Canisius tames Bearcats, Dickinson freaks out

If you’ve played or watched competitive sports before, you’ve seen it happen: the unnecessary frustration-based foul that briefly puts a player in danger. Ben Dickinson of the Binghamton Bearcats, a team still win-less in 11 tries this year, released some of his pent-up rage last night. 

Leading 74-66 with 20 seconds left, the Griffins broke the…

Tsuj’s Ten: College basketball, 12/27

From the Grinch's Facebook page

I hope glorious, relaxing and enlightening holidays were had by all. Admittedly, I spent most of my Christmas Day eating and watching the NBA, which doesn’t really do a ton of good for the Tsuj’s Ten college basketball blog. Nothing says “holiday” better than a wince-inducing Blake Griffin dunk and several sugar cookies with those delightful…

Tsuj’s Ten: College basketball, 12/20

The University at Buffalo’s men’s basketball match-up tonight against BYU brings back Jimmer nostalgia. One year ago, when the #16-ranked Cougars stormed into Alumni Arena and escaped with a 90-82 victory, Jimmer Fredette scored 28 of his 34 points in the second half, prompting Reggie Witherspoon to refer positively to the BYU guard as “a bad…

They’re sitting at opposite ends of the spectrum: the University at Buffalo, 6-2 overall—all non-conference, rests comfortably during its 10-day lay-off, knowing it owns a quality win (Dayton) and no truly embarrassing losses, while Canisius, 1-7 overall, 0-2 in the MAAC, doesn’t have quite the luxury. While Canisius certainly has more questions…

Let’s get into the 10 quickly since not much has happened since Monday.

1) Star Kentucky swing-man Terrence Jones isn’t getting much love for his play in the Wildcats’ loss to Indiana. ESPN’s Dick Vitale and Jay Bilas shoveled criticism at Jones’ effort, and Kentucky head coach John Calipari echoed the analysts’ sentiments. Wildcat nation is…

I really like when John Calipari frowns. Am I a really sinister, spiteful person? Not really—the Kentucky head coach has been blessed with such an abundance of riches that he’s easy to root against. Don’t get me wrong, Calipari might be the best recruiter in the land, but he’s positioned his program as more of an NBA prep school instead of a…

Champion Flyers provide stiff test for Bulls

Considering the rise of Boise State, TCU and Houston in college football and Butler, Gonzaga and San Diego State in basketball, the line has really been blurred between mid-major and high-major schools—is there really still a gap in competitiveness?

The Dayton Flyers stomped the notion that mid-majors remain underdogs in the Old Spice Classic,…
