SCS.comON THE DIAMOND: THE WEEKEND AHEAD
March 31, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
It's the final weekend of college hoops, which means attention will soon turn fully towards the sport of college baseball. And at a perfect time, I might add. Conference play is beginning to heat up all around the country, including in the ACC where Clemson and Miami will do battle down on the beach this weekend. Also in the ACC over the weekend Florida State and North Carolina will go head-to-head, while the SEC West's....[MORE]

SCS.comAN UNEXPECTED CHAMPION
March 30, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
The NCAA Tournament always contains its share of thrills, upsets, Cinderellas, and surprising runs. This season has been no exception with most of the hullabaloo created by the George Mason Patriots (see Jeff's "Who Are These Guys?" article from Tuesday). As surprising as GMU's run has been, all four of these schools were unlikely picks for the Final Four when this season started. In the preseason, only UCLA....[MORE]

SCS.comNATIONAL SEEDS THE KEY TO OMAHA
March 30, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
Since the Super Regional concept was instituted in 1999, eighty-five percent of the teams that hosted the Super Regional series have advanced to Omaha. The postseason crowds are always one-sided since the host team has the advantage of having an on-campus site. College baseball is unique from football and basketball; those postseason events are held at neutral sites, and the crowds are usually not as one-sided. If you....[MORE]

SCS.comWHO ARE THESE GUYS?
March 28, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Where did they come from? What are they doing here? No, this isn't the introduction to the newest alien movie. We are talking about the biggest longshot in Final Four history. We are talking about the George Mason Patriots. As soon as the buzzer sounded in overtime of their Elite Eight game against Connecticut, the entire country paused to make sense of what happened. A #11 seed that came into the NCAA....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM HANDS OUT POSTSEASON HONORS
March 28, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor & Staff
The SCS.com staff has spoken, and it's time to hand out honors to college basketball's elite for the 2005-2006 season. The two regular hoops beat writers as well as the SCS.com editor have voted and compiled a list of the top players from around the country. Included is a look at the All-American squads, the Freshman All-American team, and the national player, coach, and freshman of the year. Without further delay....[MORE]

SCS.comTHE ROAD TO OMAHA: PART I OF II
March 27, 2006
By Brandon, SCS.com Guest Writer
As I sat down to write this article, I struggled with what to write about. It?s not that there aren?t a million teams that are headline worthy: Mississippi State?s impressive record, Texas?s resurgence in Austin, Florida State?s winning percentage, Nebraska?s dominance in Lincoln, Kentucky?s surprising victories over Tennessee and LSU. The list could go on and on. It was suggested that I break down the conferences and talk about....[MORE]

SCS.comPARTY CRASHERS
March 23, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Despite all of the talk about upsets, parity, and the closing of the gap between "power" conference teams and "mid-majors," the NCAA Tournament bracket has pretty much followed the chalk. Of the remaining Sweet 16 teams, only three truly qualify as surprise teams: Wichita State, George Mason, and Bradley. Georgetown slipping by Ohio State was a bit of an eyebrow-raiser, but most serious hoops fans were not....[MORE]

SCS.comMAKING A NAME FOR THEMSELVES
March 22, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Kevin Pittsnogle. Alando Tucker. Randy Foye. Each of these players is now a household name in college basketball. Why? The 2005 NCAA Tournament. They all rode big games in the Big Dance to preseason accolades this season. And they are also now three of the best players in the country. It happens every season. Players that were solid during the regular season break out in the NCAA Tournament....[MORE]

SCS.comBULLDOGS #1 AND STILL UNDEFEATED
March 22, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
The Mississippi State Bulldogs are undefeated and ranked number one in the country. MSU had high expectations in 2006, and thus far they have lived up to the hype. The Bulldogs are 16-0 and 2-0 in the SEC. The last time State were ranked in the top spot was way back in 1993. Coach Ron Polk is in the midst of his second stint in Starkville, and it appears that he has the program right were he wants it. The Bulldogs were....[MORE]

SCS.comA STATISTICAL APPROACH TO DANCING
March 14, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
There are many methods you can employ when filling out your NCAA bracket. Many of us who keep up with all 300-plus teams throughout the season sort of have a "feel" for each one by this point in the year and could already tell you who we liked as sleeper picks before the bracket was even released. There are others who don't pay attention all season long but pick just based on the reputation of certain teams....[MORE]

SCS.comQUICK GLANCE: WINNERS, SLEEPERS, & UPSETS
March 14, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
No more "Bubble Watch." No more "Bracket Projection." The real thing is here. That's right, folks, the NCAA Tournament is finally upon us. For most of us, it's a very exciting, yet nervous, time of the year as we are all going to be filling out brackets over the next few days. In other words, Happy Holidays. I'm not going to comment on the mistakes and wrong choices that the Selection Committee made; another staff member has....[MORE]

SCS.comBREAKING NEWS: BRACKETVILLE DESTROYED
March 13, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
The fallout from this year's bracket has left a long, wide path of destruction right down the center of Bracketville. Resident bracketologists across the country are picking up the pieces of their once comfortable existence and now must attempt a reconstruction in the wake of last night's storm. One bracketologist somberly stated, "It's just hard, you know. You spend years building a life for yourself, and then one storm comes along and....[MORE]

SCS.comHOW TO PICK FOR SUCCESS
March 13, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Now that the bracket is set and all the hoop-la of conference tournaments is over, we can move onto the madness. I've seen some success in past years in my local bracket pools, and so I'm offering up some tips. If you want to win the SCS.com contest, have a legitimate shot at the local office, or bring home family bragging rights, pay attention! This is my best tip, and so here it is at the front. Instead of filling out the bracket....[MORE]

SCS.comSCS.COM BRACKET PROJECTION #6
March 10, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Selection Sunday is just hours away, which means it's time to take another look at who is in and who is out of the 2006 NCAA Tournament. The past few days of conference tournament action have affected the status of a number of teams, including the likes of Texas A&M, Michigan, Seton Hall, California, Cincinnati, and more. In addition to handing out the bids and seeding all of the squads, we also project where each team's....[MORE]

SCS.comON THE BUBBLE: SATURDAY NIGHT INSOMNIA
March 9, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
Just a little over three days until Selection Sunday, the waters are getting muddier instead of clearer. Much like Professor Marvel in the Wizard of Oz, most bracketologists are looking for some kind of slick trick to fool all of the runaway Dorothies out there, but there is still a lot of uncertainty. The conference tourneys will make or break a number of teams, though last night's Big East action certainly did not help....[MORE]

SCS.comQUICK HITTERS IN 2006
March 9, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
The 2006 college baseball season is upon on us, and this year appears to be just as exciting. The preseason #1 team has struggled, and others have emerged as contenders. After nearly a month of play, we have not been disappointed thus far. The season is still very young, and we as fans have lots of excitement yet to look forward to. The Texas Longhorns won the College World Series in 2005 as they came from behind in the....[MORE]

SCS.comSURGING & SLUMPING, BUT ALL STILL DANCING
March 8, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
"Last ten games." Everyone talks about it, and you might not hear a more-used expression during Championship Week other than "RPI." The Selection Committee looks at it to help determine who's in and who's out of the NCAA Tournament. Clubs that are on a hot streak are more likely to get a bid than a squad that has struggled down the stretch. Moreover, when you are filling out your brackets on the days following....[MORE]

SCS.comSURVEY SAYS: WHO'S IN AND WHO'S OUT
March 8, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor & Staff
It's that time of year when everyone everywhere is projecting which bubble teams will get the call on Selection Sunday, which is now just four days away. We at SCS.com are certainly no exception. Each staff member, whether they cover baseball, basketball, or football, was asked to gauge the dancing chances of 22 teams that most experts believe are currently sitting atop the NCAA bubble. They were allowed to select just 11....[MORE]

March 6, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
With Selection Sunday less than one week away, it's time to take yet another look at who is in and who is out of the 2006 NCAA Tournament. Included is a look at the complete field of sixty-five, as well as a glance at who is sitting just on the outside and the others that are also under consideration. In addition to seeding all of the squads, we also project where their first round matchup will take place and how the four....[MORE]

SCS.comCOLLEGE HOOPS: THE WEEKEND AHEAD
March 3, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
While conference tournaments are underway in a number of leagues, many teams will be playing their final regular season game of the 2006 season this weekend, and there is much to be decided in terms of both conference titles and NCAA bids. SCS.com breaks down all the games, separating the matchups that will determine league championships from those that have bubble implications. We also preview the top game of the....[MORE]

SCS.comSTUCK IN THE MIDDLE
March 2, 2006
By Cortney, SCS.com Staff Writer
I spend a good deal of my writing time poring over the profiles of bubble teams this time of year. Fellow SCS.com writer Jeff correctly identified and broke down the runaway one seeds this season earlier this week. But in between the 11 and 12 seed Bubble Boys and Duke, UConn, Villanova and Memphis, a host of teams with real shots to go deep in March lie in wait. There are some 2, 3, 4 and even lower seeds that have....[MORE]

SCS.comRICE OWLS: THE NEXT DYNASTY?
March 1, 2006
By Ben, SCS.com Staff Writer
Rice University is a small private university located in Houston, Texas with an enrollment of about 4,400. The school has not had a lot of athletic prowess through the years. In fact, the biggest thing to ever happen at Rice was hosting the Super Bowl in the 1960's, but they are beginning to turn some heads on the diamond. The most recent Conference USA member started in the old Southwest Conference and then was....[MORE]
