    Some people don’t mind a little showboating in sports. Other people can’t stand it. But one thing I think we can all agree on is that, if nothing else, showboating has a time and place. For example, if your basketball team is playing a far superior opponent, in their gym, on national television, and you’ve […]

    You normally associate scary neck injuries with sports like football and hockey—sports where huge men are supposed to slam into each other at high speeds. In basketball, however, dangerous collisions are more rare. Sure, rough physical contact is part of the game, but generally you aren’t supposed to slam into your opponents in such a […]

    What is it about a live sporting event that makes people want to dance? Have you ever wondered that? Is the energy and excitement of the crowd just so intoxicating that you have to shake your hips and flail your arms? Is there perhaps a deep abiding desire to maybe get on television? Is it […]

    Last night in Champagne, Illinois, the #8 Minnesota Golden Gophers showed the Big Ten and the rest of the country that they are not a fluke by spanking the #12 Illinois Fighting Illini 84-67 on their home court. This convincing victory extended the Gophers’ record to an impressive 15-1 (and 3-0 in the Big Ten), […]

    What’s worse than getting posterized? How about getting posterized by a high school sophomore while you get kicked in the face for good measure. That’s what happened to a player from Manila High School in Arkansas when his team faced Victor Dukes and intrastate rival Nettleton High School in a 2012 NEA Tournament game. Dukes, […]

    The people at the University of Oregon may want to install some stronger rims at Matthew Knight Arena before next season begins, because if the video below is any indication, the rims they currently have installed may not stand much of a chance once Jordan Bell joins the team. Bell is one of the Ducks’ […]

    Size may be important in the game of basketball, but it isn’t everything. Muggsy Bogues and Spud Webb demonstrated just that during their playing days in the NBA, as both players went on to have successful professional basketball careers, despite standing only 5’3″ and 5’7″, respectively. And now, it is 11-year-old Julian Newman who is showing the […]

    This Might Be the Worst Free Throw of All Time (Video)

    Last week we told you about the worst half-court shot ever attempted. But as bad as that was, the guy who attempted it at least had plenty of excuses to fall back on. After all, a lot can go wrong when you’re trying to hurl a basketball through as 18-inch hoop that is 47 feet […]

    The Minnesota Golden Gophers aren’t really a college basketball powerhouse. In the last 20 years they’ve only made seven appearances in the NCAA Tournament, but four of those seasons (1994-1999) were later forfeited due to NCAA violations, and their most recent appearance came in 2010. However, the Gophers are looking pretty strong this year. They’re […]
