NBA Draft Daily – 12.28.2012

    Thoughts from Last Night Just watched one game last night, the Cincinnati-New Mexico slugfest.  It was an exciting ending for a game that was painful to watch at times.  Neither offense seemed to really be working in terms of creating good shots.  Alex Kirk helped spurred the Lobos on with his energy and […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.25.2012

  Yes it is Christmas Day, but there is college basketball today, so here we are with the Christmas NBA Draft Daily.  Yesterday was a day off, but we start with thoughts from the past weekend and lead to a preview of tonight's Arizona-San Diego State game. I hope everyone has wonderful holiday season and […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.20.2012

  Thoughts from Last Night -          Seth Curry and Mason Plumlee showed that they are not going to let this Duke team lose its focus, no matter who the opponent.  The 3 seniors (Curry, Plumlee, and Ryan Kelly) were a combined 18-22 from the field for 45 points.  The young guards Quinn Cook and Rasheed […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.19.2012

    Thoughts from Last Night -          Jeff Withey has a fantastic night, though to be fair, he was being covered by a lot of 6’6 and 6’7 players.  As impressive was Travis Releford who continues to play some of the best perimeter defense in the country right now.  -          Winthrop forced DeShaun Thomas into […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.18.2012

    Thoughts from Last Night -          Congratulations to Jim Boeheim on his 900th win, though it was much closer than he would have liked.  James Southerland picked up the slack with some timely perimeter shooting, and Michael Carter-Williams did a good job hitting his free throws to seal the game down the stretch.  Carter-Williams […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.17.2012

  It was a strong weekend of college hoops, with #1 Indiana getting knocked off by Butler in amazing game, Florida and Arizona battling until the final seconds, and a long list of worthy performances all around the country.  Here is a quick look at some of what I got to see: Thoughts from the […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.13.2012

  This is the slowest night of a slow basketball week with only one major matchup to watch, but it could be a good one when Wichita State heads to Tennessee.  Will Tennessee finally see 40 points again?  Before we get to that, let’s take a look back at what I saw during last night’s […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.12.2012

  Last night turned out to be an interesting night, between Rodney Williams and Trevor Mbakwe’s SportsCenter moments, Illinois’ struggle with Norfolk State, and Halil Kanacevic self-destructing against Villanova.  Tonight has some good matchups, including another battle between Wisconsin teams and some interesting West Coast games. Thoughts from Last Night ·         Michigan continues to roll […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.11.2012

  Not much in last night’s thoughts since I only watched one game, but there are definitely more games worth watching on tonight’s slate, including an always fun Big 5 matchup between Villanova and St. Joe’s, and two of the season’s biggest surprises, Illinois and Minnesota, in action.     Thoughts from Last Night   […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.10.2012

  Schools are heading into Winter exams, and the schedule will be very light this week.  Georgetown will look to get back on track tonight against Longwood, and Virginia Tech will look to put their first loss behind them.  Today, it’s time to take a quick look back at a packed weekend of college hoops. […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.7.2012

  Thoughts from Last Night A small slate of games last night, but there was plenty to get your attention:   The Syracuse offense continues to work like a well-oiled machine, and with the ability to score from any part of the court, it will be tough for opposing defenses to stop it all.  The […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.6.2012

    Thoughts from Last Night ·         It is easy to fall in love with Brock Motum’s scoring ability, but his defense is just too lax to ignore.  Kelly Olynyk is certainly skilled enough to put up points for Gonzaga, but most of his 22 2nd half points were unchallenged while Motum was guarding him.  […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.4.2012

    Thoughts from Last Night A quiet night in college hoops, minus one big story – Nebraska’s convincing win over USC.  Many touted USC as an upper-level PAC-12 team, but this team is just not ready to compete.  It’s a mish-mash of playing styles, and there is no semblance of anything close to an […]

NBA Draft Daily – 12.3.2012

  A strong slate of games this past weekend and it was a good chance to see some of the top prospects go head to head.  As non-conference games continue through the month, many teams will be focusing more on finding player combinations which will carry through to March.  This also gives us a chance […]

NBA Draft Daily – 11.30.2012

  A small Friday night schedule, but some great games, including the continuation of the Big East-SEC Challenge, so let's get right into it:     Thoughts from Last Night -          Notre Dame executed their game plan well on both ends of the floor, and deserve full credit for their win, but the most striking […]
