Alabama players safe

27 Apr

A devastating tornado ripped through Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Wednesday. At least 25 people died in the state due to the storm. That number will likely rise. I was amazed by the immediate reaction from people on the ground in Alabama. You witnessed the tornado minutes after it touched down and ripped through the University Mall.

We all witnessed the devastation hours after the storm ripped through the college town. The damage is unspeakable.  The before and after images are stunning.

The Alabama men’s basketball team is safe, according to their coaches. Dave Telep spoke to head coach Anthony Grant via Twitter. I heard from assistant coach John Brannen late Wednesday night.

Phone lines may be down but messages are getting out there via social media. Some members of the team corresponded with family via social media, too.

UCF strikes again

18 Apr

Kevin Ware, the one-time Tennessee signee from Rockdale Co. (Ga.) High School, committed to Donnie Jones and Central Florida. It is a bit of a surprise considering he was also looking closely at UCLA, Georgia and Louisville. He is the fifth commitment for Jones and company in 2011.

Welcome to the National Hoops Report

18 Apr

Welcome to the National Hoops Report. It is back. After a year and a half hiatus, I decided to re-launch the blog. You will find stories, links, videos, recruiting, news, scoop and analysis here. I’ll try to update it as much as I can. I have a number of things up my sleeve and can’t wait to dive into some of these projects.

I will continue to blog for Jeff Goodman and FoxSports.com and continue my radio show here in Oregon.

If you are a coach and would like to reconnect, have a story idea, saw a link and think I should see it, have #SCOOP, want to write for me or just want to say hello, by all means please email me at nationalhoopsreport@gmail.com or you can follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

Be sure to subscribe to the blog or follow my RSS feed.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to a great re-launch of the National Hoops Report.
