  • UConn Beats Butler For Third National Title

    UConn Beats Butler For Third National Title
    Somewhere along the line, disbelief was met by something that felt like design, and so in the minutes before midnight Monday at Reliant Stadium, Kemba Walker strolled across the court, kicking up streamers that had fallen from high above, and offered...
  • Deserving teams are hard to find for the NCAA Tournament

    Deserving teams are hard to find for the NCAA Tournament
    Unlike the 24-7-365 bracketologists who populate cyberspace, I refrain from serious NCAA tournament field projections until late February or early March. More for sanity and domestic bliss than anything. A double-feature of "The Fighter" and "The King'...
  • Notebook: ACC Player of the Year Nolan Smith injured in Duke's win

    Duke guard Nolan Smith, the ACC Player of the Year, may miss Saturday's conference tournament semifinals after injuring the second toe on his left foot in Friday's 87-71 quarterfinal victory over Maryland. Smith sustained the injury late in the second...
  • Teel Time: Projecting the NCAA tournament field

    And a good Selection Sunday morning to all! Just perused a mock bracket from Jerry Palm, the bracketologist whom I most respect. Our only disagreement: He has St. Mary's in instead of Colorado. One very interesting part of Palm's field: He seeded Old...
  • Monarchs to face Butler; Hampton draws Duke

    Monarchs to face Butler; Hampton draws Duke
    Last season, Old Dominion won a first-round NCAA tournament game. It was an impressive achievement, but the Monarchs left New Orleans feeling like they could have accomplished more after the high of their 51-50 win against Notre Dame faded in light of...
  • Here's what ACC teams are trying to accomplish during spring practice

    BOSTON COLLEGE Practice opened: March 15. Spring game: April 16. Key losses: OT Anthony Castonzo, DE Alex Albright, LB Mark Herzlich, DT Damik Scafe, CB DeLeon Gause, OG Thomas Claiborne, OT Rich Lapham, WR Ifeanyi Momah, DE Brad Newman, RB James...
  • Has it really been 10 years since HU's shocker over Iowa State in the NCAA tournament?

    On that historic night in Boise, Lauren Merfeld was 2 years old. Her little brother, Andrew, wouldn't be born for another four months. But when March rolls around every year, they see the evidence. Whenever CBS shows clips of past NCAA tournament shining...
  • On Campus: ODU takes show on road

    As evidenced last year in New Orleans and proven again today in Washington, D.C., Blaine Taylor's one-man one-liner show travels pretty well. Taylor, Old Dominion's often irreverant coach, took the stage at the Verizon Center for a press conference the...
  • Tourney talk: Morehead's upset, more Packer and the Tweetup

    Tourney talk: Morehead's upset, more Packer and the Tweetup
    The first real day of the NCAA tournament hasn't disappointed. We've seen a few close games, a couple of buzzer-beaters and one Cinderella step forward with a big upset. And I got paid to watch it all while eating chicken wings at Hightopps, so today...
  • Good season not good enough for Old Dominion

    By any measure, this season ranks among the best in Old Dominion's three-plus decades of Division I basketball. But it wasn't quite good enough. Such are the program's lofty standards under coach Blaine Taylor. Such were the reasonable goals for a...
  • Last-second tipin lifts Butler past ODU 60-58 in NCAA second round

    Last-second tipin lifts Butler past ODU 60-58 in NCAA second round
    In a game full of bad bounces for Old Dominion, the most devastating was the very last. Matt Howard's putback just before the final buzzer gave Butler a 60-58 win against the Monarchs in the first round of Thursday's Southeast regional, dashing ODU's...
