Re: Kevin MacNamara’s justification for not voting for Rhody

Here's the point that Kevin (and all voters) should understand: The last few teams that squeak into the poll...you can make a case for and/or against any of them during any week.

Re: '18 RI SG Cole Swider (Villanova Commit)

I was at this game. I am sure this can happen to these kids at these type of events but Swider had one goal for 40 minutes. It wasn’t to win. It was to score. He released on almost every shot by Woodstock Academy. He was the 2nd tallest player on St Andrews and didn’t help rebound. He forced his sh...

Re: Kevin MacNamara’s justification for not voting for Rhody

Let's assume for a second that URI was in the Big East this year. I would think that Kevin McNamara would think URI, based on early season results of URI, head-to-head matchups, and results from other Big East teams, would fit into the top five of the Big East standings something like... 1.

Re: 1/9 | Saint Louis Billikens | 7PM (CBSSN)

Tough game to watch last night, but a win is a win. It is great to see Berry continue to improve. It is almost starting to feel like his mid range shots are automatic. Based on the midrange game I am surprised he does not have a better FT% at 67% (although that's not bad for a big). Also, thought t...
