SCS.comFINAL FOUR FAVORITES? NO, JUST #1 SEEDS
February 28, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
With less than two weeks until Selection Sunday, everyone is talking about bubble teams and whether they are "in or out" as of today. Well, once the NCAA Tournament actually starts, those teams usually don't matter when discussing the Final Four. The first teams people begin talking about when mentioning Indianapolis are usually the top four squads in the country, likely to be the #1 seeds. Most experts seem to think that the top....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM BRACKET PROJECTION #4
February 28, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
With March Madness creeping closer and closer with each passing day, it's time to take a look at who is in and who is out of the 2006 NCAA Tournament. Each week throughout the remainder of the college hoops season, we'll take a look at the complete field of sixty-five. In addition to seeding all of the squads, we also project where their first round matchup will take place and how the four regions will be paired....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEK AHEAD
February 26, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
It's the final week of the regular season and the month of March will be here in a couple of days, so by all means, let the Madness begin! Though the theme so far this year seems to be teams playing themselves out of the Tournament, there are a number of spots still available and a select few squads trying to earn their way in. There are also quite a few major conferences still trying to determine their regular season champ....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEKEND AHEAD
February 24, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
It's coming down to crunch time, not only for the bubble teams but also for those that are looking to capture regular season conference titles. The Big XII's best two squads, Kansas and Texas, will go head-to-head in Austin, while the Big East's top two teams, Villanova and Connecticut, will do battle on Saturday as well. Also keep an eye on the Big South where Winthrop and Birmingham Southern will match up with the winner....[MORE]

SCS.com17 DAYS, 17 BUBBLE TEAMS
February 23, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Selection Sunday, the most glorious of days, looms on the horizon. In just seventeen days, the bracket for the national championship will be set (except for that pesky play-in game), and offices across the country will be sent into a pooling frenzy akin to Caddy Day at the Bushwood County Club pool (from 1:00 pm to 1:15 pm, of course). With exactly seventeen days to go, let us look at seventeen teams fighting for their lives....[MORE]

SCS.comA BUBBLE TEAM'S WORST NIGHTMARE
February 22, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
It happens every year. A major conference team comes out of nowhere in their conference tournament to make it to the championship and, in some cases, win the title. It also happens in some mid-major conferences that were expected to get one bid but then send two dancing because of upsets in the league tournaments. The aforementioned situation is a nightmare for bubble teams hoping to get bids to the NCAA Tournament. When....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEK AHEAD
February 19, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
It's hard to believe it, but this is the last full week of February. That's right; nearly 20% of 2006 is gone, and a much larger portion of the college hoops season has already passed us by. Not that the biggest of hoops fans mind, however. And why? Because that means March Madness is almost here, and a large number of teams seem to be having trouble closing the deal on their plans for the upcoming month. The good....[MORE]

SCS.comONE ON ONE WITH MITCH HILLIGOSS
February 17, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Purdue University second baseman/shortstop Mitch Hilligoss was kind enough to take time for a SCS.com exclusive interview a short time ago. The junior has led the Boilers in batting average each of his first two seasons on campus, and his .404 average in 2005 was the best in the entire Big Ten. He was named a Third Team All-American by the NCBWA at season's end a year ago, and Hilligoss has already been selected....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEKEND AHEAD
February 17, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
It's "Bracket Buster" weekend all across the country. What does that mean? It means that in addition to the regularly scheduled showdowns like Connecticut's trip to West Virginia and Georgetown's visit to Villanova, we'll also be blessed with more than a dozen very meaningful battles between top-flight mid-major teams, a group of matchups determined just a few weeks ago. Among those showdowns is Bucknell's venture to....[MORE]

SCS.comCRUNCHING NUMBERS: THE RPI
February 16, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
R-P-I. It has become an acronym as familiar as NCAA or ESPN to die hard college basketball fans. Casual fans look at the RPI and wonder how a team like #23 RPI Cincinnati (16-9, and unranked in the polls) is rated ahead of a team like #35 RPI George Washington (20-1, #7 AP and #8 Coaches' Poll). With apologies to The Grinch and Dr. Suess, one could puzzle and puzz 'til their puzzler was sore and never figure out....[MORE]

SCS.comA PREVIEW OF THE SEC EAST
February 16, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
The SEC East had a very strong year in 2005. The West dominated the conference in 2003 and 2004, but the East was the strongest division a season ago. The Florida Gators were one win away from winning the College World Series, and Tennessee made a surprise trip to Omaha. The Gamecocks of South Carolina had a good run, which has become the norm in Columbia since Coach Tanner's arrival. Florida, South Carolina....[MORE]

SCS.comALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF
February 15, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
When a team wins a National Championship, everyone looks to the stars of that group and says "so and so carried them to the title." However, even though a team may need a stud go-to guy in order to become the national champion, role players are almost as important. Last season, Jawad Williams did not get much publicity, nor did Jackie Manuel, but those two played major roles in winning the title for North Carolina. The....[MORE]

SCS.comONE ON ONE WITH CHRIS COGHLAN
February 14, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
University of Mississippi infielder Chris Coghlan was kind enough to take time for a SCS.com exclusive interview a short time ago. The junior, who was drafted by the Diamondbacks out of high school, was an All-SEC Freshman in 2004 and earned Second Team All-SEC honors last summer. He has been named to the Brooks Wallace Award Watch List and selected as a Collegiate Baseball Preseason All-American leading....[MORE]

By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Wow, things sure are crowded! Take a look at the Missouri Valley standings. Or the Big East standings. Or the Big Ten, Colonial, CUSA, Pac-10, or WAC standings. All of those conferences, and a number of others, have major log-jams at or near the top of the league, and there are only about four weeks left to decide who will come out on top. Among the top games on the schedule over the coming few days is one of the....[MORE]

February 10, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
For the second straight year, University of Pittsburgh second baseman Jim Negrych was kind enough to take time for a SCS.com exclusive interview leading up to the start of the season. The junior had two great seasons to get his Panther career started and was named Big East Rookie of the Year after his freshman campaign. His 16 homeruns led the Big East in 2005, and following that season, Baseball America named Negrych a....[MORE]

By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
We are rolling towards the finish line, the final few weeks of the 2006 college hoops regular season. Every game matters from here on out, and teams like Indiana, Maryland, Seton Hall, and Stanford certainly know that. Each of those bubble squads will take on one of the top twenty teams in the country this weekend, and those who pick up the win will take a huge step towards a possible waltz into the Big Dance come the month of....[MORE]

SCS.comDANCING LESSONS
February 9, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
When this Sunday rolls around, we will be a mere four weeks from Selection Sunday. It is the most wonderful day of the year for bracketologists like me. There will be a few head-scratchers, like Louisville as a 4-seed last year or New Mexico's inclusion in 1999, but the end result will be a championship bracket that will result in the crowning of a champion on April 3rd. No computers, no BCS, no home.....[MORE]

SCS.comPREVIEWING THE WILD, WILD WEST
February 8, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
The SEC West has proved to be arguably the toughest division in college baseball. The West has placed a team in the Super Regionals every year since they were instituted. All six teams have traditions of winning. The College World Series has hosted four of the six teams since the conference expansion in 1992. LSU is the only West team to win the national title during that period, but Alabama has finished second. If you can....[MORE]

By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
This is the best time of the year. Better than Christmas (well, maybe not), better than Thanksgiving (yes, even with turkey), better than anything you will find on the calendar. It's the stretch run of the college basketball, the last ten games that the Selection Committee finds oh-so-important. Key conference contests that will affect the league races and bubble games fill the remaining schedules of teams in the hunt for conference....[MORE]

SCS.comONE ON ONE WITH MAX SCHERZER
February 7, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
University of Missouri starting pitcher Max Scherzer was kind enough to take time for a SCS.com exclusive interview a short time ago. The junior, who was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals out of high school, went 9-4 and put together a 1.86 ERA in 2005 on his way to being named the Big XII Conference Pitcher of the Year. After being selected to a number of All-America squads last summer, the righty has already been named....[MORE]

The Super Bowl is over, and so from now until March, it's all about college hoops. The coming week's action gives us plenty to look forward to, including matchups like Wichita State's trip to Northern Iowa, Duke's visit to North Carolina, West Virginia's trek to Pittsburgh, and many more. We're at the halfway point of the conference schedules in many of the leagues around the country, so if your team is going to make a move in....[MORE]

February 3, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
University of Tennessee catcher J.P. Arencibia was kind enough to take time for a SCS.com exclusive interview a short time ago. The sophomore was a star in high school, tying Alex Rodriguez's career homerun mark at Westminster Christian in Miami. He was chosen by the Seattle Mariners in the 17th round of the 2004 MLB Draft but opted to attend UT, where he became an immediate star. Arencibia slammed 14 homeruns in....[MORE]

It's Super Bowl weekend, but that doesn't mean there isn't a load of college hoops on the menu over the next few days as well. There are a number of matchups featuring conference leaders on either Saturday or Sunday, including Michigan's trip to Iowa, Southern Illinois's visit to Wichita State, and Akron's trek to Kent State. It's also a weekend when resurging teams like Kentucky, Marquette, and Oklahoma will all be away....[MORE]

Twenty-six of the nation's best "mid-major"/non-BCS/non-Big Six/non-power conference teams will do battle on the many-tentacled World Wide Leader in Sports affiliates on February 18. Just about every college hoops fan knows about the Bracket Buster. A full 100 teams are participating this year (nearly a third of Division-I teams!), and this casting of a wide net has landed several intriguing matchups that could have an impact....[MORE]

By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Southeastern Conference is arguably the premier conference in college baseball. The SEC has dominated the college baseball landscape for many years now. However, no conference team has won a national championship since LSU took the prize in 2001. Where the SEC takes the prize is in gameday experiences. The top college venues are scattered around the SEC. From Alex Box to Sarge Frye, the SEC....[MORE]

By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Since the season began back in November, there have been an abundance of surprises and even more disappointments. Throughout December and January, several teams were considered dead, and most people, yours truly included, thought that these squads had no chance of making the NCAA Tournament. Bad losses early in the season to inferior teams, blowouts at home, injuries, and overall mediocrity combined to....[MORE]
