The following mock draft is not based on what I think will happen but rather what I think each team should do with their picks during the lottery. Enjoy.

1st Pick, 1st Round – Cleveland Cavaliers – Derrick Williams, Forward, Arizona

I’ve been saying ever since the Cavaliers won the lottery [...]

Can Kemba Carry Connecticut To A Title?

As each round goes by in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, it’s becoming more and more obvious that if you have just one great player at the college level, you can win the national championship. I know this is not a new idea and that the superstar theory also extends to other sports (hot pitcher [...]

VCU, Smart Shaka-ing The World

By now you know the tale of the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams. On selection Sunday, the Rams were chosen as an #11 seed that would take on the USC Trojans in the First Round of the NCAA Tournament in what was technically a play-in game for the real tournament that started in the second [...]

My Elite Eight Picks – Day 1

My Sweet Sixteen Picks – Day 1

My bracket is doing pretty well right now. I’m in fourth place in my major pool and I’ve got all four of my Final Four teams still alive. I predicted Pittsburgh’s exit, I called Texas’ demise and I even correctly predicted the Richmond/Moorehead State 12/13 match-up. Here’s who I have winning today’s four Sweet [...]

Taking A Look At The Top Seven Prospects For The 2011 NBA Draft

With regular season play winding down and with Tournament season right around the corner, it’s time to start looking at the best NBA prospects playing at the college level right now. After a strong 2009 crop, the 2010 Draft was rather weak and hasn’t produced more than a handful of difference makers this season. [...]

Islanders Fall To Aggies In Home Opener

CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS (But The Game Is On)  – The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders played their first game in the American Bank Center of the season Monday night, losing 86-65 to sister school Texas A&M in front of the second largest crowd in school history. It was a very ugly game for the Islanders, [...]

Top Performers From Day Five Of The NCAA Tournament

The guy who dunked on LeBron: Though his season is now over, Jordan Crawford had a masterful performance. He didn’t dominate the entire game. Heck, you could even say he had a poor game overall, missing 16 of his 29 shots, some of which would get most players pulled out of the game if [...]
