    These awards would do well to be clear about their criteria. Every year I see pro sports "MVP" discussions parse the living hell out of the word valuable...does it mean "best" or "most talented" or...

    Nice post. I'd add that bigs who can distribute at the level of Jokic or Sabonis are also highly valued. Timme is a tremendous passer which may help his prospects.

    A bit OT, but I've always...

    There's a certain Gonzaga coach that might remember those guys very well.

    I think the height factor really comes into play in the ability to switch screens. It's one thing being 6'2" and guarding...

    Few's game plan was outstanding. Completely neutralized USC offensively and absolutely carved up the zone.

    The versatility of Gonzaga defensively is really something to watch. The broadcast team...

    - Crisp, strong passes
    - Strong hands with the ball
    - Go at Mobley and draw fouls inside
    - Don't settle for contested 3's, attack zone relentlessly
    - Defensive rebounding

    Yep. Height is but one factor to consider from a physical measurement standpoint and "deficiencies" in height can be largely negated by vertical, quickness, reaction speed, etc.

  8. What is your "pet peeve" myth in College Basketball?

    A while in between games, and reading comments after the Oklahoma game got me thinking about this topic. I am always interested in myths/cliches/etc that are logically or factually not valid....

    Two awful calls on that. It drives me crazy how inconsistent refs are with that call. It's like the common factor is whether the guy driving falls down.

    It absolutely did. The "run out the clock" and stop running the offense with 3 minutes left just ruined a golden opportunity for an upset.

    I'm sure there are some reasons, valid or not, but I really can't figure out the NCAA's decision making process here. March Madness is the golden goose. You do EVERYTHING you can to protect it and...
