    The Drexel Dragons entered last night’s CAA Championship Game on a 19-game winning streak, but despite all the success that they have had during the 2011-12 NCAA basketball season, they may have been stripped of their chances of making the NCAA Tourney following a 59-56 loss to last year’s Cinderella team, the VCU Rams.

    It won’t be long before Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger is in the NBA getting posterized by Blake Griffin, but until that time comes, he’ll simply have to settle with getting posterized by little-known college players like Purdue’s Kelsey Barlow. This massive crowning of Sullinger would account for two of Barlow’s 14 points on the evening […]

    During a high school basketball game between two schools whose names I am unaware of, a player made a shot that will likely land him on several highlight packages around America…for all the wrong reasons.
