SCS.comSWEET SIXTEEN PREVIEW: INDY REGIONAL
March 27, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Indianapolis regional features the lowest seed to advance to this point in 12th seeded Arizona. The Wildcats will take on national number one Louisville on Friday night, with the winner moving on to battle the winner of second-seeded Michigan State and third-seeded Kansas. Will the Wildcats, perhaps the final team to earn their way into the field of 65, continue their run, or will the Big East dominance in the NCAA Tournament....[MORE]

SCS.comSWEET SIXTEEN PREVIEW: MEMPHIS REGIONAL
March 26, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
Like the Boston regional, the Memhphis regional has sent each of its top four seeds into the round of sixteen this weekend. Top-seeded North Carolina held off a feisty LSU squad to advance and will take on fourth-seeded Gonzaga, who needed a last-second shot to take down pesky Western Kentucky to make the trip south. Second-seeded Oklahoma, meanwhile, was able to take down Michigan and....[MORE]

SCS.comSWEET SIXTEEN PREVIEW: GLENDALE REGIONAL
March 24, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
Despite the absence of head coach Jim Calhoun in round one, Connecticut rumbled through its first two NCAA games without much issue. Memphis, meanwhile, dodged a pair of bullets from Cal State Northridge and Maryland to advance to Glendale, while Missouri also won a pair of hard-fought battles to make their way to the Sweet Sixteen. Fifth-seeded Purdue took care of Northern Iowa in their opener and then....[MORE]

SCS.comSWEET SIXTEEN PREVIEW: BOSTON REGIONAL
March 23, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
The opening round of action in the Boston region settled very little, as all four of the top seeds advanced to the round of sixteen, set to take place at the TD Banknorth Garden this Thursday and Saturday. Top-seeded Pittsburgh will take on Xavier, while Duke will battle Villanova in the opening round of games that features four teams playing relatively close to home. Thursday's winners meet on Saturday to determine....[MORE]

SCS.comPLANTING THE SEEDS FOR BLOOMING IN JUNE
March 20, 2009
By Jason, SCS.com Staff Writer
Seeding is a big topic this time of the year. From flowers in the garden to seeding the front lawn or discussing their hardwood brackets, people are talking about seeding. College Baseball is no different than wanting flowers to blume in June. It is time to start planting seeds right now. This week's preview takes us to Charlottesville, Virginia, where the series between the Hurricanes and the Cavaliers has potential seeding implications....[MORE]

SCS.comNCAA TOURNEY PREVIEW: INDIANAPOLIS
March 18, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
There isnít much of a potential for upsets in the Indianapolis region, so Iím sorry to disappoint you. It does, however, include the nationís hottest team, the most controversial bubble team, and a loveable newbie out of the Summit League. Rather quietly, Louisville ascended to the top overall seed of the NCAA tournament by winning the Big East regular season and conference tournament titles. All year long, the Cardinals....[MORE]

SCS.comNCAA TOURNEY PREVIEW: MEMPHIS
March 17, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Memphis region features one of the most anticipated individual match-ups in the tournament should Oklahoma and North Carolina meet up. Carolinaís Tyler Hansbrough and Oklahomaís Blake Griffin could provide a clash that the other eight players on the court may want to steer clear. The Tar Heels also have a difficult road to the Final Four; each round presents a potential tough game for Roy Williamsí squad....[MORE]

SCS.comNCAA TOURNEY PREVIEW: BOSTON
March 16, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
As with any bracket, top seed Pittsburgh is the favorite to advance to Detroit out of the Boston region. Donít be so quick to anoint the Panthers the Final Four representative, however. Boston also includes Duke at the bottom as the two seed, a dangerous Villanova team out of the Big East, and a Texas team that once found itself ranked in the top 10. Itís hard to find a weakness for Pittsburgh. The Panthers have a caretaker....[MORE]

SCS.comNCAA TOURNEY PREVIEW: GLENDALE
March 16, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Glendale region feature perhaps the nationís two most talented teams in number one seed Connecticut and the second seed in Memphis. Obviously these are the fourth and fifth seeds overall, but could provide the best game of the whole tournament in the Elite Eight. The region also boasts some interesting storylines involving BCS conference teams taking on mid-majors in all but two first round battles, and one of those....[MORE]

SCS.comONE WEEKEND LEFT BEFORE BIG DANCE BEGINS
March 13, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
Six overtimes wasnít enough for me last night. I want more basketball! Luckily, Iíll be glued to the TV from now until the Final Four in April (and really, Iíve been sedentary since November). Hereís what you need to see on the final weekend before the NCAA tournament. Both of the ACC games today resulted in near-upsets. Virginia Tech took North Carolina to the wire but eventually lost by three, while Florida State knocked off....[MORE]

SCS.comCONFERENCE PLAY IS UPON US ALREADY
March 13, 2009
By Jason, SCS.com Staff Writer
Spring is just around the corner. That is what the old adage says anyway. Well, that corner is here on the diamond. March came in like a lion but certainly will not be going out like a lamb. Conference play started in the ACC last weekend and other conferences begin play tonight. Our conference weekend preview will highlight the series taking place between Florida and Arkansas. Who will take it? We will give you our....[MORE]

SCS.comBREAKING DOWN THE BUBBLE
March 10, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
As the final week prior to selection Sunday arrives, the final mad scramble for those last at-large berths intensifies. Itís a last chance to knock off a Michigan State or North Carolina and leave a good impression on the selection committee. Itís also a last chance opportunity to win your respective conferenceís tournament and earn an automatic bid, but only 31 teams will receive a berth of that sort. Here is a conference....[MORE]

SCS.comPREVIEW: CONFERENCE TOURNAMENTS
March 9, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
So I covered the Missouri Valley Conference tournament in St. Louis this weekend at Scottrade Center. I ate a bunch of food, sat on press row, heard Dana Altman admonish his teamís performance in the hallway during half time, saw a Creighton buzzer beater and watched an overtime title game. For the most part, I represented SouthernCollegeSports.com moderately well. But now, itís time to cover the conference....[MORE]

SCS.comREGULAR SEASON, LEAGUE TOURNEYS MIX
March 6, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
There might be too much basketball on this weekend. Itís overwhelming. Even for me. Never mind that numerous conference tournaments conclude over the next few days. Pittsburgh and Connecticut will meet to decide the Big East title, North Carolina and Duke will battle for ACC supremacy and dozens of teams on NCAA tournament life-support will fight for the right to party in the Big Dance. No human could possibly catch all....[MORE]

SCS.comNOTABLE ITEMS AROUND THE DIAMOND
March 4, 2009
By Jason, SCS.com Staff Writer
Despite the uniform start date, Jack Frost has been nipping at the nose of college baseball around the country. This has not stopped teams from playing too much. The action has begun...boy has it ever. Teams are already making lots of noise. March is here and conference play is just about to start already. Yes, there is something other than that other "madness" taking place this month. For starters, the Oregon....[MORE]

SCS.comBUBBLE THIEVES LOOMING IN TOURNEYS
March 3, 2009
By Larry, SCS.com Staff Writer
Well March is here and that can only mean one thing, March Madness. It is time for coaches to spend an extra hour in the office studying opponents, players to shoot an extra free throw at the end of practice, and for fans to lose a couple hours of sleep each night waiting on that west coast score. The latter certainly applies to those fans of teams desperately hanging onto the bubble. If you find your team as one of the last teams in the....[MORE]

SCS.comLAST WEEK OF REGULAR SEASON PLAY BEGINS
March 2, 2009
By Daniel, SCS.com Staff Writer
One more week? Canít be. We just got started! Conference tournaments for smaller conferences donít tip off until this weekend, so this Weekly Preview will be the last one without any post-season prognostications. My advice to you: enjoy the regular season while you can. March Madness can wait. Over the next four days, teams will be fighting for their NCAA tournament lives in desperate fashion, and it all culminates....[MORE]
