  • Think you know the Final Four teams? You may be surprised

    Think you know the Final Four teams? You may be surprised
    Sorry, Cinderella. That includes you, Gonzaga, who still has never been to the Final Four. This year, it's all about big brother. Uh, as in college basketball powerhouses, not the synonym for an intrusive government. Anyway, they are all stocked with...
  • Coach's paradise: Sky's Chatman talks Final Fours

    Coach's paradise: Sky's Chatman talks Final Fours
    If anyone in Chicago understands what players and coaches experience in the Final Four, it's Pokey Chatman. Before she was the Sky's coach, Chatman led the LSU women's team to a pair of Final Fours (2005-06). Not surprisingly, she's practically giddy...
  • Undefeated Kentucky reminiscent of unbeaten UNLV in 1991

    Undefeated Kentucky reminiscent of unbeaten UNLV in 1991
    John Calipari has hair and does not chew on towels, and none of his players is likely to appear as Grandmama in a shoe company pitch. Otherwise, the parallels between Kentucky 2015 and Nevada-Las Vegas 1991 are striking. Calipari's Kentucky squad is the...
  • Kentucky's Calipari Works The System

    Kentucky's Calipari Works The System
    It could've easily been called the John Calipari Fantasy Camp. The Kentucky coach invited NBA scouts and GMs to a first-of-its-kind workout before the start of the season, so they could get a look at what all these future pros can do. Calipari wanted to...
  • Three No. 1 seeds in the Final Four

    Three No. 1 seeds in the Final Four
    If you liked the look of last year's Final Four, you will love the 2015 edition. One game — Kentucky vs. Wisconsin — is not only a matchup of two No. 1 seeds, it's a replay of last year's semifinal won by Kentucky, 74-73. Seventh-seeded...
  • Bucky Badger is the people's Final Four candidate

    Bucky Badger is the people's Final Four candidate
    Forgive me for injecting politics into sports, but I can't help feeling like beleaguered voter as I look at the Final Four. Duke would be Jeb Bush. Kentucky would be Hillary Clinton. I would be ready for somebody new, and I suspect I'm not the only...
  • Whitley: Kentucky Wildcats are great, but they aren't greatest ever

    Whitley: Kentucky Wildcats are great, but they aren't greatest ever
    Contrary to rumor, Kentucky will not replace the Miami Heat in the NBA playoffs. But as the Wildcats storm closer to the first perfect season in 39 years, one question is becoming louder. Is this the greatest college basketball team ever? No, though...
  • Kentucky crushes West Virginia 78-39 to advance to NCAA's Elite 8

    Kentucky crushes West Virginia 78-39 to advance to NCAA's Elite 8
    CLEVELAND — Throughout its three NCAA tournament games, the question almost never has been whether Kentucky would win its games but whether the Wildcats would face a serious challenge. Kentucky still is looking for one. The only question...
  • How 'bout them 'Eers?

    As someone who has lived in the Baltimore-Washington region since 1981, I am sympathetic to the fact that no "local" teams are still alive in the NCAA men's basketball tournament with Virginia Commonwealth (which I'm not sure is even local), Georgetown,...
  • Great Coaches? Don't Ever Count Out Tom Izzo

    Great Coaches? Don't Ever Count Out Tom Izzo
    SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Using the Jeff Jacobs eyeball metric, a metric not nearly as scientific as FiveThirtyEight over at ESPN, Rick Pitino is the best game manager in college basketball. Of course, when I wrote that three years ago, Jim Calhoun opened a...
  • Tyler Ulis's impact at Kentucky not a surprise

    Tyler Ulis's impact at Kentucky not a surprise
    There may be some college basketball observers surprised by the success of Kentucky freshman Tyler Ulis. Just don't include the many locals who watched Ulis dominate the competition during a four-year reign at Marian Catholic among the naysayers. Many...
