Rick Pitino had some strong words to say about freshman PF Chane Behanan after Wednesday night's exhibition game.

It almost felt like college basketball was here on Wednesday night. Louisville was on national television, er, internet (thanks ESPN3 or WatchESPN or The Ocho or whatever it goes by these days), Kentucky was being Kentucky and a low-major favorite revealed some things to us. Continue reading

Now I wonder if he’ll be the first pick in the 2012 NBA Draft (assuming we actually have a professional basketball league to watch in 2012). Continue reading

The college basketball season is coming soon (try to control your excitement about that on this slow Monday morning) and with that comes the wackiness.

For starters, Ballin’ Is A Habit rolled out their All-Name teams. Yes, teams. Dozens of them. Amazing work, really. I’m a big fan of the All-Scrabble team. Triple word scorers anyone?

The rest of the league is trying to keep up but UK seems to have a strong hold on impact rookies. Here’s a look at who to watch this season. Continue reading
