My Final Four Predictions

By Shane Bidwell

With two conventional blue blood, and rather long shots, my Final Four predictions border on downright insane. Before the action begins Wednesday with the First Four, let’s look at the four teams I believe will make it to San Antonio.

Villanova Wildcats

No surprise here. Jay Wright has built a national powerhouse at Nova and look for it to be more of the same this year. The Wildcats have an absurd 6 players scoring in double figures, led by junior guard Jalen Brunson with 19 ppg. The Wildcats are the team to beat coming out of the East. I expect Alabama to give Nova a scare in the second round but for the most part the Cats should tear right through this side of the bracket, as Purdue is their only feasible competition; and even they have been less than impressive at times.

Big Ten Tournament Preview

By Jack Hamrick

Just days away from the Big Ten tournament, each team is looking to either make their case for the NCAA Tournament, or ruin someone else’s chance at glory. This conference is built on pride and tradition, and no matter how a teams’ season has gone, they will be diving for every ball, and playing until the final whistle. Here’s a look at the favorites and sleepers for the B1G tourney!

Favorites

Michigan State

The young, run-and-gun Spartans are not only the best team in the Big Ten, but the best team in the country. Averaging about 5 blocks a game, the lengthy Michigan State Spartans are hard to score on. With four freshmen and one sophomore starting, the Spartans are young and fast, always looking to push the tempo. With future lottery pick Miles Bridges, the Spartans could be scary not only in the Big Ten Tourney, but in March as well. Read Full Article Here!

The Latest on the FBI Probe: Sean Miller Could be in Trouble

By Oliver Mauntel

In September of 2017, Arizona basketball assistant coach Emanuel “Book” Richardson was arrested following a two-year corruption and bribes investigation. Richardson reportedly accepted $20,000 in bribes and paid for a recruit to sign with Arizona. In exchange, Richardson agreed to encourage Arizona players to sign with Christian Dawkins and financial advisor Munish Sood. Dawkins worked for Andy Miller, an ASM Sports agent. Richardson has since been charged with six felonies, facing up to 60 years in prison as well as $1.5 million in fines.

In October, Arizona head coach Sean Miller denied being aware of the alleged scheme. However, recent findings imply that Miller was not only aware of the scheme, but involved. Read Full Article Here! ->
