Tournament.
