Missouri, VCU, and why Kentucky's non-conference slate has some potholes. The Rothstein Files @FanRagSports: http://bit.ly/2z2cn7Y  #BBN


Quote
1. Missouri’s freshman class is about much more than Michael Porter Jr.

The potential No. 1 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft gave the Tigers’ program a chance to be immediately relevant upon Cuonzo Martin’s arrival, but the other pieces in this class give Missouri a chance to have longevity beyond Porter’s time in Columbia...

3. Kentucky’s early schedule has hidden potholes.

There’s more to this slate than just the marquee games.

John Calipari’s squad faces Kansas in the Champions Classic on Nov. 14th, UCLA in the CBS Sports Classic, and also hosts both Virginia Tech and Louisville at Rupp Arena prior to the start of SEC play. But in addition to all of those high-level tilts, there are other games on the Wildcats’ non-conference schedule to make note of...

68 things to look forward to during the 2017-18 college basketball season. STORY @FanRagSports:


Quote
10. The SEC

This isn’t just a football conference anymore. After putting three teams in the Elite Eight last spring, the SEC is primed for a bigger piece of college basketball’s pie. Multiple coaches in this league believe the conference’s current depth is better than its been in over a decade — it’s hard to argue when you look the caliber of each roster. This looks like a seven-bid league on paper.

68. Michael Porter Jr.

The best for last? Quite possibly. The 6-10 freshman has all the requisites to be the number one pick in the 2018 NBA Draft and his commitment single-handedly made Missouri an NCAA Tournament contender for the upcoming season. Cuonzo Martin’s first season is Columbia will be appointment television because of Porter.

Bama basketball’s Braxton Key to have knee surgery, miss start of season


Quote
Key, who averaged 12.0 points per game last season, has a meniscus tear in his left knee.

“We’ll know more about his time frame, how long he’s going to be out after surgery,” Coach Avery Johnson said. “Life is not a perfect world, but I like the way our guys responded.”

Key was one of four players to sit out of Monday’s 75-64 exhibition victory against Alabama-Huntsville, as the NCAA notified Alabama earlier in the day that freshman guard Collin Sexton had not had his eligibility reinstated by the NCAA.

Johnson said that Sexton was not being directly investigated and he hoped for a quick resolution.

Bama basketball: AD Greg Byrne releases statement on Collin Sexton’s NCAA eligibility

Quote
“The NCAA informed us late this afternoon that Collin Sexton has not had his eligibility reinstated by the NCAA,” Bryne said in a statement. “We don’t have any further information at this time, but we will continue to cooperate with the NCAA and work toward a resolution that results in Collin’s timely reinstatement.

“While we are disappointed, the right decision was to err on the side of caution for tonight’s exhibition game.”

Sexton, a 5-star prospect, was expected to start at one of the guard spots for the Crimson Tide this season.

Sexton’s eligibility issues stem from the resignation of former Alabama staff Kobie Baker.

Baker allegedly took part in a bribery scheme where he accepted money to direct a Crimson Tide basketball player to sign with an Atlanta financial adviser after entering the NBA Draft.

Personnel issues at both Alabama & Auburn could open up the door for others in the SEC. COLUMN @FanRagSports:


Quote
Arkansas: Veteran guards win in college basketball and Mike Anderson’s got three of them in seniors Anton Beard, Jaylen Barford and Daryl Macon. Add five-star big man Daniel Gafford, a 6-11 freshman who should step in seamlessly for Moses Kingsley in the pivot, and there’s no reason why the Razorbacks shouldn’t find themselves once again in the mix for a NCAA Tournament. Remember, this team has several players back from a squad that pushed eventual national champion North Carolina to the brink during last March’s Round of 32.

Texas A&M's junior trio of Tyler Davis, D.J. Hogg, and Admon Gilder were a combined 23-32 against West Virginia. Accounted for 65 of team's 88.


Kentucky's starting lineup last night resembled a vintage Jim Boeheim team at Syracuse. Is more zone in the Cats' future?

So impressed with Arkansas. Razorbacks thrash Bucknell by 28 after beating Samford on Friday by 39. Really good basketball team.

SEC has lived up to the billing during opening weekend. And Florida has yet to play a game. League looks primed for a break through.

Duke, Kentucky's PG situation, and why depth may be overrated. The Rothstein Files @FanRagSports: http://bit.ly/2A02yZr

Quote
In Tuesday night’s loss to Kansas at the Champions Classic in Chicago, the Wildcats went back-and-forth between freshmen Quade Green and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander at the one, with neither player separating himself from the other.

During the final 10 minutes, Calipari rotated both, even playing them together for a brief period before ultimately closing the game with Gilgeous-Alexander on the ball.

From Rose to Tyreke Evans to John Wall to Brandon Knight to Marquis Teague to Tyler Ulis to De’Aaron Fox, Calipari has always had a high-level floor general when he had teams that had a chance to play deep into the NCAA Tournament.

Is Green or Gilgeous-Alexander cut from that same cloth?

Not initially.

The duo combined for 12 points and six assists against Kansas, and for Kentucky to truly get into a rhythm as a team, it needs one of these players to truly emerge between now and the start of SEC play.

3. Depth can be overrated

Michigan State may find that out firsthand.

No. 10 USC 93, @VandyMBB 89 (overtime): 5 things we learned http://www.tennessean.com/story/sports/college/vanderbilt/2017/11/19/usc-vanderbilt-ncaa-mens-basketball/879513001/ … via @tennessean


Quote
Bryce Drew’s Vanderbilt Commodores finished an up-and-down week with a gut-punch of a setback, losing 93-89 in overtime to No. 10 USC on Sunday night at Memorial Gym.

The Commodores lost 69-60 on Monday at Belmont, which also beat local rival Middle Tennessee State this week. But Vandy rebounded to get a quality win over always-solid UNC-Asheville, 79-76, on Friday at home.

Then came USC and a wild, emotional game in front of a Memorial crowd that was well short of capacity but loud. Vandy led by 14 in the first half before a 15-0 run by USC to end the half – featuring five straight USC threes and four straight Vandy turnovers.

Vandy got the lead up to 10 in the second, but the Trojans sent it to the extra session with a late three from senior guard Jordan McLaughlin (career-high 35 points). The Trojans controlled the extra session.

"It was just a great college basketball game and we were on the fortunate side," USC coach Andy Enfield said.

Like I told our team, nobody should be happy in there. ... We don’t want to be that close and let it slip away, especially at home," Drew said afterward.

Vanderbilt (2-2) next heads to Brooklyn, N.Y., to play Virginia on Thursday in the NIT Season Tip-Off. The Commodores will play Rhode Island or Seton Hall on Friday in Brooklyn.

Not sure if Vandy’s an NCAAT squad this season, but USC gets a good road W by coming back to win in OT in Nashville.

I’m not big on November Hot Takes in college hoops, but … man, the SEC might really be pretty salty this season.

Good for the league. Good for the few of us in the league who prefer covering hoops, too.

Kentucky Insider: SEC basketball is for real this time, which means the young Wildcats better buckle up

Quote
The conference has built on a strong finish in the 2017 NCAA Tournament — five teams invited, three in the Elite Eight, South Carolina in the Final Four — with a hot start to the 2017-18 season. Consider this: Just three weeks in, the SEC already has 10 non-conference wins over teams ranked in the top 50 of Ken Pomeroy’s advanced statistical rankings (which we’ll use exclusively in this piece).

Oh, and none of those have been by the Wildcats...
