  • UNC Runs Four Corners Offense in Honor of Dean Smith (Video)

    UNC Runs Four Corners Offense in Honor of Dean Smith (Video)

    The late, great Dean Smith was the man responsible for creating the four corners offense and using it during college basketball games  So in their first home game since Smith’s passing on February 7, the UNC Tar Heels honored the coaching legend by running the four corners offense on their first offensive possession.  And much […]

    Purdue’s Jon Octeus Brings the Thunder Down on Indiana (Video)

    Jon Octeus of Purdue may not be an NBA player (yet?), but this monster dunk definitely outperforms the ranks of college basketball. This play doesn’t lend itself to TOO much analysis, but that doesn’t mean it’s not plenty fun to watch. The Octe-gon (my new nickname for him), drives, pulls back, and releases with the […]

    The Las Vegas Strip Dims Its Lights in Tribute To Jerry Tarkanian (Video)

    Last night’s tribute to Jerry Tarkanian was touching, epic, and must have been a gigantic logistical nightmare. For three minutes last night, the Las Vegas strip went dark(ish) as 40 hotels and casinos killed all their non-essential lights in tribute to Jerry Tarkanian, the famous coach of UNLV who passed away earlier this week. While this […]

    Welp, if your’e wondering why bad things happen to good people, we don’t have an answer, but we’ve got another case for your files. Here, we see a little girl playing on the court of a basketball game in the background when the Southern Illinois mascot just runs her over. The Southern Illinois Salukis (whatever) […]

    Kentucky’s Devin Booker Takes Out Tennessee Cheerleader (Video)

    Kentucky’s Devin Booker had himself quite the night on Tuesday.  In front of a hostile crowd at Thompson-Boling Arena in Tennessee, the freshman guard made his mark during the Wildcats’ 66-48 victory over the Volunteers, recording 18 points, severn rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one nasty takedown of an unsuspecting Tennessee cheerleader. Impressive stuff, but […]

    Seton Hall’s Sterling Gibbs Ejected For Punching Villanova Player (Video)

    Things got ugly during the latter portion of last night’s Big East match-up between Seton Hall and No. 6 Villanova, as the Pirates’ Sterling Gibbs was assessed a flagrant foul 2 and ejected for punching the Wildcats’ Ryan Arcidiacono in the face. The incident occurred with just under five minutes remaining in the game and Nova […]

  • Arizona’s Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Eats It on a Fastbreak (Video)

    Arizona’s Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Eats It on a Fastbreak (Video)

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson of Arizona probably has a little egg on his face after Friday night’s game against the Washington Huskies. The Wildcat found himself in the fortunate position of having a clear, and I mean CLEAR, fastbreak.  But through the fault of a poorly-mopped floor, slippery shoes, inner-ear imbalance, or a vengeful God, he slipped […]

  • This Rutgers Layup Fail Is Just So Sad (Video)

    This Rutgers Layup Fail Is Just So Sad (Video)

    Layups are the easiest shots in basketball. In fact, they’re so easy that we use the term layup to describe other things that are really easy. Like “This election will be a layup for the incumbent,” or “How’d the interview go? It was a total layup!” Unfortunately, in sports as in life, even the easiest […]

    Georgia Coach Mark Fox’s Voice is Horrifying (Video)

    Georgia head coach Mark Fox was not feeling 100 percent during last night’s game at Texas A&M, but he trooped it out and kept it together long enough to watch his Bulldogs earn the 62-53 victory.  It was a great effort from Fox and his players in hostile territory, but the coach probably should have quit […]

    Junior College Player Throws Down Monster Dunk During Practice (Video)

    We don’t know his name, but would the player for Alabama junior college Enterprise please come forward and claim your 15 minutes of Internet fame for this monster dunk? The anonymous leaper seems to come out of nowhere in this Vine and jackknife when he slams the ball down with both hands. You know what […]

    John Calipari Gets Photobombed by the Player He’s Criticizing (Video)

    John Calipari got an unexpected visit during an interview by the very player he was criticizing at that exact time, Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns got a technical for pulling himself up by the basket, and that tech almost cost Kentucky their game against LSU. Not quite – the Wildcats are still undefeated – but close. They won […]
